Yomenya Goemon Japanese Spaghetti House

Yomenya Goemon Japanese Spaghetti House is a Japanese food outlet that sells only spaghetti cooked the Japanese way! In addition, you get to eat your spaghetti with chopsticks! It is located at the new Marina Bay Link Mall. The nearest MRT station is Raffles MRT station near exit I.

Half & Half Set Menu

Set Lunch Menu

Both of us ordered the Set Lunch Menu. She ordered Set C whie I ordered Set A. Her choice of spaghetti was ‘Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses’ while mine was ‘Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup (Spaghetti with Fresh Seafood)’. Both would have cost $13.50 each if ordered as a la carte.

Salad Bar

For each set, only one serving from the salad bar is allowed. Look at the variety.

I am such a typical Singaporean, my bowl was filled to the brim after my trip to the salad bar.

Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup (Spaghetti with Fresh Seafood)

We were told the Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup was their top best seller. True, to the recommendation of the staff, it was delicious! This is a cream based pasta. It was not very creamy, hence eating was enjoyable even till the end.The seafood was very fresh. No wonder it is their best seller. Certainty something to try.

Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses

Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses another cream based pasta. It was too creamy, otherwise would certainty be another dish that would be a hit among foodies.


Soup that comes with the set.

Dessert Menu

Chocolate Cake with Cookie & Ice Cream would have cost $6.00 if it did not come along with the set. The cookie and ice cream were just average. But the chocolate cake was the star. Do give it a try!

Overall, i would definitely come back and try the other spaghetti again. Yummy! Moreover, the portion per serving was huge. If you are a small eater, you could order the half & half set and share with a friend. They are opening a 2nd outlet at Katong Mall somewhere in August this year. Wish that their 3rd can be situated at a more convenient location, such as Woodlands or Yishun.

Tampopo (Takashimaya) 2nd Post

It was about 7pm on a Sunday night. Surprisingly, there was no queue. Maybe everyone went back early to rest as there was work the next day.

Kyushu Ramen $13.50

As usual, the egg yolk was still runny when u break it into half. Can’t really remember much about it as we ate this quite long ago. But i remember that i contains 2 pieces of pork and each piece was lined with fats.

Tonkatsu Ramen $15.90

Felt that the Tonkatsu Ramen which i ate in the previous post was better than this time. Maybe the reason was because, I only ate a few mouthfuls. This time, its the whole bowl to myself. Felt that it was quite spicy halfway through.

Felt that the layer of flour this time was much thicker than in the first post. Another reason why I felt that the earlier post’s Tonkatsu Ramen was nicer. But still a decent Tonkatsu!

Scoop Cake $6.00

Tried Scoop Cake this time round. Prefer the Matcha Chiffon Cake. Main reason is that the scoop cake had too much cream. Beside having a thick layer of cream on top, there was another layer in the middle. The cream was surprisingly nice. Normally, we would not eat the cream, but this time we did!(still I do not think eating cream is healthy and is fattening) And also, am not a fan of strawberry. I think both she and I had our ate our entire lifetime of strawberries in Cameron Highlands earlier this year. Ok, should be she, as she ate most of the strawberries as I refuse to eat them and only ate one or two while she ate almost the whole basket.. Take the cream and strawberry out of the equation, the cake is fantastic. Its very soft and with pieces of orange in between.

As for refill of water, its always the same guy who goes around refilling water for all the patrons inside. The rest of the staff does not refill water for customers, unless its requested for. I just wanna say kudos to this guy as it is this type of little things that seems trivial that makes the difference.

Tampopo (Takashimaya)

There was a queue outside Tampopo which we expected as it was a Saturday afternoon. Waited about 15minutes. Thought will have to wait longer, lucky us.

Tonkatsu Ramen $15.90

I am not sure what makes a ramen good. Personally, the soup and ramen were not bad. The star was the Tonkatsu! Crispy n the outside, it is not oily. And the it was not too thick. Nice!

Tasty egg $1.80

Look at the egg yolk, still runny. Wish they at least heat up the egg as the egg was cold and abit expensive at $1.80.

Black Pig Deluxe Shabu Ramen $15.30

took some black pig up to the top

The black pig was shiok, thin slices with melt in the mouth sensation. Ramen and soup was not too bad either.

Matcha Chiffon Cake $5.80

I came here for the black pig, but I think the highlight is this Matcha Chiffon Cake! Its very nice, try it. The azuki bean in it was heavenly, if only more was added.

Service was good. Water was refilled promptly without any need to request for a refill. Moreover, you do not need to wait too long for the food to arrive, although it was full house.
