had lovely 4pax dinner with SMM & B @ akira back 19.4.2021.^^
chef akira back is Korean, grew up in aspen colorado USA, professional snowboarder for 7 years….
the set dinner wasn’t interesting like before, so we decided to go ala carte instead. 🙂
the tuna and crepes mushroom thin pizza was excellent as before. they allow a combo version and that was enough for 4pax appetiser.
we ordered the miso eggplant with mozzarella first tie. it was excellent too. good.. I can improve my miso glazed eggplant.
we ordered 4 mains to share = 2 portions of halibut and 1 portion of ji dori chicken and 1 portion of F1 wagyu.
halibut was excellent, and it was from akira previously that I replicated my own pangrilled halibut on soy beurre blanc sauce.
likewise the jidori chicken on truffle mash was tender and delicious, something I replicated as well (sous vide 75degC 1 hr and pangrilled).
the 350days grain fed F1 wagyu was underwhelming, especially after having the best ohmi wagyu at 8picure several times…
F1 is only 50% Jap wagyu, but I find that Lisa and sulin’s homecooked USDA prime or even just grain fed black angus are as good or better…
we selected our own sushi moriawase from the ala carte menu-aburi otoro, uni, akami, hamachi and unagi, I think about S$90.
sushi of course fresh and sweet…we think though can get much better value at kuirya dining…
had a great dinner conversation and sharing with this friend couple.
