I have been passing by Shin Tamagoyaki@The Starling since it first opened not too long ago. I went to have a look at the menu and learnt that they specialize in tamagoyaki which is Japanese style rolled omelette.
Now, I love eggs and I love omelettes. But somehow I do not like tamagoyaki. I found the ones that I have eaten at Japanese restaurants too sweet and the texture too firm. From then on, I avoid tamagoyaki like the plague. Because of that, I gave Shin Tamagoyaki a miss.
Then one day, I saw this banner.
Oh! I do love poke bowls! So I could not resist trying the Tamago Mentai Poke Don Set. It so happened that I was very hungry that morning and paid a visit (in spite of already having breakfast at home).
You order at the counter, pay and then wait for your order number to be called. I was pleasantly surprised to be given a discount voucher for my next visit.
After a while, my number was called and I went to pick up my food.
Another nice surprise was the complimentary tamagoyaki. Well, if it is free, I don't mind eating it hee..hee.... The first item I ate was the tamagoyaki.
I took a tentative bite and was very pleased that the omelette was light and fluffy and only slightly sweet. It was very nice, a far cry from tamagoyakis that I have eaten in the past.
Yes, I could like this. And then it was time to eat my Tamago Mentai Poke Don.
I find poke bowls so attractive. You have rice and a little bit of this and that. Let's take a look at the banner again to see what's in the bowl.
It was nice enough, not something you should rush over for. It made for a very nice light meal.
I enjoyed this and I won't mind having it again. Over here, you are expected to clean up after yourself.
For the uninitiated, let me show you where and how.
There you go. You'll see this cupboard-looking-thing and throw the paper plate and plastic cutlery into the concealed bin. But don't throw everything out, ya...hah...hah...
I think I'll drop by again when I want a light meal.
