It was a return visit for dinner since we were craving for some decent Japanese food and it had been a while since our last visit to Hide Yamamoto.Booking a few days in advance notched us the elusive round sofa seat, which on hindsight, wasn't a great choice as it was situated directly below an air conditioning vent. And we spent a good part of our dinner shivering.Chawanmushi Black Truffle Flan with Fresh Sea Urchin - The chawanmushi boasted a silky smooth texture with truffle undertones in every spoonful. Topped with a fresh piece of sea urchin, it was just sublime. Portion sizes are a tad small so do order another one if you are a fan.Tiger Prawn & Tamago Sushi - Sweet and crunchy prawn served atop fluffy, not too sticky rice with a mild vinegar aftertaste and a spot of wasabi in the centre. Nice and simple. Ditto the tamago sushi as well. A sizable piece of mildly sweet tamago towering over a bed of excellent sushi rice.Sea Scallop with Spinach and Butter Soy Sauce - The scallop was huge and the buttery taste gave it a very western slant whilst the saltiness of the soy sauce yanked it towards an eastern orientation. Interestingly good but not exactly mind blowing for $20++ a pop.Teppanyaki Wagyu Sirloin - Done up medium as per my request, the wagyu (100g) clocked in a fat to meat ratio of about 30-70 with the meat tender and flavourful, albeit a tad too salty for my liking. Certainly not the best I've tried but decent enough. Served up with awesome crisp garlic chips and vegetables. Not too sure if its worth the $98++ though.Snow Crab and Mushroom Claypot Rice with Ankake Sauce, Truffle Flavour - Served on a hot plate with the sauce mixed in separately (a little like Pepper Lunch), the rice was moist and plump with a nicely savoury, mild truffle aftertaste. Topped with copious amounts of succulent and sweet snow crab. Pretty nice!Seafood Miso Ramen - One of the reasons we wanted to return to Hide Yamamoto - the awesome ramen, which is apparently made from a 110 year old recipe. Alas, it wasn't as good as we remembered it to be. The ramen was al dente but the broth did seemed a little too diluted. And this time round, the sweet corn failed to lift it up with its mild sweetness. The seafood (tiger prawn, scallop) was fresh though.One other comment. I have no idea why the wait staff hesitated in serving us the ramen in parallel with the claypot rice. I was having the rice while my wife was having the ramen so it wasn't cool that we had to chase them for the ramen.Apart from the chawanmushi, dinner wasn't exactly memorable. And it certainly wasn't cheap either, at $260 for two (diluted green tea @ $9++/pax. Seriously?). Food quality seems to have taken a dip and even the once great ramen has fallen from the peak. Would I return? Probably not.See all my pictures at http://www.timelessfacade.com/2014/09/hide-yamamoto-ii.html continue reading

We were craving for Japanese food after an afternoon musical at the Mastercard Theatres @ Marina Bay Sands so popped by Hide Yamamoto for an early dinner on a Saturday evening.There are a total of 4 seating areas within Hide Yamamoto - Sushi bar, Teppanyaki counter, Robata counter and the Ramen & Dining area. We opted for the Ramen & Dining area as it would allow us to order from all the counters. Not too sure if you are entitled to the same flexibility if you sit at one of the specialised areas. Do note that tables are spaced quite close to each other (unless you manage to snag the red velvet booth seat) so private conversations can pose quite a challenge.Grilled Hokkaido Scallop - At $35++ a pop, I was desperately hoping for more than the solitary scallop to start us off. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. However the lone scallop that made it to our table was huge, boasting a natural sweetness that was complemented by the mild saltiness from the roe that came alongside. The accompanying side salad had seaweed strips in it and came across as zesty.Tuna Sushi Combination - The tuna combination consisted of 3 slices of tuna (Fatty, medium and normal) apparently flown in straight from Tsukiji in Tokyo and served atop blocks of sushi rice. Goes without saying that the tuna was fresh and the rice lightly tart without coming across as too loose or sticky. Only thing that I didn't like was the heavy handedness of the wasabi layer wedged between the tuna and the rice. And of course the price tag ($50++).Kurobuta Collar - Weighing in at 150g, the kurobuta collar was from the Teppanyaki counter and came across as sufficiently tender without the overwhelming pork taste. A sesame based dipping sauce completed the picture.Soy Seafood Ramen - If I may, the soy based seafood ramen was very good with the broth light yet refreshingly tasty probably due in part to the addition of sweet corn. The ramen itself was springy (apparently the ramen is made in house from a 110 year old recipe) and full of bite whilst the seafood was fresh. Portions are slightly smaller than your average ramen bowl though.Soy Cha Shu Ramen - The cha shu ramen's broth was comparatively heavier than that of the seafood ramen but the noodles were excellent as well. Cha shu pieces were tender and overall portion size was just right to keep nausea at bay. I am definitely sticking to the seafood ramen the next time round.A pretty satisfying dinner for 2 cost us in excess of $200, which is honestly a little on the high side. Service was good and food quality was definitely above average but I wouldn't rate it as excellent overall. I'll probably be back again, if only for the ramen.

For more reviews, please visit http://oyhz.blogspot.sg Was craving for their ramen, but the restaurant was full that evening.Thankfully the waiter arranged for us to be seated at the sashima section even though i just wanted to have ramen.Been there before, but was seated at the ramen area.So this time round, I had a good look at the sushi making process, the menu etc. A little overpriced imho. Stuck to our decision to satisfy my ramen craving. Visit http://oyhz.blogspot.sg for more photos continue reading

For more reviews please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.comA bit surprising that Hide Yamamoto was very sparse when we popped in for lunch over the weekend. We were the only ones present at the sushi counter! Hide Yamamoto serves up 5 different styles of Japanese cuisine, separately located at the sushi area, ramen section, teppanyaki tables, rotaba grill and sake bar. Don't worry, you're not restricted to wherever you sit, you can still order from the other menus even if you sit in a different section. Bits of the chef's east-west fusion style invariably find their way into all 5 menus, but you don't quite realize it because the cuisine, most of their sushi menu anyway, adheres to the traditional.Service was excellent as well. The staff anticipated our every need and we never had to call for any staff over. Our cups of green tea were never empty, and the staff was right by our side to take fresh orders barely 2 seconds after I flipped open the menu. Such efficient service was despite the fact that the wait staff always left our section to let us to dine in private. It's as if they had some kind of sixth sense as to when we needed to be waited upon.One small teensy weensy note though, on closer inspection of the bill, we realized that our green teas, which were refillable, cost a whopping $9 for the iced one, and $5 for the warm one. I don't know how rare the green teas were, but we thought that a difference of $4, just for ice, was a bit excessive. We opted for the 1) Sushi Course ($160): It was nothing short of awesome, and one of the more memorable ones I've had this year. Everything was executed with effortless flair and absolutely faultless. Not a single wrong move made here.2) Tuna Sushi Combination ($50), a trio of sushi comprising Fatty Tuna, Medium Tuna and Blue Fin Tuna Sushi: Absolute MUST-TRY3) Salmon Sushi ($8 each): sweet and clear4) Truffle Edamame ($13): an absolute must-try as well. We loved this. Aromatic and delicious.We'll definitely be back. continue reading

This place has a unique seating arrangement, pleasant ambience. I tried their seafood ramen, which includes vegetables, lobster meat, crab meat (real ones, not those instant sticks we can buy from supermarkets) and scallops for just $30+ per bowl. The other must try item on the list is wagu beef. continue reading
