Mikuni @ City Hall

With new Executive Chef Keisuke Uno who has held various stints in Tokyo and other cities, the menu at Fairmont Singapore’s Mikuni has been revamped across its three distinct concepts –Sushi, Teppanyaki, and Robatayaki.

The Teppanyaki Lunch Special

The set lunches are always a bargain (?? vs their usual price) in terms of quality and quantity. You get seven courses that included two mains (a steak and a seafood), and the usual accompaniments. However Mikuni is not that cheap to start with, so be prepared to part with $100+++++ for even the set lunches.

Given that, you get some good ingredients masterfully prepared right before you.

Australia Wagyu Sirloin

The Australia Wagyu was cooked reasonably well. I ordered a medium rare, I would prefer the surface to be slightly more charred than this. And a bit redder in the middle. If only Chef Eric was on duty that day.

Grilled Hokkaido Scallop in butter

I am not fond of anything that is cooked in heavy cream and butter sauce. But this is quite a classic that could not go wrong, especially with American friends – they love scallops, they love butter, they love grills. Grilled Hokkaido Scallop in butter did not do justice to perfectly good scallops, but that’s because of my preference.

Grilled Kagashima A5 Wagyu

Kagashima Wagu A5 can only be served this way – lightly grilled over charcoal fire. It’s own marbling will add so much umami to the overall results that can only be better with the smokiness of the Bintotan used to grill them.

Japanese Corn on Cob

Everyone enjoyed this Japanese Corn on Cob. The sweetness of the corn was unbelievable. Serve this to your American friends and see how they are blown away by the unnatural sweetness of the corn.

The usual FAR benefits still applicable.
