Kazokutei, Tokyo Walker, Plaza Singapura
It looks like the folks behind Manpuku have started another little cluster of Japanese food outlets, this time carrying a rather awkward name: Tokyo Walker (68 Orchard Road #04-01, 6333-9285). We went past the ramen and chanpon shops and ended up at the one in the back, which specialized in handmade udon...and in a variety of styles too. It seemed promising.
The curry smelled and tasted nice at first, but it was still a far cry from Wakashachiya. More importantly, the noodles were too soft and frankly a bit of a yawner, as was some of the fried stuff that we got on the side too. It was only later that I realized that these guys were related to Toku Toku, another shop that I have never really been sold on. I still wish Rakugamo would come down here; in the meantime, I guess I'll keep going back to Huhu instead.
