IPPIN CAFE BAR is Singapore’s first three-in-one concept that brings diners to a veridical Japanese home, a café and a bar. The sun-drenched space along Mohamed Sultan Road yields a comforting ambience that allows light-hearted conversations to unfold. They offer authentic home-cooked Japanese food served by Chef Naomi. It was my pleasure to try out their menu highlights— thanks IPPIN CAFE BAR for hosting us!

IPPIN CAFE BAR Miso Ramen soup

Deep Fried Oyster Set — S$24

IPPIN CAFE BAR Deep Fried Oyster Set
One of the must-tries is Chef Naomi's Deep Fried Oyster Set. The dish is pretty impressive, with a distinct briny aroma of the deep ocean where these oysters are harvested. The light coat of batter adds a welcome contrasting crispiness to the succulent fresh oysters.

Yakisoba Set — S$12

Epitomizing the Japanese home-cooked food theme is the Yakisoba. The secret of the noodles is said to lie in a closely-guarded savoury sauce. Hailing from Chiba Prefecture, this was one of my most-fancied dishes!

Grilled Oyster & Veggies in Ponzu Butter Sauce Set — S$20

IPPIN CAFE BAR Grilled oyster veggies in ponzu butter sauce set
I never knew that Hiroshima Prefecture is famous for their oysters. The oysters are grilled in ponzu (yuzu vinegar) and butter sauce for a lighter touch. The set comes with rice (with barley), Hatcho miso soup, Nikujaga pork and potato stew, salad and dessert. It makes for a well-rounded, satisfying and comprehensive meal!

I was surprised that this was served as a side-dish, because the portion was pretty huge! Onions, carrots, and an assortment of meats were mixed together here. 

Oyakudon Set — S$15

Oyakudon Set
How does a home-cooked Oyakudon set taste like? I thought there was no difference between this and what my mum cooks. I think I would appreciate this more if the chicken came in larger chunks!

Suwa Shoten Rattsu Nuts — S$8/cup

Suwa Shoten Rattsu Nuts
This cup of magical nuts turned me into a fanatic. Available in three flavours — serious coffee, creamy strawberry and grassy matcha — these Rattsu Nuts are dangerously addictive!

Salt Soda — S$8

Salt Soda
I've never liked soda, but this fizzy drink didn't disappoint at all. It wasn't overly gassy, and the sweetness was pretty light and refreshing. I sincerely hope this soda will find its way to all convenience stores so that I can grab it anytime and drink on-the-go!

Craft Beer — S$9

From left to right: Kanazawa Hyajumangoku Beer Pale Ale, Kanazawa Hyajumangoku Beer Koshihikari Ale, Kanazawa Hyajumangoku Beer Dark Ale, Granagri. If you'd like to go for a stronger beer, try the Dark Ale or Granagri. I preferred the Pale Ale, as it had a well-balanced bitterness with a smooth texture. The beer head gave off a wonderful aroma of barley as well.

All prices include GST and Service Charge. Complementary WiFi is available.
