DBS Indulge Underground SupperClub At Hashi Japanese Restaurant (箸)

It was another soulful night where foodies, friends & couples bond over food at The Underground #SupperClub, jointly organized by DBS Bank Ltd & the Asian Food Channel; an exclusive event for DBS/POSB Credit & Debit Cardmembers.

The host for the event was Chef Tadashi Takahashi, Executive Chef of Hashi Japanese Restaurant (箸). The jovial Chef Tadashi opened his first restaurant #Hashi in Singapore in May 2013, which resides in the 1st level of a heritage conservation shophouse just below the famed OSO Ristorante.

If you haven’t stepped into Hashi before, you’ll be amazed by their flamboyant decor; it’s nothing like any other Japanese restaurant you’ve visited. Clad in gold, wood & kimono-style furnishings, their interior will sweep you off your feet, not to mention their cuisine.

Born & raised in Tokyo, Chef Tadashi began his career working at Kaiseki Komuro restaurant, where he mastered the art of #kaiseki dining under acclaimed Japanese kaiseki chef Mitsuhiro Komuro. In 2004, Chef Tadashi crossed the globe to work at Michelin-starred Umu restaurant & Nobu in London where he perfected his techniques to move traditional Japanese cuisine into the modern age. He subsequently led the Nobu team in Melbourne before reaching our shores three years ago.

Come, let’s shoot, eat & indulge in the intricate art of savouring fine Japanese cuisine in this one-nite only event:

hashi japanese restaurant egg tofu truffle review
The aroma from the truffle was enough to blow me away with their Homemade Egg Tofu with Vegetables & Boiled Prawns with Truffle Sauce (卵豆腐と冷たい野菜、海老のトリフソースかげ). Dig into the silky smooth tofu, you’ll be overwhelmed by the accompanying truffle sauce with each spoonful of tofu in your mouth.

Guests that evening were fed with 4 Types of Seasonal Sashimi (季節のお刺身4点盛り). My pick has got to be the melt-in-your-mouth Tuna #Sashimi! Hubby & I love tuna sashimi. What’s your favourite raw fish?

If you like the smell of Yuzu, you’ll certainly enjoy the White fish with Japanese Ginkgo Nut Soup (銀杏のすり流れと白身魚). The soup was mildly scented with Yuzu Zest, & I love the starchy consistency of the broth arising from the ginkgo nuts.
Sake pairing: Tamano Hikari Omachi from Kyoto (玉の光, 京都 - 純米大吟醸 雄町)

dbs underground supperclub hashi japanese beef cheek review
Refined technique was displayed in the next dish, a magnificent savoury meat with intense flavour & texture. Beef cheek is not commonly used in Japanese cooking, but because Chef Takahashi adores that part of the meat, he decided to implement it in his cuisine. The aesthetically appealing dish was decorated with maples leaves made from gluten, signifying the change in the seasons.

dbs underground supperclub hashi japanese beef cheek reviews
The Japanese-style Slow Cooked Beef Cheek with White Radish (牛のほほ肉と大根) was such a hit that evening that it had an unanimous vote from the diners, making it the “talk of the town”. The cooking technique was as precise as a Swiss watch, & it was one of the best I’ve ever eaten even though I had an overdose of beef cheeks due to its popularity in recent years. Interestingly, there was a special concocted Japanese Chili "Yuzu Kosho" (柚子胡椒) to go along with the dish. The chilli was just as delicious, but surprisingly spicy.

The beef cheek wasn't like any I’ve tried where the sauces were usually thick n rich. Hashi's version was very much lighter, but packed a punch. I’m not sure if it’s in their Ala Carte menu already, but you just gotten try this 5-star dish!
Sake pairing: Kuota Manju from Nigata (久保田, 新潟 - 純米大吟醸 萬寿)

Next on our menu were 5 types of Chef’s Choice Seasonal Sushi (江戸前寿司5貫), paired with Sake Dassai 23 from Yamaguchi (獺祭, 山口). What I enjoy about these Underground Supperclubs is that foodies get a chance to mingle with the Chefs. Like this instance, Chef Takahashi would make his appearance in between courses to introduce his creations. If time permits, diners would also get to learn more about the chefs themselves. Don’t you think it’s like a playground for foodies to gather & mingle as well?

We’ve come to the end of our last course which was a Traditional Japanese Dessert from the 5th generation shop “Ganyuudo” in Shizuoka (和菓子 - 巌邑堂 静岡). Chef Takahashi will introduce these Japanese sweets, handcrafted by fifth-generation pastry Chef Hiromori Uchida & shipped over from his shop to Hashi on a weekly basis.
