Aglio olio is a simple dish that most people can hardly execute well, but Le Coq is not most people. I love how smokey and garlicky this dish is, although it is definitely not for the purists. Loaded with mushroom to give an earthy note, the angel hair pasta was addictive and a lil spicy.

Though a tad clumpy (cos it was sitting for a while), the cold somen was refreshing even after all the feast that we had earlier. The truffle aroma might come across too strong but was surprisingly not overwhelming in flavour. Enjoyed this more than I expected.

Uni was decently fresh and creamy, which is quite hard to get in most places. Hardly can go wrong with the burst of umami on a slightly crispy toast.

The combination of crabsticks, Japanese mayo, tobiko and chives is indeed fail-proof and addictive. Rice cracker was as thin as paper, but firm enough to hold the "dips" together. This makes a very appetising starter.

Really love the thick broth here! But what I love the most is how customisable everything is- from the choice of pork (sliced pork or pork belly) to the amount of chilli (even for the original broth!). Go for the pork belly because it’s super tender and well-marinated. I went all out with the amount of garlic too and boy, it just made the broth even better. Although their rendition of beansprouts is not as nice as Keisuke’s, they make it up by providing yutaka takana (spicy preserved mustard leaves).

A decent bowl of ramen offering rich tonkotsu broth with a splash of black garlic oil. Charsiu wasn't my favourite- limp and lacking in flavour. The straight noodle had a good bite though (I requested for "hard"). The regular size is good enough without making me feel too bloated after the meal. Won't be the first ramen shop that comes across my mind but don't mind going back if I'm in the area without specific dinner plans.

Dan dan men, the most expensive item here, came loaded with ingredients: 2 kinds of pork, puckled radish, onions, ajitama, fried shallots, and some greens. One of the pork chunks were a tad too sweet for my liking, but when mixed they all came out fragrant and tasty. The peanut taste was super duper strong, and that's why the dashi broth came in handy to dilute it slowly as you are getting full (or jelat). I chose medium spicy and level 3 for the mala spices, but found it quite subtle. Could have chosen very spicy with more mala spices if you want more kicks. Not a cheap bowl of noodle for sure, but I love how bold the flavour is.

Hole-in-a-wall ramen shop nestled in the second level of International Plaza, Enishi successfully brought me back to my vacay days in Japan with only 9 seats and an open kitchen concept. Enishi currently only serves 2 dishes- dan dan men and ramen with dashi broth. I personally enjoy the chewy buckwheat noodle used here although most people may find the flat shape unusual. The dashi broth is my favourite of the two. Flavour was strong yet comforting. The aburi pork belly is worth a shout-out too! Overall, it was a comforting bowl that easily pleases your tastebuds.

Got our craving for sushi satisfied by the offerings here. Almost half of the sushi here are priced at $2.20++, which makes this chain really value-for-money. Don't expect the highest quality of ingredients used, but I find most of them pretty good and fresh. My favourites are the lemon basil scallops, crab with crab butter (kani miso), negitoro, and angler fish. Recommend trying their cold chawanmushi if you haven't tried it before. Definitely will be back for satisfying budget sushi meals!

The bonito tonkotsu broth was really fragrant and carried bold flavour. The minced onion helped to cut through the strong flavour while giving additional crunches. The sliced lime also added a nice tangy kick. Love the sightly curly noodle used here.

While the broth was quite thick and spicy, it was surprisingly sweet to the extent of being jelat. Le bf and I both didn't like the broth because of the overpowering sweetness- which we couldn't even figure out what the source was (definitely not sugar). Such a pity because the rest of the ingredients like the chasiu and straight noodle were pretty good!

Surprisingly good though I'm not a big fan of mayo and salmon. The onion gave a nice crunch to the salmon. The rice was a little soft to my liking, and some of them didn't stick together properly, but other than that, the quality is pretty good.
