It may be located in a quiet corner of Forum The Shopping Mall in Orchard Road, but this Japanese restaurant is always bustling, even on normal weeknights. It’s an intimate 16-seater restaurant helmed by chef Yoshiyuki Kashiwabara, who offers an inspired omakase menu featuring Japan’s best. A meal typically begins with a refreshing appetiser featuring fresh tofu, tofu skin and uni on a rich broth, followed by a medley of dishes that may include the salt-grilled wagyu paired with a tangy apple dressing. Service here is discreet—there won’t be any waitstaff emerging from behind you to pour tea or remove your plates. Everything is done by the chefs and their assistant, so there’s a high level of guest-chef interaction. As for the chefs, they’re chatty and inquisitive, and knowledgeable and well-trained in their craft to answer any difficult questions related to the food.
