Chikuyotei is known for their Unagi, where fresh Japanese eel is imported from Japan and grilled on premise.
 
I learnt of their Kagoshima & Singapore Food Fair, that is ongoing till mid Nov 2014 and decided to try their special offerings.
 
Dining at the sushi counter has just got better. The restaurant has just replaced their sushi counter from the black granite to Japanese Cypress Wood.
 
The highlights of my meal were:
- Roast Kagoshima Wagyu Beef with Madiera Sauce: The beef is from the shoulder of the cow and was done in a roast beef style. The inside of the sliced beef was pink. Eaten on its own, it was wonderful.
- Grilled Amberjack Fish wrapped in bacon with soya sauce: You can taste the firmness of the fish that is wrapped in bacon. It is more a European than Japanese dish.
- Amberjack Fish Marinated in Seaweed with Shallot Sauce: I loved the dish. The fish was lightly marinated and went very well with the shallot sauce. Must-try!
- Kagoshima Black Pork wrapped with Sukiyaki Croquette: You get a potato core, wrapped in Kurobuta Sukiyaki pork slices then coasted with flour and deep fried. You also get a dressing on the side as a dip.
- Shabu Shabu with fresh vegetables, thinly sliced pork belly and glass noodles: We ordered this ala carte. The platter of Kurobuta Pork Belly and Pork balls comes with a serving of a variety of vegetables – Leek, Lettuce, Tang-Oh, Carrot, Mushrooms and Glass noodles. The dashi (soup base) was made in-house and was good. Not salty and to my dinner group’s liking. We put in the leek, carrot and mushrooms to add flavour to the soup, and cooked the meat after the soup started boiling. Cooking the meat was easy, with a few swishes of the meat in the lightly boiling soup to get it cooked. The meat was finished in quick time. We also added soba noodles after that. The soba noodles were good!
- Japanese 'Porridge': There was still some soup left in the pot and we added a bowl of rice, which we added into the pot to cook ‘Japanese Porridge’. Just before serving, we cracked a slightly beaten egg into the pot and stirred the egg in, before adding chopped spring onions. After scooping individual bowls, we added the loose seaweed for flavour. It was very good. Must-try!
- Japanese fruits - Gifu Persimmon & Niigata Pear with Matcha ice cream and Red Bean Sandwich Puff: The Japanese has a passion for fruits and the fruits go for premium prices in Japanese Supermarkets. I always look forward to having Japanese fruits after a Japanese meal. Both the persimmon and pear were nice and juicy. Presentation was key. They even import the leaf from Japan, that was used on the dessert platter that the persimmon sat on!
 
I enjoyed my meal very much.
 
The Kagoshima promotion is a limited period offer. Try it before it’s over!

Chikuyotei is a casual dining Japanese restaurant that offers quality ingredients in a no-frills dining environment.

At a recent visit, I decided to go with their specialty, the Unagi Course ($198).

The meal started with a palette opener of sour giant octopus tentacle suction pads with a thick sweet sauce finish.

This was followed by a giant clam soup. This was wonderful as the clam was juicy wiht a good burst of seawater flavour.

The sashimi course followed with amaebi (sweet prawn), red snapper and slightly seared tuna with fresh wasabi.

This was followed by half an unagi (eel) which was lightly cooked before a huge bowl of a full unagi (two layers of eel) and rice, which is bound to fill up even the biggest of eaters.

Dessert was a Japanese rock melon.

I also ordered a Tenderloin Yoganyaki ($78), a fatty piece of Kagoshima wagyu cooked on hot stone.

For those who do not like eel, there are other courses available, such as the Tempura Course ($108), which comes with cooked fish, sashimi and the premium giant Japanese prawn as the main show.

Overall, expect quality fare in a casual dining environment.
