#OfficeDiaries: Trying Premium Omakase Dinner at Miraku 味楽 @ Icon Village Singapore – 15 May 2024

Ok let’s be frank, my work stuff is pretty boring if you read daily so let’s skip that and head to the main highlight for tonight after work! Here’s presenting our tasting dinner at the newly opened Miraku located at Icon Village.

They may have just opened for a year or so, however they have garnered over 200+ Google reviews ranking it 4.8 stars for an omakase restaurant and this is a great feat! Unsurprisingly that’s because of the price point of their omakase starting at an affordable $88 or $108 for lunch; and the most premium option going at $228 for lunch / dinner; a steal when many options out there can be higher.

With that said, there are no corners cut here for an omakase experience at Miraku. You enter in this little discreet doorway to their main dining room where you can find 3 chef stations and a maximum of ~20 diners within a room seated theatre style. 1 chef services a row of 7-8 diners and you can see your dishes being prepared in front of you. Service here is also comfortable and top notch from both the chefs and waiters / waitresses here.

We were treated to their Miramu Premium Omakase at $228 per person for this particular tasting and it offers a full range of dishes as seen pictured above. What I can guarantee you = confirm 100% full!

Added to that, you can pair your meal with their range of high end sake and other alcoholic drinks that will complement the dishes. Just ask your server and chef for recommendations and they will gladly assist! In our case, they let us try their signature Miraku sake and this paired well with many of the dishes we tried today.

Lets start off with our appetiser:

3 kind miraku house appetiser:
1. Shiromi tart – Japanese white fish marinated in, served with home made rice cracker
2. Nagaochi tart – minced fatty tuna belly served with rice monaka I biscuit
3. Akagai korokke 

Our favourite is definitely #2 for the burst of flavours in our mouths. The other 2 were just delicious as well, a mixture and a play of flavours and temperatures.

1st seasonal appetiser:
– Aburi hotate , kuroma ebi ( Japanese tiger prawn ) served with junsai (water shield) and homemade dashi jelly

2nd seasonal appetiser:
– Uni , nama yuba ( Japanese bean curd skin) served with seafood stock

3rd seasonal appetiser:
– Hotaru ika ( fire fly squid ), taro yam served with arima sansho sauce ( Japanese pepper corn )

I loved all the seasonal appetisers that serves to whet your appetite and these are not your normal basic ones; with uni, hotate, ika – yums.

We enjoyed the next few dishes especially with their signature egg yolk shoya sauce. Loved the sukiyaki with the hidden onsen tamago at the bottom too..Melts in your mouth and so so delicious!

– Chutoro with kimi shoyu ( egg yolk shoya sauce)
– A4 Hokkaido sukiyaki with onsen tamago

This is followed by 2 kinds of sashimi:
– Aburi Tachio ( Japanese silver belt fish )
– Ishidai ( knife jaw seabream )

Plus a whole range of Sushi which aren’t your usual ingredients. Many of which I’ve never tried before! And if you find that there’s just too much rice; ask your chef to give you a smaller rice portion like I did 🙂

1. Isaki ( grunt fish )
2. Kinmedai golden eye red snapper
3. Managatsuo ( Japanese silver pomfret)
4. Kamasu (Japanese barracuda)
5. Botan ebi ( Japanese spot prawn )
6. Kegani Uni ( Japanese hairy crab with Uni )
7. Toro maki ( 3 kind Japanese hon maguro with marinated egg yolk and pickles

If you think that meal is over..nope we still have more!

Including a mini Uni ikura rice bowl before ending off with some hot Shiro miso ( white miso soup ) and hojicha tea for digestion and ending off with dessert of sweet Japanese rock melon and mochi with cream custard and starched arrow root.

Surprisingly even though I was really full, the meal didn’t feel too heavy thanks to that hojicha tea. We went away feeling satisfied and happy before strolling around 20-30 mins to let the food digest. Overall, definitely an unforgettable omakase meal that I would consider bringing my friends or treating someone here to a birthday meal!

P.s there were 2 birthdays celebrated during our tasting session and they received a little mini cake and slice of melon with a happy birthday song from the staff so remember to let them know in advance for this sweet surprise!

Thanks for having us 🙂 Was looking forward to this tasting and I’m so glad it lived up to the expectations! Let me know if you went to try it as well!
