Cooked from raw grained to fully cooked rice within 30mins. The chef measured the prefect ratio of stock and timing for this perfectly cooked rice. It was interesting to watch and eat but for $12 I need to think again.


One of our favorite order. The soba was rather short in length which made it pretty easy to pick up and dip into the soba sauce. As you slurped the soba, the hint of buckwheat could be taste at the back of the palate. .
Limited 30 quantity per day. Do remember to ask for soba water to add into the sauce and drink like a soup.


When we first entered zipang, we were welcome by the bar counter which unlike many Japanese restaurants. Their menu was rather confusing and they sold beer by towers. .
So after flipping the menu number of times, we decided to go for a safe choice - sake clam soup. Nice clear soup with a hint of seafood sweetness.

After reading a post from my foodie friend, I decided to drop by for a taste. Having trouble to find the right starter as nothing jumped out to me. So I ordered this. .
Mixed veg tempura. Something simple. Clean taste with thin batter.


The Chirashi don comes with the usual assortment of fishes that you'll expect. The rice was served warm, similar to how the Koji guys do it. Not sure if which temperature is legit, but it sure was comforting on a wet week night. A good option if you're ordering a few dishes to share.


There's a lot on the extensive menu at this Somerset newcomer, but it's the quality of their Chirashi ($25) that bowled us over. Located at the front entrance of Hotel Chancellor @ Orchard, Zipang Japanese Dining Bar is helmed by three Japanese chefs, so you know your food is in good hands. Unlike other places where the chirashi can be a main, the one at Zipang is just enough for you to taste how fresh their ingredients are, but not so filling that you can't have other items. We reckon that the well-marinated cubes of sashimi on a bed of fluffy rice, topped with whitebait, makes a strong contender against Teppei's chirashi! For something heartier, order their specialty Crab Zipang Kama Meshi ($12) — traditional Japanese rice cooked in a small pot with generous chunks of crab meat and mushrooms. It takes 30 minutes to cook, so order this first before anything else. While waiting, the Deep-fried Eggplant in Special Sauce ($5) and the Asari Saka Mushi ($12) are both great for sharing.
