So Denny decided to satisfy my tummy at Takeshi-San today. Ordered 1-1 sushi roll : Salmon maki & tempura lobster maki. I love salmon sashimi so I have to get this to try and it didn’t disappoint! In fact it was so good! There were an abundance of ingredients and toppings and the salmon was nicely charred while the tempura maki was not overly deep fried.

We also got Wagyu saikoro cube steak as sides and we can’t stop praising how tender and juicy these beef are! Really enjoyed all the dishes and would 100% recommend

The sashimi is very fresh and the portion is quite generous! Pretty good overall :)

It’s decent!
Too expensive if it’s full priced tho

Sushi platters are purpose built for sharing with family & friends, and @takeshisansg aptly named Gathering Sushi Platter ($48++) is a prime example of a superb sushi platter. Thirty pieces of assorted sushi are arrayed on a large wooden platter, ready for a party of two to four folks to devour.⠀

The sushi you get may vary, but the sushi we got on the Gathering Platter were avocado maki (handroll), good ol’ salmon maki, spicy mayo salmon maki, salmon mayo gunkan, tuna mayo gunkan, and a whole Incredible Hulk sushi roll. The avo & both salmon maki were decent, albeit kinda pedestrian, and the both the salmon and tuna mayo gunkan were excellent. However, the undisputed center of attention was the Incredible Hulk sushi roll, and it certainly deserved the limelight.⠀

The chef at Takeshi-San appears to have an affinity for cream cheese as it’s also present in the Incredible Hulk, along with an enormous ebi tempura, unagi (eel), crab-stick and avocado. Unlike the Fireball, the cream cheese didn’t overpower everything else in the Incredible Hulk. Instead, the prime prawn tempura rightfully took centerstage with its snappy freshness and the terrific tempura batter that encased it. The tempura was airy, crunchy and commendably light on the oil, giving the bouncy, plump prawn a charming crispness that was perfect as the core of the sushi roll.⠀

Although the unagi & shredded crab-stick were lost in the cacophony of flavours & textures, they probably aided in beefing up the satisfaction & volume of the Incredible Hulk. The slices of avocado that blanketed the unagi & crab-stick provided that luscious creaminess that bound everything together. ⠀

While the stellar Incredible Hulk is the main reason for you to smash this platter, the accompanying sushi ain’t no slouches either. With a platter this pleasant, it’s no wonder why everyone’s Gathering at Takeshi-San.

The Fireball Roll from @takeshisansg sounds like something drunk me would throw together at 2am if I were given a fully stocked kitchen. Spicy scallop, crabmeat, cucumber and cream cheese are rolled up tightly in sushi rice, battered and deep fried. Yes, you read that right, this sushi roll is battered and deep fried. I did say it sounds like drunk food made by a drunkard, right?⠀

Surprisingly, despite being deep fried, this maki (sushi roll) was not greasy at all. The tempura batter was a little thicker than expected, but it was still rather airy & crispy. I was eager for the spicy scallop to dazzle me, but unfortunately everything just got buried under the creamy, rich monotony of the cream cheese. Dipping it into the eel sauce mixed with spicy mayo does bring a blast of heat, sweetness & savouriness though, making this otherwise one-dimensional roll a touch more exciting.⠀

Still, when you’re about four double shot highballs deep into the night, Takeshi-San’s Fireball Roll is just the right thing to roll down your gullet.

Now that the surf’s done, turf’s up. The Wagyu Saikoro Cube Steak ($20++) is utter beefy bliss encapsulated in a small, terrifically tender cube. Saikoro steak is usually beef tenderloin that’s been diced into cubes for quick frying, and it apparently means ‘dice’ in Japanese. Tenderloin is already plenty tender, but wagyu tenderloin? ⠀

Oh boy, these little cubes of meaty heaven melt in your mouth like ice cream on a hot day. One kiss is all it takes for a certain singer, but for these beef cubes, one bite is all it takes. The divine cubes of beef are dressed in a ponzu sauce, which slices right through the buttery, beefy, fatty richness of the wagyu and adds zest and even more sapidity to it. These beef cubes are so supremely sublime that a single order ain’t enough to satisfy the need for this divine bovine.
