Level1 2014-05-14
Bought the groupon deal of $55 for 8 pax to celebrate my father's birthday. I had previously requested for a reservation at 730pm for our 2 hour buffet but was told it was full. The place was only full on a weekday night at 8pm. So i don't understand why they had rejected my request for a 730pm slot. We sat indoors to enjoy the air condition. The waiters didn't change my grill for the entire 2 hours and also had forgotten and mixed up some of our orders. However they were friendly. Otherwise, sashimi was good even though 'bae' was unavailable. The beef had beatiful marbling and the salmon and mushroom pots were excellent as well. Pork was delicious if dipped into the sauce. Wouldn't recommend so much of the pork and chicken as compared to the beef. Beef tongue was very chewy, different from what i ate at Gyu Kaku. However, all of us felt a little 'gelat' after too much of the beef. The star of the night were the prawns and we just kept ordering more and more. The dog of the night would be the wagyu pot that was completely filled with meat close to 100% fat. Judging from the amount and quality of food i had, the $55 was well spent. They had a compulsory charge of wet towels and free flow ocha at $2.80++. Fruit cocktails ran out, wished i could have tasted it. Would come back again for another fattening and awesome experience. But maybe ala carte this time.  continue reading

Went there with my wife to have a early christmas lunch. Wanted to try yakiniku for a long time but was put off by the high prices, however found this gem in the heart of Boat Quay which was told is very affordable. We decided to take the table near the Singapore River as we are afraid it might make us smells like food after, but to my surprise no problem at all as the restaurant uses a smoke free grill. We proceed to order our food and of course we have to try the A4 japanese wagyu.we started with the leaner meat like chicken and salmon. and it was fantastic! salmon is marinated with butter and soy sauce and the chicken is lightly marinated with sea salt. it taste heavenly.then we proceed with the Korubuta pork belly and asparagus. Love the pork soooo nice.this is the legendary wagyu that im dying to try. Verdict? Of course it melts in your mouth and i wont forget the taste and texture ever.Seafood platter with tiger prawns, scallop, squid. lightly marinated and just right!Overall experience was wonderful. Everything is fresh and no need of the sauces they provided, its good on its own. Definitely will come back again! continue reading

Full Arashi Yakiniku review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/01/arashi-yakiniku-charcoal-bbq-restaurant.htmlFull Arashi Yakiniku review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/01/arashi-yakiniku-charcoal-bbq-restaurant.htmlEasily spotted along Boat Quay because of its distinct Japanese facade with lanterns and wooden-esque doors, the 3 month old Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant is gaining a name for itself by serving premium cuts of meat at mid-range prices. As a Japanese style grill / barbecue place, Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant has divided its 3 levels to serve different needs, with the 1st level being the future buffet area and open concept riverside dining, the 2nd level a quieter private area, and the 3rd level for large group functions.Ambience at Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant is traditional Japanese, think simple hues of wood and teak, clean profiles and minimalist decor. Seats are Zashiki floor seating style, with a sunken hollow for your legs. Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant has also won praise for its grill, a technological marvel that sucks away any smoke generated during cooking, which means diners leave without nasty smells on their clothing. This also results in a quicker, more even grilling on meats.Service at Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant is decent. Staff are knowledgable about the items on the menu, and can offer advice depending on your preference. I liked that they come around regularly to check that your drinks are topped up, as well as to clear finished plates. I did think the staff outside could make more of an effort to promote Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant to passerbys though.Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal BBQ Restaurant uses white Binchotan Japanese charcoal, which creates high heat quickly, while remaining almost smoke free and odourless. This is placed in a pit in the middle of the table, under which is the device which removes any lingering smoke or smell.Diners are offered a choice of either Asari Clam Miso Soup, or Seaweed Miso Soup. The Asari Clam Miso Soup has a lot of fresh clams, seaweed, and tofu, and the miso base is of good quality, without any monosodium glutamate (MSG).The star attraction at Arashi Yakiniku is their selection of premium grade A4 wagyu beef, from one of Japan's top producers, the Ohmi brand of cattle. Cuts include tenderloin (SGD $68.80), kurubi short rib (SGD $48.80), sirloin (SGD $88.80) and ribeye (SGD $68.80), with ala-carte serving sizes at 150 grams. Prices are reasonably competitive, as the owner has good relations with suppliers. Furthermore, their meat is fresh, not frozen, which carries maximum flavour.Japanese wagyu tends to derive its flavour from the fat content / marbling and has a more tender texture, in contrast to Australian wagyu with a slightly tougher texture, and where the flavour is locked into the meat, making it more intense. Both types of beef require less than 1 minute on the grill, and are beautifully smooth and flavourful. For a more natural taste, don't dip the beef in the dipping sauce. continue reading

