These in-season sashimi were so fresh - and like the saying goes - any fresher, you’d have to catch it yourself ☺️

So when I saw “Ika Geso Karaage” (Deep fried Squid Tentacles) on the menu - I didn’t know what to expect. But I was pleasantly surprised how nice it tasted and I was glad I ordered it cos I’m usually not that adventurous when it come to trying new food...especially seafood!
.
The lightly battered golden brown squid tentacles was flavourful, mildly salty and delightfully crunchy on the outside, while tender on the inside. Served with a deep fried Shishito and a lemon wedge - this side dish would taste great either on its own, or with cold beer, or sake...!! I must add that this can be quite addictive too, and I kid you not...!!
.
So glad I tried it and Ika Geso Karaage is definitely going to be one of my favourite foods from now on...!!

Got myself a bowl of Udon in Bonito Broth with Lotus Roots, Chikuwa, Shrimp Tempuras. The Udon was decent but I was a little disappointed with the limited Tempuras choices that their had - unlike Tamoya Udon and Tempura - also a Ramen-Tempura place - located at Liang Court. They definitely have got more variety of Tempuras to choose from.

Not that business was bad for them - but the “kiasu” me wanted to beat the queue - so decided to head over just as they were about to open for business at 11:30am. I’m glad I went early coz who knows how long I would have to queue if I didn’t.
.
Anyway, since I’ve already tried their Kiwami Wagyu Sukiyaki Don before - I chose the cheaper US Prime Beef Sukiyaki Rice Bowl this time. Although the US Prime Beef didn’t give you the melt-in-your-mouth texture that the wagyu beef gave - it was still good especially when the beef was cooked to medium rare - and soaked with that sweet and savoury sukiyaki sauce. And you know what I’m going to do at my next visit - think I’ll add on more beef...!!
.
As usual, their set came with a side of handmade sesame tofu in a Dashi Ankake sauce which I really liked, an onsen egg, Aka miso soup (Red Miso) and free flow of assorted pickles.

Apparently, this is a 1 Michelin Star Ramen Store from Tokyo.
.
Since I prefer Ramen in Tonkotsu broth - I chose Tonkotsu Original Ramen. The noodles was soft and light, and the broth was rich and flavourful but the portion was a tad small. Even my 12 year-old son felt that he didn’t have enough to eat. Overall, dinner was good. However, I wasn’t impressed even though this is a 1 Michelin Star Ramen store. Personally, I felt that the Ramen from Hakata Ikkousha Ramen, located at the opposition side of Chjmes, tastes better... and you could even customise your bowl of ramen. What’s your thoughts on this...??

Haven’t been to Aburi-En before - so decided to drop in for a quick lunch there. Ordered the Butadon (Pork over Rice)...the cheapest on the menu. This donburi came with a generous portion of grilled chestnut-fed pork loin simmered in Miyazaki Yakiniku Sauce (Japanese BBQ Sauce) - giving it this sweet-savoury light glaze to the meat. The lightly grilled pork slices were tender and well marinated. The meal came with a bowl of miso soup and Japanese pickles. And since the salad only cost an additional $1.50, decided to order some leafy greens for a balanced meal. Enjoyed it. Wouldn’t mind coming again to try their other fancier donburi on the menu.

Assorted Sashimi - Any fresher and they would be swimming in the dish - anyway, this was one of the 2 mains that I got to choose from the lunch menu at the 2nd @Ishinomakigillnsake outlet - newly opened at Tras Street.
.
Create your own Teishoku by choosing 2 mains from a choice of 15 mains, 1 side from a choice of 11 sides, rice and miso soup for only $23 - only available at THIS outlet at 50 Tras Street. Excellent lunch and really value for money...!!

Felt like eating some Katsu-Don. So googled and “Katsudon Hanakatsu” came up in the search. Headed there since I’ve not been there before.
.
There were only 2 types of Katsu Don on the menu to choose from - the regular or spicy. Ordered the regular bowl with Nanatsuboshi Hokkaido Rice. Was disappointed with their service though - considering that there were only 2 customers at that time, it took them quite a while before I was served. Good thing I had my Netflix to distract me from my hunger.
.
This is not your usual Katsu Don - The bowl had 6 medium-thick crispy pork and chicken slices f fan our like a flower - on top of some eggy sauce - thinly breaded, tender, crispy and not oily at all. Not bad at all. Went really well with the free pickled radish with yuzu. I liked the picked radish so much - I probably ate 3/4 of it from the pickle jar. 😋 Regretted ordering their Miso Soup though - it tasted more like cabbage soup.

Mommy was at work the other day. As such, it’s dinner with daddy. I think my kids like this place since they didn’t protest when I suggested going there for some Katsu. We used to eat at Tonkichi but have not been there for a while after noticing that their standard and service have dropped - except for their prices.
.
Order the Ebi Furai and Rosu Katsu - crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Something that I look forward to is their free flow tonjiru soup - loved it so much I had 2 refills - and down all these with some Sapporo beer...!! And mommy missed all that...!!

Tried this Japanese Bak Chor Mee for the first time - ordered the Tokyo Maze-Soba - Udon-like noodle that was chewy and springy and topped with spring onions, chives, seaweed, Sou vide egg and a mixture of spicy minced meat and ground Saba fish. Added some Kombu Vinegar over noodles and it gave it a totally different flavour which I really liked.
.
I’m glad I ordered the regular bowl cos the portion was quite big. And as such, I shouldn’t have ordered the gyoza.

Normally I would order the Tonkotsu (pork-bone broth) ramen. Decided to order this fish-based ramen instead - Niigata Shoyu Ramen (新潟醤油らーめん) with 2 slices of Aburi Chashu, bamboo shoot, Flavoured Soft-Boiled Egg, Spinach and Nori sitting in this clear fish-based broth made by boiling chicken, pork, mushrooms and two premium niboshi (or dried sardines) for over 6 hours. The broth was rich, flavourful and intense. Something that I noticed was the ramen was served in a metallic bowl. Apparently it’s some special “keep warm” bowl produced in Tsubamesanjyo, Niigata. Interesting. Anyway, dinner was good..!

Lunch was Tendon at #donmeijinsg - the rice bowl came with 2 prawns, chicken and fish fillet, green pepper, french bean, pumpkin, and crab meat. The Tempuras were fried to perfection - and you get that crunch in every bite. The rice portion was pretty large though - was only able to eat half of it. However, the Chawanmushi that came with the lunch set was disappointing - although the texture was smooth and silky - it was a little blend - could definitely use a little more Dashi.
