Well, the description is slightly...misleading! At first look, "WOW! Such huge Oysters!" was my initial thought - only because I'd expected Oysters lightly coated in batter and thereafter, breaded and fried. That was.. not the case. It's actually oyster croquette (?). I suppose minced oysters went into the batter in the making of the croquette. Slightly disappointing as I'd expected to bite into a fat, juice whole oyster enclosed within. All in all, personal expectations aside, the croquette was pretty decent - kudos to the home-made mayo-like dip with sesame bits!

Udon review
- Al-dente, springy and addictive on its own! Served with shoyu-ish dipping sauce so good that the boyfriend slurped every drop of it.

Pork Katsu (hot!)
- Quality pork katsu served with a mix of marinated onions and topped with eggylicious scramble. Tender, umami bite with every spoonful of pearly Japanese rice. Compared to the beef gyudon, the katsu bowls were comparatively larger in size and appeared to be of a bigger serving. Hms, not sure if this is true. I'd think both portions are pretty equal - given the gyudon bowl was tall and deep!

With 1-1 Burpple beyond deal, this was incredibly value-of-money (w dessert & drink). Portion size for the entire set was decent - contrary to the 'teeny' portion as noted in some reviews.

Udon

Sukiyaki Beef (hot!)
- Chewy, tender marinated beef strips mixed with onions, served on a bed of pearly Japanese rice that had been infused with beefy aroma. As a result, each spoonful was so flavourful, so umami. While the bowl seemed puny, it's pretty deep and filled to the brim!

Value for money! This set, with a full bowl of rice (bottom left), miso soup (bottom right) and a small cup of pudding for dessert (not captured) is only $12.00! Let’s zoom in on the focus here -ginger pork. Stir-fried in some special sauce and served with a side of bean sprout and bonito flakes! The side mayo smoothens the mix and adds a slight, sweet touch to the combi. Resulting effect is an incredibly aromatic crunch and chew 😋

Plenty of poppers to wash down your meal. +points for presentation!

Comes in a pretty platter in assortments of fresh salmon sushi, seared (!!!) salmon sushi + mentaiko. The sushi were crafted professionally here- as evident from the picture, the ratio of 🐟:🍚 is definitely not 50-50. Look at how each thiccc, fatty cut of salmon envelopes the cuboid of rice. The size is right for the average mouth- you can pop it into your mouth at 1 go and let the fish swim in your cavity 👄

SO-BA-D! This soba comes with a D rating, and unsurprisingly tastes SO BA-D! The noodles were too hard too have it on it’s own. Yes, you could soften it with the broth from the bowl of piping hot duck meat and duck meatball soup but it’s way too salty after the soak. The duck meat was overcooked and therefore tasted tough. It was my first time tasting a really gamey duck too! Never had a duck leaving such a bad taste in my mouth. Not sure if it’s real duck meat or a quack! Pun intended. As for the duck meatballs, it’s no different in taste from minced pork balls. Perhaps they’re minced pork instead of duck meat since there was, thankfully, no gamey taste to the meatballs. Am pretty sure this isn’t worth $16++. Never coming back to this place again!

Great appetiser with silk smooth whitebait & tofu, topped with tobiko flakes!

Can’t quite recall the paste above the sushi but it’s just another great sushi!

Comes with the Omakase lunch. Rice-to-fish ratio is perfect 👌

Ended off the meal with a small portion of udon with really clear broth and great seaweed. However, as clear as the broth was, it clearly didn’t stand out amongst the fresh sushi and sashimi which were stomached before this!
