mikuni a favourite destination for me.
i wanted to try the autumn matsutake bento set, so today 3 of us came for lunch on 20.9.2015. ^^
it’s F1 race day, so many roads were closed. i googled and saw that bras basah entrance to raffles city was open & also i could returned by beach road in the direction to middle road which was also opened.
i drove through orchard road with some traffic, but overall it was perfect. & carpark was empty.
it’s a pine mushroom set, so every dish had some matsutake.
it was ok.
sashimi was excellent! chutoro & hotate were fantastic cuts.
chutoro really melt in the mouth & hotate had incredible bite. kampachi were very sweet too. wish they gave more uni, haha!
tempura was lovely. chestnut really nice.
matsutake has a bit of woody? mushroom flavour. daughter didn’t like it so much.
teppanyaki sea bream seemed to be the dry treated type like many japanese fish including salmon & cod. you get them in japan a lot, in bentos, restaurants, supermarts.
i liked it but not so favourite for wife & daughter.
the snow crab legs were excellent.
& the kagoshima wagyu was sublime! ^^
there’s some mustard seeds/sauce. i put a bit of wasabi on the beef also. just so wonderful.
it felt like not the very chargrilled preparation. wonder if i can do this. google a bit & see.
i normally don’t particularly fancy kamameshi as i used to think they tasted average until i had very good tasty kamameshi at sun with moon @ wheelock.
this one here though was very average.
panna cotta was very good! great texture & bite.
daughter though was still thinking of the panna cotta at pizzeria balognett at lake tremezzo lake como, but i think this was very good already. :-)
with amex FAR (feed at raffles) privileges, the 7-course set was S$60++pax, very good deal i feel!

we were celebrating an occasion. went back to our favourite restaurant mikuni on 1.6.2015.^^
looked at the S$220pax grand tour tasting menu (after 50% feed at raffles it would be S$110pax). no particular interest, so did our usual ala carte.
feed at raffles also gave 2 wine or cake vouchers. so we used one for a 2013 chilean white wine. just nice, not so sweet & not tannic, very easy to drink for non connoisseur like me.
we ordered the chirashi don to share. for me this the best chirashi don in town for the price (S$90 so S$45 after 50% feed at raffles discounts).
you get 1 botanebi, a very good helping of uni, 2 chutoro, 3 salmon, 2 hamachi, 3 aburi kajiki (swordfish), 2 hirame (flat fish), 2 hotate, 2 other white fish & ikura. ^^ & this was dinner. to me mikuni’s chirashi don is way superior to aoki’s S$40 mazechirashi don lunch.
and tastu’s S$40 chirashi don is not even in the running. just look at the difference in quality & luxury. :-)
we ordered additional botanebi sashimi. it’s S$45 (before 50% discounts) for 3 large prawns.
& we ate up the deep-fried prawn heads (2heads each), even the legs were incredibly tasty, really well executed here.
they had lobster uniyaki special this evening. it’s a menu item, however we noticed that when they had it as a special, either it was a better lobster or bigger lobster. however like 20mins after we ordered, they came to say they were out, no more serving. we decided to order the teppanyaki lobster the server claims that it was the same quality lobster.
& it was very nice! :-)
lobster was quite small i think maybe 400g+ it was down the golden prawns way, with mayonnaise & tobiko (flying fish roe). lobster was very flavourful & the golden sauce too, though we avoided having too much of the fattening stuff. :-)
& our perennial favourite, the kagoshima wagyu sukiyaki konabe. i noticed immediately that there were 4 pieces of beef but they were smaller & thinner than what they used to serve, and did not have the same marbling.
it was nice still but really didn’t feel much of wagyu intense flavours.
they have this complimentary drawer dessert. i made suer i asked lest they did not volunteer. we picked the few we like,they were all very nice. :-)
the dinner came to S$115++, i.e. about S$58pax, for such quality food & nice ambience. very enjoyable & perfect for the occasion.
