HY California, in short for Hide Yamamoto California, is a more casual dining option than the Hide Yamamoto at level two of Marina Bay Sands Shoppes. Located next to The Art Science Museum and on the street level, the restaurant overlooks the CBD night landscape. The beautiful lightings from Fullerton Hotel and the skyscrapers are breath-taking. No wonder Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One's Commerical Rights Holder, heralded Singapore's Grand Prix as "new Jewel of the Forumla One sports crown".
I was recently introduced to a casual outdoor dining place at Marina Bay Sands. HY California is located on the street level of Marina Bay Shoppes. The restaurant offers California cuisine with a blend of Singapore taste.
In total, we spent about SGD170 for two persons.
On its right was the marinated fish. The fish was freshly prepared. It was tender and moist. (Food Rating: 3/5)
2nd row on left was the nigiri sushi. Again, the ingredients - the prawn and sashimi were fresh. It was delicious. (Food Rating: 3/5)
The sirloin steak was the most memorable of the entire bento box. The steak was perfectly cooked. The meat was tender and juicy. I was totally hooked to the steak and could not stop eating them. (Food Rating: 4/5)
Third row on left was the California Roll. The fragrant rice was delicious. It could be eaten on its own. The California Roll was great! The generous crab roe, avocado and other ingredients were superbly delicious! Yummy! (Food Rating: 3/5)
Assorted Tempura was freshly prepared. The tempura were drained from oil. And the dish was delightful. (Food Rating: 3/5)
