Those who do not go to the area often will think of Ubi as a very remote place with nothing more than just industrial buildings and perhaps a couple of coffee shops. It doesn’t help that its name is so similar to the word ‘ulu’.
However, though unexplored by many, the area has tons of hidden food gems serving the cheapest and most delicious food around. Here is our list of 7 places that you may wish to check out, no matter if you’re working around the area or not!
Located in Oxley Bizhub—just a short walk from Tai Seng MRT Station—Yamato Izakaya is a melting pot of three Japanese dining concepts under one roof! Featuring the likes of famous unagi restaurant, Man Man, Ramen Hitoyoshi and Tora Tora, this restaurant is on its way to becoming a stalwart for local Japanese dining in Singapore.
Beloved for their fresh and modern renditions (and generous portions) of grilled Japanese eel, Man Man’s unagi dishes is a definite must-try. But be sure to save room for Ramen Hitoyoshi’s signature ramen as well as the vast array of sushi and donburi options courtesy of Tora Tora.
Yamato Izakaya is no doubt one spot to visit should you find yourself hankering for authentic, rock-solid Japanese food. On Saturdays, parking on site is free so that’s another plus point if you’re thinking of paying this restaurant a visit for a hearty family lunch.
