GIVEAWAY | Sakae Sushi Presents New and Improved Menu, Now Available At All Outlets

This giveaway is now CLOSED!

The pioneer of the kaiten-zushi (conveyor-belt) system of serving sushi which debuted in our country back in 1997, homegrown Japanese restaurant chain- Sakae Sushi has certainly come a long way since. Presently the largest sushi chain in Singapore with 40 outlets all over the island, the brand is definitely a household name in our local dining scene. I personally grew up identifying Sakae Sushi as the place for sushi and especially given their penchant for pocket-friendly prices, it was simply a huge draw factor for us poor students back in the day, who really wanted to eat Japanese cuisine.

Unfortunately, in a bid to try out all the new sushi restaurants that have been popping up everywhere in recent years, I have not stepped into Sakae Sushi for quite sometime now. So when I received a media invite informing me that Sakae Sushi had recently revamped its menu with more than 50 new dishes, it was the perfect excuse to make a trip down and find out how the Sakae Sushi has kept up with the times and if standards have remained competitive.

We began with three new Appetizer additions to their menu.

The Ika Okura $6.29 made up of chopped lightly seasoned lady fingers and squid, was a picture of green. I could not get past the slimy and sticky consistency of the dish contributed by the squid and was extremely hesitant to take a bite. But after it went one round around the table, and everyone took their share, some even went for seconds, I decided it could not be that bad. And frankly it was not.. It just tasted really healthy and fresh.

The Asari Miso $6.29 was much better received. Clams marinated with thick Miso paste, this was another cold dish and was finished in seconds.

blogDSC_3418-001

My favorite of the lot was this Honey Sakura Ebi $6.29, essentially sweet crunchy shrimps that were great to snack on. I liked how they complimented the Sakura Ebi with white shredded radish for a nice contrast of textures, ideal for munching as we waited for the next few dishes to come out.

Moving onto the Sashimi Moriawase & Sushi Platters..

The Kohada (Gizzard Shad) $4.29 was initially served to us with a disclaimer because of the strong flavor it is usually associated with. Surprisingly, everyone enjoyed it with a pinch of ginger and a slice of cucumber which helped balance out some of that intensity.

Dont you think the shimmery texture of the skin makes the fish even more appetizing?

blogDSC_3423-001

While the Japanese generally enjoy varieties of tuna such as Bluefin and Yellowfin, the Katsuo (Skipjack Tuna) $6.29, as I learnt that day, is also no exception. Somewhat meatier and thicker in nature with a deep-red color, the Skipjack was sweet and chewy albeit a little fishy. Certainly not for everyone.

Get the Nama Kaki $8.29 if you love your raw oysters! Flown in direct from Hiroshima, these were peppered with a homemade chilli dressing for some added punch and to wash down the lingering aftertaste.

blogDSC_3434-001

I finally saw some light when the Mentai Kamo Sushi $7.99 platter came out. Because if you recall, I do not eat sashimi, so I definitely looking forward to the cooked items making their entrance. And all that waiting was not in vain! I absolutely enjoyed the smoked duck with a generous piping of half grilled codfish roe sauce topping which had a creamy consistency and tasted both sweet and spicy. Must try!

blogDSC_3438-001

Another favorite was the Aburi Nama Hotate Sushi $7.99 which featured seared scallops, topped with salmon roe. For starters, I adore anything Aburi (torched). Purists, please do not flame me (hur hur) but I really do love a smokey touch on my food. These scallops too were huge, fresh and naturally sweet, it was too hard not to enjoy.

blogDSC_3445-001

Remember the Skipjack Tuna sashimi a few dishes before? Well this Katsuo Aburi Sushi $4.29 is the seared version of it and yes it has my approval stamp on it. But not just because it has been seared, but also because it was good. You will not regret it if you order this.

blogDSC_3448-001

Threading into the slightly unknown, Ooba Tempura $4.29 gives your usual Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura a run for their money. Made of lightly battered white fish wrapped with ooba leaf before deep frying, this reminded me a little of the battered fish in Fish N Chips with a subtle bitter flavor because of the ooba. An interesting taste overall, I would order it again just for novelty sake.

blogDSC_3451-001

Ending off with a few main courses of Ramen

Both the Seafood $15.99 and Wagyu $16.99 ramen came with the same spicy kimchi soup that had a little kick and sourish tinge which whetted the appetite and had us wanting more.

I personally thought that the ingredients in the Seafood version was sufficiently generous, with the usual prawns, oysters and squid, while the noodles itself were springy, thin and cooked just the way I like my ramen. Approved!

blogDSC_3462-001

The Wagyu on the other hand, featured succulent and tender beef slices that were honestly quite delectable. My only complaint was that there were too few slices and I really wanted more!!

Wagyu beef FTW!!

blogDSC_3465-001

If you prefer chicken based soups, then the Chicken $14.99 will undoubtedly be a great choice. The consistency was a little milky and while not as thick or rich as the Kimchi one, it was still sufficiently robust and tasty. The juicy pieces of chicken had to be the highlight of this one though! Dressed with Teriyaki sauce, these fillets certainly brought in great flavor to the mix.

bloggDSC_3469-001

I do not usually order dessert at sushi chains but these two changed my mind and I am certain that they will change yours too!

Absolutely cannot pick between the Mango or Pear Pudding, both $3.59 because they were delightfully refreshing in their own rights. The latter actually tasted like eating the actual Asian Pear with the same grainy texture, only frozen so extra ooomph, while the former was made from a mix of apple mango puree- smooth, delectable and lip-smacking good! Must try!
