mikuni a favourite destination for me.
i wanted to try the autumn matsutake bento set, so today 3 of us came for lunch on 20.9.2015. ^^
it’s F1 race day, so many roads were closed. i googled and saw that bras basah road entrance to raffles city was open & also i could returned by beach road in the direction to middle road which was also opened.
i drove through orchard road with some traffic, but overall it was perfect. & carpark was empty.
it’s a pine mushroom set, so every dish had some matsutake. 🙂
it was ok.
sashimi was excellent! chutoro & hotate were fantastic cuts.
chutoro really melt in the mouth & hotate had incredible bite. kampachi were very sweet too. wish they gave more uni, haha! 🙂
tempura was lovely. chestnut really nice.
matsutake has a bit of woody? mushroom flavour. daughter didn’t like it so much.
teppanyaki sea bream seemed to be the dry treated type like many japanese fish including salmon & cod. you get them in japan a lot, in bentos, restaurants, supermarts.
i liked it but not so favourite for wife & daughter.
the snow crab legs were excellent.
& the kagoshima wagyu was sublime! ^^
there’s some mustard seeds/sauce. i put a bit of wasabi on the beef also. just so wonderful. 🙂
it felt like not the very chargrilled preparation. wonder if i can do this. google a bit & see.
i normally don’t particularly fancy kamameshi as i used to think they tasted average until i had very good tasty kamameshi at sun with moon @ wheelock.
this one here though was very average.
panna cotta was very good! great texture & bite.
daughter though was still thinking of the panna cotta at pizzeria balognett at tremezzo lake como, but i think this was very good already. 🙂
with amex FAR (feed at raffles) privileges, the 7-course set was S$60++pax, very good deal i feel!
