Sushiro, located in Tiong Bahru Plaza, is Japan’s highest-earning conveyor belt restaurant, and the brand’s first outpost in Southeast Asia. The 162-seat space might look like any regular sushi joint, but it’s in the kitchen where things differ. Three sushi-making robots help create parcels of vinegared rice, with air pumped within each morsel to make it less dense. Plates that make its rounds on the conveyor belt are also fitted with a specialised chip; each plate can only travel 350m on the lane before it is removed to ensure freshness.
Ordering here feels familiar – grab what you want from the lower rotating belt while the top conveyor belt delivers food that you ordered straight to your table. Over 100 varieties of sushi and side dishes are available. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try the three best-selling dishes: tuna ($2.20), yellowtail ($3.20), and salmon roe ($3.20), while those feeling adventurous can try the roasted pork with green onion ($2.20) or the eel with cheese ($4.80).
To celebrate Sushiro's opening, look forward to its otoro sushi ($2.20), swordfish sushi ($2.20), ark shell sushi ($2.20), and uni sushi ($4.80) – available while stocks last.
