Dinner @ Sushi Kondo

September 15, 2017 in Japanese by thywhaleliciousfay

Except for reading that Kondo Masayuki was the head chef at Nogawa from 2005 to 2012, there was not much information of Sushi Kondo on the internet. Being curious, I got my my friend to check out Sushi Kondo with me.

Located in Sentosa Golf Club, my friend and I arrived punctually at 7.30pm. So while I know it isn’t easy to get to the restaurant, I was still surprised to see we were the only diners at Sushi Kondo that night. Actually… There were golfers but they chose to sit at the alfresco area.

And from the dinner menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), my friend and I ordered:-

1) Omakase course, $130 comprised of:-

(A) Dish #1 (above) – Appetiser.

(B) Dish #2 (above) – Sushi assortment of yellowtail, smoked big eye snapper (kinmedia), sweet shrimp (ama-ebi) and scallop.


(C) Dish #3 (above) – Clam (hamaguri) soup.

(D) Dish #4 (above) – Grilled belt fish. This was tricky to eat because the fish had way too many bones.

(E) Dish #5 (above) – Braised octopus and yam.

  
  
  

(F) Dish #6 (above) – Sushi assortment of horse mackerel (aji), medium fatty tuna (chutoro), seaweed-marinated kish fish, salmon roe, tuna hand roll and rolled egg omelette (tamago).

(G) Dish #7 (above) – Fig and grape.

2) Omakase course, $200 comprised of:-

(A) Dish #1 (above) – Appetiser.

(B) Dish #2 (above) – Sushi assortment of sea bream, squid, geoduck and medium fatty tuna (chutoro).


(C) Dish #3 (above) – Soup with tuna belly.

(D) Dish #4 (above) – Braised golden eye snapper.


(E) Dish #5 (above) – Radish served with foie gras, fungus, salmon roe and water shield.

(F) Dish #6 (above) – Seaweed-clam tempura.

  
  
  

(G) Dish #7 (above) – Sushi assortment of horse mackerel (aji), premium fatty tuna (otoro), seaweed-marinated kish fish, sea urchin, hand roll of premium fatty tuna and pickled radish, and rolled egg omelette (tamago).

(H) Dish #8 (above) – Peach and melon.

Our meal at Sushi Kondo wasn’t a fanciful one with the restaurant’s interior being pretty dated. But we were satisfied with our dinner nonetheless. My friend and I happened to dine at Sushi Kondo a week after a disastrous Japanese meal elsewhere. So yes, we were happy we could enjoy decent Japanese food at reasonable prices.

Head chef Kondo Masayuki was like a caring father as he would dearly watch over us whenever we took the first few bites of our dishes. When I was having my radish with foie gras dish, he must have realised I was struggling with just a pair of chopsticks because he silently passed me a spoon. So sweet.

And if one’s interested, Sushi Konda has lunch menu (pages 1, 2) too.
