Might have found my new favorite place to get my ramen fix! With 3 levels to choose, I went for Level 2 for the spicy tonkotsu ramen, which delivered a spiciness which packed a punch (with that, go for level 1 if you can’t handle your spice too well). This spiciness was accompanied with a rich creaminess from the sapid broth, which was so flavourful. The roasted garlic gave off a wonderful aroma, but also a slight roasted flavour to the bowl. The charcoal pork chashu was melt-in-your-mouth tender, but it also added a bit of char to the overall flavour — pleasant enough for me to enjoy the everything together. Added an Ajitama which was mildly flavoured, nothing impressive per se, but a great companion to everything.

Torasho Ramen & Charcoal Bar not only whips up quality, authentic, Japanese ramen, but also interpretations of various flavours to make fusions. The Tsukumen “Singapore Best” aims to emulate that of Bak Chor Mee, but I did not really see how that fit. Looking past that, it was still a bowl of wonderful dry ramen. Noodles were on the thicker than usual side, giving a slightly tougher chew to it. The dipping soup was rich in both flavour and aroma, with more pronounced seafood essence than tonkotsu. Loved the charcoal grilled pork, which is unsurprising with Torasho also specialising in their charcoal grilled items. Added an ajitama for $2 because no ramen is complete with it🥹

Pretty decent meal which came in an intimidating huge plate — but I think that’s what the dining experience a tad more fun when the plate is bigger than your face. Nonetheless, this meal is everything you’d expect it to be. Shabu shabu atop of omelette in rice. While there’s nothing distinct about the ingredients, the curry was pretty good. Think your Japanese curry but with a slightly thinner consistency, and your choice of spiciness. Went for level 3 spiciness, which gave an adequate spicy kick, though I’d think you have to take it a notch lower if you are unable to handle spice.

Pleasantly surprised by the freshness of the salmon sashimi slices in this salmon sashimi don. Salmon sashimi slices were of the right thickness for the don, and had a nice sweetness to it. The rice and sashimi combination was served with chilli padi and a dash of sesame oil, which I thought was pretty odd for a Japanese restaurant but I somehow appreciated the hint of spice within and the added layer of flavour the sesame oil gave. Personally, I thought that the portion size, freshness and restaurant sizing made this relatively affordable. They even have miso soup as an included side! Would recommend this if you’re craving a salmon sashimi don.

I always take the chance and order Garlic Fried Rice in Japanese Restaurants because more often than not, it’s a so simple dish yet wonderfully executed by the chef. With this being one of the relatively affordable items on the menu, the garlic fried rice lived up to expectations — with every grain of rice fluffy, fragrant, and fresh. If you want to jazz up your meal here but not stick with the classic Japanese white rice, this is the way to go.

Assorted sushi and tuna roll. Decently fresh and sufficient filling for one person! This also provides a variety of fresh seafood sushi if you’re undecided on the kinds of sushi you’d like to get for your meal. If not, it’s a good platter for sharing too!

Salmon sashimi was fresh and the ikura is a classic complement that would not go wrong in this don. This set came with soup and chawanmushi, which makes it pretty worth it.

Soft tofu baked with cheese and cod roe. A side that is both cheesy and rightly flavourful, especially when complemented by the mentaiko glaze. Pairs perfectly with rice!

Decent set which included rice, chawanmushi, and miso soup. If you like tempura, the tempura here is crispy and fresh, while the assorted sashimi gives some variety to the meal as well. This will be a good balance of raw and cooked food items for those who are in a dilemma.

Dried baby sardines fried together to form a crispy sheet. Got this out of curiosity, but was not worth it in my opinion. Perhaps I was just not able to appreciate this, but $10 was way too expensive for a side like this.

Chirashi bowl that is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but delicious as well. Fresh and of great quality, Omoté really whips up chirashi dons that are a bang for the buck. The dashi gave a very light but savoury umami flavour, on top of the fresh, natural sweetness from the chunks of fish. My choice of spicy dashi was adequately fulfilled with the kick of spiciness. However, I did realise that there was another option of their Omoté bowl for only $12.80, which seems to offer the same amount of deliciousness except for the spicy kick, making this seem much less worth it. I’d recommend the Omoté bowl over this, considering the additional $7 you have to just for additional spice. I would personally just request for chilli powder or add a bit more wasabi.

The mentaiko fries here were so unique, simply because they used tempura batter. The tempura batter gave a unique crunch and crispiness to the fries, which I personally enjoyed. The mentaiko dressing was sufficiently creamy yet savoury, with a tinge of spice and umami kick.
