Gyoza-Ya in Robinsons Orchard #B1-02A

Robinsons Orchard (The Heeren), has a Gyoza place in its basement. Called Gyoza-Ya, its décor is typical of a Japanese diner but it was really the Gyoza plus other interesting  dishes that qualifies it for many more visits. And they had great service too… another big plus.

Both the Yaki Gyoza Park (S$4.80) and Yaki Ebi Gyoza (S$5.80) were delectable. Pan fried to perfection so that the skin on one side is darkened and crispy while the skin on the bottom/sides, is soft and moist.  And tastily juicy inside.

Though we all try to have “less carbo” but what is a meal without carbo. The good thing is the menu serves a relatively small bowl of Jya Jya Men (S$6.50), one of their signature dishes. Thick noodles with minced pork and their special Meso, served dry. But wait… nothing stays dry… after you have savoured half or 3/4 of the noodles, they will then give you a half-boiled egg, more Miso sauce and SOUP, for your noodles. So you get a 2-in-1 experience. Start Dry, end Wet. Haha. Loved it.

Now comes my favourite. The Torinankotsu Tatsutaag (S$3.80). I am not sure if this is the right name cause I can’t find it on the menu but it is on my receipt. Anyway, this is fried chicken but chicken cartilage… with some meat of course. If you love chewing off the cartilage from the ends of your chicken wings, then this is like a mega mega MEGA treat for you. I would go back just for this!
