The greens were fresh and crunchy, but the crabstick was a tad disappointing. It didn't taste fresh and was difficult to chew. However, the sweet sauce made a large positive contribution to the taste.
Tori Karaage Don - S$10.90
This bowl features Japanese rice accompanied by succulent chunks of chicken. drizzled with waves of mayonnaise. It's probably one of the dishes they fare better at, as the meat was white and chunky and was thoroughly marinated. It was really juicy, awesomely good!
Pumpkin Croquette - S$4.00
Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen & Gyoza Set — S$17.90
The set meal comes with Shoyu tonkatsu ramen, gyoza (6 pcs) & spicy bean sprouts. This is definitely a must-try, as the noodles soaked up the broth well and every strand was really smooth and springy. I also loved that the seaweed remained crisp even after sitting in the broth for quite some time.
The egg was great! The yolk was runny, yet it was firm on the outside. It tasted sufficiently aromatic too.
Chicken Gyoza - S$5.90
Wafu Shoyu Ramen - S$11.90 (2 pcs Char siew), $14.90 (5 pcs Char siew)
Hakata Shiro Kotteri Ramen - S$12.90 (2 pcs Char siew), $15.90 (5 pcs Char siew)
This dish featured thin noodles with Hakata Char siew, rubbery black fungus, bits of spring onion, seasoned egg and seaweed in a thick tonkotsu broth. While the noodles tasted great with it, the soup was too salty to drink on its own.
If you could pull out a handful of noodles with your chopsticks, you'd see the golden shimmer on the surface of each strand. It's really beautiful — you feel like you're eating a melting pot of gold.
Spicy Bean Sprout Salad — S$4.90
The salad was well-dressed with their special sauce. It was tossed thoroughly and had a heady combination of sweetness and spiciness, pleasantly surprising my tastebuds.
