It was my last day in Singapore and with few hours to spare, I followed my sister to the city to run some errands before going to the airport. Given an hour or so, I was left alone strolling around along Orchard Road.

Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant

And that’s when I stumbled upon Watami, a Japanese restaurant which sounded really familiar to me, when I was bumming around lost inside Ion Orchard. It took me quite awhile to recall as I remembered I read about this Japanese restaurant from somewhere.

Thinking it would be good to grab a quick bite before my flight, off I went inside without a second thought – since the review I read about this restaurant was good. A quick flip through their menu, I set upon and ordered two items…

Wafu Hitokuchi Steak

First up was Wafu Hitokuchi Steak. Lightly seasoned bite-size steaks were cooked to perfection, retaining its flavour inside while remained tender and juicy. Pardon me for the poor photo quality though.

Salmon Splendour

The second dish was Salmon Splendour. It’s a bit of everything – 3 types to be exact – that consist of salmon.

Salmon Sashimi

Salmon Splendour

There weren’t any complaints as the salmon was fresh and the remaining two were kept simple and nice.

Watami

Pride as the Japanese casual restaurant, I guess they did it nicely as the price was alright for the food they serve. Not only the staffs were friendly, the waiting time was reasonable – although it wasn’t fair to judge as I went there pretty late afternoon hours (off peak).

  1. Nice! Sg in general does mid – high end dining pretty well ;)

  2. I was just in Ion last weekend! :)
    Didn’t try this place though – was too busy walking around n stuffing my face with the Japanese stall food.

  3. Not into Japanese…and like going to Penang, if I were to go to Singapore, I would feast on the local specialties, the hawker delicacies instead of the alien stuff. The only one from outside the country that I would go for would be the Nasi Padang at Rendevouz (Indonesian cuisine)…

  4. Rebecca : Yup. :D

    J : Haha. Do try when you are there again.

    suituapui : Their western meals are pretty good as well. Hehe.
