Tamoya Udon has been on my must-try list ever since I came to know about it from Burpple Beyond. Fortunately for me, they opened up a conveniently-located outlet at Plaza Singapura in early 2020, which was just perfect!
About the Restaurant
The outlet is located on the 6th floor, right next to the food court. It is definitely popular as you can tell from the long queue that greeted us when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon.
It’s all pretty much self-service here (which is probably how they keep prices to low!). To order, you let the chef know what you want and they make it fresh right in front of you. Then you can pick out any tempura you want in addition and proceed to make payment at the counter. Simple!
Do also check for any promotions being run on Burpple Beyond! They used to have a one-for-one set, but it has since been changed to 30% off the total bill which is a pretty great deal as well. 🙂
Tamoya Udon Bestsellers
Every table had a bowl of Sanuki Beef Egg Udon ($11.60); I am not even kidding. This is one of Tamoya’s specialties and for a good reason too.
The combination of savory broth, thinly sliced fatty beef and runny egg is just divine. Not to mention the bottomless tempura flakes and seaweed that just round out this super authentic dish. I will get cravings for this for sure.
Besides their signature beef udon, the Black Garlic Tonkatsu Udon ($11.20) was a winner as well. The broth was a bit lighter than normal ramen broths but overall still rich and satisfying.
Cheap and Good Tempura
The tempura choices were pretty good as well! We tried the eggplant tempura ($1.20, wow) and chicken gyoza ($2). Both were nicely crisp on the outside and still succulent on the inside. Would have liked it better if it was more freshly fried, but for the price I can’t really argue much.
I will definitely be coming back here. The food is super worth it for the price and everything we tried was pretty great. Do give it a try if you are in the area!
