This can’t go wrong - thicc, slimy slices of salmon laced over Japanese rice and glossed with mentaiko, seared and topped with generous portions of roe. We love this so, so much. It doesn’t come cheap but money is well paid for the fresh produce. Fishy-ness is a bane!

Slurrppps. It’s just pure seafood-y goodness on a plate. Urchin was incredibly smooth - the kind that glides down your throat! The roe were incredibly plump and literally ‘bust’ with flavour in your mouth. Ratio of rice-to-filling was balanced. Overly generous portion of rice is a no-no for sushis. I also appreciate how the seaweed was pretty good quality; ie. doesn’t feel ’stretchy’ or rubbery despite some time left on the table before we took the first bite! Served alongside palate-cleansing ginger and freshly grated wasabi!

Grilled lobster sizzled with mentaiko, cheese and a luscious bed of roe. Roe-lly satisfying seafood dinner, I must say

Is this food or is this dessert? The idea of pumpkin with roasted rice just presents itself as pumpkin rice to me…
The adventurous husband decided to go for the most ‘unique’ option on the menu and here we are, embracing ourselves with a queer, non-typical looking (and tasting) ice cream. Verdict? It was definitely a pleasant surprise, with smooth pumpkin puree atop pumpkin ice cream which was rather earthy in taste. The crispy rice accentuates the earthiness and added a layer of crunch. As for the mint leaf? Well, I think we could do without it.

Have seen many reviews re the food here though a friend's ig and thought to try it out! A long standing takeaway kiosk at Ion and now, a couple other shopping malls too, Teppei serves up quick, easy Chirashi don for busy peeps looking for a quick, yet decent Chirashi meal. Service and food here is as simple as it gets - without frills, and you eat with wooden disposable chopsticks, served in disposable paper bowls even when you opt for dine in. Aside from the unaesthetic and environmentally unfriendly wooden chopsticks, the experience here was decently simple. For the higher-than-usual food-kiosk food price points here and fairly basic eat-and-go concept, I'm not sure if this is some place I would revisit without claiming vouchers or utilizing promo codes...

The husband was quickly won over by the free drinks served by the restaurant (yes you're eligible for the welcome drink on the house even if you're using burpple!). It was some fizzy lychee drink infused with some alcohol. Plain water is free too! woohoo

We had the Supreme unagi roll and the Salmon mentai roll for the burpple 1-1 deal. Additionally, we ordered the Tank Tamago mentai($6.80) and Hamachi Nigiri ($9.80).

We loved how the Hamachi Nigiri was presented in the same way as high quality restaurants do - huge slice of fish over a small dollop of rice. The ponzu jelly adds a nice texture to the sushi roll!

Tank Tamago mentai was sweet and 'juicy', not exceptionally dry nor tasteless. The combination of tamago and mentai tasted as good as expected - i guess there's not plenty of room for error when it comes to something so basic and in a way, fail-proof too?

Supreme Unagi roll and Salmon mentai were well executed, with generous portions of fishes within the sushil rolls. The key to awesome sushi is always the freshness of the ingredients and over here, it's definitely fresh! The husband was so satisfied with the quality of food (and the free welcome drinks) that he would love to revisit for their lunch bowls.

Woof! Real mentaiko goes into the mix here - with oozy eggs and aldente pasta. Just really simple, meat-less ingredients that sits in nicely with one another. Again, only fresh and authentic ingredients here (fresh mentaiko! Not some gooey paste)! I couldnt decide if this, or the mushroom truffle pizza tasted better. And of course i was glad that I got to enjoy both, thanks to burpple beyond 1-1 deal!
Note: Burpple Beyond is not eligible for use on pasta costing >$21.

Not-your-ordinary prawn maki! Truth be told, we ordered this as we had thought the same price brings us more pieces of sushi rolls (and hence feeling of satiation) as compared to the other luxe-r options. We weren't expecting much out of this but this again, blew us away! At $6.80++ for 4 rolls, you'd probably expect subpar or at most, the standard tempura prawn rolled in sushi rice, then dressed in avocado. But hey, no! within the sushi roll was this unknown creamy paste that added on a layer of texture to the sushi bites. At this point of review I still haven't quite figured what's this creamy goodness but I guess that's not quite important, except to remember that this is something I should probably go for again in my next visit. Senryo definitely has a knack in throwing lil' surprises in the most ordinary dish(es).

This wasnt one of the restaurant's signature but it's a frequent feature in most reviews that I had read. We decided to give this a go and was glad we did! Medium-cooked, tender much, with flavoursome glaze that completed the beef cuts well. It would be great to order a bowl of rice to soak up the sauce (& teeny sesame seeds too!). The star of this dish would be the generous portion of foie gras that was served atop the beef cuts. I'm not a fan of foie gras and in fact, dislike it a lot. However, the doneness (creamy inside!) was bearable and there wasnt too much of gaminess! This came with two huge slices of foie gras and was priced only at $28.00++!

Highly recommended by the staff, we took it on and yes, no regrets! Priced at $28.00++, this was money worth considering every single-part of the fish could be eaten because it's triple-fried! Imagine the amount of time and effort that goes into the preparation of this! Served with a side of dipping salt (very salty!) that the fiance appreciates a lot more than I did. I love how there's no food-wastage (or money wastage) here. Great for those who hasnt eaten fish heads/tails ever and would like to have a taste of it! hahaha. This is just like a seabass tempura, without added calories from tempura coating (???). Unfortunately this is only available on the seasonal menu - subject to the availability of the fishes!

I saw mixed reviews of Senryo's mentai tamago eggs - some commented that 'it's just egg', and as how one would expect it to be. I beg to differ. We ordered a piece each and were glad we didnt have to scrimp on our bites to save a bit more of the delish tamago for the other. The egg was sort of creamy on the inside and I love how it's slightly fluffy and not overly cooked. The mentaiko cause atop complemented the tamago so well - sharp, strong taste that cuts into the egginess. It's a pretty eggcellent combination! And of course, nothing less of real, fresh, 100% mentaiko here.

Order the Senryo sushi and if you've excess budget, you may consider this too! According to the fiance, this was less mind-blowing as compared to the Senryo sushi. Just fresh uni and snow crab as you would expect, not so much of a 'flavour' or 'texture' burst like the Senryo sushi.

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
