I’m back at Barashi-Tei, my favorite place when I craved for Japanese food. Aside from quality food they served, its quiet accessible when you’re in Bugis, Bras Basah or Dhoby Ghaut area.
It’s so nice to be reunited over dinner with my favorite blogger friends — Honey, Cherry and Vet. I was happy to see these ladies after moons ago. As usual so much chitchat while eating and discussing our favorite among the dishes being served. My taste buds are consistently loving the Spicy Salmon Maki, Foie Gras and Sashimi. These are my top favorites!
As you can see from the photo you’ll get thick slices of sashimi in four different fishes. It smells fresh and taste good with their special soy sauce with wasabi paste. You’ll get 12 pieces of this serving.
Aburi Sake Sushi (2 pcs @ S$9.80)
Japanese rice is cooked perfectly and topped with generous slice of smoky salmon. I like that the rice isn’t too much, just nice for someone like me who’s trying to cut carbs on my meal.
Foie Gras Sushi (2 pcs @ S$15.80)
My favorite Foie Gras in sushi. I like the texture of this one, it’s soft inside.
Deep Fried Softshell Crab (S$12.80)
I am trying to stay away from deep-fried food but the crunch with this one made me eat more. It’s good to dip in their special made sauce.
Wagyu Beef Don (S$38.80)
The beef is sliced thinly and medium rare, sided with rare boiled egg. I like the tenderness and juiciness of the beef. It melts in your mouth.
Unagi Salmon Mentai Maki (S$14.80)
The non-spicy version of Salmon Maki with ell, salmon, egg and cucumber in the middle.
Ikura Chawanmushi w/Salmon Roe (S$6.80)
It’s a steamed Japanese egg custard, a known appetizer in Japan. It consists of ginkgo nuts, shiitake mushrooms, Japanese fish cake and an egg mixture flavored with Barashi-Tei spices. I shall try one when I’m back in Japan.
Ika Kabayaki (S$16.80)
It’s nothing so special, just a grilled squid with sauce. The texture when you chew is just right, it’s not rubbery.
Spicy Salmon Maki (S$14.80)
This is my all time favorite in their menu. I highly recommend. If you like tasteful Maki then you’ll surely love it. It has Crispy Tempura Prawn in the middle, so it crunches when you bite with Broiled Salmon on and special spicy sauce on top.
Kushi Mori (S$18.80)
Skewer Platter, you get to choose eight sticks when you order.
