Ordered the Caramel Milk Tea with 1 topping ($4.90)- Tea had a mild caramel taste. Totally not sweet which was good as I chose 0% sweetness. The white pearl were chewy, firm and sweet. Overall all was good except that the caramel could be more prominent.

I also ordered the mushroom combo, extra spicy + seaweed flavour ($3.90 + $0.50). [There are 6 flavours available; cheese, seaweed, spicy Mexico, garlic seafood, sour plum and ma la.] The mushroom was deep fried to perfection. Batter was light and crispy and taste was just nice, slightly spicy and umami. Overall really good.

Each set consists of a main, salad, soup, ebi mentaiyaki/ cold tofu and a drink.

The salad was good. It was served chilled and drizzled with roasted sesame sauce. Soup on the other hand tasted like chinese vegetables soup. The ebi mentaiyaki was my favourite among everything. Fresh, sweet with a slight charred taste that complimented well with the creamy savoury mentaiko sauce.

For my main I chose the Mentaiyaiki Tamago Kaisendon which consisted of cubed seafood on a bed of rice with slices of tamago drizzled with mentaiko sauce and a slice of seaweed. The seafood was not as firm as I prefer and was slightly mushy but temperature was chilled enough. Seafood was also lightly seasoned, luckily there was the wakame, ikura and tobiko. Mentaiyaki tamago on the other hand was good. Cold, sweet and savoury. Interestingly there are 4 ways to have your don; eat it on its own, mix it with chilli powder and mayonnaise, blend it with soup, or wrap the sashimi with their special cut nori seaweed.

Without using burpple this a la carte dish would cost $18.90.

So we arrived at the shop at around 10.30am and they were...... CLOSED or so the sign hanging on the door showed. Just a small error on their part.

Anyway I ordered the Messy Truffle Burger ($16)- beef, truffle sauce, cheese, fries. Beef was cooked slightly under and the truffle sauce tasted quite prominent on it own. However, when eaten together, the truffle taste was negligible. A friend of mine said it tasted like Mcdonald's cheese burger. A slightly better version of it.

Pulled Pork Burger ($10)- relish mayo, onions, smoked cheddar, fries. Had a prominent porky taste in a good way. Burger tasted good when eaten together. Separately the pork lacked seasoning, same with my beef patty.

Truffle Pasta ($14)- shimeji, shiitake, truffle cream, pecorino. Taste of truffle was present but not strong and somehow the sauce kinda lack salt in our opinion. Pasta was well cook though.

Overall a nice place to hang out during the hot sunny weather as it is air conditioned. There's also free flavoured water available which you can help yourself.

Ordered the Milky Lollies Soft Serve which is basically white rabbit candy in ice cream form topped with pearls.

Ice cream was really good, true to the flavour but it did melt a little fast. The chewy pearls on the other hand was underwhelming. It was bland and did not pair well with the ice cream.

Also waited around 10 minutes for the ice cream as the machine churns out ice cream with a long interval wait. But I won't comment further as they are not focused on selling ice cream.

Tamago Mentai Chirashi Don ($18.80). A two variant bowl of complementing torched mentaiko on sweet egg omelette slices finished with an assortment of marinated diced seafood on sushi rice.
Mentaiko was good and creamy. Egg was sweet and chilled. Marinated seafood was firm, crunchy, well seasoned and at an optimum temperature. Really good.

I also added the lunch premium set (+$8) which consisted of miso soup, salad, sashimi and chawamushi. Miso soup was the usual which you get from everywhere. Salad was good. It was paired with a citrus dressing. Sashimi was ok, it would have been better if it was more chilled. Chawamushi was average. There was a crabstick and a slice of mushroom inside.

My friend had the Mount Omote Chirashi Don ($28.80). A massive mountain of an assortment of marinated diced seafood on a tower of sushi rice.
The marinated seafood on this don wasn't as chilled as mine. Most probably because of the fact that it takes a longer time to construct this don. This made it felt like the sashimi wasn't as good as the other don.

Overall both don were really filling and we didn't finish the rice. Maybe because we added the set(?) Anyway it was good and worth the money. Also I love their new menu. There are lots of fun elements and lots of items to choose.

Roast beef with unagi hitsumabushi ($29.50 for medium $39.50 for large). Roast beef is served medium rare and cold(as informed by the waiter). It was tasty, tender and tasted of black pepper which went well with the sweet unagi sauce. The unagi which is the main star of the shop was also equally excellent. The outer layer was crispy while the inside was soft and it was well flavoured. The soup provided was good, well seasoned and went well with the rice to give you a hearty porridge. However I still preferred my dish the way it was, with the soup separated.

With everything being so delicious, the broiled unagi which my friend ordered was really disappointing. It was bland and did not have much texture besides the softness of the meat and the countless soft bones in the meat. It was also chewier than the grilled unagi.

