While we can’t travel to Japan (or anywhere else, really) to take in views of the cherry blossoms while tucking into a bento box, we can still take our tastebuds on a journey to J-town. From fresh cuts of seafood to warm bowls of ramen, these restaurants bring a taste of Japan to your doorstep with takeout and delivery options.

Can’t get a seat at Waku Ghin? Not to worry, the Gourmet Takeaway platform by Marina Bay Sands lets you bring home a meal from this acclaimed Japanese restaurant by chef Tetsuya Wakuda – no reservations required. The curated menu features a salad with seasonal asparagus, topped with plump Canadian lobster ($89), alongside futomaki sushi ($65) rolled with abalone slow-steamed for over eight hours in sake, and Japanese-style curry served with premium Ohmi wagyu beef slices ($58). Desserts are worth a spot in your check-out basket too. Basque cheesecake ($38) feels light yet creamy, while the Frasier ($30) comes assembled with hand-picked strawberries, layered with pistachio vanilla chantilly for a timeless treat.

Omoté

Restaurants Japanese Bishan

Omoté is typically crowded with hungry diners looking to grab a bowl of its affordable chirashi don. The signature Omoté-chirashi don ($17.90) comes with a generous serving of diced seafood atop tangy sushi rice. It’s good as is, but even better when jazzed up with fancy trimmings – premium uni, plump scallops, and other fresh ingredients imported from Japan. But now, you get to skip the lines – just ring up the restaurant to place your orders and swing by to collect, or browse its newly launched delivery menu.

Lucky Cat

Restaurants Vegetarian Hougang

While Lucky Cat bills itself as a “fusion meatless” diner, the menu leans more Japanese. The neighbourhood eatery puts a plant-based spin on the hearty cuisine to create healthier creations that don’t taste, or look, too far from the real deal. You'll find sushi made with konjac salmon; Tofunagi Maki ($12), which uses tofu, fried then glazed with a salty-sweet marinade, to create a rice roll filled with crunch and flavour; and somen served with yuzu ponzu broth. More familiar is the Japanese curry katsu don, where slick curry with chunks of potato and carrot comes ladled over fluffy rice and a meaty soy patty.

Restaurants Japanese River Valley

Jypsy puts a fun spin on the usual Japanese grub. Here, the food comes inspired by the Land of the Rising Sun, sprinkled with local touches to make for hearty creations that feel familiar yet novel. The Udon Goreng ($20.88) is a prime example: the noodle dish, reminiscent of mie goreng, comes with chewy strands coated in homemade chunky chilli oil and spice-scented sauce. Other convenient one-bowl meals feature katsu curry rice with Kagoshima pork cutlet ($23.02), fried rice cooked with wagyu beef drippings ($28.37), and more.

The tanuki (raccoon dog) is a mischievous animal in Japanese folklore, and the people at Tanuki Raw have distilled the creature’s playful spirit into its modern rice bowls.
