Frequent customers of Suntec City would have realised or even been to Eat at Seven, located at Suntec City's sky garden!
Admittedly, I think Suntec City is getting a bit too complicated for me. Hahaha! I lost my way all the time.. T.T
Ok, back to topic, of the many new food concepts at Suntec City, Eat at Seven is one that I will really recommend.
The name itself says all!
Eat at Seven will house 7 different dining concepts from Japan! They are not just any Japanese restaurants, they are one of the best in the country. Currently, only 4 of the tenants have started operations, but I heard that the remaining 3 are opening very soon as well!
While we wait for the final 3 to arrive in Singapore, we shall get our mouths busy with the current 4 first. :D
1. NikuNoHi - For premium meats
The flagship store is in Tokyo and this is the first and only overseas branch! FYI, the average queue time to get into the restaurant is 30 minutes yo~
At NikuNoHi you can find yourself great selection of authentic roast beef and premium meats! Ps: They are specialist in wagyu beef and yakiniku!
Basically, a heaven for the carnivores. :)
Because CNY is coming our way, even at a Japanese restaurant, you can find Lo Hei! Haha!
But of course, Lo Hei in NikuNoHi's way! A prosperity Wagyu Lo Hei ($38 for small, $68 for large).
This is using A4 grade wagyu beef! This is not my first time eating beef sashimi but I still have more reservation. Fortunately, the beef was exactly really good! No bad smell or taste. We enjoyed every bites and wanted more in fact! :P
Because NikuNoHi will be open throughout the CNY period, they have launched a special CNY set menu!
A meat platter which comprises 3 types of wagyu beef, pork belly and chicken thigh
A seafood fortune pot which comprises a medley of fresh fish fillet, clams, scallops, prawns, squids, mussels and vegetables!
The 3 types of wagyu beef! <3
It was so so so good!
The seafood used in the seafood hotpot were really fresh as well! Just that comparing to wagyu beef, I rather have the latter. Heh. :P
Anyway, this whole set, meat platter and seafood pot, will cost $128++ for 2 pax or $238 for 4 pax! ^^

2. Enbu - traditional art of Warayaki
What is warayaki?
If you're wondering, it is a very traditional method of cooking using straw to roast the food.
Also, at Enbu, they take pride in their food presentation, very seriously.
Look what I mean?
This is one Lo Hei that is out to impress!
Enbu's Mede Tai Lo Hei, $48 for 4-5 pax.
Btw, Tai or sea bream used here represents good luck! Very appropriate for the New Year! ^^
You can choose either yuzu or the usual sweet plum sauce as dressing for your lo hei. I'll really encourage you to go for yuzu instead! After so many rounds of lo hei with sweet plum sauce, it's time for a change!
We had it with the yuzu sauce and it was awesome! Nothing like the usual lo hei that we have tried. For that, this is now my favourite lo hei thus far. ^^
Besides the must-try Lo Hei, when you're here at Enbu, you got to try their Sashimi Morawase, $60 for 2.
It's such a beauty on its own!
The platter features different cuts of tuna (otoro was so good! melted in my mouth! :D) and sea urchin! This platter is still by far, the freshest sashimi platter I've tried in Singapore.
Chicken Warayaki with Spring Onion Sauce, $12.
Roasted with the straw roasted cooking style that I've mentioned earlier on, it had a nice, smoky taste!
Another dish that I will recommend when you're here! :D
Taco salad, $15.
Yes, you saw it right! Taco in a Japanese restaurant. Though the taco skin is more like a larger piece of wonton skin.
Within the taco you can find yourself healthy vege and fruits! But the thing that got one was the spicy meat sauce that was poured over. I wish I could bring home that meat sauce! :D
Who cares if the taco salad is a little out of place in a Jap restaurant? As long as it tastes good! ^^

3. Nigiro Cafe - Japanese Italian fusion cuisine
Another Japanese and western fusion eatery! I've not tried the food here, so I can't say much.
We were here for their special Lo Hei instead. Nigiro Cafe's special healthy rendition is a fruity delight! With lots of fruits like dried papaya, fid, apricot, pomelo, orange and lemon skin! There are fresh ones as well, like strawberry, kiwi, rock melon and mandarin oranges! Of course, not forgetting the usual shredded vegetables in the Lo Hei. For vegetarian version, you can choose not to have the sashimi added. :)
$48 for non vegetarian version, $36 for vegetarian version.
A good change for one who is looking for a 'healthier choice' lo hei! ^^

4. Maguro-Donya Miura-Misaki-Kou Sushi & Dining
Omg. The name is such a mouthful! :P
Likewise to Nigiro Cafe, I've yet to try their mains!
This is their special Lo Hei set for this CNY.
For $88.80, it's on the pricey side. But not without reason.
You can find yourself fresh salmon, salmon roe and flying fish roe!
A little different from the usual Lo Hei as well because the marquee ingredient is the maguro!
Also, it doesn't use the usual shredded vegetables for tossing, more Japanese factors are incorporated here.
It was a nice change and we enjoyed this Lo Hei as well! ^^
So after looking through all the 4 different Lo Hei at Eat at Seven, have you found yourself the right one? :D
Thank you Eat at Seven for hosting us. :)
