Lunch is the best time to visit this little hideout, especially when specially crafted set menus come nicely priced at $23.60.
Plus, word has it that two chefs who used to work in Kuriya Japanese Restaurant (a leading restaurant for Japanese cuisine in Singapore) now labour in Rakuichi's kitchen. Thus you would be in for a gastronomic experience here too!
There are three different lunch set meals to choose from. A basic set offers you quite a spread with fresh sashimi, grilled salmon, sesame tofu, soft shell crab, miso soup and rice. A bowl of salad is served to whet your appetite before the main course.
For sesame lovers out there, do not miss out on the winning sesame tofu which is distinctively infused with sesame flavours. To end off a nice meal, black sesame ice cream is served for dessert to top it all off!
Service at Rakuichi is prompt, although most seats are filled during lunch time. Rakuichi will be the perfect place to rest your feet and fill your belly as you head to town this weekend for the Great Singapore Sale.
