Recently opening their latest outlet, nozomi brings hearty jap food & shelves-load of sake to Star Vista.

I was fed their sponsored ads on IG & bought into it (thanks for making me your target audience) but it was a great choice to pay them a visit as their service and food were spot on!

Hubs & I ordered their Wagyu Beef Shiogayaki Don ($26) and Hokkaido Pork Katsu Yaki Capellini ($29).

The latter is a fusion blend of Italian meets Japanese. The capellini is tossed in sweet sauce (kinda like a yaki-udon style) and topped with bonito flakes. On the side, a huge crispy breaded Hokkaido pork loin cutlet accompanies the pasta. For the capellini, we would've preferred if it were soba or udon instead as the texture felt a tad bit strange. That aside, the pork cutlet was crispy and fried to perfection, maintaining its juiciness with every bite. Every piece has a thick layer of fat that melts in your mouth while retaining its natural juices.

For the former, thinly sliced wagyu beef is stir-fried with grated ginger, onions and sweet sauce, then laid on top a bowl of pipping hot niigata rice. The slices of meat were tender and the sweet flavours from the sauce was subtle and enjoyable. The addition of the onsen egg gave it a creamy bump followed by their pickled radish to cleanse your palate before the next scoop. Accompanying the rice bowl is a portion of oden soup, which is something different as compared to your usual miso. The oden is served with konnyaku, daikon and fish cakes, ending your meal on a sweet note.

If you're looking for sustainable meats, look no further as Next Meats is now in Singapore & serving up the world's first plant-based Yakiniku Meats!

This collaboration between @nextmeats_singapore x @aburien.sg brings you plant-based NEXT Kalbi (boneless short rib) from now till July at all Aburi-EN stores!

You can try your meat in 2 forms, of which, one of them is the Stamina Teishoku ($15.80), pictured here!

This set comes with a stir-fried version of the NEXT Kalbi, sautéed with cabbage, carrots & shimeji mushrooms & topped with an egg imported from Okinawa - bringing you an authentic Japanese Don experience!

This alternative is not only environmentally friendly, but it also comes with health benefits, such as double the protein & half the amount of fat! So you've got yourselves yakiniku, without the guilt! 😉

Perhaps one of my favourite items to order whenever I visit Yujin Izakaya their Katsu Sando!

Their beef is seared to perfection, and coated with a light thin crispy crust, and sandwiched between fluffy toasted white bread which soaks up the teriyaki sauce that goes on top of the katsu.

The perfect harmony of flavours & juices that leaves you going mmmmm. 😋

Recently launched by PIES by Hattendo, you got your classic mix of Italian-Japanese flavours, just in time for the festive seasons - Pistachio & Hokkaido Soft Serve.

Pistachio imported directly from Italy & roasted in-house, it helped to create perfect blend between the pistachio & Hokkaido milk 👌🏼

The creaminess of the Hokkaido milk, paired with the toasty, crunchy pistachio bits made this the perfect seasonal dessert to end your meal with!

Thank you #Burpple for the invite!

Assorted slices of sashimi served with a fancy side of dry ice bubbling away, giving you this extra cool & cold effect on the thick slices of sashimi.

The sashimi consisted of salmon, akami (tuna), kanpachi (amberjack), mekaijiki (swordfish) & tai (sea bream). Each slice was extremely fresh as you could tell from the natural sweetness of the seafood.

You can choose either 15pcs for $42, or a smaller portion of 9pcs for $25!

P/S: purchase the $50 voucher via CHOPE to enjoy 10% off! You basically pay $45 first to offset your total bill!

Apart from being really affordable, Buta Kin serves up hearty, slurp-worthy ramen!

Their slice of char siew is perfectly torched & the fats melts also instantly, while still holding it's shape.

Noods wise, their springy ramen holds up till your last mouthful. Broth wise, their thick, Tonkotsu flavour bursts, and with the addition of the black garlic, there's an extra oomph to it.

Taking out & eating in has been a norm & we are constantly worried if the food we ordered via delivery will taste as good as if you were dining in.

The people at Takagi Ramen has helped to settle that problem! Their innovative packaging of splitting up the ramen & ingredients from the ramen broth has allowed us to enjoy the ramen! It's as if we had it at the store itself!

This allows for the ramen to still have that bite without turning overly soggy in the broth.

As part of their promo as well, you get 5pc of crispy fried Gyoza at a total cost of $12, almost as good as dining in!

The Karaka-men comes with a hot & spicy broth, made from their special blend of red chillies added to the creamy tonkotsu broth, definitely something for the spice lovers out there.

This steak is on fire 🔥

Hailing from Hokkaido, the Hokkaido Wagyu Steak ($23.90) is a flaming good piece of attraction! Served in a hotpot, the steak pieces are torched on the spot with some heat to give you the perfect melt-in-your-mouth medium rare!

This slab of steak is specially flown in directly from Hokkaido, ensuring you that you only get the best!

4 month old Amazing Hokkaido is located along the cooling stretch of Robertson Quay. Their interior consists of fishing nets and Japanese lanterns which immerses you into your own Japan experience.

One of their top 10 popular dishes are the Muroran Yakitori, which is tender pork skewers partitioned by sweet onions. Each skewer is grilled upon order and comes with a teriyaki glaze.

The pork pieces are extremely soft & juicy & melts almost instantly! It's no wonder why they made it to the number 1 spot for their popular dishes.

If raw sashimi is not for you, you can always order the Beef Cube Don!

What you get is 150g of torched prime NZ beef cubes topped with garlic chips! Each piece of beef is flavourful & torched perfectly & placed on top of warm Japanese short grain rice.

Oyster fans, what up!!

I’m not a fan, but for those who are, this is for you.

As seen in its name, this is a must try. For those who were dining with me, they mentioned that it is plump, fresh & really yummy.

They do have a happy hour promo that happens both on weekends & weekdays. The promo is $2++ a pop for half a dozen, with any alcoholic drink purchased. This is available from Mon to Fri, 6-8pm and Sat & Sun, 3-5pm!
