Splendid food and service

I was hanging out at Dempsey area that day, and in the mood for some Japanese fare, hence Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant came into my mind.   A beautiful Japanese restaurant decorated in rich modernistic meets authentic Japanese design, this restaurant nestles behind some thick canopy, hence giving it a very "in nature" feel; and we were seated alfresco since inside was full house.

We shared the Rakuichi Bento (SGD$48.60) consisting of an assortment of Sashimi, an array of different types of Sushi, some Tempura items, skewered pork and skewered beef (Yakitori) and some sides of corn, edamane and sauteed mini shrimps. The sashimi was rather fresh and the sushi was lovely - we enjoyed the variety. The tempuras were crispy and the Yakitori pork was so succulent and delicious.

Following the above, we also shared the Kaki Totenabe (SGD$16.00) - oysters cooked in miso soup - with tofu and vegetables. This was a really delicious dish with piping hot broth that was sumptuous, and the oysters were fresh and chewy - perfect for a rainy night as such.

Lastly, the Aburi Salmon Ebi Avocado sushi roll (SGD$12.00) - combination of my favorite things such as salmon roe, shrimp and avocado. The pearl rice was fresh and of the right texture, and the seafood items were palatable. We were very full by the time this was served, but we strived to finish it because it was simply too tasty.

'10% discount' turned out to be 3%....

good location, decent food, and attentive staff. Overall good other than the bad taste left in my mouth when the touted "10%" discount (a credit card promotion) on a bill close to sgd 400, worked out to only a reduction of about 12 sgd.... My maths not very good, but even i can figure out this doesn't equate to '10% discount'... Excuse was most of the 12 items i had ordered, somehow was excluded. Oh and to add insult, the automatically served appetizers which we didn't order (tasted like canned tuna flakes with corn) added 25 sgd to the bill...

frankly i rather they don't claim there is a discount, then the overall experience would have been much better as the food and service is decent as i said above. Or give a genuine 10% off the bill as advertised. I guess many singapore based restaurants do these tricks these days. Wonder why no consumer protection body makes a rule to stop this.

I arranged a private dinner with a client/ friend (CEO of a global company) based on recommendations of this website. We ordered the $70 sashimi and halfway thru the meal, a cockroach crawled out of the sashimi plate base. We were totally shocked... And to make it worse, the staff were completely unperturbed by it...!!! The Head waitress simply took away the tray and brought back one more plate of Sashimi as replacement !!!! Imagine a place serving Raw Fish and with cockroaches crawling out of their serving plates !!! This place should be shut down by the NEA....!!! Done here at your own risk.
