Food Scoops: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants In May 2023
Miyoshi By Fat Cow
A concept by Fat Cow, Miyoshi means 三好 in kanji, meaning ‘three graces’ which showcases three types of Japanese dining experiences – ramen, teppanyaki and omakase. Located in a beautiful colonial style conservation building in Sentosa at the Mess Hall section beside The Outpost Hotel, you can choose how you wish to dine at Miyoshi where I tried the Teppan-Kaiseki menu. The highlight of the Teppan-Kaiseki Lunch Menu (S$98++) is live lobster, while the Dinner Teppan-Kaiseki (S$280++ and additional S$78++ for a 4-glass sake pairing) is an exquisite 11-course experience. Set lunches (from S$32++ to S$168++) are also available from Wednesday to Sunday which is mostly curated from the a-la-carte, served with selected sides including braised burdock, chawanmushi, miso soup and dessert.
