Burger unbelievers like me will never get the hype about patties sandwiched between two buns. The game-changer, however, comes when those buns are replaced with fluffy Japanese rice instead. Now that, I can get behind. Enter #ricesando, Japan’s trending sushi sandwiches, arriving as the first of its kind right here in sunny Singapore.
Thick sushi sandwiches
She’s thick, she’s juicy, and she’s most definitely tasty. Yes, I’m referring to our rice sandos, and what about it? Bite into the Sunny Hamburg (S$6.80) featuring a ground beef patty with an 8:2 meat to fat ratio and a runny sunny side up.
Otherwise, there’s also the special Gyu Sukiyaki (S$6.20) seared on the spot atop a teppanyaki grill and drizzled with #ricesando’s signature sauce presenting a blend of fuji apple, ginger puree, soya sauce, mirin, and minced onions.
An unexpected favourite, however, turned out to be the fork-tender Unagi (S$7.80) sando which paired delectably with the slight sweetness of the rolled tamago it was sandwiched with. While seemingly unassuming, the duo came together in a fistful of flavour and balance.
There also exists a plant-based option by way of the Inari Mushroom (S$6.40) comprising sautéed honshimeiji and shitake mushrooms glazed with an original red and white Hokkaido miso sauce, all encased within a soft inari skin. And of course, it’s hard to go wrong with the classic Tuna Corn (S$4.60) that boasts an unfailing, creamy meld.
Set meals at +S$4.80
When you top up S$4.80 to the price of your rice sando, you’re entitled to the set meal which consists of a drink and a side of choice. Choose from Karaage (a la carte at S$3.80), French Fries (a la carte at S$3.80), Coleslaw (a la carte at S$3.80), and Tonjiru Miso Soup (a la carte at S$3.80) along with a choice of Ayataka tea or bottled water.
