Hokkaido Mazesoba ($18.30) comes with salmon flakes, salmon roe, egg, bamboo shoots, spring onions and butter. Surprisingly, the butter isn’t overpowering and all the ingredients worked quite well together.

Taiwan Mazesoba Nagoya Style ($14.80) features a hearty bowl of dry ramen topped with minced meat, spring onion and a runny egg. The minced meat is savoury and mildly spicy, and a dash of vinegar adds some acidity to balance out the strong flavours. The noodles are firm and springy. As this is quite saucy, you can opt for a scoop of rice to finish up the delicious sauce at the end.

I have always wanted to try Sushiro but I keep putting it aside because of the long waiting time😅 Finally got down to trying it in Suntec City recently and it did not disappoint.

We ordered a variety of sushi and it totalled up to $47 for 2 pax, which is pretty reasonable. The sashimi is very fresh and the sushi are generally good. Fatty Mackerel Oshisushi is a leaf-wrapped pressed sushi with marinated fatty mackerel - it looks a little odd but it turned out to be flavourful and not fishy. What a pleasant surprise!

The non-sushi items such as the Crab Cream Croquette and Matsutake Chawanmushi are delicious too. The creamy crab filling literally squirt out from the crispy croquette when you bite into it. The autumn-special chawanmushi is silky and savoury too.

Did I have to queue for this? Yes, but thankfully the food was good and made up for it👍🏻

I had dinner at the foodcourt next to Don Don Donki at Clark Quay Central and the Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen with Ajitamago ($15.90) from Ramen Hitoyoshi is one comforting bowl of ramen. The thin ramen noodle has a firm texture, the spicy pork-bone broth is full of flavour and the chushu is soft. Good stuff!

I tried the Tomato Sukiyaki Hamburg Claypot Set ($21.90) which came with a prime beef Hamburg stewed with French beans, cabbage, mushroom, tomato and tofu in a tomato based broth. The Hamburg is soft and juicy, and it soaks up the tangy, spicy and sweet sauce which goes well with rice.

Every Hamburg set comes with an amazing free-flow salad bar with a wide range of vegetables, dressings, potato and noodle salads, as well as an impressive egg station that offers tamagoyaki, scrambled eggs, sunny side up and hard boiled egg. The variety of food is very generous and most of the items are delicious.

For such price point, quality of food and portion size, Hamburg Steak Keisuke is definitely one of the most value-for-money places you can visit when you are in the mood to feast!

The Tonkatsu Soba ($18.50) features freshly made cold buckwheat soba accompanied by a deep-fried pork cutlet. The texture of the soba is just right, the dipping sauce is not too salty and the cold soba is really refreshing on a hot day. The pork cutlet has a good bite and it goes really well with the tonkatsu sauce. Although the crispy exterior gets soft after awhile, this is still pretty delicious for me.

The Cha Soba Set ($21.80) consist of cha soba, tempura prawn, salmon sashimi and chawanmushi. The batter of the tempura prawn is unlike the usual Japanese tempura - it is more like a deep fried prawn. The prawn is succulent and the batter is crispy and well-seasoned. The cha soba is a little chewier than usual (which I like) but the dipping sauce is a tad salty for me. The salmon sashimi is plump and fresh. The real star, however, is the chawanmushi. The egg is soft, silky and very flavourful - love it!

The Assorted Bowl ($16.90) comes with 12 slices of assorted seafood on top of flavoured Japanese rice. The sashimi slices are fresh, thick and full of natural sweetness. The rice is equally impressive - I’m not sure what they did to the rice but it is so flavourful that I did not need any additional sauce to go with the sashimi. This is one delicious and value-for-money sashimi bowl that you can find under a HDB flat at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.

We ordered Truffles Fries ($12) to share and I am actually low-key impressed at how crispy and well seasoned these shoestring fries are. The fries stayed crisp throughout the whole meal and they go well with the truffle sauce. Love the big portion as well!

The Mentaiko Scallops features flame-torched Hokkaido scallops drizzled in mentaiko sauce and topped with tobiko and scallions. The scallops are sweet, tender and not over cooked - can’t get enough of this!

I have been wanting to give Waa Cow! a try as there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond at the Marina One outlet. The 3 course meal ($50++ for 2 pax) comes with Mentaiko Scallops, Signature Truffle Sukiyaki and one pint of Asahi Super Dry (non-alcoholic beverages available too).

The Signature Truffle Sukiyaki is a hearty rice bowl that comes with soft beef slices cooked in house made beef bone tare and topped with shaved truffle, seasonal mushrooms, onsen egg, tobiko and scallions. The sauce is sweet and savoury, and the runny egg brings everything together deliciously.

The chilly weather calls for a comforting bowl of ramen🍜 The Akamaru Tamago ($19) features a rich, smooth and flavourful tonkotsu broth with an extra oomph from a special blend miso paste and fragrant garlic oil. I like that the noodles is thin but firm. Along with the super soft chashu, flavoured egg, black fungus and spring onion, this is one satisfying and comforting bowl of ramen.
