Arul's Flight Of Fancy
For someone who loves to explore food from around the world, Arul Inthirarajah picked on a popular but demanding cuisine to try his hand at for his first food and beverage venture.
Sushi Airways, which occupies an upper floor in a touristy area of Kampong Glam, in Singapore, has all the trappings of an unexpected adventure.
By dark, the heritage area comes to life, with a sensorial gush of neon colours, heady aromas and vociferous waiters cascading into a melange of Lebanese, Vietnamese, Malay, Indonesian and Western cuisines to tempt the hungry and the tourists.
Sushi Airways’ bright red sign at 20A Baghdad Street leads the intrepid diner up a steep flight of stairs and into a small, bright restaurant dominated by windows.
Monitors on the walls screen views from the cockpit of a DC-3 in flight. Japanese decorations dot the tables and countertops.
Arul designed the look of the restaurant and personally sourced for the fixtures, fittings and small decorations that add character to the place.
