had early anniversary dinner with wife at maru 丸 at icon village 12 gopeng street on 31.5.2018. ^^
the bar restaurant offers various promotions that look quite interesting…
excellent food & value.
we took the special 8-course mini kaiseki 1 for 1 S$78 mini kaiseki inc free 250ml sake 👍some more…
& the sake was good standard. this alone would cost like S$18 easily..
the appetizer plate included a tuna ceviche, marinated octopus & edamame.
the tuna was very good…the octopus was tough…edamame the usual…
not the very large oyster at hachi, but neverthelessthe oyster was very fresh & sweet, not big, quite ok, and came with a tasty tomato sherbet..
sashimi was nothing special, still quite good standard, fresh & sweet.
there were 5 kinds = sashimi – maguro, salmon, amaebi, tai, hamachi, one piece each for the 2 of us… 🙂
the shio (salt) grilled kappa (fish cheeks) very good 👍👍
wife found it slightly fishy, so took only 1/2…i took all of it & her 1/2 piece too. lol!
the aburi sushi & barachirashi don were served together.
the aburi sushi were great…salmon was good & of course anago sushi 👍was special. sauce though was a bit sweet.
the bara chirashi don was ok. fish was fresh though odd cuts letfovers like any bara, the sushi rice not that great.
& there was a #7 soup…it was good too, nice tasty clear soup with asari (la la clams)…
yuzu sorbet lagi shiok!…very flavourful & refreshing. great dessert ite….
a very enjoyable early anniversary dinner with wife…
