Kohaku Tendon is a fairly new establishment at Suntec City, part of the group of Japanese restaurants at EAT AT SEVEN. Kohaku specialises in Edomae Tendon, where bowls of piping hot Hokkaido rice is piled with tempura, which is then drizzled in a specially made sauce.
Ordering is fairly straightforward.
Basically you decide if you want:
1. Original Meat or Veg
2. Spicy Meat or Veg
They have the signature Kohaku Tendon ($15), Vegetable Tendon ($14), Spicy Flavour ($15) and Vegetable Spicy Flavour ($14).
If you are extremely hungry, a set meal comes with an additional bowl of udon, which costs $4.50 more. But a small eater will not require this option, because the rice bowl is already too much to inhale.
KOHAKU TENDON (15.00)
The portion was extremely generous, so it's definitely value for money! The original Kohaku tendon bowl was topped with ingredients from pumpkin, long beans, mushroom, chicken breast, squid, crab stick, baby corn, and shrimp. The rice is fragrant and fluffy, a tag on the counter indicated that the rice used is imported from Hokkaido.
VEGETABLE TENDON (14.00)
The Vegetable Tendon is essentially the same but without meat and has more vegetables. There is free flow pickled radish and cabbage on every table for you to eat in between mouthfuls of tendon, to get rid of the cloying feeling.
All in all, a very satisfying meal indeed.
In a Nutshell
Price Point: $$
Thumbs Up: The food is good and not as oily. Slightly better ventilation but still needs work.
To Improve: The massive queue is so off-putting but no fault of theirs hahaha. Free-flow pickled radish and cabbage maybe? To cleanse the jelat-ness of oily food.
Will I return: Yes
Why: BECAUSE THIS IS DAMN GOOD TENDON.
