Teppei Japanese Restaurant

I have wanted to dine here since a year ago but I always missed the reservation date. So when 3rd August came, I finally remembered and called in at 10.30am and I actually managed to get through by 10.37. Only seven minutes. I felt like I was the luckiest person on earth especially when I realised how some have called for hours and not get through. I made a reservation for 4 and I had been counting down to this day ever since!

If I didn't recall wrongly, we had a total of 23 courses. Of which, some were really memorable and some were tiny little bite-sized treats.

One of my friends picked the fried rice out of four options for his main course. We made fun of him hahaha but he said it was one of the best fried rice that hes ever had and he refused to share it with us because we mocked his choice hahaha

Someone was celebrating his birthday and Teppei San made him a sashimi cake!

Salted caramel icecream to end off the meal.

It was a truly enjoyable omakase experience. I loved that every dish was a surprise and that Teppei San was really nice and humourous! When I was rubbing my tummy from being too full, he told me to jump around haha. And he was also eating this special grape that he imported from his hometown in Japan and he saw me staring at him eating it and he offered one to me! Haha super nice. We all went for the $80++ option and the entire experience was well worth the money!

They have now changed their reservation policy so do keep updated with them on their Facebook page!
