Flamed Shabu Beef ($7.90) • Ordered in advance with the @eatsyapp.co application so I could collect it right after my class. No time wasted at all 👍🏻👏🏻💪🏻 ordered mine with cha soba and sauce by the side - the beef and mentaiko was so flavourful you actually don’t even need the sauce - a must eat if you are rushing for classes or meetings • #instagood #chope #hungryeatwhat #hungryeatwhere #foodie #foodiesg #hungrygowhere #chope #entertainerapp #sgfood #burrple

Expected Yama-ya’s chazuke to be of the same standard as the one we had at Nobu-ya, but this wasn’t as memorable. Broth tasted much lighter even after mixing in the mentaiko and fresh wasabi. ☹️ Probably needed a lot more metaiko to bring out the flavour. Skip this here and try Nobu-ya’s!


Easily my favourite izakaya appetiser of all time. I just love how intense the fermented flavour is!


Fail-proof appetiser - fresh chunks of tako mixed in with wasabi!


If you having their sushi for the first time please try this! It is really good.

The mango really goes well with the ebi.

I have eaten their curry items before so decided to give it a try for the rest.

They do have unagi don which cut into pieces, together with the egg and rice. Of course it might not the best you can have but it is still worth trying.

This is a very small eatery located inside Sunshine Plaza, with only a few tables inside the shop.

Come during lunch time for their promo of $9.90 and above, which you get a main or rice comes with egg and drink.

Decent ice cream but would prefer the guava sorbet to the baileys (no baileys flavor at all).

I’m not sure why they charged me at S$4.90 each instead of S$4.20 for premium ice cream flavor as stated at the menu.

The cup is definitely as big as my hand. Huge portion for a $6.70 2 scoops ice cream compared to other dessert shops. What’s more, it’s a 1 for 1 deal! Each spoonful of ice cream is extremely flavorful and melts instantly in your mouth.

Didn’t expect to be served with a packet of mochi ice cream 😂 Maybe better if they served it unwrapped? Ice cream itself was actually not bad, but too pricey when you can get something similar for half the price at Chateraise.
