After a well-rested night and a sumptuous but simple breakfast at the Ibis Styles Sapporo Hotel, Brian and I set off for the Sapporo Beer Museum.

Enjoying my return visit to Syun @ Resorts World Sentosa!

My initial visit to Syun at the Resorts World Sentosa in the beginning of the year left me with a very memorable impression. Chef Hal Yamashita’s culinary style with quality and fresh ingredients that is both clean tasting and flavourful was a good draw for me to make a return trip with my mum. This time round, in addition to Chef’s specialty of Uni with Kuroge Wagyu Beef Roll topped with Caviar,  I also ordered the Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki with Sea Urchin – one dish that I’ve heard frequently about. My experience? Another memorable visit that leaves me wanting to savour more of Chef’s cuisine. […]

Be Seduced And Take A Break With The $138++ Omakase From Ikyu Japanese Restaurant!

After taking a break with a very satisfying Omakase lunch at Ikyu Japanese Restaurant, I was certainly keen to get started writing this article and sharing the delights of the meal with everyone. The 11-course Omakase meal features a glimpse of Executive Chef Takuma Seki’s (formerly Chef de Cuisine at Marina Bay Sands’ Hide Yamamoto Japanese Restaurant) ingenuity on bridging quality ingredients at reasonable prices. With traditional delights like Chutoro, Uni, Miyazaki Wagyu Grade A4 appearing on my menu, I was certainly pleased by the range of ingredients harmonised together for a unique experience that is certainly different from the regular. And with this course appearing for an attractive price of $138++, I am definitely seduced for a return visit.  […]
