Even if we've already dined here on more than several occassions, I'd still eat here than dine at the Japanese-inspired restos inside the malls. I recommended this restaurant to the first gathering of Astro Foodies. Also, the food here is not that expensive and is authentic Japanese. In fact, if I remember correctly, this resto is owned by a Japanese guy and his Filipina wife.
Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien, whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.
