Mikuni Fugu Grand Tasting Menu - Fairmont Singapore - Otoushi

Executive Chef Moon Kyung Soo and his team brings back the pre-eminent Fugu Grand Tasting Tour Menu ($220 per person) – a masterful eight-course feast featuring the exotic Fugu delicacy, also known as pufferfish or globefish – to Mikuni, Fairmont Singapore.

Whether you’re a curious fugu-virgin or an adventurous fish-lover, don’t miss this chance to savour ‘Tora Fugu‘ (tiger pufferfish) – a specially imported, premium species of fugu from Japan’s Yamaguchi prefecture.

The Grand Tasting Tour Menu starts with an exquisite otoushi ensemble of various edible portions of the deadly fish: Fugu Broth Jelly filled with delicate silvers of fugu skin captured in motion; a Fugu Sushi Ball dabbed with Japanese plum sauce; caviar-topped minced Tuna Belly balanced on a tiny bed of sundried fugu; and a divine Fugu Shirako Chawanmushi (globefish sperm egg custard) topped with bonito.

Instead of the pedestrian ponzu pairing, Chef Moon matches his delicious starter of lightly-seared Tora Fugu Wraps, enjoyed with seasonal Japanese mini cabbage and leek flowers, with a more robust miso barley to accentuate the clean taste of the fish.

A highlight is the interactive course of Fugu Sashimi, where baby leeks and strips of inner and outer fugu skin are meant to be rolled within the sashimi slices and appreciated with just a hint of ponzu sauce.

Each plate of fugu sashimi is also served with a fugu tail – the black markings a proof of authenticity for Tora Fugu.
