So you thought you’ve seen it all, from salted egg bubble tea to fried coffee cubes.
Reader Bao: Wait, when got fried coffee—
Meet the next creation that’ll make Gordon Ramsay mouth the f-word for the rest of his life: Sashimi Noodles Mukbang Set.
That won’t have caused any alarm until you realise that the sashimi isn’t the side dish, but the noodles.
The dish is the brainchild of Run Run Sushi, a food kiosk in ION Orchard selling fast takeaway sushi that opened last year. According to its very pinkish website, they sold their Sushi Handrolls before that at Holland Village.
The kiosk didn’t just sell the run-of-the-mill sushi, but super atas one as well, like a lobster roll sushi.
But you’re not here for their sushi.
Sashimi Noodles That Have Its Noodles Made from Salmon is a Real Thing in S’pore
So, what the heck are sashimi noodles?
Thankfully, Run Run Sushi has done my job by posing their own questions and answering them themselves, kind of like how our Reader Bao has often come in to interrupt our articles:
Here’s what they’ve written:

If you think about it, it’s just salmon being cut into noodles, but hey: salted egg bubble tea is just adding salted egg into bubble tea, too.
But if you intend to be a Zermatt Neo in ION Orchard, I’d have to break your heart: this is only available online.
It comes in three sizes: Beginner Set (for 2 pax) at $34.50, Intermediate Set (for 3 to 4 pax) at $52 and Expert Set (for 5 to 6 pax) at $69.
Islandwide delivery is only available for orders above $40, so you might as well just take the Intermediate Set even if you’re a lonely forever dude.
It’ll be served in ice pack, and it’ll come with the Salmon Sashimi Noodles, In-House Special Sauce and Wasabi.
You can order here.
