Estella and I made an appointment at Tatsuya Japanese Restaurant for the restaurant week, and I was so glad that I made the right choice of heading over for a meal (along with Amanda’s recommendation). The food was absolutely fresh, and mind blowing I wished I had more. Sushi chef Andy Loo happened to be working his magic on the wide array of fresh seafood spread in front of us, and I was absolutely impressed with the way he sliced them meticulously. And the way the foie gras was sizzling when it was being heated up left me salivating from afar. I have never seen anyone put so much effort into making sushis ever before. Estella and I was snapping away on our cameras because he looked absolutely professional and stunning while preparing our food. I swear I couldn’t take my eyes off the way he was working. I am definitely making my way back to this restaurant when the boyfriend is back. Absolutely amazing food. Haven’t ate in such happiness in a while.☺

Walked over to Tanglin mall for Brunetti. Heard about this cafe from Jon when I first went to Melbourne in 2009. Stuffed ourselves silly with cakes, tarts and macaroons to try out as much variety as we could. But I was a little disappointed with the lemon tart – it was too dense and the lemon wasn’t refreshing and flavourful. The San Remo however was surprisingly good, with a surprise on the inside halfway through savouring over its taste.

Bliss is when you’ve got a good company from a girlfriend to enjoy the best food together along with laughter that leaves you having a headache. Haven’t had such a good day in a long while. x

  1. …I chose the place for you hello. -_-

    Try Tatsu when restaurant week’s over. Good sushi places will always have itamaes making sushis in front of their customers.

    • AMANDA, By making a right choice to head over referred to deciding between Bistro du vin and this because we actually made two lunch appointments! (Okay la credit you liao) But yes you are my most trusty food source/advisor. Bring me to more places. You know what you do best!
