Bro CCG Bought Nice Japanese Dinner @ En Dining on 25Oct2021

cheow ghee bought dinner @ en dining capital towers on 25.10.2021..thanks bro..^^

https://goo.gl/maps/neeToAmW2Xnb4JjN9

wonderful ambience & very nice evening..

restaurant business quite down..

the wagyu beef surprisingly very good 👍🏻

& the ika karaage great too 👍🏻

the premium sushi set cheow ghee took didn’t come with uni as shown & written in menu

we mentioned to server at first they didn’t know how to react not trained..we didn’t want to escalate so just let it go as F&B everyone having hard time..

later they finally resolved & came back to say they reduce the set to $32 from $40 original ..

so credit to restaurant there was service recovery which I would have insisted in normal times 😃

restaurant also provided a slice birthday cake – tofu cheese cake

had a really good chat & relaxed evening with a close bro..

really enjoyable lunch =https://goo.gl/maps/KukUC7Y6pvEiD6fD9

took $88pax omakase lunch with 50% eatigo discounts at 12pm (for alacarte menu & omakase menu)

fish liver appetiser good

sashimi was good standard 1 otoro & 2 amaebi very fresh & sweet..kampachi tai & hirame average thick cut slight fibrous sinewy…

cooked dish a snapper average more like Singapore snapper with black truffle shavings & japanese ginkyo nuts..

sushi omakase was very good even though no otoro chutoro

but akami lean toro very sweet & all the other fish cuts excellent especially the engawa 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

the soup had asari (lala) a better standard soup

the macha ice cream with mocha and I think Japanese red beans, was great.

we added $28 truffle kampachi…a bit meagre but then had 50% eatigo discounts…don’t really need though…

S$88pax lunch omakase & with 50% eatigo discounts really great lunch..

sashimi platter good standard, otoro, salmon, kampachi, tai..

2 cooked dishes pretty good too..

potato croquette nicely done..the crisp unagi item a bit fishy..still nice..

sushi & mini barachirashi don both good..like the don better..

yuzu jelly was refreshing..

overall a good quality lunch omakase for $68pax..

Exquisite Dinner Every Dish Excellent!@ 8picure on 28Sep2021

had another really shiok, exquisite dinner with lisa @ 8picure on 28.9.2021.^^

every dish simply delicious! 🙂

we took the superb S$108 4-course special set

and added Galician octopus, lobster squid ink pasta and ohmi A4 wagyu for 2pax sharing.

this new set was excellent!

hotate curry cauliflower gazpacho is new, and I recreate this several times myself…love the dish the combination of texture and delicious taste.

the crabmeat tagliolini was good…of course we always love chef Gabriel’s exquisite lobster squid ink pasta better…this the best we had anywhere!

the venison was excellent though not quite fair comparison with ohmi wagyu…but it was really best in its own right…

& the mocha pan cotta…chef Gabriel’s dessert – every single one is good!

& his Galician octopus, one of the best there is!

Exquisite Dishes Too Expensive for me at Omakase @ Stevens on 18Sep2021

had 2pax dinner with lisa at omakase @ stevens on 20.9.2021.^^

https://goo.gl/maps/uDHHWZcHe6AHXync9

8-course dinner no amuse bouche was $280pax & did not include gohan dish so we ordered the recommended donburi at $55 to share..

including 2 sake dinner came to $819 for 2pax.

dishes good standard not really extraordinary so for me not worth the steep price.

first dish gomatofu with uni, ikura, dashi jelly was exquisite enough..excellent presentation, texture & taste..

second dish trio-angler liver a bit plain, sanma was tasty, and wagyu carpaccio wrapped over grilled taro very good

3rd dish hay smoked bonito was very good too..hay smoke was great for presentation not much flavour in fish..the sauce which similar to beurre blanc sauce was tasty & dish overall quite delicious.

4th dish awabi with somen on abalone liver sauce very good too.

5th dish shirako nabe with yuba was wonderful tasting..

wife had hotate to replace shirako which I don’t mind also not my favourite.

6th amadai tile fish with scales was very good too..

7th dish charcoal grilled sumiyaki Kagoshima A5 wagyu was the best dish..excellent marbling & really shiok!

8 the 2 desserts were good standard

the donburi $55 came with choice of grilled wagyu, wagyu tartar, iwashi, oysters or ikura..

we picked wagyu tartar..excellent choice really delicious & quite enough to share for 2pax

overall omakase very good standard, most dishes good ingredients quite delicious more of plain lighter palate and certainly fine in plating & taste..

not really wowed.. nothing to complain in terms of quality just for me not worth the steep price..

more satisfaction at kuriya dining omakase lunch and 8picure..