Overall just stick to the usual grilled unagi, try the roast beef and avoid the broiled unagi and you'll leave satisfied! Also they served green tea FOC!

The color of the milk tea comes from charcoal. So interesting!

I read some reviews and they said should definitely get 30% sweetness or less. My friend asked for 20% and they said ok so we had 20% sweetness with less ice.

Tea taste is strong and it's not as milky or fragrant as I prefer. Actually I'm not really sure how the charcoal plays a part in the taste. I think it's more for the aesthetic of the drink. Sweetness wise I regretted not choosing a sweeter option as the tea was not sweet enough for me. Pearls added were sweet and not as chewy as other bubble tea store like Koi, Gongcha, Liho. Also for an additional $0.60 I expected a little more.

Overall the cup is worth buying if you have nothing better to spend on, for the looks of it. However if you planning to buy it for its taste, it's definitely not worth it.

I ordered 嗨黑奶茶 Hi Tea Black Milk Tea (R) $2.90. Tea was fragrant with hints of floral notes. Ordered less sweet which was 50% and felt that it was a little too sweet for me, maybe 25% would be just nice. Overall milk tea was good and slightly different from the usual milk tea.

Came here for the skewers but was blown away by the milk tea instead.

The Tiger Milk Tea ($2.80) was good. Tea was smooth and not too milky. Pearls were chewy and just the right consistency. I'm glad that the aunty recommended the drink. For the price I would say it's good.

Honestly if I didn't order the milk tea I would have left feeling meh. I tried both chicken and lamb skewer. Chicken was well cooked (not too dry) but seasoning wise I felt it was quite lacking. Just tasted cumin and the flavour of the meat. Personally felt that it could use more salt and spices. Same goes for the lamb. The lamb was a little tough and taste of seasoning was quite mild. Not sure if it's meant to be like this though.

Macaroni Tossed in Yummy Triple Cheese Sauce, Topped with Crispy Breadcrumbs Baked till Golden Brown.I love the fact that the sauce was a good consistency. Thick, Creamy, Velvety and Cheesy. Pasta was al dente. Overall I give it a 7/10.

Another dish worth trying is the "Krusty Krab" Benedict ($19.50). Golden Crabcake Pillow with Chipotle Aioli, Crispy Bacon, Grilled Asparagus, Poached Eggs & Hollandaise Sauce on Toasted Brioche Bread with Side of Baby Green Salad. Spicy Sweet Crabcake, Crispy on the Outside and Soft in the Inside accompanied with the Creamy Buttery Hollandaise Sauce and Toasted Bread was a perfect combination. Overall I give this dish 8/10.

A dish you should stay away from is the Truffle Fries ($9.50 for small). Fries were like Soggy(?) Maybe cause they are Handcut. Truffle taste was like not present while the taste of Garlic was strong. Feel like they should rename it to Garlic Fries instead. Overall I give it a 4/10.

250g Bone in Pork Chop, Cajun Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables, Mustard Brown Sauce. Pork chop was nicely seasoned and well cooked. Every bite of the meat was flavourful and not too tough. Potatoes was mildly flavoured. Roasted vegetables consisted of carrots and zucchini. Carrots were crunchy and the zucchini was tender. Mustard Brown sauce tasted similar to black pepper sauce. Overall really like this dish and would recommend it.

I also ordered the Crispy Battered Mushroom ($10) served with Garlic Aioli and Truffle Mushroom Alfedo Pasta ($20).

The batter of the mushroom were crispy throughout and didn't turn soggy. Mushrooms were unseasoned, only giving off its natural umaminess. The aioli somehow tasted more like mayonnaise to me. Overall found this dish so-so.

Pasta was Linguine Pasta cooked in Truffle Mushroom Cream Sauce with Medley Mushroom, Onsen Egg, Shaved Parmesan. Pasta was slightly on the harder side which I prefer. Mushroom was ok. Truffle was detectable. The dish gave me a home-y feel because of the rich, warm creamy sauce. However it became a little overwhelming at the end because of the creaminess. Overall I think it would be better to share this dish.

Went to 49 seats for SUPPER! Got the Smoked Duck Aglio Olio($14.90) for myself.

In the menu there's this option where you can add "level 49 spicy". Went to the counter and asked how spicy it was and the reply I got was that it was spicy till your lips would SWELL(around 5 tsp of CHILLI PADI 🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶). So they offered me another alternative which was to request for 'more spicy' which I agreed since I love spicy food.

The aglio olio pasta came, linguine was cooked al dente and the mushroom and duck was good. Spicy wise, I would say it's spicier than McSpicy but still manageable for me. It was a good thing I didn't request for the level 49 spicy, if not I might not have been able to finish it.

(Tip: Come after 10pm for supper promo. $10 nett for all pasta cause there's no gst and service charge.)
