[Happy Anniversary] Dinner at Uya 四代目菊川
After our fabulous dinner at Spago at the SkyPark, Marine Bay Sand Hotels which Baby had planned for me, I decided to bring him for another round of celebration as a way of saying thanks! I made a quick reservation to dine at Uya Unagi Singapore Restaurant (Uya 四代目菊川) which is located at Wheelock Place. We had passed by this place once and it caught our eye, so we decided to pay this place a visit.
During our trip in 2019 to Narita, Tokyo, we witnessed the eels ‘being slit alive as an ultimate proof of freshness' while passing by a famous Unagi eatery place. Baby actually video-ed the process as it was open to public viewing! Back then, we wanted to try eating at the place but we were disappointed when we heard that there was a 3 hour wait for a table! Hence, this is why when we chanced upon Uya Unagi in Singapore which offers the same 'Live Unagi Dining' concept, we KIV'ed it for dining!
Upon entering the premises, a strong zen atmosphere came to my mind, as this restaurant incorporates a traditional Japanese restaurant design with a contemporary touch.
We are glad that we finally able to try the premium unagi. Oh well, the enjoyment of premium unagi comes with a price tag. The damage for two was SGD116-ish. I will still be back again despite of its hefty price tag, as it is compensated by the quality grilled unagi which lives up to my expectations!
