Sushi rice has always been the hardest to master for every sushi master and it has been extremely hard to find good ones in Singapore. I didn't have that high an expectation but wow I was blown away when I realise how the rice was sticky and had the right amount of vinegar and the proportion too was well managed. As for the salmon, I guess I don't have to say much since everyone knows how Standing sushi bar does their salmon.

I love going to Standing Sushi Bar on a Saturday because of its 50% off sushi as well sashimi. Being the huge lover of sashimi myself, I literally ordered my favourite cuts which ranges from salmon to scallops. And it was such a steal gievn the quality as the ingredients were super fresh. I might just make this a weekly affair.

This one was a huge disappointment as I still prefer my tamago hot. In addition, it was a little to sweet for my liking and it could afford to be a little softer as well.

I usually for anything with Salmon and aburi together because these two are literally the perfect match. My first bite of this sushi was that it was a little too dry and it tasted a little like the famous sushi roll from Koh grill except that it didn't give me a lasting impression. Also do note that the Burpple 1 for 1 isn't available on sundays

The wagyu beef looked so good on the menu that I knew I just had to try it. Looking at the marbling of those beef slices, I knew I was in for a treat. Being a seasoned foodie, I was more than right when the beef tasted more like a soft piece of sashimi that literally melts in your mouth. The soup base however was a tad salty.

I am not a big fan of fries/chips/wedges because it all taste pretty much the same to me. I reluctantly tried this and I realised that they can be rather delicious when done well. The potato skin was fried till golden brown and you can actually taste the crisp. What finds you there after is soft mushy potato which enhances the entire experience! Not to be missed out!

There was lots of hype about this place over the course of the past few weeks and being a Japanese food lover; I just had to check it out. The first thing that caught my eyes were the prices, they look too unbelievably affordable to be true. I ordered this because I wanted a change from the usual ramen and boy was it the best decision. Kiwami is extremely generous with the portion of prawns and scallops which were well cooked because it usually becomes too dry or overcook when placed in fried rice. The rice too was well complemented by the ikura and egg. Honesty, I can't think of a reason why someone wouldn't give this place a try. You can probably find me coming back here for lunch very frequently!

The first thing that caught my eye was how fresh and chunky the sashimi which I picked out was; I selected the medium bowl which enabled me to select 4 different sashimi ( salmon, tuna, scallop and swordfish). I enjoyed the meal a lot and the grates wasabi made it even better. The only complaint is probably the rice which I thought was too sticky and wet. Otherwise, I couldn't have asked for a better lunch choice!

It's normal to have second thoughts on having ramen noodles with the broth after all that's the winning combination after all. But this one defied all odds by proving that dry noodles with the right texture and seasoning can too be a winner. If you like more taste in your noodles, feel free to add more chilli oil and vinegar. The fried chicken was totally a bomb and I can't wait to come back for more since its super worth it with 1 for 1.

I was recommended this place for a friend who has nothing but raves about the food here and it's not hard to see why. The kani was so well cooked and it tastes really good with the grates wasabi and plum slices and the ikura brought it home with the finishing touches. I am looking forward to coming back more often for other dons

It might sound pompous but I have to really say I am an expert at chirashi don given how frequently I have it. I felt that the raw fish were not as fresh and the rice was a little too hard and sour. While it was extremely worthwhile with Burrple Beyond, it's hard to see myself coming back here.

The first word I muttered upon digging into a piece of scallop was "OMGGG wow!!". I had been looking for a place where I could customise my own liking of sashimi instead of just any other assorted plate. The sashimi here is freshly prepared and each piece glides down your throat like a piece of marble. I wondered why it even took me so long to come here so it's my duty to promote this gem of a place to others. Just make the trip down; you won't regret it I promise!
