Attended an Omakase dinner one of the evenings with a bunch of friends at this newly opened Japanese restaurant located right smack where all the action is, Club Street. Head Chef Ron Leo hosted us to a wonderful meal of yummilicious Japanese cuisine and sake which left us filled to the brim! Check out the pics below of what we had!
Firing up the Joshu wagyu!!!
Served with special sauce!
Chef showed us the way to eat uni…
Pop into your mouth!
Chawanmushi with black truffle and uni… Damn shiok this one.
Taste: Hands down one of the best tasting Japanese cuisine places in Singapore. Freshness accompanied by awesome service!
Ambience: We were there before their opening hence I believe the overall feel wasn’t completed then.
Service: Plain awesome. Chef Ron was humorous and staff we super friendly.
Price: $100 onwards (Depends on your budget but chef is very generous!)
RTE: Definitely!! When I feel rich! 😉
Location: 82 Club Street, Singapore 069450. Tel: 62220235 (Call to reserve with a budget and number of pax ready!)
Recently I was invited to this restaurant for a media tasting and was a surprising gem on Bukit Timah indeed. Torikin is established in Singapore in November 2014 as a casual dining restaurant serving up collagen-enriched chicken hotpots to both locals as well as Japanese expatriates.
Torikin is part of a chain of restaurants by the Ishida Kikaku Group, originating from Fukuoka in Kyushu, Japan. It is the first overseas venture by the Group and embodies its founder, Mr Kyota Ishida’s philosophy of allowing all customers to discover the authentic taste of Kyushu, without compromising on quality. Check out the pics with comments below:
Taste: Everything taste really good. Love the way they use natural ingredients to bring out the flavours in the food.
I’m embarking to start writing about some of the good foods that I have tried in my recent Japan trip. As much as I wanna write some of them, they are located in alleys and do not have English names. Really irritating as I can’t share some of the awesome food I’ve tried. Maybe I should just put up the pics and maybe you guys can just use the address on the receipts to find the places? Let me know if it works for you guys!
Anyways, this Kaitenzushi Nemurihanamaru is a nice sushi conveyor belt place which I came across while walking around the Kitte Mall, just beside the Tokyo Station. The mall itself was a very interesting triangular layout and the shops there are pretty interesting as well, especially the handcrafted ones. Now I’m truly missing the place, so rich in culture, so well mannered people, love the winters, awesome food. Sigh… shall plan another trip this year! Well enough said, let my pics do the talking.
Taste: Freshness beyond imagination. Need I say more?
Service: Tip top!
Ambience: Nice and cosy.
Price: Around $90 for all that. Cheaper than Singapore I believe!
There are so many new restaurants and cafes that have been springing up from every corner in Singapore and to be honest I dunno this restaurant chain at all. Very famous in Japan, so I should think they should be good here too? I came to know about this place only after my 3 other girlfriends decided to meet for dinner here one of the movie nights. Read on for my story and reviews.
Taste: Overall ok only. Dunno what’s the hype all about. Coffee is not bad, beans can tell it’s very dark roasted.
Portion: Above average.
Service: Many peeps complaint about this saying how sucky their service is. Ours was pretty ok.
Ambience: Ok, not very comfy.
Price: About $30 per pax.
RTE: I would like to try the Tomato Cream Omu Rice with Shrimp and Mozarella. Other than that, really nothing special.
