Chikusen Japanese Restaurant

At Tanjong Katong, some shops are perpetually crowded like the established Eng's Noodle House. Pity that Big Bad Wolf which served pretty decent fare closed down. Competition's tough along this road. Seeing that Chikusen was a new contender along this street, we decided to give it a try. 

Beautiful entrance, with a simple and clean design within the restaurant.

We ordered a lunch set which is available on weekends as well. I got a Tempura Set ($14). The appetiser was very savoury and the shredded cabbage was fresh. I know it's just lettuce, but I get irritated every time I see browned sides or if the cabbage is soggy.

The Chawan Mushi had a lot of ingredients in it including juicy mushrooms.

The tempura was lightly battered and not oily at all. The prawns were a little small though. The meal rounded off with a mango pudding which was a little too sweet for my liking.

This place is apparently better known for its higher-end food. But their lunch sets are affordable and definitely value for money. Service was very good as well. I dropped a utensil and one of the waitresses immediately replaced it without me having to ask for a replacement- that's initiative, good observation skills and service deserving of mention!

That place looks really nice, and yes, having your cutlery replaced immediately is a good indication that the staff take interest in customer satisfaction!
