Fresh affordable sushi and sashimi

In the third quarter of 2013, photos of this certain “shiok maki” dish kept appearing on the social media. This Jap food lover has got to investigate this phenomenon. Not only was I surprised to find Koh’s Grill and Sushi Bar at Wisma Atria, but at the top level with Food Republic. And I was greeted by a sight of a long queue along the narrow corridors of the food court. On a Saturday evening at 7pm, you would most probably queue for at most an hour.

Saturday Lunch

Buyers beware. 

I visited this place with my parents for lunch on a Saturday. Ordered two bento sets, one was a saba with salmon sashimi, the other was teriyaki chicken and a grilled saba. Also ordered a tempura moriawase and a salmon avocado maki roll. 

When the bentos came they looked nothing like that on the menu picture. The slices of salmon sashimi measured 3cm in length and 1cm in thickness, looking so miserable in the bento box. The saba fish was the kind that was preserved and left a nauseating tingling sensation in the mouth. My teriyaki chicken was basically a grilled fillet of chicken with char-flavoured black sauce, nothing close to a proper teriyaki flavour. 

When the salmon avocado maki came I thought it would be a redeeming grace but the sushi rice was so poorly done, in one bite you would have mushy rice and bits of hard rice. It's like they overcooked a batch then tried to salvage it by undercooking another batch and then mixed them together. 

Long story short, don't come here expecting proper Japanese food. It's Singaporean-Japanese at best.

Cost $55 for what I would consider $30 food.

Had to go next door to toastbox to wash away the nausea with a strong cup of coffee.

Shiok to the MAX!

Located in the food court of Wisma Atria on level 4 is this unique Koh Grill & Sushi bar. Famed for it's "Shiok Maki" and reasonably priced sushi is the main reason why there's always a long queue. They do take reservations though, which is the solution to skip the queue, so plan ahead!

1. Shiok Maki $16.80+
I love the little eggs on the maki and they are generous with the eggs. The sauce isn't just drizzled over the maki, it drowns the maki in a sweet and thick sauce, which helps the eggs stick onto the salmon. The slightly burnt salmon adds a slight "burnt" taste to the maki. Personally, I enjoy a charcoal-rich diet so this is the right taste for me. For some, it may seem strange

2. Shiok Maki Gen 2 $16.80+
The main difference between Gen 2 and the original Shiok Maki is the prawn. Both sushi are wrapped in slightly char grilled salmon. The eel is slightly sweeter and hence, it is usually the more popular choice.

3. Ebi Tempura $10
You get 4 big prawns in a thick tempura batter, served with the tempura sauce. The prawns were crispy, even after turning cold, they were still just as crispy. I enjoyed the tempuras.

4. Enoki Buta Maki $3+
The sauce on this is what makes it so awesome. Literally a sugar overdose sauce is drizzled over the enoki which had been barbecued. This is also one of their popular choices, which has been highly recommended by Koh. Sadly however, I find it pretty normal. Yes it's good, but it's not fantastic 

5. Yaki Udon $10+
I loved this yaki udon, a lot of egg and chicken. It tasted just like the yaki udon I ate in Japan. The sauce that the udon was cooked with was slightly sour which is compensated by the egg, which is slightly sweet. The udon was chewy and reasonably soft to enjoy.

6. Seafood Chaahan (Fried Rice) $10+
The "wok-hei" in this dish was overwhelming. I could smell this dish, before the waitress even served it to us. There were 5 big fresh prawns served in this dish, and the fried rice tasted heavily of garlic. So beware if you are planning to meet your date after this meal.

7. Salmon Sashimi $8+
You get 5 thick slices of salmon sashimi. It was fresh and it melted in my mouth! Mouth-watering goodness!

Koh Grill & Sushi bar doesn't charge the 10% Service charge, even though there is actually really good service. But they do charge 7% GST on top of their prices listed in the menu.

I really liked the Shiok Maki, which I will definitely be back for more!
