Kaiho Sushi – Good Japanese with a Mismatched Price

I am finally at Cuppage Plaza to check out some Japanese restaurants. I have heard that there are many hidden gems tucked in this old-school shopping complex. There is nothing much here apart from Japanese restaurants and Japanese KTVs (adult karaoke joints). Kaiho Sushi, on the 3rd floor, wasn’t quite what I expected to find. It looks like your average basic Japanese restaurant with its … Continue reading Kaiho Sushi – Good Japanese with a Mismatched Price

Sushi Airways – Japanese Food in a Plane

Sushi Airways is the brain child of ex-Grand Hyatt chef Wong Eng Chun. It is based on the idea of fresh seafood that are air-flown 4 times a week to the little city state of Singapore.

Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏

Marutama Ramen still remains my favourite ramen joint in Singapore…. maybe it is because it is one of the first joints I visited.

The branch in Liang Court is basic and functional. It is dimly lit … Continue reading Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏
