Sashimi House SAKURAYA @ Anchorpoint (Part III)

This is one place that my colleague and I would always visit during weekday lunch when we want to eat good value bara chirashi.

As usual, the appetiser and green tea were served right after the orders were taken. The green tea and appetiser are non-chargeable (無料).

carrot, seaweed, egg shreds and glass noodles in vinegar mix

Placed an extra side order for hamachi sashimi. Service was good and though we were seated at a remote area, the service staff do come by every so often to refill our tea.

They were running busy that day, so the main dish only came after a 20 minutes wait, but it's well worthed it. Colourful cubes of tamago, maguro, sake, hamachi, crabstick and bits of cooked ebi on a bed of lightly vinegared rice.

can't wait, いただきます!

Each mouthful was a joy. If only the bara chirashi includes some ikura (fish roe) then this would be a dream to savour. Sometimes when I got too generous with the wasabi, the warm miso would be a good reprieve.

If the rice seemed never-ending at times, a bite or two of the pickled radish would be able to reset the taste buds for the next round.

It was a really satisfying meal. Who needs dinner when one had lunch like this?

There was this piece of shiso (perilla) leaf from the sashimi plate. So made my own chirashi shiso wrap and it tasted good. Heehee!

pretty, yes?

The meal costs about $53 and good for two pax. There's also a 'point' card that one can accumulate points.

dine and accumulate chops
25 stamps is no mean feat!
