Nobu Restaurant (Hong Kong)

Nobu Restaurant (Hong Kong)

I wanted to visit a Japanese restaurant while I was in Hong Kong. Flipping through the Tatler dining guide showed a recommendation to NOBU. I was practically staying within a 10 minute radius of Hotel Inter-Continental, I thought, why not give NOBU a try?

A partnership between Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Hollywood actor Robert DeNiro, NOBU is synonymous with innovative new-style Japanese cuisine. Opened in 2006, NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong was Nobu’s first restaurant in Asia (ex Japan) and is among 21 NOBU and 4 Matsuhisa restaurants currently in operation around the world.

For the inquisitive, Chef Nobu Matushisa’s profile can be found on Wikipedia.

Saint Pierre

Saint Pierre

I loved my previous visit to Saint Pierre so much that I just had to have my French fix again the following week. So this was, essentially, two consecutive visits in just two weeks.

As mentioned before, Saint Pierre has a relatively affordable set lunch menu that ranges from S$28++ to S$48++ depending on the number of courses. Unlike other restaurants who just claim to change their menus frequently, Saint Pierre holds true to their word. With the exception of 3 mainstay dishes (The Foie Gras, Miso Cod and Grandma Stroobant’s Chocolate cake), the menu was revamped and had no similarities withe the menu on my previous visit.

The entry on my previous visit can be found here.

Singapore: Nogawa Restaurant, Concorde Hotel

Singapore: Nogawa Restaurant, Concorde Hotel

Nogawa at Concorde Hotel is my favourite Japanese restaurant and Chef Kevin is my go-to guy when the craving for sushi comes around.

I just love sitting at the counter interacting with the Itamae (Sushi Chef), Chef Kevin. You get to interact with the Chef, asking him questions and chatting about almost anything under the sun, akin to having your own personal chef. This is completely unlike dining at an French or Italian restaurant, where the Chef’s in the kitchen, hidden from view. (Open Kitchens aside.)

Now, sit back and relax while you join me for this little sushi adventure.
