All the pictures in this post are taken by him and the food was pretty awesome too! I'm sure you'll feel hungry after reading this post so keep on reading and enjoy!

-------------------------------------------------------

Hi, to all readers!! It had been quite sometime since I've written anything about food. This time, I will be sharing with you readers on Japanese food - Barashi-Tei! It is not very far from the nearest MRT station, and you can choose where you like to walk from - Dhoby Ghaut or Bras Basah. Wait... Isn't it located in the middle of town? Yea it definitely is and you can get a decent meal at a reasonable price!

Sounds good? I shall not hold you back and lets us have a look what good food they have:

Barashi Tei Food Review Avocado Salmon Salad Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Avocado Salmon Salad - $13.80
The avocado is tasty, soft, not like the one you got it from other places which are hard. The salmon is cooked just nice, each bite can feel the meat texture of salmon.

Barashi Tei Food Review Salad Sashimi Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Salad Sashimi - $13.80
Who loves Sashimi? If you like it, you should come and try this! The sashimi is fresh (try it and you will agree) and the meat is very chewy. Every bite makes me want more >< 

Barashi Tei Food Review Dragon Maki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Dragon Maki - $8.80
Dragon? The name is Awesome and so is the dish! It just melts in your mouth when u put it in and chew. It has both avocado and fish topping which makes it tastier. The fish topping is juicier compared to avocado. Does that mean that the fish are all fresh? Let check out the rest and find out.

Barashi Tei Food Review Spicy Salmon Maki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Spicy Salmon Maki - $12.80
HOT!! Just kidding! The spiciness is just a little bit, like tingling feeling in your mouth. The crispy of the seaweed can be felt with the wrap. The mentai on top is creamy too. One of my personal favourite! (Luna: I HAVE to make a comment on this maki haha. It is seriously BOMB!!! You have to try it! I love it totally haha)

Barashi Tei Food Review Rice Paper Ebi Maki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Barashi Tei Food Review Rice Paper Ebi Maki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Barashi Tei Food Review Rice Paper Ebi Maki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Rice Paper Ebi Maki - $10.80
I had always thought that Ebi had a hard shell which I am not wrong but in this case, I am surprised! The Ebi is crispy and has a soft (skin). The wrap is also easily bitten off which make nibbling much easier. The sauce is creamy too. 

Barashi Tei Food Review Aburi Bara Chirashi Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Aburi Bara Chirashi - $16.80
The rice is from japan itself! The pearl rice just tastes so different from the normal rice we had. The rice is also mixed with some sauce to make it tastier. I can just eat the rice itself without feeling it is plain! The fish roll is big and fresh!!! When put in your mouth, it just burst! OMG, the fish roe is also fresh! looks like all the fish dishes are fresh!

Barashi Tei Food Review Chirashi Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Barashi Tei Food Review Chirashi Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Chirashi - $23
The sashimi is thicker and juicer when to compare to the salad. Tamago is just very soft like cheese when you bite but hard looking on the outside. The exterior taste like anywhere else, but the interior, it just melts in your mouth. It is one of a kind.  The rice is much plainer because of the sashimi. You will not want your rice extra taste to spoil the taste of the sashimi.

Barashi Tei Food Review Sirloin Steak Foie Gras Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Sirloin Steak Foie Gras - $19.80
Looks nice, isn't it? I wish I can tell you the taste but I can't as I don't eat beef. >< Maybe you try and let me know? :)

Barashi Tei Food Review Gindara Nabe Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Gindara Nabe - $24
The soup is very sweet and rich in flavor. The veggie inside is soft too. The fish in it is very sweet too. All the food in this dish is just sweet! I just feel like the taste of this dish is very special. It is like the dish had been boiling for some time to let the veggies and the meats release the flavor into the soup.  

Barashi Tei Food Review Red Bean Spring Roll Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Barashi Tei Food Review Red Bean Spring Roll Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Red Bean Spring Roll - $3.80
Crispy & sweet, just like any spring roll. The only difference is the skin of the spring roll is cool, but the red bean inside is still warm, as though it had a warm blanket covering it.

Barashi Tei Food Review Tomato Bacon Kushi Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Tomato Bacon Kushi - $1.80
The bacon is warm and crispy and the cherry tomatoes make the whole taste more balanced and less heavy which commonly happens when tasting meat. 

Barashi Tei Food Review Ika Teriyaki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog

Barashi Tei Food Review Ika Teriyaki Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Ika Teriyaki - $13.80
When I eat squid, I am always thinking if this is going to taste rubbery or not. Luckily, in Barashi-Tei, Ika is not rubbery as i fear. The meat is cooked till it is soft and chewy. Together with the Teriyaki sauce topping, it just makes the dish much tastier.

Barashi Tei Food Review Yuzu Lunarrive Singapore Lifestyle Blog
Yuzu (hot) - $3.80
The drink I chose is Yuzu. It comes in nice and warm, not too sweet, not too sour. Just the taste it should be. (Luna: And I love it! <3 haha)
