This was one of our staple orders in the past. Not sure if it was just this bowl we had, but pity that it very much lacked the mentai flavour ☹️ The udon itself still had pretty good texture but it’s a skip for us now. Would definitely get another of their sushi rolls instead in future.

Bought this from ShopBack Go’s flash deal some time back. The set came with a bowl of yuzu kaisendon and a cup of yuzu drink.

Teppei Syokudo used to be a spot we go to quite often for the original kaisendons, but feel like their quality has been dropping quite a lot lately. The sashimi cubes were dressed in a light yuzu sauce, while the rice was plain without its signature soy. The bowl overall was quite dry and the quality of the sashimi wasn’t great ☹️ We wanted their fresh wasabi, but was told that this bowl doesn’t come with any - requests for it will require a top up. The yuzu drink was sweet and really sour.

Think my last visit to Itacho was a few years ago! Probably don’t need to introduce them any further heh - they have fresh sushi, affordably priced at this quality + an extensive menu. This Roasted Salmon with Tenkasu Roll is always so satisfying with the slices of torched salmon, well-cooked sushi rice and hot crunchy tempura bits on top.

Sushiro’s one of the fuss-free spots we go to when we want to get a bigger range of sushi that’s less common at other conveyor belt sushi spots. Always appreciate the variety they have + the rotating seasonal specials. Skip their salmon ones though and I must say that the consistency for quality can be much better managed!

t’s a top up of $2 to opt for this spicy cold udon instead of the usual hot/cold soba/udon but thought it was very worth the try! The chewy inaniwa udon has Sakura ebi, fried tempura batter crumbs, thin leeks and cucumber strips in taberu layu (red pepper and garlic seasoned oil). Toss them all together and you get a spicy and refreshing side that very nicely balances out the fried tempura items.

Had Tenya once at their Orchard Central outlet previously and now they have a bright new space at ION Orchard! Picked one of the sets just so that I could try their new spicy cold udon. Tempura for this bowl includes prawns, squid, lotus, crab stick, pumpkin and french beans. A pity that the prawns were a bit bland, but we liked that the items were all not as oily. The pumpkin was especially sweet! Their tare leans a bit more savory than the usual sweeter sort. The default amount of sauce is quite minimal, but they do have bottles of tare on each table of you to add on.

Ps. Opt for less rice and get a discount of 50 cents - I highly recommend that if you’re not too hungry cause the set’s portion was quite filling. Their food’s very decent at this portion and price point!

There’s quite a big range of sides for you to pick from here at Kei Kaisendon, we went with the Anago Sushi and Homemade Tamago Mentai. The mentaiko sauce was not bad - creamy and came in a generous portion. Thought the Anago Sushi was a tad pricey. Liked that the sauce wasn’t too sweet.

Similar to the Ebi Mentaiyaki Kaisendon ($19.90) thought the quality and cuts of the sashimi here were quite average. The sashimi has a mix of octopus, salmon, tuna, ikura and swordfish. The hotate slices however, were fresh and came bigger than we expected.

Menu’s pretty big here at Kei Kaisendon, with a number of chirashi bowls, bentos and cooked rice bowls to choose from. There also have sets that come with sides of soup and salads. These here are the Ebi Mentaiyaki Kaisendon, Hotate Mentai Kaisendon, Tamago Mentai and Anago Sushi.

The sashimi bowls have a standard mix of octopus, salmon, tuna, ikura and swordfish. Thought the quality and cuts for these were quite average, but enjoyed the ebi which had a light smokiness. The sashimi dressing leans more sweet with a vinegary touch. If you are a fan of mentaiko, they have a number of dishes to choose from. The sauce was not bad, it was creamy and came in a generous portion like on the tamago we had.

Donki’s sushi has been our family’s most frequent to go meals nowadays - not the best supermarket sushi, but still super decent for its price, variety and convenience! Didn’t get to take a picture, but we always get their raw tako wasabi as a side too.

The ramen spot that made me fall in love with shoyu broths and has since been one of my favourite to-go places for a satisfying bowl! The broth looks unassumingly clear, but it’s light yet umami rich, with a very pronounced dried sardines stock base. You get springy curly ramen noodles with aburi chashu, bamboo shoots, seaweed and half an egg. Only thing is that the chashu sometimes are a little too fatty for my liking.

For each of their ramen, they are available in a range of prices, depending on the amount of toppings you want.

Other than ramen, there are a few different appetisers. First time trying the agedashi tofu! It came with mushrooms and grated radish that had a touch of spice. Unlike the usual sort that has the tofu come crisp, these ones had a more chewy soft potato starch coating. Tofu cubes were silky smooth and the broth was comforting. I would actually request got the spiced radish to be served separately next time though, as I liked the broth on its own. A bit pricey, but we enjoyed it!
