Xiaokanghe, a Japanese restaurant located in the center of Singapore, the ingredients are really top-notch, the taste is also very good, and the per capita is quite expensive. But value for money.
This Japanese food is quite expensive in Singapore. The average per capita is about 500 SGD. The kaiseki cuisine inside is really good, the sashimi is delicious, the fish is also very good, and overall satisfaction.
The restaurant needs to be booked in advance. The Japanese-style Michelin restaurant has a very good service attitude. The service is attentive throughout the whole process of ordering and dining. Sitting around the stove, the chef is interacting with customers throughout the process, introducing the ingredients, methods, and food exquisite. Seafood is the main food. The eel is very plump, the fish roe is exploded in the mouth, and the sashimi is very thick. The rice is also eaten with seaweed. The sea urchin is very large. It is more traditional and the comprehensive level is still very high.
Singapore [Shoukouwa Xiaokanghe] was selected as a two-Michelin star restaurant by the first Michelin Guide Singapore in 2016. The restaurant focuses on Edo-mae sushi. It can be said that it is the fastest restaurant to receive a Michelin star because it only took five months.
The restaurant is a joint venture between Japanese gourmet Hanachiyo, the founder of Hong Kong's three-star Michelin sushi Shikon Sushi Shikon, and Emmanuel Stroobant Restaurant Group.
The restaurant is located in the One Fullerton building next door to the landmark Merlion. The location of the restaurant is very difficult to find. On the second floor, you will feel that you are in an office instead of a restaurant. Only 8 diners are accepted at a time, so the website shows that if a reservation needs to be charged a certain deposit in advance, it is strange that my deposit is not charged.
The lunch set menu has 16 dishes of MIO (worth S$180); there is also OMAKASE MIYABI (S320) without menu 20 dishes including: appetizer, four cooked dishes, sashimi, sushi, miso soup, Japanese pan fried Eggs and desserts; and HANA (S480) 25 dishes including: appetizer, four cooked dishes, sashimi, 13 pieces of sushi, miso soup, Japanese omelette and dessert; the evening meal does not provide a set meal of 180 yuan.
The ingredients here are fresh ingredients shipped by air from the Tsukiji Market in Japan. Even the water is processed by a special machine, and different vinegars are used for different fish species. The contents of the day will be made based on the fresh ingredients of the day, so you may not be able to eat the food every time you see the picture.
I ordered the normal set meal and an OMAKASE set meal, and it turns out that the OMAKASE set meal can better reflect the restaurant's level. The collocation of the ingredients and the materials are very attentive, able to cleverly match the order before and after, and the taste experience of the diners. And it can accurately adjust the more intuitive feeling on the taste buds, and can achieve a very balanced. In contrast, the S180 SGD lunch set meal is relatively plain.
The environment is really cramped, and the medical examination shared by the bathroom and the building is not very good! Because it takes ten seconds to eat a piece of sushi, I didn’t take many photos. The following pictures do not fully reflect all the dishes [doge]You know!
"Xiaokang and Shoukouwa" at first glance at its name, you can feel that it is a food store selling Japanese food! The reason why it is called a food store is because there seems to be no larger restaurant or something in the small Japan... . As Singapore’s two-Michelin star, I still want to try it~ It’s good to call the store three days in advance to make a reservation, and it is booked (not particularly popular?). There are not many diners in the restaurant. There are two recommended set meals for the restaurant. One kind of more than 300 SGD and the other more than 400 SGD. We chose the set of more than 400. After eating half of them, we realized that only the types of Sushi are different. The dishes in the kitchen are the same, but more than 400. The amount of food will be more, so if you don’t eat too much, it is recommended not to choose this set of more than 400, otherwise you will eat it to the end and you can’t eat it... The few Japanese meals I ate in Singapore did not surprise me, I feel Singapore The few Japanese foods here are quite general, but to be honest, Xiaokanghe is indeed better than "Maichi", not from the price point of view, but from the service level, the food products, and the chef of Sushi's Level. All these are considered comprehensively, so if you have to eat Japanese food in Singapore, it is recommended to be well-off and peaceful. If you want to eat Japanese food, go to Japan or Hong Kong. Obviously, “laksa” and Bak Kut Teh are more grounded in places like Singapore, but there is no doubt that Xiaokang and the sashimi in this shop are quite fresh. The preparation is also very delicate, beautiful and delicious, and the scenery outside the window is also very beautiful...The food, the beautiful scenery and the "beauties" in front of you, can there be: who!?
