a japanese izakaya with more modern european food. anyway japanese does all the french & italain food very well & french desserts too.

pork jowl was among the best dishes for me this evening!

really so good, so tender & smooth & flavourful, will order 2 next time. 🙂

wife liked the mussel pot a lot.

& it was very good.

mussels were the small french ones & very tender & sweet, not the large local ones. i asked & server said about 500g for the serving. i think about S$34.

the gravy or almost like a very tasty veloute (soup) was excellent.

it didn’t wow me as much though as i thought it was very competent but not special, certainly i have had this before equally good in other places.

ika sugatayaki - grilled whole squid - really good!

ika sugatayaki – grilled whole squid – really good!

the ika sugatayaki (definitely japanese) wowed me a lot though.

it was really very good. the excellent flavours with bbq, slight sweet & great texture.

wonder how i can do this.

i experimented on this dish a few years back, none too successful, and miles from this wonderful dish. lol!

grilled cauliflower

grilled cauliflower

grilled cauliflower always very good in many places including indian restaurants. a great complement to the savoury dishes.

grilled grass fed ribeye

my youngest daughter was greatly enamoured by the australian grass fed ribeye.

for me it was quite mediocre la! so on this dish our opinions vary widely.

the cooking, grilling, beef sauce condiments, salad all great, but the quality of beef was mediocre, so it was tough, has residue (connective issues) & way below any good beef.

any of my tagliata would be far better than this

of course i used mostly 150day grain fed balck angus ribeye, sometimes 400day grain fed wagyu 3/4 or 6/7.

but even my grass fed black angus ribeye is better. black angus quality of meat quite different la…

so for me, this dish ranked second from bottom after the cauliflower, not including dessert. of course i am talking here about ranking among all great dishes!

crabmeat linguine

crabmeat linguine

crebmeat linguine for me a competent dish, no more…

i have had equally good if not better crab linguine or other good wine sauce or creamy pastas in other restaurants, even say a place like alfresco gusto.

so this was ok but not overly impressive for me.

wife liked it a lot, so manybe i should try it again. a lot of crabmeat & good canned crabmeat very ex.

carbonara

carbonara

the carbonara was very good. it’s not among our preferred pastas so we seldom order this.

so in a way this impressed though as a pasta dish it was not better than the crabmeat linguine which i still prefer.

complimentary griled mentaiko lobster

& here it is the complimentary grilled mentaiko pasta.

it was very good! the grilling was very well done, lobster meat cooked just right, not overdone, bouncy, plump & tasty.

reminded me of ash & elm’s lobster.

ash & elm’s of course better, fine dining standard la…

creme caramel with ice cream

creme caramel with ice cream

wife & i not much into desserts, but this evening she fancied the creme caramel with ice cream. daughter said becos there was liquor in it. lol! ^^

for me the lobster, pork jowl & ika sugatayaki were the best dishes!

the oysters, mussels, crabmeat linguine were good too…

dinner still came to about S$350 i think for 5pax, including a sake wife ordered. the place not cheap la…but maybe ok if go for food only.

anyway, a very enjoyable family dinner. 🙂
