What started out as a small hole-in-the-wall 30-seater eatery, The Sushi Bar has progressed tremendously and opened another branch outlet in the same shopping centre. Tucked in the labyrinth of clothing shops of Far East Plaza, unknowing shoppers would only know of its existence from the long queue line. Set up in 2013, this sushi bar definitely does not lack popularity or diners in the peak hours. Even with 2 outlets in operation, do be prepared to queue for almost an hour. But once you dig in, it will be worth the wait. Sashimi: Sake and Hotate sashimi are staple orders whenever I’m having a Japanese meal. The Sushi Bar serves their salmon in uniformly thick slices. A little too thick for my own preference as I find it hard to enjoy the taste of each individual slices.
Salmon Aburi Roll: One of their signature dishes, this is crave-worthy and top-notch. The relationship between seared salmon and mentaiko sauce is both mystical and complementary.
I believe in quality food, especially Japanese cuisine as careful preparation is required to maintain flavour and freshness. But I also believe that we should pay for food that is value-for money. The Sushi Bar covers both the aspects of quality and value, and hence, is now my usual go-to Japanese eatery in town.
