If you’re at Shingen by any chance, just give their ramen a try, skip the fried rice as there’s nothing special about it. ⁣

Missing this bowl of piping hot ramen amidst the cold winter weather back in Hokkaido. Utterly flavourful broth, qq ramen and, tender slices of char siew, need I go on?

Not sure if it’s one time off, but I felt that the chicken chop standards have dropped and it wasn’t as juicy and succulent as it used to be. The coleslaw and fries though, is still as good as I remembered it to be. Do hope this is just one time off 😭 ⁣⁣

Fried to a crispy golden brown, this chicken cutlet was so crispy I was afraid my plastic utensils were gonna break every time I try to pull them apart into smaller pieces. Full of flavour, this plate of cutlet rice was definitely worth the price tag, with rice and chilli that tastes like those of chicken rice. ⁣

Putting my Burpple Beyond to good use again by getting this Hawaiian Bowl for dessert after a satisfying bowl of fish soup for lunch. I’m feeling healthy already! Forming the base is their acai, followed by an assortment of fruits (grape, banana, strawberry, blueberry, passionfruit), granola, coconut flakes and various other crunch. Finally, topped it off with a sauce of your choice. I opt for the honey, which serves as a sweetness booster. I’m no expert on acai bowls, they all taste the same to me (they all taste healthy lmao), but I would get this again for the 1 - 1 ! ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Quite possibly the dish that made this stall famous, their Salted Egg Pork Ribs was pretty amazing! Utterly drenched in sauce, my pork ribs were tender and savoury, which makes for a good pairing with the rice. While there was a hint of spice in the sauce, it wasn’t enough to make you reach out for water. Top it up with a sunny side up to complete the meal! ⁣

Jjam Pong here has a slight charred taste to it and not exactly to my liking. Left half the bowl intact and ate their banchan instead 😪 ⁣⁣

Finally got down to trying this tantalising bowl of Nagoya Maze Soba. A decent bowl of springy noodles along with a dash of shallots, minced meat, onsen egg, vinegar, which when mixed up together, turns out to be a decent bowl of soba well worth the price! My only qualm is that if you eat slow, the noodles all cloy up into a lump. Have heard high praises for their chashu, so that shall be the next bowl I'm going to conquer the next time I'm here! ⁣⁣

Might have been a little overrated, as I felt that there was nothing much to shout about for their drink. This Valrhona 100% Cocoa Milk was essentially just chocolate milk that’s more fragrant and less sweet 🤷🏼‍♀️⁣⁣

This Brown Sugar Soy Milk Tea With White Pearl is just, no. ⁣Boba should just be unhealthy, no soy milk please 🤢⁣

Got myself a hot bowl of Shoyu Hamaguri Soup with sous vide chashu, black truffle sauce, spring onions, porcini mushroom sauce and leek. While it all sounds very posh, what with the truffle and porcini mushroom, I must say this bowl is way too salty for me. The sodium seemed to have overpowered all flavours in the ramen since I couldn’t taste any sweetness from the clam. Couldn’t help myself from reaching out for the ice cold tea to quench my thirst.⁣⁣

Finally got my lazy ass to visit Konjiki, the famous shellfish broth ramen from Japan which has been awarded a Michelin Star.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
To start off the meal, every diner is offered a bowl of complimentary Fukugawa Meshi (clam rice). This small portion of clam rice was sweet and tasty, and definitely woke up my dormant stomach for the upcoming bowls of ramen.⁣
