Sen Of Japan, located at Marina Bay Sands Shoppe Mall, prides itself as a modern Japanese Restaurant and Bar, serving traditional Japanese cuisine with a contemporary touch. 

I visited Sen of Japan during one of the weekdays for dinner. Reservations are always recommended as they tend to be full, even for non-peak days. As me and my partner was famished by that time, we ordered quite a few dishes, which coincides with the Amex Platinum Love Dining Privileges, as we need to order 2 main courses to enjoy the 50% off.

We started off with the Salmon Carpaccio, sashimi grade salmon slices, plated beautifully, served with spicy saikyo miso dressing. The Carpaccio is refreshing and tasty, with the spicy miso dressing adding a layer of depth of flavour to the fish. 

The next to arrive is the Salmon Aburi Maki, made to order sushi maki, stuffed with Avocado, Cucumber, Crispy Ebi  Tempura, topped with generous slices of sashimi grade salmon, flame torched, followed by a wallop of home-made special cheese sauce before a generous shower of tobiko. The maki was delicious, confusing to a few, but definitely not me, multiple layers of flavour, great way to start off my dinner.

We decided to keep the Maki as our main source of carbs. Hence we order a few more carbless dishes to share, such as the recommended Black Cod Soy, Hamachi Kama (Cheek) and being a eel lover myself, Anago Tempura. 

The Anago Tempura is light, not oily, the fish a little tad sweet, which is expected of a shoyu marinated eel. The tobiko topping adds an additional pop/crunch to the dish as you bite into it, after dipping into the warm tempura sauce. 

The Soy Black Cod is amazing, still a little tad sweet to me, which my partner subsequently said that I complain that everything is too sweet for me. The black cod is simply amazing, fresh and juicy, flaky and succulent, grilled to perfection with a slight char. I love it. Actually, I could just have this and a bowl of white rice. It's just that good. 

After the Soy Black Cod, the Hamachi Kama, which is not bad, but just does not shine out. It is juicy, crispy skin, but tasted just alright. I would have skipped this for another serving of cod. 

For desserts, we ordered the Yuzu Cheesecake. It looked beautiful, yes, thats the only compliment. It tasted flat, lack of a yuzu punch, the texture was too gelatinous and I felt that it should be called a kueh cake instead. Just underwhelming way to end the meal. 

Overall, it was a nice meal, and worthwhile with the Amex Love Dining Privileges, looking forward to return in a few months time when I have a black cod craving. It was approx $80-90 for 2 pax for this meal.
