I admit I’m addicted to the Singapore Seen section on Stomp. While they bill it as a lofty site for citizen journalism, it has turned into a portal showing the ugly side of us all living together on this tiny island.
Public transportation woes, maid troubles, anti-foreigner diatribes, aaaggghhh!
Is this country really debating whether an able-bodied person should let an elderly or pregnant commuter take the priority seat on public transportation? Isn’t the answer obviously “OF COURSE?”
The government has run campaigns to encourage kindness and graciousness. I’m not sure what the results have been, but it seems many folks are motivated to take action only if there is a concrete payoff.
So us here at Standing Sushi Bar are taking our sushi sensibilities and wading into the teeming, seething mass that is the Singapore public. Our goal? Encourage people to be kind – it will make Singapore more pleasant for all!
We’re sending our ninjas out across the streets, trains, and buses of Singapore. Armed with these kindness cards, if they see you doing something nice then you get free sushi! Give up your seat on the MRT, hold the elevator door open, pick up some litter… no act of kindness is too small.
At Standing Sushi Bar, it pays to be kind.

Election fever has gripped Singapore, and the candidates getting the most attention are Tin Pei Ling from the People’s Action Party and Nicole Seah from the National Solidarity Party.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I meet someone new, I wonder what they would be like if they were a sushi roll.
I gathered available information about the two candidates and then gave my interpretation to the sushi chefs for them to create an actual roll. Isn’t it convenient to own a Japanese restaurant?
Tin Pei Ling roll
Nicole Seah roll
If you want to find out how these rolls taste; they’re available from now through May 7 at Standing Sushi Bar 8QSAM for 10 SGD each!
COMMENT CONTEST – submit your interpretation for how the above sushi rolls are like their namesake or come up with your own description of a Tin Pei Ling / Nicole Seah sushi roll! Best comment (as judged by me) posted by May 7 wins a 25 SGD voucher to Standing Sushi Bar (be sure to leave your e-mail address for contact)

Marketing and promotion is an area that I haven’t spent much time on. Since the beginning of Standing Sushi Bar (a little over a year ago), I’ve been focused on daily operations and simply learning about the F&B industry. Having the first branch in Raffles Place meant that I didn’t have to do too much outreach – there are so many people in the area that promotions didn’t have to span far.
The 8QSAM branch is in a radically different situation. While I love the Bras Basah neighborhood (I’m a long-time resident), there are lots of people who have no idea this area exists… even though it’s just a couple blocks from City Hall MRT! For the past few years it seemed like a no-man’s land. While it was a central location there was nothing that drew a critical mass of people.
Earlier this year I noticed a lot more activity – the old Catholic High building underwent renovation and has become an arts & dance enclave, the Food for Thought café (hi neighbor!) opened up at 8QSAM, and Bras Basah MRT station began operating. CNNGO talks about the transformation of the area.
I feel SSB at 8Q has opened up as the neighborhood is on the cusp of becoming a destination location.
On the cusp, full of potential, etc. – all great… but potential and the future do not count for nuts when it comes to the present.
Standing Sushi Bar also opened (2 weeks ago) at Marina Bay Link Mall. Great location, again full of potential. When the office towers are complete and everyone has moved in, there are supposed to be more workers there than Suntec City. That’s a huge, captive lunch crowd waiting to be fed good sushi!
But… people are just beginning to move into Marina Bay Financial Centre. Essentially it’s a bunch of empty futuristic-looking glass skyscrapers waiting for the thrum of human activity to commence.
Now that these branches are open, it’s time to shift gears and think about how to spread the word of Standing Sushi Bar. Promote! Promote! Promote! I have to get into that mindset.

I feel like a bad parent. With the opening of Standing Sushi Bar at 8 Queen Street and Marina Bay Link Mall, I can hear our OUB Centre (now christened One Raffles Place) branch saying, “Hey! Over here! I miss you!”
To show a little love for the original location, we’re having a 1 for 1 salmon promotion on Saturdays.
1 for 1 on the following salmon items:
- Salmon nigiri / salmon belly nigiri
- Salmon maki / salmon belly maki
- Salmon temaki / salmon belly temaki
- Salmon donburi / salmon belly donburi
- Salmon skin donburi
Standing Sushi Bar
1 Raffles Place
B2-02B One Raffles Place
Ph: +65 6533 7078
Open Mon – Fri 11:30 AM – 9:00 PM, Saturday 11:30 AM – 4:00 PM
If this goes well then I’ll see if we can do it at the other branches too. Everyone loves salmon, after all!

Finally! Standing Sushi Bar at 8QSAM is opening this Monday, September 27. It’s a much bigger space than the existing One Raffles Place branch and with that additional space we have put in a full sake bar, a robatayaki counter, sushi bar, and a large kitchen. That means an expanded menu!
To celebrate, we’re kicking off a free flow happy hour! From 5pm – 7pm Monday through Friday, enjoy free flow of Asahi beer for 15 SGD. Come check out our new digs and celebrate with a mug or two or ten!
Outside of happy hour, we’ll have a plethora of lunch sets including bentos, donburis, soba, and sushi! For students with school IDs, we have special sets as well at student-friendly pricing!
Standing Sushi Bar 8QSAM details:
8 Queen Street
11:00 AM – 10:30 PM daily
+65 6333 1335
Located just outside of the Bras Basah MRT Queen Street entrance. Nearest parking at Hotel Royal or the SMU Administrative building.
Thanks for all the support that has helped make this second branch a reality!
