Came back from Kushi Yakitori today,

I can say its not worth the price. Went for the 68++ with wife, found out seasonal fish is only 1 serving per TABLE. and the seasonal fish is tasteless anyway.

The tuna belly(toro) is a real letdown, even the toro at Manpuku at Tampines one is MUCH better then this. Absolutely dissapointing, my wife only ate 1 piece out of the 3 pieces. I didnt want to touch it either.

Now the oysters, typical kind that i get from Sheng Shiong. wtf?
Taste wise its not sweet at all. yucks.

Lobster soup, hmm, its like miso soup with 2 piece of lobster inside. hmm, lots of msg, had to drink lots of green tea, didnt even finish the soup.

Hamachi kama is OK, tasteless but edible.

Wagyu beef, meat is not so tender as expected, the quality i get from the butcher at parkway is 5x better then what they served. Didnt even finish it, like eating some low quality beef.

Salmon belly is not inside the 68++ menu, wtf? Waitress said its only ala carte.

Lau sai 8x tonight.

Good points:

Scallop was sweet, but slightly slimy(not fresh)

Hamachi was OK, not sweet but edible.

Ebi was interesting, huge raw prawn. Slightly slimy again(not fresh).

Raw beef with raw egg is not bad, cant imagine eating more then one serving though.

Conclusion, AVOID.

Overall, my experience so far with jap raw food is, either tatsuya for EXCELLENT seasonal fishes, handrolls, Toro & Uni.

OR

Parkway Sakuraya for small to medium bites of Hamachi, Kamachi, Hand rolls and other assorted stuff, not so bad.

have you guys heard of TANYOTO 谭鱼头 steamboat @ Liang Court?

I have read it in another forum, searched for reviews and seems like reviews not bad. One of them is HGW another is from CC. However the price seems on the high side.

HGW reviews: http://www.hungrygowhere.com/singapore/tanyoto/

Now there is a deal on this, at $24 nett for the BUFFET. But is only for supper time, which is 9pm-2am. Usually this timing eat buffet not very good, though some of us here have buffet outings for dinner which will finish the meal about 10pm, so sama sama.



50% Off on TANYOTO 谭鱼头 Steamboat Supper Buffet (Clark Quay Flagship) @ $24nett including Soup Base & Free Flow Plum Juice

Interested on an outing to there? The soup seems to be using fish head but not too sure. The website said will try to get menu from the merchant and upload. Need to register for account to purchase. I will always ask my friends to buy the vouchers themselves in case some one back out.

Some buffet places use such promotion to clear their leftover dinner items. I worry that this place uses the same tactics. Otherwise the timing actually suits me well. After work I can pop by. Lol.

Beach Road FC's cai peng at B1 not bad wat. The chicken rice and ayam penyet at B1 also not bad. Upstairs the Jin Hua Fish Bee Hoon, tiong bahru roast pork rice and char kway tiao also not bad. The Jap food is decent and not pricey.
beach road food centre ? you refering to army market ?

ayam penyet is small in portion, x2 can be very pricey.


where are all these stalls ? alll at beach road fc or amy market ?
