The Flying Squirrel is a hidden treasure in the beart of bustling CBD area, a hole-in-the-wall Japanese gastrobar restaurant with a side entrance from the alley of Amoy Street shophouses.
Dimly intimate and darkly elegant with a lovely bar counter, the cosy restaurant serves up Japanese-inspired dishes tossed with touches from Melbourne, New York and Singapore. Service was impeccable as well, with thoughtful crew wearing lovely smiles throughout.
I sipped a glass of Chardonnay while browsing their menu, having a hard time deciding what to eat. There were lunch bento sets comprising of sashimi, vegetables or curry; as well as a huge variety of sushi items to choose from (no easy feat!)
Eventually, we made our choices. The beautiful Sashimi Bento Set (SGD$26.00) included a piping bowl of Miso Soup, refreshing Salad, Japanese Rice, Fruits and best of all, good assortment of Sashimi. The platter of raw fish consisted of salmon, white fish, shrimp, tuna and squid etc.
I had the Summer Chirashi Bento Set (SGD$25.00), made up of sashimi-laden bowl with Japanese Rice; served with Miso Soup, Salad and Fresh Fruit.
The raw fish was fresh and firm in texture, bouncing ever so gently upon teeth's clamp. We enjoyed our palatable lunch greatly and would be happy to return for more.
