Miyu – Lunch Omakase at Duxton

Went to try Miyu on a friend’s suggestion after the dining-in suspension was lifted and I was glad to have my Japanese food again. The place was full for lunch as many went for their lunch sets instead. Took the Hana Omakase ($88) consisting of Appetiser, Chawanmushi, 10 pieces sushi, Ikura rice bowl, Chef’s signature roll, Tamago, Soup & Dessert. They also have a more premium selection priced $108 consisting of cooked dishes and lesser sushi pieces

I didn’t like the setup cos the counter was way too high. It makes taking the sushi off the counter slightly uncomfortable

Caesar Salad with Yuzu

The salad was pretty normal. It honestly felt a dish you can make at home. Just find all the relevant ingredients and mix it up yourself. There was another dish – seaweed from Okinawa with ginger and vinegar but I was too excited to have it so no photos. lol

Scallop Chawanmushi w Pepper Leaf

Smooth chawanmushi and nicely done scallop. Love the addition of the pepper leaf for some kick

Monkfish Liver from Hokkaido

And cos I was the first customer for the Chef, I get an additional ankimo which was pretty decent

Kanpachi

I thought the vinegar was not too bad but could be stronger. The taste did not last long in the mouth and after awhile, you could only taste the texture and flavour of the rice itself.  To be honest, I wasn’t exactly blown away by the fish too. It was okay, but nothing to shout about. And there were a few pieces where you can taste the sinew so..

Saba from Osaka

But the Saba was good. It had the right amount of oil and the fish was really quite delicious

Yuzu Icecream

I thought the cooked dishes/fish was better than the raw ones. It was a very okay meal at best, though their chutoro, uni and sushi roll was pretty good. Perhaps you can give their lunch sets a try instead and see if it was any good. But I probably don’t see myself returning anytime soon
