The chef’s selection of sashimi as part of our omakase featured an ocean’s bounty worth of the freshest scallops, salmon, toro and uni.

Our eyes literally lit up as we got front row seats at the bar counter of Chef Andy blowtorching our A4 Kagoshima Wagyu sushi. Smoky, fatty and rich, this absolutely divine bite was had as part of Big Sake Bar’s omakase.

There's nothing like a hot bowl of miso soup filled with sweet asari clams, tofu and enoki mushrooms to end off the savoury portion of Big Sake Bar's omakase.

The tangle of chilled Inaniwa noodles were pleasantly chewy, slightly thinner than regular udon, and suffused with the unmistakable scent of truffle, contrasted beautifully by briny pops of flavour from ikura pearls. Perfect alongside one of the restaurant’s many excellent sakes.

Silky smooth tofu topped with pungent and creamy century egg is a classic that I'll never tire of. Chef Andy adds tempura crumbs and negi to his, a thoughtful touch that contrasts nicely with the soft elements of the dish.

My favourite appetiser from Big Sake Bar's omaksase - a plump, fresh and creamy oyster bathing in a pool of ponzu sauce. Perfection in a half shell!

Japanese-style salads aren't often exciting, but Big Sake Bar's was well-seasoned with a wasabi goma dressing and topped with tatami iwashi, baby sardines pressed and dried into sheets of crunchy umami. This simple yet smart addition made all the difference.

They’re really keen to play up the onion theme over at The Glass Onion, and whilst I didn’t mind the flotilla of diced onion in the bowl, the soup itself was too oily for my liking. Thankfully the chashu was fatty and tender, and the egg, well-seasoned and runny.

With dishes running the gamut of affordable local, Western and Japanese cuisines in order to cater to students, the business lunch crowd and the adjoining hotel’s guests, The Glass Onion’s diverse menu is one of its strengths, but also runs the risk of not being focused enough, where some items don’t fare as well as others.

I wasn't expecting it, but the squid was surprisingly tender and grilled to perfection, surpassing even some versions I've had at izakayas. Would order this again in a heartbeat for its affordability and quality.

Top-grade Kagoshima Wagyu beef slices so buttery they almost melt in your mouth, served with an innocuous Japanese potato salad that nearly threatened to steal the limelight from the already excellent beef. This is one of The Glass Onion’s more popular dishes, and I can see why, especially so with it’s very competetive pricing.

Ippudo may not be the best, but it serves satisfaction in a bowl. The creamy tonkotsu broth is comfortingly rich yet refined, and thoroughly mixing in the miso paste and garlic oil adds even more depth. And whilst the chashu isn’t as thick and fatty as I would have liked, it was still nicely tender.

A simple but highly enjoyable appetiser of mentaiko-stuffed onigiri. Definitely get one while you’re here for the excellent ramen. Other fillings include ikura, salmon and aburi chashu.
