Keisuke Gyoza King

Good day everyone. Today I’m going eat some rice and gyoza. Too much noodles these days so got to balance it back. Although Gyoza (or Jiaozi) are invented in China, they are really popular comfort food in Japan and you can see them almost everywhere whether it’s chinese restaurant or ramen joints or izakayas.

So how can Keisuke, a famous ramen joint not sell any gyoza? In fact they open a store specially selling gyoza sets which is the Keisuke Gyoza King.

They sell 3 types of Gyoza, which are filled with their ramen broth —

Tonkotsu King Gyoza (Pork with Tonkotsu broth)
Tori King Gyoza (Chicken with Tori King Ramen broth)
Keisuke Gyoza (Prawn & chicken with Crab ramen broth)

I ordered their Gyoza Kaiseki ($13.90), a set meal that comes with 2 side dishes (of the eight choices), soup & premium Koshihikari rice (one of the most expensive in Japan). And the marinated bean sprout & pickles are served free. Of course, I picked the Keisuke Gyoza as above. The gyozas were juicy and you can clearly taste the prawn and the chicken. Better than the ones I eat at Osaka Ohsho in Singapore (Japan ones is another story then)

The 8 types of side dish as below:

  • Chicken Nanban with Tartar sauce
  • Deep fried chicken with spicy sauce & mixed sesame
  • Stir fried egg with Chinese chives
  • Stir fried eggplant (brinjal) with MISO
  • Deep fried prawn with mayonnaise sauce
  • Deep fried white fish in tempura sauce
  • Pork SUKIYAKI with a raw egg
  • Spinach with soya sauce & bonito flakes

The side dishes were ok, not fantastic but not bad either. I like that you can choose how much rice you want. You can have a small bowl or extra large bowl of rice at no extra cost. And they have free-flow of raw eggs which you can make TKG (Tamago-kake Gohan) TKG is cracking a raw egg on top of the hot rice and mixing it, one of the many ways Japanese likes to eat their rice (Ask Google sensei if you need a picture of that)

It’s quite a value for money and if you have friends to join you, you can order different sets and side dishes to mix around. It’ll be an enjoyable meal.

I need to go do some window shopping to burn off the calories. See ya!

Movie day and 4 Fingers.

Hihi 🤗, It’s another Monday and the dreaded Monday blues. What’s a good way to cheer up and start your engine? A movie of course.

Watched Despicable M3 because my friend wanted to watch only this and Transformers but Transformers only start screen on Thursday. Quite an average movie I would say and would only recommend if you like Minions alot or have kids as it makes a good family movie.

Although movie is quite average, the minions toys from McDonald’s are fun

We went for some coffee after the movie

Cappuccino with love

After rotting the rest of the afternoon away, we went for dinner. As most places is quite crowded we went for 4fingers in Jurong point. It’s my first time trying it although I have been wanting to try it long ago but every time it has long queues in the location I’ve been.

I left the ordering to my friend cause I actually didn’t want to eat there in the first place.

She ordered the 3 drumlet set and offered to share with me. The fries taste good, not too oily and salty. It’s alot better than the ones in those fast food outlets that I’ve been (Apparently I didn’t taste any garlic flavour although my friend tell me it’s garlic flavoured. Not sure if I hear wrongly.) The drumlet is nicely marinated and the sauce is sweet yet balanced. Only complain there is that the drumlet seems over-fried and taste hard rather than crispy. Maybe that’s why this outlet seems like crowded compared to other location.

Overall still passable although I may want to try another time at another outlet to see whether the drumlet is always this hard.

Need to rest now. Be back soon. 🙂
