Great Bento Lunch with Godsis @ Anzu Japan Food Town on 9Feb2018

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

had a wonderful 2pax bento lunch with godsis at anze, japan food town level 4 wisma atria on 9.2.2018. ^^

meimei doesn’t take sashimi much. last time we had yakiniku at heijoen so we thought we have something different this time.

the dainty bentos are not really my preferred dishes, but this one only S$15 & i don’t really mind tonkatsu (breaded pork) as a main..

the set turned out to be quite delicious & good combo of dishes…meimei was very happy with the meal..

nice salad 

the salad was actually quite nice with the dressing. it was just shredded cabbage & some pickled radish..

nice salad 

the pickled radish was very good, and went perfectly with the salad. i tried the yuzu dressing (good), the pepper cream dressing (even better) and also the sweet tonkatsu sauce (quite ok)..

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

there was chawamushi, miso soup, seaweed, cold soba, pumpkin, tamago (very good, better than my own for sure), and a very good fish kakiage…

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

my preference still sashimi don & beef but this bento was very ok for me, and for just S$15 + 10% no GST.

after lunch meimei bought kopi at toast masters…nice lunch & chat with godsis.

Opening Hours:

Best T-rex Prime Ribs Bakuteh on 7Feb2018

prime ribs bakuteh

i bought some nice fresh indonesia prime ribs to make the red wine pork ribs for the 4pax OPS homecooked donburi on 1.2.2018. 

so there were 6 large meaty ribs left in the chiller, i would say easily 600g+.

today i decided to cook bakuteh on 4.2.2018. ^^

one OPS friend used to joke T-rex bkt!

of course the ribs already cut in 1/2, otherwise its even larger…what is important thought is the meaty ribs with layer of fat that makes it very tasty & heavenly sinful…what am i saying???

prime ribs bakuteh

making bakuteh is like next to effortless…

1 packet ilc bkt sachet. 1kg pork about 600 – 700g..a bulb of garlic cloves. & that’s it. boil for 50mins.

prime ribs bakuteh 

the bakuteh was absolutely delicious, for all the reasons i mentioned – meaty, layer of fat flavouring the meat, though tender texture with bounce in the bite.

Lovey Fish Belly Noodles & Fatty Thai Wanton Mee on 7Feb2018

WM & me

my OPS bro WM has been waxing lyrical about this fried fish head noodles & thai wanton mee at beach road. so this morning we decided to meet for makan there at 10.30am on 4.2.2018.

S$5 fish belly noodles soup

like early time for me & no customers but they said they sold out the fish head.

deep-fried fish head can be very nice but often they are boney & no much meat, so i don’t miss it much unless i know it is good…

S$5 fish belly noodles soup

this fish belly soup as it turned out was very good! nice batter, fresh fish & thick cut about 6+1smaller pieces.

the broth was so very tasty, lots of ooomph! & the noodles were really interesting, lite a very tasty yeemeen perhaps al dente??? anyway very nice la & not common like the thick bee hoon (which also nice, i like).

fish head & fish belly noodles stall

not sure the name of this fish noodles stall…they also served tomyam fish noodles so maybe it’s the same owner as fatty thai…

fish noodles soup stall

 like this fish noodles best this morning…

S$4 thai wanton noodles

the thai wanton noodles was also good…

S$4 thai wanton noodles

it looked no different from our wanton noodles…there were 2 crispy & 2soup wanton…the char siew was better, more flavourful than most wanton mee..& they gave lots of vegetables & lar pok (crispy lard)..

& the special was some spicy thai chilli looked a small teaspoonful, but it did add a subtle quite wonderful flavour to the noodles..maybe can get this powder & do at home..

thai wanton noodles

very enjoyable bowl of goodness..

fetty thai wanton noodles

i would take this again.

S$3 char kuay teow

since we were there, decided to share a S$3 char kuay teow..

it was good too, not exceptional, completely competent..

S$3 char kuay teow

enjoyed it too..

he ji 和记

a great outing this morning, like brunch just enjoying a few noodle dishes together & chatting & sharing.

Ho JIak! Saba Don 烧鲭鱼丼 on 4Feb2018

roasted saba 烧鲭鱼

had some vinegared sushi rice leftover fro the 4pax OPS homecooked donburi dinner on 1.2.2108.

& some long unused cheap frozen saba in the freezer.

saba is fishy & oily fish so actually very flavourful…difficult to eat w/o rice.

i cleaned & washed the fish thoroughly with salt & pat dry with kitchen towels. i decided to roast it in the oven instead of pan-fry as it gave a dryer less oily (outside) texture, more like what you get in japan…so 10mins in 250degC oven.

roasted saba 烧鲭鱼

came out quite perfect actually.

saba was very “pang” flavourful becos of the oil & not fishy…would still be fishy for wife but for me very the ok…

& of course quite perrrrfect with the vinegared sushi rice.

a statisfying quick meal.
