Awesome little place

Been there a few times, they never fail to always put a smile on your face. Service staff are ever so friendly and attentive.

Food has a nice authentic taste to it and its fresh.
Food that I've tried:
Daigaku Imo: Glazed sweet potato with ice cream. Done ever so nicely
King of Cream Cheese: The blend of cream cheese and honey is done so nicely!
Maguro Tataki: Seared Tuna. Fresh with a tangy jelly sauce.
Potato Crequeete: Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
Salmon Gohan: This dish rocks. Hot bowl, butter, mentaiki, salmon and rice all mixed up. I could have easily ordered 2 of these.

Do call for a reservation. It's pretty popular on the weekends.

Katanashi @ Boat Quay - Japanese styled tapas

For my full review --> shauneeie

A gem of a find in the heart of boat quay. That japanese styled ambience with really good traditional japanese tapas. Portions are really small so its best to order more. Good for a group of not more than 4. I'd recommend the Hanpen Cheese and Scorched Salmon.

The dinner is as good as the set lunch

We had the Breaded Fish with Cheese first. It was yummy! Crispy fish cake on the outside and oozy cheese within. 

The Springroll of the day was Tuna with Avocado. This was light and refreshing.

Tuna Carpaccio - thick slices of fresh tuna with spring onions and (what I think was) dashi.

Yummy grilled chicken wings. I love well-grilled chicken wings and this was good.

We ordered two volcanic eruptions (one rice and one mochi)and it was interesting to watch them serve it. They brought the stone bowls to our table, poured the stock into the stone bowls and mixed the rice and mochi in the stock. The stone bowl with rice was delicious! The rice absorbed the stock and was really tasty. The mochi was not really what we expected as it came as bits of mochi swimming in a bowl full of stock. 

Fried Chicken which tasted different from your normal fried chicken. It was surprisingly sweet!

Okonomiyaki was good! It was creamy and sweet with a lot of ingredients within.

Green tea mochi and ice cream and sweet potatoes for dessert. The honey glazed sweet potato was divine! And it says a lot if I am praising sweet potato dishes since I am hardly a fan of sweet potatoes.

A comforting pot

Rainy days and Sundays always make us crave for something rich and comforting. Katanashi's salmon with butter, cod roe, soy sauce and rice in a sizzling pot ($18.50) does the trick. Go for the crispy bits. We wish you could smell it...

Good Japanese Tapas Restaurant and Bar at Boat Quay!

Along the busy stretch of eateries at Boat Quay, there is a Japanese Izakaya called Katanashi.

Run by a kitchen crew of Japanese, this is as authentic as flying to Japan to experience an Izakaya! 

I have observed that dinners there are always busy, so my lunch kaki and I decided to try their food over lunch.

Here are the dishes we tried:
Salmon on Potato Ball - Fresh salmon on a potato ball. Good!
KFC - Katanashi Fried Chicken - This was good. I wished I went alone and had the two drumlets to myself.
Beef Carpaccio - Beef was thinly sliced and topped with vinegrette dressing and scallions. Must-try!
Pork Belly with Potato -
Think braised pork belly with mashed potato heaped over it. 

The tell-tale for any Japanese eatery is if the restaurant has Japanese patronising the establishment. Given the number of Japanese patronising the restaurant, I think the restaurant stays true to its roots and offer good Japanese food.

Given Singaporean's love for Japanese food, do come and try them out!
