Why eat fish when you can eat pufferfish? Guenpin, the largest fugu restaurant chain in Japan has just opened up its first-ever overseas outlet in Singapore, Maxwell Chambers. Serving torafugu, a top notch tiger pufferfish, you can have it any way you wish. Be it sashimi, thick slices, karaage, sushi, grilled, hotpot or even porridge.
With over 30 years of experience, the puffer fish toxins are all taken care of in Japan by professionals, before importing them into Singapore.
Thick sliced pufferfish sashimi $32, it is chewy and has a rather intriguing texture, almost gelatinous-like. Taste wise, it’s quite bland so we recommend having it with the tangy ponzu sauce provided.
If you’re not in the mood for pufferfish overload, then choose from their snow crab selection. Sweet, plump and exceedingly fresh, the snow crab is well worth the money and time.
