Reviews of good food at JAPAN RAIL CAFE

Well, at least I changed the chicken Katsu to try their ginger pork which was yums too.

Baked by @chefyamashita exclusively for the Tochigo Prefecture event at @japanrailcafe (1-3 Dec), this dessert was my ultimate bias among all! 💖 Laying atop a crisp, fragrant almond tart lies sweet, juicy strawberries, blueberries and smooth, light and fluffy whipped cream. Not only was it photogenic but the taste was just as great with the almond tart carrying off a lingering buttery fragrance and having a tart shell that came with an ideal crisp perfection ❤️. The portion was just nice for one, without being too overwhelming for the palate and the slight acidic notes from the berries provided a tangy dimension to alleviate the sweetness. The whipped cream was also cotton-like and smooth, with a melt-in-the mouth texture. And the main highlight- Tochigo strawberries air flown from Japan that was really juicy, fresh with a slight lingering tanginess amidst the natural fruity sweetness. Sincerely hoping that @chefyamashita would consider having this as a permanent item in their menu hehe! XD
Thanks @japanrailcafe for hosting this event that satisfied my sweet little tooth’s cravings and @foodinsing for extending the invite! ✨ .

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: Japan produces the most dessert strawberries in the world and Tochigi Prefecture is one of many Prefectures in Japan that does it well however, they’re one of the best in the business.
The strawberries have a sweet fragrance and taste which is not too overwhelming and 💵S$15 for a box of gems that was handpicked and flew over all within a matter of days, it’s damn worth every penny. 🤤
Incorporating the strawberries into his cakes and pastries Chef Yamashita @chefyamashita created a Strawberry Shortcake Swiss Rolls and Choux Tart that highlights the natural sweetness of the strawberries and TBH his creations are always on point.
You can always rely on the Bartenders at Bitters & Love @bittersandlove to create a badass bespoke cocktail and what they created for the event might seem simple but the strawberries blended well together with the alcohol, a cup just isn’t enough for an alcoholic like me.🔖
Thanks @sqtop & @veronicaphua for the invitation!

The sweet juicy berries were used in crafting these delicate desserts from @chefyamashita - the Strawberry Tart & Strawberry Short Cake.
A definite gem these babies are 😍

Thank you @sqtop for the invitation!

Gorgeous, super sweet and juicy strawberries from the Tochigi prefecture that you can purchase at JR Cafe!

Had fun at the interesting session on the sights that Tochigi has got to offer (gonna add it to my itinerary for my next visit to Japan!) with tasty sweets from @chefyamashita 😍

Thank you @veronicaphua & @sqtop for extending the invite!

Our Friend spotted this on social media and hence, we all made our way here for lunch today. She gave it a triple thumbs up. The tempura was light and tasty and you can pour the clear dashi into your bowl of multigrain rice.

The ultimate ABC (avocado, bacon and cheese) wagyu burger. The rest of us who didn’t order this had serious burger envy. I took a small bite and it was good! Very, very good! No wonder there’s one of these on every table.

Amazing Japanese curry with minced beef...choose your main and sides and create your own combination.

I had the fried oysters for main and grilled scallops as sides.

Worth a try folks...if you are at Tanjong Pagar Centre. 😉

Went on Friday lunch time. My colleague ordered sashimi don & curry rice ($18) while I ordered A.B.C. Burger ($22). Food comes pretty quickly even they mentioned it took a while to wait for the burger. The food is pretty good and the portion is satisfying. The only concern is you really have to wait for a while to get a seat - I guess I have waited to 20-30mins to have a seat for 3 of us on a Friday lunch hour.

Twin Flavoured Crispy Chicken Don (S$16)
Best of both world 🌎- chicken nambam in 2 flavours Nambam tartare sauce and Japanese grated radish sauce.
Served with dashi soup
Available at @JapanRailCafe in @TanjongPagarCentre
When one could not decided on crispy fried chicken or soupy dish. Halfway through one could add the soup to make it into an ochazuke, which is similar to Teochew style fish porridge.

(Refer to my previous post) Hearty curry! Chose the crispy chicken and crab cream korroke as our main and side respectively.

Here's the Kaisen Avocado Don ($18, seafood and avocado rice bowl with salmon sashimi and scallops, and soup to enjoy ochazuke style) from travel-themed #JapanRailCafe, located on first floor of the new #TanjongPagarCentre. #MediaTasting #DINEatTPC

Felt that this place is rather over hyped, no doubt for the Japan Rail themed decor rather than the food. Contrary to the many positive reviews I've read of this Kaisen don, I personally did not enjoy it as much. This is a very healthy rice bowl, comprises of multi grain rice, thinly sliced salmon sashimi, scallops with gills, cucumber, avocadoes and ikuras. Two methods to eating it, simply as a don, or as a ochazuke (pouring the soup provided into the bowl); with the latter being my preferred option. Those with a lighter palate would enjoy this dish whereas people who prefer stronger/saltier dishes (like moi), might not.

You get to choose 2 ingredients to go with your curry rice and I got the curry rice with chicken cutlet and crab cream croquette! The curry was tasty and went well with the crispy chicken cutlet and the crab creamy croquette was crispy outside and creamy on the inside which made a good meal!

Fries served with cheese and a dollop of mentaiko mayo is always a good idea 😋
