A traditional Japanese teppanyaki restaurant where the cuisine is cooked fresh in front of the diners, MIZU presents a multi-sensory dining experience of authentic dishes prepared using only the freshest ingredients, locally sourced and high quality produce.
We are highly anticipating dining at MIZU. My dining partner and I had both heard good things about the newly opened restaurant, and were looking forward to teppanyaki theatrics. Trust me when I say, MIZU does not disappoint.
Upon arrival at MIZU, the staff immediately seat you and describe the various menu options. MIZU is a quaint venue with space for only 16 guests, but the dining setting does not feel cramped. The night we dine at MIZU, our set menu is called “A Tale of Water and Fire.” The menu features a good array of choices and we start the experience with an appetizer of seared scallop, Yuzu Zeat, cucumber julienne and lemon sauce. The food is extremely tasty, and followed by Merou en Papillote - a small bite of sea bass, edamame, mushroom and Wakame seaweed. The sea bass is as soft as butter and full of flavor.
The Main Course at MIZU consists of Miso Soup, Black Tiger Prawn Fried Rice and MB 4+ Angus Striploin 100g. It should be noted that the taste of the food is extremely authentic. The Miso Soup has the perfect balance of umami flavor while the Black Tiger Prawn Fried Rice is smoky with a chewy texture - the rice dish, in my opinion, is perfection, and my overall favorite dish of the night.
We are treated to the chef’s theatrical cooking skills as he’s preparing the MB 4+ Angus Striploin 100g, and it’s the perfect time to take photos and videos as there’s lots of utensil juggling to accompany the sound of the sizzling flames. The Angus Striploin is served with morning glory, yellow baby corn, whipped garlic mash, garlic onion soy, Yuzu Ponzu, spicy bean sauce and assorted sautéed seasonal vegetables. It’s absolutely delicious. The Angus Striploin is melt-in-your-mouth tender and the Yuzu Ponzu sauce really elevates the flavor. Dessert is a vanilla ice cream flambe served with seasonal tropical fruits.
Dining at MIZU is completely satisfying. The restaurant’s approach to traditional Japanese teppanyaki is authentic, and there are loads of surprises thrown into the dining experience, which means you definitely need to go and try MIZU for yourself.
