The Sushi Bar

With the blogosphere raving about the famed salmon aburi, the queue simply didn't deter us from visiting The Sushi Bar. We shared a long table with another four other people and we heard their conversations throughout the entire meal and vice versa. Which isn't a bad thing actually, you get to listen to the stories of other people's lives without actually having to know them- similar to the art of people watching. 

We waited for half an hour on a Friday night which was actually pretty quick considering that the queue was long when we went. 

We had the Chawanmushi ($2.80) which was pretty average- smooth with one piece of mushroom and crabstick.

I had mixed thoughts about the Wafu Spaghetti ($10.90). I found it pretty addictive but I think half the portion was enough before it starts to turn a little gelat.

The Scallop Mentaiyaki ($13.90) was so delicately sliced- each thin piece of scallop is an envelop of freshness and subtle sweetness.

The Ebi Fry Salmon Aburi Roll ($16.90) was what we came here for and I was glad it didn't disappoint. The salmon pieces were torched and had a melt-in-the-mouth consistency. Coupled with the crispy prawn fritter in the sushi, this is something that you have to order.

The food here is definitely value-for-money. They don't have enough servers and the wait for your food can be quite long.
