When in Hiroshima: Bakudan-ya Honten ばくだん屋 @ Naka Ward – Slurp Up Hiroshima Style Tsukemen with a Fiery Dipping Sauce Around the Corner from Okonimimura

While Hiroshima may be famed for her deliciously fat oysters and okonomiyaki, did you know that the city is also home to a unique style of ramen? Known as tsukemen, this dish is essentially a soupless version of the comforting ramen noodles we have come to know and love, paired with a bowl of thick dipping sauce to coat them noodles.

Rizu Sushi and Modern Japanese Cuisine @ Duxton Hill – Exquisitely Crafted Omakase (Invite)

Nestled in the hip (and regrettably unexplored by yours truly) neighbourhood of Duxton Hill is RIZU Sushi and Modern Japanese Cuisine, an understated restaurant that opened its doors in late August 2018.

Housed in a minimalist 30-seater space, Duxton Hill’s latest addition derived its name from the words ri (a deep blue prized gemstone that signifies good luck and harmony) and zu (meaning “joy” and the use of cherished gems).

Guzman y Gomez @ Star Vista – The Go-To Place for All Things Mexican with Unlimited Salsa (Invite)

There’s something about Mexican cuisine that leaves you feeling incredibly full just at the thought of it – big flavours, vibrant colours, and even bigger portions that do not stinge on the goodies.

You may be surprised to know that Guzman y Gomez is not, unlike what its advertising collateral suggests, a Mexican food concept helmed by two genial looking gentlemen by the names of Guzman and Gomez. In fact, the brand originated in Australia, and currently has overseas outlets in Singapore and Japan. Still, Guzman y Gomez has grown to become the go-to place to satisfy our cravings for Mexican food, with its largest outlet located at Star Vista.
