Yakiniku-GO Plus – Premium Wagyu at Competitive Prices
A piece of grilled Wagyu on a nugget of steamy Japanese rice is one of those things I really enjoy. So, the recent appearance of casual Yakiniku restaurants like Yakiniku Go is a most welcomed addition to the ever-growing local Japanese food scene.
If you are a regular at NEX like us, you'd be delighted to know that the old Shokuten at B1 has just been transformed into &JOY Japanese Food Street which features 8 dining concepts in a single location. These are mainly fast service restaurants where you can enjoy an authentic Japanese meal, from as little as $8.80++!
You may recall that I wrote about Jin Fine Dining back in 2014 when they first opened. At the time, Chef Thomas created quite a buzz with his $80, 8 course set menu which featured everything you'd look forward to eat at a Japanese restaurant for one great price.
By @FeiEats When my friend invited us for a meal at her sister’s newly opened Izakaya, we certainly weren’t expecting Ippai to be a modern and sleek restaurant located at Dorsett Residences. The place looked expensive, but we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the prices were not too bad and more importantly, there were […]

&JOY Dining Hall: Hidden Gem Japanese Dining at Great World
Tucked in a remote corner of the newly renovated basement of Great World is a hidden gem which you might easily miss when you are hunting for something to eat. It is located where the old food court used to be, but is now a smaller, cosier space which has been turned into a Japanese Dining Hall.
Botan Japanese Restaurant: Chef Thomas’ Special Signature Set!
Fans of veteran Chef Thomas Kok will know that our gallivanting chef has moved five times since I first wrote about him at Hokkaido sushi in 2011. And, I am not even his oldest fan, I’ve even met customers who have been following him since his Nanten days in the 80′s! Having been in the […]
Tendon is one of those things that I love to eat. It ranks up there with Hokkien mee, pizzas and hamburgers as one dish wonders whose craving can be satisfied without having to spend too much! When it comes to tendon, my gold standard has always been Tenfusa in Tsukiji market (now in Toyosu). I […]
Roketto Izakaya: Wild Rocket is back, and more relaxed!
I have always enjoyed Izakaya style dining. After a long day at work, it's nice to unwind with a drink and some tasty side dishes. Everytime I eat at a Izakaya, I wonder why we can't have a Singapore version where we can order small dishes with local flavours. It would be a great place to bring overseas guests, don't you think?
Unagi has been very popular in the last few years ever since Man Man introduced their hitsumabushi at Keong Siak Road. With queues resembling the eels themselves, other live unagi restaurants like Uya and Unagiya Ichinoshi quickly emerged to cash in on the action. As this segment of the food scene matures, new players need to find other compelling reasons to lure unagi lovers into their eateries. For Singaporeans one surefire way to get our attention is price.
Once in a while, you come across a restaurant that can be described as eccentric, and even slightly self serving. It's the type of restaurant that owes its existence to an owner who decides to open his own place because he can't find the food he wants to eat anywhere else!
The space vacated by Hashida sushi now occupied by Sushi Ayumu. It is still under the same ownership but its direction has shifted from Hashida’s progrssive style back to its Edomae roots where the emphasis is on teasing out the natural flavour of the produce rather than on creativity of the chef.
