Fresh food, great service though a little expensive

For my ex-colleagues who drove to Tatsu, parking was not a problem. I, on the other hand, took the train to Downtown MRT station. And it’s a short 5 to 8 minutes walk from the MRT station to Asia Square Tower 2. Upon taking the escalator to level 2, do make a sharp left turn to reach Tatsu shortly. We took a wrong turn and ended up lost. Thankfully there was a friendly cleaner who helped us!

And because we reached after a big detour (within level 2), we entered Tatsu through the wrong door. The door that leads directly into the teppanyaki area is not the main entrance. And it was because we wrongly entered the teppanyaki area that we decided to change our original plan of taking the teppanyaki counter seats. Ventilation was pretty bad and the confined area really smelled of smoke. We rather give up the thrill of watching the chef’s exciting performance than to rack of smoke.

And because we came in a group of 4, sitting at the sushi counter was not practicable since the seats were all in a row. No L-corner for us to at least sit 2-2. And with that, we took table seats. Although we took table seats, we ordered most of our items omakase style. Ie, stating what we felt like having and letting the staff make recommendations. Partially because there were so many items on the menu that we did not know where to start too.

And with that, we started our dinner:-

1) Salmon roe, $12 – Sujiko. The staff said there was fresh salmon roe and we took up her recommendation. Served with grated lemon skin, this was fresh and good.

2) Monkfish liver, $12 – Ankimo. Another recommendation by the staff, this was not too bad although it’s not exactly a very difficult dish to pull off. I liked the contrasting textures of the chopped radish and thinly sliced scallion against the smooth liver.

3) Omakase sashimi (for 1 person), $40 – From the a-la carte menu.

4) Mackerel pike sashimi, $32 – Sanma sashimi. Ordered upon the staff’s recommendation, this was fresh but not exactly my favourite. Ironically, I preferred the bones which they took to deep fry. Ha.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

10) Black sesame ice cream, $6

Located in the CBD area, Tatsu’s Asia Square outlet is catered for the working group where one can have their business meals. Which explained the use of dark colours in the dimly lit restaurant which gave a very solemn feel. I will definitely recommend Tatsu for the fresh ingredients, personalised service (we felt very loved) and good ambience.

Of course, if I were to head back to Tatsu, I would probably try their CHIJMES outlet which is more accessible for the non-CBD people.

Expensive & Very Average Chirashi Don

ee my full photos & reviews at = http://chefquak.com/2014/11/10/expensive-very-average-chirashi-don-tatsu-asia-square-2-on-7nov2014/

had a 5pax family dinner for a special occasion at tatsu asia square 2 on 7.11.2014. :-) daughter was keen to explore the different chirashi don. decided to try this place even though i was not impressed with the photo of the S$40 chirashi don on the website menu. since we were there, might as well try some of their recommendations. i don’t know the current price at sushi restaurants as seldom take now, but S$35 seemed reasonable (though at first the server say S$25 to S28 depending on size, but later became S$35). the aji did not disappoint. it was very sweet. the presentation though was somewhat disappointing. i told the server they should served the sashimi as a whole fish like most sushi bar & also in japan, but i get it that they might be offering what they thought was good serving by serving up the flesh & having the bones deep-fried. usually sushi bars would serve with the fishbones whole, then when you finish the sashimi they would take it away to deep-fry. unkai even did it better by “pengkang” which was not as convenient as deep-fried but tasted a lot better. :-) we ate up the deep-fried fish head & bones. gyu tataki was a recommended dish, it was good & a dish i would order if i come again (not likely though!). the menu showed kaizen (海鲜) chirashi don as S$40 & aburi (torched or flamed) don as S$50. i asked the server & she confirmed that both had exact same ingredients. i guess one needed to pay for the labour & torch. we decided to order 3 chirashi don. i would say this was a huge disappointment (which was not unexpected i having seen the website photo). it was a good chirashi of course. the fish were fresh & sweet. they were very thin slices though & w/o any quality sashimi cuts. compare this with the chirashi don at mikuni which has 2 pieces otoro, botan ebi, uni at S$45 (after 50% feed at raffles discounts). actually there was just nothing to compare! or the S$20 chirashi don set at ginza kuroson.  granted kuroson’s is only for lunch & the sashimi cuts were just as thin. or with the sashimi & unagi don set at sun with moon. i have not yet tried the chirashi don at flying squirrel & sushi koi, but they are around S$25 & it looks to me the quality would be better than here at tats. the salmon skin temaki was also a recommended dish. it was simple but nice & tasty. our helper does not take raw fish. so we ordered a seafood fried rice plus a crayfish teppanyaki. these were good restaurant standard. though the japanese preparation with lots of mayo not my favourite. my other daughter ordered a beef tenderloin and a aburi salmon maki. tenderloin was 200g size & quite tasty. & the maki was again good standard.

dinner came to S$330 for 5pax w/o drinks.  it was so so really because the chirashi don was really below par for the price.

One of my favourite Japanese restaurant

I had the sushi/tara set lunch ($28) which consists of salad, chawanmushi, miso soup, assorted sushi, cod fish teriyaki and dessert. Every course was very well-prepared, especially the cod fish teriyaki which was very smooth, tasty and extremely divine. Serving time was surprisingly fast and the waiting staff were also quite friendly, making the dining experience very enjoyable. However, portion size might be a little small so a set lunch might not be sufficient.

Value Lunch Bentos

Tatsu Sushi offers reasonably priced bentos in the CBD area. At a recent visit, I tried the sushi and sashimi bento ($35). It starts with a large portion of pitan tofu. Too much tofu in my opinion which gives the pitan flavour less kick than I would have liked it.

 Three pieces of seared fish sushi and a cooked prawn sushi and swordfish, salmon, yellowtail, tuna and prawn sashimi concludes the list of raw food - which was fresh, with a side of tempura moriwase which includes two prawns and miso soup, all designed to ensure that one can have a filling yet not overeat during lunch. 

Service is efficient , and reservations are recommended as it can get pretty crowded during lunch.

Egg white splattered all over ... poor service recovery

I was there for lunch for the first time at my friend’s recommendation at. After our meal, we sat around for a while, while the chef was preparing fried rice. He was performing stunts with the egg, we were impressed for a microsecond, till he cracked the egg while it was in the air. The egg while landed on parts of my blouse, my arm, my bag and my seat. What amazes me what how nonchalant the chef was. He merely gave me a paper napkin and wet it at my request. When I feedback to the manager and showed him the stains on my bag and clothes, he said this is common in teppan yaki and that’s why we were given a napkin. I told him we weren’t given any napkin. He then think for a while before waiving off my portion of the bill.
Just felt that there was no proactive-ness in service recovery and it was a disappointing dining experience.   

Food was good though (prawn / beef set). However, think twice about wearing your favourite clothing or carrying your favourite bag there.
