Jimoto Ya Singapore is one of the city’s most sought-after Japanese restaurants, and with very good reason. Specialising in steaming bowls of ramen, Jimoto Ya is the brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Nobumasa Mieda and you can feel this level of expertise from the moment you enter the door. Tucked between Great Eastern Centre and China Square, you’ll find a chic space that boasts both indoor and outdoor seating, so you can choose to relax with your dish of choice while taking in that balmy Singapore weather if you wish. The Jimoto Ya menu is relatively small here with the team opting to perfect a small number of dishes – with exceptional results. Perfect for catching up with friends or treating your special someone on date night, Jimoto Ya is a Japanese restaurant in Singapore that is well worth a visit. Located on Pickering Street at Nanking Row in Chinatown, reservations are highly recommended.
Service was not the best. Lots of items that we selected in the menu were not available. When we chose the Kagoshima steak, the waitress told us that there was only Miyazaki steak available without informing us that it was 50% more expensive and of a smaller cut until we asked. Overall food quality was a 5/10, won’t recommend it esp not for the price.
The curry was nice albeit better if the ebi taste was not that strong. They have good house sake unlike other japanese restaurants which serve house sake that taste low-end.
Is there actually anything better that relaxing with some of your best friends, sipping on a fresh beer and indulging in a steaming bowl of soup filled with fresh noodles? Nah, we didn’t think so. Luckily this is high on the agenda at Jimoto Ja Singapore – you just have to provide the friends. This Chinatown Japanese restaurant offers ramen so delicious, you’ll be returning here again and again if you’re anything like us. Besides, when the creator is a Michelin-starred chef, you know it’s going to be a meal to remember. While there’s plenty of ramen restaurants in Singapore, none are quite as delicious as Jimoto Ja.
Now, we mentioned that the Jimoto Ya ramen menu is short and sweet to truly showcase the ingredients and flavours on offer. You’ll find five Jimoto Ya signature ramen offerings that are made with either a savoury prawn broth or a traditional pork bone tonkotsu ramen. You’ll also find an ebi curry and ebi fried rice if ramen isn’t quite what you’re after, alongside a selection of sides that are well worth a try. We just can’t get enough of Jimoto Ya Japanese Singapore and can’t recommend a reservation more. You’ll find it on Pickering Street in Chinatown, where you certainly won’t be disappointed.
