Office workers in the CBD are seriously spoiled for choice when it comes to picking something for lunch. Joining the many options comes Sumo-Ya, a new Japanese eatery specializing in Japanese Curry Rice and Collagen Rich Ramen.
Helming the kitchen is Chef Zhan Qiang, a man with many years of experience handling Japanese dishes and ingredients. While there aren’t a huge variety of dishes, what makes up for it is the quality of food that’s served before you.
To top it all off, there’s no GST or service charge!
Sumo Yakiniku Ramen (Spicy), $18.90
Chef Zhan Qiang fancies a chicken based broth to make his Tori Paitan Ramen. Paitan means it’s a thick, creamy and rich broth (usually chocked full of collagen that makes the skin smooth and firm).
This is an extremely filling dish. You get 280g of tender pork shabu shabu, that nice runny egg on top of a very generous amount of perfectly cooked ramen. BUT, it could have been slightly spicier.
Chashu Ramen, $13.90
This was slightly disappointing. The broth was tasty and rich but the Cha Shu pieces were not as tender as I would have liked it to be and the egg was slightly overcooked. However, the portion for $13.90 was really generous! You’ll definitely feel full with this for sure!
Cha Shu Curry Rice, $10.90
Ever heard of Banana, Apple and Dark Chocolate infused curry? Yeah me neither. Apparently, in order to create the Black Japanese Curry that you find in Japan, you have to use chocolate and fruits! This is what gives it it’s sweetness and color.
I’ve been to Japan before and I cannot deny the similarities of Sumo-Ya’s curry rice to Japans. And for $10.90, you get A LOT of rice! The Cha Shu cubes would have been better fried to give the dish an added texture.
If you’re still hungry, they also have a humble selection of ingredients for Oden. I loved the taste of the broth, there’s something really addictive about it.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Is it the best ramen that I’ve tasted in Singapore? Probably not BUT definitely one of the most value for money. The similarities of Sumo-Ya’s curry rice to that of authentic Japanese Curry Rice is uncanny as well. If you’re working around the area, Sumo-Ya is perfect for you worker ants!
