Hide Yamamoto @ Marina Bay Sands, Singapore (Rating: 4/5)

After six months after my last visit, I came back for another delicious and memorable dining experience at Hide Yamamoto. Many restaurants come and go but I believe that Hide Yamamoto is here to stay. 

Opened by the renowned chef himself, Chef Yamamoto is the man behind his namesake - Hide Yamamoto. He had served three generations of US Presidents: Reagan, Bush and Clinton. He has a chain of restaurants under his belt. The fine-dining restaurant - Hide Yamamoto offers five concepts, Sushi, Teppanyaki, Robata, Ramen & Dining and Sake Bar.

Apart from my favourite dishes like Seasonal Vegetables with Italian Truffle Aroma, Whole Young Chicken stuffed with Truffle Rice, Butter and Soy Flavour, and Black Truffle Flan with Fresh Sea Urchin Chawan Mushi, we ordered new dishes to try. 

My total dining experience is SGD333.58. I think this is a worth while dining experience. 

The Wagyu Beef Clay Pot Rice with Ginger and Arima Sansho has become one of my favourite dishes at Hide Yamamoto. The rice was served in a small hot pot, just enough for two persons. The server helped to stir the rice and served us. The claypot rice rice was extremely fragrant. When the rice cooled,  the rice was more delicious. The wagyu beef was not only tender but also fragrant. The rice was granular, the way I love it. I enjoyed myself immensely and could eat it on its own. (Food Rating: 4.5/5)

Wonder what is "Ochazuke" style? It is a simple Japanese dish made by pouring either green tea, dashi or hot water. I ordered the Grilled Sword Fish "OCHAZUKE" Style, Flavoured with Roasted Sesame but I felt that it was quite a disappointment. The fish was a little fishy taste which I did not enjoy very much, even though the ginger is supposed to remove the fishy taste. (Food rating: 2/5)

Grilled Duck Breast and Foie Gras with Red Wine Miso Sauce is a must try. Normally, I do not really like to eat duck meat because of its bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly, I could not taste any bitter aftertaste at all. More importantly, the meat did not even taste like duck. It was absolutely yummy. The red wine miso sauce was a great complement. Though the sauce was complementary, I think that you can eat the meat on its own. The foie gras, on the other hand, was a little inferior. (Food rating: 4/5)

Black Truffle Flan with Fresh Sea Urchin Chawan Mushi is one of my favourites. Oops! I stirred the egg, forgetting to take a photo. As usual, we mixed the egg, truffle and urchin from top to bottom. The truffle aroma was still soothing and relaxing. The fragrant aroma woke my palette. The urchin blended so well with egg very well. (Food rating: 4/5)

We also ordered our favourites. You may find that we might have ordered too much food. When you are eating mouthwatering food at Hide Yamamoto, you just cannot stop eating. Truthfully, we finished every bit of the dishes we ordered. 

At Hide Yamamoto, it was definitely a place and experience worth going for. You may also read the other posts of Hide Yamamoto.

Whole Young Chicken stuffed with Truffle Rice, Butter and Soy Flavour was still the climax of the entire gastronomical experience. We ordered the dish immediately after we were ushered to our table. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

Seasonal Vegetables with Italian Truffle Aroma was still delicious. The seasonal vegetables used petrified wood grill to cook the vegetables. The only disappointment was that the seasonal vegetables that day were the ones I do not normally eat like egg plant and white radish. However, I still enjoyed the vegetables as it was still delicious and aromatic. (Food rating: 4/5)

Skewered Chicken with Lemongrass and Red Chilli and Ginger Sauce was very tender and juicy. The chicken meat was extremely delicious that it was hard to put it into words. I loved the charred corners most as it made the chicken meat even more delicious. (Food rating: 4/5)

Foie Gras Marinated with Saikyo Miso Hint of Yuzu was still delicious. The goose liver was perfectly cooked and it was tender. When it was placed into my mouth, the aromatic foie gras dispersed into my mouth. Even though I do not really like eating livers, this dish is surprisingly something I enjoy. (Food rating: 4/5)
