The last time Janice Wong was on the show, she shared with us where she goes for char kway teow, this time, she recommends a place that’s refined yet whimsical and serves excellent Modern Japanese cuisine with a twist.
Since we can’t travel due to the pandemic, Chef Janice says that her most recent favourite finds are foods that bring a lot of comfort – it’s almost like holidaying through the tastebuds!
Akira Back is a restaurant that she has returned to 2-3 times now because of the clean, yet fun Japanese flavours. Named for the Michelin Starred man behind it, Korean-American chef Akira Back takes you on a refined yet approachable food journey, transporting you across the globe to Japan, with a little stopover in Korea and incorporating influences from around the world too.
So typically, you can have fresh sushi & sashimi, grilled dishes and everybody’s favourite – the signature tuna pizza which isn’t actually a pizza, but a perfectly thin and crisp tortilla topped with mayo and tuna, elevated with truffle oil and herbs.
So when she wants to get all her cravings in one place, Chef Janice heads to Akira Back for their delicious dishes made from fresh seasonal produce and artisanal ingredients, all served in a beautiful setting.
