We passed by Hide Yamamoto when we went to Imperial Treasures and checked out their menu. I hadn't had any Japanese food in Singapore yet and was craving for some. On the last day before I flew back to Vancouver, we decided to check out Hide Yamamoto for lunch. Yes - I have lots of cravings when I come back to Singapore and have to cram as much food as possible in. 6 weeks just isn't enough time to eat everything on my list.
Hide Yamamoto has different concepts in the restaurant, a sushi counter, a teppanyaki counter and a few private rooms which are great for entertaining. It looked rather small on the outside but once you walk in, it is quite a large area. Anyways, it wasn't very crowded and we got a quiet corner - perfect. After looking at their menu, we decided to try their set lunches.
The grilled mackerel was super fresh and it was a good sized portion. It's not easy to cook fish just so. The mackerel was nicely grilled, crisp skin and tender flesh. A touch of lemon and a bit of daikon - simple yet so tasty.

The beef was unexpectedly tender and very flavourful. It was almost buttery and melted in your mouth. The rich main was well matched with the light dessert of sorbet - such a refreshing way to end the meal.

The sushi set was very fresh and I enjoyed it very much. The chocolate ice-cream, whipped cream and mouse topped with crunchy chocolate balls and delicate wafer and jelly on the bottom - yum, a perfect end to the meal.
