A beef rendition of the deep-fried crumbed fillet has taken Tokyo by storm and it is with little surprise that Singapore has quickly jumped on the bandwagon too. The hearty gyukatsu dish is served in a manner similar to tonkatsu, where the red meat is complemented with shredded cabbage and white rice.
Ginza Kushi Katsu is the very first gyukatsu restaurant in Singapore and of course, we had to check it out. Mind you, the Japanese could queue hours just to grab a portion of these beef cutlets. Fortunately, there were no existing queues on a weekday (during lunchtime peak period) here in Singapore.
Japan is home to many remarkable food and Japanese cuisine is something that the world loves. We’ve got sushi and sashimi, ramen and udon, omu rice and tonkatsu.
And the latest dish that people in Tokyo are crazy about is gyukatsu – deep-fried breaded beef cutlet. It is very much like the tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet) that we are all familiar with.
Well, because we are such fans of Japanese cuisine, we had to give gyukatsu a go, of course. Here’s where you can try the famous gyukatsu in Tokyo – Gyukatsu Motomura.
Gold Coast is one of the most liveable cities in Australia. It combines a beach and a city, and this amazing paradise comes with many many great food options.
Queensland is home to many gourmets. That probably explains the exciting environment, and there will be no lack of good food – especially when in Gold Coast.
We have rounded up some of our favourites – from cafes to ethnic restaurants to sophisticated restaurants, here is a Guide To The Best Dining Places in Gold Coast.
We had one of our best Japanese meals this year at Ginza Yoshihiro.
And this is one new Japanese restaurant in town that you definitely must know about. With over 30 years of history, Ginza Yoshihiro first started their family legacy at Ginza, Tokyo. Priding themselves on their signature specialty oden, the Japanese restaurant enjoys great popularity and is now spreading the love of Japanese food in Singapore.
Ginza Yoshihiro at Marina Mandarin Hotel is everything we want in an authentic Japanese restaurant, and if not, more. We dare say it is one of the best new Japanese restaurants in Singapore.

Working styles are no longer looking the same as before, and increasingly so since 2015. Instead of sticking to a permanent office or working in a crammed cafe, individual freelancers and startups now have the luxury of choosing conducive offices and changing their work environment on a monthly or even daily basis.
Many co-working spaces have sprung up across Singapore and most of these innovative offices are designed to offer convenient business services at an affordable daily or monthly fee to budding entrepreneurs.
From award-winning The Co to women-only Woolf Works, here is our guide to 8 Co-Working Spaces in Singapore.
High ceilings and a spacious interior aside, walking into Grain Traders feels just like visiting an old friend. The aroma of fresh veggies and proteins is one so comforting and familiar; we knew we were in for some wholesome goodness.
A new addition to Capitagreen in Raffles Place, Grain Traders serves up healthy grains, together with proteins and vegetables that are far from haphazardly cooked and prepared. And yes, they are healthy AND tasty food.
g.spa is certainly no new kid in town, but it is quite possibly a hidden gem that many dismiss too quickly from its old building’s facade. We were one of those who overlooked them every time we drove past Guillemard Road, for the building looks really unpromising from the outside and we honestly did not think much.
Some time last month, we stepped in for a spa session, and we were shocked; somewhat dumbfounded, in fact! g.spa is HUGE, and this S$3.5mil development is as elaborate, if not more than most of the reputable spa places in Singapore.
And just when you think it is “just another spa house”, you might want to bring your attention to their facilities. g.spa is open for 24hours and it offers a whole range of signature treatments. That’s not all. The admission also includes unlimited helpings of food from G-café.
Readers of ladyironchef get a promotion of S$50 off your main treatments when you quote “Ladyironchef” upon booking/ checking out. More details at the end of this post.

This humble restaurant currently has three outlets (Westgate, Paya Lebar Square and Bedok Mall) in Singapore and it plans to open a few more outlets so that everyone can enjoy affordable meat-free meals.
The best thing about GreenDot is most dishes on the menu are priced under S$10 – you can have a well-balanced meal without burning a hole in your pocket.
