|Sachi opens its doors to hungry clients craving for authentic Japanese and Singaporean dishes|
Food is happiness ❤️...
Welcome to Sachi, the top-gun Japanese restaurant that’s been hiding in plain sight
Admittedly, when this posh Japanese restaurant first opened a couple of years back, we dismissed it as a sushi place for the elite--big flavors and easy-to-understand hand rolls that still taste good even for take away. But if it was once true, now it ain't necessarily so. There's more going on here than first meets the chopstick. Chef Jun and his kitchen staff now commands the most impressive sushi counter in Araneta Center. The only challenge for diners is what exactly they would order.
Find comfort in sushi, sashimi, and other authentic Japanese meals and dishes because food will never ever break your heart. This is what I've recently discovered in the heart of Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City. Welcome to Sachi (which means happiness and good luck), one of the must-visit restaurants within the Araneta Coliseum Circle.
I'd have to say that Sachi surprised me in great way. Why? Can you imagine finding authentic Japanese and Singaporean dishes under one roof? Yes, that is true. You're reading it right. For Sachi is also owned by the same management as Rasa Singapura. Rasa Singapura used to be a restaurant in the same area but it had to give way to some renovations. Hence, they thought of serving them along with Japanese foods at Sachi. Makes sense to me since both cuisines actually makes my tummy and heart truly happy.
They have nice interiors. Very cozy.
The restaurant is pretty good in size with really nice interiors that gives off a cozy ambiance. They even have a closed section for formal meetings and other large group gatherings. The kitchen is pretty open, so you can actually see how your meals are prepared by the chefs. Be it as simple as an order of sashimi, sushi or maki, or as yakisoba etc. Sachi is decorated in an understated and classy (dark woods and deep colors) that makes me feel right at home.

I took a quick skim through their menu and everything was filling and looked quite good. I started at salads. They were small plates that are good as appetizers to start off one's meal. I looked at the Alaskan sushi rolls and took a bite. Hmm...It's nice to know it's not the kind of sad-dry rice and of so-so kinds I usually encounter with sushi rolls. You could really taste the freshness of the salmon they used on the Alaskan salmon sushi roll. I did get horenso gomae and it was delicious. I got a good helping and really enjoyed it.

In the years since Sachi has opened, it turns out, it had a desire to build a restaurant that celebrated the rich Japanese cuisine. Sachi became an establishment that essentially serves the freshest and mouth-watering Japanese foods.
