When I don’t know what to eat, usually sushi is always a good choice for me. Especially if I have to try a new place (and it was a recommendation from a friend). Genki Sushi is a sushi chain in Singapore and you will find a queue most of the time at their outlets. There are several outlets all over Singapore, such as in orchard central, bugis junction, and chinatown. We were in Orchard area at that time, and the closest one was in Takashimaya (Ngee Ann City), just next to a big Guardian store in Basement 2. Weird that they don’t have this outlet listed on their website.
There were some people before us on the queue, but it wasn’t take long for us to get our seat. The place is quite big as well. We got a seat at table number 2. Each table has a number and a station name. For our table, it was Ueno. Once we sat down, the waitress gave us an ipad with menu on it. First of all, we picked our drink. Hot green tea for me. They gave us the empty glass and I had to pour the green tea (2 small spoon is enough) and boiled water by myself, then mixed it with the back of our chopstick! Fun 😀
Next, we ordered food! Starting from the left is sushi menu. The unique thing from this restaurant is the way they deliver the food. They deliver it with a mini train! There are 3 lines of train on the side of the table. Each train can only bring 4 items. For example, we ordered 3 portions of salmon sushi, then we had to click 3 times and it filled 3 spaces of the mini train on ipad. Once we have 4 items on the train, we can click on execution / delivery. Then continue with another order! Can be another sushi, gunkan, maki, sashimi, fried dish, rice and noodle dish. Or even a dessert!
After a while, a train came to our table. Of course, I took a photo! Then we took out all of the food. Once the train was empty, we had to clicked on the button to send the train back. The button that we have to click is depend on which line the train is. There are 3 lines of railway. If the empty train is in number 2, then we have to click button number 2, which is in the middle. It was fun!
Their food was delicious as well. They were fresh and cooked well. I love all of the stuff that we ordered! Their price is reasonable as well. According to my friend, it is the same as sushi tei, but the food quality is better.
Once we finished with our food, we had to go to the cashier and mentioned our table. They showed us our order and after confirming it, we paid it to the cashier.
It was a new and fun experience for me. Plus the food was also yummy. I would recommend you to try this place when you are visiting Singapore. Genki Sushi also available in Japan (well doh!), USA, Hong Kong and China. Also, I would like to thank my friends for taking me to this place!
Have you tried this place before? Do you have any other place you would recommend for me to try? Let me know in the comment below.
