Celebrating Food! Celebrating Life!

Sakae Sushi @ Citylink Mall

Hi-Tea Buffet @ Sakae Sushi, City Link Mall, City Hall MRT station. Its $18.90 +++ per head and runs from 3 pm to 5 pm . We didn’t have lunch and we thought, why not? Could eat this and skip dinner as well!

Sakae Sushi

Buffet includes all coloured plates at $1.99, 1 pink plate ($3.99) and 1 red plate ($5.99) per pax. It also comes with a complimentary bowl of udon, either with wakame (sea weed) or Kitsune (Japanese sweet beancurd skin) which was really simple but yet refreshing we thought. the picture shows a combination of both toppings, and narutomaki.

More Salmon (sake) sushi. we had 4 servings of these! The later servings were more around the belly region aka fatty! We need omega-3 acids!

Sakae Sushi

Ikura (salmon roe) Gunkan sushi. Honestly, we didn’t eat this. We just took it off the conveyor belt, took a picture and put it back. Naughty us! :p

Unagi (grilled conger eel) & Shiitake mushroom Gunkan sushi. Couldn’t really taste the unagi though..

Tai (Sea bream) sushi. It came out a bit cold, almost like it was just taken out of the fridge. Grrrr….

Sakae Sushi

Maguro (Tuna) sushi. Not fantastic as it’s a real lean (non-fatty) cut. And its real pale, which means the blood has been largely drained off. What a waste.

Edamame, a staple order at any izayaka

More soft shell crab maki. The toasted sesame seeds really lends aroma and texture to the rice when they are crushed.

Sakae Sushi

takoyaki aka takopachi. Palatable but not fabulous. There is a small bit of tako inside each ball though.

King’s mango sherbet ice-cream for dessert. Quite yummy!

King’s brownie ice-cream for dessert.

Well, is it of good value? I would say yes. But this is the quality of “we serve only what we eat” like what Sakae professes? I doubt so. Some bits of the buffet are nice, like the agemono (fried) items. But some are less desirable, like the maguro and tai sushi.

Would we be back again? Well, probably when we are very hungry and wanna save some money by having lunch and dinner in one seating, and if we happen to be in the vicinity. Not worth a purposeful visit, we reckon.
