Ministry of Food, My Izakaya #1
#02-45 Bugis Junction
The Food Appreciation Club had our 2nd outing of the year to celebrate Christina’s birthday.
I had the salmon ($8.80++) from the ala carte section. Like the usual salmon you find in Japanese restaurants, this is pan fried with teriyaki sauce.
I think that they are over generous with the teriyaki sauce as the salmon is practically swimming in it. I had to pour it away so that the salmon is not over-soaked.
Christina’s Tri-Colour Bento ($7.80++) looks very neat and pretty.
The brown part is very finely minced beef and pork; the green is the cucumber; and the yellow part is the tomago egg. All these are packed atop rice in a bento box.
Yoke Yee’s Omelete Udon ($8.80++) comes in a very huge bowl! We were very amused that it’s bigger than any one of our faces. The udon is served in egg broth and has mushrooms and crabmeat floating in it.
We also had a complementary dessert since I have their membership card and it's my birthday month. Christina had the honor of choosing one from the vast number of desserts. The Chocolate Mitsu Mame ($8.50++) is basically a chocolate ice cream and soft serve sundae with chocolate sauce, fruits, corn flake, kanten jelly and waffle.
I like the jelly best! It’s actually made from the root part of plant and is totally unsweetened and tasteless. But I like its texture which is rather like eating cubes of aloe vera. The ice cream melts very fast and it’s probably a good idea to eat it first.Service was quite slow even though the place was not packed. The group seated at the next table had to ask for their bill twice. Overall, I think that this is a good place for affordable and healthy Japanese fare since no MSG, preservatives and artificial colourings and flavorings are added.
Students and holders of MOF membership cards enjoy 30% off between 2.30pm and 5.30pm on weekdays!
