Usually it's always crowded in the evening time, for this place seatings are quite limited. For me, I always tends to go early evening or afternoon, that will guarantee me a seat & no need to pack with others.
The noodles texture was soft and tangy, my preferance. And the spicy miso is a good soup broth to me. That is why if I happen to be around that area, this is another choice that I can think of.
Weekends. Post-drinks. Had a bad day. This used to be the place I come to for comfort food for the past decade.
Sadly, I have to say I've lost one of my favorite ramen joints after tonight. We had the Chasyu Ramen and Kyushu Tonkatsu Ramen, and both were bad. It wasn't even mediocre, just plain bad. The noodles were tasteless as were the stock. It was like a crappy bowl of oily wanton mee except 3 times the price. if the stock tasted like anything, it would be milk and oil. Upon paying, we learnt that the Jap head chef has left the restaurant. Well I guess we won't ever come again. Sayonara, my fav ramen joint.
This (literally) hole-in-the-wall shop in front of Cuppage Plaza surprisingly offers a delectable array of Japanese Food - well, not so much Japanese, but it's nicely done at least. I was there twice. However, there's less-than-stellar consistency when it comes to the performance of the food
I forgot the exact name of the food - but this is basically a generous portion of stir-fry veggies, meat (pork I think, to add a certain savoriness), and shrimp on top of rice. Not really Japanese in nature, I guess - But it is certainly delicious. There's a strong wok-hei flavor in my dish, which is rare and appreciated. The rice was fluffy on my first visit. However, on my second visit, the rice was lumpy, and I need to mash it with the sauce on top to make it "passable" - consistency is badly needed. I suggest to mix this dish with a generous dollop of brown sauce, chilli powder, and pepper for good measure. Definitely a must-order.
so-so only, the gyoza on my second visit was a bit charred, if not pan-fried too long. The filling is rather juicy and succulent, but I feel it lacks a certain oomph - passable
Overall, this hole-in-the-wall place is indeed cheap. I like that is is not pretentious, and serves a nice Chinese stir-fried style rice - If I want to eat cheap in Orchard, I now simply know where to look - but...the place is rather small and cramped - and I believe you'll leave the place with a pungent aroma of food - but that's a small price to pay for an above average food - They also have affordable bento, but only for takeaways (kinda puzzled me, but that's the policy anyway)
