Sushi Tei @ West Coast Plaza, Singapore

Sushi Tei has been around in Singapore since 1994, serving authentic Japanese cuisine with much affordable prices compared to many other restaurants. Why do people love it? First, there's the great value. Second, there's the quality. If you still have doubts, simply head down to any of their outlets during meal hours and see for yourself.

Their dishes never fail to impress me. A mix of innovation and creativity is probably how I would described their offerings. Take Rainbow Roll (S$13.80) for example, a classic presentation of colours in one single dish, topped with roes and drizzled with Japanese mayonnaise. Not to even mention the mouth-gasm that goes along each and every piece of sushi. Another sushi dish I highly recommend would be their Dragon Roll (S$14, S$9 for mini) - a beautiful combination of avocado slices and deep fried prawn. The thing is, I don't usually take avocado, but the complement of flavours was a true surprise for everyone on the table.


What's a Japanese meal without their classic appetiser - Chawanmushi (S$4.30)? Check out their rendition of this steamed egg custard, which is soft and silky, and literally melts in your mouth.


Gyu Yanagawa (S$12.80) - a combination of soft and tender beef slices with burdock root and eggs, is satisfyingly sweet and savoury, and concurrently, providing great warmth to the stomach. The broth also acts as a awesome gravy to their authentic Japanese rice.


Kaisen Ramen (S$15.80) is your typical ramen complemented by assorted seafood, such as prawns and squid rings, doused in a choice of either tonkotsu broth, shoyu or spicy miso. The noodles had a Japanese standard of al-dente - springy, yet is firm to the bite.


Chocolate Wafer (S$3.60) might not looked like much, but these ice cream wafers, with a dark, rich chocolate wrapped within, made for an excellent dessert after a heavy meal. Those who a sweet-tooth would be delighted that Sushi Teh does indeed have a great variety of desserts, such as parfaits, ice-cream and jellies.


Sushi Teh has been around for as long as I could remember, but its quality and service have been very consistent (or arguably better) throughout the years, making it a brand that most Singaporeans love for its affordable, yet quality Japanese cuisine.
