I've finally tried the much-talk-about Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe (Beauty Pot - Collagen Hotpot). My buddy reached at about 6.20pm & the restaurant is already almost full. I rush my way to get there as fast as I could cos they do not sit you in if you do not have a full attendance. Alternatively, you can leave your contact number with them & they will sms you when there is an available table (which could take u to 1.5hrs). I managed to reach before the last table is being taken!
The buddy googled & says it's a must to order Nikumaki Onigiri. Basically it's rice wrapped in bacon. The rice is very soft & it was very delicious. We couldn't decide which one to order, so we ordered all the 4! Nikumaki Onigiri (standard), Nikumaki Onigiri with Cheese, Nikumaki Onigiri with Yuzu pepper & Mayo, Nikumaki Onigiri with Red Chilli Oil. We were told that the best way to enjoy it is to wrapped it with the lettuce. I love the one with chilli oil most
The lump of pudding look-alike thingy is actually the collagen (fats!).
Once heated, it will melt & turn it into a of soup. The broth is from the best chicken stock found only in Miyazaki Japan. It is boiled & simmered for over 8 hours with Jidori Chicken (a valuable ‘brand chicken’ in Japan, raised organically with stringent quality standards) bones. I personally find it super sweet & flavorful.
The waitress will be around to help you with adding of ingredients so you can continue to enjoy your other food items (is any). The ingredients were very fresh
The ramen is also very springy.
After the meal, complementary pudding is being served with cute drawings & thank you greetings.
