I really like this place! Ate here twice and on both occasions, I had the Sake Ikura Don. It's simple and delicious and the slices of salmon sashimi are nice and fresh. I can understand why some reviews say it's a tad bland... I ate mine with lots of soy sauce, but that's how I always eat my sushi.

My boyfriend had the chicken katsu curry the first time and on our second visit, he ordered the chicken teriyaki set - he loved them both!

We also tried the flamed salmon maki, that was so good. For sushi sets, you can opt for oden instead of miso soup, simply top up an additional $1.50. It was my first time trying oden so I can't say if it tasted authentic but I can say it was very tasty!

I've actually eaten lunch at Ishiki 3 times. The first time, I was excited about discovering a low fuss sushi offer in Harbourfront (compared to the more expensive Sushi Tei). I had a sushi set which was both satisfying and affordable.

The second time I went, I had a sukiyaki hot pot which was quite tasty but the fruit that came with the set (watermelon) was off. I let that go as everyone makes mistakes.

The third time, I had a chicken teriyaki bento and this time the chicken was off.  You could smell that it was not quite right before you even tasted it and when I did the chicken was sour. The staff originally offered me a replacement meal, but given half the menu was unavailable (chicken katsu & egg hotpot, dory bento etc), they ended up replacing my chicken and not even my rice, which had touched the "off" chicken.

Disappointing to say the least, clearly this place doesn't have the right food processes in place to keep track of the freshness of their food.

Another what-to-eat-at-Vivo nights and we found ourselves wanting Jap food but the few we saw were the up-market types. :( Then hubby asked if we should try Ishiki as it looked like a no-nonsense makan place.

We popped in and true enough, the deco is sparse and functional. We ordered:

1) Fish Tempura - deep fried fish pieces but not great, Ajisen makes better ones.

2) Sake Ikura Don - hubby found this slightly blend. He qualified to say that the taste is more refined lah. He also had the impression that the salmon slices at Ichiban Boshi seemed thicker too.

3) Flamed Salmon Maki - this set of sushi were very well made. Tasty and pretty. Their fish eggs are the large orange ones that goes 'pop' in my mouth!!

4) Beef Sukiyaki Veg Hotpot - a tasty pot of goodness!! The beef slices are adequate and the other ingredients are also fresh so it's really a whole pot of goodness!!! Love it!!!

I'll probably return just for the sukiyaki but the other stuff are not so value for money.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
