Local music act Jack & Rai, and Jack’s wife Angelina, have just opened a new Japanese restaurant The Flying Squirrel on Amoy Street.

Though hidden away on a side alley, the cozy space is already packed with diners nightly. On the menu, find a selection of fusion Japanese bites such as soba pasta ($16), featuring tomato-sauced noodles and breaded fried shrimp, as well as the TFS Signature Maki ($20), a colorful California roll covered with a host of different toppings including ikura (salmon roe), eel, scallop and shrimp with uni.

There are also more traditional offerings like cha soba ($12), a sashimi platter ($42), and salmon and ikura chirashi ($13). At lunch, affordable bento sets including the Ebi Fry bento ($17) with breaded fried shrimp, curry sauce and rice are available. Wash the food down with Tea Forte teas ($5), Papa Palheta coffee (from $3.80) and Australian Tatty Road wines ($12/glass, $55/bottle).
