Kyoaji Dining 京味 At TripleOne Somerset – Orchard, Singapore

One by one, the units at TripleOne Somerset are filled with mainly F&B at the retail floors (first and second) with Glyph Supply Co, Qoolco. Kyoaji Dining is the sole Japanese restaurant on level 2 of the mall currently. I googled them just before writing this post and noticed that they were previously at Centrepoint. Why didn’t I know about them earlier!

This quaint Japanese restaurant is helmed by Executive Chef John Phua who has almost 30 years of experience in Authentic Japanese cuisine. Almost devoting his entire career life on Japanese food.

Interior consists of Japanese motif and art pieces to create the Japanese and zen ambience.

From Kyoaji Dining Menu

Kicked start our lunch with the ultra impressive Hirame Truffle ($48). Extremely fresh olive flounder coupled with truffle and special sauce created by the chef was excellent. I could devour the entire serving by myself.

Silky Kinoko Tofu ($10) is a homemade tofu that melt in the mouth with assorted mushroom. Even though I like neither tofu nor mushroom, I enjoyed this dish.

Gyuniku Kimo Yaki ($30) is yet another must order dish, especially for the foie gras fan. If they could use a more premium beef cut, it would be better.

Asari Mentaiko Yaki ($18) was a little disappointing. I have 2 clams, one of which has a pleasant sweetness of the sea, however, the other has a pungent unpleasant seafood scent.

Tokujyo Sushi $68 consists of a platter of superior choice of sashimi on the sushi rice. I highly recommend this item.

If you are looking for maki to share and if you love beef, go for the Gyuniku Aburi Maki ($30). The entire combination, especially with the sauce enhance the flavour of the maki.

Personal favourite is the Shake Mentaiko Aburi Maki ($25). I am a sucker for aburi and mentaiko, hence this is a perfect item for me.

NAHMJ Verdict

Kyoaji Dining serves quality Japanese dishes using the finest and freshest ingredients. I love the location since it is away from the hustling activities of Orchard Road but yet still convenient to get to.
