Good beef steak as always, but what was my beef?

Had a beef steak (hot plate with rice). I typically enjoy this place's hot plate beef, succulent with accompanying sweet dark sauce and veges. After a few months of not visiting the restaurant, i realise the beef slices have shrunk considerably. Are we talking about the 35% increase in food prices overall? Is this why? No change to the juiciness and texture, just a lot smaller beef portions.

Japanese Gourmet Town started out as a place where one can try a different variety of Japanese food. However, over time, the place has now focused on the Ajisen ramen brand with some add ons.

At a recent visit, I went with the ramen set lunch and I picked the premium items of fried prawns with mayonaisse. Unfortunatley, I found the batter of the prawns to be a little on the tough side and a bit chewy.

As for the ramen, I went with the regular shoyu soup base. The soup base was okay but the char siu was a little tough. Noodles had a good level of balance in level of its "spring".

Given the many new ramen options around, the food here unfortunately did not meet up to my expectations and I am unlikely to return.

I have eaten at Ajisen more times than I can remember as my daughter is an absolute fan of their Charsiew ramen!! She could polish A WHOLE bowl of ramen ALL by herself from the day she turned 3!! It's shocking I know.

So when I'm there, I always eat their seafood Tom Yum Ramen. I have tried other stuff on their menu but still feel that their Tom Yum Ramen is the best.

I hold this belief until my help ordered their Curry Chicken Stone Rice and I had a little to try. I thought the rice was very fragrant and tasty. The chicken meat was tender too. I was very impressed with the tastiness of their Curry Chicken Stone Rice tho it was oily too.

Now that I think so highly of their Curry Chicken Stone Rice, I will have trouble deciding what to order the next time I'm there!!!

Went during lunch where the restaurant is only half full. 4 or us order:

1. Spicy Chasu Ramen + Fried Tofu + Ice Tea

2. Spicy Chasu Ramen + Fried Chicken + Cold Tea

3. Seafood Ramen + Tempura Prawns + Ice Tea

4. Seafood Ramen + California Maki + Cold Tea = Hot tea came instead

Staff served the wrong table & didn't even realised until we told her and yet she didn't believed us.

We also ordered a Seafood Okonomiyaki which 1/4 wasn't consumed as we were to full and asked for it to be packed. Promised by the waitress, we waited for 7min and when we approached her, she didn't even recall what she was supposed to do but it was too late anyways, it was thrown away.

The place was decently busy but with an order as we didn't see these waitresses dashing around, instead they were leisurely walking around and until the bell rings at the kitchen, it means food is out...just that simple and yet service can be so bad.

Not that food is so great, we were just craving for ramen and it will be the last time I will go back.

What to Eat
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
