Tsukada Nojo – Collagen hotpot (美人锅)

I finally went to this Japanese restaurant for dinner after talking about it for so many weeks.

Tsukada Nojo –  Japanese Bijin Nabe Restaurant could be found at Level 3 of Plaza Singapura extension. The new wing features other additional shops and restaurants.

I heard from my colleagues that the restaurant opens for dinner at 5pm, however, when we reached around 430pm, a long queue had already been formed outside the restaurant. We initially wanted to try this restaurant during lunch time, however their collagen hotpot is only served during dinner. The hotpot itself is $25 per person, however, we ordered other dishes and dessert. Therefore, we spent about $37 per pax for this dinner.


My main purpose of trying this hotpot is because of its soup broth (collagen-rich pudding made from chicken bones). It takes about 2 minutes to melt the pudding down into bubbling golden-yellow broth in a clay pot.

After the pudding had completely melted into broth, the waitress helped us to roll the chicken meat into small meat balls from the bamboo.

Noodles included too

My friend felt that the soup is a little too salty, however I think that it is very rich and tasty.


Dump all the vegetables into the soup and this is what you get!


Nikumaki onigiri – Riceballs wrapped with bacon. We ordered 1 original flavored and 1 cheese flavored. It’s a MUST TRY! Price range from $3-$3.50 per piece

We ended the dinner with desserts! Egg pudding (creme brulee) coated  with a perfect layer of crispy sweet caramel.

Tomo Izakaya Singapore ~ Japanese Restaurant

After a singing session at Liang Court Clark Quay, my friends and I decided to have our dinner at Tomo Izakaya, a fine looking Japanese restaurant. They serve quite a lot of variety of sushi, wagyu beef, salads and other kinds of authentic Japanese dishes. If you feel like spoiling yourself over dinner, you can always come to this restaurant, because our meal comes up to around $200 for 4 of us. The restaurant interior is warm and inviting, allowing us to unwind over the weekend over a glass of alcohol. They serve different kinds of shoju, cocktails, wine & spirits.

Here is what we had over dinner~

Very tender pork ribs~ boneless and melts in your mouth!

Looks normal for stir fried mix vegetables, but very tasty~ I wonder what kind of secret sauce they use for frying the vegetables.

The waiter recommended 2 types of Umeshu to compliment our dinner, tasted like plum shoju with a little soda.  We had a very satisfying dinner, superb customer service from the waiter and I would love to visit this restaurant again soon.

Oh by the way, did I mention there is another outlet at the Esplanade? I might just try that outlet next time. 🙂
