Sakutto Tempura & Oyster – New Tempura Joint by The Team from Kakiin Oyster Bar

Knew the existence of this place when we were at the whisky bar round the corner so I was quite excited when it finally opened. Managed to grab the friend for dinner so I could finally give this place a try

Botan Prawn marinated with Dassai45 $18
I liked the prawn too. It was sweet and you could taste a slight layer of sake in it

Scallop & Aji Namero w Seaweed $22
This was a dish I feel is a good 下酒菜 lol. Like it’s good to just go together with some alcohol

Japanese Sweet Potato $6 (left) Amadai $16 (right)

The sweet potato was alright. We both agree the Amadai was okay but we had better. Lol

Shirako Tempura $17
The Shirako wasn’t good. It was too milky. The friend finished my piece

Awabi $22

I really liked the abalone. You could still enjoy the tender pieces even though it was deep fried

Maitake Mushroom $7
Ooh we really liked the mushroom especially when you dip in the tempura sauce. The mushroom with the sauce was delicious

Teba Goza $6
I thought the stuffed chicken wings were good too. I liked that it had no bones. Lol

Tencha w Dashi Soup $17

17882311-89CE-4A51-9337-C21B4275CD2F

The friend wanted the tencha. I had 2 mouthfuls cos I was so full by then. It was a very comforting bowl of rice with Dashi broth. It’s the kind where you had too much drinks and you need something to sober up. Lol

Matcha Icecream $6
And ending off with some icecream to end the night! Cos I was craving for it

I liked that Sakutto had a good selection of menu and the batter of the tempura I felt was generally decent.  It wasn’t too thick and each piece was deep fried nicely. Waiting time for the food might be a little long at times so be prepared to wait a little. Else, it’s a good joint to visit and I would love to go back again 

And for those interested in their ala carte menu
