Review - Senmi Sushi (Emporium Shokuhin)

2:56 PM

For one of my close girlfriend's birthday, we decided to bring her to the Japanese Emporium Shokuhin at Marina Square for dinner. 

If you didn't know, Emporium Shokuhin is Singapore's first integrated Japanese Emporium featuring a live seafood market, a beef dry-aging facility, a Japanese Gourmet Grocer and 9 unique dining concepts, all at one location. For us, we headed to Senmi Sushi for dinner. 

Senmi Sushi Review

Senmi Sushi serves a wide variety of sashimi and sushi. Their speciality would be their Giant Chirashi for 2-3pax and Super California-styled Makis.

The restaurant has a cozy and warm ambience. My favourite part of the restaurant would have to be their long sushi bar where you can watch the chefs prepare their sushi and chirashi bowls, just like any Japanese restaurant.

We made a reservation a few days back and we were seated quickly upon arrival. Orders were made through the ipad provided on each table and the food was served very promptly, within 5-10 minutes.

For the month of July and Aug 2017 they are having the following promotions:
Every Monday & Tuesday - 1 for 1 Maki
Every Wednesday and Thursday - 1 for 1 Donburi
Every Friday & Saturday - 1 for 1 Alcohol (Beer, Wine & Sake)
Every Sunday - Kids dine for free with a minimum of S$20 spent

We didn't know about the promotion before hand but lucky for us, we got the 1 for 1 Donburi.

For appetizers, we ordered the Chawanmushi (S$2.60).
Personally, I didn't really enjoy this dish as I felt that it was a little bland.
I don't think I will order this again.

Senmi Sushi Chirashi Don

For mains, my friend got the Premium Chirashi Don (S$28).
It was served in a pretty bowl and came with huge generous chunks of chutoro, mekajiki, sake, hotate, hotate, ame ebi, tamago and topped with ikura.

I got the Special Thick Cut Chirashi Don (S$34). It was served with slices of chutoro, mekajiki, sake and tamago. The fish were fresh but it could have been better.

I was really disappointed with the rice and wasabi... The rice was bland that night and the wasabi didn't taste like it was freshly grated.

For the last Don, we ordered the Aburi Kaisen Don (S$23.80) to share.
Honestly, this doesn't look as appealing as the Aburi's from Sushi Tei or Itacho and the taste was normal. Let's not talk about the rice and wasabi again.

One of my favourites would have to be this Dynamite Maki (S$16.80). I loved the combination of ebi tempura, avocado and torched wagyu beef topped with melted cheese and tempura crunch.

The flavours went really well together and I loved the texture of it.
Looking at this is making me salivate again.


Overall, I think this would be a good option for casual dining or date nights.
With the promotion which is valid till Aug 2017, the Chirashi Dons are pretty worthed a try.
Since you are there, you can explore more of Emporium Shokuhin.
I hope to be back soon to try the other 8 restaurants and explore further...
