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.

    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.

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
