bought early birthday lunch for a close friend today at mikuni on 27.4.2015. ^^
they do not serve the grand tour tasting menu for lunch. for simplicity & ease i ordered the premium bento “miyabi” from the lunch set menu.
we had the usual prawn crackers to start, and for the bento, a salad, simple & quite nice.
the sashimi that came with the set was quite good standard – with toro, hotate & salmon.
the tempura here was quite ok standard, but not my favourite.
the kagoshima wagyu robatayaki was good, nicely marbled & tasty.
& there was a very good quality grilled cod.
the simmered veg side dish was ok to complement the lunch course & meat dishes.
& there was an unagi don & a clear soup.
dessert was nice.
this friend is quite busy guy & i don’t get to spend much time with him except during chinese new year. so it was a very good lunch talking about family, children, his work etc.
the food at mikuni is always pretty ok. however the premium bento “miyabi” at S$120pax (even with 50% discount to S$60pax) was to me below par. e.g.-
not everything is directly comparable of course…we were more interested to catch up & did not pay much attention to the menu, but they must have changed the menu as we did not get the golden prawns & bara chirashi. maybe i will write to mikuni to ask about it.
