Gastroliterary 36: Japanese x: Tamako


Tamako, a Japanese restaurant tuck away in the quiet Upper Thomsons Road, is a no frills, simple and for the budget-conscious place for Japanese cuisine. Owned by a Japanese lady, this restaurant did not increase their prices for several years in the midst of the supposedly great economic boom of Singapore, only until recently, they increase marginally.

Their prices are really very economical. For instance a Japanese set meal cost only over $6. With appetizers, dessert and drinks included, it is unlikely one can exceed a budget of $20 per person. However, judging by the prices cannot determine one restaurant's true quality. Food, in most cases plays an essential role. Probably not very good, but still it should be better than most places in those overcrowded food courts. One recommended dish is their Sapporo ramen priced at a humble $7. (Food: 6.5 Service: 5)

The additional plus point of this place is that, one does not need to squeeze your way through the crowds and be swift in reserving a seat at the food courts. Although this place is termed ''simple'', it does have the most essential equipment for tropical Singapore, air-conditioned. One thing to take note is that this place experience the cruel blaze of the sunset, so one should visit this place after 7pm for a less blinding dinner. (Ambience: 4 Overall: 7)

dev!, I know you take 980 at night back, you have to disable your sense of smell, then maybe you can entertain yourself by looking for this place.
