This counter-only seating Japanese restaurant offers ala carte and omakase meals for lunch and dinner. Choose from a variety of fresh seafood and vegetables that are deep fried a la minute.
Where is the Best Ramen Restaurant in Singapore? If you have friends coming from overseas, let them give Teppei Restaurant a try. It is a small traditional Japanese store that has high turnover (you eat and you leave), because the queue to eat at this restaurant is really long. While queuing, you may get a glass of Japanese barley tea (free flow). I queued for about 50 minutes before getting in.
What type of noodles and soup broth must you get? Do you know that they have complimentary free flow of eggs?

Best chirashi don i've had. had the daily special which was unagi and chirashi don - it was superb. the unagi was really tasty and the bara don as awesome as before! well the only downside is the narrow seating place.
Assorted Appetiser Platter
The edamame bean was nutty. The deep fried fish skin was quite crunchy. The lotus root salad was crunchy. The in house made bean curd was light and smooth. The spinach was light and crunchy. The fishcake was crunchy. The unagi maki was a bit too plain.
There was salmon, tuna, snapper, scallop, and seaweed, served with fresh wasabi. Felt the tuna was not as fatty and melt in the mouth as before.
Quite smooth in texture.
Mini minced raw tuna roll
Since I'm a female, I got the mini size version. Guys will get the big size version. There was crispy tempura crumbles in the roll which made the roll quite crunchy.
Mini Taro Served on a stick.
It looked like a nut but really tasted like taro.
Monk Fish Liver Served on spoon.
Wrapped with crispy beancurd skin, it tasted quite rich and creamy.
As I was served the tail part, the meat was juicy but a bit quite boney.
Raw Tuna, Salmon Roe, Uni on Sushi Rice
Served on a spoon.
Fish Cake Mochi Served on a spoon.
Served with a bit of sweet savoury brown sauce on it, it had a chewy mochi like texture with a fish cake like taste.
Pickle Served on a stick.
It was served to act as a palate cleanser.
Foie Gras on Salmon Sashimi Served on a spoon.
Quite melt in the mouth combination.
Roasted Monk Fish Skin
Its chewy texture kind of reminded one of dried cuttlefish.
Served with a light sauce on top.
The meat was sweet and juicy
Raw Monk Fish's lip
Quite crunchy in texture.
The beef looked a bit bloody but tasted quite smooth. For this course, if one did not take beef, it was replace with braised pork. The pork looked dry but had a melt in the mouth texture.
Pork bone soup with Mochi
The mochi looked like kway chap but was quite chewy in texture. The soup was quite porky.
Tai (Snapper) 's Belly on Cream Cheese
Served on spoon. Interesting experience of having sashimi with cream cheese. It kind of balance the rich taste of the cream cheese.
Main Course : Sashimi Rice Don, 4 Kinds of Sushi, Uni Fried Rice, Wagyu Beef Fried Rice, Fish Ocha Zuke, Hiyajiru
Mom tried Ocha Zuke which reminded one of teochew fish porridge. It was actually rice in hot soup with snapper sashimi, shredded ginger and fresh wasabi on top.
If one was having birthday, you could change the main course to sashimi cake. Remember the staff in advance. The staffs around will also sing birthday song to the birthday guy in lighted eye-wears, with the lights off. The sashimi cake was actually cubed sashimi and crunchy pops served on top of seasoned sushi rice, with a candle lighted on.
Dessert was a scoop of ice cream with choice of flavour : Calpis, Durian, Green Tea, Sesame, Salted Caramel, Yuzu.
The black sesame one was rich and creamy. The green tea one was not bad too. But my favourite was the calpis version.
