sashimi anyone? :D





maybe the human ear isn't good enough. we need measurements, figures, numbers, calculations to tell and convince us what good sound is. or do we have to satisfy an unspoken insecurity??

That's kind bro.

I've tried it as tabao at a friend's place. Its very good in flavour- prob slightly better than Boon Tong Kee imperial. Still cannot touch HK yellow fat chicken *sigh*

8 chicken rice stalls to try bro:

Most of the time, dinner will be at the Lotte food arcade (13th Floor) cos it's walking distance from the hotel. The above is beef noodles (Korean style) at Hanwoori Restaurant in Lotte.

Can you give me the manufacturer address so that I can go direct instead thru a shop which will definitely be mark up..... ::)

I enjoy Akashi at basement of Paragon for its Omakase dinner (around $120ppax) which I believe is fairly good value. This includes a good spread of fairly large cuts of sashimi (otoro, sweet prawn, salmon belly etc) + another 4-5 courses which the chef will prepare. Especially like the korobuta pork with thin udon soup.

Yes, please. Where's this from? Looks like chu-toro or something. Isetan? I love their sushi.
