Yomenya Goemon has revolutionised spaghetti-eating in Japan, where the Italian pasta is cooked the Japanese way. The store has become extremely popular since its inception in 1976, with 2500 stores and counting. And it has finally made its way to Singapore at the new commercial district Marina Bay Financial Centre.
The eatery sells only spaghettis, with an interesting and diverse variety of 32 flavours. As a lover of cream-sauced pastas, I ordered a carbonara with yolk and bacon. And it was divine! While the sauce was creamy and cheesy, you would not really get sick eating it because it was suitably flavoursome. The lunch sets are indeed value-for-money, with a ‘half and half’ set of two spaghettis costing only $18++.
