It was steamy... my taste buds were egg-cited and turned on...
For someone who loves his eggs, I was left speechless when this chawanmushi (steamed egg) from @unclekiisu
arrived on my table. At first glance, I was unsure of what this dish was, until the waitress mentioned the name of it. Mythical Chawanmushi its called, and mythical it was. Who would have thought that a simple steamed egg dish could become so... luxurious? The steamed egg is topped with a plump scallop sashimi that was covered with a huge amount of tobiko and ikura and the unicorn you see on top is made with dashi powder, squid ink, and is adorned in gold and truffle essence. I had limited time to take a photo of this dish as the unicorn started to melt after a few minutes and it dyed the chawanmushi black. Although an unusual sight to behold, that mesmerising moment of it melting proved to be an essential part of the mythical experience. It melting not only changed the visual composition of the dish, but it also enhanced the flavour of it to a very great extent. Looking at the generous amount of tobiko and ikura present here, you might think that this dish will be priced exorbitantly high. Well, you are very much mistaken. This dish is priced affordably at only $3.80! How awesome is that? Uncle Kiisu is located at Novena Square 2, #02
-65. Time to get some unicorn! 🦄
