Dr Leslie Tay (ieatishootipost) posted about this new joint that just opened at Amoy Hotel, named Jin Fine Dining. Apparently they served a mean bara-chirashi for only SGD18 and use top quality fish. As I'm a great fan of good chirashi-don, I jumped at the opportunity to try this.
I popped down on a Tuesday night to Amoy Hotel located at Far East Square - the restaurant actually occupies the atrium of the building, which is - nice - since you get good air-conditioning and the benefit of the hotel decor.
Chef Thomas was formerly from Hokkaido Sushi Restaurant - and I had a little chat with him, as I always do when I visit new places.
I ordered the chirashi set - and it was pretty good. What particularly impressed me was the rice: that was the most delicious and flavourful sushi rice I've eaten for a long time (in Singapore) - was perhaps on par with the rice from Tatsuya. It was so delicious, flavoured with lots of fish, vinegar, etc. As for the fish, they were undoubtedly fresh; however - the tuna was Indonesian tuna instead of hon-maguro so the flavour was far less delicious and rather chewy, in fact. This was about a (7.75/10). I will come back when they have more fish and maybe I'll "update" the ranking.
The SGD80.00 omakase set (ieat set) also seems like a good deal, come to think of it.
