Unagiya Ichinoji Dining (Suntec City)
3 Temasek Boulevard #03-307 Suntec City Mall Singapore 038983
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3pm, 5:30pm – 10pm (Mon – Sun)

Unagiya Ichinoji Dining is a Japanese dining concept specialises in serving unagi in three signature styles from Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka prefectures. This is its overseas outpost by Miyagawa, a famous 125-year-old unagi restaurant chain from Japan.

The highlight of the menu is their Hitsumabushi, a signature dish with eel cooked Nagoya-style – slender, and crisp.

Order this bowl of either steamed white Japanese rice or 16-multigrain Japanese rice generously topped with grilled unagi.

Almost like a ceremony, you can eat Hitsumabushi in four ways. First, divide your bowl into four portions and enjoy one portion on its own, relishing the eel’s delicate flavour. Second, add nori, wasabi, green onion, and mentaiko (spicy cod roe) and savour your rice and eel flavoured. Third, pour clear dashi, mix and eat. Lastly, create your own mix.

Eel fans will appreciate the distinction in how it’s grilled. Steamed-then-grilled, or accompanied with other ingredients, or torched to make it crisp outside and tender inside.

Choose between two special home-made unagi sauces – the saltier Japanese version with higher shoyu content, or the sweeter Singapore version.

ChopeDeals: Unagi Hitsumabushi Set at $29.80 (U.P $38.35)

Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3pm, 5pm – 12am (Mon – Fri), 6pm – 10:30pm (Sat), Closed Sun & PH

Chi Kinjo is a modern sake and highball den, designed as a split-level restaurant. Upstairs is a cosy and modern Japanese resto while the bar is located downstairs. You’ll notice the stark contrast in ambiance as the bar is dimmer for a more intimate dining and drinking experience.

Helmed by Chef Lamley Chua, Chi Kinjo is part of the Coterie Concepts along with bars and eateries Sum Yi Tai, Mona Lounger, and Eliza.

Highlights include the Kaffir Lime Karaage, made with chicken thighs marinated in kaffir lime and deep-fried until crispy, keeping the insides still juicy. Dab some of their red pepper mayo to add a subtle fiery flavour to the chicken.

In the mood for steak? They have the Smoked Striploin Steak uniquely drizzled with charcoal oil. This grilled striploin is accompanied with a black garlic onion cream-style sauce and some Jerusalem artichoke aka sunchoke chips.

The nigari here is prepared aburi-style, where the fresh fish meat is torched to intensify its flavour. Try the Salmon and Foie Gras prized for the goose liver marinated in miso and milk to enhance its fattiness. The delicate Buri Cheese is a more delicate nigari option made with seared Buri fish and topped with tobiko cheese.
