Their dashi oden features a warm, earthy savoury salty sweet base of dashi stock flavoured with light soy sauce, and dark soy sauce.
This one-pot stew is then garnished with a medley of ingredients, including tender Japanese mountain yam chunks which are earthy sweet, and gelatinous konjac cubes which are sweet earthy.
There's the classic soft braised daikon radish chunks which are vegetal sweet salty from absorbing the broth, and bouncy fish cake strips which are sweet savoury with a light dense chew.
The more premium ingredients include bouncy hard-boiled egg which is eggy sweet, tightly packed chicken meat balls made with tender minced chicken meat and crunchy chicken cartilage with savoury salty sweet taste, and a garnish of crunchy sweet peas in a pod with vegetal sweet flavour.
Wholesome and healthy sharing stew, so yummy and comforting.
Invited tasting. Visits were before the circuit breaker in Singapore.

Head to this casual eatery in King Albert Park for comforting Japanese food. Use this deal to tuck into the off-menu, exclusive Yuzu Tsu Tori Don, and a Pokka drink of choice. Other noteworthy dishes include the Japanese Curry Rice ($15) served with a generous slab of perfectly crisp Hokkaido snow pork.

Handcrafted cream pie puff, daily baked, filled with signature Hokkaido milk cream.
Grab a box.
Really nice.


This was a limited time item for spring. The strawberry melon skin on top was crispy, almost cookie-like. Filled with strawberry filling made from Fukuoka’s amaou strawberries. Not very sweet, slightly tangy and very strawberry. I don’t usually enjoy sweet breads but I adored this.

I’m not a scone fan, but this was made of earl grey so I really couldn’t resist. Indeed it was absolutely delicious. Not as dry as other scones that I’ve tried. Carried the deep flavor of earl grey tea and a beautiful floral fragrance. Loved it.

I must say that their set meals are really affordable and the meat quality is not too bad for the price. If you don't want to have too much carbs, there are 3 sizes of rice available. Which is something I really like so there's no wastage if I don't finish it. All sets come with a bowl of rice, kimchi, miso soup and meat of your choice. I kinda like the beef steak set as it is soft and juicy! Imo, pork jowl is hard to chew, which is something I don't like.

The queue is never ending and the wait is long. So be ready to queue if you would like to try!

This was chewy and cheesy. Not bad, thou the amt of cheese inside was not as much as I had expected.

The two holes looked just like a piggy nose so cute! This was really good. The jap curry was on point and there was a dollop of creamy cheese right in the centre. I will buy this again.

The filling consisted of potato salad and spicy cod roe mayonnaise. Didn’t taste spicy to me at all, and the mentaiko tasted a bit too fishy for me.

Soft and fluffy bread with savory cheese. This was a bit too soft for me, like I was eating raw dough...

Chewy bun topped with teriyaki chicken, onions and cheese. Description label stated mayo, but didn’t really taste any. Nonetheless this was very enjoyable. Liked the chewy texture and abundant cheese.

Izakaya night with sparkling sake. Enjoyed the awesome great 20% off ala carte menu for picking up dinner! (No gst) Love the varied menu of starters, raw food, grilled/fried dishes, kushiyaki and even oden!
