If you had read the The Sunday Times Lifestyle Food Section yesterday, you would have come across the article regarding the large number of new Japanese eateries conglomerating at Millenia Walk which deeply excites me. However, there is yet another mall which houses an extensive number of Jap eateries that I think is worthy of mention – The Central Mall @ Clarke Quay. Diners looking for casual Jap dining are definitely spoilt for choice here, with Waraku having a strong foothold with all of it’s 3 branch types here(namely Pasta de Waraku, Waraku Casual Dining & Mr Curry), highly raved ramen shops Santuoka Ramen and Marutama Ramen, Watami, Kyomomoyama, Azabu Sabo, Jap fusion restuarant Ma Maison and last but not least my favourite casual jap dining restuarant Sun with Moon all situated within the mall. 

Today’s lunch brought me to Kyomomoyama, a Jap restaurant that first opened shop in Taiwan(or so I have heard). The simple yet elegant decor and polite staff had me always assuming that dining here wasn’t so much casual dining as it was casual paying through the nose. It was only today that I realised that Kyomomoyama offers very decent and afforable set lunches starting from $6++. Quite unbelievable and it made me question on the quality.


The Salmon Don($6++) was first to arrive. I was surprised that there was such a generous combination of grilled as well as Salmon Sashimi. For this price, it was indeed worth the money even if the salmon was thinly sliced.

The Sushi Set($6++) was pretty awesome too. 10 sushis for $6? People might have mistaken me from shopping at the Jap corner of Fairprice. Oh did I mention that lunch sets come with a decent Miso Soup too? I actually felt quite bad because it felt like I was shortchanging the restaurant.

Food here was a steal with uncompromising service and quality. The staff was also sincerely amicable and warm. Notwithstanding the fact that I haven’t really tried out much of the menu, I’m sure it is pretty decent. After all, if they could do it with $7, just imagine the indulgence when you do start throwing your $10 bills at them.

Bon Appetit!
