Sarah booked our lunch on this Sunday at Taiji Katsu, a private home dining experience. 
Seatings are limited so you do have to book through their facebook.  The private home of Glen and Paul caters for lunch as well as dinner and of course private events too.

Yes, food prepared on the spot when you arrive, how freshly cook is that?

Of course while waiting, busybody me got to look at their collection of books...thumbs up for men who reads and cooks as well!

The servings are generous  and delicious.

All-in-one Katsu Don comprising of prawns, chicken katsu and pork katsu with eggplant, lotus root and mushroom.  All these goodies are crispy yet not oily and succulent juicy inside. I especially love the eggplant, it was so creamy though crispy on the outside. .

Feeling at home...loved the space...

Since we were around the area, we decided to try another private eatery in another block building..

  1. Wow! How nice of you to bake the 2 cakes for your nephew and niece. I am sure they love to the moon & back!

    I like that idea of the chef cooking on the spot at their home. I must visit!

    1. I also like the idea...sharing homecooked food for those too busy with work etc.

  2. Hi Elaine, your cakes look very nice. Home cooked is still the best. Thanks for dropping by my humble blog, glad that you still remember me . :)) After on hiatus for more than a year, I decided to start blogging again.

    Have a nice day, regards.

    1. Hi Amelia,
      Looking forward to read your posts.
