Hana Japanese Restaurant, Orchard Forum: Artisanal Japanese Food, A Beautiful Space

hana restaurant singapore reviewSmall world! The boss of Hana Restaurant turns out to be in Huccalyly’s kettlebell class. The kettlebellers (kettlebellas?) nicknamed him “Handsome.” “Handsome” and the chef fly to Japan regularly to choose, buy, and carry back ingredients themselves: now this is what “artisanal” means. Expect seasonal seafood and vegetables on the menu.

OK. You won’t be full after the mains but since you have saved at least $60, you can order other dishes (mostly from $10-$28). I recommend:

They use their own homemade teriyaki sauce, which is awesomely salty; it is almost too salty but pulls back at the edge to produce umami. They grill the skin to an aromatic charred smokey crisp, as if deep fried, so the fat under the skin melts in your mouth.

In a recent survey, 2/3 Singaporeans eat out more often than eating at home. Which means most of us would spend money on at least 11 meals a week at hawker centres and restaurants. If you use the Entertainer App just once at Hana, you would have already recoup the cost of the app ($60). You’d save so much money with the app! Here is another money saving way: discount code 2015RERG gives you 10% off the app. Don’t say bojio.
