It was such a wonderful evening where we just caught up, ate and drank. Thank you for the wonderful treat and for bringing us here to sample Chef Keisuke's Omakase.

'Tis' the season now. Instead of serving it in sushi form, Chef Keisuke served it slightly marinated. He told us mix it all up and enjoy. It was yummy! Reminded me of a breakfast I had in Tsukiji where a fellow elderly Japanese diner offered me some iwashi which was served in this manner.

I asked my Japanese friend who hosted us. It was wafer thin omelette with pickled radish and then eaten with more daikon. So simple but so mind blowingly good. If you like chye poh eggs, you will simply adore this super refined Japanese version. This was a sharing portion for two.

This was heavenly. The portions here for the omakase were generous. For small eaters, this may be too much. With a cup of warm sake, this was yummylicious

The other appetiser in the tiny bowl was quite unusual. It was roe but I didn't get the precise description as I was too busy catching up and chatting away.

No, it wasn't fish but raw beef sliced up really thin and served with a really light and delicious dressing. We were like Wow!

Life is all about balance and God does send me nice surprises. After a rough day, a friend rang me and told me impromptu that they were going for an Omakase dinner and I'm in for a treat. After being royally late for about an hour (yes, they waited that long for me), we were greeted by this.

A must have when you're drinking Sake here. We usually have steamed edamame, served lightly salted. But this bowl of beauty, is lightly stir-fry with garlic and oil. And the end result, is a nice slight charred edamame, bursting with garlicky flavour and saltiness. So addictive and definitely wetting your appetite for more food and drinks.

Grilled Black Pork Cheek with Wafu Sauce.
Pork is juicy and melts in the mouth, great combination with the egg! The sauce goes very well with the rice, i wished there's a little more sauce on the rice.

A casual bistro bar at the corner of Orchard Central. Few tables seating too. Nice ambience. If you're indoor, you'll get to see the Chef grilling the food. While for outdoor, you'll get to people watch.

Not a lot of selection on menu like some Japanese restaurant. This is something i like as they're focused on the few signatures items. Love to be back for more.

This has crabmeat, innards and roe all mixed into that creamy paste there, then topped with more crabmeat, ikura and a quail egg.
Strong briny taste here with a subtle sweetness, and definitely very crabby. Half way through this, I beat the quail egg into the paste to enhance its taste and consistency. It was really salty though, so it works better as a side dish if you're having their chirashi or foie gras wagyu don.

Food and drink enthusiasts would be thrilled to find 5 informative workshops at the OC Food Festival. From chocolate to extra virgin oil and balsamic vinegar appreciation, I had a great time particularly at the sake food pairing workshop!

[Left to Right]

1. Sake & Butter-Steamed Japanese Clam paired with the refreshingly elegant Honjozo Yamadanishiki, also known as the "King of Sake Rice".

2. Grilled Jumbo Scallop paired with the Junmai Daiginjo that has a nice influenza tea ginjo fragrance.

3. Miso-Glazed Eggplant paired with the more refined, fragrant and intricate Junmai Nigori.

Located on the ground floor of Orchard Central, the OC Food Festival is ongoing till 14 August 2016. Email your details and preferred workshop to [email protected] should you wish to participate.

This was a hosted event by Orchard Central; many thanks to Whistler Wine & Spirits for conducting the Sake Food Pairing Workshop and Saffron Communications for the invitation!

One of my favourite foods, I'll always choose scallop if I see it on the menu. Love the fact that you can add extra toppings, from rich Foie Gras to Uni or even Mentaiko Cheese! It's like build-your-own-scallop! Delicately flavoured with light sauce, we were lucky enough to try this with Dassai Junmai Daiginjo 50 sake—which I wouldn't mind having again for it's sweet, fruity flavour. A good sake for noobs like myself.
