We were in Singapore the last weekend for a short visit and had dinner @ this Japanese restaurant ...... 'Ichiban boshi', which was within walking distance from the hotel where we were staying. I was rather impressed with the service as the young waitresses and waiters who served us were very polite and patient with our orders!
We were lucky that we left Singapore on Tuesday otherwise we would be stranded when the floods inundated certain parts of the city state!
Kaisen Salad - Salmon sashimi, tuna sashimi and assorted veggie with Japanese dressing. Both the salmon and tuna were very fresh and the dip was good too ~ S$9.90
Ichiban Gozen - Salmon sashimi, assorted tempura, BBQ set, salmon teriyaki, unagi, chawanmushi, appetizer, rice, miso soup and fruit ~ S$23.50. This was more than enough for the three of us.
Chawanmushi which came with the Ichiban Gozen - soft, smooth and tasty.
Kitsune Udon - Udon with bean curd and fish slice ~ S$8.90. We should have ordered half a portion as we were quite full after tucking in the Ichiban Gozen .
Wagyu Shigureni - Wagyu beef with teriyaki sauce, assorted veggie and shitake mushrooms ~ S$13.90.
I didn't try this as I don't take beef but my other half and daughter gave their thumbs up. They said the beef was tender and simply delicious.
Qyoza - Hot plate Japanese dumpling ~ S$5.90. I always like to order this whenever I have Japanese food and this was good, a bit different from those I've tasted so far, especially the crispy skin.
The finale - Tempura ice cream. Something like the fried ice cream. I didn't quite like this dessert as it was very sweet especially the strawberry sauce, think would be much better minus the sweet sauce.
The total bill came to S$83.45 plus tax for the three of us. Value for money? Dollar for dollar, I think it is.
