This inconspicuous Japanese restaurant tucked away in the less frequented King Albert Park mall proved to be a hidden gem!

If you were to just get one thing from here, the ๐˜๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ค๐ฎ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’) is a must-try. The thin slices of Angus beef were perfectly tender and juicy as they absorbed the delicious yakiniku sauce ๐Ÿคค. The meat was accompanied by caramelised onions that brought a touch of sweetness, suitably finished off with a gooey onsen egg ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I also really love the rice they used, it was plump and soft, good quality Japanese rice. Every grain was substantially coated in the sauce, ensuring that you wonโ€™t end up with plain olโ€™ white rice at the end of your meal.

The ๐Š๐š๐ญ๐ฌ๐ฎ ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“) came with a generous portion of plump slices of meat. I loved that the katsu wasnโ€™t greasy, it had a light feel and was not dry in the slightest! With the addition of butter in their curry, it weighed heavily on the sweet and creamy side, absent of any spicy kick. The egg was a nice touch, but I think that the curry still lacked a depth in flavour ๐Ÿ˜”. However, the quality of the meat does help save the dish from the bog-standard.

Fried with less oil, the batter of their tempura is light and still super crispy, removing itself from the oily and greasy feeling youโ€™d usually associate with tempura. The ๐„๐›๐ข ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’) did just that, with the delicious vegetable and ebi prawn encased in the light crispy batter.
