Akashi Sushi currently has 3 branches – Tanglin, Paragon and the latest addition at Vivocity. Queues can get pretty long during dinner time, so I would recommend going early, or make a reservation beforehand!
iPads used as menus (only at Vivo)! I feel that although the younger generations will use this technology with ease, older people may encounter some trouble using them.
Salmon Sashimi (4 portions pictured here -$3.60/portion) – The salmon sashimi is relatively fresh but since it’s so cheap, I don’t think I have any major problem with it!
Surf Clam Sushi; Inari Sushi; Lobster Salad Sushi; Aburi Hotate Sushi – The sushis come with a minimum of two pieces, which means that you’ll have to mentally double the price you see on the iPad menu.
Gyoza – I thought these were disappointing. They tasted more like boiled wanton than crispy pan-fried gyozas.
Salmon Fish Head Miso Soup – This was pleasant in terms of taste and the ingredients were plentiful.
Prawn Ramen ($6) – This was really delicious! Even though it has no resemblance to any kind of ramen, the noodles were smooth and springy! I loved the accompanying sauce and those freshly-peeled prawns. As the portion is rather small, it would be good to have it with some sushis to complete a meal!
Chicken Yakitori with Poached Egg – This dish is my absolute favourite and it’s a pity that not all Japanese restaurants serve this! As you can see, the egg is to-die-for. I would say, gently poke the egg, scoop the liquid yolk onto the stick of chicken paste and you’re in chicken/egg heaven!
Sushi & Soba Set ($16) – Their set meals are reasonably-priced and they have a list of bento sets to choose from as well.
Akashi Sushi actually reminds me of Itacho Sushi, with a plethora of sushi creations and side dishes to choose from, at relatively cheap prices. If you want cheap, decent and fuss-free Japanese food, this will be the place to go to! If I were to be back, it’s purely just for their Chicken Yakitori with Poached Egg cos it’s just oh-so-good.
