Sushi Kimura

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Japanese -

Af­ter help­ing es­tab­lish Ja­panese restau­rants in Sin­ga­pore, the friendly chef To­moo Kimura has opened his epony­mous restau­rant at Palais Re­nais­sance. He serves Edo­mae (Tokyo-style) sushi in an omakase menu that show­cases Ja­pan’s best of­fer­ings. A meal typ­i­cally be­gins with ap­pe­tis­ers—in this case, fresh tofu skin with dashi jelly, ikura and uni; and ten­der chawan­mushi made with Hokkaido wa­ter, mush­rooms and snow crab. Af­ter these comes the sushi, which is where Kimura truly shines. He pre­pares it right in front of din­ers (com­plete with his funny anec­dotes) in var­i­ous ways, such as mar­i­nat­ing the akami in a spe­cial soya-yuzu sauce, or by lightly sear­ing the top of the otoro with coals. A pa­rade of dishes fol­lows, in­clud­ing the truly com­fort­ing miso soup with prawn’s head—be­fore the meal ends with sea­sonal fruits. A range of sake dom­i­nates the bev­er­age list, served in minia­ture tin cups for a smoother taste.
