The Tsukada Nojo at the Plaza Singapore on one of the weekdays after the working hour. We travelled from office to Plaza Singapore by bus instead of taking the MRT during the rush hours, however, it made no different. I have another colleague waiting for us at the restaurant, queuing up in front of the restaurant.
Together with another two colleagues, 4 of us tried one version of the beauty pots from their menu after waited for about an hour. We ordered the Tsukada Nojo’s house specialty is the Bijin Nabe, the signature golden jidori chicken soup. The soup is stewed 8 hours until chicken bones fully dissolved and cold down at room temperature to make silky smooth pudding beancurd… Is to make silky smooth and super rich collagen. Ingredients for soup was said to be imported from Japan.
This is how the food served on our table excluded the pork meat. We have to order the same pot as it just has 1 stove for our table, so it means for each group of people, only 1 type of based is allowed.
The second picture shows the portion of pork meat for 4 persons.
Initially, we felt the portion was not enough for us as dinner while waited the broth to boil because every ingredients just nice for four of us. The first round with all the vegetables and meatballs. It is served by the waitress who is quite friendly.
After that, she served us with a small bowl of the broth. The taste of the broth is quite similar to the Din Tai Fung’s steamed chicken soup. You will like it. I do like it and asked for top up too. It is free to top up once. And, you can order more ingredients to go with it.
While we’re trying out the soup, the waitress gave us some seaweed to go with the broth, and she said it tasted good too with seaweed. I did not realize the seaweed was in heart shape.
It did not make the soup tasted better or not, so just can go with or without it based on your preferences. Do not cook the vegetable for too long.
Soon after, we started to serve ourselves the second round with the prawns and the pork meat by ourselves. Just like the waitress, I did a nice presentation when I dipped the prawns into the soup before I took a picture of the pot.
And, the waitress saw it and told us the prawn would not cook if we put it that way. Haha… I told her it was just for us to take picture 🙂
Then, we told her to start serving the udon and we cooked it with the pork meat. The portion of udon for 4 person was quite reasonable and we did not get to finish all the udon even we asked to top up the soup once.
The waitress told us to give them a Google rating and we can get a free ice-cream after showing them the rating from our mobile phones. It is simple mission to get a free ice-cream, so give a try to rate it according to your preferences.
There are two favours, but I just remember the one we chose which was the Yuzu ice-cream. It’s refreshing, concentrated but not too sweet, good for a try if you want to have dessert of the meal.
After all the great meal and ice cream, the waitress is friendly enough to serve us another plate of dessert, I think is sour plum pudding and again, it is nicely decorated and presented to us.
It is a great dining experience at this Japanese restaurant, although it is expensive, it is the fresh ingredients and services make me feel it is still worth for a try during special occasions with a small group of friends or family.
