The wife and I have a shared calendar that will display automatically on our iPhones. We have this shared calendar so that we know where each other will be for certain days. I am the more forgetful one and can’t remember that she said she will be meeting her girl friends for tea etc. It’s also for her to know where I am eating with other friends!
The interesting part is that sometimes, we have a ‘date night’ appearing and there’s no venue listed. I am to meet her somewhere and she will bring me there. This was one of the dates.
She was bringing me for a Japanese meal at Fukuichi Japanese Dining at TripleOne Somerset (formerly known as Singapore Power Building).
The appetizer for the night was shredded tuna that was very addictive. Both of us had 1 each and we were actually wanting more.
We were like smiling to ourselves because we thought of our Nobu adventures. We will drop by Nobu and have the same bentos if that city we are visiting has a Nobu. This looks a little similar!
The Chirashi Zushi. ($32)
I have been thinking of chirashis recently and this was pretty good. One of the freshest seafood you can get and oh, if you are the one of those who likes to try everything, there’s almost everything inside here!
We had an observation: the wife’s food was served in rectangular boxes, mine’s in a big round bowl.
If you are ordering something to share, you should try this! Grilled beef with Goose Liver Sauce. When it’s served, if you do not like liver, you will smell a slight liver smell that might put you off. If you are a foie gras person, this combination of very very tender beef and the goose liver sauce will melt your heart. It’s really very very good!
Not rectangular, not round, but a square plate’s that curved for the food we are sharing.
(OK, roll your eyes, we sometimes just talk nonsense when we eat, don’t you all?)
We went on an weekday evening and it’s busy but not super crowded which was nice. We like the sashimi here which was really fresh. The pricing is also very reasonable.
