terra Tokyo Italian delivers a unique style of Italian cuisine, inspired by Shokubunka (the honour of Japanese food culture) and the passion of Chef Seita Nakahara for Italian culinary traditions.
The unorthodox Japanese Italian restaurant is situated among the quaint shop houses on Tras Street. Terra by Seita creates wonderful seasonal cuisine where Japanese ingredients find their way into recognizable Italian dishes. Beyond the impeccable freshness and quality of the ingredients, the restaurant is dedicated to offering customers a different gastronomic experience each time they visit by keeping diners records unless there’s a special request for a repeat item. This fine-dining restaurant serving Tokyo-Italian cuisine is probably the most fluid one in Singapore.
Uni (Hokkaido sea urchin) Bruschetta, served with homemade preserved lemons.
The interior is a co-mingling of soft pastel blue colours, a garden wall, a flower brick wall, light wood, metal statues of cows and glass panels. The private areas are divided by pillars and each wall is plastered with terracotta bricks, live plants or silver cow heads that puts you right at ease.
Showing the diners ingredients before the meal heightened the anticipation. The service and presentation are top notches. Staff were warm and courteous but not overbearing.
