Popped by Tsujiriโ€™s newest outlet at Sengkang Grand Mall over the weekend. As part of the storeโ€™s opening promo, there was 1-for-1 drinks (until 16 April only).

Loved the beautiful ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ท๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ ๐— ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ธ ๐—™๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐˜ ($7.90) with ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ-๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐˜ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ. The robust Houjicha contrasted nicely with the floral Sakura flavour.

We also liked the ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ ๐— ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ธ ๐—™๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐˜ ($7.90, not pictured) with ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ท๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ-๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐˜ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ. Somehow this drink was prepared way ahead of the Houjicha Milk Float, so the ice-cream had partially melted.

Tsujiri is one of my top picks to get my Matcha and Houjicha fix!

We finished the meal with a ๐—ž๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป ($11) and a ๐—š๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ($12), which left us feeling supremely satisfied.

We were highly impressed with the ๐—ฆ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐——๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—š๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ ($15). The nutty sesame sauce coated every strand of soba, imparting a nutty aroma to them. The succulent slices of duck complemented the noodles perfectly, and this was an all round magnificent dish.

Another item that delighted us was the ๐—”๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ ($3.30). Crunchy asparagus wrapped in unctuous and umami pork belly was a match made in heaven.

We were awed by the ๐—œ๐—ธ๐—ฎ ๐—ฌ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ ($18). The whole squid, emitting a smokey fragrance and seasoned with a house-made teriyaki sauce, was exquisite.

Being an izakaya, we had to try the grilled items. The ๐—ฌ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ ๐—ฃ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ($14.50) โ€” five skewers of different cuts of chicken โ€” were delicious.

I also tried the ๐—ž๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($15) and the ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป & ๐—”๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ผ ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($10), and both were magnificent as well. Its a big loss to Punggol that Otoko Ten Ten will be closing, and I canโ€™t wait for its new location!

We also loved the ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—œ๐—ธ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฎ ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น ($6), which came with generous amounts of mentaiko sauce.

All the sashimi plates consist of six thick slices and you canโ€™t go wrong with any of them. The ๐—›๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ (yellowtail, $10) was impeccable.
