Koma Singapore – A Feast for The Camera

Actually have seen this place popping up in a couple of friends’ IG and thought the interior looks pretty grandeur. So when the friend suggested this place for lunch, thought it was a good opportunity to finally dress up and go out. HA. Located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, it is towards the foodcourt end but don’t miss the theatre-like entrance. And of course when you stepped through the Tori Gates, that’s when you really miss Japan

So pretty right?

Love the high ceilings and the slightly darkened atmosphere for the romantic feel

Details

We took one 2-course lunch set ($39++) and a 3-course lunch set ($49++) cos the only difference is the dessert and by looks of the menu, it wasn’t anything exciting

Crispy Chicken

Flat Rice, Truffle Salt, Tomato Ponzu

Starter in our lunch set, the crispy chicken was crisp but yet not too dry. It’s like eating a well-executed piece of chicken karaage but slightly more fancy

Salmon Tataki

Apple Salad, Ponzu, Arugula Salad

Slightly cooked at the edges, drizzled in an appetising ponzu sauce. It’s a very normal salmon takaki dish

A5 Wagyu Beef Tenderloin 120g (Add $130++)

Rainbow Carrots, Red Wine Sauce

Probably the one that stood out the most, the wagyu beef was tender with a melt-in-your-mouth kind texture. But then again, for additional top up, it better be good lah

Assorted 12 pcs sushi

Spicy Tuna Maki, Spicy Yellowtail Maki, California Maki, Tuna, Salmon & Yellowtail Sushi

The maki fare better than the nigiri. I guess the slightly spicy flavour makes the whole maki more interesting so much that the nigiri sushi was somewhat outshone

Momoiro $22

Honjozo, Yuzu Shu, Lychee & Raspberry Puree

They have good sake cocktails. Wasn’t that keen in ordering a whole bottle of sake cos by looks of the prices, it ain’t that cheap. In the end we did a carafe and ended the meal with some cocktails instead

Bonsai

Molten Dark Chocolate, Crunchy Praline

Probably the most ordered dessert and the most instagrammable one. Everything was edible, including the pot. Felt the sponge was a little dry and the chocolate a little too sweet

The mochi ice cream was part of the complimentary desserts in the 2-course lunch set

Honestly, was the food good? Well, it’s not inedible. Was it Japanese-standard good? No, it’s not. I felt like this was more American-style Japanese like they use simple ingredients and make it more fancy so that you feel like what you paying seems to be more worth it. But in actual fact, if you do the additional top-up and all, the whole bill ain’t that cheap either. But that being said, it’s a pretty place and sometimes, well you just wanna check out a pretty place. This is definitely one where you can take lots of photos, dress up and have some fancy cocktails there. And judging from the pretty-full reservation list, I think that’s what people are doing
