Lemongrass Raindrop Cake ($7) Interesting way to present this jelly-like dessert in the form of a raindrop cake. The lemongrass flavour was refreshing, with a subtle citrus aroma along with the minty flavour from the peppermint leaves. The light flavour contrasted well with the vanilla creaminess of the creme anglaise. Surprisingly the overall taste was a well-balanced one without being overly sweet despite the caramelized pineapple, elderflower watermelon and chocolate soil.

Pan-seared Australian Barramundi ($22) An Indian cuisine-inspired main dish on Coalesce's menu. I like its presentation and pairing of the pan-seared fish with the tower of Tumeric infused pilaf rice. The fish was pan seared till crispy on top while still tender fresh underneath. Drizzling curry foam on it worked wonder for adding an earthy savory flavor to the fish, yet not masking the original freshness of the fish as in the case if a sauce was poured over. The pilaf rice was moist, had a spicy tumeric aroma and sweet from the brown raisins.

Laksa Linguine ($18) Laksa pasta seems to be one of the hot favorites at Coalesce. A whopping plate of linguine tossed in mild spicy laksa sauce, where you can even taste the chopped laksa leaves. I would have liked it better with a stronger laksa taste though. Served with chewy squid and juicy prawns, they aren't stingy with the seafood at all. A familiar laksa ingredient, tau pok, could also be found, just that there's no gravy to soak it up. You could also create thickness in the pasta by breaking the soft poached egg and let the oozy egg yolk flow.

6/5 Stars Would Go Back For The Wagyu! Was introduced by my friend and had a great experience there. The food is really good and the staff is friendly. They would share and recommend the dishes so do please ask them if you're lost in the menu! Highly recommend the Tochgi Wagyu skewers. It's buttery and when it slides in your mouth, the taste explodes with that unbelievable chewy texture of good meat. It also taste exceptionally well with the sake. I'm craving for it while writing this right now. 5/5 would go back to Shukuu for the experience. 6/5 stars would go back for the wagyu 😋

Fantastic food, a lovely, vibrant atmosphere as well as well-priced drinks (especially for the CBD) Must try: Gyu Ponzu, Squid Ink Calamari, Pork Jowl Charshu, Maguro Yukke, Mentaiko Aburi Sushi & Kushiyaki Skewers Pair the sake with everything. I travel to Japan a lot and I'll vouch for the sake selection and pairings over here, they know what they're doing! It’s served in special wine glasses so you get more of the delicate aromas from modern sake production methods. They support the Jizake Movement at this place, which is sort of a conservation effort to save craft sake in Japan and it always boggles my mind that more people don’t drink Sake in Singapore, it’s at such a perfect price point. I recommend the Kikuzakari, a sweet-dry hybrid Sake from Nagano. Pretty much all the food here goes perfectly with a glass of sake. I’d choose the Gyu Ponzu to highlight this signature citrus lift that mixes with the juices from the chilled and tender beef- the flavour just pops. The sushi here is excellent as well, the Mentaiko Aburi Sushi was blowtorched to perfection, with none of the usual butane aftertaste. The rice was firm, warm and seasoned beautifully. I can’t recommend the Squid Ink Calamari enough. It’s beautiful to look it as well as cooked to tender, buttery perfection. There’s a slight iron flavour from the ink that just coats your tongue like a hug. It honestly barely needed the mayo they served it with and the batter… I’ve been to specialist tempura shops in Tokyo’s CBD and this is the best tempura I’ve had in my life. Izakayas are places you go to pre-game in Japan so of course, there’s $53 Sapporo towers. I stuck to Sake but almost every other table seemed to think a tower was a great idea and it did seem to lift their mood. The place is happening la. Stop scrolling, just go only.

Great Place For Lunch I came here with my friend for lunch and it was not crowded. The atmosphere is nice, it was cozy and they were playing anime theme songs in the background. I had the Oyakodon set ($14++) which came with miso soup, pickles, and a DIY salad bowl. They had 4 types of salad available: Japanese garden salad, goma eggplants, mashed potato salad, & tofu with bonito flakes. All of them were delicious, I highly recommend maximising your included salad bowl. The oyakodon was also nice. The egg was fluffy and there was a lot of it covering the rice. Instead of the usual approach, the chicken came in the form of yakitori. The portion is quite big and we left feeling full & satisfied.
