My first time at this ramen place after reading many raves about it. The spicy soup base can be a little overwhelming for people who don’t take spice but the pork cheek was awesome. I love this place because they provide 3 different sizes for their ramen portion and for someone like me who don’t like to have too much noodles can order Size S which fills my stomach. Definitely will be back to try their other soup base.

I’ve seen Teppei Japanese Restaurant on social media for a while and I’ve been wanting to try it. But the dinner is fully reserved till January 2015 and they only take in reservation with no walk-in. So on a particular Saturday, I’ve decided to Q 45 minutes to enjoy the lunch. The place was very small with seating capacity of 18, we were blessed to be one of the few who managed to get in at 12.15 even thou we were there 45 minutes prior to its opening. I’ve seen the legendary Barachirashi from here and it felt so shiok to be able to put it into my mouth and polishing off the whole bowl. The salmon belly portion was generous but it felt a little sick after having too many pieces. I’ll definitely be back for more Barachirashi, the freshness and portion was worth the $17.90. Not forgetting the cosy setting.
