NEW on @koganeyamasg ’s menu are offerings of Hokkaido Miso Ramen and Japanese Garlic Fried Rice (Chahan ) – both at affordable pricing. The Japanese Fried Rice starts from $10.90. Chahan is typically served as a ‘side dish’ as part of an extensive menu at many Japanese restaurants here, so great to find this item taking centre stage. Kogane Yama’s Hokkaido-style ramen features springy noodles with fried cabbage in miso soup enriched with pork bones. Typically you would find loads of bean sprouts in Sapporo / Hokkaido ramens, but their take includes fried cabbage instead. The vegetables (and then broth ) fried under high heat, imparts that touch of smokiness, ’wok-hei’, and natural-sweetness. bit.ly/koganeyamanew #DFDSP

Chilli Crab Soft-Shell Crab Tendon from @koganeyamasg The Singapore National Day special of tempura soft-shell crab and assorted vegetables with homemade chilli crab sauce on rice. The batter comprises of Japanese tempura flour and fish seasoning, then deep-fried in soybean and sesame oil. I noted that the batter was crisper and lighter than before, and learnt that the recipe has been further fine-tuned recently. The eggy chilli crab sauce is then poured over for a luscious finish. As a little suggestion, I thought that a spicier tentsuyu sauce would have made this more shiok. bit.ly/koganeyamanew #DFDSP
