Have been eyeing this for a long time and finally got down to try! Pleasantly surprised by the rather generous dollop of mentaiko that was sufficient to go around, but I think the equally generous mayonnaise muted the former flavor quite a bit. Texture of the noodles was springy but it felt a little too dry, and it got jelak quite quickly - adding the soup helped a bit!

Came by for a group dinner using Burpple Beyond’s 1 for 1 - we had 3 sets and it was so worth it for just about 10 bucks per pax!!! I’ve only had their Mentaiko Bowl before and decided to go for something new this round. Their Mixed Bowl Tendon came with a huge plate of long beans, prawns, sweet potato slices, shiitake mushroom, enoki mushroom, tobiko and a slab of chicken fillet. They were all fresh but the batter a little too thick and would have been nicer if ours was served hotter. Instead of rice, you can top up for a bowl of hot udon or soba soup too. I was pleasantly surprised by the thin udon, though unfortunately it was a touch too soft.

This one is really dependent on whether you like that crunchy bony texture! I’ve only had chicken cartilage one other time so I’m not exactly sure what’s good, but this had a decently well-seasoned fried coating.

Sanpoutei’s shoyu ramen (the Orchard outlet) is my fav to-go ramen whenever I’m craving for something savory, soupy and comforting. I know that many may find this too salty, but I just love how clear and light yet rich it is - the fish stock base is so pronounced! Their curly thick noodles are always done perfectly, with tender chunks of bamboo shoots and melt-in-the-mouth thick aburi chashu. Damn shioooooook! (Was only abit sad that they replaced the generous spring onions with veg that didn’t seem to go very well).

Loved how homely and comforting this small pot was! My favourites were the chunks of flavourful radish and konnyaku that have soaked up the savory broth so well. I wasn’t a big fan of the numerous chicken skin given and it would have been nice if there was a more equal mix of other offals.

The side topping of chilli gave this dish that extra kick of spice we didn’t expect, but it was also significantly salty and a little oily.

One of the dishes I preferred! These little bites were grilled just nice, with that slightly crunchy chewy texture, but not dry. Remember to squeeze a drizzle of lemon over to get that added touch of refreshing acidity.

Not the best but we quite liked it. A simple dish of tuna cubes paired with grated yam!

Pretty average dish, it’s what you’d expect braised eggs to taste like!

Unassuming little bowl of bean sprouts that looks similar to Keisuke Ramen’s complimentary side but better - marinated well but not too salty.

Unlike Nobu-ya, there’s no minimum alcohol policy here (or maybe just not yet hahaha 😂) and they specialise in beef and chicken. Found the flavours here more heavy in general with a few hits and misses among those we had. Having this meal made me crave for Nobu-ya more 🙊, but to be fair, I don’t take beef so that reduces the options I could get. Motsu-ya’s lunch menu looks great though, with chirashi, negitoro don, anago don ($9.80 for their opening promo!!). They are open for lunch from 11.30am to 2pm and 5.30pm to 9.30pm for dinner from Mondays to Saturdays. Although they aren’t as packed as Nobu-ya for now, still good to make a reservation before going down: 62564192.

Portion was small but the flavour made up for it! The tofu had a smooth custardy texture, while the pitan sauce was creamy and chunky with bits of pitan. The ratio of sauce to tofu was just nice too! Would be great if they allow diners the option to order a bigger portion.
