Akashi Japanese Restaurant Singapore
Akashi is a Japanese Restaurant located in the heart of Singapore, on Orchard Road, located within the Orchard Parade Hotel serving traditional Japanese cuisine. With a choice of sitting at the standard restaurants tables or at the sushi bar. They also have private functions rooms.
While the restaurant is self looks fantastic with great Japanese decor inside, my experience with the food at Akashi was just disappointing! There is a large dining area as well as a bench with dining over looking the sushi chefs which is where I sat.
I was a bit disappointed with the food at Akashi Japanese Restaurant. It seems all the staff, including the sushi chefs are Chinese which may explain the food not being the best Japanese.
I ordered the Tonkatsu set meal which I had read a good recommendation for on the internet. First it came with a side dish which I thought was deep fried chicken. When I bit into it it was in fact a fish head with lots of cartilage. Once I found the tiny morsel of fish meat that was tasty though too fiddly to eat with all the cartilage.
The Tonkatsu pork was a mix of disappointment as well as some tasty bits. The first piece I had was very tough, The second piece fatty and chewy, The next few pieces were perfect, tender, juicy and very tasty, then the last few pieces were back to tough and fatty.
I ordered a different side dish of minced chicken on a skewer. This also was disappointing, lots of chewy bits which I think was grisly
or bone, but I was unable to eat this. There are plenty of other great Japanese Restaurants in Singapore. This one is worth avoiding.
