SUSHI BURRITO EXPRESS
Sushi Burrito, which has an outlet in 100AM mall in Tanjong Pagar, opened an express outlet for office workers in Raffles Place last Friday.
It serves giant sushi rolls (about $10 to $13 for a full roll and $5 to $7 for half a roll), filled with pickles, vegetables and meat or fish, drizzled with housemade sauces such as wafu and yuzu. The rolls are wrapped in seaweed and contain a thin layer of sushi rice. Vegetarian options are available.

The grand 89-seat hotel bar, which opened last Thursday, is a throwback to late 19th century glamour. Manhattan features a rick house which has more than 100 American oak barrels to store and age tipples.
Besides a wide array of alcohol, the bar also features gourmet bar bites by chef Nicholas Trosien, who used to work at Graze at Four Seasons Hotel Palm Beach in Florida.
Cocktails are priced from $18 to $24 and bespoke cocktails cost about $25. Bar bites cost from $14 to $20.
