The Sushi Bar, Far East Plaza – Literally a hole in the wall…


A small space but so much possibilities!

I chanced upon this Japanese restaurant (I am hard pressed to call it a restaurant though.. more like a cafe yet it is not a cafe. So it is a hole in the wall literally) by mistake one day while shopping at Far East Plaza. Far East Plaza is on Orchard Road and there are lots of manicure/ pedicure shops, shoe shops, clothes shops, alteration shops, hair salons, massage palors, beauty shops where you can get fake eyelashes, hair extensions, facials — in one word, Far East Plaza is HEAVEN to me.

I go to Far East Plaza at least once a week for lunch or dinner, after our body combat classes. I first chanced upon The Sushi Bar because of the wall colour! See how blue it is? It is a really small place and a really rare find. I love little hidden finds in Singapore (where everywhere is so commercialised and crowded) that I come back here pretty often.

I came here for lunch last week, with my book. Every week, I usually have a day where I eat lunch by myself at one of my favourite haunts, armed with a good book. Time to decompress and read and savour my lunch slowly. I get to order as much food as I like, without being asked – are you sure you can eat all that…? YES I CAN.


My 3 thick slices of sashimi




On this trip, I ordered sashimi and salmon aburi roll! Look how thick the slices of sashimi are! I love the sashimi here and at Koh Grill. I don’t eat wasabi so I just dip my sashimi into the Japanese soy sauce. I bite into each slice of sashimi and enjoy the freshness of the fish while I read my book.

As usual, in the whole tiny stall, I am the only person eating alone. And I don’t mind it at all.


Salmon Aburi roll

This is the salmon aburi roll – one of the best-selling items on the menu. The salmon and avocado are always fresh and as you bite into each abundant piece, you can taste the flame-grilled sauce on top of the fish and it all works perfectly.

I love this as much as I love the Shiok Maki at Koh Grill – whenever I have a sushi craving in the morning, I have a hard time deciding if I want to take a bus to Wisma Atria for Koh Grill or go further down for the salmon aburi roll at Far East Plaza.

I remember bringing KW and my sister for dinner one Thursday night and they ran out of rice!! Can you imagine? All the diners were waiting and that was kinda awkward and strange. So if you are coming here, either come early for dinner or come here for lunch. The salmon aburi roll is really popular and I recommend that you try it when you are here.

I am seldom disappointed when I eat here and today was no different.
