A Former Snowboarder Turned Iron Chef?

A Former Snowboarder Turned Iron Chef?

In the mood for inventive Japanese cuisine? Check out Akira Back, one of the recent openings at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. Award-wining Chef Back was born in Korea and raised in Colorado. Having worked as a part time chef to supplement his income while pursuing his dream as a professional snowboarder, he realised he found the same thrill in the kitchen as on the slopes. He went on to trained under some of the world’s best and opened an upscale restaurant in Las Vegas to rave reviews. He has since appeared on Iron Chef America against celebrity chef Bobby Flay and various other Food Network programs. 

The dining room at Akira Back is lush and soothing. One of the first things that strike you is the artwork both on the walls and on the plates! It sets the tone for a creative meal. The Tuna Pizza with ponzu mayo & truffle oil is crisp, light and amazing. The 48 hour braised short rib was impressive, and we also enjoyed the Ji-dori Chicken with truffle potato puree & teriyaki. We’ll be back!
