Visit to Tatsuya...

...left us both gasping for more... ^.^ from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, the familiar smell of being in Japan hit our nostalgia glands and instantly, we were transported back to the delicious eateries in Osaka and Tokyo... apart from the mix of Japanese/ English spoken by the staff, we were mesmerised totally by the magic of this place.

I have always wanted to come try the food here after reading Imp's gastronomical accounts of the delicious authentic Japanese food here... and decided to bring Ms Clover for a little Omakase meal on Saturday evening. The presentation of the food, the freshness of the sashimi (okie, it's still not as fresh as we expected coz we had super fresh sashimi from Tsuikiji Market before but this is really the closest we can get to getting top-notch Japanese food) and the service quality of the staff.

I'll just let the pics from the Ricoh GrD whet your appetite a bit:

*I know I once mentioned that I will NEVER touch Uni (Sea Urchin) or Wasabi in Singapore but I just have to try it here and it certainly didn't disappoint although seriously, I can still taste the difference in freshness. At least, I'm comforted that they have freshly grated wasabi which complimented the entire meal :)

The experience left us wanting more and of coz, a much lighter wallet but I must say, it's all worth the experience! We will definitely return for the lunch bentos as well!

* got an sms from Tatsuya (Ronnie) this morning on thanking us for patronising them... wonderful service this is!

I went to Tatsuya on imp's recommendation also, but I think the intricacies of the offerings were lost on my uneducated tastebuds. 8p
