Mikuni Revisited @ Fairmont Hotel

12:00 PM , 0 Comments


I love heading to Mikuni for lunch, especially if there is a seat by the Robata counter.


Pampered with a view like that, I am so spoilt.


Kagoshima beef, to die for kind of delicious.


Small gestures like these remind me of Japan.


Japanese Chawanmushi Egg Custard

I can never say no to chawanmushi this silken smooth, packed with gingko nuts and crabmeat. Slurpworthy much, seconds please!


Organic Mixed Green Salad with Sesame Sauce

The same salad that gets served everytime I dine there - loves the crunchy bits with the roasted sesame doused salad.


Hokkaido Scallop with Onion Butter

Onion and butter has to be the most ingenious combinations ever, the sweet and savoury marriage is beyond oral comprehension.


Atka Mackerel from Kyushu and Green Asparagus

Grilled to perfection, the charred mackerel was a joy to eat.


Kurobuta Pork Tsukune with Egg

The only time I'd ever eat an egg raw is in a dish like this - creamy yolky blend with the pork tsukune studded with cartilage.


Kagoshima Wagyu Beef with Garlic Soya

Joy to the senses and tongue every single encounter I have with kagoshima beef.


Kyoto-style Herring Fish Soba

Japanese noodles, especially soba served warm is always a comforting eat to indulge in, without any of the overladen MSG. I slurped down to the very last drop.


These are not the smoothest noodles around but so delicious! I just did not enjoy the bony herring that much.


Daily Seasonal Dessert


Mikuni ought to have this on their permanent menu - panna cotta with a slew of berries. The best of its kind eaten.

I've eaten this menu twice and still so good! Somehow I think this is way more worth while than their other bento sets.
