Rakuichi (楽市) – April Lunch Special

It’s been a while since I’ve been here so I decided to drop in for lunch.

Entrance to the restaurant:

Couldn’t decide what to order until I saw this April Special (Tokubetsu Set) which was only available for lunch.

Standing by to “attack” the food when it arrives! LOL…


Sweet Corn Salad – This was a nice salad with a refreshing and slightly spicy vinaigrette dressing.


Assorted Semi-Grilled Sushi – I sat at the counter and saw the chef using a blow torch to cook this! The taste of the sushi was good and was paired well with the sauces but I felt the chef’s sushi making skills could be improved as there were 2 pieces where the sushi rice fell apart the moment I picked up the sushi with my chopsticks! Didn’t really like the second piece from top-left which was rather chewy. The bright green sauce on that piece of sushi, second from bottom-left, was actually a wasabi sauce!!


Seafood and Vegetable Clustered Tempura – The tempura tasted quite normal but I didn’t really see much seafood in it as it comprised mainly of vegetables and only about 2 or 3 mini pieces of scallop.


Grilled Skewer of the Day with Seaweed and Tofu Miso Soup – The soup was the typical miso soup done just right with enough seaweed and cubes of tofu to keep you happy. The skewers on the other hand comprised of 3 pieces of sweet potato on one skewer, the mid-joint of a chicken wing on the second skewer and pieces of salmon, onion and red/green capsicums on the third skewer which was dipped in teriyaki sauce. Don’t remember ever having yakitori for lunch before but this was nice.


Sesame Ice Cream – The black sesame ice cream was very fragrant and the flavour was extremely concentrated. This is definitely one of the better sesame ice creams which I’ve eaten!
