Eating Japanese was the best thing that happened to me this Saturday. It was at Sakae Sushi in Mall of Asia, reputed to have the city’s longest kaiten or conveyor belt. It’s the nearest thing you can have to those places in Japan, only that this one is a Singaporean chain.
See the plates passing by th conveyor belt? They’re color-coded. Purple plates are priced at P39, yellow at P59, green at P79 and red at P99. Sakae Sushi’s eat-all-you can buffet has been packing them in among Asians living in Manila, we heard. Read this sign, the sign looks like something we can try again and again 😛
We had the privilege of going inside the kitchen and got a peek of their sushi robots. The machines wash the rice, cooks it, mixes it and finally molds the rice into the desired sushi shape. Mr. Z thinks it takes the romance out of sushi-making where chefs are known to observe a tedious process. I do think that in this modern age, it’s the way to go! The machines look expensive though….
When you prefer food other than sushi, the restaurant has an extensive menu of Japanese specialties. I’d really like to try their kaminabe selection next time. It’s seafood, meats, and vegetables in clear broth that is placed in “burn-proof paper bowl” before being set on top of a burner.
Food, food, food!
I dig the fact that you can get a good Japanese meal at Sakae Sushi for as little as P250 (approximately $5)!
