The other set we ordered for variety’s sake, came with tamagoyaki, 2 plump scallops and a piece of salmon with melt-in-the-mouth fatty goodness.

Would have gotten the other beef but they ran out of it so it was the Roast Beef with Unagi instead - the tender roast beef was served medium rare and cold (which they inform beforehand to make sure you’re ok with it).

They also ran out of the self grated wasabi which I had heard so much about but it was still good.

Would’ve liked my unagi to be a little more charred but it was at least fresh and soft, and the sauces were not overwhelmingly sweet/ salty. Got the Hitsumabushi style and the dashi broth was great - very light and tasty! Even the soup served with their set had a nice hint of yuzu which I loved.

Loved the tsukemen as the dipping sauce was refreshing, tangy and zesty, and surprisingly lighter than usual tsukemen dips. Noodles seemed slightly thicker than the soup-based ramens and a little springier!

This was flavourful but I prefer the shio one as it’s more refreshing and light! Felt that the Yuzu flavour melded better with the lighter broth. Noodles used was also the same, preferred it to be springier.

Favourite broth! Light and delicate chicken-based broth with a citrusy fragrance of Yuzu. Chashu here was a little dry compared to what I had in Japan. Would’ve preferred if the noodles were a little springier but will definitely be back.

One of my favoritest favourite ramen from Tokyo has arrived in Singapore!🥳 We were there around 5pm so we didn’t have to wait for long.

Can’t say that it’s as good as Japan’s (wasn’t a fan of the chashu here as it was a little dry, and the price of the ramen is of course, slightly more expensive at $15.90) but I’ll take what I can get and in any case, it’s still very satisfying!

Every ramen comes with the usual suspects - bamboo shoots, (half) ajitama, seaweed and cha shu.

My favourite was the light delicate broth of the Yuzu shio ramen, followed by the Tsukemen - refreshingly tangy and the dipping sauce was surprisingly not too rich. Preferred the noodles of tsukemen as it was a little springier.

The Buta Wing Gyoza (6 pcs $6.90) was a must-order, according to the waitress and so we did; pretty decent, crisp, fillings were quite juicy and flavorful.

While the menu lacks in variety in the type of meat available, at least they do offer a non-fish option, and even that was done well too. It’s also the cheapest option on the menu at only $9.90 (rock salt)/ $10.90 (teriyaki)! The chicken was succulent, skin had a bit of crispness, teriyaki sauce was just right - not too salty nor sweet.

Also comes with the set so this is really value for money!

Salmon belly was also done well - soft, fatty, cooked just right! One thing for sure, the fish here tastes fresh and are very tasty - so just pick your favourite and I’m almost certain it’ll be good!

The homemade fish cake was also surprisingly good! With corns and peas within for textural contrast and lending a bit of sweetness to the soft, springy fish cake. This also comes as a set, but we requested for no rice to be served as we already had a set each.

This was incredibly good. Smooth, flaky and slightly oily with crisp skin! The set is value-for-money - comes with japanese rice, onsen egg, miso soup, grilled cheese, pickles, radish, a very good, halved baby potato + access to the salad bar.

The menu here at Charcoal Grill & Salad Bar is focused mainly on fish, so it’s my favorite Keisuke concept to date😂

Every dish is served with japanese rice, onsen egg, miso soup, grilled cheese, pickles, radish, a very good, halved baby potato + access to the salad bar with a good variety of fresh vegetables/ soba/ fruits (we also had a pretty potent coffee jelly) - super worth it!

This had a nice firm, flaky texture which I thought was a little similar to the cod but was a tad more fishy. I didn’t mind it at all but the rest strongly preferred the cod instead.

I like how they offer the option of mini vs regular bowl, and the menu is quite affordable with a good range of items such as Japanese curry/ chirashi/ rice and soba dishes.

Waiting time was a tad long but it could just be teething problems :) Ended up with soba and chicken katsu - was lightly breaded and juicy! Soba was also comfortingly tasty (and I added wasabi to it oops) but the texture of the noodles were on the softer side while I like mine with a little bite.

My lunch buddy got the mini snow beef don which was a good combination of sweet tender grilled beef slices, and savoury grated parmesan with cream sauce and stewed cabbages (or beansprout). If you’re feel munchy, add on $2.90 for a miso soup and chawanmushi, or chawanmushi and a drink. Portion is small, but the chawanmushi was smooth and had quite a bit of ingredients within.

There’s also plenty of side dishes for sharing!
