I've had my eye our for an authentic Italian diner for a while and Atmastel was recommended to me by Burpple. Safe to say, I wasn't disappointed. Copious use of olive oil and Italian herbs made the Quattro Formaggi (Four Cheese) pizza for me. A bite into its thin crust let loose and appropriate formulation of olive oil and cheeses, a true Mediterranean dish.

Apart from great food, the lively atmosphere of this place makes it great for meetups or even date night. Perhaps a nice jaunt for some of you?

When they put this dish as their Chef's Recommendation, they weren't fooling around. This dish is an amazing manifestation of what I thought a Don should be! The Chashu pork mixed in with the sweet teriyaki style sauce to give a texture rivaling that of perfectly cooked "kuay chap" style pork. Combine it with the heated stone bowl and quality white rice it was amazing and worth every penny at 11.90++.

Aji-Ichi also had a NSman/Student promotion where each main course comes with a free green tea and side dish but since it was a weekend I didn't get to enjoy that. Nevertheless, a good experience with friendly service (fast too!).

And this is what justifies the price tag: great service. The service staff checked in with us to see how was our dining experience and offered us a complimentary Brownie dessert for Mother's Day! Not spectacular but a nice gesture nonetheless. I'll be coming back (but not too soon as I'll burn a hole in my wallet if I come too often)!

And we've saved the best for last! The margarita cooked chicken was perfectly succulent and tender, partly justifying its $36++ price tag. Combine it with the sauce, vegetables and refried beans in a tortilla and you'll know what authentic Mexican food truly tastes like. This was one of their off-the-menu specials so you'll have to specially ask for it.

At $20++ the deep fried dish resembles more bar food than restaurant flair. On one hand I really enjoyed the succulent insides of this "fried burrito" but at the same time feel guilty from how full I felt after eating it. A good try for those wanting to see what Tex-Mex cooking is really like!

Previously I had the chicken fajitas when I first came to this place. The pork fajitas had a tougher texture similar to mutton but retained the flavour with just enough fat left after cooking. One bite into a (self assembled) wrap reveals how tender the meat is with the caramelized onions and various sauces. At $32++ this dish is meant to share as a main.

I loved this place so much that I decided to come back for Mother's Day! I simply had to share what I had found with my mom.

This was the Crab Meat and Avocado Quasidellas. I'm used to cheesy chicken varieties like that from KFC or Tony Romas but this was a refreshing twist. Literally refreshing! The lightness of the crab meat coupled with the thin tortillas and refreshing avocado paste slipped off the palate easily. At $32++ this was one of their off-the-menu specials and is a great starter to share!

Simply the best Mexican place I've ever eaten at. You pay a premium for this quality; the $32++ fajitas I had was a tier above anything I've ever eaten; including the ones at The Chop House or Tony Romas. The juices and sauces blend well with the warm tortillas making for a juicy treat. Well worth a trip if you're craving quality Mexican food and have the cash to spare.
