Food Review of Udon GOEN

Thanks Fazirah for the kind invitation to this food tasting session. I love Japanese food and it's nice to taste authentic Japanese food cooked by native Japanese chef. And it is not all-udon at Udon GOEN, a humble stall located within Wisma Atria’s Food Republic. They have a revamped menu and their Japanese chef just arrived from Tokyo last month. The latest addition to its menu, Japanese Tonkatsu Curry Rice has become a hot favourite among its customers ever since its introduction.

Udon GOEN is no amateur when it comes to serving Japanese Curry Rice. At Udon GOEN, crispy fried tonkatsu lies on a bed of rice with delectably rich and thick curry. But theirs is no ordinary curry. To achieve a flavourful gravy, Executive Chef, Kumasaka Kazunari added tonkotsu stock (pork bones boiled for at least 10 hours) instead of water as soup base. Kazunari, who for years, honed his skills at a famous restaurant in Japan says, “In Singapore, the industry is highly saturated. With that many choices, the people here can easily differentiate between good and mediocre Japanese Curry Rice. To win the hearts of the locals here, knowing the art of making Japanese Curry Rice isn’t enough. You have to understand the locals’ palate." Well, really appreciate every single fine detail that goes into the preparation of this tasty curry rice dish.

It is not only the flavorful taste that makes this plate of curry rice incredibly satisfying, but also be blown away by its generous portion (you have to see it to believe it!) Prices start at $7.80 and the portions make it such a steal, with the flexibility of customised add-ons! Apart from Japanese Tonkatsu Curry Rice, Big Size (Platter) is another item worthy of a mention. Big Size consists of crispy fried items like chicken katsu and fried prawn on a bed of Japanese curry rice, fit for sharing between 2 - 3 people at an affordable platter price from only $14.80. This is undoubtedly value for money, what more with ingredients freshly flown in from Kagawa, Japan! Fresh and great value for money, what are you waiting for? Do visit Udon Goen at Food Republic at Wisma Atria.

Check out the huge serving of this Japanese Katsu original curry rice! And this is not the biggest serving on their menu! 

The serving of Japanese Double Katsu original curry rice is really generous, which is nice to share amongst 2 pax!

For only $10.80, you get to try out both the pork as well as chicken katsu in this Japanese Double Katsu original curry rice, which is really value for money!

Check out the thickness of the katsu served! The curry served is thick and flavorful.

I love the soup base of the Tonkotsu Special Ramen, the taste is just right, not too salty nor bland.
