Ueno is one of my favourite area of Tokyo. When you walk around Ueno, you could see, and feel, the layers of the time gone by in Tokyo. In Ameyoko, where you can find a market of fresh food and world-class denim and workwear, it felt like time was frozen in the 80s. At the same time, the train station’s exterior remains relatively unchanged since 1932.

Wheeler’s Yard must have, or soon to have, one of the most photographed facades of a cafe ever. It also must be one of the most spacious cafe in Singapore. Even the al fresco area, and the atas bike shop (or the bike atelier as it is called atas-ly), is sheltered by the hanger-like warehouse. It is really kid-friendly as well with all that space to run around. The overall experience with the space is very nice. And, that is the key about this cafe that will make me go back again.
It really doesn’t matter what people say; Keisuke Tonkotsu King ramen cannot be over-rated. The pork broth packs so much punch you will feel like you ate Miss Piggy. Plus, you can customise your ramen to your pleasure. I like my noodle al dente.
Although it doesn’t feel like it, there are actually a lot of eateries around Singapore’s CBD that isn’t Korean. For around 10 bucks, you do have a lot of choices and The Rotisserie is one of them.
If there is only one guarantee when you have your lunch at The Rotisserie, it be that you be having food coma soon after. With an average price of 12 bucks, it is really quite reasonable for a self-service restaurant that strives on stuffing your face with food in the CBD.
