This place appeared to be famous for their maguro but I was in the mood for salmon (I prefer salmon over maguro) so I ordered the cheapest item on the menu, the Salmon Rice Bowl with thick sliced Atlantic Salmon.

I have to say that they delivered on what they put on their menu! The salmon pieces were thick and substantial. The slices were beautifully marbled and fresh. It tasted sweet and melts in my mouth. Love love love!!! The rice used was authentic Japanese short grain rice, and tasted SO DELICIOUS with the Salmon. The rice was like glowing (i am not exaggerating) and perfectly seasoned, not too sour to overpower the salmon. The wasabi was also not too strong tasting, which I loved.

Would love to try the Maguro bowls in the future as the cheapest item on the menu, which was not their specialty, had honestly impressed me.

Ordered the Sliced Fish Soup ($5.80), Double Fish Soup ($6.80), extra egg floss ($1), Fried Tofu with Sesame ($4.80) and Calamansi with plum ($2)

Opted out of the milk in the soup to taste the original flavour, but sadly the broth fell a little short of my expectations. The fish flavour was not very strong but if you love garlic oil, you will love this. Many small pieces of garlic on the soup, which made the soup really fragrant. Fish slices were fresh and sweet, but quite little 🥺 think there were only 5-6 slices.

The fried tofu was really delicious, slightly crispy on the outside, and perfectly silky and tender inside. Was a tad bit oily though. With the sesame sauce (tasted exactly like Kewpie’s), it really complemented the flavour 😛

Calamansi with plum (not pictured) was a surprise. Even till the end when most of the ice had melted, the flavour was still very strong. The plum provided a nice, slightly salty aftertaste to the sour calamansi, worth a try!

Bill came out to be $20.40 for 2, which is pretty value-for-money considering a meal in town. We went down at around 3pm, but there was still a queue, which is a testament to the popularity of this place!

For $4, you get a huge bowl of noodles and soup. Look at that perfect gooey egg 🤩 Really great service as they will bring the noodles over to your table! Asked for less noodles and they gave more vegetables 💖 No wonder there’s always a line!
