Yamato Izakaya – Man Man Unagi, Ramen Hitoyoshi And Tora Tora Under One Roof, At Ubi Oxley Bizhub
[NEW] What? Man Man Unagi without a queue. As of now.
Man Man Unagi by Teppei has quietly opened at Ubi Oxley Bizhub under the Yamato Izakaya concept – which also houses Ramen Hitoyoshi and Tora Tora.
Ubi may seem too far for many, but great for those working in the MacPherson and Tai Seng areas, and diners who need unagi after your driving lessons.
The other good news is Yamato Izakaya can accommodate over 300 patrons, with free onsite parking.
It is known for generous portions of high quality grilled Japanese eel selected by professional breeders and directly imported from Mikawa Isshiki Town in Aichi Prefecture.
For first timers, get the Hitsumabushi with freshly char-grilled unagi – of reasonable thickness, slight crispy layer, and without that fishy taste that most people do not fancy. Perfect with the accompanying tantalising sauces.
The creamy tonkotsu broth was supposedly cooked for 8 hours, and taste reminded me of Keisuke Tonkotsu King
when it first started out. (Heard from the grapevine that the chefs here used to work for Keisuke.)
Except the Ramen Hitoyoshi had an even thicker quality, and used different type of noodles. The Cha Shu I had was superbly tender without that meaty-porky taste.
Tora Tora offers a different menu of ‘futago’ which means pairs or twins in Japanese.
You have to choose 2 don’s from wide array of dons to complete your order, probably the first place in Singapore where you can taste two different dons in one time.
