AJInoMORI is a casual izakaya hangout set in the cosy Holland Village enclave. AJInoMORI, taking its name from the combination of the Japanese words味の森, means a ‘forest – ful’ of flavours. It typifies the AJInoMORI izakaya style where a wide selection of modern Japanese dishes can be shared by everyone over drinks.

 

Izakaya is a compound word of ‘I’ (to sit) and ‘sakaya’ (sake shop), showing that izakaya originated from sake shops that allowed customers to sit at their premises to drink. Designed to be shared, these small plate dishes are made with the freshest ingredients and innovatively prepared by our experienced chefs. They can be paired with sake, shochu, beer, wines or spirits to satisfy all palattes. Set in a rustic ambience, AJInoMORI will serve freshly prepared morsels of delightful Japanese dishes and together with our warm service staff, create a cosy and relaxing dining experience for all to enjoy.

 

So come on over to AJInoMORI to enjoy the izakaya experience.

New izakaya in Holland V

When I saw the discount coupon for this new place (izakaya) on hungrydeals.com two weeks ago, I prepared for lunch at Lorong Liput with a few clicks on the mouse.

Read Aji no Mori, this izakaya can accommodate 60 diners. Set in a warm and cosy ambience, one may choose to sit at a regular table in private cubicles, or bare his/her soles on the wooden platform (like the Japanese) for a more authentic feel.

We started with their Healthy Salmon Veggie Roll ($10), makis which had got a healthy twist of alfalfa sprouts instead of rice. While my companion thought the taste was too 'green' for her, I liked the crunch from the grass.

The Gyu Karubi (Beef short rib, $12) we had was as succulent and tender as the best steak I had in recent memory. Grilled to a tantalizing pink on the inside, the mere sight of it was enough to send any beef-loving human go weak in the knees.

Flavoursome juices rushed forth the moment I sank my teeth into the melt-in-month protein, the taste was OMG.

Foie gras toufu steak ($18) was another highlight of the meal. The rich flavours of the goose liver filled the tofu steak and was an absolute must-try for any foie-gras fan.

Service was brisk and attentive, and the waitstaff served us with a smile throughout the afternoon, making an already pleasant dining experience even more memorable. We even fixed a date to return before we left.

I was wandering around when I discovered this place.  It was a quiet early evening time.  I ordered the usual cha soba and tempura and dessert.

The overall food taste was standard as other Jap places.  The only differ was the environment was really peaceful to enjoy.

Sushi sashimi and maki were good but avoid the yakimono; tasteless and tough. Not so good value for money, but service was attentive. :)

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
