Here are four F&B concepts to whet your appetite!
While it may bear no relation to Japan’s wholesale fish market, Tsukiji Fish Market Restaurant shares one thing in common with its famous Japanese compatriot—fresh seafood.
Located at Orchard Central’s rooftop garden, there are actually six different dining concepts under one roof—Tsukiji Fisherman, Ueki Omakase Restaurant, Ikezaki Yakiniku, Ebi-Zo Tempura, Tori-Sho Chicken Cuisine and Ramen Gallery. Take your pick and enjoy Japanese cuisine.
