Went for the weekday lunch buffet and food was good (as usual!). We had the sukiyaki broth and tonkotsu broth. Sukiyaki was very sweet and flavorful (my fave!) But the tonkotsu is quite lackluster - salty and not much flavor on it's own.

Meat wise, the beef and chicken here is very good! For the pork, I think Sukiya is better haha. But the vegetables selection here is AWESOME. It's the reason why I keep coming back to Shabu Sai hahaha. Especially love their SWEET OAT lettuce. So fresh and crunchy but yet slightly sweet. Also really like their Tsukune option too. In addition, appreciate that they also have a rotational seasonal vegetables selection every month (2 per month iirc).

Overall, great meal and very worth ;)

Super long queue on a Friday evening (queued for around 30minutes) but Keisuke Ramen never disappoints!

Rich tonkotsu broth with warm silky ramen... Absolutely delectable πŸ˜‹ the price point at this branch is also really affordable with ramen starting from 9.90++

We ordered the normal tonkotsu ramen + all the topups (15.90++, pictured) and the Red Spicy Ramen ($10.90++). The free flow hard boiled eggs and もやし (beansprouts) sweetened the experience even more!

Will definitely be back!

We saw many people having the omu rice when we entered the food court and the portion is huuuuuge! Super worth it because the curry chicken katsu omurice (pictured) is only going at $8.30! They also have other katsu options like pork and fish which is slightly pricer at $9+ but still pretty worthwhile for such a big piece of katsu.

The udon was quite meh ($8.90) and portion wise quite small. Not worth it.

As the meal was quite sinful, we decided to order a bowl of YTF ($5.25) to supplement our daily greens. Pretty standard and normal - hard to go wrong really.

Really like Bishan food junction as there are so many food options here. Will definitely be back to try new food :)

Very worthwhile bento set as there's a lot of components haha. Everything was good! The chicken is perfectly seasoned and coated with the teriyaki sauce, warm fluffy rice as well as smooth melts-in-your-mouth chawanmushi! Was very impressed with the chawanmushi as they included salmon roe and edamame. Thumbs up!

I really love hotpot and was delighted to know that Eatigo have a 50% off for Saturday evening!

The slot was for 5pm and the restaurant was pretty empty at that time. We were given a window seat so it was pretty awesome :) we chose sukiyaki and shabushabu as our soup base and also went started with 1 each of their meat (pork, beef, chicken)

The vegetables bar was quite okay. They have notably more processed ingredients like cuttlefish ball, nacho cheese ball and seafood tofu as compared to Shabu Sai but the latter have greater selection of fresh vegetables and mushrooms.

Ice cream is also included in the dinner buffet but sadly, we have to top up 1.90++ for plain water (same price as free flow soda fountain) as the water is dispensed from the same machine. There is also a limit of 90minutes but the waiter closed our bill (no more meat orders) and allowed us to stay longer than the allocated time. Overall, value for money if using eatigo but comparing usual price to usual price, shabu sai wins hands down as the fresh produce selection is way superior.

Beef was tender, shrimp was okay but the udon and broth is very forgettable... Would rather pop by Idaten Udon a few minutes away for decent udon UwU

We wanted to give Ramen Champion another go after a disappointing meal last year but standards did not improve.

Ordered the Go to Hell ramen, Tom Yam cheese ramen as well as a beef daikon side. Although the spicy ramen ($14+) is really spicy (and this is coming from someone who eats Samyang 2x noodles without breaking a sweat), it's not very flavorful. The Tom Yam ramen ($16+) also had a weird after taste. Beef Daikon portion was also very miniscule and it costs $7.90+. Not worth it at all.

Save your calories, save your money and give this place a miss.

Got to know of this place through Food King and I totally see why they are foodking good.

The portions of poke were humongous haha very worthwhile! I ordered beef cubes, spicy salmon, tofu skin (which is actually inari!), edamame, chuka wakame and almond with brown rice.

The beef cubes were soft and tender whereas the salmon was so fresh and firm. The toppings were also fantastic - love the inari!!

However, they only have bar seats though ): wish they have lower seats haha but it doesn't hurt the overall experience - just a good to have.

Highly recommended :)

Price: 6/10
Service: 6/10 (as mostly self service)
Food: 9/10
Ambience: 6/10 (would be better to have a mixture of seatings)

Overall: 8/10 - totally would be back again and again

Wanted to visit Gangsta Ramen for quite some time now and eatigo 30% + $5 Eatigo voucher finally motivated us enough to give this a try!

Getting to this place was quite a feat as Google maps pointed us to the side entrance of the complex when we could have entered from the front... After arriving, the place was very empty 😲 okay fair enough, it's a Saturday afternoon so probably that's normal since it's a CBD area.

We couldn't find anyone upon entering and only after a few repeated hellos did a middle aged server came out to greet us. She honored the Eatigo deal without questions and proceeded to explain what is included in the discount. After we made our order, we have to make payment first, which comes up to ~$18.

We ordered the Spicy Ramen ($12), Cheese Ramen ($12), Torikatsu ($2.50), Smoked Duck ($2.50) and 2x Hot Green Tea ($1.50 each). Only the drinks were excluded from the discount.

The good:
βœ” Springy Ramen
βœ” Soft and Melty Char Siew
βœ” Torikatsu was SO GOOD - Crispy outside moist inside

The not-so-good:
❌ Broth was on the lighter side, quite forgettable
❌ Spicy paste has a very gamey/porky smell which I found quite unpleasant
❌ No seaweed & also not in menu even as an add on

Overall: probably would not visit again as it's quite a normal bowl of noodles (I wouldn't really call it Ramen since the broth is really not up to standard). But if you're there, please give the Torikatsu a go. It's only $2.50 and it's soooooo good β˜‘

The dish is tasty and I must say the mentaiko here is done really well. However, the portion size for the burpple beyond set is really tiny. Feels more like an appetizer rather than a main. Decent food but unless they revise their portion size, not coming back.
