“A taste of the festive Matsuri”
Ramen Keisuke’s sixth outlet in Singapore is definitely a welcome addition to the East side of Singapore. For those who have queued 45 minutes or longer at Keisuke’s other outlet will attest, this ramen is worth queuing for. What is more impressive than holding on to the Tonkotsu King title, is that Keisuke is not resting on his laurels, instead bringing us 4 new ramen dish selections , each with a story – in this new Matsuri 祭 (Japanese word for Festival) concept outlet.
“Sushi. Omakase. Sake”
Just across from Clark Quay MRT at Carpenter street is a discreet hidden gem that serves up fine Japanese cuisine. Shinzo restaurant specializes in Omakase dinners; O-makase (お任せ) is a Japanese phrase meaning “I’ll leave it to you” which is directed to the chef in this instance. You basically let the chef decide the menu in a omakase.
Shinzo (心臓) means ‘heart’ in the Japanese language, and represents how each dish is created with love and passion from the heart. The restaurant believes that a good omakase experience is not just in the food, but in the overall ambiance and hospitality as well.

“More than just chicken”
I first came across Poulet in 2012 and two years later, the French-themed restaurant with their famed roasted chicken is doing better than ever. Poulet is literally ‘chicken’ in French, so that’s to be expected.
We were invited to check out their new menu – overhauling several new and improved offerings, that would surely surprise the ‘I-have-tried-everything-there’ to the ‘been-there, done-that’ jaded local foodies.
Now, check out what we tried at Poulet.
“Health and Beauty in Mind”
Shirokiya is a new Japanese restaurant in CHIJMES focusing on health benefits that come along with the meal. Its specialty is in bishoku-ryori (food that is beneficial for the body from inside out), and with its expanded menu, the use of more soken-ryori (traditional and natural Japanese seasoning).
One would assume something healthy would compromise taste, but Shirokiya’s izakaya style food is not only hearty, but flavourful as well.
“Inspired by Babette’s Feast”
