Eat at Seven at level 3 of Suntec City Mall features 7 of Japan’s best and trending specialist concept restaurants are brought into Singapore by Global Retail Partners, a joint venture by ANA Trading, Komars Group and local restaurateur Mr Andrew Tan who owns Tomo F&B Group.
Japanese cuisine is one of my favourite cuisines, so I am going to dedicate the whole of December to the review of these 7 restaurants.
Today, we are going to try out the restaurant with the longest queue, Tempura Kohaku, which sells tempura bowls.
The menu is only one-page long, available in both English and Japanese. There are tendon and tendon sets, soft drinks and alcohol.
Green Tea is the best drink to have with tempura. Green tea not only cleanses your palate, it helps to wash away the oil from the tempura.
Kohaku specializes in the edomae tendon where Hokkaido rice is piled with tempura and drizzled with speciality sauce and this is their signature Kohaku Tendon. It comes with an additional small bowl to put shells or pieces of tempura so that you can get to the rice at the bottom. There are about 7 pieces of tempura of pumpkin, long beans, mushroom, chicken breast, baby corn, crab stick and shrimp. It is extremely filling and the special blend of high-grade sesame oil and cooking oil makes the tempura a satisfying crunch.
A new outlet is opening at Boat Quay, do drop by to try out the tempura bowls when you are in the area.
The prices are reasonable and the tempura ingredients are fresh, Kohaku is a good restaurant to have a quick and delicious tendon meal any time of the day.
