Loved this no frills dish with the best ingredients. Funny how we have no qualms having a near $50 dish out of a cardboard container #onlyinCB

Only available at the great world city outlet, this great ramen was out of this world. The broth was superb; rich, creamy and a total umami bomb. Ramen places here should really start experimenting with such ingredients.

The only thing that brought me here was the booth dining, for the sake of reliving my Ichiran experience back in Japan. Sadly the ramen here was nothing to shout about with the broth being rather one-dimensional. Also didn't expect the cheese ramen to come with literally a slice of cheddar cheese.

Dont be deterred by the price at first glance. This bowl comes with a medley of premium ingredients: bluefin tuna otoro, hokkaido uni, negitoro and minced tuna. Everything was fresh and tasty, making this a super value for money bowl. Niningashi is a gem of an izakaya you don't want to miss out on.

They claim to be Japan's number one mazesoba, and if so, this can't be their original standard. When I have noodles, there's only 2 things I focus on and that's the noodles and the sauce. The noodles could do with a bit more spring to the bite and they could've gone easy on the oil in the sauce. But still quite an affordable filling option for dinner out.

Have been back multiple times for one of the best quick fixes in this high SES neighbourhood. Service is quick, decor is basic and food is no frills yet hearty. The tuna was fresh enough although I prefer their salmon dons which come with nicely seared salmon cubes.

The salmon had a sous vide texture and just undercooked to retain a nice moist and oily texture. Mentaiko tamago was great too - cut in thick slabs and topped with heaps of mentaiko mayo.

Really mediocre for its price. Portions weren't generous. Fish wasn't the freshest. You can get a much better chirashi don at one of the many other more popular Japanese restaurants nearby. Just give it a miss.

Prawn tempura maki with mentai mayonnaise. And fluffed up with cookied prawns, caviar-lookalike, tempura batter bits and some other yummy unidentifable stuff. A feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, if you'd ignore that hefty pricetag. Definitely my favourite dish of the day.

Despite being one of the pricier items on the menu, this was quite a letdown. Salmon dons were still as yummy and good value though. Service was bad as usual and they only allowed us to use burpplebeyond once although four of us ordered four items.

Yummy runny eggs blanketing tomato-flavoured rice. A fan of this just cos im a big fan of eggs. While the mentaiko pasta may seem like a nugatory side just there to fill the plate, it was actually pretty decent with a nice al dente bite and gentle mentaiko flavours. With the combo you get a choice side salad as well (p.s. potato salad was the best).

Tastes as good as what you'd expect at an upmarket japanese restaurant, but at a fraction of the price. Came with salmon, tuna, scallops, sweet prawns and a tiny piece of uni, all so fresh it took my back to those days in Japan.
