Teppei Japanese Restaurant @ Orchid Hotel

All the wonderful food above for only $88 – wagyu, toro and uni included! No wonder reservation at Teppei is still a must after 5 strong years of operation. With 2 seatings available at 6.30pm or 8.30pm, a batch of diners go in together and everyone will start their meal at the same time! That’s…

Nesuto @ Tras Street

The Japanese-inspired cake selection here is pretty awesome, ranging from small exquisite cakes with many components within, to sliced cakes. They do not come cheap, but if you appreciate cakes, I know you’ll enjoy this. The cafe recommends tea-pairing with their cakes – a great combination for a nice afternoon tea! Miss Isphan ($10) – This…

Kabuke Sake Bar @ Telok Ayer

Hello world! It’s been almost a year since I’ve last blogged or even went onto Foodiepink. Really happy to be back again with a refreshed Foodiepink – in terms of the look of my homepage and blog posts. Rather than scrolling through singular images, I personally thought it would be great to group the photos…

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ Serangoon Gardens

Nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Serangoon Gardens, Hajime is slowly garnering its own base of loyal customers since it opened its doors 6 months ago. Far from a run-of-the-mill neighbourhood Japanese bistro, Hajime is helmed by Chef Tan-San, the first Tonkatsu chef in Singapore! You may not know, but Chef Tan was hand-picked 25 years…

Cooking with Gourmet Greens @ ToTT

Two weeks ago, I attended a culinary class hosted by FIJI Water featuring two vegetable-centric dishes! You may be wondering, what’s FIJI Water got to do with cooking? Well, do you know that FIJI Water is the preferred water of choice for top chefs, restaurants and hotels around the world? Yes, it is incorporated within…

The HungryGoWhere Awards Season Food Trail

The HungryGoWhere Awards Season is back! Remember the inaugural ‘100% people’s choice’ food and beverage awards last year? We saw Chye Seng Huat Hardware being voted as “Best Café for Coffee” and Wild Rocket for “Best Modern Singaporean Restaurant”. This year, we want to gather all foodies again to celebrate our hawker, restaurants, cafés and…

Hokkaido Izakaya @ Tanjong Pagar

Aimed to bring the best of Hokkaido to Singapore, Hokkaido Izakaya has big shoes to fill with so many up and coming Japanese restaurants in Singapore. But, when you see Japanese sararimen filling up the cosy restaurant, you know you’re at the right Izakaya. Certified by the Hokkaido City Council to promote Hokkaido produce in Singapore, Hokkaido…

Takujo Fine Dining @ Emporium Shokuhin, Marina Square

Ever since Emporium Shokuhin opened, I’ve been frequenting the array of restaurants it offers (read reviews of Umi+Vino & Senmi Sushi). Takujo is one of the higher-end restaurants over here, providing high-quality cuts of meat and seafood, as well as a more exclusive, private environment as compared to its counterparts. At the start of the…

Buffet: Colony @ The Ritz-Carlton Singapore

One of the best new openings for 2015 is definitely Colony, Ritz-Carlton’s new buffet restaurant which replaced Greenhouse. The entire concept is so refreshing following its renovation – a huge step away from the original buffet powerhouse, bringing its game a notch up.  The theme surrounding the restaurant depicts the sea voyage of the British…

Kakure Sake Bar @ Chateau TCC, Scotts Road

A first of its kind (at least to my knowledge), this boutique sake bar, Kakure, is an extension of omakase powerhouse, Ki-­sho. This 16-seater space provides an intimate first-­hand look into the hidden world of sake – something you can’t quite get yet in Singapore. Many of us would order sake to go with a Japanese…

Senmi Sushi Bar @ Emporium Shokuhin, Marina Square

As mentioned in my previous post on Umi + Vino, I’m a huge fan of Emporium Shokuhin – the latest Japanese megamarket with a total of 7 restaurant concepts and this is my 2nd post of the series! I’ll be introducing the Senmi Sushi Bar, located within the market itself. It’s a pretty huge space, complete…

Umi + Vino @ Emporium Shokushin, Marina Square

Emporium Shokuhin at Marina Square opened with much fanfare as it is the largest Japanese supermarket in Singapore yet, with live seafood and premium meat cuts available for purchase. There are 7 Japanese dining concepts under its wing, specialising in namely sushi, ramen & gyoza, shabu-shabu, cold seafood and a fine-dining restaurant. I’ve tried 3…

Karafuru Dessert @ Jalan Klapa

I’ve been eyeing this place ever since the photos of their pretty desserts surfaced on Instagram. You know, with such highly Instagram-worthy plated desserts (and Nipon-themed too), Singaporeans literally go ga-ga. Coupled with positive reviews, I was very much looking forward to our first meet. Karafuru had a very inviting interior (sorry no shots, as my…

Sumiya Japanese Restaurant @ Suntec City [Lunch + Dinner Menu]

Sumiya opens at Suntec City after a very successful first outlet at Orchard Central! Following a revamp of Suntec City, it sits between Kushinbo and a 7-concept Japanese eatery, Eat at Seven. The branch here exudes a different ambience as compared to the one at Orchard Central, as it takes on a modern interpretation of retro Japan –…

Kanda Wadatsumi Japanese Dining @ Tras Street

Kanda Wadatsumi is right next to the gym that I go to so it’s been on my to-try list for the longest time. The concept of this restaurant is based on a popular Japanese restaurant in Tokyo center. Strongly backed by Zengyoren Japan Fisheries Association, a representative of all coastal fishermen in Japan, you can be sure that…

Review of 3 Japanese Concept Restaurants: Eat At Seven @ Suntec City

Eat At Seven is a bold and brand new concept at Suntec City, backed by global partners and renowned chefs. Essentially, you’ll find a total of 7 concept restaurants hailing from Japan under one roof. From a specialised sushi restaurant to a cosy Japanese-themed café, one visit here is definitely not enough. In fact, ANA,…

FUKU Fine Fugu Kaiseki Restaurant @ Mohamed Sultan Road

The first Japanese restaurant to serve Fugu or pufferfish, has finally arrived at our shores – also the first in Asia outside of Japan! #livingontheedge There are over 100 pufferfish species but only 20 are edible. Hence, only the highest of quality fugu is served here in FUKU Restaurant, which is also flown in twice a week…

Sankai Japanese Restaurant @ Liang Seah Street

After a short hiatus from the dizzying celebrations of CNY, I’m back! Not too sure if you guys know about this place yet, but Sankai Restaurant serves up really affordable Japanese food for dinner. If you see those huge posters, up to 70% worth of discounts are thrown in for the dinner menu. Read on…

[Limited Edition Premium Tonkotsu Ramen] Chabuton @ Somerset 313

Chabuton opened with much fanfare last year when it first arrived in Singapore. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s helmed by Chef Yasuji, the first-ever ramen chef to receive a Michelin Star! He was also crowned the “Best Ramen Chef” by TV Champion. Yay to more affordable Michelin-star options in this tiny red dot!…

Tatsu Teppanyaki @ Chijmes

Even though Tatsu has been around for more than a decade, I’ve only tried it when it joined the revamp at Chijmes. The restaurant is tiny but polished, with a sushi counter right at the front and the teppanyaki counter hidden behind. Less than 20-seater, the teppanyaki counter was crowded and advanced booking is advised. There were 2…
