Our taste buds were treated to the marriage of french and japanese cuisine. For 5 people, the server classically shares that we have to get 5:4:3 - or 5 appetisers, 4 charcoal grill and 3 mains.

Highlighting the memorable ones here:
1. Shrimp Dumplings - plump, juicy darlings in rich bisque ($25)
2. Uni pasta - a special thats not on the menu, so buttery rich and decadent, king of all pastas ($42)
3. Little Neck Clams - a definite must order for how generous and hearty the portion is. ($20) Drinking the clam broth warms you up so
4. Australian Wagyu and Garlic Chips - chunky beefs!! Cooked on their special Binchotan charcoal that made it extra smokey ($16)
5. Hokkaido Scallops - delicately prepared XL sized scallops ($22)
6. Foie Gras - love how earthy the foei gras tasted, and thought its rly unique it's paired with daikon in dashi broth. May be an acquired taste but liked this alot ($24)
7. Short Rib (the feature!) - paired with port wine reduction, this is a clear indulgence of tastes ($40)
8. Binchotan - the signature dish of "popiah" is densely packed with rich pulled Angus Beef, irresistible with cream ($25)
9. Uni & Caviar - one unique dish on cauliflower puree? Flavour bomb ($25)

What a feast with friends!! :-)

A lil strange to be stopping by here for purely desserts since they seemed to be known for their skewers and mains, but the 𝙎𝙢𝙤𝙠𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙚 (~$15) was done well 👌🏻
I tasted bittersweet chocolate upon first bite, but was quickly hit with the smoky aftertaste soon after. This was definitely different, and in this case I’d do different bc the smoky taste was addictive 😛 Paired tgt with the light sour yoghurt sorbet, this wasn’t a heavy and overwhelming dessert — perfect to end a heavy main.🍰
The cornflake (?) and blueberry sides didn’t do much to add any flavour, and the chocolate cake could do with a lil more fudgy chocolate/ moist texture, but this is something I wouldn’t mind having again for sure 🤩

Buta kakuni - pork collar, barley, peanut butter, corn. This was a great main course as well! The pork was soft and flavourful and reminded us of a giant chashu tbh. It went really well with the mix of barley, peanut butter and corn - who knew this combination would taste this good!


Beef cheek, potato, pear - this was the main course we had for the lunch set and it was extraordinary! It may have been one of the best beef cheek dishes I’ve had in awhile, and mind you I’ve tried a lot from different restaurants because... my favorite meat is beef oops. For the lunch set, it’s really great value for money!

Cold smoked hamachi, ponzu, dashi - this was part of the weekday lunch set (2 courses for $28). We really enjoyed this little starter and how fresh it tasted, with the mixture of hamachi and ponzu giving an extra refreshing and tangy flavour.

Burnt aubergine, white sesame, yoghurt. This was a really hearty and impressive starter. Loved the strong smoky flavour of the aubergine and the thick, rich sauce that accompanied it. This was part of the lunch set they offer on weekdays, and we had two courses for $28++. Definitely a gem in the CBD area, with its unique hole-in-the-wall ambience and tunnel? train?-like interior design. Service was really attentive as well.
