Was searching at 4th of Takashimaya for lunch. Saw this external look different and cosy.
Ordered from the menu, Garlic chicken and seafood cream sauce pasta.

Garlic chicken -$17.80.
The chicken is well cooked and look delicious. The plate also look bigger than normal. The meat is fresh and tender.

Seafood cream sauce pasta. -$18.30.
The sauce is creamy like cheesy. With the pasta toppling and seafood mixtures was a well done pasta. Personally the sauce is very special and should not give it a miss. The seafood consists or prawns, sotong and mushrooms.

Hot potato gratin -$7.80
Was my first attempt for this ordering.
Given 3 small slide of garlic bread and this hot potato with 2 eggs mixture was very well combination. Scope and place on this breads is perfect. Just if they can give few more breads was a totally perfect recommendation.

Overall a good experience and recommend for all food explorers.

Nonetheless, I begrudgingly went and thought of the lessons we learned from our recent marriage encounter seminar and our principal sponsors. Chalk it up as one of those "Wife, be submissive" practice exercises. Why not.

Ma Maison is an Asian-French fusion restaurant founded in Nagoya. Tonkatsu is one of their spin-off restaurants known for serving up... well... tonkatsu or deep-fried pork cutlets. They have chicken, seafood and vegetarian options as well but it's the pork hire (fillet) or rosu (loin) punters queue up for. They serve the katsu in sets so you get unlimited portions of shredded cabbage, rice and miso soup (which is quite a winner!) too.

Condiments come aplenty. Tonkotsu sauce options were either sweet or spicy but I couldn't really tell the difference. I was more excited to see the bottle of Japanese sesame dressing. Be still my heart.

We had side orders of ebi (prawn) and kaki (oyster) katsu (SG$4 per piece) for variety. Dreading the oily spillage at first bite, I hesitantly picked an ebi katsu thinking it would be another overly breaded piece but was pleasantly surprised by how light and crisp the coating was. I could actually taste the prawn! The oyster was plump and juicy as well but I still think oysters are best served fresh off the sea.

I was torn between the Hungarian mangalica rosu katsu and the kurobuta rosu katsu sets (SG$32 each) but I ended up having the latter, their signature cut, to set the standard. I bit off more than I could chew - literally - as the cut was quite thick. The batter was crisp and the meat was surprisingly juicy although some of the edges were slightly more cooked than I would have liked. Pork flavour swam in my mouth and I appreciated the thoughtfulness of prep and quality of meat.

Claims of the restaurant serving the "best tonkatsu in Singapore" may as well be valid and after a very satisfying meal, I get why people queue up. It's very good tonkatsu. But would I? Probably, but I prefer not to!

I have walked past this place a few times and there is always a long queue waiting at the restaurant. Tonight I decide to join the queue to find out for myself if the food is really worth queuing up for. Tonkatsu by Ma Maison exclusively serves up a variety of Tonkatsu dishes; breaded deep-fried pork cutlets that is popular in Japan. Tonkatsu by Ma Maison was founded by Akinori Terazawa in Tokyo, Japan back in 1976. Currently there is outlets in Japan, Singapore and Malaysia. The outlet at Mandarin Gallery is located next to the escalator. Decorated with various vases on the walls, which brightens up the black coloured restaurant. One can easily spot the cooks busy cooking in the open concepted kitchen.

Do not think that the menu is only on deep fried pork, there is also prawn, oyster and chicken too. The menu is divided into different type of katsu from Miso Katsu (Deep Fried Pork Katsu with Miso Sauce), Jumbo Ebifurai (Deep Fried Jumbo Prawn), popular Rosu Katsu (Deep Fried Pork Loin),Hire Katsu (Deep Fried Pork Fillet), Kaki Furai (Deep Fried Oyster), Iroiro Katsu (Assorted Katsu which are combination of different katsu), to Okonomi Katsu (Variety Katsu such as Chicken Cheese Roll, Deep Fried Prawn, Deep Fried Chicken Cutlet, Homemade Katsu Curry, Katsu Don).

For each order of a main course, it is served with rice, shredded cabbage and tonjiru ( miso soup with pork) which are refillable. For rice, there is an option of plain steamed rice or jyukkokumai (multi grain rice). The rice here is not cooked in the usual electric rice cooker, but in the traditional Japanese way in metal pots with wooden covers. One could see the cooking process of the rice while queuing up. The tonjiru contains more than 20 types of ingredients such as radish, beancurd skin, and carrots and is cooked a day before in the Nagoya Style.

The premium cut of meat is marbled with fat, which at first look one would take it as uncooked meat. It simply melts in the mouth at the mouthful. It is gone too soon for me.

The set consists of beautifully crumbed pork loins and fillets, accompanied by panko-covered prawns.Although the meat has a mucher tougher texture compared to the above set, it still taste not bad with its juicy inside, and goes well with either the spicy sauce or sweet sauce.

At the table, there is variety of condiments to go with the food. There is spicy and sweet sauces to dip the meat with, but I could not taste much different between the two sauces. There is also freshly grounded sesame for those who wish to have in the Tonkatsu sauce. There is sesame dressing which goes very well with the shredded cabbage that comes with each main course. Soyu for grated radish.

