Watami Japanese Casual Dining. John's dinner treat! yey!
It was Saturday night, and ION was helluva place, like gateway mall on a rush-hour-friday. The queue for every restaurant in ION was soooo long, even dunkin' donuts. Thinking that my mom would be shocked to eat other Asian cuisine other than Chinese, Japanese or Thai, it was safe to eat in a Japanese restaurant on our first night in SG.
Watami's menu was quite complex, where dishes span from the traditional Japanese, going on to the more modern 'Omakase" style dishes. Since they (not me) were tired from the day's activities, they decided to pick the set menu instead.

We then chose the set menu "Four pax for 95$SG". The set includes 4 single serve iced tea (or green tea) aside from the and various dishes:
Edamame (3.8) as appetizer (on foreground).
These soybeans are steamed-and-served-in-the-pods with a light sprinkling of sea salt.
Caesars Salad (8.8), topped with crisp bacon strips
Tompeiyaki which was omelette with sliced pork and raw cabbage (7.8)
Potato Mochi - chewy deep fried mashed potato served with slivers of butter (5.8)
Sashimi Mori (25.8) This consists of assorted sashimi: Salmon, tuna, shirmp, clams, scallop, octopus, and squid served in a bowl of shredded ice. What a nice presentation!
Sukiyaki Nabe (13.8) cooked on your tabletop using a portable stove
Salmon Stone Pot with rice (10.8)
Hire Katsu Tamago Toji (8.8) - Pork Fillet Cutlet with Scambled Egg Sauce, which is also cooked on your table using a portable stove.
Ps. Sorry for the photos, it was very hard to shoot under uber dimly-lit restaurants, like this one.
