This is the first time that MaguroDonya Miuramisakikou Sushi & Dining Restaurant is doing an overseas venture, flying in fresh bluefin tuna exclusively with its flight partner All Nippon Airways (ANA), and aren't we Singaporeans fortunate that they have chosen to open here! To ensure and maintain quality and freshness of the Maguro, a tradition known as shinkei-jime is being practiced by inserting a spike into the hind brain of the tuna to destroy the spinal cord and halt production of lactic acid. It is then kept frozen at -60°C. The restaurant also has its own fleet of fishing trawlers which enable them to curate the freshest fish around the world to be flown directly via ANA to Singapore within 24 hours.

We began with the Three Cuts of Hon Maguro Sashimi (SGD$38.00), consisting of the Akami (top loin), Chutoro (bottom loin) and Otoro (belly). The raw Maguro slabs were well-marbled, well-oiled, smooth and extremely tasty, fleetingly sweet with freshness of the expensive bluefin tuna, and tender.

The surprise item came next - a hidden gem that is not available on the menu but please request for it from David or the friendly chefs. This is the Hon Maguro Tomi Sashimi (SGD$58.00) - the head portion of the Maguro. These slices came erect in their frozen states, and the correct to indulge in them is to dip them into the Sashimi sauce and place it daintily on the tongue to let it melt gradually, like a dream. And melt it did - gently, spreading lusciously across the tongue deliciously before the teeth snapped the soft pieces up.

Following that, we had the "wow", as labelled by David. The Yamamori Hakkiki Gunkan (SGD$12.00) which is also "warship" / "battleship" in Japanese, is a mound of scraps of scraped tuna piled high onto Japanese rice rolled with sushi. The sight of this was appetite-whetting.  We were to bury a lot of wasabi within the mound of shredded Maguro, and then eat it in one bite. The mountain of scrapped tuna was springy in texture, succulent, and utterly tasty. With the piquant sting of wasabi breaking through the layers of sweetness, it was almost a divine combination. The Japanese rice was soft and firm in texture as well, because of a unique diagonal method of cutting it, executed by the Japanese chefs. Best of all, even the rice itself was freshly-dehusked shortly before being flown to Singapore.

Next, the items David described as "mmm". We had the Bara Chirashi Don (SGD$16.00) - consisted of Maguro bluefin tuna sashimi, omelet, salmon sashimi, salmon roe and freshly-grated wasabi - the perfect bowl of happiness that it was named after. The sashimi were diced evenly, and David stresses on the freshness of the ingredients- unlike other chirashi don usually known to be made of the cast-offs during sashimi preparation, this was not the case here. Everything was prepared for its purpose, so that the quality remained top-notch and fish buoyant with freshness. As for the rice, it is as described above and its quality complements the raw fish very well.

Finally, a lunchtime special - the Hon Maguro Hikkaki Aburi Don (SGD$36) - where the torching was performed at our table by Daivd himself. We first examined the raw form of the dish in a pretty pink hue before the flame did its duty. One mouthful was all it took to experience the richness of the flavour of this specialty - devoid of the sweet rawness of the Maguro now, and was replaced instead by a smokey aroma tinging the fish. The texture was succulent and yielded to the palate pleasantly. The rice was slightly moistened from the oil of the Maguro during the torching process, even infused with a tinge of flavour - awesome! I wish this item were available for dinner as well.
