10th October 2013.
I was at Tiong Bahru a couple of times in the past few weeks getting my kueh posters up at Books Actually, a local independent bookstore supporting and promoting local literature.
There are a couple of choices for the appetizer, I had the Wagyu Tsukune which is grilled wagyu patty on skewers and it was quite delicious. The minced meat was consistent and the wagyu tasted great with the slightly smoky flavour from the grill.
Finally, a simple but rich scoop of matcha ice cream and a cup of tea/ coffee rounds up the meal nicely. Portions were just right and the service was great. Despite its contemporary interiors, the food here like what the restaurant described : its Japanese food prepared with heart and sincerity and most importantly uncomplicated food. I look forward to coming back to Ikyu again.
