Tsuta is launching its new Japanese concept – Tsuta Japanese Dining, the first in Singapore and the World at 313@Somerset. Apart from their eight signature ramen flavours, you can expect an extensive range of new items including makis, sushi cones, tempura, rice bowls, hamburg and okonomiyaki.
Introducing the star of the meal – the Sushi Cones, which are available in three flavours – Ikura Temaki (S$8), Negitoro Temaki (S$8) and Uni Temaki (S$18). Our favourite is the Uni Temaki, as it is air flown from Hokkaido and a fairly generous amount is served. The negitoro temaki on the other hand has a sweet brown sauce drizzled atop and a good treat to have too. We also love this Salmon Carpaccio (S$9.80), a good appetiser with thinly sliced salmon sashimi drizzled with Japanese lemon vinaigrette sauce topped with tomato flakes, dill and amaranthus. One of my favourite sharing dishes – Maki rolls – are also available on the menu. We tried two seafood flavours, a novel twist from the usual fare. The Salted Egg Roll (S$16.80) is a salmon sashimi and avocado roll, drizzled generously with their house-made salted egg yolk sauce and tobiko. The Avocado Ebi Roll (S$16.80) is one for the spicy lovers. Lined with slices of avocado and layered with their signature housemade sweet chilli mayo sauce, this roll packs a punch spice-wise. A steer away from the seafood is the wagyu beef roll (S$21.80) – our pick and recommendation. Prime wagyu beef from the US is used and topped with steak sauce, fried garlic chips, white sesame seeds and chives. This roll is a party in your mouth, rich in both flavours and textures. If you want a fuss-free meal, you can go for the Wagyu Beef Don (S$19.80) – a bowl version of the wagyu beef
