unexpected dishes from new menu

Visit: http://www.dairycream.blogspot.sg/2013/06/sakae-sushi-new-menu-vouchers-giveaway.html for full post and pic I tend to jump straight to the sushi or sashimi when I visit Sakae. But this time round, I realised that the appetisers were pretty tasty too, and in fact better than few of its sashimi items.  For instance, the Asari Miso ($6.29) were tiny springy clams seasoned in miso paste that dominated the flavour.  Perhaps I was the only one at the table who enjoyed the stickiness of the Ika Okura ($6.29)--ladyfingers mixed with squid. It was a llight dish without need for extra seasoning. The Honey Sakura Ebi ($6.29) is simply a pot of sweet crunchy prawns that are so good for snacking that I doubt nobody will dislike unless he/she is allergic to crustaceans Marinated with soy and vinegar, the silvery sashimi ($4.29/3pcs) already has a mild sourish and salty taste, so I suggest you to enjoy the original flavour without soy sauce. Oysters fans may be delighted to know that there are mouthwatering raw oysters from Hiroshima here at $8.29(4pcs). I am not a fan of oysters but those who did found them fresh and delicious I always thought that Sakae Sushi only served sushi but now it has a wider variety menu with some dishes like the Kohada sashimi and Smoked Duck Sushi that caught me by surprise…….

Oyster Katsu don

Average food, better options elsewhere.

I've always wondered why Sakae Sushi manages to attract such long queues everytime I pass by an outlet - especially the one at Marina Square. Previously, I had the salmon sashimi and potato salad bento set. From my impression there's nothing really outstanding about the food there. Yet we didn't know what to eat at Marina Square so we decided on some Japanese food. 

After spending time just to queue up and waiting for our food, we were served food that didn't meet our expectations. Portions wise, they were in fact relatively mediocre, especially so if you compare the food to Sakae's other local competitors like Nihon Mura. The salmon don, though fresh, had only 6-7 slices of sashimi in it. In contrast at Nihon Mura, there's a whole bowl of sashimi at the same price, without compromising on quality!

I ordered the Oyster Katsu Don, which they said was new on the menu. Overall, this wasn't too bad, apart from the insides of the oysters being a little too watery - thus making the rice even more wet (there's already sauce on it!)

There was nothing memorable about the service standards there. As I've said, I still fail to understand why there's always the never-ending queue outside Sakae Sushi outlets. There're better Japanese cuisine options out there.

better sushi options nearby

I found this a very generic sushi experience. Nothing special here, also nothing particularly bad. I didn't really like the submerged seating or the electronic ordering system which seems a tad too mechanised and lacking the human touch. For the food I tried salmon nigiri, salmon sashimi, chicken yakatori, and some other assorted sushi dishes. there are superior options available nearby in Parco Millenia Walk.

Suk-Key Sushi

My visit there in early January, my first visit in about a year of patronising Sakae's buffet.

Service was appalling! The male philipino restaurant supervisor took us to our seats and left us there by ourselves. The restaurant was only filled with 3 tables, including mine at that point of time. After waiting for approximately 7 minutes, I could not take it anymore and gestured for his attention. Amazingly, I had to raise my hand up for more than 30 seconds before he came by. As I was having the buffet, I placed my orders via the PC and only asked of 2 glasses of ice water from him.

After 10 minutes or so, he served my orders from the PC and left. I waited for another 5 minutes and still no water.....The rest of the service staff looked like they were paid $1/hr to work there, having no reason to smile or speak graciously. Orders although via PC, as usual, came with some missing orders. This has been an issue with most Sakae outlets but bearable.

Food wise, gyoza, one of the better food choices in the buffet menu, has been left OUT of the buffet and is now only available ala carte. Potato Croquette has improved, with much more stuffings this time round but not as crispy as it used to be. Sushi wise, rice was dry and clustered. Seaweed was dry as well so much so that while eating a nigiri, the rice came out in a lump, separated from the seaweed.

The only thing I enjoyed was the table. With a Japanese styled short table, you can either sit cross-legged or extend your legs out to the space below the table. Probably the only tough time you will ever experience will be getting up from an over exerted stomach.
