Ryo Sushi – Quality and Affordable Omakase in Singapore


…But obviously I failed. This place is too good not to miss up on.

If you’ve been following my ‘stagarams and facebook updates you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Ryo. I daresay it’s the best value for money omakase you can get in Singapore (/ Southeast Asia?). Plus I like that I can just rock up without having to look or act too atas.

And though it’s a very friendly non-bank-breaking $38, the quality of seafood has always been fresh the past like, six times I’ve been there, and the chefs painstakingly prep them before every service.

Here’s a walk through¬†some highlights;
I apologize for the bad photo quality because most times I just want to eat ūüė°

Truffled onsen egg with ikura – chef will lightly spray truffled soy sauce on this so the entire egg is coated with just the right amount of it. I usually dislike egg dishes but this is one I’d eat.

Also because I am very layman and I can’t remember all the different types of seafood we were given, I’ll just briefly take you through what I enjoyed.

ABURI-ed stuff:

Lightly torched in front of you, retains the sweetness of the sashimi without an overpowering charred taste.

SASHIMI Stuff:

Since this¬†stuff¬†is fresh and good on its own, chef will “paint” it with a light coat of soy; sometimes using hints of different flavours like truffle or yuzu to enhance flavours

CHIRASHI stuff:

Some chirashi bowls are just not prepared with heart. I wouldn’t have known the difference until I visited Ryo. The chef here piles the bowl (albeit small bowl lah) with a generous amount of sashimi; AND!!!! if you order the uni set, he actually mixes the rice with uni. I can’t even look at the photo without drooling. I love uni.

THINGS TO NOTE:

  • The restaurant only seats 8 pax and only has 3 services at 6pm, 7.30pm and 9pm; so if you want a seat be sure to call in advance to book it.
  • Chef takes pride in his craft and will be quite adamant that you try certain things that you might typically not like (e.g. ginger / a hint of wasabi) – but it usually turns out alright. If not, at least you tried.
  • The neon sign up front also says it’s open 24hrs, but that’s a lie (for now).

  1. Haha every time I go I must try the squid which I don’t like… but convinced it’s different there (it is la, not bad). And I will always ask if the 24-hour will be a thing not, the chef will reply no manpower and try to offer me a job slicing ginger. Lol!!!
