There are a couple of sushi chains in Singapore. One of them is Sakae Sushi.

Sakae Sushi, one of Singapore's household name, is  a quick-serviced conveyor belt sushi concept. It has more than 30 outlets in Singapore and has strong presence in Asia in China, Philippines, Malaysia and so on.

My family and I happened to be shopping at Compass Point. It was also dinner time. Most restaurants were already crowded and have long queue lines. Luckily, the customer turnover at Sakae Sushi was quicker and we managed to get a table in less than 30 minutes. We ordered some dishes from the menu and took sushi from the conveyor belt. We did not need to wait long to have the non-conveyor belt dishes to be served. The experience was fantastic and easy.

We spent a total amount of SGD81.12  for 4 pax. It was a delectably and sumptuous dinner. My family and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

One of my latest favourites, Fried Salmon Skin. I ordered a serving to share. The salmon skin was crispy and lightly salted. Even my mother who dislikes fish skin enjoyed it too. It tasted like fish crackers. (Food rating: 3/5)

Kappa Maki (Cucumber Sushi) is my favourite. It is made of Japanese rice and cucumber, a good combination for vegans and non-sashimi customers. The sushi tasted yummy when eaten on its own or dipped in the Japanese sushi soy sauce. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

When I was browsing the menu, the Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab kept beckoning me to order it. I think we made the right decision to order this seafood. The meat was succulent and tasty. The seasoning was well-prepared. It had a nice savoury taste. It was just nice for sampling especially with so many other food on the table. (Food rating: 3/5)

Cold Buckwheat Noodles in chilled broth was refreshing. It is best eaten during Summer or a hot day. The serving was just nice for one person. The buckwheat noodles were cooked in al dente style and it was chewy. (Food rating: 3/5)

Pumpkin Croquette, when served, was piping hot. The pumpkin was sweet and the tempura crust was crispy and golden brown. You can definitely eat it on its own. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

Gyoza or Japanese Dumplings or Guo Tie (锅贴) were pan fried. Well, they tasted normal. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

I love Tuna Mayo. I will usually order a tuna mayo maki. This time, I ordered myself a Tuna Mayo Hand Roll. The generous serving of tuna mayo and crispy seaweed sheet were delicious. (Food rating: 3/5)

I always order a Sunshine Maki each time I patronise Sakae Sushi. The ingredients include mango, prawn, roe and Japanese rice. I liked the sweet mango slices over the sushi roll. Apparently, I felt that the size or length of the sushi had shrunk. Because of the sweet mango slices, you can just eat it on its own. (Food rating: 3/5)
