This promotional seafood mini rice was quite satisfying with roasted scallop, salmon roe, crab meat, prawn and crab miso on the side! Rly like the refreshing yuzu sauce.

Served with leeks, tang-oh and yuzu skin. Wished there were more yuzu zest to it, but the broth was pretty decent. Prefer a slightly more chewy soba texture though.

Aburi, asked them to torch slightly longer as my mum doesn’t eat raw food; this was also pretty good, texture was a little like fatty tuna? So far we really enjoyed the food here!

Really enjoyed this! presentation was 💯, tasted as good as it looked! Pork was beautifully caramelised, tender, firm creamy foie gras, came with runny egg served within its shell with sweet, briny uni on top.

Pretty cool space with a hidden bar.

Assorted vegetable with 2 black tiger prawns which I liked except some parts of the tempura were a tad soggy. Nothing spectacular, but was good that the batter was generally crisp, wasnt overly heavy and sauces were not too salty. The lunch set came with salad and miso soup.

Under “Today’s Special” menu, cooked in sake broth and the clams were very plump.

The starter set which costs $25/29++ ($25++ for non alcoholic drinks) is good for first timers if you aren’t sure what to get. Comes with 4 Chicken skewers / 2 Pork skewers / Salad / Drink. Pictured here is x2. Do let them know if you’re not comfortable with giblets.

Not quite sure what dressing was it (sesame??) but I strangely, really loved the salad!

We had the chicken filet with yuzu pepper, chicken thigh. Both of which were tasty and remained juicy. The other item served was chicken tail (this was my first time eating it and it was good! Grilled till golden brown, and fatty but the texture was interesting), and the crisp juicy wings were shiok.

As for pork skewers we had the pork belly wrapped with enoki and sweet cherry tomato. Also added on ala carte skewer of pork belly shiso, quite liked the fragrance of shiso.

Enjoyed our dinner here. Took me back to Japan for a bit 🥺 As the place is rather small, do make a reservation before heading down.

We finally made it to House of Chirashi few weeks back (thanks everyone on my feed who raved about it) and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

Visually pleasing with edible flowers, tobiko and fried fish skin strewn beautifully over the assorted fresh sashimi cubes of salmon, tuna, unagi, swordfish etc. The ratio of sashimi to rice was fantastic - could barely find any rice in every spoonful🤣 At $16.80 for bara chirashi, this was really worth it!

Do make a reservation in advance as the place is pretty small and seating is limited especially with safe distancing.

Snow crab leg was sweet and the egg custard was smooooooooooth. The prices of chawanmushi is steep (starts from $8), but it was pretty good and I liked how one can pick based on preference with options such as foie gras, snow crab, ikura, uni, truffle. If you’re feeling a little fancy, go for their Signature Chawanmushi which has all of the above!

The deep fried shrimp was damn addictive! Good as a bar bite.
