Avocado Mushi with Edamame Bean, Corn Glaze and Black Fish Roe, Prawn Tempura with Crumble Somen Noodles

An eye catching hot appetizer that seems to test the science of gravity had us all watch as the wait staff carefully balanced and presented each plate of Prawn Tempura with Crumble Somen Noodles and Bean Curd with Avocado Mushi and Black Fish Roe. Savor the chilled light bean curd dressed in a lightly creamy avocado sauce finished with popping salty black fish roes first before heading towards the golden crispy prawn tempura. Lightly dipped into the savory light tempura broth, the prawns exude sweetness with a nice crunch factor from the somen crust. Finished off with some blanched Edamane beans to remind us why we love Japanese food so much!







Seared Tuna Sashimi coated with Sesame Seed and Fried Vegetable Roll and Yuzu Dressing and Pan-Fried Wagyu Beef with Soybean Paste garnished with Red Radish and Lotus Root

Our second course may look bare on the plate but is a platter of contrasting delicious flavors of Japanese classic. First up, rolls of nicely seared pink tuna crusted with black and white sesame seeds is accompanied by lightly battered vegetable roll with seaweed and sauced with a light savor y sweet one denotes a decent second appetizer course. The tuna is firm and full of meaty notes. The next one of Fried Wagyu Beef oozes with a creamy nutty miso flavor. Tender and juicy, there was also crispy thin lotus root and radish for texture.







Stuffed Bean Curd with Chopped Chicken in Clear Lime Soup

The soup course is soothing and perfect for those who love a light soup laced with citrus fragrance. Two pouches of sweet inari bean curd is stuffed with chicken accompanies the soup. What makes this so good is that it is kept warm throughout our enjoyment, making some this simple be so comforting.







Grilled Marinated Quail glazed with Teriyaki Sauce on a bed of sauteed Kai Lan with fried sliced Garlic and Chilli Radish Oroshi

A sexy dish that signifies the new age Tokyo style cuisine, the boneless quail is stuffed and grilled to just right. The meat is tender and savory while the filling is soft and meaty. A light teriyaki sauce amp up the quail nicely. Crunchy sautéd Kai Lan with garlic and a chili crumbed radish makes an interesting sidekicks to the quail.







Simmered Sea Bream in Sweet Ginger sauce served with Mountain Vegetables topped with Pickled Ginger, Carrot and Leek

Sea Bream, a delicate white fish, is neatly rolled up and simmered in a gingery sauce. Its flaky and sweet and comes with a lovely array of vegetables beneath for added textures. The garnish of pickled ginger, carrot and leek also makes a nice touch of tangy flavors to the fish.








Wasabi Creme Brulee and Matcha Mocha in Sweet Red Bean Soup

It’s an interesting pairing of East meets West in dessert! The Wasabi Crème Brulee is laced with a hint of the Japanese horseradish, smooth and tingling. Two pieces of mocha sprinkled with green tea powder goes beautifully with the sweet red bean soup which as a little barley and green bean too. A cleverly concocted dessert!
