There was once on a Saturday night that I wanted to try Megumi, but was shocked at the horribly long waiting list. I gave up, but returned on a weekday, where there was no queue. I really wondered what was all the hype about.
4 types of sashimi – $28++
The trick is to request for the type of fish you want, else they’d just give you the cheapest 4! Here there’s salmon belly, tuna, swordfish and yellow tail.
For $28, which averages out to be $7 for 3 slices, it isn’t exactly very cheap. The sashimi was quite fresh, but “quite” only. The sashimi served at Sakuraya, Chikuwa Tei or The Line was better!
Chawanmushi – $4++
This cup was rather unimpressive. Do not order this.
Pork Katsu Curry Rice – $9.80++
The pork katsu was not bad. I’ve eaten pretty bad ones before, namely food court renditions and this one was safely out of that category. However, the curry wasn’t any special, but not awful though. Perhaps I might have more luck at Go Go Curry.
Unagi Don – $10.80++
This unagi looks so small in comparison to the one from Chikuwa Tei! This was probably only half the eel. Again, this wasn’t bad but there’s nothing special to it.
Spider Maki – $12.00++
The spider maki tasted almost like the spider maki from Sushi Tei, which isn’t a bad thing because I like the spider maki from Sushi Tei, but I’m just saying this wasn’t special enough to make an impression.
Overall: You probably can get the same standard from Sushi Tei. Unless you live nearby and Sushi Tei is further, it isn’t work paying a special visit to Siglap just for restaurant. Then again, I may have ordered the wrong dishes.
