Fukuharu @ Terrace Hock Choon

June 10, 2009

Fukuya's sister restaurant has become the pioneering outlet at Terrace @ Hock Choon.
For now, it's not as popular as Il Divo, the only other restaurant currently open at this location. Still, it's a serene, stately place with solid potential.

Don't expect a replica of Fukuya though. There are subtle similarities in the ambience, but Fukuharu's menu seems less adventurous than Fukuya's so far.

Complimentary chawanmushi. I'm not a big fan of chawanmushi, but this was pretty worthwhile. We enjoyed the silky texture and the generous helpings of chicken, mushrooms and other goodies encased within.

Sashimi salad. Alas, the fresh ingredients were drowned in an overly heavy sauce.

Unagi and soft shell crab makis. Satisfactory but not spectacular.
It may be too early to pass judgment on this place; hopefully in a few weeks, it might live up to its big sister's well-earned reputation.

Complimentary white wine. Wheeeee! Enough to make us happy campers.
