Baked Salmon Mentaiko and Soba by Haakon

Baked salmon fillet with mentaiko mayo, soba noodles, broccoli, purple cabbage slaw, charred corn, ginger ponzu sauce

This could be a nice combination if only the soba noodle was not too soggy. I don’t know if it is the way they cooked it or just a one-time overcooked noodle. Other than that, everything else was tasty. A nice option of healthy food to be delivered to our home by @grabfoodsg.

Price : $$

Soi 19 Thai Wonton Noodle – my favorite noodle

I’ve seen this noodle place at Upper Thomson shophouses area and been wanting to try it out but was not sure if they’re good (I didn’t check any review as well lol). But looking at their pic, the noodle seems very appealing to me. After I heard it from my friends, I decided to try it.. And WOW! I Love it!

The texture is springy, the original sauce is great AND every single topping is yummy.The wontons, chasiu, fish sausages, even the fried lard are also yummy (too bad they are very little though..). 

This noodle has become my favorite noodle in Singapore now! If you haven’t tried it, you should!

Ultimate Egg rice @ Tamago-EN

Tamago Kake Gohan! Been wanting to try this out but need a really fresh egg. Thankfully we found this restaurant that is relatively new in Novena Square. This supposed to be a breakfast menu in Japan, but heck, I had it for dinner instead. It uses raw egg but it doesn’t taste like raw egg. So yummy! I added Negitoro as topping. The trendy way to eat this is to add all the condiments (furikake and soy sauce) and mix it together. The fluffy white egg gives a mushy texture to the rice. Maybe I would like it even more if the white egg was not whipped (the traditional one as seen on Japanese Drama lol).

Jia Xiang Mee @ VivoCity Mall

The store in VivoCity was the first time I tried Jia Xiang Mee, introduced by a friend. Since then, I’ve tried their other stores but none of them has the same standard as this one (according to my personal preference). Last week I was in VivoCity and thought about eating noodle, so I visited this place again after so many years! (I’ve been to Vivo for several times during that period but never eat here lol..).

I ordered Jia Xiang Mee. The original one. It comes with wontons and shrimps as well. At first bite, I felt disappointed because even tho the texture of the noodle was springy and nice, I felt like it was too bland in taste. I continued eating for a while until I saw the condiment table!! OMG, I should have added some of the condiments! I took soy sauce, white pepper and chili pickle. I put soy sauce and pepper into the bowl and mixed everything. Moment of truth.. hap! It tasted sooo much better! Then I tried their wonton as well. It was great! Skin were thin and meat inside was tasty. Yum~!

Jia Xiang Mee

The noodle itself is SGD 7.9, but I bought water bottled as well so the total was SGD $9.9. Still affordable for a meal in the mall I think.

Tonkatsu Curry @ Ikura Thomson Plaza

It was Sunday evening and we planned to have dinner at Omote Japanese Restaurant in Thomson Plaza. Unfortunately, the queue was really bad. So many people lined up and the queue even reached the stairs outside the restaurant. I suggested to try Ikura, a Japanese Resto as well, located on the first floor, next to 7-Eleven. I’ve been there 1 time for their ramen and it was not that great but I’m willing to give another menu a try.

There was no queue here but we still couldn’t get a seat until they finally set up a table for us. It’s better to reserve first I guess! When we were waiting, we saw a Special Daily Deal and for Sunday is Curry Rice! I decided to order that. Curry rice is only for SGD $7.9 (normal price is SGD $10.9) and I opted for Tonkatsy as the topping (+SGD $5). Another topping they have are chicken, beef, pork, tori karaage (fried chicken) and ebi tempura (fried shrimp).

We waited for almost 30 minutes for our food because they were serving another guests first who were already there when we came in. When it finally came, we were so excited and ate it immeditely. Everyone was so quiet, savoring the curry rice. It was pretty good! Curry is thick but I wish they give more of it. Rice portion is just nice. Tonkatsu is delicious as well, especially when dipped into the curry. Yum!

Tonkatsu Curry Rice

Overall, it was a tasty dish. After the tax and service, I paid for SGD $15 for the curry rice with tonkatsu. Reasonable price for a Japanese Restaurant. Definitely will recommend people to try this resto. Just be patient when they are full though, as servingg time can be long. Their staffs are minimum number, 3 people at the kitchen and 1 people at the counter / taking order / serving / payment (multitasking!).

Have you tried this restaurant? If so, which dish is your favorite? Let me know in the comment 😉
