Review (17)
Having few occasion here, the review was good so revisited this time. Ordered a Shio spicy hot Ramen and chicken nanban original. This time seem awaiting time short. The serving time about 10mins. The standard of toppling is separate and consists of Duck meat, slided vegetables , seasoning half cooked eggs and seaweed. The noodles can choose from thin to thicker type. I like the spicness of chilli mixture into the college. Soap. The taste is so warm and nice. Overall is serve with Claypot and keep warm. The chicken piece is toppling with their home made tar tar sauce. Look like some mixture of core. Not bad taste except for the vegetables which have different sauce. I missed their signature Bijin men which is still my favourite after serve after 1700hrs only. continue reading

I've read high reviews on this Japanese collegen hotpot that is highly raved by reviewers and bloggers (Instagram, online reviews) I saw online. There is also always a long queue outside the store, so I've always wanted to try. There is no reservations allowed strictly walk-ins. I understand that they want people to have all arrived to be seated. But one of my friend had gone to the ladies, so we(2 of us) decided to could go in first.*Only 1 and half hour eating time* (that is more than enough for us, so I asked to go in so we can start first)At the door, we were greeted by the manager with extremely high ego and attitude that repeatedly (3 times) reminded me that we only have 1.5hours to dine in. It was probably due to the Q Tsukada Nojo usually have on a friday night. I assured him that we would dine within the 1.5 hours before he issued us seats.Compared to Hai D iLao or JPOT, Tsukada Nojo is really disappointing. Comparing the service, portion, ambiance, pricing and food quality/variety, they really lose out by them a lot. My total bill for 3 pax off their regular 25++ dinner set and a bowl of white rice($4) was $92.89.*One small bowl of plain rice costs $4.The only thing special(selling point) about them is the soup comes in curd form, not like the normal liquid form. Other than that, please go to other places to eat and not get con by the Q & reviews, it is just NORMAL/SO-SO.*there is less than 20 seats inside that's why there is always queue.That's my sincere truthful review, I hope no one would get disappointed if you are a regular to Jpot or HDL. I don't even want to post any photo cause I'm extremely disappointed by the service to start with and the food is a bigger led down. Warning you to just stick to what is original Everyone have different opinion/ taste buds, I'm just sharing mine. continue reading

Ling intro-ed us to 美人锅 and we met up for an impromtu dinner!It serves only hotpot for dinner. 'Reservation' starts after 5pm, and you have to be down physically at the restaurant to place your name on the waiting list.Waiting list is usually full before 6pm I heard! Such a hot pot (lousy pun, but intended) indeed!Guess what is so special about it?COLLAGEN soup base!No prize for guessing why it is so popoular then, especially among the ladies We watched the process of preparing the hot pot over and over again while waiting for our seats. Must have seen for over 10 times :'(The set if priced at $25 per pax, minimum 2 persons.And these are what you'll get! So scrumptious!The broth is made from chicken bones, boiled for 8 hours until they dissolved and solidified/kept like jellies below:Looking like beancurd!These pudding-like solidified soup/collagen are melted to reveal chicken pieces and serves as a tasty soup base.Golden Jidori soup.We drank it in the sake cups provided before any other ingredients were added into the pot.The soup is thick, yet not too overwhelming.Slightly saltish for me, but with every mouth I took, it feels like my skin is getting more springy and elastic. Hahaha!Soup is refillable upon request.So drink to your heart's beauty's content!The Bijin Nabe (Beauty Pot) setthat comes at 25 per pax.Minimum order is a 2pax set shown above.Just from the look of it, you know how healthy the pot is for our bodies with the colourful ingredients, consisting of mainly leafy greens and lean meat!Tori TsukuniChicken meatbal in a wooden spatula for easy cooking~Whole shrimps that help to tone up the soup base even further!Each set also comes with a choice of mochi mochi noodle, rice noodle, or thin egg noodle.We had mochi mochi noodle since I read somewhere that it is the recommendation choice.It sure didn't fail my expectation!The noodles were QQ and springy, like mochi! What an apt name for it The professional helped us with the hotpot.See how beautiful she made it to be! ^^Watemelon radish.So pretty.Do they have it in supermarkets??Just one more pic since it's so good to look at 4 unique types of spices you should try with the chicken meat.From the top left (in clockwise direction): Red chili oil, Yuzu pepper, Negi ginger oil, Chili shoyuWe ordered some sides as well.I forgot what is this called, but apparently this is 'Very famous in Japan!' It turns out to be warm japanese/gluttinous rice wrapped with grilled bacon/pork and cheese or other 3 options you can choose.Egg pudding (creme brulee)Tsukada Nojo has a very cute loyalty system that promotes its customers after every 2 or 3 visits!Since it was the first time for me and Chee, we started out as assistant manager yesterday Each time you get a promotion, Tsukada Nojo will give 'rewards' like free appetizers or side dishes and so on.Our next level would be the Manager! Hohoho.And here's the complimentary dessert we got.Matcha pudding with very cute chocolate art~Arigato! ^^ continue reading

