Where to buy a nice big slab of sashimi salmon or swordfish?

Postby salmon_fish » Wed, 17 Dec 2003 1:06 am

where can i buy a nice big slab of sashimi salmon or swordfish - uncut for personal consumption? ( excluding japanese restaurants..)

i know of daimaru who used to sell them fresh, but don't seem to see any daimarus around now.

I'd go for the Isetan supermarkets myself (Shaw House & Taka), and would steer clear of anything in Cold Storage. Just because it's raw and sitting in a fridge doesn't mean it's suitable for consumption raw. The Japanese supermarkets will have ready-to-slice sashimi cuts that are guaranteed fresh and already deboned, but naturally you'll have to pay through the nose for the privilege.

I love sushi myself, but sometimes I can't help but wonder how on earth they manage to get it to my dinner table in a tropical climate like this, where everything else spoils in a matter of minutes... :shock:

You could try jason's at raffles city.

Should be over $15 for a slab....just avoid the $5 pieces which are in the freezer section, those can't be eaten raw, risking contamination.

The fresh ones would be available with the counter staff...other jap supermarts will have them...but do we hv any left? daimaru at liang court...is it still there?

Hi,

I saw a nice whole salmon at the supermarket at Singapura Plaza for about $14.95kilo. It looked fresh but be careful of precut pieces as I've heard tey use foof dye to make it look fresh.

Try any sushi counter in NTUC. They will sell u a slab if you ask them. Some even slice them and pack them in dry ice for you.

Don't mean to be a thread spoiler, but thought you should know that headlines appeared last year when the Environmental Working Group, a Washington, DC-based not-for-profit environmental research organization, released a report after purchasing farm-raised salmon fillets at supermarkets across the US and testing them for certain contaminants. The group found the fish tainted with chemicals called polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs. Widely used in the 1950s and 60s in electrical and heating equipment, paints, plastics, rubbers, dyes, and many other substances, PCBs were banned in 1977 because of concern over their threat to health. The US Environmental Protection Agency calls them a “probable human carcinogen.”

good sashimi

You can try this small jap restaurant at Ginza Plaza (think that's what it's called!)

You can buy and get them to slice and bring home, or you can sit and dine there too.

Not expensive.

I go to Song Fish Dealer on Jurong Fishery Port Road.

They are a wholesaler but if you go around the left of the warehouse, there is a small retail area. Limited hours so call or google to see when they are open. If you go in and ask, they will take a whole salmon and cut it up however you want it. I always take some steaks, some fillet, and some sashimi.

Also have bulk freezer stuff.

Great value.
