The 30-seater restaurant gives omakase in addition to ala-carte sashimi and sushi choices and comforting rice bowls. Substances fluctuate relying on the season and are usually sourced on the peak of their freshness.
I not too long ago dropped by to strive Unkai Sushi’s S$68++ omakase. The worth vary is a welcome addition to the vary of omakase choices in Singapore.
The 8-courses begins with two delectable seasonal appetizers to whet the urge for food
This was adopted by two sorts of seasonal sashimi. On the time of my go to, the sashimi consisted of tuna and sea bream.
A chawanmushi of the week warms issues up with silky clean egg custard. This was a luxed up model of chawanmushi topped with pleasant ikura.
The 4th course was a gindara miso yaki of clean black cod flippantly seared with a contact of miso. The sablefish possessed a buttery texture and shortly disintegrated in my mouth.
The sushi course comprised of three seasonal sushi, utilizing premium high quality Japanese rice seasoned with a novel mix of umeboshi vinegar. We had buttery otoro fatty tuna stomach, candy and creamy hotate scallop and a fragile and tender shiromi kinmedai (golden eye snapper).
The menu culminates with a mini chirashi don (extra $38 to improve to a magic bowl) presenting a treasure trove of diced seafood on a mattress of rice. The one we had above was the magic bowl and as a substitute of various diced sashimi, we had decadent servings of fatty tuna and ikura topped with a plop of uni in a mini bowl. We had been suggested to combine every little thing up which resulted within the creamy uni embedding into the rice. This was so good and I’d not thoughts an everyday model of this to have for lunch or dinner.
The final course earlier than dessert was a bowl of heart-warming miso soup.
Lastly, the meal is rounded up on a candy notice with ice cream dessert. On the time of our go to, it was matcha ice cream.
