This one was sadly a letdown.. While individual ingredients were nice, they just didnโ€™t gel together with the cream sauce which I felt was a little too thin and not creamy enough. Maybe itโ€™s in comparison to the mentaiko... If youโ€™re here, Iโ€™d say go for the mentaiko pasta for sure and if you need something to cut the taste of the mentaiko, maybe consider the omu rice which was still not bad! Orrr if you canโ€™t get enough of mentaiko, go for the mentaiko toast!!! No individual photo for that (you can see it peeking in the corner here) but it was ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

A marriage of the 2 best pasta sauces ever, honestly grateful for whoever thought of this wicked idea!!

This is one of the better mentaiko pastas out there that actually live up to its name - burst that egg yolk goodness into the creamy sauce and youโ€™ll get an even more decadent sauce exploding with mentaiko flavour!! Choice of tagliatelle or spaghetti here and Iโ€™ll definitely say choose the tagliatelle so you get more surface area to mop up all that sauce ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

$49.90 but used the entertainer app to enjoy the 1-for-1 deal ๐Ÿ˜Š

With a wide variety of dishes to choose from, including sashimi, maki rolls, grilled and fried dishes, youโ€™ll definitely be spoilt for choice! The star of the show for me had to be the sashimi which was thick and fresh with an almost melt-in-the-mouth consistency. The other dishes were average - some of the maki rolls were interesting but not the best (the sauce was kinda funky ๐Ÿ˜…) while the grilled items were good but not impressive (liked the grilled shishamo though). Overall, not bad a deal to satisfy those sashimi cravings!

Thanks to mi fwens for celebrating my birthday here ๐Ÿฅฐ

Not fantastic but at this price point ($8.50 after burpple beyond 1-for-1), YES PLEASE! The rice to aburi salmon ratio was really good - think: a whole bed of sushi rice fully covered in salmon ๐Ÿ˜‹ - while the sushi rice itself is pretty vinegary with a light taste of sweetness.

Donโ€™t expect too much of the service here though - the staff wore a black face when we requested for soy sauce :(

Waa Cow sure didnโ€™t call the mentaiko wagyu โ€˜die die must tryโ€™ for no good reason!! The amalgamation of favours from the already well seasoned beef itself with the mentaiko sauce plus the whole texture of the beef, tender and fatty at the right parts, just made me fall in love ๐Ÿ˜

The bara chirashi don was also good - the sashimi was fresh and the rice beneath was my kind of vinegary sour plus some sweetness. But if I had to choose to eat only one, itโ€™ll be the mentaiko wagyu don beyond a word of doubt.

Michelin bib gourmand unagi sure lived up to its title! The set came with a generous portion of grilled unagi on a bed of jap pearl rice, fresh wasabi for you to grate yourself, pickles, dashi soup stock, spring onions and 3 types of sauces (sweet, spicy, normal) for you to choose from!

My favourite way of eating this was to mix in a small amount of dashi soup stock and then just add a drop or two of the sweet sauce with some spring onions. I enjoyed my meal here a lot because the whole dining experience was so fun, experimenting the different ways to eat just one dish.

Pro tip: Come on a weekday for late lunch around 1-2pm and the whole restaurant will be yours!

$8 per pax after the burpple beyond!

Nothing much to rave about though, both bowls were pretty ordinary. The gyudon was tasty but lacking a sweeter note which I like for my beef bowls. The salmon sashimi don had generous slices of thinly-cut and fresh-tasting sashimi. At $8, your pocket happy, you also happy la hor, donโ€™t expect too much!

Stepping into Rakki bowl, I was immediately greeted with the aroma of truffle - I knew I HAD TO get the truffle wagyu beef bowl and it sure didnโ€™t disappoint. Haters gonna say I ate this in a very ugly way cos I stirred in the onsen egg and mixed up all the rice and beef until it looked like an indistinguishable mess ๐Ÿ˜… but letโ€™s just say this was a saucy, tasty and absolutely delicious mess.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond for giving me this mess without burning a hole in my pocket!

At $16.90, this was pretty pricey for just ramen, 2 slices of chashu and 1 onsen egg. While the truffle umami tasted not bad on the first mouthful, the flavours got pretty boring after a while and the ramen was too dry. My friend had the signature tonkotsu which was rather disappointing as well. Sadly, overhyped and I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll be back anymore :(

Super late to this tendon party but better late than never! Glad that I gave my virgin tendon experience to tendon kohaku because it was simply amazing.

I donโ€™t usually like fried food because I get gelat way too easily (haha ya I weak). But these were not too oily and the batter was light yet crispy and just addictive. I was happy that there were SO MANY ingredients, and I was most impressed with the chicken because they managed to keep it still tender and succulent. The wasabi sauce that is exclusive to the Chinatown Point outlet was also worth a try - in fact, I liked it more than the original sauce cos it gave an extra punch.

Overall, Y U M :)

With the burpple beyond 141 promo, this was just $8.50! It wasnโ€™t mind blowing but for this price point, I thought it was a rather decent bowl of chirashi with 3 types of fish and tamago. I may not come back without the promo though as it was rather small.

Tokyo Joe is conveniently located just a few minutes walk away from Kent Ridge MRT so for anyone working at NUH/studying at NUS with a sashimi craving (like meeee), feel free to hit it up ๐Ÿ˜‰
