Itacho Sushi Takeaway: 1st takeout kiosk with customisable creative sushi sets from $0.50 a piece, donburi, sashimi, dessert & drinks

Itacho Sushi has various outlets around our island but even though Bishan is just 1 train stop away from where I live, I wasn’t even aware that their one and only Itacho Sushi Takeaway stall has been hiding right under my nose all this while, located just outside Bishan MRT station exit C .

Situated between 7-Eleven and the MRT ticket office, Itacho Sushi Takeaway may go unnoticed, especially if you’re heading towards Junction 8 mall immediately after exiting the train station.

Don’t be deceived by its small space, it’s a one-stop takeout spot which literally has everything under the sun… yes, I mean it, EVERYTHING!

What they have at Itacho Sushi Takeaway

You may have visited numerous takeout spots in search of your sushi fix, including supermarkets, but there’s one issue. The pre-packed sushi sets may not always include all your favourites in one box— sounds familiar?

What I tried at Itacho Sushi Takeaway

My colleague, Rachel and I went on a sushi scavenger hunt, handpicking an assortment of sushi rolls, stuffed inari and tamago, and voila! The staff bundled them up in a box just for us; our own quirky, personalised platter— how rad is that?

The total damage for our platter consisting of 8 sushi and 2 tamago was S$19.20.

We kicked things off with the Tamago w/ Spicy Sauce (S$2.50) and Tamago w/ Mentaiko Sauce (S$2.50). The first one brought tangy vibes with a spicy punch, dancing perfectly with the sweet and fluffy egg. Meanwhile, the Tamago w/ Mentaiko was like a umami bomb with a hint of smokiness.

Next, we tried the Jelly Fish w/Inari Sushi (S$2) which had strips of crunchy seasoned jellyfish that we couldn’t get enough of. It was paired with bits of crunchy Japanese cucumber, dressed with sesame seeds and fine slivers of chilli. It was not only a feast for the eyes, but boy, did it deliver in the flavour department!

The Seasonal Octopus w/Chuka Wakame & Inari Sushi (S$2.50) had toothsome bits of marinated octopus paired with the oceanic essence of seaweed; a perfect combo.

itacho sushi takeaway - scallop sushi

As a scallop lover, the Boiled Scallop w/ Mentaiko Box Sushi (S$1) managed to hit the sweet spot with perfectly juicy scallops, topped with creamy mentaiko and various textures emanating from the cucumber, tamago and crab stick from the sushi roll.

The Kohada w/ Spicy Salmon Roll (S$2) might seem like a fishy daredevil with its skin intact, ready to scare off taste buds. But surprise, surprise! No fishy business here. It’s a match made in sushi heaven with the spicy salmon filling.

To avoid disappointment, the whole Japanese Jack Mackerel (S$13.80), specially air-flown from Japan, needs to be pre-ordered via the Itacho Sushi Takeaway website (scan QR code or click order now). The flesh was firm and fresh and had a natural sweetness , and one more thing, it’s 20% off compared to their restaurant prices.
