Dashi is the foundation of Japanese cuisine and is prepared from an amalgamation of two ingredients: kombu and dried bonito flakes. The most popular type of Dashi is prepared from Katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes). Katsuobushi is usually produced by simmering, smoking and drying for a year.

At MAI by Dashi Master Marusaya, they take pride in Katsuobushi which takes two years to process.

This tedious process has enabled them to produce delectable, nutritious and healthy Katsuobushi which abounds with umami flavours.

Their dashi is 100% natural and does not contain MSG or other artificial seasoning.

MAI by Marusaya Dashi Master is a 38-seater restaurant with a sushi bar and two small private rooms. It is ideally located at 46 Bukit Pasoh Road Singapore 089858.

The restaurant is open from 12pm to 2.30pm (last order 2pm) for lunch and from 6pm to 11pm (last order 10pm) for dinner on Mondays to Saturdays.
