When I first visited Sun With Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe in May 2008, I remember being wowed by the tasty, authentic Japanese food, though the price for me was considered expensive at the time. Now, 8 years on, Sun With Moon is still going strong, drawing in folks with its consistently high quality food, while still maintaining its standards of Japanese savoir faire.Ambience at Sun With Moon is modern minimalist zen, well suited to a refined yet casual dining experience, living up to its name of combining 2 disparate elements. The large, spacious interior with clean lines benefits from its window side location of Wheelock Place mall, offering a view of the busy street below, along with natural lighting in the day. Contrast of light and shadows, created by bright, well placed spotlights, create an elegant setting over the dark wooden furniture and booths, while thoughtfully carved out spaces allow guests to pick from large communal group dining, to small intimate alcove dining. They even offer a large selection of magazines for browsing!Service at Sun With Moon is near fine dining status. The sharply dressed staff move and speak with a quiet, professional air, working quickly and efficiently, be it clearing tables, taking orders, or presenting the bill. There is the customary Japanese courtesy and hospitality, I notice staff bow slightly when speaking with guests, and exude a sense of personalised attention. However, I note that not all staff have the same level of product knowledge, especially if questioned about the rather extensive menu. Still, the level of service provided here exceeds that of many other restaurants.Food at Sun With Moon is all about authentic, traditional Japanese dishes, with several modern Japanese items. The extensive menu even has items which you won't be able to get in other Japanese restaurants in Singapore! Executive Chef Mr. Toshio Sawai heads up the kitchen, bringing to the table over 30 years of experience in Japanese culinary arts, offering dishes that are of high quality, and presented beautifully. Generally, I find each dish to be tasty, with an emphasis on flavour and freshness. Portion sizes are designed for individuals, though set meals are the norm here, and are incredibly filling! Prices are similar to other restaurants, budget about SGD $55 per person for a full meal here.Loved the zesty, sour sweet Yuzu Umeshu (SGD $9)! A blend of plum sake, with juice from yuzu fruit harvested in Tokushima Prefecture, Japan, this light, chilled beverage is refreshing and thirst quenching. Good!The Kamameshi Unagi & Yakiniku (SGD $31.80 Set Meal) here consists of an individual pot, where Japanese white rice is steamed together with a light katsuobushi (bonito fish flakes) and dashi (seaweed stock), along with aromatics such as straw mushrooms, carrots, lotus roots, chestnuts, konjac (elephant yam), and shredded egg. The rice absorbs all the flavour, making it incredibly fragrant and delicious! Mix it with the toppings of sweet unagi (grilled freshwater eel in teriyaki sauce), savoury thin strips of yakiniku (sauteed beef and onions), crunchy edamame, earthy seaweed strips, and a yummy soft boiled egg! Highly recommended! Served in Sun With Moon from 01 - 03 January 2016 as part of their New Year celebrations, the Ozoni / Zoni (SGD $12) here closely resembles the style in Tokyo, Kanto region. It features a soup made with dashi (seaweed stock), with a signature square mochi rice cake that has been lightly grilled. Other ingredients add depth of flavour and body to this soup, including chicken chunks, straw mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, spinach, kamaboko (fish cake), taro root, burdock root, and parsley. This light, savoury sweet soup is a great appetizer.Full Sun With Moon review: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2016/01/sun-with-moon.html continue reading

It's my first time at Sun with Moon and after thinking long and hard about what to order, I decided to get try their Kamameshi (steamed seasoned rice) because it's not something that I've seen at other restaurants.Before talking about the food, I just wanted to share that the restaurant was really spacious with nice decor, and the ambience was really nice. Service was also great - the waiter who took our order was really friendly and funny My Aburi Seafood Kamameshi consisted of salmon roe and seared prawn, scallop and salmon cubes. Hidden within the steamed rice were ingredients like chestnuts. It was alot like bamboo rice to me. Personally, I did not think it was nice...it was very ordinary to me, though my friend liked it. I will be back to try their other food but won't be ordering their Kamameshi again. continue reading

