The snapper nigiri draped with a single sliver of shaved black truffle and miniature batons of chive surprised in every category, its exquisite balance of flavours and aromas a festival for the senses.

Our eyes lit up at the sight these pimped up nigiris. Chopped otoro atop maguro was a luxe single bite that I wanted more of.

I expected the Grilled Seasonal Item portion of the omakase to be of the fish variety, and was pleasantly surprised by the large scallop in a half shell presented before us. Sitting in a richly unami miso uni sauce, I was happy they served the scallop with its roe, a delicious part of the shellfish that’s all too often left out or even viewed as undesirable. Unfortunately the scallop itself was slightly overcooked.

The sashimi platter is what I look forward to most in any omakase, and Maru’s definitely has my stamp of approval. Clever little touches abound, such as the spicy zestiness of yuzu kosho salt playing off buttery yellowtail, sweet and salty shio kombu garnished snapper, and a deep-fried crispy prawn head sitting alongside its decapitated body.

Part of the newly introduced Chef’s Table at Maru Dine & Bar, this is an inspired combination of tangy smoked tomato sorbet and creamy, briny oyster. The smokiness came through with an understated assertiveness that I found quite pleasing.

First course of the newly introduced Chef’s Table at Maru Dine & Bar.

We enjoyed the modern touches such as mango gel and pomegranate seeds paired with a white tuna tataki(foreground).

This is a clean tasting white fish without any fishyness. While it can get a tad salty, it's nicely balanced by nori wasabi, orange ponzu jelly, pomegranate, basil and shio kosho.

It had been a long day for me and I had eaten at two other places before this, so I didn't really eat most of the other dishes during this tasting. I have the impression that the dishes are creative and pretty good, so I'll drop by again during lunch one day and give a review of the other dishes served that evening.

with onsen egg, wafu sauce and furikake topping 》$23

While pork jowl fried rice sounds like a interesting fusion, it didn’t turn out to be as good. The pork jowl is tender but fried rice feels a little dry and oily. I would prefer to have white rice where I can pair it nicely with the pork jowl and sauce. It would be good to share this as I feel the portion might be too heavy for 1 pax.

Mentaiko potato and lotus root chips 》$14

This dish arrived with a nice fragrant. Plump juicy mushrooms stuffed with mentaiko mashed potato with crispy lotus root chips for the extra crunch.

Al dente pasta with a rich umami flavour. Look at the portion of ikura! 😍 I can’t wait to pop them in my mouth. Every ingredient from the truffle to ikura and uni complements one another.

Thanks @gnohznaij for extending an Invite and @marusgdinebar for Hosting 😋😋😋😋

Somen topped with sashimi scallops, prawn, ikura, uni and caviar. I would have liked to have the somen firmer but the overall combination of fresh seafood is not difficult to like, although I’ve got to say that it was a pity that the uni flavours were masked by the rest. The somen sauce was lighter, but it wasn’t too big a problem as they serve a small saucer of soy sauce with each portion for you to adjust accordingly.

Thank you @marusgdinebar for having us and @gnohznaij for the invite! 🙇🏻‍♀️
