Inariku is a humble home kitchen helmed by a stay-at-home mother, Marhamah Sapandi whose love for Japan started when she was a teenager after watching Japan Hour ☺️ Marhamah has trained at various culinary schools in Japan like the Tokyo Sushi Academy and Le Cordon Bleu Tokyo! She was also guided by other experienced Japanese chefs and culinary talents during her time in Japan so you're guaranteed top-notch quality Japanese food. What's more, she has also managed to source for halal and Muslim-friendly ingredients, including a non-alcoholic substitute for mirin in her cooking! You might have spotted Inariku at various events like Artbox and Twilight Fest.

Inariku serves an extensive variety of Japanese dishes and its menu changes weekly. One dish that's popular with customers is Salmon Aburi Mentai. Topped with savoury mentaiko (mayonnaise and fish roe), this sushi is grilled to smoky perfection ? This might be one of the most tempting sushi platters we've ever seen!

Inariku also sells Salmon Sushi Moriawase, which is an assorted sushi platter of all-things salmon. If that's still not enough salmon for you, their Salmon Mentai Don (rice) or Salmon Mentaiko Pasta will leave you thoroughly satisfied!

Looking for a sushi platter to share? You'll want to get one of their signature dishes - the Duo Inari Platter. Consisting of lobster salad inari and spicy chicken floss inari - this is truly a delicious combination of premium and standard toppings.
