Katachi Style Sushi at the retail part of the Capitol Kempinski Hotel is a good-looking Japanese restaurant. With a convenient underground connection to the City Hall MRT station, we were able to get there for lunch without getting wet by the heavy rain.
According to the Katachi Style Sushi Capitol website, it is “an upscale and comprehensive Japanese Sushi “Kaiseki” and Sushi Restaurant” offering “exceptional dining and take‑out experiences”. The decor is neat and simple. We thought that it looks better from the outside than the inside.
Katachi Style Sushi Capitol Menu
A wide range of dining options are available at the Katachi Style Sushi restaurant. In addition to the a la carte menu, there is a series of set lunch menus. These range from nigri sushi to steak and noodle dishes. Here is a picture of the lunch menu. If time and budget are not constraints, the various omakase style menus might be more interesting. We decided on an Kashiwa Inaniwa Udon with Chicken Thigh set ($18++) and a Grilled Fish of the day set ($28++). Since we were also feeling hungry we also added some ebi tempura ($6.80 for 2 prawns).
We had selected the Inaniwa udon lunch set as it has been some time since we had Inaniwa noodles. These thin, slippery noodles can be delicious even though they are simply prepared. The one at Katachi Style Sushi Capitol was not as light and smooth as we had anticipated and we thought that the soup was rather salty. We were glad we ordered the extra tempura prawns as it made the whole meal more interesting.
Our other lunch set was more interesting. The grilled fish of the day was a piece of grilled cod fish served with a sweet sauce. The size of the fish was rather small but the taste was good. As in the case of the noodles, we were glad we added had added some tempura prawns to the meal. At $6.80, this was good value for money and the highlight of our lunch at Katachi Style Sushi.
A simple scoop of green tea ice-cream was the dessert. It was good – creamy and had a reasonably strong matcha taste.
