When my good friend, Cath, introduced me sushi when we were in college, I became a sushi-lover ever since. If I were in an international buffet, you will find my plate loaded with different types of sushi and I will be coming back for more servings. When my niece, a kindred sushi-monster just like me, came over to Singapore for a visit a few months ago, I decided to take her to the mobile sushi bar. I picked Sushi Express at Tampines 1. Everything at $1.50! Yey!
For those who are not familiar with a mobile sushi bar, it is sushi bar where you get to see your sushi being prepared by the sushi chef and plates of sushi are placed on the conveyor belt where it will whirl around to all the customers. Customers get to just pick a plate of sushi that they like by getting the plate once it is near your reach. I tried this type of sushi-eating in Sydney, Australia before. It is usually color-coded in different colored plates depending on the prices but in Sushi Express, it all came in these pale orange plates.
There were several interesting choices of sushi. Though my niece and I were a bit disappointed that we didn’t see any California Maki. And the tricky part of the mobile sushi bar is that we can wait a bit for any new addition to the dishes that is rolling in front of you. Sometimes you second-guess you choice and decided not to take it and then regretted that you didn’t take it, so you wait a little bit more for it to come back to you if it is not already taken yet.
You get unlimited green tea that you can pour for yourself from an attached “faucet” on your table.
This is the stacks of plate we ate. I know it is not a lot. Maybe we were on diet mode that day.
Though the sushi in Sushi Express is not that impressive, it is a good alternative for those who wants to have some mobile sushi bar express in an affordable price.
