Japanese cuisine

Post by earthfriendly » Thu, 06 Oct 2005 9:03 am

I love Japanese food, speciifically sashimi and nigiri. Kindly recommend some good resturants that are reasonably priced. I am also interested in Kaiseki ryori.

Are most of the sushi/kaiseki chefs in Singapore certified back in Japan?

Thank you for any suggestion you may offer.

I'm not sure what your 'reasonable price' is ... but here is my suggestion.

There are several good sushi restaurants (comparative speaking, of course): Tatsuya at Crown Hotel, Shiraishi at Ritz Carlton, Yoshida on Devonshire Rd and some more.

Lunch at these places are very reasonable, $30-40, I think.
Dinner can be pricy though.

Amongst three, I like Tatsuya the best. =P~

A bit on the pricey side but Shiro on Greenwood Ave. is pretty good as well as Aoki in Shaw.

For kaiseki, try Kuriya Dining in Great World City.

For affordable general Japanese, Kuriya in Shaw Centre, Shunjyuu in Robertson Quay are my favourites.

I went to Sakae and one (canoot remember name but it is next to the recital hall) on the esplanade. Neither are exceptional but not bad given the price.

One of these days, I would still like to try Kaiseki ryori.

I like Nagae at the Waterfront Plaza (near Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel).

A fulfilling dinner consisting of quality sashimi, sushi and sake cost about $80+++ per person.

for people who wanted to filled their stomach full
as well taste a decent bowl of Ramen then you must
tried ken Ramen at orchard plaza 1st storey where
my hubby used to bring me over there for a simple
and decent meal. He often used to say "kenja Ramen"
is the best, as for me I don't really how to differentiate
how's the original taste goes.

japanese a-la-carte buffet

Post by James** » Wed, 18 Jan 2006 10:52 pm

Try Hanabi at King's Arcade, along Bukit Timah Road after Serene Centre and before Coronation Plaza. They have just opened another branch at Odeon Towers.

Well, this place seems quite crowded most times and it is best to make a reservation. It is is $30++ for adults and kids , 11 and below $18++ for dinner. I have been there a couple of times.

I would say value for money as you eat as much as you want from the menu. Order from sushi ,shashimi, ramen, udon, zaru soba, tempura, chawamushi, handrolls, yakiniku, grilled fish,etc..

:D

There is a Ginza plaza (something like that) in the West Coast where they get sushi flown in from Japan twice a week. I just found out about it and can only try it out on my next visit to motherland (oh really miss SG so much, would cry at night and my daughters too, miss their cousins and grandparents and keep asking me where's kong kong (grandpa) and po po (grandma)). So sad. :-|
