Daikokuya Japanese Ramen Dining

Daikokuya is located at the basement of Paragon Shopping Centre serving Japanese Cuisine.

Daikokuya
While most of the restaurants are hogged with waiting queues outside their doors, we choose to dine in Daikokuya as they are the most convenience to us - no queues at all.

Signage
It's a children friendly environment and dining area is rather open concept. Those that are walking along the corridoors may just pop their eyes into the restaurants. Environment

Dining Environment
Theme color of the restaurant resides in dark brown color with a cemented floor space. Interior Design gives diner a modern Japanese feel, making the place cozy under the bright warm lights.

Dining Environment
The menu cover was special and texture was different.

Menu
Every dining table comes readily with a set of condiments like, chilli powder, shoyu, Vinegar, Chilli Oil and pepper.

Dashi Tamago was served in 6 cubes, yellow in color with radish tucked by the side of the plate. It was a tad on the sweet side and since the cubes were made up by layers of eggs, it was very fragile and tends to collapse easily when we had them.

Dashi Tamago - $5.80

Out of the 3 flavours of chawanmushi available, the only available was the one with unagi. Initially, we wanted to ordered chicken (tori). Chawanmushi was not as wobbly and was filled with a few piece of unagi at the bottom of the porcelain.

Tori Chawanmushi - $5.80
Kyushu Tonkotsu Style Ramen consists of rich flavourful cloudy broth whereby pork bones were being boiled for over 12 hours. Noodles was thin and straight, like the size of our local "mee kia". Ramen was accompanied with toppings like bamoboo shoots, chopped scallions, kikurage (wood ear mushroom), naruto (fishcake), sliced cha shu (pork belly).

Tonkotsu Cha Shu Ramen - $15.90

I had the Tokyo Style ramen in soy sauce flavoured soup and sliced roast pork. The noodles was springy and curly, accompanied with chopped scallions, bamboo shoots, naruto (fishcake), sliced pork and baby spinach.

Based on the Cha Shu from the two bowls of Ramen ordered, the meat has nothing outstanding and rather ordinary but still the tender soft and chewable bites

Cha Shu Shoyu Ramen - $15.80
The service was pleasant and left a good impression to me. Our cups of plain water were topped up from time to time and the service staff will pop by once a while to get feedback.
