I had the Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen along with the pork gyoza and two kushiyaki i.e. pork and chicken wing. The tonkotsu soup was on the lighter side but nonethless flavourful but the noodles could do with a bit more thickness so as to absorb the soup better. Otherwise, the noodles on its own tend to be a bit tasteless. As for the gyoza, the quality was a bit uneven because those which were not burnt on the outside managed to keep the filling juicy while those which were burnt made the filling dry up. Some of the kushiyaki options were not available when I was there so I settled for the pork and chicken wing versions. The pork kushiyaki was well-seasoned and nicely grilled but the chicken wing version felt a bit bland on the inside.

For a detailed review with more photos, please visit here: http://shokushisouseikatsu.blogspot.sg/2013/01/chiso-zanmai-central.html

Chiso Zanmai offers a Japanese buffet where the spread is changed monthly and usually focuses on a specific place or region of Japan. If I remember correctly, the theme was Okinawa when I visited the restaurant. On the whole, this is a good place to taste local delicacies of various regions in Japan at a pretty low price. On the other hand, it was a series of hits and misses for me as I found that some items were lacking while some did impress me. It pretty much depends on your personal preferences and expectations as to whether you would enjoy your meal here.

Original financier and chocolate madeleine

Original financier and chocolate madeleine

 
In the sleepy Icon Village building lies a quaint bakery/confectionery named Patisserie Glace. As the shop space is very small, there is actually no space for you to sit around to enjoy their products. However, I don't think this bothers its customers too much since its baked goods are usually in small packages and can be easily picked up and brought back to the office as a post-lunch/teatime treat.
It was by chance that I walked past this bakery and I was tempted by the very delicious-looking baked goods. During a recent visit in June, I picked up the original flavour financier and chocolate madeleine which were simply among the best I've tasted. On most occasions, the financiers I tasted had strong buttery tastes or the texture didn't impress me. Glace's version had the right taste and texture (at least to me). The madeleine also did well because its chocolate taste wasn't too overwhelming and it had the right amount of moisture. I usually have to drink tea while eating madeleines because they tend to be rather dry but I can eat Glace's version on its own.
I haven't had the opportunity to try their sliced or whole cakes though but it sure looks appealing through the glass showcases.
