The chosen destination for the night was Mitsuba by Yurine Japanese Restaurant at 6 Eu Tong Sen Street #03-88 The Central @ Clarke Quay, Singapore 059817, and the contact number is 6227 0388. This restaurant is the third one opened by Chef Peter, and boosts of a lovely, enchanting interior, resplendent of both traditional Japanese design combined with sleekness of western touch.
We loved the setting already, stepping into the lovely interior of this sleek restaurant set against the Singapore River, offering breathtaking views that alleviates enjoyment of the meal itself. Whether for business meals, intimate meals between couples or gastronomical treats between friends, this place embraces all patrons warmly.
Once settled, we ordered our food and drinks, discussing our chill-out location after dinner.
The polite service crew brought our dinner to the table shortly.
We started with Jellyfish - spicy, crunchy, chewy strips of tender jellyfish that set our teeth and tongue singing in merriment. Squishy, and thicker than the usual fine strands served in some other Japanese restaurants, this tiny plate of appetiser was snapped up within seconds.
Then the main course came - and all of us chose the same item coincidentally - Salmon and Swordfish Sashimi Rice (Don). Well, perhaps this shows that great minds choose alike, or friends of the same (great) taste flock together!
Look at the fresh, lovely hues of the raw slices of fish atop the rice. To our utmost delight, the food tasted every bit as tasty as it looked. The sashimi was fresh - bouncy in taste, rightly flavored with the metallic sweetness of fish, and thick, succulent. We relished every bite in delight.
Each of us spent SGD$30.00 on the meal here, singing praises, and would come back for more.
