Salmon overloaded. Not only are they popular for their thick cuts of salmon sashimi, but their rolls were also pretty good too! Getting their rolls for half the usual price every (roll with us) Wednesday is a steal.

The rockstar roll combines seared salmon draped over fried cheddar and generously topped with torched mentaiko sauce. While the cheese and mentaiko stood out in this roll, the salmon was also nicely seared. This would be good for sharing as the rich and creamy flavour may get a little jelak to finish alone.

The other roll I tried was all salmon all the time that has salmon sashimi, cucumber and avocado covered with seared salmon and tobiko and drizzled with yuzu mayo.

Rockstar Roll 》$9.95 (U.P. $19.90)
All Salmon All The Time》$9.45 (U.P. $18.90)

One of the perks of omakase is the firsthand experience we get sitting at the bar counter and relishing the most authentic Japanese dining experience. We get to observe the chef as he prepares individual pieces of sushi right before us. It reminds me of my omakase experience at one of the sushi bars at Tsukiji fish market.

There were 2 chefs and each of the chefs would handle 4 guests which gave a very personal touch. The chef would only serve the next course when we are done with the previous. The fishes were oh-so-fresh and solid! Each course was paired so well with different sauces that nothing tasted similar throughout the whole course.

My 12-Course Sushi is as follows
- Hirame Flat Fish
- Squid
- Prawn
- Sea Bream
- Japanese Groupa
- Golden Threadfin Bream (Not in Picture)
- Golden Eye Snapper (Not in Picture)
- Chutoro
- Otoro with Soy Sauce Foam (Not in Picture)
- Hototo (Not in Picture)
- Horse Mackeral (Aji)
- Sea Urchin

Spicy scallop, crabmeat, cucumber and cream cheese deep fried with eel sauce and spicy mayo. It was served piping hot and we were cautioned to bite it slowly as it is very hot and the sauce may come bursting out.

The tempura batter wasn’t too thick and there is a combination of textures in the sushi roll. The scallop has a chewy bite with some crunch from the cucumber and creaminess from the cream cheese. Give this a try if you are bored of traditional sushi but their sauce did not fare as well although this was one of their signature dishes 》$18

Crabmeat salad, tempura bits, cream cheese, cucumber topped with grilled unagi, sauce and goma (sesame) 》$17

Eel slices were fresh and lightly grilled, topped with a dollop of spicy sauce that gives a mild spicy kick. I can't really taste the crabmeat salad but the rest of the ingredients go well with one another. I like the addition of tempura bits in there which added some crunch to the whole dish.

Similar to the Maki-San concept, we get to customise our very own sushi bowl with a choice of base (green mix / warm sweet potato noodles, furikake white rice / mixed warm brown rice), accompanied by a choice of 1 main, 1 sauce, 2 toppings and 3 fillers.

My order goes like this
Base - Mixed Warm Brown Rice
Main - Teriyaki Chicken (?)
Sauce - Yoozoo Sesame Sauce
Toppings - Fish Flakes, Bonito Furikake
Fillers - Kani Sticks, Roasted 'shrooms (+$0.50), Ebiko

I actually ordered warm sweet potato noodles as my base but they gave me mixed warm brown rice instead 😦 The teriyaki chicken didn't taste like teriyaki and I'm unsure if they threw in the cajun chicken breast as these were the only two types of chicken shown on the checklist. Sauce with yuzu sesame was a good choice with a myriad of flavours and the roasted shrooms were something that turned out unexpectedly better as compared to the rest of the items in the bowl 》$7.90 + $0.50 Roasted 'shrooms

Similar to the Maki-San concept, we get to customise our very own sushi rolls with a choice of white/mixed brown rice served in nori wrap as a base, accompanied with a choice of 1 main, 1 sauce, 2 toppings and 3 fillers.

My order goes like this
Base - Mixed brown rice
Main - Salmon sashimi (+$2.50)
Sauce - Spicy Mayo
Toppings - Tempura Crunch, Nori Chicken Floss
Fillers - Sliced Avocado, Tamago, Ebiko

Perhaps I was expecting it to be similar to Maki-San since Wooshi was from the same founder but the whole roll that I ordered lacks flavour. Unlike sushi rice which usually comes with vinegar and a sticky texture, the brown rice was merely loose plain brown rice that couldn't hold well. The amount of sauce given was too little for us to even savour it and the only flavours I can taste was some saltiness from the chicken floss and sweetness from tamago and ebiko 》$7.90 + $2.50 Salmon Sashimi

A wordplay of 寿司家, Sushi Plus is a contemporary sushi dining concept from Sushi Express. You still get to enjoy economical prices starting from $1.50++ with the addition of premium items that cannot be found at Sushi Express outlets. Ordering was fuss-free with our mobile phone using the QR code that was given to us. Orders will then arrive swiftly on a sushi train, similar to Genki Sushi and Sushiro concept.

I felt that their quality is better than Sushi Express outlets with very economical prices. Of course, you have to be realistic and not expect high quality tasting sushi at such a price. The thick-cut salmon was really thick, fresh and firm which made us order more after having one. The garlic butter scallop was interesting and they have really cheap and good teriyaki scallop skewers. If you love clams, go for their miso soup with clams that come with a generous portion of clams swimming in there.

This sushi restaurant has two-tiered system conveyor belts. The belt at the bottom acts as a normal belt filled with plates where we can just take what we want and the belt on top are where the food we ordered from the tablet gets delivered to us.

The ingredients used are imported from Japan where they serve good quality and fresh slices of fish at an affordable price. The fish-to-rice ratio was great and I do see myself coming back for more wallet-friendly and quality sushi.

Some of the sushi that I have tried are Fatty Tuna, Scallop, Salmon, Young Yellowtail, Albacore Tuna, Vinegared Mackerel, Tuna and Swordfish

Fresh and decent sushi to add-on for dinner. The sushi is handcrafted with a good ratio of topping to rice. The freshwater eel was firm and soft, lightly coated with teriyaki sauce and topped with a slice of herb butter. The shrimp was also fresh, topped with spicy dried scallop that gives a more savoury taste and texture compared to the usual ebi sushi.

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
