Cafe Review: Hoshino Coffee

I must share with you what is now my favourite restaurant to go to now! :) Located at the newly opened wing of Plaza Singapura, Atrium @ Orchard, Hoshino Coffee is a new Japanese cafe that just opened not too long ago! There are always long queues for this but this is one queue worth waiting for! (There’s another Jap restro here called Hifumi. The queues are just as long. Check out my review here) There were 4 of us…

Hifumi – New Japanese Restaurant at Plaza Singapura

Hifumi is the new kid on the block. There can never be enough Japanese restaurants in Singapore and in the new opened wing of the Plaza Singapura, there are 2 new Japanese places to try. One of them is Hoshino Coffee and the other is Hifumi Japanese Restaurant. Hifumi serves inexpensive bento sets and what’s interesting about them is that every order of bento sets allows you unlimited access to their appetizer bar (with over 10 varieties). I thought that…

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison at Mandarin Gallery has the BEST tonkatsu in Singapore – so says all my friends. But really, I never really liked eating so much deep fried stuff so I didn’t bother checking this place till recently when the BF wanted to try it out. I’ve always been going to Tonkichi for my Tonkatsu fixes – which I still think is as good as Ma Maison.So here’s my experience at Ma Maison. Ma Masion, the Japanese-French style…

Makan at Nihon Mura 日本村 (The Cathay)

To sum up my experience at this little Jap restro tucked away at The Cathay’s basement, I would say…. it’s safe to give it a miss. It used to be known as the 99cent a plate sushi but the prices have gone up slightly which is not a bad thing but their customer service was just. plain. BAD. The waitresses kept going around clearing tables and looking very disgruntled in general. I didn’t like the layout of the restaurant at…

Best Ramen in Singapore

The BF and I love Ramen a lot. In a country like Singapore where Japanese food is so popular, it isn’t hard to find Ramen everywhere you go. But really really good ramen? Here’s a list you should try! Oh wait, here’s a tip: I always try the NORMAL/BEST SELLER ramen (one that is defined as normal/best seller at their store). :) Hardly go wrong! 1) Keisuke Tonkotsu King | Orchid Hotel, Tanjong Pagar | Japanese Ramen If you really…

Orchid Hotel Ramen: Keisuke Tonkotsu King

Keisuke Tonkotsu King at Orchid Hotel (Tanjong Pagar) is what I would really label as one of the best ramen places in Singapore. A small ramen shop, often overcrowded with long queues, Keisuke Tonkotsu King serves only pork based soups with three varieties to choose from – spicy, black pepper and regular. Note: Like all the good ramen shops, this is not a place to chill or have a chat after your meal. This is a “eat and run” place.…

Kyo-Nichi Ramen at Marina Square

I bought a Ramen deal from Deal.com.sg some time back. It’s a good deal! $5 for a bowl of collagen ramen from Kyo-Nichi at Marina Square. I’ve never heard of this ramen place before but boy am I happy I got to know of it!! Check out the pictures I took! I had the Char Siew Ramen and the Char Siew Corn Ramen. Both were very very good. Kyo-Nichi Ramen boasts a superb menu that features rich and creamy soups enriched…