For more pictures, please check out my blog post. http://hannahchia.blogspot.sg/2014/01/food-review-arashi-yakiniku-charcoal.htmlArashi Yakiniku Charcoal Grill Restaurant is a relatively new kid on the block that aim to provide a more affordable Japanese BBQ to the public. The about 3 months old restaurant is highly accessible be whether you are driving or taking public transport. It's about 5 minutes walk from Raffles Place MRT along the riverbank of Boat Quay.Arashi Yakiniku could be easily located with the distinctive Japanese facade decorated with huge sake bottles and lanterns. If the weather is good and you are looking for a place to enjoy the beautiful night CBD scenery by the riverbank, I would suggest you to take the table outside the restaurant as the river view IMO is quite stunning.Arashi Yakiniku is actually a 3 storey restuarant with open concept on level. On level 2, it's semi open concept which provide diners with more privacy and there are also 2 small private rooms for small groups to have a more to themselves meal.On level 3, there are 2 huge private rooms that can accommodate bigger group up to 12 pax.One of the irritating thing about having a BBQ dinner is how the smell of the BBQ food lingers on our clothes. However at Arashi Yakiniyu, they are using high quality smokeless grill from Japan which used a unique technology that sucks in the surrounding air and smoke from the grill. As a result, food can be cooked more evenly and quickly. But best of all, having a meal here also means no more smelly clothes when we walk out of the restaurant! And if there is not enough to convince you to have a japanese BBQ, they are also using white charcoal which is almost smokeless, odorless and is chemical free. Brilliant isn't it!I was slightly late so when I reached Namuru ($7.80), Japanese side dishes of pickled bean sprouts, spinach and shimeiji mushrooms, was already served on the table. Arashi Kaisen Salad ($15.80), Japanese Seafood salad, is a very refreshing dish to kick start the dinner. It is very light and appetizing with the slightly sour salad dressing that compliment the greens and salmon sashimi very well. However do remember to toss the salad before you start enjoying this dish.At Arashi Yakiniku, the meat are all imported from either Japan or Australia with a minimum meat quality of A4. We were very blessed to be able to start with “Ohmi" grade A4 wagyu beef, reservation is needed if you want to try the grade A5 wagyu meat. Depending on personally preferences, there are tenderloin, ribeye and sirloin available from $68.80 per serving. Personally I like the tenderloin the most. However to be frank all the different cuts of meat are all very good, look at the grain and marbling on the meat!Yummilious! They are very tender after the grilling and each bite of the meat has this light charred flavour. Thumb up!Assorted vegetables($10.80) with a selection of asparagus shoots, Shitake mushrooms, pumpkin slices, onions slices and leeks is a perfect for health conscious people like me. Personally I like the pumpkin slices a lot as after grilling, it is soft and sweet. At Arashi Yakiniku, Ninniku Gohan ($4.80),Garlic Fried Rice, is cooked just before they are served. Thus the rice is exceptionally fragrant. Personally i like this a lot as it's really well cooked and full of flavor.Asari Miso Soup ($7.80), Clam Miso Soup, is rather different from the conventional miso soup. Beside retaining the miso soup flavour, the natural sweetness of the clam enhanced the whole soup drinking experience. Yummy! As the fish meat lover, I was elated when I saw Gindara Nitsuke ($18.80), Japanese Cod Fish, being served. It was cooked to perfection, well seasoned and even the carrot and mushroom that comes with it tastes delicious!Assorted Seafood Platter ($28.80) consist of squid, tiger prawns, salmon slices and scallop. I find this set very affordable and I was also told that the prawns are delivery daily. No wonder they are so fresh and juicy. Definitely a must order item IMO.Tempura Moriwase ($28.80) is another of my favorite dish of the night. The tempura batter is simply spot on! Not to thick or too thin. It nicely wrapped the prawns and vegetables and the end result is crispy on the outside and when you bite onto it, the fresh juicy prawn and soft hot vegetables are revealed! A specialty by Arashi Yakiniku that is not to be missed. For pork lover, over here they served Japanese Kurobuta pork belly($19.80) and pork collar($20.80) which has more fats and is more suitable for BBQ. I didn't try this as I was already very full when the meat is served. According to fellow openricers, the quality of the meat is very good and has this melt in your mouth kind of experience. So pork lovers do try it and share with me your experience. =)Tomi Tare Chicken ($9.80), chicken marinated in shoyu, is another dish which we have tried. The meat is well marinated and as thigh meat was used so you can be assured of the tenderness of the meat. What is life without desserts, right? We ended the night with some homemade Arashi mango pudding. I like the fact that there are some diced mango to compliment the pudding.Thank you very much Openrice for organising such a delicious food tasting event at Arashi Yakiniku. I have enjoyed myself very much and have a great time meeting fellow foodies. You are invited to like my Facebook Page and follow me on Instagram @Blessedbabyhannah for more updates! Have a blessed week ahead! =) continue reading
