I visited Dozo for the first time for my birthday.
At Dozo, they serve only degustation set menus, which consists of 7 courses for dinner ($59.80++), and 6 courses for lunch ($39.80).
All courses comes with several options, so you’ll find something you like.
Free flow of fried/ baked spaghetti sticks to munch on
Complimentary, to cleanse our palate, before the meal
Amuse bouche was fixed
Cold dish – King Crab Claw Salad drizzled with Sesame Vinaigrette
Cold dish – Air flown seasonal sashimi
Side dish – tempura battered soft shell crab on galette of mash
Side dish – Gratinated escargots topped with yuzu butter
Soup – Crab Bisque cappuccino style
We both had this and it was good.
Main course – Beef Tenderloin on ‘Pu Ye’ and granite hot stone
My partner orderd this and it was spectacular! Not your usual steak, but something different. And also, you are supposed to control the doneness yourself – place the whole leaf away from to stone to stop the cooking.
Main course: Baked Atlantic cod fillet
I chose the cod. It was good! As good as the beef. One of the best cod I’ve tried, comparing with other restaurants. But I can’t be too sure, as I don’t order cod often.
There was a croquette below the cod
Drink – dozo’s signature mocktail: refreshing mix of apple, passion fruit & mint
Drink – Iced grapefruit glory: a strong citrus drink that is helpful for digestion
Dessert – Dozo’s freshly baked warm chocolate cake served with ice cream
Mine. I loved it! I love chocolate lava cake.
Dessert – Japanese ‘mua-chi’ served with green tea ice cream
The green tea ice cream was too hard. It’s probably prescopped and frozen in the pan so it was like rock hard. The pink powder on top fizzes in your mouth, like the kind of sweets we used to have when we were younger! The thing that resembled leeches was red bean paste. This was quite good!
The service at Dozo was impeccable. When making reservations, they will ask you if you’re here for a special occasion. As it was my birthday, they presented me a cake! The cake wasn’t anything special but the gesture was sweet.
Ambiance: 9.5/10 (lacking a nice view)
Overall: it was a very enjoyable experience to dine there. I would definitely return again! This meal was really worth the money. Good ambiance, good service, and good food 🙂
