Menya Musashi

Menya Musashi, Raffles City, Singapore.
Address: 252 North Bridge Rd, B1-44C, Singapore 179103.

It has been two months I stopped writing food reviews and it is time to resume and put up some nice photos and some reviews about the food which I have tried so far in the month of June.

Firstly, I would like to share with you a worth-to-try premium set from Menya Musashi. It is a Japanese restaurant located at Raffles City shopping center. The premium set which I ordered is called Cha Shu Ramen.

The Chashu ramen, karaage (fried) chicken, a chawanmushi, salad and a glass of drink.

You can choose type of the ramen, thick, thin or matcha noodle. You can choose the soup based too, original, garlic and spicy. Also, you can choose to have fried gyoza or karaage chicken.

My ramen is using original soup broth, thick ramen and it has 1 chashu only with some shredded wood-ear, half egg, seaweed and some pickles. If you order the Chashu ramen set, you will get additional pieces of meat without the karaage chicken and chawanmushi. It depends on your preferences.

The drink is refillable and you can choose between hot or cold houji cha, plain water or other drinks with additional costs.

The lunch is filing, sumptuous, delicious, worth to try. You may want to avoid fried chicken cutlet if you do not want to eat oily food.

Iciban Sushi

Iciban Sushi, AMK Hub, Singapore.

After the 2XU marathon on the Sunday’s morning, I took a short nap in the afternoon after reached home and showered. I was too eager to join my cousin and my aunt for dinner that night, just before I prepared to depart from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.

My cousin told me they planned to have dinner at the AMK Hub instead of having the home cooked dinner. I left the house about 2 hours earlier after the laundry and reached AMK Hub at 4.30PM. We stopped by at the FairPrice before dinner.


It took us quite long to get a table although we reached earlier because my aunt was sitting on the wheelchair, so sushi bar is not convenient for her. They use the numbered queuing system and it is more systematic. The waiters and waitresses are polite and approachable. They are mainly Filipino.

I was unable to decide whether I want to try their Udon or getting the rice set. After seeing the menu, I decided to try the new set on the menu, Kaisen Chirashi Don. The word “chirashi” means “scattered”, so this is basically a big bowl of rice mixed with salmon, tuna and snowfish with vegetables. The base is quite plain and I added some chili powder onto it.

The ingredients are fresh, generous amount and filling. The taste is quite plain and that brings out the taste of freshness. On top of that, the set comes with a bowl of hot miso soup. We completed our meals with additional maki.

It was a day with full load of carbo after running for half marathon. I am so happy and satisfied. 🙂

Fat Boys Burger

Fat Boys Burger, Orchard Road, Singapore.

I am going to do a throw back of the events happened during the last March. Just a day before the Sundown Singapore Marathon 2017, I met up with two other friends for a casual dinner after work at the Fat Boys Burger which is located at Orchard Road. It is my first time visiting this branch. The first visit was at Upper Thomson Road.

There was no queue when my friend and I walked from Plaza Singapore to this restaurant which is situation along Orchard Road, right behind the bus stand. However, the restaurant was full house and no tables available for three person. We waited quite a while because we did not want to sit at those high chairs at the bar side.

So much waiting time wasted and we quickly ordered our food once we got our seats not far from the restaurant’s entrance after a couple paid their bill and left the place. The waitress is quite friendly and repeated our orders carefully. It took a while more before they served our food. My friend ordered the Fries with Cheese and shared among us. It is a day full of fries and carbohydrates.

I ordered the Royale with Cheese which comes with a beef patty, soft sesame bun and some fries. I took a top view of the burger and then, I recalled the days before I met a sales person who works for F&B merchant portal. It makes me to take another good shot of the burger in which I decided to make it naked.

I took a close up picture of the beef patty with a piece of cheese. This is how the burger looks like. As for the taste and the sauce combination, I felt satisfied and finished the whole burger without complaints.

Soup Spoon

Soup Spoon

Sunday’s afternoon lunch meet up with my great “brother” in Singapore. I met up with my friend who treated each other like brother and sister after a short chat in FB messenger whereby I told him about an IT event on-going. We met up at Raffles Place MRT where it was most convenient place for both of us to meet up, as I was coming down from the East and he was taking the Red line from the North.

Before that, I purchased the Groupon’s voucher of SGD$20.00 worth of value which we can order two sets of soups and we saved about few dollars each person. It is always good to check out the great deals online before we head off to the restaurant.

