Sanpoutei Ramen Singapore

This morning me and my friend went to Holland Village to have breakfast at one of the cafe there. After we finished, when we walked to the bus stop my friend told me about this Japanese Restaurant on the way. The name is Sanpoutei Ramen and she said it usually very crowded so we have to queue early if possible. Their ramen is using fish broth and my friend recommended it. So we decided to eat there for lunch.

I stayed around the area until lunch time, while waiting for my friend. There is a small park where I can sit and enjoy the weather. Then I also remembered there is a good pet shop in the area, called “All breed pet shop”, so I visited them. Next, I waited in a coffee shop, Costa Coffee while updating my blog (but haven’t posted and now I’m writing this one instead… oops :D). I mistakenly order a heavy drink (which made me couldn’t finished the noodle at lunch!). I thought it was a hot green tea, but it was ice-blended (frostino) instead. Morning brain fart..

Around 11.55 am my friend came, and we entered the restaurant. I supposed to queue for us though but I saw no line in front of the restaurant so I didn’t queue but sitting on the bench near by while watching the restaurant in case they suddenly have people queuing. I think the staff there was suspicious at me since I watched the restaurant for quite some time while waiting for my friend lol.

We sat down at the table appointed to us, and the guy brought me a box to put my bag in it. It didn’t take long for us to order since we know what to order already. I wanted to try their rice dish but maybe next time.. was still full from the green tea drink.

Both of us ordered shoyu ramen with soft-boiled egg. It’s their specialty.

The noodle came so fast and we dig in immediately. First, I tried the soup. Fresh! If you like rich type of soup, maybe this is not your cup of tea. Bamboo shoot was yummy. Soft-boiled egg was delicious and cooked perfectly. Noodle is thin and chewy. Overall it is recommended to try.

Genki Sushi Singapore – A Unique Sushi Restaurant in town

When I don’t know what to eat, usually sushi is always a good choice for me. Especially if I have to try a new place (and it was a recommendation from a friend). Genki Sushi is a sushi chain in Singapore and you will find a queue most of the time at their outlets. There are several outlets all over Singapore, such as in orchard central, bugis junction, and chinatown. We were in Orchard area at that time, and the closest one was in Takashimaya (Ngee Ann City), just next to a big Guardian store in Basement 2. Weird that they don’t have this outlet listed on their website.

There were some people before us on the queue, but it wasn’t take long for us to get our seat. The place is quite big as well. We got a seat at table number 2. Each table has a number and a station name. For our table, it was Ueno. Once we sat down, the waitress gave us an ipad with menu on it. First of all, we picked our drink. Hot green tea for me. They gave us the empty glass and I had to pour the green tea (2 small spoon is enough) and boiled water by myself, then mixed it with the back of our chopstick! Fun 😀

Next, we ordered food! Starting from the left is sushi menu. The unique thing from this restaurant is the way they deliver the food. They deliver it with a mini train! There are 3 lines of train on the side of the table. Each train can only bring 4 items. For example, we ordered 3 portions of salmon sushi, then we had to click 3 times and it filled 3 spaces of the mini train on ipad. Once we have 4 items on the train, we can click on execution / delivery. Then continue with another order! Can be another sushi, gunkan, maki, sashimi, fried dish, rice and noodle dish. Or even a dessert!

Food ordering at Genki Sushi

After a while, a train came to our table. Of course, I took a photo! Then we took out all of the food. Once the train was empty, we had to clicked on the button to send the train back. The button that we have to click is depend on which line the train is. There are 3 lines of railway. If the empty train is in number 2, then we have to click button number 2, which is in the middle. It was fun!

Their food was delicious as well. They were fresh and cooked well. I love all of the stuff that we ordered! Their price is reasonable as well. According to my friend, it is the same as sushi tei, but the food quality is better.

Once we finished with our food, we had to go to the cashier and mentioned our table. They showed us our order and after confirming it, we paid it to the cashier.

Genki Sushi yummy food

It was a new and fun experience for me. Plus the food was also yummy. I would recommend you to try this place when you are visiting Singapore. Genki Sushi also available in Japan (well doh!), USA, Hong Kong and China. Also, I would like to thank my friends for taking me to this place!
