Izakaya Nijumaru Restaurant
5 Koek Road #02-10 Cuppage Plaza Singapore
This is a well-known Japanese restaurant in Orchard. I know a lot of people has done reviews about it. But some Singaporean always have complaints about everything.
It's a very cosy restaurant. Earthy if I might say so. I liked it. My wife and I sat at the counter. There was a lot of chattering. The lighting was soft and warm. In a cool rainy night, it's just nice to huddle together and have some nice food.
We ordered some grill food. The mushroom was tasty. Very hard to grill mushroom, cooked but not burnt. Compliments to the grill station chef. We also had other stuff.
Yaki Soba. Japanese don't know how to stir-fry noodles well, but I just wanted some of that. So we ordered it.
Before we left, I itchy mouth and ordered a Yaki Onigri. It turned out that the outter crust was too burnt and hard. But for someone who likes a bit of "Chao Tah" taste, it might be up your alley. Yaoki in JB still makes the best Yaki Onigri outside of Japan.
Just before we left, two Singaporean guys sat down beside us and kinda don't know what to order. When the auntie waitress came to take their orders, one of them asked: "you got mee sua or not?" Yeah, got to Japanese restaurant and order mee sua. What a fucking moron....
