Hidden Oasis

A hidden sanctuary in a busy location, nice place to seek refuge from the CBD crowd.

Beautiful coffee and fresh japanese food at seriously awesome prices. Super friendly service that makes you feel like you're hanging out with friends.

Unlike the rest of the F&B joints on Amoy Street, the entrance is along the alley next to Swee Kee Kah Soh Restaurant. The space is kinda small though, so I can imagine it will get more hectic during peak periods. I enjoyed just sitting at the bar with an espresso, watching the sushi chef at work.

Will definitely be back, probably as a regular. Hope that they won't lose the chillout ambience when the crowds start coming in.

Went there yesterday and had the Surpirse Chef's Bento. Truly shocking, what I got for a $30++ Bento in terms of quality. No disputes on the cookery, but for that sort of pricing, I could've had something way better at Ichiban Boshi.

The Bento consisted of the following:

Rice with tonkarashi and pickles

2 small pieces of fried salmon heads drenched in teriyaki sauce and garnished with caramelised onions - When you place salmon heads into a $30++ bento set, I'd expect to get at least half a head, or a salmon fillet. Decently made, but could've been better if they didn't serve this deep-fried and drowned in an overly sweet sauce.

Butter clams accompanied with shimeji mushrooms and asparagus - the one saving grace of the set, but they need to wash their clams better. I got some grits in mine. Quality control guys!

Octopus tentacles dressed with pickles & wasabi dressing - Tone down the wasabi! I know it's just horseradish but there comes a point where the bite overwhelms the flavour!

2 pieces of fried gyoza - Tasted like it came from a frozen food packet. Overly floury taste and lack of ingredients in the filling betrayed its quality.

Crab stick salad - Final straw. For this sort of price I would expect a few slithers of snow crab rather than cheapskate surimi.

With these sort of steep prices, I won't be going back there in the near future. The rave reviews sound like they've been over-fluffed.

 We chanced upon an interesting signage pointing towards an alley, which doesn't look at all promising a place for meal. But our doubts were soon hammered back to ourselves. Hidden just in the alley, there is a small, or perhaps squeezy restaurant. It was packed and the aroma of the food upon entering didn't gave us a chance to walk out.
 
 Only able to house handfuls of diners, it would be recommended to make reservations instead, especially when the lunch hour is precious during the weekdays.
 
 Despite the narrow walkway, I love the interior design of the restaurant. The walls and floors have the raw-hardened cement as finishing, without any tiles. One special side of the side is sealed with real bricks, where we believe the wall has been cracked open revealing the foundation bricks within. Very much like an interior industrial style.
 
 The Flying Squirrel's menu is limited by choice of food. They have a variety of alcoholic drinks, which at night turned to be a bar.
 
 It was initially a disappointing experience while placing our order, because both our orders, Chicken Karaage Bento and Tonkatsu Donburi were sold out then. Not having much interest in the sashimi and other bentos, we settled for the Unagi Donburi ($17.00). It consists of braised unagi, poached egg, scallions and green onions served with Japanese rice.
 
 When we were served, the aroma of the Unagi started to tickle our nostril, somewhat telling us to start cracking on the food. The tender unagi and rice which seems to be coated with collagen make the whole dish pleasing to our palates. Portion is sufficient enough for a person, which isn't too little or too much for an average person.
 
 Although the Unagi Donburi is satisfying, I am still craving for their Chicken Karaage Bento, which consists of Japanese curry sauce.

I checked out The Flying Squirrel, a hidden laneway restaurant off Amoy Street that does afusion Japanese cuisine. Oh I shudder at the fusion/mod tag but well no prior judgment. Ultimately it's the taste of the food that matters. 
Look out for TFS signboard when you're walking along Amoy Street. You may simply miss the entrance which is in the left fork. The half-a-shophouse space is narrow but cosy. Reservations certainly required as they only sit about 30 diners max. The bar seats didn't look that comfortable and I saw no place for precious bags to be placed. The good thing is that you'd get to see your sushi being prepared behind the counter. Chef Kannu helms the kitchen and he used to work in a defunct sushi restaurant, Inagiku, at Fairmont hotel. I'm going to do things a little different by showcasing the highlight first because i can't wait to share it NAO. 

Do not leave The Flying Squirrel without eating the TFS Chirashi ($25)! To set expectations right, it's not a true chirashi but more like an Anago don with sashimi sides. Just look at the proportion in comparison to the different sashimi! The anago was one of the better anago I've had in Singers and the pillowy texture with that light sweet sauce was amazing on its own. I also liked the combination of sweet sauce on the heavily vinegared rice but the rice could be more moist on its own though. The other standard sashimi included salmon, maguro, hamachi, octopus, shrimp, hotate, salmon roe and tamago.
  There are mains available like Wagyu Burger ($36), Miso Gindara ($26) or Curry rice ($18) but nothing quite like the TFS chirashi.
