One of the highlights was this 'Kabuke Wagyu Bowl'. At $28++, it's simple and delicious, served with Wagyu Striploin, Onsen Egg, Garlic Chips and Truffle Shoyu. I'll have a bowl all to myself the next visit. 😋

First was The Betterfield, now new on the block is The BetterShip at The Cathay with a new concept. the BetterShip serves up Sashimi and Dons which you can customise with your preferred sashimi or pick one of the specialities which include:
- Chirashi Don
- Kaisen Don
- Aburi Wagyu Don
- Truffle Beef Don

We tried the Kaisen Don and the most addictive part was the sweet-sourish sauce on the rice!

One of my all time favourite foods, tonight's offering at Tamoya Udon didn't disappoint. My favourite being a throw up between the Beef Sukiyaki Udon ($13.80) and this Double Tempura Vegetable Udon ($13.80).

Will definitely be back for more springy udon noodles in future.

Super wobbly Matcha Pudding from Misato, now open at The Centrepoint. We managed to try Misato when it was at The Cathay and was delighted with the presentation of the food. And of course the taste. Everything is prepared upon ordering, so that might mean a little wait, but worth it for items like the Okonomiyaki, Gyoza and dessert.

Definitely not for the faint at heart, and if you can actually bear the overwhelming constant noise pollution within the restaurant and can put up with listening to your neighbouring table discuss their work and love lives because the restaurant decided personal space was not a priority in design… then this $49.90++ (seasonal price) “Premium Chirashi Don” is for you. The sashimi definitely outweighs the rice in quantity with thick slices of salmon, tuna, swordfish, yellowtail, scallop, salmon belly, salmon roe, tamago, prawn, uni, and one seasonal fish.
There’s so much sashimi, even my hungry sashimi-craving foodie comrade couldn’t finish this bowl!
I can’t deny that this restaurant serves up wicked sashimi dishes, but I didn’t like that the sashimi was served in super thick slices… and the noise… oh the noise pollution of what sounded like a million people talking echoing in my head. When I walked into the restaurant I immediately asked to be moved as we were at a cramp little table with people chatting on both sides with less than 20cm between us… enough to be the equivalent of claustrophobia for me. Kudos to the restaurant who changed our seats so that only one side had annoying chatty people. Service is great… ambience is… not my cup of tea. People don’t even sit so close on a communal table! I would prefer it if they stuck cubicle partitions between the tables even if it were cramp, I wouldn’t have to listen to others’ conversations and could enjoy savouring my food in peace. There’s a reason they say silence is golden.

How good does this Ong Maki look? It's chef's signature sushi roll at Choubei Japanese Restaurant. At $35++, it's jam packed with various types of sashimi and uni depending on the season. There's even crispy fish skin and avocado in the roll for extra flavour and texture. The restaurant is based at Village Hotel Changi, so it's a little bit out of the way, but that also makes it great for the escapades outside of the city.

If there's one thing I'd order again, this would be no. 1 on my list. Salmon with sweet mango piled on a stack of sushi rolls and topped with ikura! 😍 Simple affordable pleasures.

The salad in our 8-course omakase lunch set was this Sea Bream with imported Japanese tomatoes served peeled and topped with shallots. The fish slices were tender and had a smokey flavour from being torched. A nice refreshing dish at the start of our meal.

Part of the 8 Course Lunch Omakase ($120 per pax) where the dishes change everytime depending what's in season.
This dish included fatty tuna, Hokkaido octopus and thinly sliced Leather Jacket with a little pinch of fish liver smeared between the folded sashimi. My favourite would be the fresh fatty tuna. Leather Jacket flesh is rather sweet when cooked, but as a sashimi it was more plain with the liver adding a hint of flavour which I drowned with wasabi and soy sauce.

Housemade Tofu with Bonito Jelly and Hokkaido Uni. The Tofu has a texture more like REALLY thick paste and mixed together with the bonito jelly there's a nutty flavour to this dish. This was one of the items we got to try in the Kanda Wadatsumi Omakase set.
The 8 Course Omakase ($120 per pax) includes: 2 kinds of appetizers, salad, assorted sashimi, seasonal dish, main course, shokuji, miso soup and a dessert.

One of my favourite dishes that we tried the other night at Skukuu Izakaya is this torched vinegared mackerel.
With a tender texture, one bite just wasn't enough and we quickly polished off every slice.

New lunch options at Kurama including this indulgent Gyu Don with steamed minced beef over a bed of rice. Love the slightly sweet sauce and of course the onsen egg. Mix everything up and it's good to go!
