We were constantly intrigued by the snaking queue formed outside this shop and finally understood why when we tried it ourselves.

Their generously portioned tendon came with two large prawn tempura and an assortment of other deep fried goodness like squid, chicken breast, mushroom and vegetables. Each ingredient was lightly battered and fried perfectly till golden brown. The tempura were super crispy and goes perfectly with the sweet and savoury sauce that was drizzled over them. Coupled with the soft multi-grain rice, this bowl of tendon is so simple yet satisfying! We would highly recommend people who love tempura to give this a try. Do consider visiting ahead of the dinner time to avoid the crowd!

Located at the basement of Vivocity is this ramen shop that specialises in shrimp-broth ramen. We were impressed by the hot flavourful broth, one can definitely recognises the distinct prawn taste in every sip. Paired with thin threads of la mian, this bowl has become our new comfort food! As for the dry version, it’s more on the spicy side due to the chili vinaigrette sauce. At first try, we were taken aback by the choking taste of the chili. So, do avoid if you are not a fan of spicy stuffs. When deciding between the dumplings, shrimps and ebiko prawn paste, we would highly recommend you to give the ebiko prawn paste a try! It is super flavourful, firm and bouncy. Coupled with the ebiko bits in the prawn paste, it gives this ball of goodness a juicy bite! As the shop also offers tonkotsu broth ramen, we would most likely give it a try the next time we visit.

Just a stone throw away from the Jalan Besar MRT station is a hidden Japanese restaurant that is perfect for group gathering. At this place, you’ll have the option of cooking your own okonomiyaki or sit back and watch the chef skillfully prepares it for you. With the inner masterchef in us, of course we opted to cook it ourselves. However, it turned out to be a mess, so eventually we let the chef took over. Nevertheless, it’s still a very fun and interesting experience! We got the okonomiyaki, monjayaki and the seafood platter. The taste of the monjayaki is great but its wet and mushy texture may not be to everyone’s liking. Overall, the food served was average but the unique experience and the friendly service crews make us want to go back again.

The broth for the shio ramen tasted very light with a hint of yuzu, while the tsukemen noodle was springy and the dip was on the saltier side. Though we applaud the restaurant for the interesting and healthy concept, we felt that both dishes taste pretty average. Would probably stick to enjoying yuzu on our drinks or desserts instead.

Generous portion of rice and seafood, it’s good for sharing. Not the best we have tasted, but definitely worth a try if you are in the area. Overall, the service was good, staffs were friendly and helpful in recommending the items to order.

Ordered tonkatsu as an ala carte as we also had the seafood paella. The meat was crispy and succulent, it was a good balance between the batter and the meat. Must try for tonkatsu lovers!
