Located at the fourth level of the shopping Centre, it is mostly food court with a few mini restaurants. One of the restaurants is this Japanese restaurant which is well known for its Shiok Maki. In fact there is 2 versions - first generation and second generation.
I was showed to a counter seat. The restaurant was quickly packed by 12noon. Iced water was not served free of charge. The hot green tea was served free flow, chargeable at $1.50+. If one wanted water, one would be asked to order mineral water. The restaurant served bento sets during the day, before dinner time.
Bento H ($12.90+)
Sushi moriawase, mini Tokyo ramen
The broth of the ramen tasted more like the KopiTiam version of pork rib prawn noodle soup than the usual Ramen's soup base. The ramen egg did not lava type of yolk. The cha Siew was kind of dry. Kind of disappointing. The sushi was not bad except for the tako sushi which I felt was a bit too chewy.
SHIOK!!! Maki ($16.80+)
Heavenly combination of charcoal grilled eel wrapped with lightly roasted salmon.
It looked great with the touched sauce and flying fish roe on top of the maki. Although it tasted rich and buttery with the melt in the mouth salmon, crunchy roe, it wasn't as Shiok as I thought it to be as the eel was quite bony for some parts and giving irritation down the throat.
Overall food was not bad. Service could be improved. Waited awhile for the sushi which was part of the bento set to arrive. Almost finished the maki and ramen before it finally came. Take note that there GST in the bill. Credit cards are accepted here.
