Since a trip to Japan might still be far from reality, why not take your senses on a gastronomical journey to the Land of the Rising Sun at Fukui—the new hospitality-driven omakase concept restaurant located at Mohamed Sultan Road

Helmed by sisters, Eugenia and Emilia Tan, alongside their veteran Head Chef Nick Pa’an of the now-defunct Santaro Japanese Restaurant, Fukui aims to present the storied culture and bounteous offerings of Japan to Singapore, within their modern interiors inspired by the comforts and tranquillity of a ryokan

Set within a 3,000sq. ft shophouse, the restaurant makes use of light and dark wood together with stylish natural elements to exude aesthetic echoing Japanese sensibilities of simplicity and serenity. Here, the alluring restaurant scene changes between day and night, offering diners a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Singapore’s city life.

With over 20 years of Japanese culinary experience under his belt, Head Chef Nick Pa’an promises a series of simple yet bold dishes showcasing different traditional cooking methods. 

Based on the use of seasonal ingredients, Fukui’s specially curated dining menus (Lunch: from S$88++ for six-courses, Dinner: from S$188++ for seven-courses) features a gastronomic journey through Japan’s seasonal best sourced from Tokyo’s Toyosu Market, Saga Prefecture and Hokkaido.

From the teasing of natural oils out of a kampachi (great amberjack) using a traditional warayaki (straw fire cooking) to the use of his two-year-old growing sea eel sauce that accentuates the flavour of the plump Hokkaido rice grains, expect to taste ingredient-driven creations that will change with the flow of the seasons every time you dine here at Fukui.

To complement your dining experience, why not pair your dishes with a evolving list of beverages including the likes of Japanese sake, wines and whiskies? Spirits from top breweries such as Dassai and Juyondaia aside, feel free to explore the products of some lesser-known breweries from the Fukui prefecture. Who knows, you might stumble upon a unexpected gem that will tickle your fancy.
