You’ll be hard-pressed to find wallet-friendly fare in Singapore’s Central Business District. Fortunately for us, this year sees several new openings in the area, some of which boast relatively affordable prices.

There was the Wall Street-inspired restaurant Market Bistro, which serves customisable lunch sets and S$10 beers, and Sushi to Sumi, a standing sushi bar with affordably priced omakase.

Now, there is also the launch of Nori at Marina Bay Link Mall that opened in December last year. It dishes up loaded, temaki-style (hand-rolled) sushi from S$3.90! 

For those who think forking out S$3.90 for a serving of sushi is pricey, best believe that you’ll be getting every dollar’s worth at Nori. Each mound of sushi is heaped with a generous variety of toppings. 

The eatery also has a limited-time deal, where you’re entitled to a complimentary serving of sushi with every two pieces ordered.

Different temaki-style sushi options to choose from

While temaki sushi is typically served in a cone shape, the ones at Nori are folded and served taco-style. This way, each sushi has an even filling-to-rice — and also seaweed — ratio, which allows us to truly enjoy every ingredient in all its flavoursome glory

There is an extensive selection of sushi, segmented into four different categories — classic, signature, vegan, and premium. 

From the get-go, the eye-watering sushi toppings in the signature and premium sections immediately caught our eye.

We opted for the Crab Diablo (S$6.90), which we presume is Nori’s take on the local-favourite chilli crab flavour. It’s packed with a spicy sauce and juicy sliced tomatoes, alongside succulent bits of crab meat. The sweetness of the tomatoes complements the mild spicy notes, making it a vibrant dish.

The XO scallop (S$7.90) is another option from the premium sushi range. It’s chock-full of fresh, chubby scallops that are coated in an XO sauce. But while generous with the meat, this one was a little lacklustre for us as it lacked the rich, umami flavours we’ve come to expect from an XO-based sauce.

Perhaps you can give this a miss and go for Nori’s other premium flavour combinations instead, such as smoked salmon (S$5.90), ikura bomb (S$7.90), or crispy eel (S$6.90).

You can’t go wrong with the salmon aburi mentai (S$5.90), which touts chunks of flame-seared salmon drenched in a creamy mentaiko sauce and layered further with crunchy strips of cucumber underneath.

We enjoyed this one. The sweet-salty mentaiko sauce went very nicely with the fresh salmon slices. The cucumber lent a refreshing sprightliness to the sushi as well, so it’s easily one of our top sushi picks at Nori.

If you’re craving a more substantial bite, the tom yum tako (S$5.50) is a delectable sushi dish that had us devouring it in seconds. It reminds us of the beloved Japanese takoyaki snack, too — it came loaded with hearty bits of tako (octopus) drizzled in mayo. 

Out of all the sushi that we tried, this was definitely the most value for money, since the pieces of fresh octopus were huge! It’s also finished with ebiko roe for a subtle added sweetness.

We got the Nori fries (S$6) to share, which should comfortably feed up to three persons. The fries are dusted in an aromatic seaweed powder and remind us of the much-loved seaweed McShaker fries that you’d find at McDonald’s. 

But if you’re not up for fries, there are other sharing platters along the likes of oysters (S$4), crispy calamari (S$8), takoyaki (S$6), and even salad alternatives.

Limited-time S$3.50 coffee

Besides the buy-two-get-one-free sushi promotion, you can also enjoy Nori’s signature coffee for just S$3.50 (U.P. from S$4.50) with a choice of having it hot or iced.

The deal is available only in the morning from 10am to 11.30am and in the afternoon between 2pm to 5.30pm. Swing by to grab a quick pick-me-up before work, or during lunch hours! 

There is no specified end date for these two promotions, so we suggest heading down as soon as possible before they slip through your fingers!
