Can’t recall the name of the mocking tail which has lots of cranberries and bubbly. Dolores, it shall be named, and remembered by.

Akira Back’s dishes never fails to exemplify how painstaking it must have been to create not a fusion dish, but to fuse two great dishes as one. menu. Imagine the ever so popular “sio bak” (crispy pork belly) dabbed with miso rolled in between a thin layer of moist and turgid Japanese rice, topped with refreshing coleslaw of cabbage, apple and chive. The combination is unprecedented and probably unthinkably wonderful.

Sous vide then roasted chicken breast perfectly done with truffles potato purée and teriyaki sauce. It’s simple relative to the dishes at Akira Back and I may not be too surprise if I return for this.

Quite disappointed as the Foie Gras did have the melty texture and caramelised crust. Maybe the focus on the crust is on the corn croquette instead. The white truffle powder was totally unnecessary, underwhelming and un-understandable.

This is a must order each time. Thin membrane cut of truffle infused raw chutoro tuna resting on a wafer thin crust, with mayo that fuse it all amazingly together, the fusion of texture and flavors. Honestly this you will not feel deprived having this skinny diet version of the pizza!

Yes, Holy Cow! That’s the exclamation when you sink into this signature maki roll at Akira Back which has a tempura ebi core, fluffy light rice and aburi sliced wagyu beef lovingly tender wrapping round it. The kimchi purée and fried garlic slice brings it all together so nicely and so true to its Korean fusion origins.

Yes, it’s one of those instant chicken wings that you can grab a bag off the supermarket. But what Kiisu did was a complete re-engineering. The wings are re-battered, re-seasoned with spice and re-drizzled with sweet chilli, re-topping with sukura-ebi and cabe. What’s not to love!

Delicately shaped and breaded, each cube packs a wonderful capsule of beefy goodness. You can feel how painstakingly the chef has assembled this with the right cut of beef to give it a really full texture. Perfectly complemented with the mustard mayo although the base sauce to me was probably not necessary as it’s almost taste like a tardy teriyaki sauce.

Would certainly recommend his appetizer which I can imagine would be almost be as wonderful a tapas to go with your booze.

So full of Wok hey, good consistency in the noodles - keeping the right level of al dente whilst keeping the moisture intact with lots of eggy goodness in the pork broth. Loved their use of their smoked pancetta in place of sliced pork belly which gives packs a bigger punch in flavour. The clams are fresh and good. But can’t say the same for the prawns used which is the only reason why it’s not getting a full 5 star rating.
