Hiryu – Contemporary Japanese Cuisine at Tras Street

Had my birthday lunch at the newly opened Hiryu, a contemporary Japanese restaurant that incorporates traditional Japanese ingredients with a variation of inventive Japanese techniques. The place is helmed by Chef Raymond Tan who also previously worked at Sushi Jin and Sushi Murasaki. We went for the Omakase; Sugi priced at $128. The menu consists of 3 kinds of seasonal sashimi, hot appetiser, 6 pieces of sushi, 1 maki, miso soup & dessert and the chef has kindly upgraded to the premium ingredients for us šŸ™‚

The place was quite packed for a Monday lunch so I guess reservations are encouraged

I love everything about the sashimi being served that day. You can taste the freshness and sweetness from each dish and the addition of truffle made it more delectable

Miso Soup

In general, the sushi cannot be compared to premium sushi houses for I think there is something lacking in the rice. But I thought overall it’s still pretty decent

And a birthday dessert to complete it all. I find it funny how the chef awkwardly sing the birthday song for me. HA

If you are expecting quality of traditional nigiri sushi, you will probably be disappointed. But I think the overall cross over of traditional Japanese ingredients and modern ingredients did work, one way or another. I probably don’t mind returning, just a good and enjoyable meal
