Adding on a local twist to this dish, this soft shell crab came with chili crab sauce, which was tangy and had the right level of spiciness. It was crispy and really tantalises your taste buds.⁣

Fun Fact: Did you know the Sakae Sushi mascot, the frog, was specially designed such that the legs looked like little gold ingots?⁣

Though they were the pioneer in conveyor belt sushi, they had kinda fell off the bandwagon and got overshadowed by the abundance of sushi restaurants popping up over the years. Which was why I was rather surprised when they announced that they had actually revamped their menu as of late last year. Starting off my meal with this assorted sashimi, no doubt it was served fresh but here's a special shoutout to the aka ebi. I was taken aback by the freshness and the sweetness coming from this shrimp which was specially selected as it was bigger and sweeter than their counterparts which was what you usually get from typical casual dining jap restaurants. I can assure you, this was no 'shrimple' affair ~!⁣

distinct roasted notes in their Signature Roasted Milk Tea, albeit being a little off in terms of the overall flavour. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Seemingly a norm in Japanese restaurants now, this Pitan Tofu is served chilled, with century egg paste drizzled over it, and the fish roe providing the dish with a contrasting bit of crunch!⁣

Teochew Oyster Omelette was kind of a disappointment. It was really soggy and lack the wokhei taste. Oysters were really huge though so I guess, you win some, you lose some aye? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Yakult Green Tea was disappointing, with both yakult and green tea standing out on its own instead of achieving a nice blend. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Came here for their lunch promo, with different bowls of donburi daily going at just $6.50! The daily special I got the other day was their Sambal Squid, consisting of deep fried anchovy, sous vide egg, greens, cilantro and really chewy squid with their homemade sambal glaze. They mean business with their sambal, which packs a fiery punch with every mouthful. Every bowl comes with miso soup which was refillable (yay!) overall pretty value for money given the price point! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Bliss is a bowl of spicy noodles all to myself while catching up with friends ☺️ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Always spotting a queue, I never thought much of the drinks here cause I heard it sells fruit teas and have never actually bothered to try it. That was until my friend who’s an avid fan pulled us along to try it and boy was it ahhhhmaze balls ✨ This Avocado Coconut really does live up to its reputation. Smooth and thick with a creamy texture, I guess you could say their drinks here are healthy because no sugar is added? I asked for 0% and it was still surprisingly sweet! I don’t mind having this every day because, avocado is kinda like the moisturiser for the inner parts of the body righttttttt? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Garlic Pizza felt like a dessert pizza because of how sweet the pizza was. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t overly sweet just that when you had your palate accustomed to the jjampong broth, the garlic pizza’s sweetness provides a very different contrast. It was so good my girlfriends and I wiped out the pizza despite having a jjampong each by ourselves. We were bursting by the end of the meal 😋 ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Back for their jjampong! Vongole was superb as usual, with the broth being really fresh and full of seafood sweetness. They were really generous with their clams and mussels, I actually can’t finish all of them 😂
