Back in 2015, we chanced upon the eponymous restaurant of celebrity Chef Akira Back at the penthouse of MD Place in Jakarta.
Smitten by it, we were excited when it opened in the Lion City.
Back was a former professional snowboarder
turned chef, famed for reinventing the traditional Japanese cuisine playbook; melding
flavours from different cultures while paying homage to his American roots and
Korean heritage. He debuted the Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant at Bellagio Casino
& Resort and was named “Best Chef In Las Vegas” by Las Vegas Weekly before
earning one Michelin-star at his DOSA restaurant in South Korea.
