Ichiban Sushi #1
#B1-55, Jurong Point Shopping Centre
Sharon, Elaine and I met up with Hui Qing to celebrate her 21st birthday! There was such a long queue outside the restaurant that it was past 8pm when we were finally seated.
Sharon's Gyu Teriyaki Don ($11.90++) arrived first. The beef rice bowl was so big that she had trouble finishing it.
My Unagi Yanagawa ($11.90++) was less value for money. The BBQ eel was paired with scrambled egg and shimmered in dashi stock. Maybe because I was very hungry, I found this to be delicious!
The birthday girl ordered the Ichiban Bento ($15.90++) which came with grilled mackerel, assorted tempura, salmon sashimi, chawanmushi and rice. I liked the mackerel as the flesh was firm and juicy.
Elaine's Salmon Sukiyaki ($13.90++) arrived bubbling hot and smelled so good! The dashi stock was brimming with assorted vegetables and starchy noodles. All of us agreed that the stock was very sweet and flavourful.
Fresh and thick cuts of salmon sashimi and a raw egg were served on the side.
Most of the shops were closing by the time we left the restaurant. So Hui Qing's birthday cake was bought from Bangawasolo. If I didn't remember wrongly, it was coffee cake topped with pieces of walnut.
It's always great to meet up with old friends in a restaurant with casual and friendly atmosphere. Food wise, nothing memorable but not horrible either. I wouldn't mind coming back to give its menu another go. And more importantly, Happy 21st Birthday, Hui Qing!
