The Mazechirashi at Aoki, a fine-dining Japanese restaurant by the Les Amis group, is arguably the best chirashi in Singapore. It has been on my to-eat list for the longest time but it's always so difficult to find people to dine with on weekdays during lunchtime. When my birthday arrived, one of my good friends decided to bring me here. I was ecstatic and couldn't stop going on and on about how excited I was!
