This restaurant isn't named after Naruto's son! Boruto is actually 'vault' pronounced in katakana (just like for the Japanese people R/L and V/B are hard to differentiate).
Located in the heart of the CBD area, it's very easy to access from Raffles Place MRT, Chinatown MRT, and Clarke Quay MRT!
This building was actually a bank and instead of changing the interior...they kept it! It's like dining in a building with lots of history!
The interior has a izakaya (Japanese restaurant)-like atmosphere but with a western touch. This perfectly reflects the dishes you can enjoy in Boruto.
On the second floor, they have more seating areas that includes a big refrigerator with all the sakes like umeshu!

Umeshu is plum wine and as you can see, this is home made and takes 6 months to make! Talk about dedication! Besides umeshu, they have a WIDE range of western and Japanese alcohol and if you're lost at what kind of sake to choose...just ask the friendly waiters/waitresses and they will recommend you a drink that will compliment your food.

Remember how I mentioned this building used to be a bank? Well they kept a vault that stores all the rare sakes from Japan! This was a super cool place to check out as the vaults have safes insides as part of the interior.

There's also a private room located on the second floor. This area can be enclosed with a sliding door to provide privacy. It's suitable for larger groups or private events! For Japanese people they like to go to Izakaya's after work to have 'bonding sessions' and share a drink or two with collegues/classmates/friends after work/class.

Don't forget the beautiful decoration of the Japanese Taru (barrels) which are used to stores sake! Dont' worry, these are empty so you won't get a sake shower!

The night began with the Saga Beef Tataki. Tataki refers to a cooking style where you sear either fish or meat over a hot flame/pan and marinate with a sauce. It's kinda close to an Itallian Carpaccio (but cooked on the outside). Saga beef (or Saga Gyu) is one of the highest grade/quality of wagyu. It's marinated with soy sauce and garnished with negi (spring onion) and edible flowers. 
I'm a meat lover so I loooved this dish but I kinda wished I could taste and savor the high-quality Saga beef.

Next appetizer is...another type of tataki! This time is fish! It's the Ahi Tataki - 'Ahi' is a Hawaiian term for Yellowfish Tuna. The sauce includes black pepper, wasabi, olive, and a citrusy sauce. It doesn't have any salt because the olives give a salty flavor and it helps  bring out the flavor of the sauce and ahi fish.

Next came a show-stopping dish. This brings fusion to the next level because this dish is called a... Crispy Rice Cracker Tacos! It's a crispy deep fried rice cracker with pulled pork, guacamole and chili salsa. I'm a HUGE avocado fan and this a dish you can pop in your mouth and enjoy with maybe a sip of sake or whiskey!

Moving onto the main dishes, lets add a bit of Chinese cuisine influence! The Tori-take roll is a crispy chicken roulade with stuffed shitakejam drizzled with a Chinese sauce. It's quite filling and very flavorful!

Let's end the main course with a 'shime' (〆). In Japan, after a meal or drinkin session, people will eat a dish that brings the night to an end. 'Shime' usually refers to carbohydrate dishes like ramen! This signature Uni Pasta v1.1 is a great shime - braised cappellini in sea urchin and yuzu stock, topped with fresh sea urchin roe & Hokkaido white wasabi. Yes the white cheese-like garnish is the Hokkaido white wasabi! Don't worry it's not spicy like the usual wasabi! If you're wondering what 'v1.1' is...this dish is an upgraded version to the previous uni pasta. Instead of the usual garlic/white wine sauce, a refreshing seafood broth is used.

Then comes my favorite part of the meal- DESSERTS!
All the desserts are homemade (like the umeshu!) and it's great that a restaurant provides a personal at-home touch. One of the desserts that's very traditional is the warabi mochi! 
Warabi mochi is a jelly-like dessert made from bracken starch covered with kinako powder. Kinako is roasted soybean flour! The texture and flavor is great - I could probably eat this whole bowl by myself!

Truffle Creme Brulee

Last but not least, is this unique dessert that I think can also be a great appetizer/side dish! It's a truffle creme brulee. It's my first time to see truffles in a dessert and I must say...it works! The only thing is that the creme brulee is quite watery so after a few bites I thought it would be a great dip. Pair it with some fries and it's like truffle fries v1.1!!! 

