Sushi Tei
#02-13, Ngee Ann City
6737 8878

I think my last visit to Sushi Tei was when Vivocity 1st opened. Yes, it's been THAT long so this visit was long overdued.

The Umaki ($6++) was so good! The sweet omelette complemented the savoury eel perfectly. I like!

The ubiquitious Potato Croquette ($3.20++) found at any self-respecting Japanese restaurant was perfectly fried till the breadcrumbs turned a golden hue. The potato inside was so soft that you don't have to bite at all and there's also chunks of carrot and corn studded in it. A tad pricey but worth a try.

Our main course was the Collagen Salmon Belly and Hotate Nabe ($18++). This is perfect for 2 or 3 persons as the serving was quite large. A electric stove was brought to our table and the waitress instructed us to wait for about 15mins for the huge block of collagen to melt before tucking in.

We chose to have a miso base (the other 2 choices are shoyu or spicy). The broth was super sweet! And since it's good for the skin (with all the collagen), I slurped it all up. But after the 2nd bowl, the high sodium level started to kick in. The salmon belly was my favourite since the fats literally melted in my mouth. For those who haven't try it before, think of pork belly and the layers of fats in it. Mmm.. Scallops were also very sweet and plump!

There are quite a few other items on the menu that I want to try so I'll definitely come back again! Service was also very efficient and friendly. I requested for a refill of water when the manager walked past our table pushing a trolley full of dirty dishes. She immediately "abandoned" the trolley and went to get the jug of water. Thumbs up for placing the customers' needs 1st!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
