Brought my parents for a causal dinner at cuppage plaza . Restaurant operating pretty quiet , probably because it’s only Monday .
Bluefin tuna, Sea perch , salmon, mackerels, hotate scallops and ebi prawns. served cool and at its freshest .
We separately ordered Sea urchins at SGD$30+ , but I would say it’s not at my favor because it doesn’t taste cool enough , probably been taken out from chiller for quite awhile.
2. UNAGI APPETISER
This is so much better than the sashimis ! Sea Eel at its freshest , smoothest and juiciest !
Every piece is very soft and thinly sliced. some very thick slices of unagi got me feeling very full very soon, even before finishing my dinner. Thus, this thin sliced unagi is just the right portion .
The fire is set right in front of you , and you will be able to view the bubbling of the soup as it becomes warmer by the heat.
Very fulfilling ingredients here : Shitake mushrooms, two silky tofu, prawns, white fishes and vegetables . With it’s clear Japanese soup base, this is one warming dish I like after consuming some cold sashimis earlier.
4. Grilled dishes
This chicken liver is the most disappointing for us ! not well grilled , and the liver itself aren’t at its freshest. Yes, liver supposed to taste soft and mashy . but this livers tasted too raw and which apparently its not grilled long enough to eradicate the smell. Even drips of lemon doesn’t helps.
We were wondering why is it this fish still not swimming to us ! And waitress informed us that it requires longer time ( nearly an hour) to grill this fish evenly.
Featuring my parents’ favorite: Blackthroat Seaperch ! And I like this for its evenly spread of sea salt and spices that gave this sea perch a very pleasant aroma when grilled .
FOOD : Just a few picks to try out for dinner, and we concluded that we wont be back , as the chicken liver and Sea urchin is pretty bad .
SERVICE : Still acceptable services and my parents’ needs are attended to . But services tend to be slightly slow and got to remind them about what dishes have we ordered but not yet served.
AMBIENCE : Cuppage is always hyped during the night , with five bar’s live band performing just beside tomi sushi . Great place to hang out.
