Wasabi Tei's chunky Sashimi

Food/Drink 5| Value 4| Ambience 3| Service 4

Wasabi Tei continues to put out terrific food at reasonable prices. Their cuts of sashimi remain thicker and more satisfying than almost any other Japanese restaurant in Singapore. Any thicker and they'd might as well leave the whole fish on the table. It epitomizes the idea of, pardon the cliche, cheap and good. Recently, they added an aburi selection to keep abreast of the latest singaporean sushi trend. The new items are worthtrying, but won't blow your mind. 

It's great to see this place survive without Chef Peter, the originator of the restaurant's menu, pricing and style. He's moved on to create several other well-loved restaurants, but Wasabi Tei was the first and it's there that his legacy lives on. He's still alive... in case you were wondering. We're all looking for him though!

5 years ago....before I'd even moved to Singpore... I was just visiting some Singaporean friends from University. They decided to take me to Wasabi Tei, a hidden gem of a Japanese restaurant on the 5th floor of Far East Plaza with only 15 seats and an owner that was renowned for never smiling.   Fast foward 5 years.... 4 of which I've been living in Singapore, 2 of which have been involved in the creation of City Nomads. It's time for a revisit, will we still have to wait outside in a queue just to get a precious lunchtime seat? Is the owner still just as grumpy? And most importantly, is the food still as good as it once was?   Stepping through the blue cloth hanging at the door, I immediately felt a wave of nostalgia come over me. Not a thing had changed...except of course that there was no queue from the lunch-crowd.   Sadly, in Singapore, with new dining options opening up every day, it's a pretty harsh reality for small restaurants like this to stay in business...yet here they are, 5 years later. Looking at the menu I was pleasantly surprised to see that the prices had hardly changed. Still affordable, intimate dining in a casual setting reminiscent to some tiny eatery in the Asakusabashi district of Tokyo.....

For Shashimi Lovers only.

Been there countless of times, and everytime i'm very satisfied with the shashimi which is saying something because of the time you spend queueing may be up to 1-2 hours or more! The shashimi slices are thick, fresh and of rather good quality, despite the price. If you are looking for a comfortable restaurant with a good ambience, it may not turn out to be the place for you. However, if you enjoy good food and do not mind the long queueing time, the temperament chef, i would say you should try it out!

New Owners

Did the original couple owners sold off their restaurant? The menu looks mostly the same, but the current standard has indeed dropped ever since the new owners took over. The only plus point is perhaps bigger servings.
