What comes to your mind when you think of Japan? For me, it has definitely got to be sushi and this sushi joint needs no introduction. Sushi-GO is best known for their cute GO-bots delivering your food to you, and they’ve just opened an outlet in the CBD with all new menu items.
Sushi-GO’s newest outlet is located in Marina Square and features over 150 items on their menu, including outlet-exclusives like the petite Kaisen Dons. Just looking through the menu will leave you spoilt for choice. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
The sushi joint has a pretty grand menu of sushi including all your classic favourites from makis to handrolls, sashimi, and so much more. I was intrigued by the Corn Mayo-Go (S$3.50) and having tried it I must say that I might be a new convert to Corn Mayo. The sweet and creamy corn mayo contrasted well with the sushi rice.
The corn mayo also had some tempura bits that gave the sushi and extra crunch. I will definitely be ordering this when I’m back here again.
Another must-try is the Aburi Hanasaki Salmon Sushi (S$3.50). It comes with a fresh and thick slice of salmon sashimi topped with a slice of lemon and ikura. The lemon slice elevated the freshness of the salmon while the ikura added a nice burst of flavour.
If you’re worried about the lemon being too sour, don’t worry as the sweetness from the salmon and the savouriness from the ikura does help to mask some of the lemony zing. Feel free to avoid the lemon peel if you’re not fond of its bitter aftertaste.
For those who prefer the maki rolls, go for the Cheezy Dragon Roll (S$9.20). It is a standard maki roll with barbecued eel, Japanese pickles, shrimp roe, omelette, drizzled with a sweet teriyaki sauce, mayo, and lots of cheese — because everything tastes better with cheese. While it might sound pretty jelak but surprisingly it wasn’t.
The barbecue eel soaked up all the flavours from the teriyaki sauce and was sweet and tender. But the star of the show was probably the sauce mix which was an interesting blend of sweet, savoury, and creamy flavours, that somehow managed to work beautifully for this sushi. The pickles inside the sushi also helps to add some crunch while also cutting out some grease from the sauce mix, which explains why it wasn’t as jelak as it sounds.
Sushi-GO also has a selection of cooked foods like the Okonomiyaki Fries (S$3.80), which is a serving of crispy fries with okonomiyaki seasoning, tobiko flakes and nori. It was super addictive and if you’re a lover of Tamago, there’s also a Okonomiyaki Tamago (S$3.80) version which features a chunky piece of sweet Japanese egg.
What’s unique to Sushi-GO’s new outlet are the Petite Kaisen Dons with up to eight different flavours to choose from including Butsugiri Salmon Avocado Don (S$12.90), Butsugiri Salmon Mentai Don (S$12.90), Una Tama Don (S$10.90) and more.
If you love salmon sashimi as much as I do, then you should definitely get the Atsugiri Salmon Ikura Don (S$13.90). It comes with three thick and juicy slices of salmon that are super fresh. The portion is also just the right size for those who are looking to get something light for lunch.
For something a little more unique, you can go for the Amaebi Yukke Don (S$10.90) which comes with a generous serving of fresh shrimp and a runny onsen egg. The sweet shrimps are coated in a kimchi and mirin sauce which gives it a refreshing spice kick without being overpowering spicy. So, even those with low spice tolerance can handle this dish.
Great news for all of you don lovers — Sushi-GO is having a special promotion for all Petite Kaisen Dons. Taking place on 12 and 13 September 2023, the Petite Kaisen Dons will be priced at just S$4.99 (U.P. S$9.90 to S$13.90) — super value for money! This promotion is only available at the Marina Square outlet.
Looks like it’s time for a little sushi date with my besties!
