Izakaya Nijumaru 居酒屋二重丸
You may not know of this place as they are located remotely in Cuppage plaza, level 2. However, the food that are served is absolutely one of the freshest i had.
Bustling with customers although there are no people walking along the walkway
Nijumaru Bento ($21) - Although this is abit expensive, but consider the quality of the food, i certainly recommended all to try. Saba fish (top left of the tray) is not too dry, crispy on the outside and juicy meat combiination. However, there are bones, so be careful while eating. Tempura is nice and crispy, taste first hand on the freshest tempura. Sashimi include salmon, tuna and yellowtail, no complain over these. Stew pork really look special, the lean meat and fats are proportion and tender when chew. Simply delicious.
Shogayaki Set ( Pork ) $14 - Marinated pork stir fried with spring onions, served with stew eel meat (Bottom right) and miso soup. Pork meat is tender and wonderfully delicious. There are a mixture of lean meat and fats, the proportion are just right. Stew eel are delicious too although there are bones and you must be careful while eating.
Ika Fried ($8) - Fresh, sweet and chewy. Although it is fried but you still can taste the squid freshness. Eat with mustard sauce or sweet sauce to experience different taste of the squid.
Chawamushi ($5.50) - Lots of ingredients, mushroom, prawn, spring onions, ginkgo nut and chicken chunk. The steam egg is really delicious and smooth. Really pipping hot even after leaving it for a few minutes. Certainly yummy

Food is fresh, sashimi that i ate do not have any foul taste or smell. Even the tempura that i had also taste sweet and tender. I have a great impression on the food provided.
Staff's service is quite ok although i heard alot of complaints about bad service. However, i was asked to leave as there are a small group of people queuing as i have not finished my cup of tea.
