Unpretentious Japanese restaurant with down to eart prices for good quality Iberico pork. Ordered the special promotion Pluma Pork Chop for 21.90++. The meat was grilled over Binchotan coals to give it a smokiness not possible from electric grills. The meat was juicy and flavourful, almost like a pork version of hanger steak without the chewiness.

I’ll be back to try their Dons and Tonkatsu.

Arrived at 6.15pm and already the queue was 7 tables ahead of our group. Waited for 25 mins before a table was ready. Next time I’ll just reserve a table but I notice you must still just wait in a separate queue.

Ordered Sashimi, Beef Bowl, Kurobuta Bowl, Grilled Unagi and Tempura Moriawase. Everything was presented well and fresh tasting. But more pricey than Sakuraya or any of those common sushi joints.

I’ll be back to try their Chirashi Bowls next time.

Came to try the ramen at this new place located at Newest. Ended up ordering their Yaki Shintama Don. This is a donburi with grilled piece of flank steak and onsen egg. Flank steak is more flavourful but if you over cook it, it can become very chewy. Nakama managed to get the doneness correct. And so when you mix the onsen egg with rice and the sprinkling of pickles, coupled with a generously portioned piece of flavour flank steak. You’ve got a winner.

But this means I must come back again to try their Ramen. The Aka Miso Katsuoboshi Ramen with variable spicy levels looks interesting....

Today’s thin slices of wagyu beef came with a little charring which give it a smoky taste. Not bad. The Foie Gras was an add in item and you can make it into a set that comes with a drink and salmon sashimi as appetiser. At $38, not exactly cheap but well worth the money.

I’ll be back. Again.

Somehow, the Akamaru Ramen at this outlet is not as good. I order the “Hard” noodles because I enjoy al dente noodles. My ramen was at best between Soft and Medium. Maybe that’s why this is no queue at this outlet.

I’ll skip this outlet in future.

On a wet and cold day, one of the best comfort food to have is a bowl of Japanese ramen. I like my ramen at Ippudo “Hard” so it come with more al dente bite.

One of the freshest sashimi in town. Good selection of sushi, Japanese rice bowl, ramens and udons.
