View of the bottom of the rainfall vortex. Some unusual sushi’s (eg. foie gras handroll) at reasonable prices. However, the quality isn’t very high - below Sushi Tei and above Sakae Sushi. The app for ordering must have been designed by a rookie, because it is most user-unfriendly.

Intimate restaurant with a beautiful sushi counter made from ONE 150-yrs-old tree. Unless you’re a large group and need the private room, ask to sit at the counter and watch the two talented chefs at work - chef Tomoo Kimura and lady (yes, a real rarity, and she is most charming!) chef Akane Eno. The sashimi/sushi is among the best in Singapore (alongside the two Shinji’s, Ki-Sho, Ashino, Ginza sushi-Ichi, and in my opinion better than the overrated Shoukouwa). Dining at these establishments costs a fortune, so when you go, might as well splash out and opt for the most expensive omakase! Excellent sake list and pro-active service. On a subsequent visit, we had a family celebration (with small children) and took the private room. The service is as personal and the food as exquisite.

The ramen is pretty good, although not at par with the best ramen in town; I personally even prefer the under-rated Bari-Uma located at nearby Tanglin Shopping Centre. The original ramen comes with an unusual lime-flavoured broth. Side dishes are nothing to write home about.

The only superior items here are the freshly-baked, hot mini pita bread that you eat with roasted garlic. Good variety of steak cuts. The problem is they are not as flavourful as at premier steakhouses, like Cut, Wolfgang, Morton, or even Bistecca. The only reason I go here is because of the 1-for-1 Entertainer offer, but there you have to be careful because they have a complicated system and not all staff members understand it, and once we were cheated.

The sashimi is fresh and thick. The kitchen shows creativity, and some dishes are delish (e.g. pitan tofu), while others are avoidable (e.g. wafu spaghetti, teba gyoza, unagi fried rice, scallop mentaiyaki). The portions are minuscule, so you could end up spending $75 per head (without alcohol) before being full. At least here, they take some credit cards (not Amex), whereas the original Sushi Bar outlet at Far East Plaza (which is cheaper) only takes cash. At this price level, with minimalist service, you'd be better off going to Ginza Kuroson Takashimaya on 3/F for much better ambience and better food. People will mourn the disappearance of mid-price, varied Japanese eateries at Nghee Ann City, like Sushi Tei or Ichiban Boshi. Now, for reasonably-priced Jap, you have to go to the basement lah!

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
