If there is one quintessential food that Japan has gifted to the food world, that would be sushi. 

Elegant, recognizably Japanese in origin, prepared by skillful hands, and a deep understanding of fresh, quality ingredients, seemingly limitless elements, and flavors are possible. 

No wonder there is such a gracious acceptance of people worldwide when it comes to enjoying sushi. And you don’t have to travel far, because some of the best ones on the island can be found in the bustling Bugis. 

Split your chopsticks as we look at our top picks:

  1. En Sushi 

Situated at 112 Middle Road, Midland House, En Sushi pays homage to the treasures of the sea in the form of sashimi and sushi. Decked out in modern Japanese furnishings and soft lighting, En Sushi offers seafood dishes created to perfection using the freshest ingredients flown in daily. 

Prices may vary depending on the season, but you’ll be surprised that food of such quality doesn’t come with a hefty price tag. 

Our bets go to the elegant plate of the 9-kind En Sushi Moriawase. Each piece displays beautiful colors of fish meat which include otoro, chutoro, akami, madai, shimaaji, uni, ikura, aka ebi, and hirame. Guests may also enjoy other signature dishes, such as the best Bara Chirashi Don, at $16.80. 

Guests are welcome daily, 11:30 AM – 3:00 PM, and 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM.

The items that won our hearts are the Jumbo Caramelised Salmon ($2.50), Mentaiko Scallop Sushi ($2.50), and if you can’t pick one, the Triple Flavour Salmon Selection comes in 3s. The Seared Beef Sushi ($3) and the Assorted Sashimi ($3) were also of high recommendation.

For sushi lovers, the experience is not to be missed. Get year seat from 11:30 AM – 9:30 PM daily, Bugis Junction #02-53, 200 Victoria Street. 

  1. Itacho Sushi

A certain notion attached to most restaurant chain brands is that the quality of food and service may be inconsistent and that it could be too commercial. But this was proven to be untrue for Itacho Sushi which currently has several branches across prime locations in Singapore.

Being the most popular premium sushi restaurant chain, they pride themselves on the well-executed sushi creations that use only high-quality ingredients and authentic Japanese techniques. 

The consistent high-flyer is the Fatty Salmon Sushi ($2) and the premium Bluefin Tuna with Tendon ($8). If you have a big appetite, the beautiful Aburi Sushi Set ($12.80) of Roasted Salmon and Cod Fish Caviar, Roasted Mackerel, Shrimp Olive Black Truffle, Roasted Duck Breast, and Roasted Squid is outstanding.

Itacho Sushi at 200 Victoria Street welcomes customers from 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM daily.
