Now for a Japanese Smoke Out.... at Kazu Sumiyaki

Cuppage plaza, one of the few old buildings on Orchard Road, a bit dingy but still retains its 80s' charm, it houses some Japanese establishments which include restaurants, night clubs and massage parlors. Cute Cute, a lover of Japanese food, happened to be exploring Cuppage Plaza and looking out for great Japanese restaurants when he chanced upon Kazu Sumiyaki. When he was first there, he was so surprised to see that the place was packed and reservations were needed. The whole of Cuppage plaza was so empty but yet this place was packed to the brim! Cute Cute decided to make it a date night out with Cuchi to impress her with this new find....

The lions requested for the counter seat as they enjoy watching the masters at work. Surprisingly, the prices of the yakitori skewers are very reasonable. What caught their eyes was the foie gras which is very affordable. Kazu also has their own seasonal menu which changes frequently.

From left: Squid tentacles, pork belly, chicken ball, beef ball

A unique utensil just for skewers
Now the food took sometime to come so the lions just enjoyed watching the masters at work as they take out the food to be bbq in various ways.

 The skewers were wonderful, nicely charred and each emitting their own unique taste.
Scallop with leeks
Lamb chops

Pork with basil, beef and enoki
Loving every item that they ordered, the lions were really enjoying their meal and the time passed so fast that they found out that they were there for already one and a half hours. Extremely delightful, cosy but bustling little place, Kazu Sumiyaki does really know how to impress the diners.
