Group deals seems like a huge success now! You keep seeing the deals coming in from the various websites. Three companies that currently offer things I like are http://hungrydeals.sg/, http://www.groupon.sg/ and http://superdeals.insing.com/. They somehow tempt you that you just want to click on the deals.
One of my very first deal was the one by http://hungrydeals.sg/
It was a 50% off Japanese Hoppy + Salmon Nigiri Set at Standing Sushi Bar at only $10 (worth $20).
The Salmon Nigiri was delicious as expected. I always like the sashimi from Standing Sushi Bar. They have always been fresh and so far not disappointed me. We bought two sets of the deal, so we had 8 pieces of salmon in total.
The Hoppy! When we bought the deal, I had no idea what Hoppy was!
I realised what it was after talking to a member of staff. Hoppy is actually a non alcoholic beer flavoured drink (0.8 percent alcohol is considered non alcoholic)!
It is usually mixed with shochu to up the alcohol content.
Somehow the mix goes well with me! (we looked at the menu and this drink usually costs $12, so our $10 was so worth it!)
Momo was hooked on it! I don't usually like alcoholic drinks did find it quite nice!
Since we were there, we felt like eating more. We ordered the Sushi Take. $25
It came with 7 assorted nigiri, 2 pieces of maki, miso soup and the salad shown below.
Feeling a bit more gluttony that usual, we asked them for some recommendation. We were told the Aji Shio ($28) has been popular with people who love fish. Oh yes, they were right.
Surprisingly the 'gut' part of the fish did not taste fishy. I like fish so I ate up every trace of fish flesh on it. The lady who took away the plate commented that the fish was so 'cleaned up'! I cleaned up even the head part. :-)
We decided to try out other stuff here. The only non fish we had.
The grill wagyu beef was nice and tender. Yes, it's delicious wagyu! ($35)
The meal might be a bit pricey, but it was because we ordered stuff that we liked. We probably over ordered because we were so full after that.
It also did not hurt when we asked which credit card had discounts.
We paid using "SCB" (I realise I have to use acronyms nowadays so that people won't think it is sponsored by them, you know which card right?) and got 15% off! Total bill was $84.85
