10 Unique Sushi In Singapore That Come With Crazy Local Twists

30th November 2016

Sushi with a local twist


Sushi is something I’ll never get bored of. Whether it’s topped with tamago (egg) or aburi salmon, I’m always in for a round of plate-stacking by a conveyor belt. But as a Singaporean, hawker food is something I can’t get enough of either. So rolling up Singaporeans’ favourite hawker fare in Japanese style makes me go ‘Imposibruuu!’ yet gets me all excited in my seat! For those who want to try something totally different yet uniquely Singaporean, here’s a list of sushi with a local twist that only Singaporeans will get.


1. Laksa Maki

There’s no harm in eating laksa the Japanese way. Laksa Maki ($9.90++ for six pieces), Reddo’s signature Singaporean-style sushi, is made up of thick bee hoon, tamago, cucumber, prawns and tau pok rolled in nori (seaweed). The makis are doused with fragrant, spicy laksa broth and topped with crispy salmon skin. Shut up and take my money!

2. Char Siew Maki

The Japanese pride themselves for fresh sashimi cuts while Singaporeans pride ourselves for our local hawker fare. Here’s one of our favourite hawker food, char siew rice, turned Japanese.  Char Siew Maki ($12.90++ for six pieces) at Reddo consists of diced char siew glazed in the familiar sweet and savoury sauce, nori and Japanese pearl rice. As if that’s not appetising enough, each maki is topped with a generous slice of char siew and cucumbers.

3. Popiah Sushi

Popiah already looks somewhat like a sushi, which is probably why the people behind 968 Popiah decided to transform it into Pohpiah Sushi ($2 for four pieces)Rolling up the usual turnip filling, crab meat, peanuts and egg is popiah skin and nori. To top if off is a whole prawn, mayonnaise and their signature chilli. Now, even my ah ma can be convinced to try sushi with this. Go down early if you wanna have this for dinner because we heard they’re usually sold out by 6pm!

No need for wasabi when there’s Hae Bee Hiam Sushi ($2.50 for three pieces) at iSushi. Savoury and spicy, this shrimp sambal is not just good in tiny fried spring rolls, but on sushi rice as well. As queer as it sounds, this sushi proves to be an addictive treat for spicy food lovers. Wasabi challenge is so last year – dare your buddies to hae bee hiam sushi!

5. Musubi

I never miss out on luncheon meat in my nasi lemak and economic bee hoon, so Aloha Poke’s Musubi($11 for six pieces) is a dream come true! A strip of nori holds the chunky slice of caramelized luncheon meat and sushi rice together, and you can bet that this is packed with a whole lot of umami.

6. Curry Sushi

We’re trying to curry favour with Rollie Olie’s Bollywood ($14.95 for eight pieces) ’cause we need it in our lives. Featuring curry prawns and curry mayo alongside avocado, cucumber, tamago, and tempura crunch, this roll guarantees a myriad of textures. There’ll be a spicy kick to it, but worry not because the avocado and mayo base will tame it promptly.

7. Salted Egg Crab Sushi

With most Singaporeans being salted-egg-anything fans, Salted Egg Crab Sushi ($5.90++ for two pieces) from Reddo is one fusion we’ll welcome with open arms and mouths. Fresh crab meat is seasoned with glorious salted egg sauce that is creamy, rich and savoury, which has me going YASSS.

8. Chicken Rice Sushi

If there’s one signature Singaporean dish I miss when I’m away, it would be chicken rice. Lepark knows how to tug my heart strings with Poached Chicken Sushi ($8 for six pieces) that transforms chicken rice into a modern tapas. Retaining the flavour that will remind you of home, this fragrant chicken rice ball topped with succulent poached chicken and signature Hainanese chicken rice chilli should not be missed!

Besides the keeping up with the salted egg craze, Reddo whips up sushi that even foreigners would recognize as Singaporean.
