Ichiban boshi, Singapore



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.

  3. I think that is a large amount of food for the money, good value! Everything looks so good. I can't believe that you had room for dessert!

    Yes the tempura ice cream was rather unusual but a bit too sweet.

    Didn't have time for high tea. Would keep that in mind when I pop over next.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
