Tokyo-Italian on Tras Street
Chef-owner Seita Nakahara is the pioneer of Tokyo-Italian cuisine in Singapore. It's not to be confused with fusion food: 'Tokyo-Italian' simply refers to authentic Italian dishes that are made from the best Japanese produce available. Chef Seita regularly travels to Japan to source for new ingredients, establishing close relationships with his suppliers. Which results in omakase sets ($128/$168/$208) that change seasonally depending on what arrives in his kitchen that day.
No two meals at Terra are exactly the same – even though you can request for your favourite dishes in advance. The sea urchin spaghetti and oven-baked Hokkaido scallop are mainstays, but if you enjoy an element of surprise, just leave it to Nakahara to decide. You may get a bruschetta topped with copious amounts of uni as a starter or wagyu porpettone à la Florentina as a main – how can you possibly say no to that?
