Sometimes, things happen for a reason and there’s just no explanation why it happens. Take for example, when I woke up on the wrong side of my bed that day, I decided that the only thing that I could do to make things right – was to have a Tonkatsu.
The question is obviously: which Japanese restaurant has the best tonkatsu in Singapore? I am in a rampage mood for tonkatsu. If there’s one thing that I cannot stand — it is settling for second best. Only the finest, the best tonkatsu will do for me. Having tried Tonkichi, Tetsu and Tampopo Japanese restaurant — I wanted somewhere new. That’s when I thought of Tonkatsu Ginza Bairin at Ion Orchard.
Confession of a non-Japanese food lover. Right, I admit. I’m not the biggest fan of Jap food, while others rave about the freshness of the sashimi, I stared at them and wondered why they like to eat raw seafood. When others sipped and finished their bowl of ramen, I’m quietly thinking of my wanton mee. But, I can’t stop myself eating Tonkatsu, whenever I enter a Japanese restaurant.
Welcome to LIC Food event II at Tetsu!
Having the experience of organising my own food outing event at OChaCha previously, this time LIC decided to have the second one at Tetsu. The response has been overwhelming, in fact i think its crazy given its a Tuesday night since people have to work and study. A whopping 51, yes 51 friends joined us for this one.
There will be more thoughts about the event in the next post, The Afterthoughts on Tetsu food event. For now, lets go back to LIC main task, food review!
Tetsu, opening its doors at Tanglin Mall on January 17, 2008, pride themselves in serving Kushi-Tempura and Kushi-Katsu. Their concept is based on a “LIVE” preparation in front of you by their chefs, who have intensive training in their Japanese Headquarters.
