my brother has a performance this evening = the grand finale of the 9th south east asian chinese poets symposium at china cultural centre queen street.
had good seats reserved but we needed to be early for the performance at 6.30pm so if we were to have a bite it should be nearby.
my RI bro CM & i arranged to have early dinner at standing sushi bar which is a few steps away at 5pm-ish. I parked at hotel royal which charged per entry from 5pm..all quite perfect.
my sis, her daughter & sil & their 2 yr old toddler happened to be around bugis during this time, and belatedly they decided to watch the poetry recital concert performance, so i asked them to join us for dinner. ^^
my sis ordered the same chirashi don.
for me, this chirashi don was ok not that great… and S$30 is too pricey for this standard. CM commented that the crabstick lowered the image of the dish.
the sashimi were thick cut & more like chikuwatei style. they were fresh & good sashimi but there was no premium cuts like toro, botanebi or akaebi, or even amaebi, just a cooked prawn, no uni etc.
they have promotion S$19,90 for this same chirashi don on sunday. i think that would be a more reasonable price.
my niece & her husband are buddhist & vegetaran.
they ordered the vegetarian don, a mango maki & another maki.
the vegetarian should be ok..the mango maki looked fine too.
overall, just an average place with so many sushi & sashimi places including the japan food town stalls around.
i don’t mind this but wouldn’t specially come here. la…
