My Favourite Restaurant Mikuni on 16Aug2015

mikuni chirashi don

son was back for summer vacation. we were all thinking of having a good chirashi don.

for me the 2 best chirashi don in singapore are at mikuni & also at kuriya dining. so we went to mikuni for 4pax family lunch on 16.8.2015. ^^

salmon, eel & deepfried eel bone

usually we order ala carte but this time there was a very good special unagi course lunch menu at just S$120pax. son went ahead & ordered his chirashi don & added a kagoshima wagyu sukiyaki konabe.

3 of us ordered the set.

with 50% amex FAR (feed at raffles) discounts, the set was S$60pax. if you compare the dishes, this was far superior to the S$68pax GOTO omakase lunch.

the sakizuke(先附) – a selection of small appetizers, was exquisite! ^^

there were 3 salmon wrapped in radish – sweet salmon combined with a cool, juicy radish texture. 🙂 there 2 pieces of eel was superb, very flavourful, and i finished the deep fried eel bone. 🙂

sashimi was one item that attracted us to take the set. we all liked the unagi kabayaki in the set but sashimi was one of the main attraction. 🙂

eel sunomono

the sunomono (vinegared dish) was great too! very nice vinegared eel, ginger flower, tomato etc. 🙂

the unagi kabayaki was a large serving.

if there is one complaint about mikuni, we thought the rice was somehow not as good as (say) kuriya dining!

pickles

pickles

there were the usual pickles that came with a gohan (rice) set. these though were one of the best quality pickles we had. not salty at all & excellent in sweetness & juicy texture. 🙂
