Akashi

Another chirashi post.

First time i tried the famed otoro, which is tuna belly. Its has a texture similar to beef marbled with fat.. and yes, it does taste heavenly.

The serving is extremely small and pricy, but each piece of sashimi was lightly seared and still retained their original texture and is paired with their own individual sauce and ingredients.

Every single bite was flavorful, tender, and juicy. Each type of seafood was unique in flavor, i really can’t describe how beautiful everything tasted. It was like having a medley of complimenting flavors dancing on my tastebuds, and that was mind blowing.

Even the short grained rice was very well done. The texture was firm to the bite but still soft and fluffy. Paradoxical description, i know.😅

Supply & Demand

A very charming restaurant with good food and ambiance. Tried their Tiramisu, Hawaiian pizza, prawn spaghetti , roast chicken and New York cheesecake. I must mention that their cheesecake is different from anything I’ve tasted before. The texture was crumbly and it has a milk powder-like quality to it. 🙂

Tonkichi + Art of Love

Yesterday was a women’s only excursion. My aunties, grandmother and I went out to lunch downtown. We had Japanese.

Tonkichi is a restaurant famous for their tonkatsu and crazy queues even before their doors are open for business. Grandma had the Kurobuta Kata Rosu set, which is basically the black pork. My aunts chose the Yakubari (Pork  fillet, oysters, crab croquette) and cheese Kasane Katsu ( Pork fillet with cheese right in the middle) respectively. I had plain old deep fried chicken though. Haha. Anyways, the food was pretty good, comparable to Tonkatsu by Ma Maison at the Mandarin Gallery.

Sasame seeds. We were supposed to grind it up using the stick, then mix in the tonkatsu sauce. It is for dipping.

This is the Chicken Tonkatsu.

We then went for tea at a coffee joint nearby. Took a photo of the retro looking tiles they had. The picture is rather skewed as I only had time to snap a fast one. =p

Frothy milk tea, just the way I like it.

+ Butter and Kaya toast! This is extremely fattening.

Also went to get some bath products from L’occitane. I love their lavender series!

Recently, Mediacorp has been putting up some art films labeled Art of Love, on their website, sponsored by the National Arts Council. I particularly like one of their 2 part episodes, which is kind of related to my field of work. These visually attractive, fast paced 10 minute clips with their slightly moody background music really draw me in and tugs at my heartstrings.
