Mandarin Oriental Singapore, 5 Raffles Avenue, S(039797) TEL: 6885 3595 Choose the kaiseki menu, which presents you with a seasonal appetiser, California roll, sushi and sashimi, and a protein of your choice. For the latter, go for the Japanese wagyu beef, which the chef grills and flambés in front of diners. The steak, cooked medium-rare, is tender and juicy, and best eaten with grilled garlic and a sprinkle of sea salt. Good additions include the Kumi No. 1, a huge mouthful of crabmeat flakes, avocado slices and white fish topped with cream sauce.
