The latest Japanese food craze, Mosaic Sushi, has arrived in Singapore

At this day and age, nothing could be more innovative than an edible work of art. Together with the culinary skills of Kinsa Sushi's chefs and restaurant founder Shannon Wong, Kinsa Sushi has brought in the latest Japanese food craze — Mosaic Sushi— to our shores. We were there last year to try their tantalising salmon dishes, and it has been a really great journey with Kinsa thus far. Read till the end to find out what the craze is about.

Purple rice is a rare gem and I'm glad it's getting more popular in Singapore. A short grain variant of black rice, the purple rice is highly prized and was only used by royals in the past — it also has higher nutritional value as it is not as polished as the white rice we have. Thus, this rice serves as a great staple for people with diabetes.

Here's a quote from the Health Promotion Board website itself, Purple rice "contains similar amount of fibre but almost twice the iron and four times the zinc content of brown rice". Awesome yeah!

Salmon Mentai Maki — S$16.80

The flavours would progressively manoeuvre through your tastebuds as you transit from the sweet, mildly savoury flavour of the roe bursting into your mouth to the saltiness of the mentai salmon. As usual, I love this salmon dish!

Kagoshima A4 Wagyu Kamameshi — S$26.80

Kagoshima A4 Wagyu Kamameshi review singapore
This version of Wagyu Don offers a savoury option to their usual teriyaki-based wagyu don. The Wagyu Kamameshi finishes with a fuller-bodied roast— probably due to the fact that it uses premium purple rice. The dish is topped with medium seared Kagoshima A4 Wagyu with an onsen egg.

There is only one dish we can compare it against — and that is the sweet version of this. I personally prefer the sweeter version as it somehow worked really well — this lacked the "oomph" factor. It's probably because we're used to savoury beef steaks. Go for the sweet version of this if you want to surprise yourself.

This rendition to Japan's mosaic sushi #Kinsamosaic is valid only for a limited Christmas launch. From 1 Nov to 31 dec, the Kinsa Mosaic Xmas Set features the mosaic sushi with other hot favourites, such as lobster salad, soba tempura, soft shell crab, fried oyster, pumpkin croquette and century tofu. You end the meal with a sweet Mizayaki mochi.

 The nine pieces of sushi are neatly placed in a bento box. Each piece is delicately handmade, and thus this requires a lot of manpower.

The soba tempura is really interesting - nothing like what we've eaten before. Basically, it is deep-fried soba with tempura bits.

The dessert is served together with the Kinsa Mosaic sushi - and yes, these dainty desserts would make everyone at the table go 'ooh' and 'ahh'.