With that brings the end of the meal at Boruto! What we ordered were great dishes to pair with some drinks and suitable to share with maybe a group of 3-4. The reason why I recommend pairing it with a drink is because the flavor of the dishes that we ordered are quite strong and packs a punch so it'll go well along with a sip of sake! It really depends on which dishes you order since some dishes aren't sharing friendly (like the pasta). If you're looking for a different twist from your usual Izakaya, this is a great place to try out. You'll see a different side to the usual Japanese dishes!

Boruto is located along South Bridge Road, which is just a stone’s throw away from Clarke Quay and Raffles Place. The prime location is convenient for office workers to unwind while grabbing a bite from their tapas menu and a drink from the sake bar. With this concept, the dishes served are of a smaller portion, but that would mean that you get to try a greater variety of food!
During our visit, we managed to try Boruto’s 5 signature dishes.

We started our meal with the Saga Beef Tataki. Wow, just wow. The beautiful marbling of the beef resulted in tender pieces of thinly sliced meat. Heavily marinated with a soya based sauce, it made up a small bite but was definitely not lacking in flavour. Next, we had the Crispy Rice Cracker Tacos (SD12.80 pictured above). The tacos are topped with pulled pork, guacamole and chilli salsa. Easily a crowd pleaser, the crunchy rice cracker serves as a contrast to the tender pulled pork. It is beautifully completed with a creamy guacamole and some zest from the chilli salsa. Just pop it into your mouth and enjoy the flavours on your tastebuds!

The cold tapas of the night was the Ahi Tataki. Sliced tuna tataki with black olives, japanese leek, chilli and wasabi yuzu dressing. The tuna was slightly pan fried on the outer layer and very well seasoned with the sauces. I thought this was average, perhaps it’s because I’m not a big fan of tuna.

The Tori-take Roll is a crispy chicken roulade stuffed with shiitake jam, drizzled with a chinese sauce. The rolled chicken was so tender and juicy that we couldn’t just stop at one. This was when I thought the small serving of tapas wouldn’t be able to satisfy the diners — I needed more!

We had our tasting on the 1st floor at their tapas bar and initially, I thought that the seats on that level were rather limited.
That was when the staff decided to bring us to the 2nd floor for a tour where there was a sake bar and plenty of seats.

In my opinion, Boruto is a great place to chill out with friends if you want some peace and quiet from the crowd.
If you're looking for a place to have a business meeting and you want to impress your clients at the same time, Boruto is definitely worth checking out. In fact, they have comfy rooms like these if you require more privacy.

Time for the feasting!
Our first sampling dish was this photogenic plate of Saga Gyu Tataki ($28.80).
The Japanese beef was seared with saffron and was bursting with flavours. Personally, as much as I adore its taste and soft, chewy texture, I'd have to admit that it gets very salty if you consume more pieces of beef so share this dish if possible and eat moderately!
The flowers on the plate were edible but they were tasteless to me, possibly because the beef was already overpowering in terms of its taste so I couldn't taste anything from the flowers. At $28.80, this dish was admittedly on a pricier side but I supposed you're paying for expensive and quality ingredients.

Another cold dish we've tried was the Ahi Tataki ($12.80), which was basically tuna with olives, chilli, Japanese leek and wasabi yuzu.
It was superbly tasty and delicious. For someone who cringes at the taste of wasabi, I actually found the wasabi used very mild and tolerable.

Crispy Rice Cracker Tacos ($12.80) were lovely to indulge in even though I had to pop the entire taco into my mouth in a very unglamorous way to avoid dropping the ingredients.
That said, this was a yummilicious treat indeed. Think a crunchy cracker layer topped with chilli salsa and guacamole of such creamy and smooth consistency. I absolutely adore this snack and was tempted to go for more except that there were no more left because my fellow tasters have already finished them. HA HA!

