Decided to head down to this new spot to try out the dinner menu
The chefs according to Timeout had stints in Tetsuya and all
Home made Sour Dough with butter
Salmon tartar, kaiso salad & ponzu dressing
Miso Eggplant, shimeji escabeche & Jerusalem artichoke chips
For mains, we had:
Rangers Valley grain fed striploin, fries and mesclun salad
Hokkaido scallops, crab tortellini & cauliflower puree
Grilled Kurobuta pork collar, grapes & sucrine lettuce
Verdict: 3/3 of us will return!
Apart from the noisy environment where even though we were sitting next to each other, we couldn’t hear ourselves, I really thought the food was pretty up to expectations.
Appetizers were very different from the usual kinds, and the combinations complimented each other very well.
Mains were all executed well.
To me, a good steak is defined as it can be eaten without any sauce. And this cut of the meat, where it is quite lean and little fats to keep the steak juicy, it does require quite a fair bit of skill to keep it at a medium rare consistency.
The pork was also good in that it is moist and the accompaniments complimented well.
The crab tortellini was also just nice (although I thought it did looked abit little) in terms of portion size and scallops cooked to perfection.
wanted to stay on for dessert but .. looking at what the other tables had, we just went off somewhere instead.

43 Craig Rd,
ok.. in a rush again before I had my block classes – somehow rush and me go together quite well – that is quite a heavy day .. so i decided to compensate myself and explored around to try something different.. and because I was craving for Spicy tuna sushi!!! yummers ..
So i stepped in this restaurant and try my luck .. ..
See sometimes you just don’t know how to weigh between trying a new restaurant and sticking back to what is familiar to you .. Was feeling quite ‘no pain no gain’ so I decided to try and might land myself pleasant surprise ..
so I ordered myself a spicy tuna roll thinking it will be like what i ate at kaiho .. so very lost in thought and was waiting in excitement .. but what came was :
Spicy Tuna Roll
and I also ordered
Soft Shell Crab handroll
Verdict: Maybe might return . I feel like I ordered the ‘wrong things’ but because I was in a rush, so I figured this might have been the fastest.
The tuna roll : My jaw dropped in the sense I felt like I got ‘slapped out of my imagination’ and ‘reality slapped’ (Don’t mean to exaggerate in my description) .. Where is my aburi parts? where? why is it not what i imagined it to be??? but it was just ok ..
I think the softshell crab handroll on the other hand, is one of the best ones I have eaten in Singapore. The batter of the crab was nice and evenly coated, as well as, when it came, it was not like .. in some places, the softshell crab handroll, because the crab is fried on the spot, sometimes it makes the seaweed that wraps it go soft from the condensation of heat from the roll? but this sushi chef cleverly used a roll of lettuce before placing the fried crab on the rice ; My seaweed did not go all soft and soggy. 🙂 Will come back for this! 🙂
