Marukyu by Dezato, offers a rather premium omakase ($148) at the quiet evening enclave of tanjong pagar.
The meal starts with a soft silky smooth tofu topped with a savory thick soya based sauce and two slices of smoked duck to open up the palette.
This is followed by sashimi consisting of tuna belly (otoro), yellow tail (kampachi), white fish and scallop topped with salmon roe. Items were very fresh.
The next course was a seasonal boiled mash yam followed by three pieces of very fatty wagyu beef.
The sushi course included sweet prawn (amaebi), seared swordfish, yellowtail and sea urchin.
To wash it all down, a clear warm mushroom and fishcake soup was served.
Prior to dessert, I ordered two additional dishes. The first was a huge oyster from Japan ($16) done ponzu style and then ended with some carbs with the ebi spaghetti, which I found a little on the salty side.
Dessert was a umeshu jelly which added a slight alcohol punch to end the meal.
Overall, I found the quality of the food to be good. Chef is very friendly and ready to explain any of the dishes when necessary.
