TEN Sushi – Premium Sushi Experience [MEDIA INVITE]

Japanese Fresh Oysters - Sakoshi Bay Oysters @ Ten Sushi

TEN Sushi by Marusaya (“TEN Sushi”) is a casual Japanese dining concept by Marusaya Co., Ltd. Founded in 1962, Marusaya is a wholesaler dedicated to Katsuobushi (dried bonito) for professional use.

Ten Sushi

TEN Sushi focus on premium sushi and contemporary Japanese cuisine prepared with fine ingredients air-flown from Japan. Located in vibrant Robertson Quay where the experience continues past midnight. Ten Sushi open from 5PM till 3 AM. Sushi for supper, No Problem.

The Table Setting

We started our tasting with Japanese Fresh Oysters (Sakoshi Bay Oysters; $28 for 6 pieces, $49 for 12 pieces). This oyster is served chilled topped alternately with tobiko, grated radish soaked with soy sauce and chopped spring onion; or ikura, grated radish soaked in soy sauce and edible chrysanthemums petals. Lemon is served together with the oysters but I don’t think it is needed.

The oysters are plump, creamy and meaty, while the garnish on top added the salty and brainy spark to the oysters. Yum, a good start to the meal and it is suitable with some cold sake.

Ten Assorted Sashimi Deluxe ($58). Consist of tuna, salmon, scallop, squid, sweet prawn, ikura and seasonal fish. One word to describe the sashimi is HUGE!!. The cut of each sashimi is generous and the tuna belly is fatty and delicious. LD like the uni and sweet prawns very much.

Unagi Eel Roll ($18 for 4 pieces, $32for 8 pieces). Another jumbo version of the roll that is not commonly found in Singapore. The unagi is moist with soft bouncy feel to it. The unagi sauce packs of umami flavour with a good balance of sweetness. I like the unique sushi rice, where they added chopped Gari (pickled sushi ginger) to balance any overwhelming flavours from the unagi. Yummy!!

Tamagoyaki ($9). This homemade of Japanese rolled omelette is one of the better one that LD & I ever tried outside Japan. The shape is beautiful, while the egg flavour is solid, eggy plus a touch of sweetness. Worth to order on its own.

A4 Wagyu Aburi Sushi. ($18 for 2 pieces, $44 for 5 pieces). Due to the tasting, we have the front seat of looking at how this sushi is prepared. True to its name, the wagyu beef has a nice marbling in it, covering the small sushi rice ball. A touch of sweet sauce and chopped spring onions are added to enhance the flavour of the wagyu. Let’s just say, one-piece won’t be enough. Yummy!!

Aburi Salmon Avocado Roll ($20 for 8 pieces). Our first impression is this roll is very messy. However, the creamy avocado and aburi salmon work nicely in tandem. Topped with chopped onion, spring onions, teriyaki sauce, mayonnaise and tobiko, making it a mouth-watering sushi roll.

Omakase Sushi (12-piece sushi, roll sushi, $49). Signature sushi combination at Ten Sushi. Provided a good spread of 12 different types of premium sushi, seafood including uni, unagi, tuna belly, salmon belly, scallops and more; plus, roll sushi. Each of the sushi is delicious on its own, providing a good insight into the top-notch quality ingredients used by Ten Sushi. Presented in a slim long plank, it just gave added a WOW factor to the sushi. Two thumbs up.

Sushi Box ($49 for 12 pieces, $98 for 24 pieces). Almost like Omakase sushi, but presented on a big square wooden plank. Good for sharing, but it does not have the same WOW factor as the Omakase Sushi.

Dashi Miso Soup ($4). To complete the sushi experience, miso soup is a must. The miso soup is made with the mixed of dashi sold by Marusaya group. The soup tastes more robust with an extra touch umami flavour in it. A perfect way to end the meal.

The seating area in Ten Sushi is divided into Chef’s Table and alfresco. Most of the seating is alfresco as it has limited space on the Chef’s table. It utilises the big compound of The Quayside dining hall, making the dining experience more vibrant. The sake list is very compact; however, you can definitely find one that suits your preference.

The Quayside

Overall, Ten Sushi provided an exquisite contemporary Japanese sushi experience. The quality of the ingredients is top-notch and the portions are generous as well. The ambience is vibrant and casual plus you can have it until wee hours in the morning. For the next sushi experience, check out Ten Sushi. Kanpai!! Cheers!!

Thank you very much Jennifer Yeo Consultancy and Ten Sushi Team for hosting us.

Note: In addition to TEN Sushi, the Marusaya Co., Ltd also owns MAI by Dashi Master Marusaya at Bukit Pasoh, Dashi Master Marusaya at Robertson Quay and the new Japanese Italian Omakase restaurant, Monte Risaia.
