A new Japanese eatery opened at Icon Village so I had it on my tasting list. It had a short counter which could the most take about 8 persons. It was full house at lunch time so me and my lunch kakis waited for a while. They were having a promotion of 2 specified lunch sets at $10.80++ each, a choice of the salmon or tonkatsu set if I didn't remember wrongly. The promotion could be still on currently.
I didn't go for the promotion lunch set. The unagi with pork belly simmered for 8 hours got my attention. And boy, it was good. Dipped a little of the mustard, the pork belly simply melted away. How I wished I had more than just two thin slices. It was thankful that the rice was good. The fat and satisfying short grain rice. I would feel quite cheated if the rice served was not a least bit like short-grain rice. The unagi was good too. In fact, I felt it was worth the money. I would definitely be back.

Hidden at the second level of the International Plaza(IP) which sits directly on top of Tanjong Pagar MRT station, Ko Ryo Jeong korean restaurant is not any inferior to the nearby Dae Jang Kuem Korean Restaurant.
One of my makan kakis brought me to this place for lunch some time ago. The fish was nicely grilled. Served hot and crispy on the exterior, it was good. The only flaw being there weren't many choices to choose from. Even for ramen, only egg and vegetables were added, no pork, said the lady boss. Only a few pan-chan was served. It could have been better if more were served. Very unlike the usual korean restaurants where more than 3 pan-chan would be served. Business was good and my lunch kaki shared that the night business is even better.
We had 3 teh-tarik. The teh-tarik was good, not-so-sweet and fragrant. Total bill was about $34 which I think was a tad expensive. Further up the road, there is the famous chocolate cake from Jane's cake station and a new prata outlet just next to the public carpark. I think the new outlet offered a greater variety. Mum said the nasi lemak and ginger tea was nice. I have not got the chance to taste it.
