Opted for the mini but portion was still a little too much for me. Loved how generous they were with the cubes of fresh sashimi, ratio to rice was great! Mushroom burdock rice is used instead of the typical sushi rice.

Happened to pop by few days before this outlet closed! The chewy warabi mochi here is actually pretty worth it and we enjoyed the kuromitsu that was served with it. Hop over to the Craig Road outlet for a wider variety (Goma was my personal favourite and Yuzu was refreshing!).

Also ordered their outlet exclusive Ichigo-ichie gelato, a small batch experimental gelato flavour. This time it was smoked oat milk - smoked with applewood chips; but we thought it was too mild.

Option of hot/ cold udon/ soba and spicy cold udon. Enjoyed the spicy cold udon - the chilled inaniwa udon were chewy, with cucumber, Sakura ebi, cucumber, leek, bits of tempura batter for crunch and layu. Pretty spicy for me but it was refreshingly good!

Requires a $3 add on if you’re getting the set (tendon + udon).

First tried Tenya in Japan and was surprised by the quality of a chain restaurant (but then again it’s Japan😂). Pretty decent for its price, starting at $8.90 for a basic tendon. We went for the premium which came with 2x tempura prawns, squid, kani kama, pumpkin, lotus root and French beans. They were generally lightly battered and not too greasy! Prawns and squid were a tad bland but ok overall especially with the tare. I really enjoyed the sweet pumpkin slice.

I liked that there’s the option of less rice (and it’s 50cents cheaper!). For the hungry/ best of both worlds, you could get the set which comes with rice and udon (+$3 for spicy cold udon).

This promotional seafood mini rice was quite satisfying with roasted scallop, salmon roe, crab meat, prawn and crab miso on the side! Rly like the refreshing yuzu sauce.

Served with leeks, tang-oh and yuzu skin. Wished there were more yuzu zest to it, but the broth was pretty decent. Prefer a slightly more chewy soba texture though.

Aburi, asked them to torch slightly longer as my mum doesn’t eat raw food; this was also pretty good, texture was a little like fatty tuna? So far we really enjoyed the food here!

Really enjoyed this! presentation was 💯, tasted as good as it looked! Pork was beautifully caramelised, tender, firm creamy foie gras, came with runny egg served within its shell with sweet, briny uni on top.

Pretty cool space with a hidden bar.

Assorted vegetable with 2 black tiger prawns which I liked except some parts of the tempura were a tad soggy. Nothing spectacular, but was good that the batter was generally crisp, wasnt overly heavy and sauces were not too salty. The lunch set came with salad and miso soup.

Under “Today’s Special” menu, cooked in sake broth and the clams were very plump.

The starter set which costs $25/29++ ($25++ for non alcoholic drinks) is good for first timers if you aren’t sure what to get. Comes with 4 Chicken skewers / 2 Pork skewers / Salad / Drink. Pictured here is x2. Do let them know if you’re not comfortable with giblets.

Not quite sure what dressing was it (sesame??) but I strangely, really loved the salad!

We had the chicken filet with yuzu pepper, chicken thigh. Both of which were tasty and remained juicy. The other item served was chicken tail (this was my first time eating it and it was good! Grilled till golden brown, and fatty but the texture was interesting), and the crisp juicy wings were shiok.

As for pork skewers we had the pork belly wrapped with enoki and sweet cherry tomato. Also added on ala carte skewer of pork belly shiso, quite liked the fragrance of shiso.

Enjoyed our dinner here. Took me back to Japan for a bit 🥺 As the place is rather small, do make a reservation before heading down.
