The Star Vista at Buona Vista offers a large number of eateries and restaurants. The addition of Gan Yakitori Japanese Restaurant on the 2nd floor increases the wide range of dining options which is good for foodie like me.I did my research before I organized a department lunch at Gan Yakitori. According to The Star Vista website which introduces this restaurant as one of their tenants, Gan Yakitori uses bincho charcoal for great taste. Bincho charcoal is the most suitable fuel for grilled dishes and all their yakitori are carefully grilled to perfection by their Japanese chef. Gan Yakitori also uses 100% Japanese rice and their special chicken soup is painstakingly boiled for over 8 hours with loadful of ingredients and it is "MSG free".Satisfied with the research, we organized an early Christmas lunch at Gan Yakitori today with 9 of my colleagues.We arrived at the restaurant at 12noon and the Japanese Manager led us to a long dining table reserved for 10 pax. The waitress provided us with clean napkins to wash our our hands while we were looking at the set lunch menu.Unaiju Teishoku (Charcoal Eel Set)Most of us ordered the unagi set lunch. The original price for the set lunch was $19+. They are having a special promotion (30% discount) and offering it at $13+. It was a good deal as we know good quality unagi is quite pricey. For those who do not know unagi, it is a savory and slightly sweet freshwater eel. The two pieces of unagi fillet were placed on top of the yellow colored  "egg noodles" and the Japanese rice at the bottom. The first bite of the unagi was unbelievable. The Japanese Chef did a great job by grilling the unagi to the right texture, infusing with sauce and reducing the the excess fat making it really delicious. My colleagues shared the same sentiments and they finished all their unagi. I believe the Japanese chef was highly trained to grill the unagi in order to achieve this perfect taste.Buta Don Teishoku (Pork & Onion with Egg Yolk Rice Set)This set lunch costs $12.80. The egg yolk was nested nicely in the middle of the pork and onion rice set bowl. Only one colleague ordered this set and his verdict was not bad. The pork was just nice for him and and the sauce was not too sweet.Mizutaki Nabe Teishoku (Chicken and Vegetables with Soup Hot Pot Set)This set lunch costs $14.80. The presentation was not bad and it looks like steamboat served in a hot pot. Similarly, although only one colleague ordered this set, she likes it for the simplicity (tender chicken meat, vegetables and tofu cooked in the hot pot) and served well with a bowl of fragrant Japanese rice.Overall, it is a good place for a simple lunch with friends, relatives or colleagues. Their popular set lunch range from $12.80 to $14.80 and usually it includes a bowl of soup and small salad. Drinks are not included and you can order Iced or Hot Green Tea at $1per cup (complimentary refill). All prices are subjected to 10% Service Charge and 7% GST.  continue reading

Gan Yakitori is one of the new restaurants since Star Vista's renovations. They are also related to the wonderful creators of Itacho Sushi, going along the lines of a dimly-lit izakaya emphasizing on yakitoris than sushis.If you're seated right at the yakitori bar, your selections will be skewered and grilled over Bincho charcoal right before your eyes.The yakitoris were truly the awesome house specialties of Gan Yakitori with quality ingredients. Every bite exceeds expectations of how shiok a yakitori could be. However, for the hungry customers, the bill can get expensive quickly as the portions are small. Recommended to get a few yakitoris to try but don't expect to fill your stomach with them alone.The Oyako Chicken Don was served with with a wobbly half-cooked egg yolk (!) and miso soup. I miss Japanese food so much! The miso soup is worth mentioning because it is the rare few with no overpowering saltiness and true miso tastes. The chicken was properly prepared to achieve the tenderized texture but not marinated enough. The don was a little bland for my palate, which explains the soya sauce and black pepper spamming.The dessert came in the form of Matcha Azuki with vanilla ice-cream and cornflakes!I love the matcha a lot because it is super rich and every inch of it is pure green tea. The azuki beans were also fresh and sweet with no grainy texture! Cornflakes seemed a little out of place though. Overall a satisfying dessert even though it is too small for my big appetite for desserts. continue reading
