Hashida Sushi

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Japanese -

It’s been four years since chef-owner Ken­jiro “Hatch” Hashida set up Hashida Sushi in Sin­ga­pore—and it re­mains one of our top places for an au­then­tic sushi ex­pe­ri­ence. He and his skilled chefs take din­ers on a gas­tro­nomic jour­ney through an omakase menu that high­lights Ja­pan’s sea­sonal pro­duce (such as the sweet ayu fish) and in­gre­di­ents, pre­sented along­side sig­na­tures like the ut­terly ten­der ankimo (or fish foie gras) that lit­er­ally melts in the mouth with one bite, and the otoro ni­giri with its clean, del­i­cate flavours. Half­way through the meal, the chef presents one big piece of tuna, which he ex­pertly carves into thin sliv­ers in front of you, served with soy sauce and freshly grated wasabi. It’s not only the stel­lar meal that makes the trip mem­o­rable; the staff take the Ja­panese art of omote­nashi to heart by treat­ing ev­ery­one like VIP guests—from the warm and friendly wel­come upon ar­rival to the reg­u­lar top-up of your sake or tea and the metic­u­lous way they present each dish.
