Personally, Itacho Sushi is one of my more preferred options when it comes to chain Japanese restaurants that serve sushi within shopping centres. While we were just walking around Bugis Junction, we walked past an Itacho Sushi outlet and since I had not really visited them in a while, why not make a visit now?
The Crab Meat Salad ($4.80) may be disappointing to some by substituting Surimi for Crab meat, however the cucumbers were refreshing and the fish roe would just burst with every bite. The light salad sauce also does not overpower the various flavours within the dish, and with a price tag of below $5, you can’t really expect anything more than this with its freshness.
The Grilled Salmon with Spicy Miso ($8.00) was nicely grilled with a crispy skin but retained its succulent texture on the inside. The fish was lightly marinated with Miso which gives it some flavour, but not so much that it would cover off the signature taste of salmon. Japanese-style chili powder is sprinkled on top, giving the fish a moderately spicy sensation.
Illustrations on the menu showed a full cup of rice with Eel Mini Rice ($4.00) presented over the rice, but when it came to the table, it was more than just minuscule. With only a pinch of rice served, this definitely looks smaller than any kids meal. However, it is definitely a good size for those who just wants have a try of different items as it is barely filling. The Unagi was well marinated with a sauce that really brought out its flavour, though some pieces were a tad scaly.
