Got this set and it was super filling. It includes tempura for prawn, squid, maitake mushroom, eggplant, butternut pumpkin, and egg + half portion of rice and half portion of cold soba. With the exception of egg, each piece has a light batter and not greasy at all. Particularly loved the pumpkin and eggplant which were both sweet and fresh. Would have enjoyed it a bit better if the tempura sauce is glazed evenly, and the prawn/squid fresher

One of the better tendon restaurants in SG food and price-wise. Only been here a couple of times but the quality never wavers.

The Kohaku Tendon bowl has (straight from the menu) 2 prawns, a squid, a pair of french beans, pumpkin, baby corn, shitake, chicken breast, and crabmeat stick. The prawns are very fresh and soft. Squid is cooked perfectly and not tough at all. All the veggies are prepared well - the combination has a good taste balance as well. Loved the pumpkin specifically as it has the right amount of sweetness. Chicken breast could be less cooked as it’s bordering dry. Batter is commendable - thin but still provides crisp, and not oily at all

Overall a good dish ✨

Very happy surprise. Just tried this out of curiosity, and it has become one of my faves

I am a huge fan of unagi (esp if there’s not much tiny bones lol), due to its subtly sweet taste. Hitsumabushi provided a unique experience. It allows you to enjoy your unagi on top of rice in 3 different ways (iirc, they will give you a guide so no need to panic lol)

✨ By itself. This will make you enjoy the fish in its raw form. Similar to your usual unagi don
✨ With condiments on top (I got some green onions and seaweed)
✨ With dashi broth. This will remove the sauce from the eel, but will be enveloped with the very warm and hearty broth. This is my favorite. Reminds me of the chazuke we had during winter

Had it a couple of times last year and early this year (not sure if it’s still available as it’s not on the grand menu anymore). Need to visit again! πŸ˜‚

The ika tempura is a once-you-start-you-can’t-stop kind of dish, tastes like some prawn crackers but better β€” prepared with fresh & soft filling (squid and smt roe) with crispy & thin batter. Good to munch on while waiting for your other orders

You get a sweet & sour mouthful from each bite of one of Sushi Tei’s special rolls, the Dai Dai Roll. It is filled with crabmeat, mango, and lettuce, and topped with salmon and fish roe. Similar to a usual cali maki but upgraded. It is drizzled as well with mayo and some vinegar adding to the taste

Tender, juicy, and smoky ✨ this Iberico Hoho Don ($17.90++) features sliced grilled Iberico pork jowl on a bed of Jap rice.

Love that what I had recently has a more charred taste that matches well with the teriyaki sauce on top. Me, being a big eater, would have loved to have a bigger serving tho πŸ˜‚

Maruhachi’s Pork Katsu Set ($11.80) is a cheap yet very decent alternative to my regular katsu cravings. The pork is not oily at all (taste and smell-wise) making it pleasing to eat. It is a bit lean and have minimal fat, but still tender. The crumbs are worth noting as well as it’s very light (some hawker stalls do tend to have the coating slightly thick)

This comes with Japanese rice, miso soup, and cabbage (w Kewpie πŸ˜‹) - all the usual stuff we get free-flowing from katsu restaurants but with at least half the price

Enjoyed this dish, will try their blackpig katsu next time (raved to have better fat-to-meat ratio!) ☺️

Posting yet another throwback from our Japan trip. This Hida Beef Sushi Set C (Β₯1000, 2020 price) is a trio of hida beef served on a rice cracker

🍣 Salt Hida Beef - the best among the three for me. The salt enhances the flavor of the beef
🍣 Soy Ginger Hida Beef - not my preference as the ginger taste is a bit stronger than that of the beef
🍣 Gunkan Hida Beef - served within seaweed and has fresh egg on top, is new for me but really enjoyable. The yolk enveloping the beef upon the bite makes it creamy

Beef is served medium rare. Though I was expecting the meat to be more fatty (since it’s hida), I find it pleasing to have it on the leaner side for these three preparations. The meat still melts in the mouth. Really good.

Highly recommend to try this out when you are in Takayama. This can easily be spotted from Sanmachi street with the long queue - though it might seem to be touristy, the store lives up to the hype 😁

The past two gloomy days got me thinking of ramen. Had this bowl after a long hot yoga session. Quite weird to crave for something hot after a workout, but it works πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

This Shiromaru Tamago ($17.80++) is my usual Ippudo order - quite plain with the noodles, chasu, egg, black fungus and spring onion - but still satisfying. Ippudo always delivers flavourful broth (haven’t failed me yet). It may seem a bit watery on the photo but it’s still as rich as how I’ve liked it. Chasu is tender, though could be a bit more generous. Noodles are hard (as requested)

Arguably the best garlic rice I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. Omg. Haha. Worth every penny

Probably the best beef I’ve tasted so far. Melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I can’t wait to try it again

Yes, I know Ichiran is readily available in Donki, but eating the real one prepared in the restaurant is still way better πŸ₯²

Had this in the middle of a very hot afternoon. Ramen doesn’t choose any weather - good anytime, anywhere

I know Ichiran is overrated but I still really enjoy it everytime I try it. I think the hype makes it taste better too πŸ˜‚
