Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

I have a bit of mixed feelings about omakase (meaning ‘I’ll leave it to you’ – the chef, in Japanese), because on one hand, I absolutely adore the fresh, delicate and usually super tasty little courses that come as a bit of a surprise, without the stress of deciding what to eat, but on the other, not having control over what I get to eat … Continue reading Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

*UPDATE: This restaurant has now renamed to Omoté Singapore. Everyone has probably heard of Sushiro by now, with many people touting it as the ‘cheapest bara chirashi don in Singapore’. Or, one of the cheapest at least. At $12.80 for a seemingly generous serving of chunky cubes of raw fish on rice, it’s pretty good value. I, being the greedy girl I am, went straight … Continue reading Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

Omakase at S$18. Huh, what? Excuse me? Sounds too good to be true, but it is – for the first 18 patrons of the day (limited opening special). After that, the prices are S$38, S$68 and S$98 respectively for the various levels of Omakase (dishes selected by the chef) sets offered at Ryo Sushi. I recently tried their S$38 course, which comes with edamame, seaweed salad, … Continue reading Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don

Another Japanese restaurant! Singapore is seriously full of them. Well… I guess high demand, high supply, hence the many places offering cuisine from the land of the rising sun. The Sushi Bar is one such place. This small but popular shop has been satisfying consumers with affordable, neatly arranged sushi rolls, fresh chirashi dons and sushi at Far East Plaza since 2012, with long lines clamouring … Continue reading The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don

Tanuki Raw, Orchard Central

A fun, quirky restobar with great Happy Hour promotions, Tanuki Raw adds a shot of life and colour to the otherwise quiet Orchard Central. Though in recent times the building has seen many new additions to its food and beverage establishments, so perhaps it is not really as sleepy as it used to be. But anyway, I digress. Recently, I visited Tanuki Raw with some girl … Continue reading Tanuki Raw, Orchard Central

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar at Wisma This year, I’ve been to Wisma Atria a few times for various reasons – eat teppanyaki, fix my Sony camera etc. And each time I pass by Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, the casual Japanese place within the mall food court, there’s always an insane queue. So of course that got me curious about it (we Singaporeans like to queue for the good … Continue reading Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

Kaz Japanese Fusion Sushi, Rochester Mall

I’d say that Rochester is one of the hip, trendy enclaves of restaurants, bars and other eateries in Singapore. And Rochester Mall is its newest addition, close to the main road. This place seems a bit different though. A mid-sized, sleepy building at the entrance to Rochester, it houses just about 10 F&B establishments and then mostly services like laundry, hair, spa, education etc – … Continue reading Kaz Japanese Fusion Sushi, Rochester Mall

TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

I was recently invited to a tasting session at TODAI, an international all-you-can-eat buffet chain restaurant (the website says it originates from North America, but they have many branches in Korea – the Singapore branch is apparently partly handled by the Korean office) located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, and totally jumped at the chance. You see, I love buffets, and the many … Continue reading TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
