Cozy hole-in-the-wall modern Japanese restaurant and bar with a hidden entrance tucked in the back alley of Amoy Street. The Flying Squirrel offers a menu of Japanese-inspired cuisine ranging from handmade sushi, sashimi, lunch bento and chirashi don, to the unconventional series of Uni Shooters ($22) with yuzu ponzu sauce and sake, Truffled Ebi Fry ($15 for 5) comprising of prawns in truffle breadcrumbs, deep-fried and served with truffle mayonnaise, deep-fried Breaded Oyster ($16 for 5) with tonkatsu sauce, and Wagyu Burger ($38).
For more traditional Japanese fare, go for the crowd-favourite TFS Chirashi Don ($28) of assorted sashimi that includes a slab of anago eel on Japanese vinegar-ed rice drizzled with light, sweet sauce. Grab a counter seat and watch TFS’ chefs dole out these fresh cuts of seafood in the sharing Sashimi Platter ($62 for 16 pieces), Sushi Platter ($45 for ten), or TFS Signature Maki ($26 for six) in addition to the variety of maki rolls and handrolls.
On TFS’ lunch (and brunch) menu, apart from Sashimi Bento ($26), Summer Chirashi Bento ($25) and Unagi Donburi ($19), check out the weekday-only braised Veal Cheek Curry Rice Bento ($29).
