A very delicious and simple bowl of chicken, egg and rice for a quick lunch at the newly-renovated food court in Thomson Plaza.

The ebi and vegetables were nice, but the tempura batter was a let-down -- it was too thick, bland and not piping hot because the tempura are left on the display for a while!! Would much prefer the tempura to have been made upon order.

I was very impressed by the cheest, creamy sauce that coated the beef. It felt like an "ang moh" version of the gyu don! Beef was sliced just the right thickness and performed well as vessels for the sauce to cling on to. The additional crunch from the beansprouts enhanced the mouthfeel and flavours of each bite.

Lovely ambiance and vibes, but the food was nothing outstanding. They were not very generous with the sashimi cubes so it felt like I was eating a generic salad rather than a *poke bowl*. Still a good place to chill with friends, though!

The ikura was probably my favourite part of this dish. Otherwise, it was quite disappointing for a restaurant bearing the name of the famous Japanese fish market in Tokyo. In particular, I had expected a thicker, fresher cut of sashimi.

Genki hardly needs any introduction. I loved all the mentaiko-related sushi! However, it isn't as cheap as most people make it out to be, so I would probably stick with a Japanese buffet the next time my mentaiko craving hits. 🤤

Your usual "takeaway style" poke bowl, though it was refreshing to have a plethora of interesting toppings to choose from (think pineapple, mandarin oranges, etc.) I also liked that we can add whatever sauces we like from the sauce bar, rather than have to commit to only one type of sauce. As you can see from the picture, I liked the mentaiko sauce and avocago creme best!

Ramen in a rich duck broth - a bit too rich for my liking, but an interesting experience nonetheless.

I love every piece of tempura - the batter was very light yet flavourful. Also nice that each order of tendon comes with a serving of chawanmushi.

This was delicious, especially the torched mentai sauce enveloping the salmon sashimi slices. However, portions are a bit small.
