How to describe heaven in my mouth? This piece of wagyu beef was so beautifully marbled and fatty. The puddle of beef juice leaking from those four tiny rectangles was a clear indication of how juicy that meat was. And so tender, not the melt in your mouth type but with just enough springy bite so that I could appreciate its wondrous texture and feel the juices erupting onto my tongue.

The meat was simply topped with some bonito flakes, okra and pickled cucumber. It was accompanied by some Japanese shortgrain rice which tasted pretty normal, pickles and miso soup. It was a filling end to the lunch omakase and I felt really satiated at the end of the meal.

Adding on a local twist to this dish, this soft shell crab came with chili crab sauce, which was tangy and had the right level of spiciness. It was crispy and really tantalises your taste buds.⁣

Fun Fact: Did you know the Sakae Sushi mascot, the frog, was specially designed such that the legs looked like little gold ingots?⁣

Though they were the pioneer in conveyor belt sushi, they had kinda fell off the bandwagon and got overshadowed by the abundance of sushi restaurants popping up over the years. Which was why I was rather surprised when they announced that they had actually revamped their menu as of late last year. Starting off my meal with this assorted sashimi, no doubt it was served fresh but here's a special shoutout to the aka ebi. I was taken aback by the freshness and the sweetness coming from this shrimp which was specially selected as it was bigger and sweeter than their counterparts which was what you usually get from typical casual dining jap restaurants. I can assure you, this was no 'shrimple' affair ~!⁣

Chef Patrick has mentioned that instead of the usual liquid shoyu, he has presented diners with his signature shoyu foam, so that they can customize their saltiness preference to go with the fish. On this day, we were presented with the seasonal fish of the chūtoro (fatty tuna belly), herring fish roe and amberjack mackerel. Each slice brings a different texture and flavour when paired with the umami shoyu foam and wasabi.

The second and third course set the bar even higher, with the unique Monaka that has two crisp wafers sandwiching a pump of foie gras parfait and an in-house pickled with radish with a topping of an aged 15-year old balasamic vinegar. To prevent surfeiting, the tanginess and punch from the radish and vinegar cuts through the heaviness of the foie gras. Rounding off the initial few courses, Chef Patrick served a cold Japanese somen with truffle and fried dry white bait to further whet the appetite and open the palate.

Impress your next lunch partner at this Japanese restaurant along Robertson Quay. Expect quality, dashi-based dishes that will knock your socks off, such as the Beef Sukiyaki Udon ($18) featuring sukiyaki beef slices, al dente udon and poached egg sitting in a tasty dashi broth. Good for sharing is the tender Grilled Wagyu Beef ($48) and the luxurious Gindara Saikyo Yaki ($38) – grilled silver cod fish paired with white miso.

Bookmark this Jap-fusion resto-bar along Mohamed Sultan Road for fancy date nights – complete with mod chic decor and dim lighting to suit the mood! Go for the tender and juicy Lamb Chops ($45 for one pax, $118 for sharing) which comes with savoury lamb ragout and roasted vegetables. P.S. There're vegetarian options here too, like the Summer Vegetable Risotto ($25) consisting of summer vegetables simmered with Japanese Koshihikari rice topped with parmigiana.

This place really reminded me of ichiran ramen in Japan. As soon as we sat down, we were handed an order sheet for us to customise the entire bowl of ramen, from the richness of the soup base, to the toughness of the noodles to even the garnish on top! The chashu was soft and tender and cooked to perfection. The broth was thick and aromatic and you could taste the depth of the soup. Granted it was pretty salty, but I guess Japanese food are usually towards the saltier side!! Pretty decently priced at $13.9 per bowl!
