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…

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.

Suju Japanese Restaurant @ Mandarin Gallery

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel Singapore

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant has been around for as long as I could remember. I was too excited to start attacking the food that I’ve missed out on taking photos of the environment. Located within Hotel Intercontinental, there is a light-well in the middle of the restaurant, with some influence of colonial times in its interior-architectural…

Fukuichi Japanese Restaurant @ Triple One Somerset

I’ve heard so much about Fukuichi – especially the freshness in ingredients used and affordability! In my books, those two elements do not go that well together, if you know what I mean. Fukuichi has their fish and seasonal seafood specially air-flown straight from Shizuoka by their partner in Japan, Fukuichi GyoGyo, which has been engaged in fishing…

Oceans of Seafood @ PasarBella, The Grandstand

I found a real gem at the back of PasarBella where the freshest seafood are found! If you haven’t heard, PasarBella is a farmer’s market at The Grandstand, occupying a huge corner at the back of the main building, beside Giant supermarket. Upon entry, it feels as though you’ve been transported to a London weekend market. The vicinity has…

Tanuki Raw @ Orchard Central

My expectation forTanuki Raw was exceptionally high after I saw a really long queue snaking towards the escalator on a weekday night. I vouched to come back here again soon but to my surprise, when I was there on a Saturday afternoon, there wasn’t a single soul [excluding staff] at nearly 1. That should have been…

Kilo at Pact @ Orchard Central

Orchard Central has many well-hidden gems that require certain amount of sheer luck to uncover. Located within a retail shop is Kilo at Pact that serves fusion food.  Concrete bar tables with wooden chairs and a centerpiece of cacti – elements of nature blended with urban ones. The right picture shows the logo of Kilo…

Akashi Sushi @ Vivocity

Akashi Sushi currently has 3 branches – Tanglin, Paragon and the latest addition at Vivocity. Queues can get pretty long during dinner time, so I would recommend going early, or make a reservation beforehand! iPads used as menus (only at Vivo)! I feel that although the younger generations will use this technology with ease, older…

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar @ Wisma Food Republic

SHIOK!!! Maki they call this. This sushi roll has been plastered all over Instagram accounts, Facebook accounts etc. and I just had to go down to Wisma myself to try it. Situated beside Din Tai Fung, and sharing the vicinity with Food Republic is Koh Grill & Sushi Bar. It’s almost a restaurant by itself,…

Aoki: Omakase @ Shaw Centre

Aoki is a Japanese restaurant under the Les Amis group, which I think speaks a lot of its quality and service. During lunch, Aoki serves bentos in very pretty lacquer boxes. This time, I picked Omakase. In other words, I’m letting the chef decide the dishes he wants to serve me. Pictured above is their…

Shinshu Food @ Cuppage Plaza

Cuppage Plaza has many many Japanese restaurants, most of which have no menus. My friends and I decided to play it safe and chose one with menu and crowd. Unfortunately, the WHOLE menu was in Japanese and we could not comprehend the very extensive menu that was offered (they had a full page of side…
