Are you looking for a culinary experience that combines the best of Japanese and French cuisine? Look no further than Boyutei, the exciting collaboration between Michelin-starred restaurant Whitegrass and tea artisans Hvala. Located in the vibrant Ann Siang Hill area, Boyutei promises to be a match-made in culinary heaven.

The interiors of Boyutei are inspired by the Japanese kanji characters 忘忧亭, which means "a space where you can leave your worries behind." The muted and soft ambiance provides a stark contrast to the bustling bistros and bars that Ann Siang Hill is known for.

Head Chef Takuya Yamashita from Whitegrass has exclusively crafted the main menu food items, offering a fusion of Japanese and French flavors. From soups and salads to Japanese sandos, noodles, rice dishes, and sweet and savory crepes, Boyutei has something for every palate. As for desserts and beverages, Hvala brings its expertise to create a delightful selection that will satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth.

Let's take a closer look at some of the mouthwatering dishes at Boyutei:

Ebi Katsu Sando

One of my personal favorites, the Ebi Katsu Sando is an open-face Japanese sandwich featuring crunchy, golden-brown deep-fried prawns. The combination of flavors and textures, from the moist prawns to the tartar sauce and homemade chili sauce, is simply divine.

Prawn and Chicken Okonomiyaki

For those who miss the street-food flavors of Osaka, the Prawn and Chicken Okonomiyaki is a must-try. This dish combines the essence of a traditional Japanese pancake with the delicate crepe-like texture of a French crepe. The dashi-poached chicken and prawns hidden inside the crepe add a burst of flavors, while the tonkatsu sauce and mayonnaise complete the authentic taste.

Cha Soba

Cool down with the refreshing Cha Soba, a chilled noodle dish typically enjoyed during the hot summer in Japan. Handmade cha-infused buckwheat noodles, grilled unagi, and shredded kinshi tamago create a harmonious blend of flavors and textures that will transport you to Japan with every bite.

Boyutei Salad

For those who prefer a lighter option, the Boyutei Salad is a refreshing and healthy choice. Packed with mini tomatoes, pickled red cabbage, prawns, squid, and genmai for added crunchiness, this vibrant salad is topped with a hojicha dressing that adds a unique sweet and smoky taste.
