Food review: Daikokuya

Have you guys heard of MyVillage? If you have not visited Serangoon Gardens in a while, you'll be surprised at the sight of a mall there.

MyVillage is a newly built mall located right smack in the centre of Serangoon Gardens. Ching Chong Boy and I were there recently courtesy of an invite from the lovely Christina. We visited a few eateries there and decided to pay a visit back there really soon.

Weeks later, we had a huge ramen craving and I suggested Daikokuya, which was located at MyVillage.

Daikokuya offers mid-range priced ramen and are rather affordable. The boy and I indulged in a few dishes and our total bill came up to less than 60 bucks!

Here's what we ordered!

The Okonomiyaki Gyoza (10 pieces at $9.20) was yummy. However, I do think that the only difference between this and the normal gyoza that they offer is the fish flakes. I would however order the normal gyoza the next time I visit Daikokuya.

I think what really made the Gyoza very delish was the specially flavoured vinegar that they had specially prepared.

Don't be fooled by the little chilli in the bottle. It isn't spicy at all, the chilli however added a tangy taste to the vinegar. meLikes. 🙂

I wasn't a fan of the Original Cha Shu ($5.80) but then I never really did fancy cha shu. Ching Chong Boy attacked this with great gusto and he seemed to rather like this starter. I personally felt that it was a bit too dry for my liking.

Some of the additional toppings we ordered for our ramen. The yummy egg  ($2), sweet corn (skip it!) ($1.00) and cha shu ($3.00).

Ching Chong Boy ordered the Shoyu Cha Shu Ramen ($14.80).  As you can see, he was a great fan of Cha Shu. He really liked this ramen as he felt that it wasn't too salty and the thick curly noodles went really well with the broth. He added the egg, which he mentioned was one of the best that he had ever tasted.

I had chosen the Seafood Shio Ramen  ($13.80) with a choice of the thin and straight noodles.

After adding some Cha Shu and corn.

I usually prefer Shio (salt flavoured) ramen as I feel that it's less salty as compared to the Shoyu ramen (Soy flavoured).

The seafood went surprisingly well with the ramen. The prawns were really fresh and QQ and I happily slurped every single drop of the broth.

Old school Coke Bottle ($3.00). I believe I need not review this :p

Overall, I give it a thumbs up for the food. However the place is rather small and it was quite tough for us to get a seat. Do make reservations before heading down.

Happy us! 🙂
