Musubi @ JEM - Unique Japanese Otsumami And Wappameshi


Musubi is a new casual dining concept at JEM offering unique Japanese Otsumami and Wappameshi. Diners can look forward to a delightful selection of Japanese rice bowls - Seiro Gohan, inspired by the traditional culinary art of Wappanmeshi. Complete the meal with a nibble of tasty Japanese otsumami (small plates) and Shabu Shabu.

Cheese Imo Mochi 4.2/5

Corn Butter Shoyu Mushi 4/5

The Cheese Imo Mochi ($7) and Corn Butter Shoyu Mushi ($5) are available for its winter promotion. The Cheese Imo Mochi, deep-fried to golden perfection, has a cheesy centre. It is crispy on the outside while chewy and fluffy inside, and umami pops from the ikura. As for the Corn Butter Shoyu Mushi, the corns are extremely sweet.

Oyster, Crab & Salmon 3 Kind Seiro Gohan 3.8/5

Known for its signature seiro gohan, the restaurant has put together the Oyster, Crab & Salmon 3 Kind Seiro Gohan ($26) for its winter promotion. The steamed flavoured rice comes with Shio-koji Aomori Salmon, Ikura, plump oyster, crab meat and Shishito pepper.

Steamed Ika Siu Mai 3/5

The Steamed Ika Siu Mai has a unique presentation, unlike the usual one in a Chinese restaurant. Though the appearance was appealing, the taste fell below my expectation. I still prefer the Chinese version over this.

Crab Gravy Chawanmushi 4/5

The Crab Gravy Chawanmushi is a smooth, silky and flavourful bowl of steamed rice topped with crab meat that complements the seiro gohan for a complete meal.

Melted Braised Pork Belly Seiro Gohan 3.8/5

Lemon-koji Chicken Seiro Gohan 3.8/5

Besides the Oyster, Crab & Salmon 3 Kind Seiro Gohan, We also tried two other seiro gohan on the menu - Melted Braised Pork Belly Seiro Gohan and Lemon-Koji Chicken Seiro Gohan. I preferred the melt-in-the-mouth braised pork belly with hanjuku egg among the two. On the other hand, the lemon-koji chicken is a healthier choice with tender chicken and fluffy rolled omelette.

Steamed Beef Shabu Shabu 4/5

Another delicious and healthy option is the Steamed Beef Shabu Shabu. The thinly sliced beef is laid on top of a bed of cabbage. If I am right, the meat and cabbage are steamed together, allowing the cabbage to soak up the delicious beef essence.

Homemade Kokuto Pudding 3/5

Yuzu Macaron 3/5

For dessert, we had the Homemade Kokuto Pudding and Yuzu Macaron. The homemade kokuto pudding was mildly sweet with a custard-like texture, topped with crunchy cacao. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the citrusy Yuzu Macaron.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
