Taking its name from two Japanese words – waku meaning to arise, and ghin meaning silver, in honour of Tetsuya Wakuda’s signature colour – Waku Ghin is the Japanese-born chef’s smart and stylish restaurant in the plush Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore.
The 25-cover space is an intimate affair, split into four private rooms of differing styles, varying from a muted grey-and-white-walled room with carpets to a warmer, wooden-floored bar-style seating area, each with a private chef delivering a 10-course dégustation menu.
Dishes are prepared in front of diners, including the restaurant’s Tasmanian grass-fed beef, seared quickly to order, and the restaurant’s peerless seafood, such as lobster, abalone and its signature dish of marinated botan ebi, uni and oscietra caviar. Dessert is given equal billing, with guests invited to retire to a separate room following the eighth course for some sweet treats, including the delectable Ghin cheese cake.
