Garlic lover will enjoy this one a lot. Although we can’t notice the fried garlic on top, we notice the oil from fried garlic. Thick noodle make this a bold bowl! Houji tea hot $1.90 + 10% service charge and 7% GST (around $15 Per Pax)

Boiled pork belly and kimchi are the highlights of this ramen. We go for ala carte (no side dish) but feel full afterwards (nice portion). It comes with half boiled egg.

There are 6 pieces but our chopstick skill is better than photo taking skill. 😆 Chijimi is a spicy pancake (think Buchimgae or Korean pancake) We do enjoy the taste but not quite sure as it supposed to have no dipping sauce on the side. The soya sauce & chilli oil on our table wouldn’t go that well as the dipping.🤔

This item is in their ‘Kagurazaka Saryo’ lunch menu (Mon-Fri) from 11:30 am to 5 pm.
.
Cha-Nabe allows you to pick between Japanese rice OR housemate udon. It doesn’t come with side dish but include Houji Tea. That’s why we order Osaka lunch set in earlier post (so we can share a side dish)🤘
.
The salmon texture is too soft for our liking and make us pondering on the quality. The broth is light and flavourful. We think this eatery (same chain like Ajisen) offers quite a wide choice with good price point. Skip this salmon set and check out other sets for your experiment! 😁

Hidden at the side of Junction 8 mall, we wouldn’t come across them if it’s not because of their neighbour (Singtel shop). 📲 The menu here looks affordable and tempting. We order this ’Osaka lunch set’ which comes with a soup, side dish (we pick Chijimi 👉 another post) and houji tea.
.
The noodle is a fine type very well coated with sauce. Some might prefer to pour the soup but we like the intense flavour of sauce goes well with pork belly and black fungus. 🍄

Another weekday lunch place if you are in Bishan area. Good service with quiet corner for talking and catch up.👌

We ordered this purely because we love lobsters. It is not a hard choice when comparing against the other 2 sushi rolls (Unagi salmon roll & Salmon mentai Roll). 😚🦞
.
According to the menu, we should have Lobster salad, fried crab stick, avocado, cucumber, flying fish roe & mayonnaise. We hardly detect lobster in the roll but the strip of cucumber at the top make each roll so refreshing that we forgot to ask where your lobster friends are!!😜
.
P.S. we think what keep people coming back to this place is its ambience (private sofa seating) & friendly service. However, $$wise, we think there are better valued & yummier Japanese eateries in town. 💁‍♂️💁‍♀️🐡 (Total spending: $50/2 pax)

Kaisen Don is one type of well known ‘Chirashi Sushi’. The difference lies in the rice (kaisen use steam rice instead of vinegared sushi rice used in Chirashi Sushi). 🤓
We can notice typical toppings in this Kaisen Bara Don (Osaka version): salmon, tuna & swordfish sashimi, egg, cucumber. We ordered 2 sets and each set comes with miso soup.
.
Just feel that the set lacks some exciting ingredients (we have seen all these sushi toppings before) and some seasoning in rice (maybe avocado cube might help) to match up with price tag. Having said that, this is a healthy set and will suit someone who loves clean eating!! 💚💪

The 20% off promo is back! and we can’t miss it!! Have to admit that we love collecting their cute Roll box. 🤩 So tempted to play around with animated video on their website but we are very focused to get our dinner. 😄 We skip the play and proceed to order on their bio link on IG.
.
The California dreaming has got avocado, tamago Yaki (omelette), crab stick, ebiko (prawn roe), edamame bean, shredded carrots, cucumber. The combo is tasty & (a bit) healthy. Wish they go easy on mayo though as it could go rather sweet.
.
Note: 20% off is for self pick up takeaway using their code “20OFF” (enjoy this while it lasts) 👌

We are no cheapo!! Although we normally feature cheap & good food around Singapore 😜 and so this bowl my foodie pal decide to go slightly off the track & enjoy what seems to be the yummiest on their menu. BBQ Chicken flavour udon in large size!! 😄📢
.
The udon noodle is served not in the broth but immersed in spicy sauce with fried chicken cube and chicken minced. When you have this with onsen egg, the flavour combination is so yum! 🤤
.
We will keep both receipts and come back to enjoy donburi with $1 off next time! Let us stick to our mantra that “good food doesn’t need to be expensive! “ 👌😆

When you want to eat good, no frill food but wallet friendly before your movie in Orchard, the choice at Orchard can overwhelm you plus a dramatic event might unfold when you are there. 😆
.
Our movie “Terminator: Dark fate” starts at 7:30 pm and we got 30 mins to complete the mission! 😎 At first the future looks pretty grim as this Marugame Udon got no seat and queue. 😭 We went up to browse other choices but it’s raining. We went back again & restaurant is now less crowded (in short 2 mins)
.
We use $7.50 Fave deal and got “Sweeten Tofu pocket Udon in Bonito Broth” + “Karaage chicken” + “Barley”. Add condiments you like ie. Ginger, wasabi, Tempura sauce at the counter. The choice is yours! The udon got nice texture with light Bonito broth. Tofu pocket are sweet & yummy although chicken Karaage could be better but the deal is as good as it can get!!👌
.
P.S. keep the receipt to enjoy $1 discount on udon or donburi in your next visit 🤑 (this discount is valid all day except PH & cannot be used on the same day)

We checked out ‘Visit Kochi Japan’ at Harbourfront Center before our lunch and grab this cup to try for some sweet treat. Kochi is famous for its Yuzu (sour & refreshing taste) and this Yuzu sorbet might be so tiny but really worths it.
We can even notice the Yuzu skin in the bottom of ice cream cup. 🍋 🍋 🍋
Give it a try if you drop by to the event. Also if you grab 2 cartons of Marigold Peel Yuzu 1 litre ($3.20 each), you will get a cooler bag & a Japanese bowl. We are quite hesitant on that (due to sugar level) but gotta admit that it is an attractive deal! 🥺

Unlike other obanyaki we used to have, this ‘mochi’ obanyaki or Oyaki has the soft & oh so bouncy white bun (as shown in our knife video in IG story).😍 We reckon that this must be another Hokkaido specialties (the ones we are in love so far are Soft serve ice cream, Royce chocolate, Yubari Melon and Sapporo Ramen).🍜
.
We grab mochi obanyaki before lunch time when it is not too crowded (3 pcs for $10). They come with sweet fillings: purple sweet potato, Hokkaido Melon & red bean. Although you can opt for other fillings like Mao Shan Wang durian, salted egg etc.🤤
.
The not so sweet bun with more than ample fillings is so chewy & addictive. Yet we finish them so fast!!. The sales staff told us that it can be kept up to 2 days. We found the obanyaki tastier to warm 2 mins at 180 if you can’t eat at the spot.
.
Tips: if you just wanna try one, go for Hokkaido Melon filling (sweet but the texture & aroma from Hokkaido Melon can’t simply be missed! )👍
