Fukuharu @ Terrace Hock Choon


Click here for previous review of Fukuharu (June 10, 2009).


A more recent visit to Fukuharu provided a pleasant surprise: they've expanded their menu, with intriguing specials that remain firmly Japanese without fusion twists.


Cod fish roe with mayonnaise sushi. Milky, melt-in-the-mouth roe combined with soft rice and warm, creamy mayo for the ultimate comfort food.


Raw salmon tossed with grated Japanese yam. Generous slices of fresh sashimi were the main attraction in a recipe that might initially seem a bit bland.


Natto tempura. A different way of enjoying natto; this tones down the stickiness and strong flavour that some love and others hate in typical natto dishes.


Flash-seared butterfish with fresh onion ponzu. Well executed, though not as memorable as the other platters.


Grilled Eringi Mushroom. A treat for mushroom lovers, but kinda chewy.


Unagi tempura. Mild-tasting; it's still unmistakably unagi, but not as sweet. Nevertheless, it's a hearty, nicely battered preparation that's worth trying.


House sake washed down a satisfactory dinner.

  5. My only experience of natto went the same way as my first experience of Korean food at the age of 10. :-P

    Seems like a pretty exciting selection now. Good for them.
