Tokyo Shokudo, a Japanese restaurant specialising in popular and trendy Japanese food like Ramen, Tsukemen, Tendon (tempura donburi), is now halal-certified.
The restaurant is located on the fourth floor of Tampines Mall.
Helmed by award-winning chef
According to a press release, the dishes offered at the restaurant, particularly the ramen and tendon, are created by award-winning Chef Akimitsu Tanihara, a five-time gold medalist at Japan Donburi Awards.
Since the age of 18, Mr. Akimitsu Tanihara started honing his skills at “Dote no Ise-ya”, a 131-year-old Tendon shop which has its roots since the era of Samurai.
After years of training, he successfully attained the status of Head Chef and is officially recognized as the 5th generation successor of “Dote no Ise-ya”. As Head Chef, he dutifully maintained the traditional taste of “Ise-ya”.
After that, he branched out and finally started his own restaurant in Asakusa, Tokyo which is the birthplace of Tendon.
With years of experience as the 5th generation successor, Chef Akimitsu developed his specialty, the Godaime Tendon — loosely translated as 5th Generation Tendon — which won the gold medal at the Japan Donburi Awards for 6 years in a row.
With a long culinary history, he is proud and excited to introduce halal iteration of his Tendon here – a first in Singapore to the local Muslim community.
Dishes at Tokyo Shokudo
In addition to Tendon, Tokyo Shokudo also offers Tsukemen (Dipping Noodles), Tempura Rice Sets and Japanese Rice Sets, all of which are crowd-pleasers and family-friendly dining options.
Ramen lovers can look forward to four exciting Ramen soup bases – Original, Yuzu, Tom Yam and Spicy. Various options of proteins accompany the ramen such as chicken chashu, beef shabu, seafood, scallop, asari, ebi and duck.
Tsukemen (Dipping noodles)
One of the most beloved styles of ramen in Japan, Tsukemen involves serving cold noodles alongside a bowl of hot soup. Diners would dip the noodles into the soup and enjoy the toppings served atop or on the side of the noodles.
This is where Tokyo Shokudo shines the most, especially through its Signature Tendon which features prawn, fish, egg, nori, assorted vegetables and rice.
If you are searching for alternatives to noodles, the restaurant also serves rice sets such as Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Teriyaki, Salmon Shio, and Saba Shio.
Toji is a Japanese dish not commonly found in Singapore. It consists of scrambled eggs and at Tokyo Shokudo, it is then accompanied with either fried chicken, beef suki or ebi.
