Last month, I had the a pleasant surprise while dinning at this nondescript restaurant. From the excellent environment and keen service, I felt my needs were taken care of.

We started off with their crispy pork crackling which comes served with a salsa mix of sarsiado & guindilla peppers. Their crackling was prepared well with a crispiness that I would describe as light and non-dense. I believed that much prepared with much care from the choice of skin till drying it. Its non greasy taste also supposed the fact that it was probably baked or air-fried. (*me trying to justify my unhealthy choice)

We decided to order the Meadsmoore cut which consists of 3 different cuts of Australian 2GR Wagyu beef. We like the fact that we were able to try out different cuts of meat without over-ordering. It was enough for me and my fiancée. The meat was well executed with a nice layer of salt to bring out the natural flavour of the meat cut without being overwhelmingly salty.

I must also point out that the restaurant puts much care into ensuring that the customer have a good dining experience from the provision of small individual sachets of mouth wash made available next to the basin.

We will make our way back here again if we are around the area and treat ourself to a good steak meal!

I walked past Miraku many times but wasn’t sure what they served exactly. Taking the opportunity provided by the lull work period, I decided to give it a try.

I ordered their Sushi Omakase set and was served a delectable combination of Edomae style sushi. It was a 12 course dinner set that was executed well despite the simplicity of the menu.

It was my first time trying the Murasaki Uni which is a type of Shiron Uni (White Uni). While not as great looking as its Aka Uni (Red Uni) cousins, food should be judged based on their taste rather than their looks. I was surprised by the interesting ast profile of the Uni. Its combination of sweetness coupled with a tinge of umami taste reminds me of eating it fresh off the beds of the sea. It is about as fresh as you could get; short of you getting to Japan.

The amazing thing is that you don’t really taste the taste of the pungent smell that you would get from cheaper Uni.The Ootoro was another amazing piece. For once, it is not veiny like what you would get from the sushi chain outlets.

The chef would check in with us how we found each pieces of sushi and I could tell he took it to heart when he came back with sushi that had rice that was firmly packed after my feedback that the rice felt a little too loosely packed.

The meal ended with a Hokkaido strawberry ice-cream which, to my pleasant surprise, was more like a gelato in taste and texture. All in all a good experience that is worth visiting.
