Pan fried beef with their special sauce. The beef was sliced really thin, like shabu shabu style. The portion I was served had not much beef, but a lot of sauce. So the whole thing was really salty. The boss took it back and served a new portion with just a bit of sauce. Much better. However, the sheer thinness of the beef makes it hard to taste the beef over the sauce.


Same thing as the beef. The pork was sliced really thin. The sauce basically overwhelmed the pork.


Chix stewed with egg n their special sauce. Great with rice. Chix was tender n the sauce tasted not badm but was tad salty, esp eaten on its own.


Pumpkin coquette. Not bad, nice ext, n inside got nice pumpkin fragrance. Hmmm, their fried stuff so far quite well done.

Pork curry. I liked this! The pork was crispy on the outside and juicy inside. The curry was also flavourful n not overly sweet.


Jap fish cakes, like normal fishcake Ö just prettier.


Marinated fried chix. Canít really taste the marinate, but the outside was crispy and inside juicy as you can see.


Salmon with sweet sauce. The fish was fresh, but can do with a bit more searing. Sauce was not overly sweet. Nice.

Mackerel with salt. Look at the searing done! Wonderful aroma. The fish was also fresh and fatty. I normally go for salmon cos of its fattiness, but this mackerel was better.


Flipped over 1 of the pieces. The bottom was nicely fried too. Yummy.


Mackerel with bean paste. Loved the freshness and fattiness of the mackerel. Yummy!!!


Ended up ordering another portion.

Liked their soft shell crab handroll, so I ordered a spider maki as the portion was smaller than a handroll. Doesnít it look pretty with the green veg coating.


Octopus ball. So so, nothing special.


Garlic rice. I like it too. 1 of the more fragrant garlic rice I ate.

Assorted tempura. The coating was well fried. Crispy n dun have tat smelly oily taste.


Ebi tempura. Well, the prawn was fresh, but could be bigger, but considering the price I’m paying, I’m not complaining. Dun bother with the fish tempura though. The fish was so thin tat you're basically eating the batter. No taste of the fish at all.


Beef soup with soba. Other than the fact tat I would prefer more beef, the soup was quite tasty, and noodles springy. Even their miso soups also quite nice. Not too salty, with a slight sweetness to it + served hot. I am perfectly happy drinking their miso soup instead of the green tea.


Pork belly. Unfortunately slightly tough. Could do with more searing to bring out the charred fragrance too.

Fried udon. Noodles had a good texture and springiness. Taste wise a bit bland.


Peach salad. Supposedly a starter, but it’s a great dessert cos its sweet and cold. Ate 3 portions of this.



The white foam thing at the top was egg white. I tasted yuzu, I think. The bottom was thinly sliced raddish or some veg. Quite refreshingly even though its just canned peaches, esp after eating all the fried stuff.



The dmg.

They are having a lunch promo at $19.80++. Drinks not provided, so I opted to pay $1 for free flow green tea. Service was good. The food was served quite fast, but then again, only 4 tables (including mine) of diners. The waitresses were friendly n have a warm smile! 1 was quite pretty. I chatted with her n she liked jap food too. Suggested she try Ikoi as their sashimi was better, heehee.
The boss also came around to enquire about the food (he changed the overly salty pan fried beef for me). The staff here were also willing to adjust the size of the servings to your liking, unlike some places where the dishes, eg, the carbo dishes, came in large servings. Initially, all my food came in 1 piece/slice. Only if i like the food, will i order again n request for multiple slices/pieces. 'Singles' friendly!

Nice place, decent food, nice lunch. All in all, reasonable value considering equivalent lunches at Ikoi or Irodori would cost around $30. I prefer the sashimi at Ikoi, but I think the cooked food spread at Minoriya is slightly wider n tasted better.

Its 1:1 promo, unless you are able to get another person to form a 'pair', you might have to pay the full price of $49.80++, and its definitely not worth it.

Also, from wat i know of your preference, i strongly doubt tat you will enjoy dining room. They do not have much seafood, and wat they had, eg, the sashimi n clayfish, not very good. Well, there are still the mussels and oysters ... but considering how the sashimi n clayfish went, i am not hopeful.

If you still wanna join, your're welcome, but just just be prepared lor. I can add you to the list first n then see if anyone else wanna join too, so as to form a 'pair'. Let me know.
