Aoki, Singapore

If you spot me eating lunch here, then I must be eating with none other than the Ladies of Singapore. In my past life, I was a jeweler to the richest of the richest. Still staying in touch with my clienteles that turned friends over the years. Set lunch here at Aoki restaurant, sets you around 100 bucks including service charge and GST. Once in a while, whenever we catch up, we likely to end up here for freshest bed of sushi rice.

Expect prompt service from the one and only Les Amis Group, crisp hand towel and amuse bouche right up before you even start your meal. Its been a while since I set foot here, it was great reunited with all my HNW friends again. Every time we eat here, we go for Mazechirashi don. Its sushi rice topped with mixed Sashimi & pickles served with an amuse bouche, simple salads, miso soup and desserts. The meal is high quality products air flown all the way from Japan. I was craving for good Japanese sushi for months ever since I was away living in the Caucasus for good 6 months. The wagyu don with onsen egg is also yummy!

This 36-seater restaurant offers the ultimate fine dining experience in Japanese haute cuisine. Aoki reopened in June 2017 with a brand new look by Japanese interior designer, Yasuhiro Koichi. The pristine interior features panels of Kumiko Zaiku, an intricate traditional Japanese woodwork as well as geometric patterned doors and wall panels, embodying the essence of Zen minimalism.Owner Chef Kunio Aoki presides over the sushi bar and kitchen. His culinary style is traditional, yet with modern undertones that keep his creations refreshingly contemporary. Unstinting in his demands to serve only the best produce sourced directly from Toyosu Market and other artisanal suppliers from all over Japan, he has garnered a loyal following over the years.

AP Tips: Reserve a table to avoid disappointment and I only recommend lunch as its value for money compare to their dinner menu and plenty of partitioned table for intimate gathering privacy. Bring your own gold leaves to add a little sparkle to your posh bento lunch!
