DON DON DONKIs highly anticipated full-fledged sushi restaurant, SEN SEN Sushi, is finally open at JEM, and we’re here to tell you all about the restaurant: what’s good, is it worth a try and other unique things to know about the place!
SEN SEN Sushi Restaurant is DONKI’s first-ever high-speed conveyor belt sushi restaurant in Singapore; and while DONKI’s sushi concept itself isn’t that new, this is the first time they’re actually having a standalone restaurant dedicated entirely to just sushi.
Speedy sushi served on “trains”
SEN SEN Sushi Restaurant adopts a high-speed conveyor belt technology that serves your made-to-order sushi at “rocket speed”, Shinkansen train-style.
What makes SEN SEN’s sushi special is they use rice that’s freshly-milled in the restaurant itself and a special red vinegar to flavour the rice itself. The result is quality, fluffy rice that maintains its softness and freshness.
New & exclusive menu items
Aside from the various sushi offerings and sides that you can find at other SEN SEN concepts, there are also brand new restaurant-exclusive sushi items and dessert!
For sushi, you’ll find the new Oshi Sushi series, also known as pressed or box sushi. Each plate of Oshi Sushi ($3.50) has 2 pieces, or you can get the Oshi Sushi Set ($6.80) with a 4-piece assortment, including Salmon, Steamed Shrimp, Conger Eel and Pickled Mackerel.
There’s also a new dessert item: the Baked Sweet Potato with Vanilla Ice Cream ($5.80) that has a crisp crème brûlée top. Think DONKI’s iconic roasted potato, but taken up a notch with torched sugar and creamy ice cream—this dessert is definitely one for the sweet tooth.
Ice-cold draft sake on tap
To pair with your sushi, they even have a unique sake machine that serves up fresh draft sake from a tap!
Brought in from Nagano-japan Honshu, the draft sake (known as Sou Jyunmaiginjyo Nama Gensyu) is made from 100% rice. The sake is also only served cold, and what’s special about it is that it’s left unpasteurised unlike regular bottled sake, which makes it extra umami and lightly sparkling.
