First time here! Tried the Aburiya bowl and the Hokkaido soft serve. Got to say that the Hokkaido soft serve was a dream that transported me back to japan, with the Ballance of creaminess and milkiness, paired with some biscuits at the end of the cone for an extra crunch. Got to give it to the uniqueness of how the Wagyu beef was thinly cut and roasted, a great accompaniment with the glaze of the rice. Truly elevated the tastes! Very convenient to the mrt too :) loved it here.

A tad difficult to cut without leaving a big mess but Daizu Cafe’s Fuji Kori Amann ($12) was a lovely dessert to share and certainly one for the matcha fans. Covered in a blanket of earthy matcha powder, the sizable scoop of cool vanilla ice cream was well-matched with the warm pastry - delivering that contrast and also helping to soften a tinge of the crisp exterior. Not overly sweet, the kouign amann was also perfectly flaky. The crushed pistachio were a nice touch, giving that crunch and nutty flavour as well.

Always in the mood for mentaiko, I just had to order Daizu Cafe’s Mentaiko Fries ($12) which came drizzled with a hearty amount of savoury sauce and crowned with furikake and bonito flakes. The toppings giving the plate an umami boost and providing extra textures. Torched for good measure, the smoky aroma adding to the whole appeal as well. Crisp and creamy, the house speciality shoestring fries are best shared amongst 2-3 pax as it does get a bit cloying and leans towards the salty side. But of course, do eat it while it is hot and there is plenty of sauce to go around for the fries hidden beneath.

This ramen tastes different from other ramen places, but in a good way! It has the right balance of umami and spice. I’m really glad to have tried this place out.

Can’t get over how cute this is🐲🐉 Loved the various dimensions from the crunchy prawn tempura to the tender grilled unagi!

This roll features cheddar wrapped in seared salmon. Mentaiko fans will be pleased to hear about the generosity of mentaiko given🤩 Enjoyed this roll too! But compared to the other magical roll, this was quite one dimensional.

On a nice Sunday I came here to try the Aburiya burger! It doesn’t just pride itself for its mains, but also the assortment of desserts here which has distinct tastes of Japan. The Aburiya burger was a fusion Japanese x western twist, with guacamole paired with tamago and sliced A4 Wagyu beef. The burst of flavour in each mouth was an accompaniment of juiciness and a tinge of sweetness, really lovely!

Went there for a casual date after work.

We ordered the truffle beef bowl and the rustic beef stew. The beef was really tender in both dishes and the onsen egg in the truffle beef both helped to add another texture to the whole dish. Really delicious! The staff even gave complimentary apple salads with the dishes! We also ordered soy chicken and truffle fries to share. The soy chicken was tender and juicy!

The kombuchas were great as well. Personally preferred the Mountain Oolong kombucha more.

Overall great experience and will highly recommend to those working in the area! Generous servings and really good service from the staff!

Pork Loin Hobayaki Zen - $25.90
YAYOI is known for their tasty teishoku, even Japanese frequently dine in there! They recently launched new menu and the Hobayaki Zen is one of top picks. Magnolia leaf grilled with wasabi miso sauce and meat of your choice (Chicken Steak, Scallops, Salmon, Seafood or Pork Loin). It comes with rice set that includes tempura and sashimi. I changed to multigrain rice and added onsen egg by the side (additional cost). The wasabi miso is really shiok, goes very well with meat and seafood, flavourful with a kick!
Yayoi Singapore

Tempura were fresh and crispy - love the lightweight batter. As usual, mushrooms are my favourite although I do enjoy the prawn as well. Paid +$1 for the udon as I like how soup and noodles “clears” the oil in my mouth after eating the tempura. Serving for the udon can be bigger though.

Damage: $16.90

Best soup ever! Creamy and delicious and warm. Love the apple juice too, tastes like cloudy apple juice from UK.
