Takeshi-San - New Japanese Restaurant in Holland Village That We Won't Revisit

holland_village_new_jap_restaurant
New Japanese restaurants excite me. I love Japanese food, and I live right across Holland Village, so when I noticed the opening of Takeshi-San, I told my friends that we need to visit. We popped by on a Thursday evening and scored the last available table. It was crowded and packed and we were pretty impressed by the crowd — the food and service must be good right? 
 
Well, unfortunately, that was not the case at all.

(RELOCATED AGAIN)Hashida Sushi Singapore - An Unforgettable Omakase Experience

photo Hashida Sushi Omakase 3.jpg
My omakase experiences have gotten, progressively, more expensive. While I was deliberating on where I should bring my best friend for a celebratory omakase meal, I consulted Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow on his thoughts on the biggest names in the Japanese cuisine scene in Singapore. Here were my options : Shinji, Shoukouwa, Hashida, Tatsuya, Jiro. Nat very patiently went through every option with me, and it was a no-brainer. Hashida, it was. I made a reservation online for lunch on a weekday and made my way to Mandarin Gallery with a racing heart.

Hashida Sushi was first opened in Tokyo, in 1966, by Master Sushi Chef Tokio Hashida. His son, Kenjiro Hashida, is at the helm of Hashida Sushi Singapore.

Chef Kang's Private Kitchen - Super Hard to Book Michelin-Starred Chinese Restaurant

chef_kang's_private_kitchen_garlic_crab_glutinous_rice
Chef Kang's Private Kitchen is one of the hardest-to-book Michelin-starred restaurants in Singapore. The small one-Michelin-starred outfit along Mackenzie Road has just 5 tables, and they have a whole line of loyal fans who return regularly, so it's not easy to get a seat here. I made a reservation about 6 weeks in advance, and my foodie friends were surprised that I managed to score a table! Truth be told, so was I. I was coming here with my dad and brother and was told over the phone that a minimum of 5 pax is needed for them to give us one of the dining rooms, so we were allocated a table next to the counter. That was a little disappointing but I guess, we were coming for the food more than anything else, so I agreed to it.

Holland Village Cobbler(Outside MRT/Decathlon) - please AVOID bringing expensive footwear here



 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hardly write negative reviews, I always try to support small businesses instead of well known multinational companies, and I love old folks. So it's sad that I have to write this to warn all of you who ever thought of, or are thinking of, going to the cobbler outside Holland Village MRT station.

Bistro Du Le Pin - Incredibly Affordable $120 18-Course Dinner Omakase with FREE FLOW WINE in Orchard

bistro_du_le_pin_dinner 
I posted a snippet of my dinner at Bistro du le Pin on Instagram stories and there were 250 sticker taps on it. This is when I knew I absolutely have to share about my dinner experience! I made a reservation weeks in advance for the 6pm seating, so make sure you book way in advance as well. I arrived promptly and the super friendly staff showed me to my counter seat and proceeded to store the cake I bought for my friend's birthday celebration in the fridge. There were a la carte options available but we were here for the $120/pax dinner omakase with free flow wine. And I would highly recommend that you go for that. I was super excited for the meal — I mean, come on, FREE FLOW WINE???
