THE CHEF & RESTAURANT
Owner Chef Kazuhiro Hamamoto
brings over 20 years of extraordinary experience across Kyoto, Tokyo, and Singapore to his eponymous 12-seater Sushi Kappo Restaurant. Located in the historic Tanjong Pagar district, Chef Kazu brings his soulful approach to reimagining each season’s best ingredients in an intimate, elegant and inspiring setting.
In the spirit of harmony and connection, Chef Kazu sought out artisans across Japan to add a unique, personal touch to the Hamamoto experience. Dishes and drinks are served on custom ceramic lacquerware, handmade by an old friend, Kenji, using the ancient Totai Shiiki technique that fuses porcelain and lacquer. He also worked closely with 6th generation brewer, jumpei sato, from the iconic Tatenokawa Brewery from Yamagata prefecture, to create the house sake hamamoto 7 — a junmai daiginjo where the rice is polished down to 7% creating a delicious aroma, subtlety, and fullness.
