I’ve been frequenting Shokutsu Ten at Nex on a very regular basis, at least twice a week, for as long as they’ve taken up occupancy, because I’m literally spoiled for choice. And with seasonal menus sprouting all year round, nobody gets jaded with the selections.

This year, Singapore celebrates the Bicentennial since the founding by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles of the British East India Company, dated in 1819. And because the bicentennial is a celebration none shall miss, Ichiban Boshi has cleverly put their creativity to the works.

Inspired by a list of our world renowned national signature dishes, Ichiban Boshi has conjured a selection of sushi that our countrymen really ought to be proud of.

66441409_174739583535429_5125039258678457942_nAburi Salted Egg Salmon Sushi (Nigiri) – Torch seared salmon nigiri sushi, topped with a dollop of fragrant savory salted egg yolk paste, nice hue of curry scent from the crisp fried curry leaves, and chilli padi to pack some punch. I like it… I like it a lot

62223958_157021715435077_3584691748385009068_nChye Poh Hikiniku Maki – very affordably priced. Minced pork & Chye Poh with spicy sauce with sushi rice, wrapped with paper thin egg crepe, topped with fine chopped spring onions & tobiko. I loved the savory crunch of the chye poh that comes with a mild sweet aftertaste, keeps the palates pining for more.

66096230_181357692867813_3072951841635811704_nChicken Rice Maki – comprises of; chicken cubes, ground ginger & chicken rice chilli, rolled in seaweed & rice, enveloped in paper thin cucumber slice, topped with cherry tomato, a drop of sambal & crisp fried young ginger floss. Looks harmless, but caught my palates by surprise. I actually found this rendition to be clean & lean, and the chilli is lovely.

66856745_504615706977998_9017424421877170361_nChilli Crab Sushi (Gunkan) – Soft shell crab tempura, drizzled with chilli crab sauce, on sushi rice, separated using red chicory, wrapped round with paper thin sliced cucumber, topped with black tobiko, thin sliced spring onions & chili padi. Chilli crab eating just got easier and tastes wholesome, cos its not just extremities, but a whole softshell crab halved. Loved it!

65386806_208799640040738_5752801463410513298_nNasi Lemak Sushi (Gunkan) – this is the miniature Nasi Lemak comprising of halved quail egg, roasted peanut, crispy ikan bilis & sambal chilli stacked on a ball of sushi rice wrapped round with paper thin cucumber slice. It was love at first bite, but I think it’d be more impressive, had it been a Temaki version.

For a limited period, available through July 9 to August 26, 2019 only. These dishes are only prepared a la minute, so, do expect a bit of waiting time, subject to dining capacity & orders, estimate 15-20min perhaps.
