Bad decisions make good stories. And I always have a good story.

Teppei’s $80 omakase is really as flawless as they say

I just realised I went to all the trouble of post-processing all my Teppei photos after having one of the best dinners ever there in March this year, but never got around to posting them ? So here we are: An article dedicated to one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life.

Teppei serves $80 omakase dinners, which consists of 20 over courses (according to them), both main and mini ones. Pricey for one meal perhaps, but very reasonable when you consider the prices at other omakase restaurants in Singapore. But it’s damn worth it la ok!!

Seats are quite hard to get because there are only 2 dinner sessions per day and each accommodates only 22 people. But I think it’s not as crazy as last time when you really have to reserve months in advance.

Teppei drinks

Sorry to disappoint, but it’s not really whisky hahaha. It’s tea (and free-flow) to help wash down all the rich and sinful food you are about to eat…

Teppei starter

Starters! Teppei’s menu is seasonal so actually I would totally okay with returning each month hahaha.

Teppei sashimi

This was soooo satisfying I can’t even ?

Teppei sushi

I can’t remember what was nside anymore except that there were crunchy bits.

Teppei handroll

Here at Teppei, everyone is seated at the counter bar and the staff places each dish in front of you (some have a lot of antics) so it was quite an experience too.

Teppei oyster

What a freaking huge oyster and freaking delicious. Too bad we only get one each.

Teppei crab

Heavenly crab leg and broth.

Teppei special

Ok I can’t remember what is this either but like everything else we were served, it tasted awesome. Everyone gets only one spoonful each (unfortunately) but the staff held everything nicely and let us take a photo first.

Teppei fish

Soooo gooood but there are bones inside.


I think this is eel.

Teppei wagyu beef

Wagyu beef!!! Only three pieces so I made myself savour them slowly ?

Teppei prawn

Gosh no words will do this justice…

Main course! Everyone gets to choose what they want from several options so of course I picked wagyu beef fried rice! Best shit ever.

Teppei dessert

Same for dessert, you get to choose from many flavours and they even offer you seconds.

Teppei birthday

It was someone’s birthday when we went so the lights suddenly went out and the staff broke into a birthday song. Then they presented the birthday star with a glorious sashimi cake (not really actual cake but donburi, which is even more awesome).

Anyway I didn’t expect to be sooo stuffed (not just full, but exploding) from these little dishes (there were a few courses I didn’t feature) and tea!

So ya really damn worth it and I can’t wait to come back! ???

Cheap German food and zichar at a place I have been forbidden to reveal

We went for dinner yesterday at a place that Jeremy recommended, but he doesn’t want word about it to get around because it will become crowded and mainstream hahaha. So all I’ll say is that it’s in the heartlands.

Food is so so so yum and the prices there are unbelievable for what you get. Like my marina aglio olio for only $6.90.

Marina Aglio Olio

Seafood spaghetti

Actually the linguine itself was on the bland side but I spammed a lot of chilli flakes so it’s okay. I think they are quite generous with the seafood though, considering the price.

German knuckles

Only $9.90 for half a german knuckle with sides! ? ? ? The sauce is freaking awesome, I wonder what they used to make it?

Cheap German knuckles in Singapore

The skin is sooo crispy (though the starchy part got stuck to my teeth at one point) and the meat is very tender. Sinful but who cares… for now.

Singapore best German knuckle

Don’t know why but we were eating halfway when the stall assistant came up to our table and said this piece of German knuckle was on the house from her boss. Maybe cos we ordered a lot or maybe cos they were closing. But it was s nice of them!

The rosti is only $3 and beer costs like $8 per glass mug? Really damn cheap!!

Sambal fish rice

There’s a zichar stall there too with equally value-for-money set meals. This sambal fish + egg + vegetables + rice set that CK ordered costs only $6.50 and the taste is 10/10 for me (the pasta and knuckles had downsides). They have other seafood combinations like stingray, sotong and prawns too.

I wish I had stomach space for this. It’s the real gem for me because you know how much I love rice. Totally going back next time for the ala carte dishes (especially since I have a direct bus from home yay ?

Another new place added to my favourites list!
