The UTW (“Under Ten Words”): Queue-tastic, massively popular value-for-Money Japanese chirashi bowl goodness.

The must-orders (if any): Bara Chirashi Don, Seasonal Chirashi Dons

Summary: One of the breakout stars of 2016 thanks to its ridiculously photogenic and value-for-money marinated bara chirashi don, Sushiro has gone on to rapidly expand from its humble shopping mall food bazaar origins to having both the original space as well as a prominent mall entrance shopfront, and the crowds have not ebbed, attracting virtually every walk of life imaginable in the Upper Thomson area and beyond, from cost-conscious teens to adult working foodies and even dads and mums with their own parents. Apart from the signatures, the lesser-rated seasonal chirashi items have always delivered – the Sanshoku Chirashi Don includes a self-fan inducing, shiokly spicy salmon, whilst elsewhere the Premium Sanshoku Don features a luxuriously meltastic chutoro that rivals the big expensive Japanese boys. Both items are seasonal, so do enquire in advance on their availability.

Sanshoku Chirashi Don - Sushiro SingaporeSanshoku Chirashi Don – bara chirashi/salmon belly/spicy salmon ($15.90). Whilst the other counterparts deliver with familiar competence, the standout in this fishy ménage a trois is undoubtedly the marinated spicy salmon, essentially chunks of creamy, powdery, incendiary bites of pleasure.

Premium Sanshoku Don - Sushiro SingaporePremium Sanshoku Don – bluefin fatty tuna belly, Norwegian salmon belly, Hokkaido salmon caviar ($32.80). Essentially traditional Japanese classic premium freshness – the chutoro tastes every bit its price tag, which is more Oxley Road to their signature Bara Chirashi Don’s Woodlands Street 13.

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food, and that it was time to share his findings with others. Instead of aligning himself with the vast sea of vanilla foodie influencer-style of writing, which would admittedly open more doors in terms of free meals and public relations love, Shawn decided to approach food writing by way of satirical humour, turning the don't-ya-wanna-eat-what-I'm-eating-cuz-I'm-a-public-figure self-importance/self-indulgent gravitas of Instagram foodie-ism in Singapore on its head and conveying his thoughts about food in a manner which is decidedly obscure at times and on others, frankly nonsensical. The rigours of legal practice and desire for a form of indulgent escape led to Shawn's second passion - experiencing and writing about new and luxury hotel properties. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional critic, blogger or photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food and luxury hotels very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. Shawn is presently a full-time lawyer, and when he is not premature ageing due to stress and vicious deadlines, he is somewhere spending an exorbitant amount of money trying out new dining places and hotels.
