This was surprisingly satisfying to me! Buttered buns wasn’t the best, not exactly crisp, nor fluffy and soft like their original cream bun but overall wasn’t too dry thanks to the appetizing sweet/sour sauce & homemade tartar. Fried chicken was very crispy and juicy without much greasiness and the vegetables also helped to cut through any signs of it. I liked how the sliced tomato and generous amount of refreshingly crunchy cabbage didn’t make the bun soggy + was very thinly shredded so I don’t feel like a bunny.

Truffle fries were essentially fries (remained crispy for quite awhile) with truffle-infused mayo dip. Could do with more truffle.

You probably can tell how much the place means to them - just look at the handmade menu and how the owners are hands-on with making your coffee. My iced (drip) coffee was great, potent, clean-tasting and definitely a good perkmeup. + they’re really very attentive too!
Limited selection of only curry rice, or toast and zenzai (red bean dessert), along with beverages on the menu. Both of us got the curry rice set (1300¥), comes with zenzai and coffee/tea. Curry was super tasty, creamy and slightly sweet; so despite the rather small portion of meat, I managed to finish everything - it was good enough to eat just the curry with rice on its own.
The fun part is choosing your own cup upon ordering a hot drink. There’s also a very charming spot of an irori fireplace for the zenzai - it’s refillable! And refill you will, because the zenzai was so darn good even for someone who hates red beans. These were plump, sweet and not at all mushy, and the soup was comfortingly refreshing - the hot version a slightly thicker consistency but with flavours more prominent than the cold. 📍 落人/ Ochudo

Loved the experience! The staff were all knowledgeable, helpful and 2 out of 3 sake were so good + affordable so G ended buying it back. This was also a pretty good pit stop to take a break from all the walking and crowd.
Ordered a soft serve (450¥) which turned out to be a very pleasant surprise! Drizzled with the tastiest sauce which I have no idea what it is - might be mirin - just knew that there’s no alcohol content in it but the combination of sweet-savoury sauce paired so well with the milky soft serve (brb gonna add soy sauce and mirin to ice creams! I KID). Well, best soft serve on the trip goes to this.

You walk in, have an inkling of what to expect, and still it sweeps you off your feet.
There’s just something about watching the chef at work, from skillfully making sure each piece was even as we were sharing, to carefully searing and plating the beautifully marbled beef, watching the smoke dance right in front of you, with amazing smells and the glorious sounds of sizzling beef hitting your senses.
And it was sublime. Melt-in-the-mouth-tender. Served with pepper, two types of salt (seaweed-seasoned/regular), garlic chips, mustard, soy sauce and ponzu were provided as condiments - but salt, of course, is the best to savour its natural flavours.

Lunch set here costs 5800¥ for A4 (140g), 7800¥/ 8800¥ for A5 (130g/ 150g). Each set comes with salad, grilled seasonal vegetables, miso soup, rice (we topped up 500¥ for garlic fried rice, fried with the kobe beef fats/ crisp bits of meat!), sherbet and coffee/ tea; with an additional appetizer for the A5 lunch set.
If I ever get the chance to be back again, I’ll just go for the A4 instead because it’s good enough to me already (+less pricey, duh!😂) we preferred this as the flavours are actually more prominent possibly due to the lower marbling fat content..?? Anyhooooo was sad when it was all over, knowing I probably won’t have access to something this good at this value anytime soon🤷🏻‍♀️ -

Loved the raspberry sauce but the smooth decadent white chocolate was too sweet for my liking. Pairing it with the matcha was a good idea to cut through the sweetness but the white chocolate still seemed to overpower the matcha a wee bit. #burpple

Nothing fancy but so good! Soft flakey flesh, fried to perfection with crisp exterior without greasiness; served in only light soy sauce. Portion wasn’t huge tho. #burpple

Nothing exceptionally mindblowing about this but I liked the variety of ingredients, and it was pretty decent. Special Prawn Noodles ($6.50, +$1 for prawn/ lala/ pork) comes with prawns, their specialty handmade prawn (pretty addictive, will probably order more on the side) and a piece of tender, smoky kurobuta pork. Ordered dry noodles so soup was served on the side, I usually like it richer, didn’t mind this but some may find it too light. Not sure if the broth for the soup version might be thicker, but I guess I wouldn’t mind trying it again.

Slightly crisped white bread sandwiched with juicy pork cutlets that weren’t too greasy, crunchy cabbage with tonkatsu sauce. I quite liked the hojicha latte here too and don’t forget to get their signature apple pie! Flaky, buttery and not too sweet. #burpple

Seems to be naturally sweet with no added sugar for both. Very refreshing and you do get a hint of both, plus there are little coconut bits. Extensive menu of different variations/ toppings, and they sell ice cream too - good idea to beat the heat! #burpple

Yes, yes it is pricey BUT you get these beautiful melt-in-your-mouth-tender pork jowl atop fragrant slightly garlicky fried rice, served with furikake, wafu sauce and onsen egg! #burpple

Perpetual queue here so as a typical Singaporean of course I queued. They ran out of siewyoke and rice while I was queuing🤷🏻‍♀️ But I get why there was a queue - the char siew was really pretty darn good! Portion was small so I probably should have agreed to add on charsiew when they asked. The char siew here was nicely caramelised without being overly sweet, tender with a good proportion of fatty parts and the portion with charred bits was so shiok. I also really enjoyed the noodles. #burpple
