Tucked down a narrow passageway, traditional Japanese restaurant Tatsu focuses on sushi and teppanyaki, complete with dedicated sushi and teppanyaki counters. The restaurant's conservative, almost functional decor should give you a hint of the cuisine here: predominantly traditional, though there are contemporary touches here and there. A good, solid restaurant, the food is consistently good and well executed, and the service is faultless. Its uber central location at Asia Square Tower 2 means that it packs in a good lunch crowd who come for its premium bento meals.
Have the signature pitan tofu, an appetiser of tofu topped generously with a rich, creamy century egg sauce—the star of the meal—and the seasonal grilled sea bream. The fish is very fresh and grilled to a perfect crisp on the outside, moist and flaky inside. For high-end surf and turf, have the generous sevencourse wagyu and lobster set. The lobster and wagyu are served in separate hearty portions, cooked delectably and dripping with juices, and the stir-fried mushrooms and seafood fried rice are nicely done with intense flavours and perfect textures. *Good to note They seem to have interesting wine and sake promotions from time to time. Be sure to check in with your server on it. Asia Square Tower 2, #02-16, 12 Marina View, Singapore 018961 Tel: 6844 9855
