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.
