Wahiro A La Carte

Beef shimeji
I could not depart without sampling some kushiyaki, which Wahiro does very well. Beef shimeji (S$5.80), simply delicious.

Butabara (pork belly) and kawa (chicken skin)
Pork belly (butabara, S$2.80) tastes so good grilled like this. Chicken skin (kawa, S$1.80) too. Grilled crisp and miraculously not greasy.

Nankotsu (grilled chicken gristle or cartilage) and scallop bacon kushiyaki
I've been called crazy for liking nankotsu or grilled chicken cartilage (S$2.50), but hey, clearly the Japanese thought it desirable as a regular kushiyaki item. Grilled very nicely here and still a little moist with bits of meat on the soft bone. I daresay these were better than the ones I had at Nanbantei in Tokyo. The scallop bacon was pleasant but may not be worth the price (S$9.80).

Luscious, beautiful, and thick slabs of salmon
Salmon sashimi (S$12). Glorious colour. That coveted firm yet almost creamy texture. Sweetness that you savour in silent reverence.

Testament to the chef's skill in filleting fish
The fish bones strung up say a lot about the chef's skills too. Look at how clean they are. Could not help admiring these.

  5. Wahiro remains one of my favourite sushi restaurants. Best value for money! Also, their 'flavoured' sushi (yuzu, sakura, katzuo...) is an interesting twist.
