Apparently this is Globally renowned. My sis-in-law introduced this to Mary and the kids when she was over last. So that ticks Brunei as having this chain up and running. We needed some shopping, so Mary suggested a wee trip, again for her and Amy/Jude, to Itacho Sushi @ Bedok Mall. Yes indeed it is worth a visit. It is well up there on quality of produce used, even with certain sushi and sashimi’s being the ‘in-season’ specialities at the time. I like that. Add in too the use of Wagyu and Foie Gras – yes my love you have certainly gained my interest in this wee visit here.
I am going to have to have a moan though about Itacho Sushi @ Bedok Mall. I hate it when I order a dish, something like the egg custard. In the menu it says it is foie gras with truffle. Oh yes I am liking the sound of that. I am eating it and thinking that it tastes a tad weird, almost fish like. Then bugger me down the bottom there is a bloody prawn and crab stick. Call it out in the menu you silly people, PLEASE!!! I like raw fish and some shellfish, but not cooked fish. So if you are hiding cooked fish in a dish without naming it in the ingredients – please do so for future reference. It was the same for the creamy croquets I ordered – yeap laden with fish of some form.
Anyways to positives. Reasonably priced. Extremely fresh produce. And yep delicious for those I did end up eating. Here we go.
Yes it is in a shopping centre, so no airs or graces here. But it was a bloody nice restaurant for a lunch during a shopping spree. Not somewhere I’d be bringing my Mary for our anniversary meal or anything though.
Mary loves it here as it is one of the only in Singapore we have come across that does fresh sea urchin. So she ordered two dishes containing that. She said it was a mistake to order two, but you know what…. Anyways here is Sea Urchin Warship. From the oooos and aaaaas I can only assume this was a cracker.
Here’s those bloody creamy croquets I ordered. Looking amazingly well cooked and not greasy at all. Superb crunch and creamy potato puree within, and then boom seafood taste. Bugger. Over to Ollie to finish this off. Shame, shame…
This was a stunner though. Well made up for Itacho Sushi. This is the Kagoshima Wagyu Sushi. BOOM!!! An absolute belter, especially with the dipping sauce. Will be having this again, that’s for certain!!!
Now that bloody egg custard. Looking so so good. Little Foie Gras cubes atop, and flecks of truffle in there too. I get stuck in and whallop, it’s bloody fishy. Scoop a little more out and there are the two culprits. Ollie you are such a lucky boy today. Over to you mate. All yours.
Best Edamame ever. So so fresh and you can tell it is as it is still on the stalks. It does not come on stalks when it is pre-frozen. And you surely can tell the difference in the taste. Bloody delicious!!!
Another absolutely damned fine dish from the guys was this. Roasted Foie Gras sushi. Bloody genius. A little wasabi on top too. Nice presentation and a real funky flavour addition to the foie. Oh yes!!! This is a keeper.
Here goes the wife again with Sea Urchin with rice. Yes ‘expensive’ dish #2, you naughty thing!!!
OK so to get her back. Here is my second Wagyu dish, ha ha. Kagoshima Wagyu Beef Sashimi. AKA beefy butter. Simply sublime. This is an absolutely wonderful piece of mastery from Itacho.
Jude gets stuck in to Udon Soba Cha-Su with Pork Soup. Yummo. A cracker for the wee man. And it nearly all went. A bloody good sign of goodness from him.
Whereas Amy repeats her dish from last time. Udon Soba in Soup with Beef. She was quiet for at least 20 minutes. Great work on that Itacho. Yep, that is another good sign of some quality food!!!
I just had to try this. It is in the menu under “Salt”. You have a choice of 4 or 5 items, and a choice of 4 different salts to accompany it. I went with Shrimp Tempura with Rock Salt. I tell you what this was so so good. Dip dip in the salt and have a nibble on that. What an incredible difference that made to a tempura dish. Genius!!!
So there you have it folks a wee review of a new one for yours truly. Highly recommended by family Kennett, including sis-in-law BaiBai. Yes Itacho Sushi @ Bedok Mall is absolutely a must try. It was a superb lunch. So much choice. Seriously fresh produce from seafood to meat and vegetables. It was seriously a quality preparation and serve. Delicious all over, once I got over my moan of ‘hidden’ fish in unexpected dishes from the menu description. We’ll be back for certain. Go have a wee visit too. You will absolutely – ENJOY!!!
