December Haiku

With December upon us and the past month of rainy days, Singapore had a few moments of cool weather.

The famous Japanese poet Basho wrote this haiku:

hatsu shigure saru mo komino wo hoshige nari
the first cold shower
even the monkey seems to want
a little coat of straw

The Fall of the Wall Promotion!

Berlin Wall

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)…


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)

Sushi Haikus 7, 8, 9, and 10

Just because I’m in the US doesn’t mean more sushi haikus aren’t going up on the hoardings!  Well, that is if the manager Coral is putting them up.  We had a temporary National Day sushi appreciation poster.

Pink marbled tuna
Sunshine orange ikura
Pearl white hamachi

Come, taste our sake
Shimmery pink salmon or
A glass of rice wine

At night I drink beer
Sake, shochu, yuzu too
And enjoy sushi

What else can be more
Elegantly delicious
Than sushi, my  friend

Sushi Haikus 1 and 2

Find zen on a plate
Right from the chef master's hands
All is good again

Office so busy
Lunch always in a hurry
Thank you for sushi
