Great dish! The truffle taste was strong and lasted through the whole dish. The variety of mushrooms (button, shimeji, portobello and of course truffle :)) gave the dish a variety of flavours and textures. Especially enjoyed the portobello as it was thick and juicy but light yumss. The parmesan cheese added a nice nutty taste to the dish and cheese pulls! The dish wasn’t too “jelak” despite it being creamy. Great portion for one.

Only down side was that the rice was abit mushy for me. It could be chewier

Rating: 9/10

*this picture doesn’t do the pizza justice but I couldn’t wait to tuck in so...
Tried 2 pizzas (meat lover and burrata) and the burrata was hands down our favourite 🤩 though there wasn’t any meat, this pizza was really worth it especially with the Burpple deal. The cheese was really creamy which balanced the acidic tomato base (the burrata cheese was the only cheese on the pizza). The pesto gave the pizza a slight herbaceous, garlic nutty taste which I love!! the slight saltiness from the cheese and I think they added additional salt gave the pizza additional flavour.

Overall well balanced dish!

However, there was a long queue. Had to wait about 30min (but it’s understandable because it was a Saturday night). it felt as if the staff were tryna chase us out tho the queue died when we were halfway through our pizzas. Might not be the best place for one to have a long more than 2h meet up instead it’s more of a short dinner date.

Would rate a high rating (9/10) for the burrata pizza since it was simple but good however due to the ambience and fast paced vibe overall
7.5/10

Would defi go back tho!

Honestly speaking,, this place doesn’t give off the best first impression. Had I not know beforehand, I wouldn’t have realise that this was a Japanese restaurant.

But pass the first impressions, the beef don was really good. I mean beef, truffle and egg is such a classic flavour pairing that it can’t go wrong. The portion may look small but trust me, it is really filling. There was a right proportion of beef and rice. You can be assured that every scoop of rice is accompanied with some beef. Not just that, the truffle taste was prominent and you can taste it in every bite. The rice was done really well! It wasn’t dry and not overly saucy. The egg also adds a nice rich and creamy flavour to the dish. Comparing the Angus to wagyu, it is definitely not as tender/ melt in ur mouth but it was still very tender and the flavour of the beef was not overpowered by the sauce or the truffle.

The only con would be that the restaurant seating only has bar facing seats and no table seats because of its Omakase style for dinner. Would not recommend this place for big groups.

Overall rating:
9.5/10 :)

Highly recommend this place especially on a rainy day :) I ordered the spicy and sour soup base as well as the dry noodles with mushroom sauce and shrimp balls which came in a tomato broth!!

The soups were VERY flavourful and rich. The tomato soup was really tangy. It’s similar to minestrone but it’s thicker, slightly more Sour and has a meaty flavour. The spicy and sour soup was similar to mala soup but not as spicy and numbing and was very easy to drink. The portions were also just right.

It is affordable even without the burpple discount, $15 nett for a bowl. If you go during lunch, it’s $10 nett for the lunch set which includes a side an a drink! Would definitely go back if I’m in the area !

Had a really good time at the restaurant! The staff (esp the uncle) were friendly and the food was good too. Ordered a medium rare aust ribeye steak and Aqua Marine mocktail. The steak was cooked to perfection and it was juicy and flavourful even without it being drenched in sauce. The other components were really tasty too! Mash potatoes were fluffy and nicely seasoned, the asparagus were grilled giving them a nice roasted buttery taste and the mushrooms were juicy and had a somewhat truffle taste. My friends and I really enjoyed the dish and cleared everything on the plate!

Haven’t tried many mocktails but I would say this isn’t too bad but I would drink the tango berry in my next visit as it less sweet and has a fruity taste!

Overall rating:
9.5/10 :)
