Usher in the holiday season with an indulgent festive feast at Ichiban Bochi, which Singaporeans should be familiar with for their contemporary Japanese concept in a relaxing ambiance.
Do you know that no two Ichiban Boshi restaurants are the same? Each one has its own distinctive design, ambience, and specialty menu.
For example, Great World’s outlet specialises in Sakana (fresh fish), United Square in Kyoto Katsu (fried cutlet), NEX in Kaisen (seafood), Suntec City in Soba (buckwheat noodles), and Century Square in Hokkaido Ryori (Hokkaido cuisine), just to name a few.
You can celebrate the festive season in a different way other than the usual staples of turkeys and ham, with a selection of 4 festive sets to entice the Japanese food lover in you.
Its team of experienced chefs has curated these celebratory feasts, available from 9 Nov 2021 to 15 Feb 2022.
Plus, diners can receive a $10 Citibank Voucher with every Festive Indulgence set purchased, which makes the meal more value for your money.
Check out more of the 4 Ichiban Boshi Festive Indulgence sets:
Spicy Irodori Kaisen Gozen ($27.90)
One thing you would notice is that the set includes quite many components.
For this alone, a main of seafood in spicy broth, roast beef & salmon roe, sous vide pork soft bone mini rice bowl, potato cheesy balls, chawanmushi and fruit – making this a satisfyingly-filling meal.
The spicy soup was what I enjoyed best. You get a medley of seafood from prawn, flounder, squid, and clams, combined with vegetables and chunks of sweet pineapple in a spicy broth for a chockful soup.
The variety of tastes and textures, along with the slight kick of the spices, make this a delightful main meal.
The hearty soup is complemented with tender roast beef on crispy rice paper, ladened with salmon roe and drizzled with slight citrusy tataki sauce to cut the richness.
That is not all. If you are feeling for some carbs, the set also includes a mini rice bowl topped with extra tender sous vide pork soft bone and egg crepe with teriyaki sauce
Further enjoy with accompanying deep-fried potato balls with cheese-filled centre, smooth Japanese steamed egg custard (chawanmushi) and fruits.
Creamy Mushroom Chicken Yaki Gozen ($25.90)
A succulent chunk of grilled chicken steak takes center stage slathered with a cheesy mushroom cream sauce. The chicken is topped with chopped red and yellow capsicum to bring out the colourful festive mood.
Enjoy the chargrilled taste of chicken with mini bowl of rice topped with prawn, crabsticks, and veggies in a thick sauce.
You will also get fried prawn & cuttlefish paste in a beancurd skin roll served with a sweet-spicy Thai chili sauce.
Plus, a savoury side soup of cabbage & seaweed roll in dashi stock. The set also comes with a miso soup, chawanmushi and fruit.
Pork Rib Miso Nabe Gozen ($26.90)
If you are craving for the flavour and texture or pork, and something hearty, the large bowl of miso broth with udon on the side should be comforting.
Included with generous serving of pork ribs, earthy mushrooms, vegetables and fried beancurd skin, the added garlic chilli enhances the soup in terms of its depth of flavours
After having some of the miso soup, dip some of the udon within to savour the hearty soup in a different way.
Accompanying the main is a sushi roll made with barbecued eel, mango, cheese, and tempura flakes, which is kind of refreshing.
There is more? Yes, the set includes fresh yellowtail sashimi topped with sliced avocado, salmon roe, and citrus jelly. As well as chawanmushi and fruit.
Butter Demiglace Beef Steak Gozen ($26.90)
Indulge in a tender, juicy slab of premium beef steak served with demiglace and white sauce, sliced onions, and crisp bacon bits.
The beef comes in a heated plate, so that the meat and sauces remain warm throughout the meal.
This generous portion of meat goes well with stir-fried udon which is tossed with prawns, egg, and veggies.
On the side is a grilled minced chicken dish topped with cheese, capsicum, and shrimp roe.
Balance off the flavours and textures with a creamy egg mayo salad, a soft chawanmushi custard, miso soup and fruit.
