UE Square Izakaya’s Japanese Chef Passes Away After Suffering Brain Haemorrhage At The Gym
Chef Hideyuki Tanaka was due to sign a contract to open his own restaurant just two days after his untimely death.
Mobomoga is an under-the-radar izakaya at UE Square. Popular with Japanese expats and F&B industry insiders, it offers an extensive selection of sake labels paired with tasty, unfussy bar grub. Since late 2019, its kitchen was helmed by Japanese executive chef Hideyuki Tanaka, who suddenly passed away today (Apr 20) following a brain haemorrhage. He was 40.
