Christina and I wandered around the large shopping mall in search of a good Japanese restaurant to satisfy my craving for Japanese food. After checking out a few restaurants, we settled on this one.


I had the Sake set ($16.90++) which consisted of salmon, salad, croquette, miso soup and rice. The salmon slices were served raw as we were supposed to grill them ourselves on the charcoal griller built in at the table. I liked the salmon which were well marinated.
Christina's AUS Niku Moriawase set ($19.90++) was similar to mine except that the choice of meat was beef instead. The menu didn't have any English descriptions detailing the cuts of beef so she had to ask the waiter. The waiter seemed to be very well trained as he rattled off about the different beef sets.

This was the built in griller that supposedly "incorporates a high performance exhaust system that aims at providing diners with a smoke-free dining experience". Both of us were annoyed at the heat emitted from the griller.


Using this type of griller, it's almost always inevitable that the grilled fish ends up with burnt bits. Generally, I tend to avoid this sort of "hands-on" dining since I prefer my food to be prepared by a chef when dining out!

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
