Nagomi Japanese Restaurant @ Cuppage Plaza
Nagomi is located in the ever crowded (and some may think sleazy) Cuppage Plaza. But it can be a bit difficult to locate it as it is quite discreet, hiding in one corner of the building.
Basically, all diners come here for their set dinner. The chef decides what will be the dishes for the day based on what is available and what is in season. Our first dish was this super sweet Japanese tomatoes served with a pinch of sea salt. These are some of the best Japanese tomatoes I have ever tried in Singapore.
The basic price for all diners is S$130++ per person. And for those who have difficulty finding the place, this is a shot of their front door.
We were served some yummy and unique squid appetizers
Sushi platter. Especially nice is the top grade uni, wrapped in seaweed sheet. Heavenly. Everything is so fresh and sweet.
Next up is this baked Egg plant. We were told that the egg plant season is ending soon. Fantastic texture. Topped with sweet miso and baked
Roasted Belt fish. Crispy skin and smooth fish meat.

目光魚 Mehikari fish from deep sea. Again, the fish was especially sweet. Deep fried till crispy.
Pan seared wagyu beef, wrapped with vegetable. Beef was tender and very flavourful.
Ended our delicious Japanese dinner with a pipping hot serving of the Chicken porridge. Comforting.
Sweet and big Muscat grapes from Okayama.
Reservation is a must. Highly Recommended.
