Where we eating tonight?

Remember that diner down the street we pass by everyday…

Someone LOVES sushi!

No, I’m not talking about me but I do love some sushi more than others; in general I like it a lot. But someone, who shall remain nameless, LOVES her some sushi!

*cough*Nadia*cough*

Every so often we pass by this restaurant whose signage says Ryo Sushi 24 Hour Diner and I always say to myself, “That sure would be interesting to go there at 3 in the morning.” Suffice to say, last I heard, they aren’t a 24 hour open sushi spot, but I can dream. One of these days we’ll make a reservation.

The Day Has Come

The day came for our dinner. Thankfully we picked up their call back the day before to confirm our reservation. I can only imagine if we had missed the call and showed up to find out that our seats were given away.

Under the Orchid Hotel in Tanjong Pagar is this small street facing restaurant that seats under maybe 20 people. The decor is simple and clean highlighting the food that is being prepared. If you’re lucky enough to be at the counter, you’ll be able to work up your appetite to the behind the counter magic prior to being served your omakase.

Omakase Deals

  • $18 10 Course (limited lunch special)
  • $38 15 Course
  • $68 18 Course with Tuna
  • $98 18 Course with Sea Urchin

You know we had to go all out for the Sea Urchin Omakase! We figured that we wouldn’t be coming back here anytime soon with all the other food to try in Singapore so we might as well try it while we had the chance.

Judging from the following pictures, you can judge for yourself whether we made the right choice…

Tried It All

You can’t find a better priced omakase in Singapore! All of that for less than $100 SGD!? To be fair, I was more than full before the last nigiri was formed so you better come hungry. And if you didn’t, don’t worry because you’ll probably sweat it off soon enough from walking around Tanjong Pagar.

We’ll have to come back and try to snag one of the limited lunch omakases. For $18 I can’t imagine it will taste as good as the Uni Omakase, but I bet it’ll taste a whole lot better than the premade sushi at the grocery store. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know once we try it.

Missed Opportunities

I admit it, I missed taking photos, or rather, missed getting good photos of the edamame, seaweed salad, miso soup and probably a few others but I was hungry. Tell you the truth, if the pictures above didn’t sell it, the ones I missed won’t do it for you either. You’ll see them for yourself when you come by for your omakase set.
