Visited on a weekday night to try out their offers and was pleasantly surprised. Tried out a variety of dishes: we had the grilled squid, sliced beef marinated in ponzu sauce, grilled green chilli peppers, kurobuta skewers, vingered grilled fish, as well as the beef tongue.

My personal favourites were the beef tongue and the beef marinated in ponzu sauce. The beef tongue was grilled very nicely and melted in your mouth like it should. As for the beef marinated in ponzu sauce the flavours of the ponzu really compliments the char of the grilled beef and it would have made a very tasty starter paired with sake. A dash of tobiko on top gave it that extra mouth feel and crunch.

Liked the food and would drop by again to try out their sake offerings.

Tried Meadesmoore for the first time, located just 2 mins walk away from Telok Ayer MRT. Had the burrata and tomatoes as side dishes- both tasted exquisite, especially the grapes with perfect char. The tomatoes were fresh, juicy, and a great pairing with steak. My partner and I tried the flat iron steak, which tasted absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Would recommend the place for birthday celebrations, or just a romantic dinner out with your partner.

Lunch Deal ($17) included 8% GST and 10% Service Charge

Miso Mushroom Noodles, Veggie Mandu and Sparkling Water

Finally I got the chance to try this since last year but I was slightly full to eat so I passby the area and decided to hop in for lunch deal instead. They got a variety of dumplings to choose from the menu but the noodle and drink wise got less choice as their specality was dumpling. I wanted to try their special dumplings like fried pierogi's high recommended for people also but I just stick usual ones such as original or veggie. Veggie Mandu just slightly oily for me and also their sauce already dipped with dumplings while serving. But the fillings inside the dumplings got a lot of ingredients and just nice for the serving. Miso Mushroom Noodles I felt in my opinions like dry noodle with mushrooms and meats but people was really high recommended for this. I almost cannot eat noodle finish as the sauce for the noodle was a bit strong taste for me. I just stick to their dumplings instead of their noodles tbh next time.

It’s not written on their vouchers but the 1 for 1 voucher is only applicable for dinner (which is incredibly frustrating and should be written on the vouchers)

Got the sourdough toast with herbed butter, grilled pork sausage, roasted mixed mushroom and a couple of poached eggs for the ultimate brunch out. And it’s to safe, I polished the plate clean.

Visited Shukuu Izakaya last night, it is conveniently located near telok ayer mrt. We ordered a variety of dishes, and some of my favorites are their Gyu ponzu - beef slices marinated in ponzu sauce topped with some ebiko; grilled surume squid - the dish came out hot and the the squid was grilled to perfection, the chew was just right; gyu tan (beef tongue) - don’t knock it till you try it! It was cooked well and so very flavourful! Would have ordered another portion if I had more stomach space! Will definitely be back to try more of their dishes and their sake pairing!

After seeing the review of 4.8 star in Google, decided to give it a try.

I ordered the All Star Plate and change toast to pancake ($14.90+$1.90) & Duck on Mash ($19.90).

The potato was not bad. However, the egg was watery which kind of disgusting.

The Duck Confit which apparently cooked for 9 hours seems to be more like oven baked for 9 hours instead. It was hard and dry.

I saw on the table that state if you do Google Review, you get free cocktail or beer. I guess the reviewers wrote Google reviews for the sake of the free drinks.

Wouldn't be coming here anymore.

18 Robinson might be that building that looks like there is nothing much going on within — a building that pretty much blends into its surroundings looking much like an office tower that houses the offices of Singlife, as well as the well-known Barry’s Singapore that would sound familiar to the gym rats. Little did we know that the space actually houses an F&B establishment — got to know about the new Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki that had recently opened in the building. Located at level 3, Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is located right beside Barry’s Singapore — conveniently situated just by the walkway adjacent to the escalators leading up to the level, Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is fairly easy to find once one is at that level. Turns out, Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is a franchise of Shimono Ishiki in Nagoya, Japan which is described as a “fisherman-style restaurant franchise” according to the Nagoya Convention & Visitors Bureau website. Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is decked in a pretty simple design theme; while the wooden furniture and fittings especially around the counters exudes a Japanese vibe, the establishment otherwise features the use of simple wooden tables as well as that of metallic chairs in brushed metal or yellow paint — simplistic, yet tasteful at the same time. Opened for both lunch and dinner service, the staff did inform us that they do serve a different menu for dinner, and that dinner service on weekends are strictly on a by-reservation basis only — did not manage to see the menu that it offers for dinner service, though the lunch menu comprises of a decent variety of Donburi, Curry Rice and Handa Somen options to choose from.

Considering how Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is an establishment that is more focused on their seafood offerings, we found ourselves going for the Ishiki Anago Don after skimming through the menu which they offer for lunch when we made our visit during a weekday lunch service. A Donburi that features Anago (i.e. salt-water eel), the Ishiki Anago Don comes with three slices of salt-water eel, Kyurizuke (i.e. Japanese cucumber pickles), Seaweed Nori and half of a Hanjuku Egg. All lunch sets also come with a bowl of Miso Soup and a small plate of salad by the side. Digging into the Ishiki Anago Don, we liked how the salt-water eel was pretty plump and full of flesh — the Anago also did not feel particularly boney or scaly; very easy to eat. Brushed with a bit of sauce that provides a hint of sweetness, we liked how balanced that sweetness felt; nothing too overwhelming like how some more commercial Unagi Dons would have felt, whilst also retaining a hint of smokiness from the grilling process that made it so good. The short-grain rice beneath was also cooked well; just sticky enough, yet also drenched with just a little bit of sauce (possibly from the Anago) that helps to flavour it up just by a bit that made it easier to have. The Seaweed Nori added a hint of umami factor to the rice, while the Kyurizuke provided a good crunch and a tang that refreshes the tastebuds from the Anago and the rice. Despite looking a little dry, the Hanjuku Egg does come with a molten yolk; pretty much a crowd-pleaser considering how it does seemed to have marinated in soy sauce for some flavour. Meanwhile, the salad served on the side interestingly comes with both red and green cherry tomatoes; comes drizzled in a Goma dressing for flavour. The bowl of Miso Soup comes with kelp; the soup providing a refreshing respite from the Donburi while the kelp adds on to the umami factor here.

Considering how Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki is a franchised outlet here at 18 Robinson, it is a shame that there is a little bit of shift in the focus of the fare served at Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki that seems to have strayed away from its roots such as the Whale Miso Hot Pot — something which Shimono Ishiki seems to pride themselves for in Japan. That being said, the item would have been a little controversial to be sold locally; perhaps more of a conservative move by Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki especially considering how one would not be able to predict the receptivity from the masses of such a dish in the local context. The lunch menu at Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki may seem limited in variety, though the types of dishes served seems to cater to a wide variety of taste buds — those whom prefer raw fish / sashimi can go for the Ishiki Kaisendon, while those whom prefer noodles can also opt for the Handa Somen with Karaage / Tempura. The price range of the dishes offered on the lunch menu can also be said as pretty reasonable for a Japanese establishment — the lowest priced item on the lunch menu is priced at $12, while the highest priced will be the Ishiki Kaisendon at $25. The quality of the Ishiki Anago Don was also truly impressive for its price at $20; one that we felt was especially well-executed and made it seem rather value-for-money. Overall, Fishmonger Kitchen Shimonoishiki does seem quite like a hidden gem; one that perhaps would not be quite known unless someone actually makes their way up to the building which it is located at; perhaps a new haunt for some quality Japanese fare at a decent price point for office workers around the Central Business District!