Dessert is served after the meal. Dessert comes in a form of tea jelly in a small bowl. Full of honey flavour but not too sweet. Just the right cleanser after a heavy meal.

Overall it is a very delicious and filling meal. But it is a bit difficult to get the attention of the staffs as the place is quite crowded. And I am also quite put off by the long queue which could snake pass the next door restaurant.

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is a restaurant under Ma Maison. The restaurant is easy to find as it is just located after a turn from the escalator. It is a mid-sized restaurant that had seats within the shop space as well as along the corridors outside the restaurant. The usual dining table seating and booths are mostly catered for groups of fours, so be prepared to take up the counter seating facing the kitchen if you are going alone or with another friend. The menu is pretty extensive, with different types of meat available and with or without curry, though it revolves around fried items mostly.

I went for the Chicken Cheese Roll which somewhat resembled Chicken Kiev/Chicken Corden Bleu less the ham in favour of some vegetables. I pretty much liked the tangy sauce that is placed on the table for you to dip your Tonkatsu because it was sweet yet sour at the same time which makes it insanely addicting. The breaded crust was also crispy and not greasy at all. The shortfall was that the chicken was quite tough and it felt a bit little on ingredients to justify the hefty price tag. For the record there was so little cheese in it it was barely cheesy at all; no stringy goodness coming off from it. All you pay for was the soup, rice, a rather tough chicken roll stuffed with vegetables and a heap of salad with no dressing.

Having a big feast with my fellow colleagues in this posh Japanese restaurant at Orchard. Restaurant is super spacious and cooling. Service is friendly and helpful. Have bought the deep fried katsu set, which is the pork meat is very juicy and tender. The outer crust is very crunchy and not too oily. Meat is super thick in texture but is totally not tough. Rice is fragrant and portion is generous. Cabbage is also very fresh and crunchy. Super filling and value for money.

Tonkatsu, pork cutlet in Japanese has been an uprising trend in Singapore. One of the famous ones include Tonkatsu by Ma Maison at Mandarin Gallery.

For starters, with each set you order, it comes with grinded radish. It's something like an appetizer where you mix their shoyu sauce with the radish and eat it. It is quite refreshing and serves as a good opening to the meal.

The highlight would of course be it's Tonkatsu. Having tried Tonkichi's Tonkatsu and really love it, I was really curious how the one at Ma Maison would be like. Prices here are pretty much the same as other Tonkatsu restaurants, ranging from $23-$35, depending on the type of pork you choose. Each set comes with free flow rice and cabbage.

I prefer the pork cutlet meat to be juicy and that comes with the price of fats in the meat. My choice would be pork loin meat or Rosu Katsu Set. The one here is cooked nicely, rendering the meat not too tough to chew. However, I find that it lacks the juiciness that I was looking for.

For those who like a mixture of pork loin and pork cutlet (which is less fatty), you can go for the mixed set. The pork cutlet is similarly cooked well, the batter is not too thick. Like I mention earlier, I still prefer pork loin. And yes, the cabbage with the Japanese salad dressing is awesome. It sort of balances the fried Tonkatsu, leaving you feeling that you have not sinned as much after eating a slab of heaty pork.

Overall, I think Tonkatsu for Ma Maison did not really surprise and amaze me with it's Tonkatsu. I was really looking for the juiciness in the meat which was lacking. All in all, I feel that it was still a good meal and for those who love to eat Tonkatsu, you should have a meal here. One thing to note is the queue! After 7pm, the queue is quite long. So, make your way there early to avoid having to wait for a long time.

The service seems pretty slow as when tables were empty, it took the staff awhile to show people to the seat. And the wait for the food is LONG!

I saw people who were seated pretty early on and yet after 20 mins (as our queue slowly inched forward), their food have not arrived. So don't come here if you're starving as the wait for seat plus food would've left you shaking on the ground.

I had the Rosu Tonkatsu set. The set comes with cabbage which is free flow, a side of miso soup and radish. Pretty standard set I would think. I love the sesame dressing that every table have. Squeeze some over the plain ol' cabbage and it turns into a delicious salad. The miso soup was also good - thick and has loads of ingredients inside instead of the standard miso soup where we get only seaweed.

The pork (tonkatsu) wasn't too fantastic. I think Tonkichi's katsu are better. These are okay standard, not that crispy and not as hot as I want them to be when they arrive at the table. So for me, I won't queue so long for these katsu next time.

The ramen was served with a nicely boiled egg, some vegetables and a slice of meat. I feel that the amount of meat served was considered little. Texture of the noodles tasted fine. Egg was good though. The soup base tasted average and tasted peppery towards half of the bowl of soup. Nothing fantastic.

However, with the flee flow of the rice, salad and the miso soup, I find it reasonable for 3 person to share the katsu (240g). The katsu was cover with a thin layer of crispy batter which was surprisingly not as oily as what i had expected and the thick pork was juicy and tender without dryness or hardness.
