If you read our review on Krave before you won't be surprised by this article. Krave is now on the map mainly because of their menu. Cuisine from around the world grace their plates daily so why not sushi. They now offer a sushi buffet every Thursday and The Bill Check was there to experience it first-hand
With a complimentary cocktail, six different rolls to choose from, soup, salads and desserts, your money will be well spent. The experience is both beautiful and intimate, screens showing the restaurant's rolls help to whet your appetite while the light show adds to the mood. Eye catching displays make the food more enticing while servers help to make the evening comfortable.
I think this cocktail is perfect with sushi. A beautiful melon after taste with the signature tang of a Mojito
Not overpowered by alcohol but light and refreshing.
If you've never had sake because you can't wrap your mind around warm alcohol, I suggest you put your reservations aside briefly and give it a go. Krave ensures it's as authentic as possible by serving it in a Japanese tea / sake cup.
Sweet dressing covers crisp, bright green Brocolini stalks. Fantastic way to open the appetite and not filling.
Rice Noodle Salad
Rice noodles tossed in subtle flavours of sesame with a mild spicy after taste.
Shitake and Cremini Mushroom Soup.
A brilliant take on the ever popular miso soup. Light and packed with flavour. Another great addition to the buffet.
Vegetarians no need to feel left out. Krave's vegetarian roll is well put together and can stand up to any other on their spread. Vegetables wrapped in rice and topped with avocado is only made better with a dot of sriracha.
Crab & Plantain Roll
While I'm not a lover of fried Plantain on sushi, Krave's composition is one of the better ones I've had. Crab and cucumber fills the roll garnished by a simple spicy mayo. It's clean, fresh and not overly garnished.
Note. White wine preferably Pinot Grigio will accompany these tolls nicely.
Tempura fans, yes it's on the menu. Tempura crab topped with pineapple salsa. I don't know a single Trini who won't enjoy this roll. Pineapple salsa reminds us of Maracas drives, pairing it with crab, well you just want to be on the beach.
Panko fried tuna topped with sautéed mushrooms and more tuna. You hear fried tuna and you don't exactly jump on that wagon but again, Krave's composition is flawless. Fried tuna goes with mushrooms perfectly. Earthy and comforting I recommend this roll to new sushi eaters.
Shrimp Lovers Roll
It's just what it says, shrimp, shrimp and you guessed it, more shrimp. Tempura shrimp and cream cheese topped with shrimp and garnished with spicy mayo. Beautiful looking roll, clean and simple.
Son to their ever popular Emperor Roll, this roll has all you expect but on a slightly smaller scale. Panko breaded shrimp, fried. The entire roll is then breaded, fried and topped with crab meat tossed in spicy mayo. This roll packs a punch. Subtly out the door, this is one to remember.
Duce de Leche Cheesecake
Creamy and rich without being heavy. Just the right amount of sweetness to end your meal and there's no need for elastic pants.
This is not for the faint of heart. Alcohol flavour is more prominent than coffee and the missing the taste of mascarpone cheese. Tastes a bit generic and does not match the Krave standards.
The Bill Check recommends Krave Sushi Buffet for great food in a casual and intimate setting.
