Dinner @ Rakuichi Japanese

April 3, 2010 in Japanese by thywhaleliciousfay

Headed down to Dempsey cause we wanted Japanese cuisine (Our favourite!) and the only Japanese restaurants which I had researched and saved on my list of places to check out were Rakuichi and Zento. Both located in Dempsey. (^^lll) Haha. Chose Rakuichi over Zento for us cause I read from online forum (Yes! I did my homework well. Hee) that they served really fresh sashimi. And we love our sashimi. =p

Dish #1

Dish #2

Decided to try sea eel cause recently I read an article which shared that one should order Anago (Cooked sea eel), Tamago (Cooked egg. Also known as egg omelette or roasted egg) and Kohada (Raw gizzard shad) to test if that particular Japanese restaurant is up to standard.

And well… I am still pretty new to sea eel. Haha! But I liked how it tasted when I wrapped it with seaweed and some shredded pieces of cucumber.

Dish #3

And yes, we ordered Tamago cause I wanted to put the theory to test. Haha. And I concluded Tamago taste better served warm.

Dish #4

And this was love! We kinda customised it by choosing what we wanted on it. Haha. And there’s my specially requested sea urchin! I’ve no idea why I had a sudden craving for it that night. Not forgetting our favourite tuna belly too! Love! And I’m starting to get hooked onto flounder fish. Sashimi style of course. Hee. Though I got to include that the prawns were served live. The one he had was still moving when he tried to remove the head from the body. (^^lll)

And we were served the whole wasabi root! Now… I had wasabi served fresh (As in non processed), but not this fresh. Haha. I’m impressed!

Dish #5

Dish #6

10 Dempsey Road, #01-22, Singapore

Though my tea pot soup (Dish #6) was normal while he found the beef of his beef udon (Not pictured) not up to standard.
Very attentive. Effort was made to check on us, making sure our cups of sake was topped up and cleaning our dishes promptly although we were seated outside.
