As of July 2011, I have to let every visitors of this blog know that Honmono Grand will no longer be operated under Honmono Group and has changed its name to other due to some INCIDENT of the landlord where the restaurant is situated. Below is my comment about Honmono Sushi but were taken at Honmono Grand. However, every dishes in the menu are the same for every branches.

Honmono Sushi is a restaurant chain that is specialise in sushi and is suitable for every occasion. The restaurant is decorated in Japanese style with friendly atmosphere. There is also a sushi counter, which can serve more than 10 customers at the same time. Chef Boontham or Arjarn Bantoon, head chefs and co-owner, would be supervising the sushi counter himself. 

In case sushi counter is your choice, a variety of seaweed to couple with sushi will always be served.

While penguin decided to have sushi, bunny chose to have sashimi. Our meal began with Hamachi (Yellow Tail), which was just freshly arrived. Freshness, sweet, and firm meat were beyond expectation (8/10).

Next was Shima-Aji (White Trevally), another beyond expectation at Honmono. For sushi, it was served with Uni sauce, which was sweet and creamy (9/10).

Next inline was Halibut. Sashimi was Hirame on-top with Ume Shio (Plum Salt), while sushi was Aburi-engawa on-top with Ume Shio. This white fish was juicy and little fatty. Ume Shio incorporated with freshness of this fish well. Another wonderful experience (9/10).

The Chef then chose to serve Kampachi (Amberjack). The sushi was another extraordinary of Honmono, it was Aburi-kampachi Saikyo on-top with Truffle. The flesh was softer than Hamachi but still fatty. The miso sauce was sweet and intense in flavour, which went really well with truffle (9/10).

Ama-ebi (Sweet Shrimp) was the next piece. Nothing special but freshness and sauce that was made from fat from the head (8/10).

I was then served with Uni & Sujiko Gunkanmaki (Sea Urchin & Marinated Salmon Roe) and Aburi-sake Tare (Grilled Salmon with Tare Sauce). Unfornately, both pieces looked too great that I had  forgotten to take photo T____T. Uni & Sujiko went together fabulously. While uni was sweet, sujiko was lightly salty (from marination) with concentrate taste and sticky texture (8/10). Aburi-sake Tare was similar to Salmon Saikyo (7/10) but tare sauce (sweetened and thickened soy sauce) was in place of miso sauce, with grated yuzu on-top (8/10).

Maguro Akami (7/10) and Salmon Toro (7/10) were chosen for sashimi.

O-toro (Fatty Tuna) was served next. It was fresh and just melt in the mouth, and the flesh had highly marbled fat. Winter season is indeed the best time for tuna (9/10). Additionally, Aburi-toro with truffle was also unique (9/10).

Foie Gras sushi with grated Yuzu (6/10) and Negi Toro Maki (chopped Toro and spring onion roll) (7/10) were the last.

To end up, we were served with soup and melon, which were refreshing. The bill for two of us was ~ THB4,200. Overall, 7/10 should be suitable as excellent sushi was let down by not up to standard services, of course not the Chef himself.
