Japanese Dishes with a Homey Attitude

Full Review: http://dairycream.blogspot.jp/2014/10/botan-japanese-restaurant-homely-affair.html
I thought I would find Botan Shrimp on the menu but I didn't. Hah...but this Japanese restaurant serves up pretty delicious dishes that taste very close to those you find in Japanese homes. On the dinner menu, you'll find a list of Dinner Sets, ala carte sashimi, Yakitori, porridge, soba, sushi, tofu, tempura, etc.
 The Gyunikyu Jagaimo is a flavourful simple beef stew with the caramelized sweetness of onions and carrots. Soft, creamy yet not spammed with too much mayonnaise. The Tamago yaki takes semblance after dashi-maki, served warm and significantly less sweeter. I felt short-changed on the Stir-fry Beef with Leeks as the greens were in shortage and the dish was too oily. And I'm sure most Japanese housewives would raise opposition towards this.

Though being cruelly severed into slices, the Unagi Kabayaki ($15) remained a crowd pleaser with its fatty tissues that gave a full, tantalizing mouthfeel. If you love potato salad, then you should try the version here at $8 as it is probably the best I've come accords in Singapore. Not to forget the light low-calorie supper food Tofu Mentaiko; anything hardly goes wrong if you throw in some mentaiko and this is no exception :)

Jap cuisine at a quiet alley

Great Food at Reasonable Prices!

This place serves one of the best Japanese food in Singapore. For $25 or so, you can get dinner sets with very authentic food which includes chunky portions of sashimi, interesting seasonal dishes (depending on what's available) and my favourite here is the yummy tonkatsu!

I'll let my photos speak
