With long queues at Ion Orchard, Itacho Sushi (which means “chief chef” in Japanese) has already established a resounding reputation in Hong Kong, with 7 branches there and counting. It has two new branches in Singapore, the second at Plaza Singapura and third at Bugis Junction.
The key to any sushi is freshness. And Itacho imports its ingredients fresh directly from Japan’s Tsukiji fish market, Hokkaido and Kyushu. That is a major selling point, along with its mission to offer “first class food at a low price”.
If you are a fan of chawanmushi, do not forget to try the steamed egg ($4.00). Let the smooth silky custard –like egg slip down your throat, with the crabmeat adding a touch of saltiness.
