I HELD OUT FOR YOU VEGEMITE, AND YOU BROKE MY HEART.
No one else needs to know the details. But seriously, I had high hopes.
Erin (you may have seen her manning the register) has been in Denmark the past couple of weeks and has been sending back stories of various sushi places she has come across.
Sitting here at my desk with whiskey in hand, shaking it and listening to the ice cubes crackle and ding against the side of the glass… I stare at the pile of paperwork I need to clear.
Since it’s late at night I might as well drink to the songs of Bob Dylan.
It’s a nightly ritual (the paperwork, not Dylan). Come home and flip through the invoices of the day. This supplier brought this fish, another supplier brought us some beer, my favorite supplier restocked our sake. GST, PTE, CPF, what other 3 letter acronyms do I need to learn?
Are we low on ginger? Are we out of yuzu ice cream? Did we end up with an extra 2 kg of salmon? A thorough inventory is an ideal… at a sushi bar inventory is changing on an hourly basis. Typhoon in Japan? Goodbye to next week’s cargo delivery.
And the government departments that send me mail… NEA, MOM, IRAS, CPF are but a few. Every time I get a letter from them I fear it’s because I’ve submitted something incorrectly.
It’s no wonder I drink before starting this.
The Fall of the Wall
Promotion! Three days only!
Berlin Wall Sushi!
In 1989 the Berlin Wall came tumbling down. It was a spirited victory for freedom and gave hope for a better tomorrow.
In 2009 Standing Sushi Bar’s wall was knocked to the ground, leading to a one day closure and the sadness of great sashimi being destroyed.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reconstruction of Standing Sushi Bar’s wall, we are introducing (for 3 days only)…
THE BERLIN WALL ROLL
Come enjoy a sushi roll made with bratwurst, rice, lettuce, and sesame mustard! 9.80 SGD. Available November 12 – 14.
While you’re here, why not drink a little beer and sake while celebrating the triumph of freedom and the fall of Communism?
WE ARE OPEN AGAIN! (November 12)
Standing Sushi Bar
Is closed today
Due to our neighbors
Being too carefree with
And knocking holes in our Wall
It’s also Sushi Day in Japan
We’ll take a break from the normal sushi / restaurant inspired posts.
I feel compelled to share this technique for eating chicken wings. It’s amazing! Am tempted to order a ton of wings right now for practice.
Delicious, smoky bbq wings… wouldn’t that be perfect for a Sunday?
