Born out of circumstance in 2020, @sg.nozomi refers to โ€œHopeโ€ in Japanese and is a reflection of the hope that nourished and sustained everyone during the Covid pandemic. @sg.nozomi serves quality bento sets, donburi and Japanese claypot rice at affordable prices.

This is actually my first visit to @sg.nozomi but I can assure you, it definitely wonโ€™t be my last as @sg.nozomi has made itโ€™s way into my list of favourite Japanese restaurants๐ŸŒŸ!

The beef were well-executed, boasting a slight pinkish middle. While it was tender and juicy with mild smokiness, I wish that it was even more tender for greater satisfaction!

Their presentations were definitely on point๐Ÿ’ฏ! Not forgetting, they boast a wide range of sakes to complement their quality and delicious food. Feel free to hit the friendly staff up for sake recommendations! A good pairing truly elevates the dining experience and inspires moments of enjoyment and pleasure.

The delicate flavors and quality fresh seasonal offerings, coupled with attentive and friendly service definitely warrant repeat visits!

bought the Hojicha & Raspberry tarts, both were very decedent and hit the sweet spot for us! the Raspberry tart had several layers within and we especially appreciated the crunch in the bottom layer. it's a little on the sweet side though, so those with a sweeter tooth can opt for this! the Hojicha tart is less sweet but was the perfect blend of dark chocolate and hojicha. Personally I enjoyed the Hojicha tart more but both were a sinful and delightful treat!

One of the most disappointing pork ribs that we have tried. The ribs were really tough and the insides of the meat was tasteless; it was as if there was no seasoning and marinade aside from the BBQ sauce outside. We also changed the sauteed vegetables to mashed potatoes, but the mashed potatoes tasted a little too buttery for our liking and it overpowered the potato.

Thankfully, the portion of truffle fries was really decent and the fries were hot and crispy as well. The fries were really the saving grace for this dish. For $34++, it is really not worth it if you don't use a Burpple one-for-one voucher on this dish. In fact, even with a Burpple voucher, we may not want to get this dish again for future visits.

Restaurant was pretty empty on a Wednesday evening so there is probably no need to make a reservation!

Decent meal, affordably priced after burpple beyond. Pork was sweet and tender, fries good portion. Will definitely come back again.

Fun and informative truffle making session where you get to make 3 different flavours and experience a viewing of their in house chocolate making facility. Their cocoa nibs are definitely of high quality ๐Ÿคค

Wide range of menu, quite popular for a cafe nestled in Star Vista. Ordered their Dewgather Breakfast, and it was such a hearty portion - avocado toast, mushrooms, bacon, scrambled eggs. Iโ€™ll give it 3 โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ, will definitely be back to try their famous toasts and swordfish pasta!

My childhood chicken rice!! Also my favourite chicken rice. I havenโ€™t had it in a while and Iโ€™m so happy to know that it is still pretty damn good. The piping hot rice was flavourful & fragrant, but isnโ€™t very oily. I love it, even though the rice grains are broken up (I wonder if it would be nicer if the rice grains were whole, possibly making the rice more fluffy? But then again shouldnโ€™t fix whatโ€™s not broken ๐Ÿ˜›).

Chicken was tender and soft and succulent throughout - even for the chicken breast! The oily soya sauce underneath the chicken is super good, a bit salty but very tasty. The chicken is cold btw, I think they use an ice bath to stop residual heat from further cooking the chicken. I usually donโ€™t eat chicken skins bc itโ€™s mostly quite meh + unhealthy, but for this itโ€™s rly quite nice and worth the calories. Thereโ€™s the gelatinous bits under the skin that my bf likes! Iโ€™m okayish with it :x Veg was p standard, crunchy and comes with oyster sauce.

Ginger sauce is the watery sort, with minced ginger bits. It gives a nice gingery heat / spice, but idk why it was so much saltier than before. I didnโ€™t have the chili but my bf says it wasnโ€™t v satisfying.

Have been eating this when it was called sin kee during its margaret drive days, when it shifted to mei ling market, and at its present Holland drive location (it shifted stall units within the same coffee shop) and I think it remained consistently goood. Even tho I might be biased because itโ€™s my childhood chicken rice, Iโ€™m pretty sure itโ€™s objectively good (Michelin bib gourmand leh!!) :p

My personal favourite chicken joint. Moist chicken flesh even with the breast portion, slathered with the tangy and spicy peri-peri sauce.

Itโ€™s been years since Nandoโ€™s hit our shores, I havenโ€™t had anything else in the menu besides half chicken with two sides. Itโ€™s hard to try something new when youโ€™re so in love with the specialty item haha!

This isnโ€™t smoked salmon. Itโ€™s salmon flakes, possibly from a can. But I liked it anyway, and I think it matches the chee cheong fun better than smoked salmon would. The chee cheong fun is not as silky smooth and thin as the Pek Kio one, but itโ€™s smooth enough and well stuffed. Thereโ€™s a nice addition of chye poh and tobiko at the side too. Plus, zero queue.