Wanted to try out the hotpot for lunch during the weekday, and found out that hotpot is only valid during dinner on weekdays, and whole-day during the weekends! I came at the wrong timing Nevertheless, I went in despite the slight disappointment.I actually went to two different branches on two separate days, but both branches gave me a very warm welcome with their Japanese greetings.They do not have much variety, and perhaps ramen is the one to go for. Given only like 4 options for ramen, we had the Tori Nikomi Soba Shio ($16.80)and another was the Tori Nikomi Soba Spicy Hot ($16.80) ramen. You also get to choose between 3 types of noodle, such as thin egg noodle, rice noodle, and the thick mochi-mochi noodle.As explained by the crew, the ramen soup is exactly the same used for their hotpot. Surprisingly, this was what we came for! Their collagen soup! But of course, hotpot would be a more sumptuous meal Anyway, ramen came with the toppings placed on top of a "dish cover". Told by the crew (again), we should taste the soup first, before dropping the toppings in. I love the thick, creamy and flavorful collagen soup as it slid through my throat! Too bad they do not offer free-flow collagen soup.For more details, please visit http://foodesteem.blogspot.com/2014/07/tsukada-nojo.html continue reading

For full review, please visit http://www.makeyourcaloriescount.com/2014/03/sg-tsukada-nojo-beauty-collagen-hotpot.htmlWhen my friend first told me of this, I was skeptical of how good it would be given the not-very-appetising looks of the collagen-rich slabs. Aptly described by some as a firmer version of tau-huay, I was pretty amazed by how it could all dissolve to form the hotpot soup base.So popular that it wasn't taking in any more seatings at about 7.15pm on a Friday night, their queue is spotted as early as 6ish. Having limited portions of soup base to cater for the dinner crowd, they'd stop taking in guests once they've sold out and the collagen pot is only available for dinner.The magic came as we were served with this pot of what seemed like tau hway (beancurd), and got me wondering how exactly am I gonna have my hotpot!Bijin Nabe ($25++ per pax)Placed on top an induction cooker where the pot slowly heated up, we then saw bubbles forming and the pieces of 'tau hway' sinking in, only to realise that it was dissolving with the heat!After about 5 minutes, the pot then dissolved into a smooth soup base, where the service crew then scooped a small cup each for us to taste the original flavour of the collagen base.I've always been a skeptic of soups served outside, pampered with flavourful soups from real ingredients cooked at home. This, however, managed to impress with a mouthful that packed solid flavours from its chicken soup base, naturally sweet that was subtle that it grew on. It's the kind of soup that makes you feel blessed after a long day of work, reminiscent of the kind I get after 4-5 hours of soup boiling from home.A taste of the chicken beneath was also an appetising start, tender and soft, with the light flavour of the soup it boiled in.The spread included yellow zucchini, watermelon radish, lady's finger, baby corn and we'd replaced the prawns with another spatula of chicken meatball. Friends would know that I'm no veggie lover, and this looked quite intimidating initially, though I must say the ingredients had converted me, and I'd enjoyed every one of them (except lady's finger still), with the soup that went well with these.With every ingredient adding a slight sweetness to the soup, we ended up with a flavourful base that was too addictive! (note: first refill is complimentary, with subsequent ones being chargeable)They then gave us this to mix into the soup, which tasted slightly savoury hence we'd just mixed small portions into our individual bowls instead of the whole pot. It's pretty amazing how the pot of soup came just as a light one, like a white canvas, slowly being coloured and filled with flavours, and still tasting super good!Thick Mochi noodlesThis was one that my friend said I had to try! Unlike usual udon or noodles, this was more Q with a slight bounce to every bite. Be sure not to soak it in for too long as it becomes too limp after a while. I loved the chewiness of this and certainly went well after being blanched in the soup to absorb its flavours.We had this last to go with the hot pot, with this staple filling us up pretty quickly. After you're done and having the hot pot simmer down, there'll be a crystallized layer on top and it was surprisingly sweet and we were hoping collagen-packed.Nikumaki Onigiri (Yuzu Pepper & Mayo/ Original) ($3.80/ $3.50)While we wanted a variety to complete our meal, we'd overestimated our stomach space and this was too filling with rice balls wrapped in layers of pork. While the marinade had a nice savoury touch to it, I didn't quite like the strong porky taste and would have preferred it to be more tender.The one with yuzu pepper and mayo didn't taste quite different, I would have preferred a stronger yuzu taste for a much needed refreshing touch.Pleasantly surprised as we'd been overly full by the time we finished, I loved how they'd actually put in effort to plate the jelly desserts, thanking customers and leaving a good note to encourage recurring customers. Besides, everyone will also receive a name card with a stamp, with different positions based on the number of visits.This is then further tabulated into their leaderboard, which is a pretty smart idea of tracking return visits!Impressed by their service, attention to details and creating those little gimmicks here and there, it's a place where I'm likely to visit again very soon, especially if I'm feeling a tad under weather. Eh start serving the collagen hot pot (or Bijin Nabe) from 5pm while only ramen is served for lunch. Be sure to go early, or have a friend to go chope a place first! continue reading
