My current favourite Japanese restaurant in Singapore is Wasabi Tei. Located on Level 5 in Far East Plaza, it is a hole in the wall that sits only 16. It is my weekly ritual and I always find an excuse to eat here. There is always a queue. When my sister first went at 5.30pm (opening time,) there were already 12 people waiting in line. The second time round, I missed the first rotation and ended up waiting for 1 hour 15 mins. Another unusual aspect about this place is that everything has to be ordered at once or get charged an extra 20%. Some may find this stressful and unnecessary but I love the food too much to bother. For one thing, the chef is so incredibly generous with the sashimi. It is thickly-sliced, large and fresh. Plus the most affordable place ever.
The best Unagi I ever had in my life. It was thick, chewy, juicy and fat. Massive satisfaction achieved.
Salmon sashimi. It makes my heart go soft just looking at the picture. S$9 for 6 slices.
Oyaku Don. Unlike most places, they dont serve Tonkatsu Don. The chicken is healthier, boiled I guess. But I assure you it is superior in taste.
Steamed Egg. It is hard to find the egg in here. Generous amounts of mushrooms, prawn, chicken and crabmeat. I make it a point to order this every single time.
Mixed sushi set. Extremely fresh sashimi (no surprises there), a wide assortment of seafood present.
Fish head claypot. Healthy and so incredibly generous with the cabbage.
Sashimi. Perfect everytime.
