Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant – DUO
7 Fraser Street, Duo Galleria, Singapore 189356 (Opening 10th October 2017)
Opening 2nd Branch At DUO Near Bugis, With New Unagi Menu
Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand listed Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant will be opening its 2nd outlet in Singapore at DUO, anticipated to be in 10th October evening.
Instead of one queue, you will get DUO queues. LOL.
Man Man also helmed by Chef Nakagawa who had been working in a Mikawa Unagi shop for more than 20 years, is known for its fresh unagi cut live in front of diners.
The Unagi supply comes solely from the Mikawa Isshiki region, famous for supplying high quality freshwater eel.
According to Chef Teppei Yamashita, the new outlet will retain some of the old favourites, and introduce a new menu.

The brand’s four signature Ramen Kings range from the traditional Butao King ($13.90) which is tonkotsu pork broth prepared the traditional method, the spicy Red King ($15.90), the Black King ($15.90) with fragrant blackened garlic and squid, and Green King ($15.90) with addition of fresh basil and olive oil.

Experience Japan’s 1 Michelin Starred Kushiage From $36.50
Japan’s 1-Michelin starred restaurant Rokukakutei which specialises in Kushiage, has opened an outlet in Singapore at Odeon Towers (next to Bras Basah).
A restaurant specialising in kushikatsu — Japanese deep-fried skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables, is not that common in Singapore.
The good news: Rokukakutei has just introduced a “Kushiage Experience Set”, available everyday from 4:00pm to 8:30pm, applicable for diners who are sitting at the wine bar counter.
At only $36.50, diners can savour 5 different types of deep fried skewers, served together with a veggie bowl of fresh and boiled greens and homemade pickles. Ginza Rokukakutei (Odeon Towers)

Opening Hours: 11.30am – 10pm (Wed – Mon), Closed Tue
Japanese Curry Rice Starting From $4.60, With Customisable Toppings
“Otoko” implies a “strong man” in Japanese, and is not to be confused with Otoko Ramen at Alexandra Central.
Prices for their specialty dish with a single topping start as low as $4.60 for a plate of Curry Rice or $5.60 for a bowl of Curry Udon.
I had the Curry Rice ($4.60) with Chicken Cutlet ($2.80) and Potato Salad in Bacon Wrap (2pcs for $1.80) served in a pool of Japanese curry on a huge plate.
While I enjoyed the round, plump rice and the Japanese curry (slightly spicier than usual), the thin, crispy, golden-brown chicken cutlet was unfortunately to the dry side. Apart from the DIY Curry Rice or Udon, Otoko offers Donburi aka Rice Bowls ($9.80-14.80) and Ebi Tendon ($16.80). Otoko (Hougang Midtown)
5 Changi Business Park Central, #01-20, Changi City Point, Singapore 486038

Comforting Poke Bowl And Sushi Rolls At Changi City Point
In terms of food selection, Ohana Poke is similar to other Poke Bowl shops with their Signature Bowls ($14 – 16), with the option to customise your own Poke Bowl ($12.80).
Apart from Mahola Tuna ($14) with tuna toppings, and Make Poke ($16) with sashimi toppings which are commonly found in other Poke Bowl shops, a customisable option ($12.80) is available.
I had the Uahi Duck ($15) with smoked duck, onsen egg and black pepper sauce, which is something different from other stores in the market.
The combination is quite interesting. Thinly sliced tender duck meat and an addictive black pepper kick on soft and fluffy sushi rice.
O Chicken And Beer

Tel: +65 65326088
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3:00pm, 5:30pm – 2:00am (Mon – Sun)
Korean Fried Chicken aka Chimaek At Boat Quay

The chicken was great – crispy while partly juicy on the inside, adequately covered with addictive-sweet soy sauce but not overly drenched such that it would become soggy.
O Chicken & Beer also serves up a variety of classic Korean dishes such as Haemul Pajeon (Seafood pancake $18.80), Japchae (Stir-fried glass noodles $14.80), Jjamppong (Spicy seafood noodle soup, $16.80), and Dduk Bok Ki (Spicy Korean rice cakes soup, $14.80).
