Mackerel, mackerel and nothing but the mackerel
Saba means mackerel, and Sabar is a mackerel bar that takes mackerel seriously.
For the love of saba
Saba or Mackerel has been used in Japanese cuisine in Singapore for decades, and the name “Sabar” would automatically suggest that their menu has something to do with mackerel. But that’s an understatement – Sabar’s dedication is almost feverish, with the fish starring in every dish they serve, as well as the design and decor of the outlet.
Sabar originally started as a crowdfunding project. The founder has his ambitions to make the word “saba” an universal term like geisha, sushi or karaoke. Quite ambitious, but one taste of their food and you’ll understand they are on their way.
Sabar is from Osaka, but only uses mackerel caught off Japan's North Pacific Coast

Here’s something interesting to look out for when you visit Sabar – Saba symbolism abounds in their restaurant, and the number 38 appears everywhere. “38” sounds like ‘Saba’ in Japanese. Lunchtime runs from 11:38AM to 14:38PM. They love mackerel, and they show their love by using it playfully all over their outlet’s decor.
Sabar only uses top quality mackerel from North Pacific Coast Japan to make their various saba-based dishes. You’ll be hard-pressed to make up your mind with their huge menu, but now that they’re here to stay in Japan Food Town, you can always come back for more!
We are excited to share our crazy love for mackerel with all our new customers
