Have passed by this Japanese restaurant at Millenia Walk quite a few times, but was never tempted to try it. Not until we heard some good reviews about the food here.
The restaurant has a unique shop front, so you can't miss it.
One good indication of whether the food here is authentic or not is checking how many Japanese are eating here. And we are pleased to see that more than half of the customers here are Japanese.
The various sauce displayed on each table. We chose a seat along the big counter.
Ice water is served to all diners.
We ordered 2 sets, so was served 2 servings of refreshing salad and cold tofu.
I like their Odenya's Style Dashimaki Tamago (S$6.90) - Japanese Egg Rolls. Quite a hearty appetizer by itself.
This Tomato Oden (S$15.80), though quite expensive, is unique in a way that the acidic but sweet tomato is baalnced by the creamy cream and cheese on top. Carefully stewed in Oden soup.
To go along our food, we had Shochu with Soda and Calpis (S$9.80) + Super Nikka whisky with soda (S$10).
Sendai Gyutan Steak M size (S$43.70) - Grilled Gyutan (ox tongue), Tofu, Salad, Oxtail Soup, Oden 3 pieces, Tororo, Nanbanmiso, Mugimeshi (Rice cooked with barley), Chawanmushi, Satsumaage (fish cake), Salmon Sashimi and dessert. This place is famous for its grilled ox tongue. Served with barley rice, can be mixed with grated Japanese yam paste.
The Grilled Gyutan was really tender and full of flavour. I know the idea of eating tongue may not be everybody's idea of food, but if you have never try it, please try!
Shiraishi Uh-Men Zaru (S$12) - Cold Shiraishi Noodles
A very unique Ginger Satsuma-Age (S$6.90) - Surimi (Fish paste) and flour is mixed to make Japanese fish cakes. The ginger added some uniqueness to the dish.
A pipping bowl o Oden Teishoku Set (S$15.80) - Oden mixed 7 pieces, Tofu, Salad, Oxtail Soup and Mugimeshi
Ended our feast with a blast. Had the Zunda Mochi (S$6.90). The Mochi was grilled on charcoal fire till crispy on the outside, yet warm and chewy in the inside. Highly recommended.
