Fukuya, a new Japanese restaurant in the JCC! It is located behind Science Centre. Once you enter JCC, you need to walk towards the Recreation Complex deep inside. Fukuya is right next to the swimming pool!

We were seated in the VIP room! 11 seats for us and our guests for this food tasting session! Tasteful black and gold pictures adorn the room and the restaurant with traditional Japanese sake on the floor!
Each and every one of us were served a 7-course meal!! OMG!! Let's walk you through!!
Zensai, means Appetiser. $10.80.
It's got green and brown seaweed and a piece of lettuce at the bottom. The top is the star of this dish. It's seafood mayo! The crunchy fish roe adds dimension to this dish! The trick to eat this is to eat it whole (because the green seaweed is extremely salty when eaten alone) if the size of your mouth allows. All the tastes — salty, sweetness and sourness — dance harmoniously on your tongue at the same time! It's truly flavourful — I now finally fully understand the meaning of this word!!
Sashimi! Fukuya Tokusen (specially selected) Platter. $68.80.
I don't eat raw fish but I decided to just try them all since it's a food tasting session! So it's my first time eating so many raw fish in a sitting!
Halibut fin muscle (best!), salmon, toro, giant prawn, tai, Shima Aji, and others that I dunno!
Very fresh!! Real taste of sea..food! It's because the chef flew them in from Japan! He told us that quality is of his utmost concern!
Dobin Mushi! Soup in a teapot! $10.80.
The ingredients are not fancy but you get one big fat oyster! Two pieces of different mushrooms, bamboo shoots, big spring onions, etc~
Really super nice!! Drink it without lime first~ Savour the original sweetness the juicy oyster and mushroom brings out in the soup! Then maybe add lime to one spoonful of soup for your next mouthful! Try the difference! Don't put the lime into the teapot though, I've heard the other food tasters regretting about that, lol~ Luckily I didn't XD
Gintara Mentaiyaki — cod fish with fish roe mayo lightly grilled with naked fire on the surface!! $20.80.
All sorts of yum!!!!!!!! I love this!! I love to eat whole/part of a whole fish slices like this!! Nyan~!
No burnt smell nor taste despite how the Mentaiyaki looks!!
Modern Fukuya Aburi Sushi Mori — where each sushi has their own sauce/taste, so no soya sauce is required. $28.80.
Yummy yummy off-the-menu nigiri sushi!! XD
Though I was afraid, I've always wanted to try Uni!! It's SUPER CREAMY!! Thick texture but the taste is just the very fresh taste! Wow~!! Plus the crunch of the big fish roes on top! Yummy!
All of the nigiri except for the Uni has wasabi and I don't like wasabi but the wasabi here is mild! Your eyes will be safe from tears, don't worry!
Some of them are lightly cooked on the surface, very nice!!
Seafood Ramen. $26.80.
Now...... The ramen with the underrated name! The chef didn't reveal how he made the soup until we've tasted it!! It's actually really sweet despite its spicy-looking colour! Vegetables and tonnes of other stuff blended together and boiled into soup! OMG!! Heavenly sweetness! Super nice and healthy! So nutritious!!
The noodles are cooked just nice and do not stick to your teeth nor each other! The ingredients are aplenty! Prawns, clam, hotate, cabbage, squid, crabmeat, Japanese fish cake (lightly charred on the pink surface!), and many more! Generous servings for each of us really shows a lot of the chef's sincerity in giving customers his best!!
Kyoho (slip-skin grapes first produced in Shizuoka, Japan in 1937) Ice Cream with Kuri Kanroni (boiled chestnut). $8.80.
Last but not least, DESSERT!!
OMG~~ It's so sweet and smooth and creamy and delicious!! Mix your mouthful with the boiled chestnut and cream at the bottom and savour this new sensation! Really great match!! The kuri has its own kind of sweetness and it does not clash with the kyoho grapes taste, they embrace each other~!
I looove this dessert!!
Favourites: Starter, Gintara Mentaiyaki, Ramen and Kyoho Ice-cream. I can't just pick one! XD
