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…

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…

白木屋 Shirokiya Japanese Healthy Dining Restaurant @ Cuppage Terrace

Whenever I hear the words “hotpot” and “collagen”, my interest piques, following my memorable experience of Bijin Nabe. Similarly, Shirokiya created their own signature hotpot that utilises collagen for its soup base and I was very eager to try it! Located at Cuppage Terrace, the vicinity is popular with Japanese who visit to find food close…

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…

Tatsuya Japanese Restaurant @ Goodwood Park Hotel

I was lucky that I managed to get a table without any reservation on a Sunday afternoon. However, I was offered al-fresco seating as the very narrow sushi bar was full. Hence, no photos of the restaurant itself! If you haven’t heard, Tatsuya boasts an excellent reputation in Japanese food. All ingredients are freshly imported from Tsukiji and…

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…

Japanese Dining SUN @ Chjimes

SUN is a Japanese restaurant that never fails. Under the same group is Sun with Moon at Wheelock Place, but I’m more fond of this one in Chjimes. In a blink of an eye, this outlet is already celebrating its 8th anniversary and as a gesture of goodwill, diners are rewarded with dining vouchers for their…

Buffet: Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel

Pan Pacific Hotel has been given a new facelift this year. The pavillion structures at the lobby with surrounding water bodies creates a contemporary and funky vibe. I am very excited to share with you the hotel’s buffet restaurant called Edge, which has a very apt tagline: Food Theatre. Edge takes up a massive floorspace on Level…

Sunday Brunch Buffet: Forest @ Equarius Hotel

Forest is a Chinese restaurant helmed by the higly-acclaimed Chef Sam Leong, located within the new Equarius Hotel, part of Resorts World Sentosa. On Sundays, Forest serves Sunday Brunch Buffet at $58 per adult and $28 per child below the age of 12, inclusive of fruit juices.  Lobby of the Equarius Hotel. Entrance to Forest….

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…

Kuriya Dining @ Great World City

All these years, Kuriya has remained as one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in Singapore, and I feel that I just have to share this gem on my blog. Kuriya Dining is best known for their Kuriya Lunch Course which features the freshest, seasonal ingredients of the month (yep, menu is changed monthly). At $45/person,…

Omakase: Sushi Ichi @ Scotts Square

Sushi Ichi is a Michelin-starred sushi restaurant hailing from Ginza in Tokyo. It is located within the new Scotts Square, providing an exquisite sushi experience for its customers. There are 5 sushi sets to choose from, starting from $60++. Omakase at $250/per person was the choice of this meal, consisting of Appetizer, Assorted Sashimi, 2 Assorted…
