Saying that Mark is a sushi lover is a total understatement. He
We were invited to sample their newest offering every Wednesday which they fondly call Bubbles, Bites & Beats. The idea is plain and simple. Every Wednesday night, you get to enjoy glasses of bubbles at AED 20 each while matching it with Japanese bites (ala carte menu at 25% off) with uplifting beats on the background. How about that?
We were served with glasses of cold Canadian bubbly along with Salmon and Tuna Sashimi the moment we settled on our seats. If you have been reading my blog or following me on Instagram, I have confessed how I'm not quite a fan of fish in general, let alone raw fish. But the gorgeous plating of the sashimi got me. I'm still not a fan, but I found the tuna sashimi more bearable than the salmon. Mark on the other hand finished it all off!

I'm in love with these sea bass, ebi, and negima robata from @katanadubai! Robatayaki, or simply robata, refers to a method of cooking in #Japanese cuisine, similar to barbecue, wherein food on skewers are grilled over hot charcoal. • Enjoy glasses of bubbly at AED 20 each matched with #Japanese bites like sushi, sashimi, and robata (25% off) plus some uplifting beats every Wednesday in #KatanaDubai's Bubbles, Bites, ad Beats! #zomato #zomatouae
The lychee flavor was not evident that Mark almost finished the sorbet thinking it was lime. He only confirmed that it wasn't when he finally got to try the one on my side, right when he almost devoured the whole lychee sorbet. It would have been fine for me to have the lime instead if it wasn't a tad too acidic with a bitter aftertaste. The crispy crepe-like spirals with black sesame seeds were good though.
