Tatsuya – An Extravagant Aburi Chirashi Bowl

P1050542

The chirashi bowl is one of my favourite Japanese dishes. My usual go-to place is Aoki – well known for their high quality mazechirashi.

I was very intrigued by Tatsuya’s aburi version and went there for lunch yesterday.

I browsed through the menu and couldn’t find the famed bowl that made it to the top 5 chirashi bowls in Singapore . I checked with the waitress and understood from her that this is a specialty dish that is not in the menu. The aburi chirashi bowl is available in 2 sizes at $150 and $180. She recommended the larger size because the other one is a really small portion and even volunteered further information that the aburi chirashi bowl is specially popular amongst the Indonesian Tai Tais. :)

My chirashi bowl was ready in no time with 2 torch burners at work.

There is no doubt that Tatsuya does a very good chirashi bowl and I certainly did not expect less from a restaurant that imports their ingredients from the Tsukiji market.  Besides the usual toppings like tuna & salmon, Tatsuya indulged with premium ingredients like caviar, uni, scallop, shrimp and even a thin slice of foie gras.

Overall – It is a delicious lunch but the price tag is a little too high. Perhaps I will go for the affordable bara chirashi ($35.9) next time…or maybe I should just stick with my fave Japanese restaurant, Aoki. :)

A Tribute to Eggs

A Tribute to Eggs

As I laboured on some macaroons for mom’s 60th Birthday, I came to realise the importance of eggs. Eggs – they add flavours; they bind; they aerate; they beautify; they thicken; they are nutritious. Add Flavours: As much as they taste very good on its own, eggs add a special flavour to so many dishes.Read More
