My lunch partner and I were looking for a place to eat sushi at Orchard recently and I remembered this restaurant at the basement of Robinson’s Heeren Building. We went to take a look and sat down to lunch. We had a variety of sushi, sushi rolls and garlic fried rice. Here’s the verdict: Sushi: - Hotate Mayo Tobiko Gunkan: $3.60 – Diced scallops mixed with ebi roe and mayonnaise and placed on sushi rice wrapped with seaweed. Very nice! - Hamachi Sushi: $4 – Fish is firm and fresh. - Tai Sushi: $4 – Sea Bream sushi. Fish is fresh and firm. Aburi Sushi: - Aburi Hotategai: $4.40 – Scallop n sushi rice and flame broiled. Yummy! - Aburi Shake: $3 – Salmon on sushi rice and flame broiled and topped with Japanese seasoning. Good. Roll - Ebi Tempura Maki with Pitan: $5.80 – The tempura prawn was rolled up in a rice roll, coated with ebi roll and topped with chopped century egg. This is a unique dish and highly recommended! - Hotate Mayo Tobiko Maki: $3.80 – Fresh scallops diced and rolled up in a rice roll and topped with white sesame seeds. Good. - Shake Kawa Maki: $3.80 - Negitoro rolled in a rice roll and rolled in chopped seaweed and sesame coating. The exterior of the maki was crunchy ad nice. Garlic fried rice: $5 – You only get a hint of garlic in the fried rice and the rice is well fried with egg. The quality of sushi here is good and I will definitely be back again for more sushi! For lunch, they also have lunch sets, so a good alternative to your usual lunch haunts at Orchard road. Recommended!
