Robatayaki (which in Japanese means fireside-cooking), often shortened to robata, refers to a traditional Japanese method of cooking. Similar to barbecue, food on skewers are slow-grilled over hot charcoal. The process and results can be dramatic. Hamanoya Robata in Dining Edition, Marina Square is a Japanese restaurant that features fresh meats and seafood grilled over a charcoal fire.
This strange looking object is a slice of cake by Cafe M from New York. They had recently opened a couple of outlets in Singapore, one of which is located in the newly created F&B zone, Dining Edition, in Marina Square.
Carnivore Appetite is one of the 16 or so restaurants situated in the ‘Dining Editions’ area of the Marina Square mall. We had, in one of our recent posts, taken you on a walk-about in this area. Carnivore Appetite was the restaurant that we ended up having lunch in.
As part of the refreshing of Marina Square, a whole section of this sprawling mall was dedicated to dining. They call this the “Dining Edition”. Located on level 2 of the mall (at the end near the Esplanade MRT station), the Dining Edition Marina Square is a collection of around 16 eateries of diverse genres and concepts. Today your ordinary patrons had lunch at one of these places and will report on this in due course. For now, we will take you on a walk though to show you the options available here. (Update Note: A number outlets have closed when we revisited the place in March 2015).
