Chikuwa Tei

Chikuwa Tei_Chiraishi

Chikuwa Tei strikes me as being very unpretentious and down-to-earth. The most famous item on its menu is the chirashi set, so this was a must order for me.

While not the most memorable bowl of chirashi that I've ever had (that honour goes to Aoki, followed by Inagiku), but certainly very decent for the price (SGD25) - thickly sliced, fresh assorted sashimi, sitting on top of well seasoned sushi rice. E's order of the grilled tai lunch set (SGD20) was amazingly value-for-money, comprising a tasty fillet of the fish, a heap of thick salmon sashimi slices, a tasty cup of chawanmushi that was chock-a-block with nameko mushrooms, and the obligatory rice/pickles/miso soup.

Indeed one could do a lot worse than Chikuwa Tei if you're thinking about where to go for a good, honest and wallet-friendly Japanese meal.
