Arashi Yakiniku Charchoal Grill is located at Boat Quay along Singapore river, a popular location among foreigners & Singaporeans alike for great seafood and some beer.
The restaurant emits a strong Japanese ambiance with their spotless clean wooden furniture and Tatami rooms. Their high quality grill system were also specially imported from Japan to ensure that customers do not leave smelly at the end of their meal.
The Ninniku Gohan ($4.80) is a must-order. The Garlic Fried Rice is light with a hint of saltiness + the fragrance of fresh garlic. Very yummy indeed. At only $4.80 for a bowl, this is definitely one of the nicest yet super value for money Garlic Fried Rice that I've had.
Japanese Tenderloin ($68.80)
And of cos, we can't miss out on the BBQ meat.
Kurobuta Pork Collar ($20.80)
The meat served at Arashi is definitely the best. Look at how pretty they look with the nice fats distributions.
The meat cooks really fast due to how thinly sliced they are, but yet they not too thin that you can hardly taste them. In fact they are just the right sizes to enjoy mouth watering juicy meat that literally melts in your mouth.
Meat are also served with various dripping sauces and my favourite is a ponzu sauce that is just a little tangy - perfect for bringing out the flavours and open up my appetite for more food.
Other than meat, Arashi also have the Assorted Seafood Platter ($28.80). The salmon comes marinated in a Japanese sweet-ish sauce, which I'm not really a fan of. However I do enjoy the scallop & tiger prawns which were very fresh.
Overall, I would say that the food here is really fantastic with one of the best services I had received.
We came in a group of about 10 pax and had one of the rooms to ourselves. 2 very polite service staffs attended to our table and throughout the meal, and they were very attentive to change our plates, the charcoals and topped up our tea.
They seems well-trained as well, and was able to recommend sauces to go with each type of meat.
Definitely highly recommended for high quality Japanese Charcoal Grill at affordable prices. A great place to hang with a group of friends.
