News: Kuriya Japanese Market & Ichiban Boshi – Hot New Japanese Fare at Great World City

Drool worthy news to me and fellow casual Japanese dining foodies 😀


Favorite local Japanese restaurants Kuriya Japanese Market and Ichiban Boshi and are back in business following outlet face-lifts and menu makeovers. While retaining its fresh fish focus, Kuriya Japanese Market has been transformed based on the ‘modern uoichiba (fish market)’ concept with great creativity and originality.

New features include a hot snack kiosk offering pumpkin croquettes, ebi fry, salmon teriyaki & saba shioyaki with prices range from S$1.80 to S$7.80. And also located within the market is a new bakery corner, serving fresh, delectable bakery items produced by sister brand, Green Pumpkin.

To celebrate its opening, Kuriya Japanese Market is offering a special deal on Aurora Salmon available on Fri/Sat/Sun (now until 28 September 2014). Kuriya Japanese Market chefs have created a list of special takeaway items with this fresh Aurora Salmon, including Yuzu Tsuke Salmon (S$6.50), Sasa Oshizushi (S$4.90), Toro Taku Sushi (S$10.90) and Chirashi Cup (S$9.90).

Ichiban Boshi welcomes casual diners with a fresh new makeover and menu featuring a variety  of moderately priced items such as Tokusen Aburi Sushi (S$19.90), Ichiban Gozen (S$25.90)  and Tokusen Kaisen Don (S$20.90).

As each Ichiban Boshi restaurant is slightly different from the others with special focus on items, the specialty at the Great World City outlet is sakana (fish). Fresh seafood is imported directly from Japan thrice a week from Osaka. High-quality Japanese fish such as Ayu Shioyaki (S$14.90), Buri Toro Sashimi (S$13.90), Aji Zanmai (S$29.90) and Kodai Kara Miso Hoiru (SS22.90) are all features of the menu. In addition, diners can enjoy the Aurora Salmon Gozen at just $29.90.

Available only on Fri/Sat/Sun from 15 Aug till end Sept, an all-salmon set meal features udon with salmon in soup, grilled salmon with cod roe mayonnaise, salmon sashimi in yukke (a spicy Korean-style sauce with sesame oil) and assorted salmon sushi.

Browsing through the press release photos, I can’t help but feel super hungry and salivating even when I just had lunch.
For food critics, sure it wouldn’t be like having a meal at Tsukiji Fish Market but as long as it’s fresh seafood flown in from Japan, I would give it a try.

After all, it’s one of the few casual Japanese dining restaurants near home and work, for a good and quick meal 😀
But I guess when the fiance see this (planned post), we would find time to go GWC for some o-nom-nom session.
