Begin to fill your stomach with their Forest Mushroom Soup, topped with garlic croutons. Move onto mains with their Signature Mixed Grill that is sure to satisfy every meat lover out there - Grilled
Chicken Chop, Pork Chop and Summer Kabana Pork Sausage. Their sides include Seasonal Vegetables, Potato Au Gratin, pesto cream and black pepper sauces. When I ordered it, everything was great but I was not a fan of the Potato Au Gratin, which was too bland and dense for my liking.

Three scoops of gelato wrapped in a crispy waffle cone is the perfect antidote to combat Singapore’s sweltering heat. What’s not to love? Gelatissimo makes their gelato fresh daily, using the finest quality ingredients, with no artificial colours or flavours.
Take your pick from their array of flavours, which includes vegan, dairy and gluten free options. My personal recommendation would be Salted Macadamia dulce de leche, Wicked Double Chocolate Brownie and Taro. The crunchiness of the macadamia and sweetness of the chocolate go well together and the taro just adds on extra ‘oomph’ of flavour.

Source: Menbaka Kyoto Fire Ramen
Located at Cathay Cineleisure, Menbaka Kyoto Fire Ramen is the world's first fire ramen. The chefs ignite the oil to create powerful, dramatic flames, and pour it over their signature broth covered with green onions. The owner wanted customers to taste the aroma of green onion, as Kyoto people love green onions, so he came up with the idea of flaming the onions.
You can literally feel the heat from the fire and enjoy a theatrical dining experience like never before. The hint of charred taste gives the broth an ‘umami’ flavour and the chasu melts in your mouth. The Tonkotsu Ramen is their Singapore exclusive, so be sure to try it out!
