As you already know by now that I enjoy eating very much and I love going around digging for yummy food with my loved ones. I have been enjoying a lot of luxury dining at half the original price thanks to American Express Platinum Credit Card Dining Privileges! Twice the food, twice the luxury, twice the happiness at half the price! Sounds too good to be true?
The American Express Platinum Credit Card offers free membership to two dining programmes, namely the Classic Far Card Membership and the PALATE programme. Under these two programmes, you have the opportunity to eat at over 80 fine dining restaurants, and enjoy drinks after, in Singapore at great discounts. So this is basically a 3 in 1 card!
With over 80 fine dining restaurants, I am spoilt for choices! After looking through the delicious long list, I decided to head over to Mikuni for some luxury Japanese cuisine! Located in Fairmount Singapore, this modern Japanese restaurant exudes a fine dining atmosphere where there are 3 live stations; Teppanyaki, Sushi and Robatayaki.
SHAKE Salmon S$20 is so fresh and delicious it melts in your mouth! The natural sweetness of each slice is like popping a happy pill for our eyes light up in joy. The whole presentation is so pretty we were even more tempted to gobble everything!
I had my fair share of uni also known as sea urchin and unless eaten fresh, one will probably not want to try eating another because of the strong fishy taste. My bff who was dining with me was sceptical but after her first bite, she wanted to fight me off for the 3rd piece! Haha we are in love with the fresh Truffle Sea Urchin Tofu S$38. The taste is heavenly and the whole presentation with the bean curd tofu above the uni, the truffle soya and caviar on the sea urchin shell. We also had a plate of delicious Hotate Mentaiko S$28 (Hokkaido Scallops) filled with marinated cod roe and yuzu butter!
We wanted something sweet and got the very friendly waiter to help recommend. He suggested a sweet sparkling Harushika Tokimeki Sake S$55 with fruity kiwi and ripe citrus fruit. We had a good time drinking and catching up.
I first “met” this dish when I attended Amex card launch and has since fell in love! I highly recommended to readers and friends I’ve met at Savour 2014! Ladies and gentleman, meet my highly raved love, Truffle Kampachi S$30, the very delicious yellow tail soaked in yuzu, black truffle soya accompanied by lily bulb and micro cress. One plate is not enough and we nearly ordered a 2nd serving!
Ebiten Tempura S$33 was so enjoyable for the Live Prawns are fresh and juicy. A nice bowl of hot seaweed soup filled with Kyushu Giant Clam S$20 perfect to warm and clear our throats while we wait for our mains to arrive.
For my main, I decided to order my all-time favourite sweet soy sauce soup, Sukiyaki Konabe S$48, which comes with large tender slices of delicious looking marbled Wagyu beef!
My bff ordered the Lobster Uni Yaki S$48 and love the juicy grilled Boston lobster served with Sea Urchin Cream. She easily cleaned out her plate and started talking about desserts.
Dinner is not complete without desserts so we decided to try the Ice Mochi S$28 which according to the waitress comes in assorted flavours and decorated with sweet red beans. The mocha comes in mango, sakura and matcha flavours and goes really well with the red beans.
My bill came up to S$440+ but thanks to #AmexSG I receive 50% off dining and paid only S$220.99!!! Great savings for the pocket and ultimate pampering with so much good food! Value for money and I’m off to searching for my next dining venture! #allinmypocket #TheFarCard #PalateSG #AmexPlatinumCreditCard #PlatPrivateDeals
