Sushi Tei, Bedok Point

CC and I had attended a client meeting in the far east, so we made a pitstop after the meeting for an early lunch. He lives in the east so he recommended Bedok Point, a new-ish, small-ish shopping mall next to Bedok MRT station filled with eateries. With air-conditioning. With the weather getting hotter as we roll out of the monsoon season, air-conditioning has become a pre-requisite for dining out.

One thing about Bedok Point though, parking's awful. There's only 1 basement for parking, so it gets real jammed up real fast during peak hours. If you're thinking of dining there, go during the off-peak dining time, or park at the multi-storey carparks at the HDB estates nearby.

We were both looking to get something healthy so we opted for Sushi Tei. Affordably good mid-range Japanese food that's definitely maximum bang-for-your-buck.

The Wakame Salad ($7), crisp lettuce interspersed with purple cabbage and carrot strips, was topped with a mess of seaweed tendrils. The bright green seaweed lent a subtly sweet flavour, seasoned with sesame seeds and a piquant wafu dressing. I've always thought wakame was like a healthy version of Twizzlers, fun and chewy.

The Nameko Misoshiru ($6), robust miso soup grounded in earthy juicy mushroomy goodness, was really nice. Simple, homely and wholesome. A plus point was that Sushi Tei was really generous with their mushrooms. Every spoonful yielded this many mushrooms!

The Salmon Shio ($10), grilled salmon that was less than swimmingly fresh, simply seasoned with salt was a smidge salty. At least it helped (somewhat) cover up the day-old fish.

Because a plate of greens wasn't enough fibre, we also ordered the Yasai Itame ($6), pan-fried mixed vegetables with garlic and soy. This was lightly fried so the vegetables were still crunchy.

The Fried Garlic Rice ($8.50) with plenty of chicken chunks, was fragrant and well flavoured.
