First time back in Watami after years. Had the watami salad (+$1), bacon pizza (+$1), pork hot pot with udon, salmon carpaccio, teriyaki chicken, gyudon and salmon maki and 3 drinks.
Food was average but still good. If you are going there in groups get this set as it is pretty worth it

Warning: if you hate oysters with a passion don’t bother trying their oyster ramen.
I’m fully aware that this ramen brand is particularly famous for their shio (salt) ramen, however, I have a weakness for tonkotsu soups hence I ordered the oyster paitan which is quite similar to tonkotsu.
The broth is creamy and has an addition of oyster oil and paste. I personally loved the paste and there was a strong taste of oysters throughout the soup. The noodles didn’t have much bite to it and the arugula helped to add a different layer to the flavours. The roasted corn was sweet and had a smoky flavour while the lemon and tomato helped to mellow the strong taste of the oyster down. Their vegetables such as the onions and the corn and arugula were all extremely fresh.
It was a very unique experience that one should try if you love oysters

Found this on Foodpanda and decided to try it out. Did not regret.
Grilled beef with onsen egg with Cajun fish sprinkles on rice. First time I’m seeing fried fish skin on a donburi but wow does it work. The fish chips are extremely salty so it is best eaten with rice. But the Cajun seasoning and the crunch of the chips adds flavour and depth. Onsen egg was creamy and beef was tender. Would order again.

I stopped eating here for years but now Tampopo turns 50 so they have a promotion going on now. Got this ramen at 20% off.

Tonkotsu soup with tons of black pig Shabu Shabu, ramen egg, corn, bamboo shoots and lettuce. Ordered the spicy version but honestly the non-spicy version was better in my opinion.

I’m a sucker for tonkotsu soup so I might be biased, but this soup was just rich and creamy almost like milk. Everything else was up to par. Just a good solid bowl of ramen. Would come back again.

Potato rosti with sour cream and stir fried beef. Rosti was oily and quite soggy and not that crisp to my liking. The sweetness of the beef and the sour cream worked surprisingly well together with the Rosti.
If you are large eaters I wouldn’t suggest coming here as the portions are quite small.

Pricey but oh so good

Fun Boy 3: Black Angus beef patty, smoked applewood cheddar, roasted portobello mushroom, garlic & miso butter, double ketchup, truffle aioli, in a brioche bun. Yes please. Burger was sooo juicy and cooked so well and their sauce was excellent.

Truffle cheese fries
Fries with truffle cheese sauce, shaved truffles and truffle aioli. The truffle was strong on this one. Really good but needs to be shared as it gets a bit rich towards the end.

Naughty fries (comes in small, $9, and large, $13)
We got the small one and I deeply regret my decision. Best fries hands down. Tip: get this and dip it in the truffle aioli that comes with the truffle cheese fries. With spiced bearnaise, beef Chili, fried onions and cheese, I almost like the fries more than the burger itself.

Would come here again for the good food though, waiters were attentive and kept refilling our water and asking how was our food (maybe because it was off peak?) but would come back again

This place has been around for a really long time so it gives a sense of nostalgia especially for the older folks when you eat there.
They have a dinner menu consisting of an appetizer, main, dessert and tea/coffee.
Food is good and up to standard. The steak was cooked to the doneness I wanted, vegetables were fresh and potatoes were good.
Appetizer was a portobello salad, but the tomatoes soaked in balsamic vinegar were way too sour for me.
Dessert was a custard puff with ice cream which ends the meal well.

The meal started and ended with pu'er tea. Which is really not for everyone as it is extremely bitter. Service was good and servers were attentive.
Ordered the 3 kinds of assorted roasted meat. Came with roasted duck, roasted pork and char siew. Roasted pork was the best I have ever tasted. Roasted duck and char siew were pretty average however. I preferred crystal jade's char siew over this.
The main stars of the show were the pan fried shredded beef bun, steamed custard bun and steamed custard cake (both had salted yolk in the custard). Each basket costs ($6.80-7 each)
There is also dim sum for the kids shaped like animals such as dogs and elephants which costs $7.20 for a basket.

For $20.50 you get a cheese hamburg with beansprouts, tempura prawn, beancurd skin, tofu, rice, miso soup, access to a free flow salad bar and egg bar.
You can choose from 4 different sauces, original, demiglace, terriyaki mayo and yuzu
The egg bar has 6 different style of eggs which you can choose from. I highly recommend the omelette :)
The salad bar has everything in a typical salad bar plus some dishes with a japanese twist. There are raw vegetables as well as potato salads, noodle salads, tofu and cooked pumpkin. I highly recommend the spicy noodle salad although theres a non spicy version for those who cannot handle their spice.
The hamburg was better than the usual hamburgs, the meat was not tough inside and wheb cut open there was cheese lava because who can say no to cheese