My ultimate favourite was the Tori-Take Roll ($15.80).
It was a Chinese inspired dish of crispy chicken stuffed generously with shitake jam (oooh yes, I love shitake mushrooms!) and drizzled with Chinese dark sauce. Being addictive and irresistibly yummy, I loved it so much that I decided to be thickskinned and announced to all that I was going for a second piece.

Unfortunately, Uni Pasta V.1.1 ($35.80) wasn't to my liking even though it was an improved version and came with a hefty price tag.
This Japanese pasta was topped with sea urchin roe and Hokkaido white wasabi and I honestly didn't fancy the overwhelmingly strong taste of the sea urchin. It was too much for me so I had to stop after a bite of this.

We were also treated to desserts which made us all excited because there's always room for desserts in our stomach.
Warabi Mochi ($8.80) was incredibly soft and was accompanied by a 'melt in your mouth' texture. In fact, the taste was so memorable that I could still remember how it tasted till now. Definitely a must-try, in my opinion!

Chocolate Surprise ($12.80) was another dessert that all of us enjoyed, mainly because you cannot go wrong with vanilla ice-cream over a warm and sinful chocolate base.
The generous amount of peanuts gave the dessert an additional crunch too. I had to remind myself not to indulge too much in this.

Lastly, we had Truffle Creme Brulee ($8.80) which was pretty interesting, especially when I've never eaten a truffle-flavoured creme brulee before.
This dessert was pretty much a hit or a miss - if you can't stand the taste of truffle, then you wouldn't be able to appreciate this. Fortunately, I enjoy creme brulee and can take truffle so this was okay for me. It would be great if it was less watery though because after a while of sharing, it just looked like some wet, milky mess. Ha ha!

Ended the night with a group photo taken with my fellow food tasters.
Oh yes, it was a cosy gathering of only a few of us and we thank Openrice SG and Boruto Singapore for hosting us!

First up, we had the perfectly Seared Saga Beef ($28.80). Topped with garnish and saffron, each slice was a treat to the taste buds. However, what the dish which won me over here at Boruto was the Crispy Rice Cracker ($12.80). Based with rice crackers and topped off with a very good rendition of pulled pork, guacamole and chilli salsa (trust me the pulled pork is excellent).

The Ahi Tataki is a dish of seared ahi tuna. The spicy kick brought by the sauce gave this dish something different. It can be an option if you like your fish tatakis and the wasabi Yuzu dressing elevated the dish to make it refreshing.

Crispy Rice Cracker Tacos

I liked the mushiness of the pulled pork against the creamy background of the guacamole. The crispy rice cracker added a contrasting crunch and the chilli salsa gave a good kick to the end. Altogether, this has to be my favourite dish in the tasting

Tori Take Roll
The Tori Take Roll is a chicken roulade stuffed with shiitake jam. It is drizzled with a Chinese-style vinaigrette which comprises of sesame, chilli, soy sauce and black vinegar. The shiitake jam is really delicious, but the flavouring of this dish is more suitable for the chinese palate.

From Top Clockwise: Warabi Mochi ($6.80), Chocolate Souffle Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream ($8.80) and Truffle Creme Brulee ($12.80)

For the souffle cake, it came as promised with a richly oozy molten chocolate centre. The whole combination of soft cake with the melted chocolate was a delight. My favourite dessert of the three, this was a crowd-pleaser.

It is a good place for knocking back a few glasses, especially if you are into sakes and the food here doesn't lack in quality, though some unconventional flavours may not appeal to everyone. You will need deeper pockets though.

I liked the Tori-Take roll too - a crispy chicken roulade stuffed with shiitake jam, tender and juicy, drizzled with a special sauce of balsamic, wasabi, brown sugar and sesame oil. I can easily finish the whole portion alone! 
It's overall a nice place to have sake and some bites while catching up with life, order your sake by 100ml glasses or you can also order a whole cylinder and keep them for all your subsequent visits till your bottle is empty (your name will be tagged on). 
Would be great if they could have a bigger or more obviously hanged signboard outside the premises to guide customers in, I got lost, but I'm so thankful I was introduced to this place, albeit the high price and small portion could be a deterrence. Great place!

