Goto Japanese Restaurant


Lunch at Goto is a fix prix affair that cost $68+. In kaiseiki fashion, seasonal ingredients were used for some of the dishes. The sashimi was not as wonderful as I expected it to be. Overall, I was not overwhelmed by the food although I must say I loved the steamed dishes: third course that was some grated lotus root with unagi hidden below and a sticky sauce and the rice course that was steamed glutinous rice that was deliciously chewy and soft and scented with sweet chestnuts and gingko nuts. A sprinkling of sesame seeds added more flavour and texture.

I heard the dinner courses, which are priced at either $180+ and $280+, are much better. Dunno if that is true and I hope I will be able to find out soon.
