Reviews for (Closed) KUMO Kaiseki

Fresh Sashimi

Colours and flavours play out beautifully on the plates here as Chef Nobu pays particular attention to his seasonable menu. In particular, the sashimi, as the fish is flown in almost daily from Japan, and the savoury dashi stock, which is a signature element used across the menu. Too bad about its interiors, which is a little too stark for our taste and can give off an uninviting vibe. It does not help that its location, smack in the middle of the Central Business District, leads most diners to treat it as a quick, eat-and-get-out space. The restaurant deserves more time and attention for its well turned-out, decently-priced kaiseki (traditional multi-course) menu.

Restaurant Week S$35nett Set Lunch Offer

See full reviews & photos on my blog=http://chefquak.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/restaurant-week-35nett-lunch-kumo-kaiseki-restaurant-on-19mar2013/

A friend bought lunch today. As it was DiningCity Restaurant Week (18-24mar2013), I suggested the $35nett lunch set at Kumo Kaiseki Restaurant.  I have stopped going for Restaurant Week these days as there is nothing much on offer. S$40 lunches & S$55 dinners at the ‘Star’ restaurants like Oso, Gaia, Absinthe etc are not cheap and also usually restrictive on the menu items especially mains c/w their daily lunches. Last year for example, UOB

Piece of Japan in Singapore

We've had the Kaiseki experience in Japan but never in Singapore.  It was an opportunity to compare and contrast.  We were invited for a food tasting in August 12.

The Kaiseki experience is very dependent on the chef but this day we had a choice of the beef wagyu and the ribeye.

Overall the Kaiseki experience is that high quality food is served in food displays that exemplify the high quality of the ingredients,  you're to admire it before consuming it and the beauty enhances the experience.  Kawai !!

For starters we had a mixed salad,  in dainty bowls.  A light clear soup with fresh
