Sage (CLOSED)

Sage (CLOSED)

Update: As of December 2010, this restaurant has already ceased operations.

Although I have not been to Sage since my last visit more than a year ago, memories of good food and wonderful service still linger in my mind. And it clearly did not disappoint. Had this post been done in 2009, this would and could have been the Meal of the Year 2009.

We have the 4-course Executive Set Lunch. The lunch menu consists of 1 appetizer, 1 soup, 1 main course and 1 dessert. The lunch cost S$45.00++ per person, while a 3-course option costs S$38.00++ per person. From what I understand, the menu changes a little very so often.

La Noce

La Noce

My first and (up till now) last time I had patronized La Noce was a year ago at their Chu Lin Road outlet.

It was Christmas eve and we were looking for a place to have lunch. Our usual Italian restaurants were, naturally, fully booked and thus we decided to try La Noce’s latest outlet at Valley Point.

As I stepped into the restaurant, an air of dejavu came over me. Much of the layout remained from the La Forketta, the previous tenant. The simplistic decor of the restaurant was somewhat reminiscent of La Noce’s previous outlet.

Sushi Yoshida (CLOSED)

Sushi Yoshida (CLOSED)

Sunday lunch brought my dad and myself to Sushi Yoshida. Sushi Yoshida is tucked away in a small corner of Devonshire Road (off Killiney Road). Had it not been for the heads up regarding its obscure location on Michelle’s blog, we would have most definitely drove past it.

Like many of the other fine Japanese restaurants, including Tatsuya and Nogawa, the very thought of dining at Sushi Yoshida would have been unfathomable had it not been for their affordable set lunch sets. (Less than S$40)

I chose their Sushi Moriwase set (S$38 nett). I am by no accounts, a sushi expert and thus am unable to accurately identify all the fishes that came with the set. Having said that, I can identify – salmon roe, tuna, ebi and lastly, tamagoyaki. The fish was, as you would have come to expect from an establishment like this, extremely fresh. However, I was somewhat disappointed by the rice. It seemed a little dry for my liking and the rice seemed to disintegrate once I lifted them. Speaking of tamogo, fans of Japanese cuisine would understand, when I say, tamagoyaki’s (Sweet rolled egg) the ultimate test of a sushi chef’s skill. Sushi Yoshida’s version tasted a little too dry & stiff.

My dad ordered their Grilled Seasonal Fish. (S$38 nett). You do have a choice of having the fish grilled in Teriyaki or just Sea Salt. My dad chose the former. The seasonal fish turned out to be a large piece of gindara, Cod Fish. It took a while to arrive – possibly due to the slow grilling process. His comments on this dish were “well executed” and “one of the best”. I shall leave that to your own imagination and taste buds if you every do try it.

Both of us had chosen a clear soup instead of the Miso soup. The clear fish broth was a pretty refreshing way to end off the meal. It didn’t taste the least fishy – due to the large amounts of ginger used.
