And the Lifetime Achievement Awards goes to: Tetsuya Wakuda
[UPDATE: Waku Ghin has been elevated to two Michelin stars in the 2017 Michelin red book having been awarded one star in the inaugural Singapore Guide in 2016].
Congrats to Tetsuya Wakuda, head chef of Waku Ghin in Singapore, for his Lifetime Achievement Award from Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and Diners Club.
Exclusive has become an over used word but it’s a fitting description for Waku Ghin. There are just 25 covers, dotted among four private rooms each with a chef preparing a 10 course tasting menu on a teppanyaki grill.
To start is raw seafood, maybe sea urchin and abalone, followed by “salads” such as scallops with daikon and oyster.
The the real magic begins as your private chef cooks a succession of fish and meat dishes. It’s part theatre, part cooking lesson and a truly exclusive experience of fine Japanese dining.
Standout dish: marinated shrimp with sea urchin and caviar.
All dishes can be expertly paired with wines or saki from biodynamic Sancerre to an Australian chardonnay produced especially for the chef.
