Adding on a local twist to this dish, this soft shell crab came with chili crab sauce, which was tangy and had the right level of spiciness. It was crispy and really tantalises your taste buds.⁣

Fun Fact: Did you know the Sakae Sushi mascot, the frog, was specially designed such that the legs looked like little gold ingots?⁣

Though they were the pioneer in conveyor belt sushi, they had kinda fell off the bandwagon and got overshadowed by the abundance of sushi restaurants popping up over the years. Which was why I was rather surprised when they announced that they had actually revamped their menu as of late last year. Starting off my meal with this assorted sashimi, no doubt it was served fresh but here's a special shoutout to the aka ebi. I was taken aback by the freshness and the sweetness coming from this shrimp which was specially selected as it was bigger and sweeter than their counterparts which was what you usually get from typical casual dining jap restaurants. I can assure you, this was no 'shrimple' affair ~!⁣

Seemingly a norm in Japanese restaurants now, this Pitan Tofu is served chilled, with century egg paste drizzled over it, and the fish roe providing the dish with a contrasting bit of crunch!⁣

Was browsing through Jewel’s directory for a list of possible dining places that I probably won’t have to queue for too long, and chanced upon this curry place which brought back so much happy Hokkaido memories so I decided to go with it. Was so elated when I saw that there was no queue (cause pretty much everywhere boast a queue on a weekend), only to find out it was because of the fire alarm that went off. Apparently once a fire alarm goes off, all gas pipes are locked and restaurants can’t cook at all, so they have stopped operations for now, till management are done with investigations. So fast forward 30 minutes later, it was announced to be a false alarm and I finally got my food. The rice was in very small portion so those who are feeling particularly hungry might wanna add rice. Food overall was decent, not great. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Finally got my lazy ass to visit Konjiki, the famous shellfish broth ramen from Japan which has been awarded a Michelin Star.⁣⁣

To start off the meal, every diner is offered a bowl of complimentary Fukugawa Meshi (clam rice). This small portion of clam rice was sweet and tasty, and definitely woke up my dormant stomach for the upcoming bowls of ramen.⁣

Wasn’t feeling particularly hungry so I had some snacks instead of the famed ramen. The char siew was surprisingly tasty, with the meat being so tender and cholesterol-inducing-fatty, you can’t stop at just a piece! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

The standard of their garlic fried rice seem to have dropped a little. It used to have this slight charred taste but it still taste good nonetheless, I mean you can’t really go wrong with garlic, can you? Unless, you’re out on a date then please no, don’t order this dish HAHAHA

Back here again in a month and instead of the Pork tonkatsu, I decided to go for prawns this time round and my taste buds couldn’t be more impressed. At first bite, this prawn is a crispy golden batter but at the same time, really tender and fresh. Paired it with the mustard and mayo at the side and it gives off a different taste. Since the soup is free flow, I kept requesting for top ups because it was too good and comforting in this cold weather!

Soup curry was pretty mediocre, did not enjoy it as much as I expected it to, but the portion was pretty big. Decent enough to try just once in my opinion.

An extremely value for money lunch bento set consisting of 5 yakitoris - chicken with leek, chicken meatballs, quail eggs, pork seasoned with garlic and lady’s fingers wrapped with pork; along with minced meat, mushrooms and seaweed spread over a thin layer of rice, some vegetable sticks and miso dip as well as a bowl of miso soup. The skewers were grilled to order and filled with smoky fragrance and a slight burnt crisp. Definitely one of my go to places for affordable lunch yakitori bento!

Battered and fried, yet tender and juicy within, Ma Maison’s tonkatsu has officially become my favourite place to go to when I’m craving for a good plate of crunchy and juicy pork cutlet. Paired it with the curry rice and it makes for a very satisfying meal indeed. They also serve up a mountain of cabbage which is free flow, miso soup, and a small plate of jelly as dessert which makes the meal pretty value for money!

The gyoza was served piping hot and on first bite, I was rather disappointed as I thought it wasn’t particularly impressive. Still made for a good side dish, nonetheless.
