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!!!
