I have slight mixed feelings about this dish. While I loved that it was a brave take on fusion food, I found that the ramen was a bit soggy from the buah keluak sauce which did not combine with the noodles as well as I would’ve liked. Pork balls tasted like they came out from the fridge as well. Nevertheless, still a great and innovative fusion dish and worth a try!

This tasted reminiscent of a carbonara. I liked how the sauce was creamy yet light.

TGIF! Let's have this pretty soft serve to start the weekend! 🎉
.
Originating from Kagawa Perfecture in the Southern part of Japan, these soft serves were traditionally served at wedding parties for everyone to celebrate during the joyous occasion.
.
This one from Watanabe Coffee, made from Hokkaido milk, was milky yet surprisingly refreshing. Also known as a "good luck soft serve", it was once said that dreams will come true after eating this oiri soft serve🍦. I think I should have this just before buying Toto. Haha! 😆

Nestled within @square2sg at Novena, @unclekiisu is a quirky restaurant that serves up modern Asian fusion food with both Japanese and Peranakan influence. Featured are the small bites we had.

An example of a hit and a miss. The chawanmushi might look gimmicky but it didn’t disappoint me in terms of flavour and mouthfeel. I also liked how there was a slight truffle fragrance in it which unlocked another level of “shiok” for me. But on the other hand, I was actually quite disappointed with their mentaiko cheese bruschetta. The fried youtiao was soggy and had this funky taste when slathered with their sauce. It’s probably just my tastebuds not being easily satisfied 🤭...

The new collaboration with @roastparadise welcomes an expanded menu with their signature char siew and sio bak, on top of the popular dishes from izy. Psst.. there are introducing more new creations, watch this space!

I'm a regular here for their uni don and hotate don, and would also try one off-menu dish created by Chef Momo. This is otoro slightly aburied to release some of the fats, drizzled with a bright citrus oil and topped with ikura.

But I was bored of Sushi Express. So Google led me to this venue.
-
Prices were definitely pricier than Sushi Express but quality was way better. We were kinda hungry so we just picked off random plates once we were seated down.
-
Every piece of sushi was fresh and yummy. No skimping on the ingredients. Or perhaps the heavy flavours suited me very well. My personal favourites were the Aburi Salmon and Egg Mayo.
-
Just plan your orders and the bill will be fine. She also said conveyor belt sushi is therapeutic. Anyone feels the same?
-
$23 per pax.

A bit late to the game, Tenjin is the latest Tendon specialty shop to have opened way after the wave of such shops and the trend having passed for quite some time. Moving into space which belonged to the now-defunct Circa 1912, Tenjin is situated in between Indigo Blue Kitchen and Kausmo at Shaw Centre.

The Toku-jo is the Premium bowl here, consisting of Tempura pieces such as Anago, Crab Leg, Prawn, Fish, Vegetables and Freedom Range Egg, all the Tendons here come with Miso Soup and Kyabetsu Salad by the side, and an option to choose between Spicy Tare or Regular Tare for the choice of sauce. Going for the Tempura pieces, we liked how the Tempura pieces were pretty well-executed; the seafood being fresh with its moisture locked in while being encased in a light and airy Tempura batter that is crisp and not particularly greasy. The various vegetables such as the pumpkin, Shiso Leaf, and eggplant provided various textures to the bowl; the pumpkin and eggplant maintained a soft texture, while the Shiso Leaf was light and crisp — the Shiitake Mushroom also adding a bouncy bite within the light and crisp batter. Hidden beneath all the condiments, the Freedom Range Egg is also encased in the same batter — a poke from the chopstick sees the yolk eagerly bursting out, providing the fluffy, short-grain rice with a silkier touch; the rice comes drizzled with the Regular Tare (which we opted) that carried a sweet-savoury note that was not excessive or pudding at the bottom of the bowl. A pretty well-executed Tendon here; one of the better bowls out there; while this is more on the pricier side at $22.80, the two other bowls are priced below $15 before taxes and prevailing charges — a place to hit for those Tendon cravings without the queue (for now, that is).

Having launched their revamped menu just yesterday, Omote's newest menu not only boasts a wide variety of their latest Chirashi Don creations, it also features other items that showcases how Omote is more than their signature Chirashi Don.

Featuring garlic stir-fried beef with other condiments such as seaweed, spring onions and tempura bits as well as an Onsen Egg, the Ma-ze Udon comes with quite a generous portion of thick Udon beneath to be tossed with the other condiments in the bowl. Tossing everything together, the slurpy Udon is laced in a savoury sauce that the beef is simmered with; the meat being relatively tender without need much effort to chew whilst also coming with a hint of sweetness from the caramelised onions — the oozy and wobbly Onsen Egg providing a silkier texture to the entire bowl and the tempura bits creating a crispness for some contrast in texture. Whilst the "Garlic Dry" Beef Ma-ze Udon is something with a slightly heavier flavour than most traditional Japanese Udons out there, its a pretty flavoursome dish that would satisfy the local taste buds that are likely to crave for punchier flavours.

It was great. Was impressed by the food and the service. Would come back. Went at 5:30pm on a Friday, there was no queue (office crowd probably comes later).
