Tonkichi, Ngee Ann CIty

One of the things that I liked about Tonkichi (391 Orchard Road, #04-24 Ngee Ann City, tel : +65 6735 7522) from the first time I ate quite a number of years back was the free flow of shredded cabbage and rice. It seems that the cabbage dressing now comes with seaweed which adds another depth of fragrance, albeit seaweed-y, to the already delicious sauce.

There seems to be some promotional kurobuta items on the menu and I had thought that the minced cutlets with cheese looked appealing. On introspect, it wasn't too bad with a fairly generous amount of gooey mozzarella in the meat; it was also something that I probably wouldn't be ordering again.

The braised pork option on the side was actually not too bad as well. What you get is a greasy medley of umami, sweetness and savory packed into a chunk of soft fatty meat. While there are probably better ones of these braised pork bellies around, I've to say that the ones here are pretty tasty.
