Satsuma is located near Clarke Quay within the premises of Gallery Hotel. Interestingly is the only restaurant of its type in Singapore that doesn’t serve Sake but instead serves Sochu ^^
Taken from their own site.
“The first and only Shochu specialty Japanese restaurant in Singapore, Satsuma serves a wide menu of Tokyo-styled food with a contemporary twist to complement the 100 labels of shochu by-the-glass.
*Shochu, a distilled alcoholic beverage (made of sweet potato, rice, barley, etc) is currently enjoying explosive popularity in Japan for being the healthier and trendier choice drink.”
Special attention even to the littlest of details. Having a background in scale modeling, I can appreciate the little things that they add to the whole experience. Japanese styled containers, soy sauce bottles and in particular…
Special thanks to angela for suggesting such a wonderful place to meet. Too bad I don’t drink alcohol if not I am sure the drinks will taste as good as the food!! I love the ambiance and really makes it a very very nice place for a small gathering of close friends ^^. Its a wonderful feeling being able to keep in touch with old friends once in a while, truly blessed to have known them during years at university.
Also one more thing…
There is a story behind this cup of water. While I was waiting for my friends as I arrived way early, it was a hot afternoon after my trip from china town to Gallery Hotel. The Satsuma stuff staff (thanks bd for the correction ^^) noticed that and gave me a glass of water without me asking. I am very touched by such a small gesture. If you are the guy who gave me that glass of water and is reading this thanks! Definitely will visit the place again. Its the little things that count!
Maybe i’ll try the Shochus next round 😀
Till the next dinner!!
