Ajisai

Ajisai is popular for their Shio Ramen, a Konbu-stock salt flavoured noodle soup with Ajitama, Bamboo Shoots and Roast Pork. Other selections include the Pa-Ko Men (with Pork Cutlet), Se’ Abura Ramen (with Pork Fat) and White/Red Miso Ramen. 

As for the Seafood Ramen $19.50, it came with two large scallops and a giant prawn. The clear broth was made from salt flavoured seafood stock with a strong taste in prawns and vegetables, albeit oilier and on the saltier side. Noodles, on the other hand, were softer.


Natsume

Menu at Natsume is quite straightforward with options for Set/DIY Kaisen Don or Grilled Fish (Smelt Fish, Atka Mackerel and Kinki Rock Fish).

Opt for the Today’s Special Kaisen Don $13.50 that comes with chef’s selection of the day. It was well worth the buck for the amount of ingredients – Sea Urchin, Crab Sticks, Flying Fish Roe, Tuna, Swordfish, Squid, Omelette, Prawns, Cherry Tomatoes, Seaweed, Lotus Root and Greens on a bed of Sushi Rice. 

DIY Kaisen Don starts at $8.50 for a base of salad or sushi rice with 2 choices of fish. I had an add-on of Scallops ($4 for 4 pieces). The sashimi were fresh while the swordfish was lightly seared and marinated in sesame dressing.

Each Kaisen don comes in a set with miso soup.
