Regular bowl ($12.90) came with choice of base, rainbow sides including corn, carrots, sesame etc , 2 mains and 3 toppings. (Not pictured) Decided to stick to the originals and picked the signature sushi rice. The rice was seasoned nicely with vinegar and matched the flavours of the bowl well, but it was a bummer that the texture was hard and clumpy and far from the yummy bed of sushi rice I had imagined. On to the sides - special mention to the pineapple which balanced the tangy flavours of the bowl with its sweetness and also wakame seaweed for it's nice crunch. I chose the spicy salmon and avocado as my 2 mains. Avocado was the right balance of mash and chunks, and very very well-seasoned. I would have this avocado on my toast for breakfast every day. Salmon chunks were supple and generously coated with the spicy sauce, simply delicious! The only issue I had was the seemingly small portions of their mains but I guess that is to be expected. Garlic chips as topping added a unique texture to the bowl and I love that Poke Theory was very generous with their range of interesting dressings (I high recommend the spicy avocado).

Tried the Green Curry Chicken (~$15) and Tom Yum Curry Steamed Fish (~$30). Green curry was nicely spiced and coconut-y, and left some sweet undertones which might get a bit jelak after a while. Would gave appreciated slightly more chicken pieces, otherwise the curry went very well with their jasmine rice which was very pillowy and fragrant. Portion of the steamed fish was huge. The meat was tender and easily separated. Sauce came with a good amount of vegetables like brinjal, tomatoes and lady finger. The sauce itself was very flavourful, although the sourness of tomyum could have been enhanced.

Restaurant was not crowded at 12pm on a weekday, with ample space and nice atmosphere to have a relaxing meal and chat. Service was prompt. The dishes are good but in my opinion, did not justify their high price points. I would only return with the 50% discount!

Houjicha ice cream had a intense burnt flavour which complemented the light palate of the hokkaido milk ice cream well. Former had a chewy and creamy texture whereas the latter was disappointingly, icy occasionally. Both were $5.80 but the portion for the milk ice cream was slightly smaller. Iced matcha latte was da bomb. When drunk on it's own, the top matcha layer was very gao and nicely foamed. A beauty is born upon mixing with the silky milk layer and the volume was well worth the ~$5.

Would have liked to be transported back to ancient Japanese times and sip on nice tea while absorbing the good vibes from the pretty pottery around but bustling chatter from the crowd reminded me that I was sadly still in Singapore.

Broke the bank but also sealed its place in my heart as the best Unagi restaurant yet. Got the Unatama don (~$22++) which came with 3 meagre but decadent chunks of unagi. Unagi was a bomb of textures and flavours: Crisp and tender; Sweet and savoury. Japanese grain was authentic and tamago had great texture and was not too sweet. Portion was objectively a bit small but just right for someone who just had dessert. Would definitely come here again, but only on the rare self-care days.
