Ended the meal with a hot cup of hojicha that totally helps to cleanse our palate & allowing us to enjoy the yummy coffee jelly dessert & ice cream, which came with a candle for a birthday celeb! ๐Ÿฅณ โฃ

๐Ÿค๐Œ๐š๐ณ๐ž๐‚๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐š๐ฌ๐ก๐ข ($42)- Sushi rice topped with mixed sashimi cubes. I truly enjoyed every mouthful of sashimi in this bowl! They were super fresh & I just canโ€™t get enough of the uni, scallops & salmon belly๐Ÿคค u see me so focused while eating, digging & digging for more๐Ÿ˜โฃ

Highlight of the evening has got to be the ๐„๐›๐ข ๐“๐š๐ซ๐ญ๐š๐ซ ๐’๐š๐ง๐๐จ ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿฅช- its so yummy!!! Look at that ultra thick ebi katsu 100% handmade using Black Tiger Prawns๐Ÿคฉ Sandwiched between two slices of Hokkaido milk toast & eaten together with the homemade tartar sauce, it was so homely & good๐Ÿ’• Reminded me of a home-made sandwich dish that I had during a farm visit in Hokkaido๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ตโฃ
โฃ
Oh yes, & special mention to 2 of their izakaya sides- ๐’๐š๐ค๐ฎ๐ซ๐š ๐„๐›๐ข ๐Š๐š๐ค๐ข๐š๐ ๐ž & ๐‚๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง ๐Š๐š๐ซ๐š๐š๐ ๐ž, they are the best sides to pair with the mains or a good drink ๐Ÿปโฃ

Shrimp+ Tonkotsu Ramen lovers, you are in for a treat as their ramen broth uses a combination of both Pork bone & Ebi boiled for hours to give its unique taste! Hereโ€™s what we tried: โฃ
โฃ
๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐œ๐ฒ ๐“๐จ๐ค๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ž๐ข ๐’๐š๐ฉ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐จ ๐„๐›๐ข ๐“๐จ๐ง๐ค๐จ๐ญ๐ฌ๐ฎ ๐‘๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง- Served with 2 tiger prawns ๐Ÿฆ & sakura ebi tempura flakes, I like it that the prawn broth was distinct but not too strong & could still bring out the flavour of the tonkotsu base. They have a non-spicy option but the spicy option worked well for me by adding that layer of shiokness๐Ÿ˜†โฃ
โฃ
๐๐ข๐ซ๐ข๐ค๐š๐ซ๐š ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐œ๐ข๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฌ๐จ ๐‘๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง- tasted as its named, itโ€™s spicy๐ŸŒถ I like it that the aromatic black garlic oil flavour oozes out 1st before the spiciness comes as an aftertaste! Try it if u r up for a hot experience๐Ÿ˜ฌโฃ
โฃ
๐“๐จ๐ค๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ž๐ข ๐‡๐จ๐ค๐ค๐š๐ข๐๐จ ๐“๐จ๐ง๐ค๐จ๐ญ๐ฌ๐ฎ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฌ๐จ ๐‘๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง- never a fan of miso ramen even during my stay in Japan, but i like the use of sweet corn in their rendition, making the soup base really fragrant๐Ÿ˜—โฃ

Didnโ€™t have to wait too long when we arrived 15mins before its opening & could enter as the first batch of customers on a Friday๐ŸŽ‰
โฃ
Got a chance to take the counter seats & witness the live grilling๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ definitely not for the faint-hearted, for even I canโ€™t take staring at the raw & slightly bloody eels for too long๐Ÿ˜ฑCould only raise my head up and take a proper snap when the chef posed with the cooked fish! โœŒ๐Ÿปโฃ

Being the recipient of the Michelin Bib Gourmand 2019 & having such highly raved reviews, I had quite high expectations of it. Overall, I must say its still a nice bowl to satisfy my craving after so longโ˜บ๏ธ
โฃ
Heard that their wasabi is freshly grated and I can stand by it, because I really think their wasabi is one of the best in all the Jap restaurants here. Not too pungent but delicate enough to spice up the dish๐Ÿฑ โฃ
โฃ
As for the unagi itself, I am not sure if it was just my serving, but the outside tasted more sticky than how it is supposed to be crispy๐Ÿ˜ถ Not sure if it was because they spread too much of the dark sauce. I was also hoping that they can slice it thicker, so that you can taste the succulent meat more distinctly! Apart from that, they are still highly addictive, & thatโ€™s when u always wish thereโ€™s more fish than rice in such a dish๐Ÿ’•โฃ

Price: $35 per serving
