Dinner with Miss Pandan and it was her turn to choose and of course it was Japanese, more specifically, sushi train. We went to her favourite sushi train place, Sakura Kaiten Sushi on Collin Street and yes, there is a second one but Miss Train was adamant that we only go to the original one. She also warned me that it’ll be super busy so we got there just before it opened and there were already people waiting outside. Once the doors opened, we were all seated and the train started moving.
So here’s how it works, you can either grab the plates off the conveyor belt OR use the tablet to order whatever you want and the staff will hand it over to you once it’s made. So boys and girlies, buckle down and eat to your hearts content. Everything is fresh and depending on what colour your plates are, they’re different prices. The scallops and tuna sashimi are to die for and they literally melt in your mouth like butter.
Fatty tuna and eel nigiri are my go-to and again they did not disappoint. Miss Pandan’s favourite are the scampis (yes, she went to town on them).
After you’re done, the staff will count your plates and you just go pay at the counter. We did our damage, filled our bellies and counted our plates.
Sakura Kaiten Sushi serves up fresh sushi and sure it’s a touch on the more exy side but trust me, it’s definitely worth it. Sakura Kaiten Sushi, we will definitely be back.
