Japan Food Town, Wisma Atria (Isetan Orchard) Singapore

Japan Food Town, Wisma Atria Isetan Singapore - 3

(Updated Sep 2016) The long-awaited opening of the Japan Food Town in Wisma Atria, Singapore finally happened on Saturday 16 July 2016. The Isetan Orchard store has been undergoing major renovations and this must be the most significant new project. Japan Food Town is located on the Isetan part of the building. The other part of the 4th level is taken up the Food Republic Food court. The whole 4th level of Wisma Atria is now a giant food and restaurant space. We took a walk about to find out what the new Japan Food Town has to offer.

The first impression of the space was that this concept reminded us of restaurant floors in office and shopping buildings in Tokyo that are fully dedicated to f & b outlets. Walk around the Japan Food Town and the 16 restaurants are well-integrated. Full details about this new Japanese food hall in Singapore and the individual restaurants  can be found on their website (link below). Basically the 16 restaurants had been handpicked from Japan to be represented here, each being renown for their respective area of expertise.

On opening day, not all restaurants were open. A few of the premises were still dark, a few were operational but did not open for business, possibly testing their systems. Fortunately, most of the restaurants did open on opening day. Here are some pictures of the restaurants which we came across and, where available, some sample pages from the respective menus.

  1. Tried 5 outlets: Sabar, Machida Shoten, Sushi Takewaka, Tempura Tenka & Yomoda Soba. My favorites are the grilled Toro-Saba, the fish is juicy and tender and the Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen. Quite disappointing with Sushi Takewaka (30+ yrs in Tsukiji market), ordered the Edomae Jo Nigiri, the fish slices are tasteless, only 2pcs (kinmedai & amaebi) taste ok, in the end left 3pcs sushi uneaten. I prefer the tendon from Tempura Kohako@EatAtSeven.

      1. Not 5 in a day, I think 3 days as those 5 outlets started to operate before the official opening on 16 July. Yesterday just tried the Shabu Shabu Tajimaya for lunch, had the “All-You-Can-Eat 60 mins Tajimaya Course”, good quality wagyu for the price we’re paying. Now they having 20% discount so quite worth it, recommended to all wagyu lovers!
