I’ve always enjoyed Bai Nian’s YTF, and this bowl really hits the spot. Generous amounts of YTF, noodles and warm soup. What more can I ask for to have this comforting bowl of soup on a rainy day? 😊

Honestly right, all their oden taste the same. Mild, some bite, not super super tender

Really not my kind of thing, and they're very very pricey. I know a lot of people like it, I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you know you like strong flavours and textures then this really isn't the place to be splurging, splurge on the grilled stuff instead. I know I'm coming back for anything koji marinated

PSA they require everyone to buy a drink. But at least can be just nonalcoholic, e.g. oolong at 5++ which is reasonable for an izakaya. However this is for good reason, most of the food needs something to accompany, e.g. cheese would go better w drinks rather than on its own

Quite decent, with small bits of very chewy ham. But damn ex

They literally take the oden piece out and make a dish w it

Cold oden

Very soft, it's a very clean flavour. But for 7++? Nah lol

Tbh it's slightly different, more firm than usual but the yolk is still gooey. Quite mild otherwisr

With fishcakes and taupok. The fishcakes were really cloudlike but I prefer the good handmade singaporean ones with more flavour and bite. What stunned was the taupok strips, they did have good bite. Udon was thin and slurpy, but surprisingly there's not a single piece of wagyu

That's quite disappointing

I quite liked this. Very mild, but very tender and enjoyable

Juicy but firm. The bonito is all tangled up tho very difficult to split into 4 portions(since the radish is quartered) to eat


Incredibly tender, it's unbelievable. There's this almost homogenous soft texture, you can't even distinguish fat and muscle. Mad umami from the koji, but ofc there's the accompanying funk(which I'm completely fine with but maybe not everyone is). The funk is quite mild alr, relative to the umami

Must try, it's mad.

The crab was somewhat sweet, not super strong but mixed w the egg yolk it's gooey umami

Pretty good

Smoked radish was good, sandwiching a bit of cream cheese

The cream cheese soaked in miso had a very strong funk from the miso, could be abit more umami

Kombu cream cheese is actl not that strong, can skip

Crab cream cheese rlly taste the very grey salty flavour of crab, it's alright

I hate the crackers, they have way too much character. They are savoury themselves and crunchy and thick and sometimes honestly overwhelm the cheese

Overall not all are worth a try, I'd personally only really recommend the radish, although they're certainly quite unique. For this price it's really not worth gambling
