The gyoza here deserved a special mention. Definitely different from other gyozas out there. So small and crispy! The sweet radish sauce/condiment was also really good.

First time here, and this may be one of the better ramens in Singapore. Or maybe I haven’t had proper ramen straight out of the kitchen and to my table in a while! What I love is that you can also customise almost every aspect of your ramen like the spice, garlic, vegetable, noodles and flavour.

I like my broth thick and heavy, so I went for heavy for most of what I could choose. It resulted in a very solid ramen, with a lot of spring onions and black fungus. Level 2 spice definitely lended a subtle heat to the ramen. Noodles wise, I expected to be a bit firmer since I chose hard as an option. I also added an egg, but sadly it wasn’t as runny as I wanted it to be.

Would return to try their other flavours like squid ink+garlic and basil!

With only 2 options in the menu, I went with the regular tendon that contained meat like chicken, fish and squid ($20+ with service charge & GST). Wasn’t as crispy as I hoped for and the spicy sauce was meh. I would rather go for the original sauce next time. I liked the grain rice and Yuzu ginger on the side though. Compared to Tendon Ginza Itsuki at Tanjong Pagar, I felt the latter was better.

I liked the flavour of the tempura! Also appreciated that they didn’t drown it in sauce and they have a separate sauce bottle for you to choose how much sweet tempura sauce you want to put in. Enjoyed my meal and will be back again! The one downside is the lack of options, as the menu only gives you 2 options: this special tendon and the vegetable tendon. If only they had more options and combinations of tempura!

Sliced wagyu beef marinated in sukiyaki sauce on a bed of rice. Nothing special, and didn’t strike me as wagyu quality. Including service tax and GST, this came up to a whopping $28 which was quite pricey.
But I was served with complimentary sprite-like drink, which was appreciated because the sukiyaki sauce is quite sweet and needed to be washed down.

As a salmon lover I liked this don! Torched, sliced and mentaiko salmon all in one delicious bowl. The rice was also not overly vinegar-ed (like so many other places) and had some seasoning in it which lended some flavour to the whole bowl.

We also tried the foie gras truffle yakiniku don, and I didn’t like the foie gras, wasn’t seared very well and felt too buttery/raw - maybe not my preferred texture type. The beef was okay, nothing to shout about. But my experience was marred by the foie gras, so I’d wanna try their normal yakiniku don next time.

Delicious, but a tad too much pepper for my liking to be honest. Also I think I can do without the mentai as well.

From left to right: marbled beef ($6.80), sweet pork ($2.80) and chicken thigh ($2.80). All very well marinated, juicy and magnificently tender. The skewer portion was unexpectedly large as well!

Pricey, but pretty good. Quinoa is well flavoured and tastes like actual chicken rice RICE, and the sous vide chicken was soft and tender. Very healthy indeed, as I needed a lot of chili and ginger (which they provide at the side) to eat the chicken with.

Yummy sushi rolls that come in a variety of protein like chicken, tofu, vegetable pickles, fish...

Loved the tenderness of the pork! The Japanese sauces (which I almost decided to purchase cause it was that good lol) provided at the table was also a really really good accompaniment for the pork and rice, as the pork is only lightly seasoned so the original flavour comes through (as it should be). And for iberico pork PLUS a Tamago egg, the price was quite worth it as well.

I’ve heard a lot about this place, supposedly the go to place for most people for mala. Sadly I was slightly disappointed! The food was more oily than most mala places and the flavour was also nothing to shout about. The Aunty picking the vegetables for you was also a little rude, which made the ordering experience a bit unpleasant.

My favourite men is ramen
