Grilled dried puffer fish. Taste like ba kwa but nicer! Recommended side dish to pair with sake!

Adding to the extensive portfolio of Les Amis Group is this modern sumiyaki, which emphasizes in the art of grilling. The quality of ingredients is the main draw of this place as most of the sourcing if done selectively from different prefectures across Japan.

********

The surface of the tofu was grilled to perfection with a slight crisp. When you bite into it, the melt-in-mouth creamy smooth interior flows right out with no restraint. The tofu comes with two types of miso sauce, the original miso and Aichi red miso.

********

The making of miso is an art. Hundreds of varieties of this classic Japanese staple can be found across the country. The taste, aroma, and appearance of miso all vary by region and season. Each miso’s fermentation and aging process involves a multitude if factors from the type of koji used, the cooking technique, the temperature, duration of fermentation to the fermenting vessel, which all results in variances of taste, colour and texture. One of the ways to categorize miso is by the colour. In general, the longer the miso is fermented, the saltier it gets.

********

Though the original miso has a milder and more delicate taste, it does not compromise in enhancing the flavor profile of the dish any less. On the other hand, the red miso is definitely bolder and richer, with a surprisingly sweet finish. Enjoyed this dish thoroughly! 😋

Cold somen tossed with confit egg yolk & shio konbu, topped with truffle molecues & sakura ebi

Super value for money dish! The somen was cooked perfectly and well seasoned, loved that light hint of truffle and the crunch from the ebi 😋

Roasted “sous vide” beef short ribs with
Japanese pumpkin puree & baby rainbow carrots 🥕

Beef was tender and well cooked, slightly fatty.

Didn’t quite enjoy or appreciate the accompaniments of the dish though. The raw shredded rainbow carrots tasted just like the orange ones, neither did they provide any interesting textures or contributed to the flavor profile of the dish.. pumpkin purée was rather bland and underwhelming..

Grilled raclette cheese with new potato.

Underwhelming dish. Cheese hardened and stiffened up when it got to us. ☹️

My memories of raclette have always been fond when I was had it during a raclette party during exchange days in France. And this did not come close to that taste I reminisce..

Daikon, egg, konnyaku & 7 other selection.

Additional options to get 6 pieces [$17] & 12 pieces [$42]. For the 12 pieces option, there is a special mention of special “Tsukiji market” oden which are premium homemade oden direct from Tsukiji market.

Big love for this Japanese YTF, especially so on a cold night like this. Dashi broth is light and flavorful! And everything in the broth is to be eaten with a dab of spicy mustard.

The other 7 selection include: Yaki chikuwa (tube shaped fish cake), Yude tam ago, Atsuage (deep fried tofu), ganmo (deep-friend tofu with vegetables), Jaga imo (boiled potato), tsukune (chicken ball), Tsumire (fish ball). The one on the skewer I’m not entirely sure 😅

Some hits and misses. No options other than number of pieces but I’ll say you’re in good hands 😌

Soft simmered iberico pork belly served with soft boiled egg.

Super well seasoned and tender melt in your mouth braised pork belly, almost as though the meat texture has disintegrated into the gravy it was served with.

This is so tasty it can definitely stand on its own. Not quite sure how the onsen egg add value to this dish though. Was a little confused after I break the egg and mixed it with the sauce. But I really enjoyed the chunky pork belly! 😋

Will definitely order this again!

Semi grilled assorted fish cube, avocado & cucumber.

Chirashi is always fun to eat when you have a good mix of fish. Bonus points for the tasty nori seasoned sushi rice! They added unagi & tamago as well!

Semi grilled salmon, raw salmon, spicy salmon minced and salmon roe.

Love the flavorful seaweed seasoning mixed into the sushi rice! Appreciate it when restaurants go the extra mile with the rice. Together with the generous amount and variety of salmon.

This was really good value for the price!

Star dish of the night! So glad to be introduced to this place, now I am able to feed my inner gyoza monster on a regular basis.

I am nuts about all kinds of dumplings -potstickers, gyozas, raviolis, mandus you name it.

I have a slight preference for gyozas due to the thinner skins used.

This gyoza is boiled unlike the usual pan fried ones, and served in a light soy sauce, sesame oil & vinegar blend (reminded me of 红油抄手 but not spicy!) topped with a lot of spring onion and sesame. The filling was very wholesome and substantial! I believe the filling has minced pork and shrimp, will verify when I go back to satisfy my craving again 😋

Fried chicken with tartar sauce.

Succulent juicy chicken thigh pieces coated with a nice crispy batter with the most awesome chunky pink tartar sauce. Perfect grub that goes perfectly well with their draught suntory premium malt! 😋
