4. Ishin Japanese Dining
The one thing that would make a dish even better is if cheese is incorporated into it somehow. That is the case with Ishin’s Kaki Cheese Yaki. The name literally means Cheese Grilled Oysters, and it is a creamy heaven in a shell. The dish is served in the oyster shell itself of fresh chewy oysters with a concoction of cream, cheese, onions and mushrooms. More than a generous portion, having one is enough to sample its exquisite taste. Another popular dish is the Sakura Soba; soba noodles served on a bed of ice to stay fresh and a cup filled with soba with spring onions and wasabi served separately, for patrons to dunk the noodles in. The amount of spring onions and wasabi is according to individual preference. This refreshingly cold dish is just a joy to eat on a hot day.
5. Rising Son
The sizzling prawns here at Rising Son are beyond delectable and definitely worth a try. The prawns are deep fried beforehand to retain its juiciness and is served in a sizzling pan topped with creamy sauce that somewhat highlights the dish altogether as the herbs and spices taking up the creams would make a little dance on your tongue and in turn, it will make you dance as well. Jokes aside, this dish is worth every sweat there is on getting your hands on this beauty.
