B and I visited Fukuichi Japanese Dining to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2013. It was kind of impromptu cause we walked past it and the boyfriend said he remembered reading some good reviews on this restaurant, thus we decided to give it a try.
Fukuichi is tucked in a quiet corner of Orchard (so quiet I didn’t know this building existed!) but this Japanese restaurant is definitely going to be worth your time.
Here’s some dishes we tried :)
Kani Tofu (stuffed cold tofu with crab meat covered in century egg sauce)
Done to perfection. I love that the century egg sauce was not too overpowering and you can really taste the freshness of that tofu with crab meat. It just simply dissolves in the mouth! OH-YI-SHI NEH~
Hiyashi Gyomen – fish infused cold noodles served with soba sauce & seaweed
This dish looks and taste pretty unique and I stole quite a bit of this from the boyf. The noodles were bouncy and chewy, really good for those who have a liking for light and tasty stuffs.
The salmon sashimi was so fresh! Very very different standards from normal sushi joints like Sushi Tei (let’s not even mention sakae sushi) I read their wall-history and somehow the freshness of their sashimi has to do with them being connected directly with the fish suppliers in Japan. No fishy smell at all, hence I didn’t need wasabi or soy sauce :)
And here’s our couple wear for that day. No flowers, no gifts, no special outfits.
Just a treat from the boyfriend to a good meal for both of us. I love this idea. Let’s do this every year :)
The meal cost us about S$90++ but there was a discount so it added up to just $80+ for 2. Can’t wait to visit again soon!
