Sushi Kanazawa @ International Building

Location: International Building, #02-13 360 Orchard Road

One of my friend's colleague mentioned that Sushi Kanazawa is quite a good place for sushi so we decided to check it out.

Sushi Kanazawa Tel: 6738 3833
It is best to make reservations because the shopfront is pretty small. Only 12 seats in front of the sushi counter.

How it works:
1) What is interesting about Sushi Kanazawa is that the chef decides what you eat. (Unless of course you request the chef to make some other sushi)

2) Each customer have a plate in front of them which the chefs will place on after making.

Two chefs were making the sushi when my friend and I visited. They are so skilful: the way they slice the sashimi and their technique of making the sushi with one or two presses.

Buffet Price (Weekday): $37 per person.

Piping hot green tea. These are served with tea leaves residues which sank to the bottom so I figure that don't use the tea bag ones. Quite to my liking. I dislike those that taste like plain water.

Edamame(peas) are on the table for munching while we wait for our sushi.

Sashimi Moriawase - Starter.  Tuna, Salmon, White Fish and Squid Sashimi. These are thick sashimi unlike those petty portions in umisushi. Freshness is guaranteed.  I love raw fish with wasabi. They are the perfect combination.

Nikujaga (Stewed Chicken & Vegetables) - A small bowl of soup with chicken bits, radish, fried tofu and a jelly cube which taste like sea cucumber (I have no idea what that is).

From left to right: Aji (Horse Mackerel), Shake Aburi (Seared Salmon)

Ika (Squid), Amaebi Mentai Aburi (Seared Sweet Prawn with Cod Roe)

Unagi Aburi


Kajiki (Swordfish), Maguro (Red Tuna)

Negitoro Temaki (Minced Belly of Tuna)

Fugu (pufferfish), Tobiko (flying fish roe)

Rating: 4.5/5

Give it a try. Yummylicious.

I suggest you starve yourself before going. I only managed to eat around 17 pieces of sushi because the rice is really filling. If you have a huge appetite and love sushi, I definitely recommend this.
