Akira Back

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Japanese/modern -

The chef of this epony­mous restau­rant was born in South Korea and raised in the US state of Colorado. His her­itage is ev­i­dent in the Korean-in­flu­enced Ja­panese fare served here, which comes with a heavy twist of Amer­i­cana. Take the tuna pizza, which is topped with sliv­ers of fresh tuna, dabs of ponzu may­on­naise, and a driz­zle of truf­fle oil. There’s also the grilled Alaskan king crab, blan­keted in a mildly spiced “dy­na­mite sauce”, and the sushi rolls, slicked with a sweet teriyaki-es­que glaze. With bold, glossy fur­nish­ings and dark tinted win­dows, the din­ing room has a Ve­gas vibe to it—a nod to chef Back’s home base, where he is an ex­ec­u­tive chef and part­ner of the Hakkasan Group.
