In the recently released 2012 edition of “The World‟s 50 Best Restaurants” list, Waku Ghin was placed at 39th – even higher than Chef Tetsuya’s other restaurant in Sydney, Tetsuya (76th).

Dinner at Waku Ghin currently goes for S$400++ upwards for a 10-course degustation menu. Signature items include Marinated Botan Shrimp with Sea Urchin and Caviar and the Australian Wagyu with Wasabi and Citrus Soy.

A less expensive option would be to try the recently launched six-course degustation lunch available only on Fridays which is priced at S$250++ per person (available from 12:00pm – 2:00pm).

    Can totally understand why this was on Pellegrino’s list, this is possibly the only “celebrity chef restaurant” that has consistently garnered praises from its diners, unlike most of the others that have been so underwhelming and overhyped.

    woah @@! So expppppp!! but I guess you pay for what you get isn’t it! The same chef operates tetsuya’s right?

    Simple and nice. However: Too little salt is added the pasta water (they will taste bland with only a pinch of salt.). A taplesboon would seem right.As for sugar, it is not true that Italian chefs don’t add sugar to their sugo al pomodoro; I know many Italian chefs who do it all the time. As others have stated: it all depends on the sweetness/acidity of the tomatos.
