Back again after the pleasant experience with their Mentaiko Carbonara ($13.90). Went for the same mentaiko based pasta, but instead of bacon and a poached egg, I had prawns and shimeji mushrooms. The biggest plus point for me with their pastas here is definitely that huge portion! It makes it value for money without compromising on the standard. The mentaiko wasn’t as distinct this time round, but it was still creamy and pretty flavourful. Prawns were crunchy!

Soft Shell Crabs. Loved how crispy these were even though we left it aside for quite some time! They were good on its own even without the accompanying tangy sauce.

I LOVE crab miso, so when Teppei Syokudo posted about their new Kani Crab Miso Kaisen Don, I knew I had to get it. We were quite disappointed with the small portion of sashimi but they were generous with the crab miso, which was torched and served in a crab shell. The smokiness with the rich creaminess was very shiok! We had this to share with a normal kaisen don, which was better portioned. This don is only available till 2 December 2018!

Sashimi Moriwase: Assorted Raw Seafood with tuna, salmon, swordfish, yellowtail, cuttlefish and octopus. Easily the favourite of our meal! I was really surprised by how fresh and how generously portioned these sashimi were. Definitely something I’d re-order many times during my next visit!

Ippinmono: Appetisers. We had mini octopus, seaweed, potato salad and chawanmushi. Not much to shout about here, they’re pretty much what you’d expect. Saw something interesting on the menu though - apart from the normal chawanmushi, they also have kabocha chawanmushi, a pumpkin version!

Shin Minori’s somewhere I’ve been wanting to visit for a Japanese buffet, but haven’t got around doing it due to doubts about the spread and quality. I’ve got to say though, we were pretty impressed! We were so full but still, what we had was just a fraction of their menu that boasts over 150 items. My favs were the fresh sashimi moriwase, soft shell crabs and grilled skewers! They also have lots of sushi/maki/temaki options, fried items, noodles and rice, etc. Orders are prepared fresh and I especially liked how the fried items are served hot out of the fryer unlike some buffet places. Best of all, get the buffet 1 for 1 on Burpple Beyond!!

Yakimono: Grilled Dishes. Just grilled dishes alone, there’s nearly 30 different options. Didn’t get to try as much as I wanted to - really wanted to try their chicken liver, gizzard and heart, but still was pretty satisfied. We had miso-glazed zucchini, shiitake, chicken meatball with sweet soy sauce, asparagus bacon, pork with garlic seasoning and saba. All of which were done well!

A blanket of mentaiko mozzarella cheese on a huge chunk of cod fish with fried rice and an onsen egg! A pity that the fried rice looked a lot more flavourful than it was, but the rich mentaiko mozzarella cheese helped to balance it out better. Not the best cook on the cod but overall it was pretty addictive! Also, lunch mains come with free flow salads (there were three types during our visit), which was nice to have.

Made our reservations on Eatigo and scored a 50% discount off our total bill, making this really value for money. Check out the 1 for 1 deals on Burpple Beyond too!

Was attracted by their range of mentaiko pastas when we passed by! Went with the popular choice of Mentaiko Carbonara, that had pasta mixed in a spicy cod roe carbonara sauce and bacon, topped with a poached egg. You get to pick between spaghetti or tagliatelle for all their pastas. My serving of tagliatelle was done pretty nicely (a bit towards the softer side) and it picked up the addictive rich creamy sauce well. This plate is definitely on the heavier end of flavours but I didn’t mind it and didn’t find it jelak. Portion was generous for its price tag!

Tempura Fuji serves up udon, soba and rice - all matched up with a variety of toppings, e.g. tempura, curry, onsen egg, etc. We went for a simple Wakame Soba, that was decent and nothing too out of the ordinary from what you’d expect. It’s pretty similar to what you can whip up at home. I liked that the broth wasn’t too salty and soba retained a good bite. It’s a more affordable option when you’re craving for it!

Brothers Ramen is a cosy little ramen space in CBD with value for money bowls. Was really tempted to get their new Shoyu Ramen but resisted that to get their signature chicken ramen! I prefer thicker noodles, but brothers’ thin ones didn’t soften as much like others do and it picked up the rich and creamy broth very well. While we weren’t that impressed by the slightly dry and tough slice of pork chashu, the tender chicken chashu and well seasoned wanton redeemed it. Two big thumbs up too for the complimentary water (there’s even both iced and hot options), beansprouts and mashed potatoes!

Available both on the lunch and dinner menu, the Salmon Ochazuke is done with brown rice, nori, chopped shiso, salted plum and served with bacon dashi green tea. I think this may be close to how authentic ochazuke should be like (can’t say for sure as I haven’t had many!), but I personally found this a little too light and bland for my liking. Salmon was served with a nice crispy layer of skin and I guess it works if you’re looking for a healthy meal.
