Megumi Japanese Restaurant

My friend L who used to live in the Siglap area, pointed out Megumi to me one evening when we were trekking to Udders for ice-cream, and said "it's very good". And so Megumi came to mind when E asked where I wanted to eat, since our jaunts are now confined (for the moment) to places within a 15 min drive of my parents' place, since I don't fancy spending the same amount of time travelling as I do eating.

We started off with this whole fish sashimi (SGD35) of what the waiter said was "gurukin" but I could have remembered wrongly. The sashimi was fresh and sweet, and complemented well by the slightly sourish dipping sauce. After we had finished with the fish, the bones were taken away and deep-fried with batter to make a crunchily good snack.

For my main, I chose the salmon ikura don, which was the special of the day (SGD18) since I was hankering for some briny salmon roe :-) This came with thickly-sliced portions of salmon which were decently fresh although the sushi rice could have been better seasoned. E went for one of their bento sets (SGD25) which was fairly good, we liked that the sushi came with good sized portions of fish overhanging the rice (and not the other way round).


Megumi is a homely place, filled with Siglap locals, serving up a wide range of offerings. While the quality is not quite comparable to top-notch Japanese restaurants like Tatsuya and Aoki, it's good enough for me to go back again.
