Growing up, my first introduction to the world of Japanese cuisine was at the first Genki Sushi outlet at FORUM The Shopping Mall. It was quite an experience, because the food comes (and goes) on a conveyor belt right next to your table. Don’t even get me started on the tabletop hot water dispenser.
Genki Sushi might have been one of the first sushi restaurants to bring the conveyor belt concept to Singapore, but it has since been adopted by many other sushi restaurants to the point where it has almost become a sushi-specific concept.
Now, this new sushi restaurant in Yishun Town Square combines 2 of the sushi dining concepts we’ve seen before, into 1 sushi restaurant.
Introducing One Sushi.
Home-grown Sushi Restaurant
Their two-tiered conveyor belt features a regular sushi conveyor belt on the bottom, while the top tier is a “track” for “sushi cars” to deliver the sushi that you order à la carte via the iPad.
You know the way your food comes to you at Genki Sushi? In the trains? One Sushi uses “cars” instead. It’s quite fun to see your food zoom towards you.
That’s not all, the sushi conveyor belt allows diners to choose from 50 different yellow-plated sushi at just $1.50 per plate! (That’s Sushi Express’ price OMG)
If you love Ikura (salmon roe), One Sushi’s Ikura Gunkan is permanently available at $1. Another value-for-money item on the menu is the Uni Sushi at just $1.50. $1.50 for Uni (Sea Urchin) is unheard of.
Planning to order from their à la carte menu? Go for the Hamachi Kama ($13.80). One Sushi uses fresh Hamachi Kama from Japan. Hamachi Kama is the collar of Yellowtail fish. Each fish has 2 and it is usually the most fatty part of the fish.
Don’t like fish? (Why are you at a SUSHI restaurant?) Try the Hotate Mentai ($4.80) which sees scallops served in-shell, topped with a generous dollop of mentaiko that’s been blowtorched for that charred savoury finish.
One Sushi looks promising for a new and upcoming sushi restaurant. For the aunties and mothers out there, the green tea and wet tissue are free of charge. Just saying.
From now till 17 June 2018, they are having a special opening promotion where all yellow plate sushi go for $0.88++ each!
Lastly, every month, they will select and feature 1 sushi in the $1 category so be sure to check with the staff!
So….sushi for dinner anyone?
