So Koh Grill & Sushi Bar's shiok maki is not new to most people as it went viral a few years back. Despite being around for a number of years, the hype for their shiok maki seems to continue as there is always a long queue for dining in.

Shiok Maki ($16.80)

I enjoyed the different layers of the maki, from the seared salmon to the smoky soft grilled eel within the rice, and eventually the sauce that was generously drenched on the maki. The sauce was cheesy and buttery. The generous portion of tobiko topped on it gave it an additional crunch and salty "ocean" taste lol.

Shiok Maki Gen 2 ($16.80)

The main difference in the Gen 2 maki is probably the crispy crunchy tempura prawn that replaced the grilled eel. With the crispy tempura prawn, there is an additional crunch within the maki beyond the otherwise soft mushy texture. The sauce was also slightly different as there was an additional mango flavour to it. It might sound weird but I actually prefer this sauce as it felt less heavy (or for Singaporeans out there - less jelat).

I can't decide which I like best and I will probably continue to order both everytime I visit this restaurant!
