A season has past and spring is coming soon. Guess I should really have to be more hardworking and work harder on the backlogs. Autumn is a romantic season, the weather is chilling and joyful; with the sun up high in the sky but you […]
Kishimen noodle is a kind of flattened udon, which can be found in Aichi Prefecture, also one of the Nagoya’s specialties that one must try before leaving Nagoya. Kishimen is known as flatten udon, with its shape very much looks like the Italian tagliatelle pasta; made of water, wheat flour and salt, exactly similar like the regular udon, except the shape.

When I was in Nagoya, and doing meal search as around dinner time, I came across this Yoshidamen Kishimen ESCA Restaurant which is located in the underground shopping area of Nagoya Station; managed by the Yoshida Noodle Manufacturers, specialized in kishimen noodles.
I am not an udon person but I find myself loving kishimen a lot; for its flatten shape that tends to adsorb more flavours and also its very smooth flatten texture. Quite similar like the local Pan Mee, but it is smoother, slippery and slurpier than Pan Mee. Best of all, its greater dimension tends to adsorb more flavours from the broth or soup.
We fancied kishimen from Yoshidamen. Price was pretty affordable given the huge portion size like this. One combo set can be easily shared among two unless you really have huge stomach.

#Throwback to my own birthday meal in January. This year, I chose to have richly flavoured Northern Indian cuisine with my girls instead of the usual Japanese cuisine, so I checked out this renowned FLOUR Restaurant in Bukit Damansara before relocating to Jalan Kamuning (and […]
Japanese cuisine is definitely one of the cuisines I miss most at this time. I am glad I got to have a very delicious and satisfying Japanese meal in Kampachi at EQ at time before the MCO started.
Is one of the pioneer Japanese restaurants in the city, serving authentic Japanese cuisine made with freshest top-notch quality ingredients air-flown from Japan.
This new Kampachi is way so elegant. With its floor to ceiling high glass window, bringing the natural sunlight into the premise; filled with wooden furniture that creates a soothing and comfortable zen-ish ambience. And there is a Hinoki Wood sushi counter seated at one area, awaiting you to join on the omakase dining experience.
