Minor Food is an international restaurant business that started with one restaurant in Thailand in 1980. Minor Food Singapore now operates many casual dining restaurant chains, including Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice, Poulet, Riverside Grilled Fish, Sannook Kitchen and Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe. GyoGyo is a new concept introduced by Minor Food. It opened in the second half of 2022.

Located in Basement 1 of Funan Mall, Gyo Gyo occupies a brightly lit atrium space that is not walled up. The casual dining restaurant uses light wood and earth tone palette to create an inviting space with modern Japanese aesthetics.

There are digital menu boards, with nice photographs of the dishes, mounted outside the restaurant. Inside the restaurant, there are regular menu books available. Diners can also scan a QR code on the table to access the digital menu.

Below are pictures of the menu board and sample pages of the regular book menu.

Although the star attractions are the grilled fish sets, GyoGyo’s menu is extensive enough to cater to diners who want something other than fish. Tempura, donburi and pasta with hamburger steak or chicken chop are also on the menu.

Lunch at GyoGyo Funan

We visited GyoGyo at Funan Mall recently. Grilled Seabass Spaghetti ($14.80) and Beef Bowl ($14.80) were selected for our lunch. We also ordered the Azuki Shiratama ($5.80) for dessert.

The waiting time for the food was the fairly typical 15 to 20 minutes. GyoGyo’s thoughtful food plating and presentation made the dishes visually appealing.

The Grilled Seabass Spaghetti was served with a fried egg, vegetables and mushroom cream sauce. The fish was meaty with tender white flesh and a mild flavour. The cream sauce blended nicely with the various items. The combination of flavours and textures worked well for the dish.

The Beef Bowl was served with miso soup. The beef, eggs and vegetables served over a bed of rice in a bowl was about what we would expect in a Japanese casual dining restaurant. It was not particularly memorable but was tasty and satisfying.

The traditional Japanese dessert featuring azuki beans and shiratama dumplings, or red beans with glutinous rice flour balls, was delightful. It had a nice fragrance and was not too sweet. The shiratama had a pleasant chewy soft texture. It was an enjoyable simple dessert and a nice way to end the meal.

Reasonably Priced Meal

We had a nice meal at GyoGyo in Funan Mall. The dining space was pleasant and the prices were reasonable. If you are familiar with the Minor Food Group’s Poulet, Sannook Kitchen and Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe and want Japanese dishes at a similar price point, then GyoGyo is the place to go to.
