Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen is one of the new restaurants at Thomson Plaza. It is the second Hajime outlet in Singapore. The person behind Hajime is Chef Tan-San, said to be the First Tonkatsu Chef in Singapore.
New Thomson Plaza restaurants have opened after the major renovations at the mall along Upper Thomson Road. Some familiar eateries have remained and some new places to eat at Thomson Plaza have been added. Here are 10 restaurants we find particularly interesting.
Sake Hall at Katong Square is a restaurant established by Tanesei Trading, a wholesaler in Japanese food and sake products and the sole agent for the Japanese Prestige Sake Association in Singapore. Tanesei is also the local partner of Baikohken Japanese Ramen Restaurant in Singapore. Patrons can thus expect to find nice ramen and a good array of sake at Sake Hall.
The hotel may not be big but there are separate Capitol Kempinski restaurants that focus on Thai, German, Spanish, Italian, Singapore, American, European and Japanese cuisines. It is an interesting place to eat near City Hall MRT, especially for lunch on a rainy day in Singapore.
Katachi Style Sushi at the retail part of the Capitol Kempinski Hotel is a good-looking Japanese restaurant. With a convenient underground connection to the City Hall MRT station, we were able to get there for lunch without getting wet by the heavy rain.
