Han @ Odeon Towers
Located at Odeon Towers, Han is a high-end Japanese restaurant. And this restaurant specializes in one thing which is seldom found in Singapore - Kushikatsu, which is skewers of seafood, vegetable or meat coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried till crispy.
Started our dinner with Appetizer (S$15) : Grilled fish with vinegar, pickle with cheese, kohada sushi, black bean, octopus and daikon. They are all seasonal ingredients.
Ordered the Kushi Omakase (S$160 per person), plus so extras which I have indicated their ala carte prices. Sitting along the counter allows you to see the chef in action.
AS the menu put it, the dishes here have influences from Osaka (Japan), Korea and China. It's basically a fusion of East Asia tastes.
Ohmi beef 近江牛 carpaccio (S$55) - Really superb quality beef.
Had our fresh sashimi platter: Flounder, amberjack, salmon, tuna, pan shell (Sashimi Ikoma - S$45)
Now, we get ready for our freshly fried skewers. Here are the sauces for Kushikatsu
FIrst up are the Angel prawn and snow crab
Lotus root and scallop
Chef is preparing more Kushikatsu Sea eel & shellfish. We really like the taste of the kushikatsu, as who doesn't like fried food? And the best part is that it is not oily.
Look how beautiful this dish is: Red breams boiled in soya sauce (Kinmedai Nitsuke - S$25)
Grilled amberjack ( Kanpachi Shioyaki - S$25)
We were served so many skewers, that we lost count of what is what. But safe to say that everything was excellent.
Smelt fish, tomato with cream cheese and dried tomato paste
With so much fried food, it is best to order a soupy dish to balance it. Here we have the Yosenabe (S$35)
Ended our dinner with Black sesame ice Monaka (S$6)
and also the refreshing Yuzu sorbet
