Tamashii Robataya @ North Canal Road - Whisky Sukiyaki With A5 Saga Gyu

When Chef Patrick of Tamashii Robataya told me that he is going to launch Whisky Suiyaki on his menu, I knew I need to make a trip down. After trying the sake shabu shabu which is still available on the menu, I know I am in for something great.

The A5 Saga Gyu Sukiyaki ($90/pax) comes with an appetizer, A5 Japanese beef Ribeye, assorted vegetables, rice and dessert. For an additional $40, you can add 100ml of Nikka Whisky Black Clear into your sukiyaki to accentuate the flavours further.

While the staff cooks the ingredients for the sukiyaki, you will be served with some appetizer of the day for you to enjoy as you waited for the food to be cooked. During my visit, I had Deep Fried Fresh Water Crab and White Shrimp topped with Uni.

The staff will first cooked a few slices of the A5 Japanese Beef Ribeye in the hotpot for the diner to enjoy the nartural flavours of the beautiful beef.

Instead of dumping all the ingredients into the boiling sukiyaki soup base to cook them, the version here is sort of a dry version. The ingredients are cook in the hotpot first before the sukiyaki sauce is pour into it. I thought this is a great idea. The cooking gives the ingredients more flavours compared to just throwing everything into the soup.

Once the ingredients are cooked, the staff will then pour the sukiyaki sauce into the hotpot before more greens are added. All this is allow to simmer for a little while serving.

To further enhance the whole experience and enjoyment, you may opt to add a 100ml of Nikka Whisky Black Clear ($40). The whisky is torched and pour into the hotpot to flambe the beef and vegetables. You won't get the strong alcohol of the whisky, instead a highlighted appreciation of the natural flavours of the ingredients in the hotpot.

Finishing up the sukiyaki dinner on a high note is the Honey Truffle Cheese Cake and Homemade Mochi. You will not regret saving some space for this yummy dessert to complete the night.

Note: This is an invited tasting
