I went to help out at the shop today since Jaymes is away. We knocked off early at 6pm and had dinner at Sushi Tei Raffles City. My first & last visit to a Sushi Tei restaurant was 15 years ago at Raffles Place. A friend, Nicholas invited hubby and I to the first conveyor belt sushi restaurant. We had a great lunch. Then I got hooked on Sakae Sushi and never once went back to Sushi Tei.
Recently I heard about Sushi Tei's wonderful menu spread and its beef hot pot. I wanted to have a Beef Hot Pot but it being our 17th Wedding Anniversary Dinner, I had to skip the beef because of hubby's religion, or else tonight I have to 'make do with fruits'. hehe...
Instead I ordered a Kaisen Kaminabe (S$14, Crab, Prawn, Scallop, Salmon - Mixed Seafood Paper Hot Pot). A hot miso soup base was poured into a paper pot containing mixed seafood, over a flame. The soup was really tasty! The crab meat was really sweet! I love this hot pot.
Their speciality dishes are so beautifully presented I just couldn't resist ordering a couple just to take photos! I had the Coral Roll (S$10) and the pretty Dragon Roll (S$10). The sushi rice was fluffy & tasty. The salmon slices & the huge prawn were so fresh!
We ordered 2 Jumbo Yakitori (S$10). It was a great meal.
After dinner, I went to Geylang to pick up durians to make my durian puffs. Good thing I called ahead to order my durians. I rushed home to bake my cake and puffs. And also get ready the ingredients for the popiah filling for tomorrow. Tun & Chris helped me since I had only one hand now. I ended sleeping at 3 am.
