Omurice with hamburg steak $28 + Pork loin Katsu and mini beef katsu $26 + 2 calpis drinks ($5 each). Total damage $40.
Ambience was very bistro but the meat were all very tender and juicy inside and super crispy outside! Love the eggs on the omu rice!!! Salad was super generous too. Enjoyed my meal there!
They had a big menu also! Saw others enjoying roast beef don looked so good too!

📍Akira Back, JW Marriott hotel South Beach📍
💸 48 Hrs "Sanchoku" Short Rib: $50
💸 "The Best Back" Bundle- Best of both worlds: $45 (we chose mushroom pizza and 'brother from another mother' roll)

Serving up good quality and innovative dishes with strong Japanese and Korean influences, Akira Back has become one of our favourite restaurants!! The dishes that we tried truly surprised us in terms of texture and flavour.😍

Our most most favourite dish goes to the short ribs!! Don't be deceived by its unassuming presentation, the short ribs are the epitome of 'melt in the mouth'.🥩 After being braised for 48h, the beef was sooo tender and flavourful that we didnt even have to chew much! Such a pity that there were only 4 pieces, given its hefty price tag.😢

Our experience at Akira Back was nothing short of fantastic in terms of the food and service, and till this day we still miss the food greatly!👏 However, as it's quite expensive, we'll probably be coming back on special occasions.😊

The mushroom pizza's crust was thin and crispy while the mushroom was slightly crunchy and chewy.🍕 Together with the truffle oil drizzled on top, it was truly an explosion of flavours in our mouths.🎊

Surprisingly good pancakes here. You can also drizzle some matcha on the pancakes. Check out this if u are here!

The 'Brother from another mother' roll had an interesting concept featuring both unagi and anago in a sushi roll. However, maybe due to the fact that there was too much going on, we couldnt really taste the unagi and anago.😕

Great bowl of beef, super tender! So decadent🥰 with foie gras, uni, ikura and caviar.

Itacho Sushi had their Ikura Festival recently, serving two versions of their Ikura Don at 60% off.

I managed to try their Salmon & Roe Giant Mini Rice (S$11.90) on the last day of their promotion today. Featuring sushi rice buried under some raw salmon and a sea of salmon roe, the mini rice bowl was bursting with umami to a point where I wished I had more rice to pair with the Ikura. However, this was how exactly the Ikura Don should taste like.

Of course, in the absence of overflowing roe and the enthusiastic shouting of “Oisa-!”, the atmosphere lacked the element of drama that would come with the “festival”. Still, it was a good to have alongside the array of Sushi, Gunkan and other Tabemono that is familiar to the diners here. And the complimentary hot green tea did its job in cleansing the palate after emptying this bowl.

This bowl was filled with the goodness of many premium ingredients (foie gras, unagi, truffle, ikura, wagyu beef, onsen egg). Well balanced flavours and presented in a cute Japanese bowl. We had the Burpple set which came with a pint of Asahi each for $98. Will be back to try the other items on the menu!

Beef bowl: pretty good standard beef bowl
Old skool: truffle egg was great! Luncheon meat was fried to perfection, not oily and still crispy even tho we had it takeaway!
Relatively small portion but w 1 for 1 it’s so worth it!

Rare to find ochazuke at this price in Singapore. This comes with a bowl of rice topped with lots of salmon flakes, a few cucumbers and ikura, and a pot of a savoury green tea soup that you pour into the bowl of rice. There’s some seaweed in the rice and the combination of rice and soup is very tasty. I changed the onsen egg to a hanjuku egg for no additional charge.
