Note: The Sushiro that’s well known for it’s affordable Barachirashi don is now renamed as Omote.
If you don’t mind having a good sushi in a not so optimal ambience, Sushiro is the place for you. Strangely, Sushiro has two eating places on the same floor within Thomson Plaza — one located within the cluster of small eateries (pictured below), and one located in a proper shop about 30 meters away. It was my first time there and I saw the smaller one first so I dined there.
You’ll see what looks like a queue during dinner, but actually it’s because they have this self serving kiosk which is rather wonky and you only get to view the menu when you’re at the kiosk. Lots of time wasted here.
The self service kiosk only accepts cash. Didn’t have a chance to ask the staff if payment can be done by card. Also, the chef (left corner of the picture) looks pretty legit.
Salmon $3.20, Salmon Belly $4.80, Salmon Belly Mentai $6.20.
Rather rare to see nigiri so beautifully done in Singapore. The fresh salmon slices were pressed on top the rice with perfect, consistent pressure.
Bara Chirashi, $12.80.
The secret to a good barachirashi is the seasoning and rice. Sushiro’s seasoning was fantastic. It was flavourful yet not too overpowering, so you could still taste the freshness of fish bites. The ikura was plump and firm too. The rice however, was a little disappointing. I’m not sure what rice they used, but it doesn’t seem like Japanese rice, and it was a little too moist.
Gyu Yakiniku Set Meal, $19.80.
Look at the soft runny egg! And while you’re at that, take a moment to appreciate the thickness of the salmon sashimi as well. The gyu yakiniku was well cooked and flavoured. Soft, chewy beef slices with the right amount of onions. No complains about this dish sans the rice.
While Sushiro is a great place to get good quality sushi at affordable prices, Thomson Plaza is a little out of the way and there’s nothing else to do in the mall. So unless I’m around the vicinity to begin with, I won’t travel specially to here just for the food.
