The Great Baan Ying Brunch

The Nemuro Saury Feast Festival

From now till 27 February 2019, the folks at Sushi Shiki Hamamaru and the Nemuro Council have prepared a feast with the island’s largest export and ever-popular Pacific sanma in celebration of Hokkaido‘s annual autumn harvest. From sushi to sashimi, traditional Japanese culinary styles feature the sanma in a broad variety of manners. If that isn’t enough to reel you in, this fatty fish is loaded in omega-3’s and enough fatty oils to enthral you both in contexts of textural enjoyment and health-related options.

Sushi Shiki Hamamaru can be located at Orchard Central, #B2-11/29/44/48, 181 Orchard Road, Singapore 238896, p.+ 65 6634 0211.  Open Mon-Fri 11am — 2pm, 5pm —11pm, Sat-Sun 11am-11pm.
