Kaishin Sushi – Lunch

Ever since my various trips to Japan I’ve grown to be pickier about Japanese food. Most restaurants in Singapore can’t satisfy me but I’m glad I’ve found one which is good enough!

This restaurant is not very popular and the selfish part of me hopes it remains this way. Most of the patrons I guess are Japanese since their social media are mostly written in their language. When I called up for reservations, the person on the line spoke in Japanese too. This sort of gave me confidence about the authenticity and the good impression started then.

The restaurant is small with just a sushi counter and a separate table at a corner, similar to typical sushi restaurants in Japan (which can be even smaller).

For lunch, they offer 3 different sets starting from $40.00++ for the SAKURA course. I went with the FUJI course (11pc sushi) which cost $60.00++. There’s also a all tuna set for tuna lovers going at $80.00++.

Kurosoi (Black Rock Fish)

First time seeing this seasonal fish.

Akami Maguro (Bluefin tuna)

This bluefin tuna is probably the best akami maguro I’ve tried! In fact, this piece is better than some inferior toro I’ve had elsewhere. Judging by how good the tuna is, perhaps the tuna special course may be a good idea next time.

Shima Aji (Striped Jack)

Ika (Squid)

With seasalt and lime

Botan Ebi (Sweet Shrimp)

Kimmedai (Golden Snapper)

Torigai (Japanese cockle)

Uni (Sea Urchin)

So fresh and creamy.

Sawara (Spanish Mackerel)

Probably my first time having this too. With a bit of yuzu.

Toro (Fatty tuna)

Anago (Sea eel)

Was happy to see warabi mochi!

I loved the variety, freshness and quality of the sushi here. Seeing unfamiliar fish always keeps me interested. I suppose the variety is seasonal and should change every now and then, up to the chef as all omakase restaurants do. For $60.00++ I think the value is unbeatable and I loved every part of my meal.
