Misato is a rather new addition to The Centre Point, started in June this year. But I’ve received news from fellow bloggers that the tableware used here costs over $400,000 SGD! The owner really places alot of importance on how quality food is served to you.
1. Cheese Korroke $7.90++
The Cheese Korokke has crispy exterior with a smooth creamy texture on the inside. What surprised us was the cheese pulling! The cheese was delicate and yet flavourful. Definitely a must order for us!
2. Sanshoku Warabi Mochi $8.80++
Huge fans of warabi mochi, this is a must try, within the next 5 months. For about-to-be-addicted fans of warabi mochi, Warabi Mochi is a chilled, deliciously chewy, jelly-like mochi covered with sweet and nutty soybean powder and drizzled with kuromitsu syrup. The Mochi here melts in your a mouth with a soft pillowy effect, the flavours of the brown sugar or matcha is distinct and easily picked up by your tastebuds. Please taste this delicious dessert without syrup first, before add the brown sugar syrup in small increments to taste.
3. Matcha Zenasai Mochi $7.80++
I’ve never seen such cute cutlery served to me in a dessert. Check out these 2 little piggies starring at me, squealing “Poke the torched marshmallow with us please!” Yes, the wait staff told us to poke the torched marshmallow which was sheltering a huge serving of red beans. When mixed together, this is an earthly bitter green tea drink with sweetness from the red beans and the marshmallow. A very interesting dessert, in my opinion.
4. Misato Oyakodon $13.90++ *Highly Recommended*
There’s so much passion placed into served this oyako. Let’s start with the exquisite tableware, and move onto the tobiko placed into a heart. A portion of ikura placed on a leaf, and another small serving of green tobiko placed onto the seaweed. All these fish eggs, together with a poached egg, the flavours were all there!
Dig your spoon into the rice through the juicy layer of egg and sample the taste first, before poking through the yoke in the middle, and mixing it so that the yoke and sauce cover each perfectly cooked grain of rice. Take your time to savour each spoonful of this substantial bowl of deliciousness made with the simplest yet precious ingredients.
5. Misato Ebi Donburi $15.90++
Ebi! I love my fried tempura prawn, and there’s even more tobiko here, of the black variant too. This is like the oyakodon but upgraded with 3 sizeable ebis!
6. Gyoza $13.80++
These gyozas are home-made and have a really crisp exterior but on the other size, really light and thin. The skin of the gyoza is able to hold the gyoza together and yet not too thick and doughy, that would cause it to be ger-lat. Lots of cabbage in the gyoza, but I felt that the fillings could be a slightly more flavourful.
7. Okonomiyaki $14.90++
Okonomiyaki is sometimes translated into English as “As-you-like-it Pancake”. The dish is mainly made of cabbage, flour, egg and dashi batter. It’s important to have a good grill when cooking this pancake, and as soon as it’s golden, you have to drizzle on Kewpie mayo, okonomiyaki sauce (a thick, Worcestershire-like condiment), powdered nori, and bonito flakes. This is so, when you serve the okonomiyaki to the customers, it is still crispy around the edges and yet light and fluffy on the inside with crunchy cabbage!
8. Kuzukiri $8.80++
Kuzukiri is a noodle dish that uses powder made from the root of the kudzu plant. Kudzu is also known in Japan as an herbal medicine since long ago. Although kuzukiri itself is almost tasteless, it is served with syrup, which creates an enjoyable balance between the smooth texture of the noodles and the sweetness of the syrup. This dessert is perfect for any hot Singaporean day as it is chilled, and is not too sweet.
9. Matcha Bavarois $7.80++
Probably one of the most hyped dessert at Misato, this wobbly green tea jelly can wobble almost for infinity! After your numerous boomerangs, videos and photos. This matcha jelly is to be enjoyed slowly. Take your spoon and gently slide it down the smooth jelly edges. It carries a bitter-sweet taste and enjoy as the jelly melts in your mouth. Misato makes a total of 12 of these beauties daily.
10. Hoba Miso Beef $38.80++
Hoba Miso is served by grilling food with fermented soybean paste and magnolia leaves. Hoba Miso is a regional dish in Hida Takayama area of Japan. “Hoba” means a magnolia leaf in Japanese and the dried hoba leaf is soaked then used to cook the sweet miso mixture over fire. This is such a humble dish, yet it tastes so amazing I remembered the experience as if I just ate it yesterday. The miso would be heated until it bubbles around the edge and the miso was still bubbling when it was served to us. With chopsticks, scoop small amount of miso and enjoy it together with steamed rice.
The beef used here is A5 grade Ohmi wagyu beef! It seriously melts in your mouth! I’m not kidding!
Overall : Yes! I’m sold to Misato. So much love for food and as a customer I can feel the love from the food. I’m so heading back down for more Warabi mochi, green tea jelly, Hoba Miso Beef, and Oyakodon!
