Highly recommended for their sushi

Reservation was made 1 week in advance for 2 for a weekday evening. And of the 5 seating areas available (sushi, teppanyaki, robatayaki, ramen & dining and bar), I requested for sushi counter seats.

Upon arriving at Hide Yamamoto, we could see the robatayaki counter behind the glass shop front. And to get to the sushi counter, the staff led us past the dining area, the teppanyaki counter and through a short corridor. The short journey to the secluded sushi counter made us feel like we were being led to VIP seats. Ha.

Although we were seated at the sushi counter, we could order anything from the menu. Just that if we were to order a dish from the teppanyaki menu, we won’t get to see the (teppanyaki) chef in action. Duh.

And from the menu (pages 123456), we ordered:-

1) Seasonal tasting course, $168 comprising of:-

(A) Homemade soba noodle with caviar

(B) Seasonal 7 kinds of appetizers from sushi counter

(C) Chawanmushi – Truffle egg flan with fresh sea urchin and snow crab. Upon served, the staff told us to mix it well before eating as the crab was right at the bottom. And just as we were about to tuck in, our friendly (sushi) chef Alfred told us to be careful cause it was going to be hot. And indeed, the bowl was hot. Haha. This was really good. Can’t think of a better combination with my favourite uni, crab and truffle.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here:PART2

It was an enjoyable dinner. While everything tasted good, it was the sushi which stood out for us. Now, I am not exactly a sushi person. I prefer sashimi over sushi since I try to skip on my carb(ohydrates). Haha. But the sushi prepared by chef Alfred Liew were so good. Especially the botan shrimp sushi. I kid not when I say my girlfriend and I were left speechless after every bite of our sushi-s. We would be nodding our heads and going “Mmm!!!” That good.

So in light of their well-executed sushi, I would strongly recommend coming for Hide Yamamoto’s weekday lunch if one can. They have really affordable lunch set menu with options of $48, $68 and $88 for the nigiri sushi.

And we were taken good care of by sushi chef Alfred Liew. He often checked on us although we were too shy to make conversations. Haha. I mean, to sit counter seats, it’s also to interact with the chefs. Right? And it was very nice of chef Alfred as he advised us not to order too much (else we wouldn’t be able to finish the food) when we were ordering additional orders for sushi through him. And he was correct. It was a good thing we heeded his advise and not go for third round of sushi cause when the chicken came, we were so full!

Hide Yamamoto, it’s definitely a restaurant I will recommend. With a bottle of sake, my girlfriend and I spent $260 (after service charge and GST) each which we felt was reasonable for the wonderful dining experience we had.

It was a return visit for dinner since we were craving for some decent Japanese food and it had been a while since our last visit to Hide Yamamoto.   Booking a few days in advance notched us the elusive round sofa seat, which on hindsight, wasn't a great choice as it was situated directly below an air conditioning vent. And we spent a good part of our dinner shivering.   Chawanmushi Black Truffle Flan with Fresh Sea Urchin - The chawanmushi boasted a silky smooth texture with truffle undertones in every spoonful. Topped with a fresh piece of sea urchin, it was just sublime. Portion sizes are a tad small so do order another one if you are a fan.    Tiger Prawn & Tamago Sushi - Sweet and crunchy prawn served atop fluffy, not too sticky rice with a mild vinegar aftertaste and a spot of wasabi in the centre. Nice and simple. Ditto the tamago sushi as well. A sizable piece of mildly sweet tamago towering over a bed of excellent sushi rice.    Sea Scallop with Spinach and Butter Soy Sauce - The scallop was huge and the buttery taste gave it a very western slant whilst the saltiness of the soy sauce yanked it towards an eastern orientation. Interestingly good but not exactly mind blowing for $20++ a pop.     Teppanyaki Wagyu Sirloin - Done up medium as per my request, the wagyu (100g) clocked in a fat to meat ratio of about 30-70 with the meat tender and flavourful, albeit a tad too salty for my liking. Certainly not the best I've tried but decent enough. Served up with awesome crisp garlic chips and vegetables. Not too sure if its worth the $98++ though.    Snow Crab and Mushroom Claypot Rice with Ankake Sauce, Truffle Flavour - Served on a hot plate with the sauce mixed in separately (a little like Pepper Lunch), the rice was moist and plump with a nicely savoury, mild truffle aftertaste. Topped with copious amounts of succulent and sweet snow crab. Pretty nice!    Seafood Miso Ramen - One of the reasons we wanted to return to Hide Yamamoto - the awesome ramen, which is apparently made from a 110 year old recipe. Alas, it wasn't as good as we remembered it to be. The ramen was al dente but the broth did seemed a little too diluted. And this time round, the sweet corn failed to lift it up with its mild sweetness. The seafood (tiger prawn, scallop) was fresh though.   One other comment. I have no idea why the wait staff hesitated in serving us the ramen in parallel with the claypot rice. I was having the rice while my wife was having the ramen so it wasn't cool that we had to chase them for the ramen.     Apart from the chawanmushi, dinner wasn't exactly memorable. And it certainly wasn't cheap either, at $260 for two (diluted green tea @ $9++/pax. Seriously?). Food quality seems to have taken a dip and even the once great ramen has fallen from the peak. Would I return? Probably not.   See all my pictures here

I tried many expensive japanese restaurant in Singapore and this one is the best by far. i went there many times and it was always perfect except one time at the sushi bar. The guy who was taking care of us was young and unexperimented. at the end, for a future reservation, i asked the name card of the guy who made the sushi for us before. I didn't try to make a reservation like that yet. I don't know if it's possible.
