Singapore is abundant of Japanese restaurant choices. Everywhere you get to find Japanese restaurant. One of my go-to Japanese restaurant if I want somewhere central and accessible, I often go to Barashi-Tei. It is a 8-minutes walk from Bugis or Dhoby Gout MRT. It is found in the busy area of Middle Road.
I am excited to learn that Barashi-Tei got new dishes in their menu and I can’t wait to try all of it. I also wanted to try again my favorite sushi in Barashi-Tei.
Foie Gras Sushi $15.80
This comes in 2 pieces. I think this is a must-try dish. The foie gras is firm and perfectly-cooked in the outside with a hint of smokiness and inside is soft and tender. Some foie gras can be to mushy which is not very appetising for some people.
Who likes sashimi? This platter is the one for you. You get 12 pieces fordifferent types of sashimi that is fresh,
thick and delicious. Dip in Japanese soy sauce with wasabi, you are in sashimi heaven.
Aburi Sake Sushi $9.80
This is broiled salmon that comes in 2 pieces. Here, we had a few orders because we are a group of 6. Another hit that is simple but delicious. You can taste the smoky and broiled surface of the thin fresh salmon on top of the well-cooked Japanese rice.
Unagi Salmon Mentai Maki $14.80
I love makis! This one contain ell, salmon, egg and cucumber. I can have several of these in one sitting.
Ikura Chawanmushi $6.80
If you are wondering what this is. This is a Japanese egg custard. It is often an appetiser dish in Japan. This one has a generous amount of salmon roe on top. I love salmon roe! The texture of this dish is very much like a custard, soft but not runny.
Deep Fried Softshell Crab $12.80
Here is a crab shell that you can munch without any trouble. Dip in light soy sauce and maybe add in a bowl of rice and you have perfect meal.
Ika Kabayaki $16.80
This is a big healthy grilled squid for you with tasty marinated sauce. I am thankful that it does feel leathery an no need to exert too much effort to masticate.
Wagyu Beef Don $38.80
This is a dish for meat-lovers. A bowl of thinly-cut Wagyu beef will attract meat-loving dudes like my husband. The beef
is cooked medium rare, juicy and very yummy.
Spicy Salmon Maki $14.80
Last but not the least, one of my fave in Barashi-Tei. These are maki made of crispy tempura prawn for that added crunch, broiled salmon with spicy sauce. Don’t worry it is not that spicy. I can have the whole platter of these and I would be happily satisfied.
Do visit Barashi-Tei if you are around the area and try their new dishes as well. Actually, I am dropping by Barashi-Tei during the long weekend because I can’t seem to get enough of their yummy maki dishes. I also want my kids to try their gelatos: Yuzu and Black Sesame.
See you there!
