We were at Liang Court the other day to get some sushi-making stuff (post up next!) & we decided to get dinner at Tampopo so we can check out what’s the hype about! It was the gf’s belated birthday dinner treat from the sister & friend. Check out our staycation at D’Resorts if you haven’t!
No idea why I kept having the word “tan-gu-gu” in my mind when I thought of Tampopo. Well, maybe because dinner crowd was pretty strong and we queued quite awhile for it? ;-p
I no like the tuna square bites. I can’t chew like a granny.
It’s not too bad. Can’t go wrong with cali rolls and maki.
We all love this cuttlefish! So chewy and the teriyaki sauce is not too overwhelming. No chao-tar taste too.
This dish is interesting! On the menu, we thought it’s a Chinese dish with beansprouts but how Tampopo did the pork liver puzzled us! It was somehow marinated, coated and deep fried before stir-frying with the chives and all.
I chewed so much that I think if I did botox in the jaw muscles, they wouldn’t take effect all.
I was expecting crab claw meat… well, this tasted fine but probably something everyone will ask why when you order at a Japanese restaurant.
Overall, the food was quite decent. I might just be good and order the ramen/curry don to play safe. The sushi and sashimis are good too.
Total bill came up to $170+ (includes another ramen & curry rice set). Pricey, I would say.
