Maguroya – House of Tuna – great sushi at low prices in Singapore
What do you get when a highly reputed seafood dealer decides to open his own sushi stall in a local hawker centre? Quite simply, the best quality, affordable sushi in Singapore’s CBD. Until a few months ago, Alistair Douglas, an expert in sustainable seafood who actually did his PhD in the quality, cold-chain management and traceability of farmed Southern bluefin tuna from Australia to Japan, ran one of the country’s top seafood and gourmet produce importers. Today, though, instead of supplying gourmet ingredients to the city’s top restaurants–some of which would mark up his produce by an insane 800%–Alistair is dedicated to delivering top quality sashimi-grade product direct to consumers. And by cutting out the middle men, he’s able to sell his sushi at super affordable prices.
