Such a comforting + affordable bowl of Gyudon (beef bowl). It had a good beef to rice ratio and sauce was really generous and tasty too! Brings back so much memories of my schooling days :p

Tried the Mentaiko Salmon Cream Omo Rice ($15.90). Rice was buttery and nicely textured, cream not too rich and jelat. Portion was huge. There was a light hint of the perilla(?) leaf that I felt complemented the creaminess of the dish. Overall would recommend.

I love anything tamago! Ordered the 5 kind dashimaki tamago skewers - Tomato, seaweed, salmon, mentai mayo and zuwaigani. An easy side to share when dining in a group. My fav was the mentai mayo. Least favorite was zuwaigani.

Love this hidden gem near bishan stadium. A nice chill place to treat yourself after a good workout! Decided to try the Salmon aglio olio ($14.90), comes with teriyaki sauce on the side. Didn't quite like the way the salmon was done but pasta was pretty tasty. My fiance got the chicken chop tomyum pasta ($11.90) instead, turned out pretty legit & flavourful - got a kick!

Pleasantly surprised by what this cafe, tucked in the middle of the bishan heartlands, had to offer - really affordable food that tasted good and friendly staff that provided great service.

This place also has wall plugs, a plus for people who are looking for a conducive space to work at! Would definitely come back again!

An unexpected find in this neighbourhood. Their price range vary from standard jap food pricing to slightly more expensive dishes. Thoroughly enjoyed the salmon sushi roll! The service was good and flexible (they served us the salmon sushi roll in 2 portions - half cooked & well done upon our request). Wouldn't mind going back again.

Morning waffles craving check ✔ Slightly disappointed with the consistency of the waffles though, could have been softer. I would recommend opting for the fluffy pancakes instead that costs $3.80 too :)

Slightly disappointed with this plate of pasta, not the best aglio olio, a tad too oily. Won't complain though for the value. We got 2 plates of pasta for $15 (there's a promo running at $15 for any 2 pasta or mains)
