This bowl was HUGE. Fish was the typical dory fillet, but no complaints as they came in tender huge chunks that soaked up all that flavour. Beneath all these was a mini mountain of beansprouts, enoki mushrooms, beancurd skin and vegetables. Was a little oily but expected, it was flavourful, a little numbing and had a good heat. It’s great for sharing!

The green bean noodles were nicely chewy, and soaked up all the spicy chili oil sauce that had a nice tangy kick to it. It was strongly seasoned, very appetising and I really liked the contrasting crunch from the cucumbers and black fungus. If you want something less spicy, they also have the 东北拉皮 ($8), which uses the same green bean noodles.

They serve skewers here too! Didn’t order much since we had the other dishes. The seasoning used was more peppery and salty, less spicy but still pretty addictive! Will try more skewers next time.

Came specifically wanting to try the 风味鸡蛋干 Flavoured Egg Tofu ($6) cause it looked like something I tried and really liked in Shanghai, but it was sold out! 😩 Went with this salad instead. The asparagus lettuce slices were crunchy, and the seasoning was lighter with a subtle sourness. Helped to relief some of the heat from our other dishes, but wasn’t our favourite.

This was quite salty (good if you’re having it with rice), but the clams were plump and meaty! It came in a good portion too, with just 2-3 clams empty.

Haven’t been back to Jin Jin Eating House in a while! Tried the soup version this round and really liked the heat with the lingering numbness. Their ingredients are fresh and are cooked well - liked the chewiness of the wide sweet potato noodles and how they soaked up the slightly creamy soup nicely.

Underestimated how good this would be! Though called soba, the texture leaned closer to that of ramen. They were springy and had a great bite, without being doughy at all. The pork based broth was lightly creamy and just so comforting. Pork chunks were tender too!

Pork belly braised in Okinawa brown sugar, soy sauce and awamori - an Okinawa distilled liquor. This was tender while retaining a nice bite, and was very well braised. It had a light sweetness to it and wasn’t oily.

This hot pot loin katsu has pork loin cooked in savory dashi broth with egg. As with its other sets, this came with miso/pork belly soup, as well as refillable salad and white/brown rice. Though the egg mixture was a touch salty, it was good with its well cooked rice. Cutlet here had a thinner cut compared to the other Ginjio Pork Katsu (Fatty Loin) Set ($38) we had, and we liked the ratio and texture here better. Slices of onions in there were soft and sweet.

At Ginza Anzu, you’ll find a whole range of katsu options - from the classic pork and chicken, to salmon and seafood! Sets come with pickled veg, miso/pork belly soup + refillable white/brown rice and cabbage salad. If you prefer something less fatty, they offer the Pork Fillet Set ($32) too.

Tried this and the Hot Pot Loin Katsu Set ($28), and we preferred the latter as the cutlet had better texture. This fatty loin was generously thick, but less consistent in its texture throughout and a bit tough. Actually thought it’d prefer it with a thinner cut! It was a little oily but the salad helped in balancing it out. Rice was cooked well.
