Dinners at mikuni are always so very enjoyable. see recent post on a wonderful ikuni dinner on 31.3.2014. We were there again on 23.6.2014. This time we ordered the chirashi don, oysters & golden prawns, in addition to the usual. The oysters were good. at 50% discounts, it was S$14 for 3 pieces. the ones we had recently at chikuwatei was better but more ex – 2 large ones for S$22. The chirashi don was so, so very nice. This must the best in singapore or anywhere for S$45++ after 50% Feed at Raf
Needless to say, it was far, far better than sun with moon or chikuwatei. Not only there was uni, 2 pieces of chu toro, & a huge bogan ebi, all the other cuts like salmon, tai, hamachi, hotate were so sweet & fresh & so very many. It was kind of a late discovery for us, as we dined quite a bit at mikuni but we tend to take the cooked food rather than sashimi.
We had the usual botan ebi sashimi (S$42 for 3 pieces) & had the head deep-fried. & we all loved the sous vide tako kari kari age.
the sake was ex… S$50 & only 25% discount & the golden prawns (basically teppanyaki large prawns with lots of mayo) was really good!
Each of us had about 5 prawns, so there must bye 20 pieces. we took very little mayo but this mayo taste was very good. The lobster uniyaki today was below the usual standard. I had always liked the lobster but somehow this time the lobster meat did not have the usual bouncy fresh texture. I couldn’t say it was bad but c/w the golden prawns, it was substantially poorer.
The kagoshima wagyu konabe was as good as ever. The bill came to S$239nett for 4pax (c/w S$205 for 4pax at chikuwatei & such huge guff in quality of food). Cxcluding the sake, it would be S$195nett or S$165++ for 4pax, really good deal. I think i gonna go back just for the chirashi don.