I ordered the roasted pumpkin soup with a tuna mayo bread. It is one of their set with bread. Instead of bread, you can choose to have sets with salad too. My friend chose to eat the minestrone soup with salad. The portion of our food is quite big portion which comes with bread, salad and rice. Besides that, the set meal comes with a drink of your choice too.

The pumpkin is rich source of minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. Pumpkin seeds indeed are an excellent source of dietary fiber and mono-unsaturated fatty acids, which are good for heart health. That day, I was still having the cough and flu. After having the pumpkin soup and hot black tea, my flu was getting better than the days before.

It is an healthy meal of the day with great set meal offer which I see its benefits more than other things.

Mook’s Thai Mookata BBQ

Mook’s Thai Mookata BBQ.
Address: 2 Liang Seah Street, Bugis, Singapore.

On one of the running nights with my friends in Singapore’s city area, we stopped by Bugis for our dinner, just a short walk from my friend’s house. We walked around the food street at Liang Seah Street where many of the restaurants are selling steamboat located and we decided to try the set meal of 4 person at the Mook’s Thai Mookata BBQ.

We were greeted at the main door and there was no crowd when we entered the restaurant at 9PM. We seated at the center of the restaurant so it was quite easily to reach the waiters for food ordering.

Then, the waiter showed us the menu and we decided to go with our initial plan of ordering the set meal. The waiter asked whether we have any of the ingredients of the set meal that we were not eating. It is kind of waste if we did not eat and still order it. Well, it was only me who did not take the pig liver so we did not change anything from the set meal and the guys wanted to have rice, we added two bowls of rice. We did not order drink. The waiting time to be served is reasonable, judging by the crowd when we were there.

The first picture of the food served on our table. It looks pretty reasonable portion of meats and vegetables, two bowls of rice and a jug of the soup broth. Nicely presented with the side background of my friend’s bag, SuperDry.

Let me show you the closed up picture of the meat.

The waiter told us to grease it first before start grilling our meat. It is not easy to work on it especially using the small tongs. After we managed to grease it well enough, we placed our meat on top and the clams, meatballs, crabmeats and sausages on the soup to start cooking.

Then, added the vegetable and we started eating. We have to occasionally grease the grill area as it easily turned brown and it would be harder to grill our meat later. Besides that, we have to add the soup broth constantly too. For this set meal, we can easily grill it for three or four rounds with all the basic ingredients that we ordered.

We can add the clams and prawn head to make the soup sweeter along with the cabbage. Lucky that this group of friends are omnivores, we ate everything that they served on the plates. Maybe, we were hungry back then.

Lastly, we put in the noodle and cooked it with the remaining soup broth. The soup is sweet and tasty, just a little oily because of the oil from the grilled meats. We almost finished the soup 🙂

Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple

The Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho temple in Singapore, which located at Waterloo Street is always crowded with people coming here to pray for family and themselves. I came here occasionally to make my prayer too since I am a Buddhist. It is nicely decorated with red lanterns and it is full of festive mood here.

It is quite easily accessible when you walk from the Bugis Street market which sells a lot of Singapore souvenirs and local food. When you are visiting Bugis Junction shopping mall or the flea market, do drop by the temple and make a prayer.

Keisuke Ramen

Keisuke Ramen, Suntec, Singapore.
Address: #02-391/392 Suntec City Mall, 3 Temasek Boulevard, Singapore 038983.

A night outing with a group of friends cum runners in January 2017. On the same day I received a sudden news about my colleagues are leaving my previous company because of the company restructuring. It is quite bad to them as the departure news came a week before the Chinese New Year.

This ramen shop was suggested by one of them who also left the company due to the restructuring. The ramen shop offers free eggs, beansprouts and plain water. It is pretty good service. The food ordering is based on their order form below.

Since it was my first time I followed their recommendations to choose their crab broth ramen and I added the egg. As for the soup level of oil, taste and noodle texture I chose for normal which is their recommendations.

My apology for the bad lighting of the above picture of the beansprouts.

It turned out a WOW to me. It comes with my ordered egg, a pork chashu, bamboo shoot, black fungus, fish cake and some spring onions on top of the ramen.

I will suggest to go for less oil and light taste because the level of taste determines the thickness of the soup. After a while I did feel the broth was salty. My friend who opted for the strong taste has its soup dried up while we were taking his bowl of ramen which came with three pieces of chashu.

It is very nice presented and served by the waitress who called us by the name on the order form. Great experience of eating this ramen and greater moment spent together with them after the dinner with a movie show in the cinema on the same night.
