KŌ Japanese Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel

Usually, Rachel and I would not have dined in a hotel restaurant due to the hefty price tag, but we went to try out Japanese Restaurant at Intercontinental Hotel as I had won some dining vouchers at a lucky draw. 🙂

The place was nearly empty when we reached, with only a couple of other diners. We appreciate the quiet and private ambient.

We ordered a set dinner each, with an additional two side dishes. The total bill came to around S$200, but was mostly covered by our vouchers. The service was great, food was wonderful – one of the best Japanese food we had in Singapore.

For our starters, the sashimi was really fresh and the hand-made tofu, silky soft. The elegant presentation probably added to the food’s appeal as well.

My teppanyaki Angus beef cubes were nice, but not memorable. Rachel’s grilled fish was fresh and juicy. The portion could have been more generous though.

As the servings were moderate, we ordered two more side dishes – barbecued puffer fish and fried squid to round up the meal. This was the first time both of us ate puffer fish. It didn’t taste remarkable lei, pretty much tasteless sans for the seasoning.

The desserts had nice presentation. Otherwise, they tasted quite normal, but were a nice finishing touch to an enjoyable meal.
