Having tried Unatoto in Tokyo🇯🇵 3-4 years ago, I feel that the food here exceeded my expectations and was undeniably yummy, especially when considering its price point.

For drinks pairing, their Yuzu/Mango/Strawberry Green Tea will be a great choice!

Being the oldest Fish Head Steamboat Restaurant in 🇸🇬, @nanhwachong1927 is unlike other contemporary gas-stove steamboat eatery; Every steamboat here is heartily prepared with ember-charcoal boiling soup, the freshest fish and quality ingredients with the original recipe passed on since 1927. They also serve a variety of yummy tze char dishes!

Here’s what my family and I indulged in…
👉Red Grouper Fish Head Steamboat
Include sole fish, tang oh, cabbage and yam
👉Signature Homemade Tofu
Seafood, fish and tofu paste. Coated with batter and fried to a golden brown
👉Signature Pork Belly
Crispy fried pork belly marinated with our
very own fermented tofu recipe
👉Cuttlefish Kang Kong
👉Oyster Omelette
👉Cereal Prawns
👉Prawn Paste Chicken Wings

Needless to say, you’ve to order their fish head steamboat for the complete experience and to recapture the nostalgia of families & friends bonding over a traditional steamboat meal. Catering to different budgets, you can choose either pomfret, grouper, snapper or song fish. The 1.5kg red grouper we had was really fresh, firm and flaky. The slurp-worthy soup was rich yet clean tasting, and also slightly smokey thanks to the burning charcoal.

All in all, we definitely enjoyed ourselves and will recommend you guys to have your CNY gathering here at @nanhwachong1927!

❗️Note that they will be CLOSED from CNY Eve to Chu 2. OPEN from Chu 3 onwards

Overall, this didn’t disappoint at all, except maybe for their baked beans which was below average quality. Paired well with the black pepper sauce, the grilled chicken chop had a nice charred taste and was succulent. Special mention goes to their fluffy fried bun which went perfectly well with the black pepper sauce.

Regrets for not trying this earlier… This is soo yummy in my tummy! The noodles texture is perfectly springy and managed to hold the thick tasty broth well when dipped into. Probably the only downside is that there isn’t much meat in the tsukemen broth.

Be prepared to queue during peak hours and weekends!

Highly rated on Google Reviews 4.7⭐️, @tomahawk.king is the perfect place for meat lovers to have their cravings satisfied! Other than serving their Signature Tomahawk Steak, OMOOKASE is their Japanese-inspired yakiniku concept that offers both the famous prime cuts of A5 Wagyu and also its prized-off cuts.

Here’s what we enjoyed…
👉🇯🇵 A5 Satsuma Wagyu Premium Meat Platter (200g) - SGD79.90 (U.P. SGD109)
Ribeye, Striploin, Tenderloin, Shortribs, Flank, Skirt
👉Tomahawk Steak UPSIZE 120 days Australian Grain Fed (1.1-1.2kg) - SGD138.90
Comes with 3 sides (cheesy fries, onion rings & garden salad) & 3 sauces

To my Muslim friends, this HALAL recommendation is for you. Thanks to the amazing marbling, each wagyu beef slice had a melt-in-your-mouth texture and went surprisingly well with the nacho cheese dip. As for the huge Tomahawk Steak, it had a good meat-to-fat ratio and was tasty too.

If you didn’t know, Shinsho Ramen serves a range of Pai-tan ramen that features a delicate chicken broth with rich flavours. The creamy consistency and deep savoury flavours of the Pai-tan soup is a result of boiling and simmering a large amount of whole chicken, pork bones and several kinds of seasonal vegetables for more than 8 hours! Having tried their Black Garlic, Spicy Red Miso and Special Black Truffle, we concluded that our top favourite is the latter. I must say the texture of the round noodles were great too!

Oden lovers should definitely give their Pai-tan oden a try! With up to 13 amazing ingredient options to soak up all the goodness of their delicious chicken broth, it will bound to warm you up during cool, wintery days!

Last but not the least, Shinsho’s Katsu was surprisingly impressive. The seasonal Premium Iberico Pork Loin Katsu features the plump, juicy cut that’s deep-fried to a crispy, golden brown perfection, available at only SGD18.90. Their Ebi & Kaki Oyster will be perfect for any seafood lover!

Since I’m in Bukit Merah area, decided to drop by to try some of their fresh artisanal bakes! Decided to get their pistachio croissant since I’m a big fan of pistachio and no regrets. Great flaky texture on the exterior and packed with flavour. Will definitely be back to try more bakes…
