Seki Japanese Restaurant @ Rendezvous Hotel

Seki Japanese Restaurant, located at Rendezvous Hotel is a mid-priced japanese restaurant, specialising in fresh sushi and sashimi.

Most of their seafood served are brought in from Japan’s Hokkaido and Chiba region twice a week for freshness. Hence the pricing is considered pretty reasonable for quality.

I was invited for a tasting session sometime back. A special omakase menu was served for us to sample a range of their dishes:

Fugu Mirin Boshi (S$12)

Fugu mirin boshi refers to dried puffer fish. It tastes chewy like a thin strip of bak kwa (Chinese barbecue pork) and is served at Seki with a mayonnaise dip topped with Japanese chilli powder.

Seki Kamo Salad (S$8)

This cabbage salad is served with black pepper smoked duck and topped with thin strips of deep fried spring roll skin, sesame seed and homemade dressing.

I like the mix of crunch and softness in the salad ingredient.

3-Kind Sashimi Moriawase (S$42)

At Seki, their sashimi is served with the freshest ingredients, imported directly from the Japanese mecca of seafood, Tsukiji Market, Tokyo, on every Tuesday and Thursday.

Lovely!

This is the main course – charcoal-grilled beef in black pepper and salt, served with a special mayonnaise mustard sauce for dipping.

Cheese Chawanmushi (S$7)

The cheese is not overbearing in this dish and adds a nice nutty fragrance to the smooth egg custard. I quite like this.

Sushi Moriawase and California Roll (S$35)

Overall, Seki gives pretty good value-for-money. It is not exactly the cheapest japanese restaurant around, but for the quality of the seafood, it is pretty reasonable.
