New teppanyaki restaurant opens at Mandarin Oriental
Teppan-Ya, a brand new teppanyaki restaurant serving contemporary Japanese cuisine, overlooking the spectacular Singapore harbour, has taken over the space previously occupied by Wasabi Bistro at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. Located on level 4 of the hotel, Teppan-Ya offers a tantalising array of fresh sashimi, delicate handcrafted sushi, delectable tempura, a selection of grilled meats and vegetables, as well as traditional Japanese sweet treats.
Prepared live on spacious teppanyaki counters where the skilled chefs can be caught in action, piping hot plates of tender chicken and pork loin, juicy beef, succulent seafood and delicious vegetables are served with well-seasoned dipping sauces. Noteworthy dishes featured includes the Australian Wagyu beef ($110 for 100g), which provides diners a sensational bite with its richly marbled quality; plump Portobello mushrooms, glazed with sweet aromatic sauce and topped with savoury bonito flakes, as well as ripened Pumpkin slices, lightly toasted while retaining its original flavours. The signature Scamorza cheese ($18) also comes highly recommended – exquisite slices of cheese encased in a seared shell, presenting the perfect contrast in tastes and textures.
Alternatively, non-teppanyaki diners can opt for the scrumptious simplicity of the Hana Course (see main image above). Be awed by the restaurant’s signature Kumi’s No. 1, a heavenly combination of crab meat, rich avocado and white fish, beautifully-presented in an elegant baked sphere. The course comes with a salad starter, a premium selection of fine sashimi, crispy shrimp and vegetable tempura fried to golden perfection, a generous serving of grilled salmon, as well as a steaming hot bowl of rice and miso soup, accompanied with tangy Japanese pickles.
Finally, round up the experience with a refreshing slice of musk melon ($35) or classic sticky rice mochi cakes ($12) to end the meal on a sweet and memorable note.
Lunch sets (from $56) and dinner sets (from $98) are also available.
