great day out

My friends recommend me to eat sakae sushi as they serve great food with reasonable price and the ambience is basically great. When my friends and I step into the outlet, the manager greeted us warningly. When we rose up our hands to order the food, the staff notices us and went to us immediately. I had experience before when u raised up your hand there is no staff serving you due to they are chatting away. In sakae sushi I have never experienced it before. The foods are served to us quickly. The sushi are fresh and delicious and I enjoy it very much. In conclusion, the food and experience is great.

the big leap

it wasnt too long ago when i promised myself to write sakae sushi off my list of places to dine, but my saturday date thought she wanted to give it a try. on seeing that they've revamped the decor, i thought yeah, let's give it a chance to redeem its place on my list.

service was prompt and we were quickly seated. the service staff was kind enough to give us our privacy for a fair bit of chatter before tending to us again for orders. casually, we asked for the hot green tea, and did the rest of the orders via the digitised touch screen menu.

somehow, we were on the same chapter, and decided to try out some of the SOP sashimi & sushi. all that we picked were colored & red plates and had our fill.

in summary, i'd say that there's been some improvement in the quality of the rice, while the cuts of the fishes erased my past horror. at the end of it all, if the lady is happy... i should be too.

Decent but...

A friend of my fiance was leaving for Jakarta permanently thus we decided to have a "farewell" dinner of sorts before she left. Originally it was planned at Itacho Sushi but due to the crowd, we decided to head to Sakae instead.

When we came, the restaurant was half filled. The staff was friendly and very obliging. We took 2 tables and he suggested putting the other table under reservation while we wait for the 5 others instead of breaking up the 5 people already there.

The food was on the belt were ok. I found it a tad too sweet for some of them. The karage dishes was good as well as the soft shell crabs. A friend who ordered the chawanmushi or whatever you call it said it was one of the better ones she had tried in Singapore. I found the Salmon sashimi not as fresh. Its still good just that it didn't taste perfectly right. The wasabi had this weird taste to it. Tasted plastic-like, like it wasnt natural ingredients.

The main hitch was getting the bill. Using the electronic system, there was no response after 10 min so we had to it manually and signal the manager for the tentative bill. Would have given the place a 9 for service otherwise.

Exceeded Expectation

I didn't get a picture but the Sakae Salad (their house salad) at 8 dollars was one I found value for money and surprisingly tasty.

The garden greens (romaine, radish, red lettuce) was fresh and crisp and went perfectly with the salmon sashimi, avacado, cold jellyfish salad(slightly spicy), wakame, sweet corn, crab mayo and beancurd strips! Oh and who can forget the delicious crispy fried salmon skin bits they scattered on top, kind of like croutons.

Anyhoo, the portion is substantial, probably enough for a light lunch with plenty of yummy ingredients.

I'm dreaming of this salad, I must have it soon!

p.s. it's quite hard to eat using just the chopsticks they provided though...

一步一步往上爬

i thought i swore to myself never to revisit sakae again, after my last visit that left me a mental scar, but i guess over time, with some improvements... scars can heal.

i was hosting my friend from afar, and were quite undecided about where to dine. craving for fish & wasabi, it was a tough call between sakae & the neighbor. but the thought of having to wait for our food helped with our decision in a snap - sakae sushi it was.

we were quickly seated, and our beverage was served real quick. placed our orders via the computer system (apparently not lagging/ spoilt), and like fast food, the food was served in a jiffy. the services rendered contrasted greatly with my previous encounter (no, i'm not prejudiced towards FTs, but the local staff were a lil more attentive - i give them credit for that lil extra).

on the whole, despite this visit being a brief moment to fix the hunger, i think the improvement in services has been the saving grace. i trust that they will keep up with the effort.

cheers!