Sake Bar
At the Sake Bar, located at level 2, is where Boruto offers a private room with cushy leather sofa for diners to sit back and chill out with their favourite drink. This private room is made available for reservation with a minimum charges.

One might very quickly notice the Sake vault with the safe boxes as backdrops.

Besides the sake and bespoke cocktails, the Japanese Plum Wine is also offered. Customers could purchase a bottle and store it with Boruto and pop over to enjoy whenever they feel like it.

Tapas Bar
The Tapas Bar features a bar counter facing the open kitchen. Diners could enjoy the food while watching the chefs in action. Boruto offers mainly bar table seatings with a few normal dinning tables as an alternative option.

Currently, Boruto offers 5 Salads, 10 Small Bites, 6 Cold Tapas, 14 Hot Tapas, 6 Carbs and 5 Sweets.

Small Bites
We didn’t try any of the 5 salads. Instead we jumped straight into the Small Bites priced from $6.80 to $15.80. Among the 10, we tried only the Crispy Rice Cracker Tacos ($12.80). It is one of the 2 recommended dish for Small Bites. Pulled pork is sat on crispy rice crackers, topped with guacomole & chilli salsa. A flavourful dish with creamy smooth guacomole enhancing the dish and chilli salsa to spice it up. This is one of my top favourite dish at Boruto.

In case, you are wondering what’s the second recommendation, it is the Teba Gyoza ($15.80).

Cold Tapas
Coming to the Cold Tapas, we tried 2 out of 6 dishes. Saga Gyu Tataki ($28.80) is one of the very well received dish among the group of taster of the night. Including myself, I thought well of it too. The perfectly seared Japanese Beef with some seaweed and saffron was served with some lovely edible flowers laced on the edge of the plate. Not only it is appealling in sight but certainly flavoursome to the tastebud.

Both the cold tapas we tried were the recommended dishes at Boruto.

Hot Tapas
Tori-Take Roll ($15.80) is a North-eastern Chinese (Dongbei) inspired dish. Crispy chicken roulade with stuffed shitake jam drizzled with Chinese sauce concoction. My other personal favourite. Personally, I like the combination of the shitake jam with chicken.

Personally, I thought it was a tough fight with the Saga Gyu Tataki.
Among the 14 Hot Tapas, beside the Tori-take Roll, there are 4 others recommended tapas namely Hotate to Cauliflower no Grill ($15.80), Beef short rib 58°C ($18.80), Kurobuta “Sio Bak” ($20.80) and Zuwai Gani Sausage ($30.80).

Carbs
Knowing that some diners might need carbs to complete the meeal, Boruto introduces 6 dishes to the menu with 3 recommended dish. We tried one of them, the Uni Pasta v1.1 ($35.80). It is known as version 1.1 as it is an improved dish from the original recipe which was with a Aglio Olio based pasta.

The version 1.1 has its pasta cooked in seafood broth topped with fresh sea urchin roe and Hokkaido white wasabi. So expect an extremely strong seafood flavour from the dish. You either love it or hate it. I belong to the latter. Personally, I find the flavour too pungent.

Sweets
Desserts are always welcomed even after tons of food. My stomach could always make space for them. Starting from the lightest in taste is the Warabi Mochi ($8.80). A sweet soft to the chew and lightly sweeten, is made from bracken starch and coated with kinako. Most of us find that it lack of the chewiness which is present in mochi.

At Boruto, they served the classic Creme Brulee with truffle infused, the Truffle Creme Brulee ($8.80). Though the texture is a little to liquefied but was flavourful, filled with nice vanilla flavour and truffle augmented the dish. But certainly this may not appeal to everyone. As there are some factor of acquired taste I suppose.

Finally, the strong in taste is the Chocolate Surprise ($12.80). Half cake, half souffle with molten chocolate in the centre and served with 2 scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream and lastly topped with some crushed peanut.

Chocolate fan, you are in it for a treat. Rich and strong chocolate aroma filled this dish. It is tough for me to reject this dish as one of my fave sweet at Boruto.

Final thought ... At Boruto, there are some outstanding dishes while a few pale to comparison. In short, there are hits and misses.
