Izakaya Nijumaru is one hidden gem (literally) in Cuppage Plaza.
It is tucked at a corner on the second level of Cuppage Plaza and you wouldn’t otherwise walk past it unless you were particularly looking out for it. The nondescript outlet has been around for three decades. We actually only discovered it about seven years ago but it has since remained as a favourite of ours whenever we want a simple, affordable Japanese meal in Orchard Road.
But if you find it, we say you walk right in and treat yourselves to a good Japanese meal. You’d be pleased to know that the prices are very reasonable and the menu is comprehensive.
Mid-Autumn is a widely celebrated festival among Chinese all over the world. It is a heart-warming occasion that brings family and loved ones together for a time of bonding while admiring the bright full moon and enjoying decadent mooncakes and tea.
As with every year, we want nothing but the best for this occasion—luxurious mooncakes of the highest quality that everybody enjoys.
This year, InterContinental Singapore’s award-winning restaurant Man Fu Yuan unveils a divine collection of handcrafted mooncakes featuring four new tantalising snowskin mooncakes that come in floral flavours, and a selection of six baked mooncakes handcrafted by Executive Chinese Chef Kwan Yiu Kan using time-honoured recipes.
Bara Chirashi Don is a rice bowl topped with a variety of diced and marinated sashimi, and its popularity is unparalleled. But they don’t usually come cheap.
A hidden gem along New Upper Changi Road, Izumi Japanese Fish Market has successfully packaged affordability together with quality in their Bara Chirashi Don (S$11.80).
Other than the Bara Chirashi Don, it also has other donburi on the menu—the cheapest donburi on the menu is only S$5.50!
Nobody goes to Sunshine Plaza unless they are printing name cards, but you would have heard about the famous Victor’s Kitchen and made a trip there for dim sum.
But we have another reason for you to visit that otherwise random mall.
Our search for good and affordable eateries led us to this discreet Japanese shop called Ichi Tei, which is located inside Sunshine Plaza. Ichi Tei’s set meals are less than S$14, which makes for a decent lunch or dinner. READ ON
Ippoh, a famous tempura restaurant in Osaka, is opening its casual dining concept in Singapore this month.
Ask any local in Osaka to recommend a tempura shop in Osaka and they are likely to direct you to Ippoh, which is said to be the oldest and best tempura eatery in the region. No foodie would pass up the chance to give this prestigious restaurant a try.
And if you aren’t heading to Japan anytime soon, that’s fine too because you will have the chance to taste Ippoh’s crispy and delicate Osaka style tempura right here in Singapore.
Located in the heart of Kovan—just a stone’s throw away from Kovan MRT Station—is Ice Edge Cafe.
The cafe-cum-restaurant has been around for a decade and has gained a huge following over the past years with its hearty savouries and stellar sweets. Dishes served here are very affordable and generously portioned; there is even a perpetual one-for-one lunch promotion* on weekdays!
You might have heard of their legendary Mao Shan Wang Lava Cake, Waffles and Homemade Brownies, but Ice Edge Cafe is more than that. It offers a menu of wallet-friendly dishes (most mains are priced under S$20). If you haven’t been, you are missing out, dude.