Just yesterday, I visited Sun with Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe at Wheelock Place, Orchard Road.It brought back memories of one friend as she was the one who first brought me here about 5 years ago. (Alice, I hope you're doing well!)The place still looked the same as how I had visited it years ago, with nice, comfy chairs that really provides comfort while eating your meal. Also, I like how tables are well spaced out, so that you're still able to have a, somewhat, 'private' conversation with your friends.I came here with two ex-colleagues-cum-friends and this place was really great for us to do some catching up.Big sisters of mine with 2 garfield soft toys they collected after the recent Garfield Run.The set meal here is expensive - one set meal for example (which I had wanted to order), was the Sukiyaki & Tempura set, which comes with sliced Aus beef and vegetables in hotpot, a cracked egg, rice, soup and assorted deep fried tempura.I did not order that as I was worried it might turn out too much for one person, on a diet too, to be having.So....I ordered the ala carte sukiyaki ($17.80)! The beef was served raw with soup broth. It cooked pretty quickly, about a few minutes or so. From this...To this! YAY!! Finally ready to eat. Big sister Serene felt that she likes the pork here - so she ordered an ala carte Pork Shogayaki ($12.80) instead of having the set, which comes with soft shell crab tempura, soup and rice. If you order rice separately, each order will cost you a hefty $3, which every Singaporean knows is expensive to pay for a bowl of rice! Big sister Christina ordered a Bara Chirashi set, which came with a soup, (a super small sized) chanwamushi - steamed egg - and the main dish (Sushi rice bowl with grilled eel, flame-seared salmon and scallops!). This set cost $28.80.When dining in a Japanese restaurant, how can you leave out the salad? I ordered the Bacon & Mozzarella Caesar Salad ($12.80). The appetising dish was well presented in a really huge bowl and was served with a special sauce, which I just poured it all over the salad without thinking twice. (Here goes the diet plan!) The salad tasted fresh and came with fresh mozzarella cubes which really added flavour to the otherwise typical mix. What also gave it a winning edge was also its thick cut bacon strips, that came with some fat on it. It tasted really good and I would seriously recommend this dish to anyone not on a diet.Lastly, it's dessert time! You cannot leave Sun with Moon restaurant without trying out their desserts. It's one of the most lightweight desserts I've eaten and this is one of the top choices of my review tonight.What else? DESSERT TIME!!For people who love variety in their food, I recommend the dessert trio ($9.80). The dessert comes with a goma pudding, a small slice of tofu cheese cake and green tea ice-cream topped with red beans. You will not regret this.My favourite was the goma pudding (also known as black sesame pudding). They managed to marry both rich black sesame paste and silky milk pudding together, making the smooth and bouncy texture of their matrimony that much more exciting to eat.I also ordered a Matcha Tiramisu (Green Tea Tiramisu), it costs $6.80. It tasted so light and fluffy, it was a perfect end to the heavy meal.In summary, I like the food in this place, but I feel that most food items are really expensive. I would only return if I have more money to spare!Location:Wheelock Place501 Orchard Road #03-15Singapore 238880Tel: +65-6733-6636Directions - From Orchard MRT Station (red line), exit the station on facing Ion Orchard. When you've exited, just turn towards your right. Walk straight and follow through to the underpass and when you've reached the end of it (there should be an escalator), use that to get to level 3.

My last visit to Sun with Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe was years back, after hearing lots of raves. Tonight, I return to this lovely place for dinner, and to recollect its sumptuous dishes.I was in the mood of sushi but being someone who don't eat much rice, these smaller portions of mix-and-match sushi suited me just fine (SGD$9.00 for 4 sushi rolls in 2 flavors) - one had a choice of Salmon Maki, Beef Steak Maki, Dragon Roll, Avocado Roll etc. I chose the Beef Steak Roll and Salmon Maki combination.The Salmon Maki was tasty - salmon sashimi slices embracing rice, minced salmon with mayonnaise and topped with salmon roe. For a salmon lover, this was an indulgence of all-things-salmon. The rice was soft and the salmon was sweetly scrumptious; it was easy to love this dish.The Beef Steak Maki was something unique to me - cheese and meat rolled with rice, topped with slices of tender beef steaks. A good combination of flavors and textures, I was glad I ordered this to try.Finally, I satiated my craving of soft shell crabs with this Soft Shell Crab Tempura (SGD$10.80) - another interesting dish since most Japanese restaurants serve ebi tempura only. The crab is encased in a thin layer of flour and fried to a perfect crispiness, yet its natural saccharine flavor is retained. It was tempting to order another plate of this but I was feeling very full already.For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to check out:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/06/dinner-at-sun-with-moon-japanese.html continue reading
