Blogger Food Review: Japanese Express @ NUS

Japanese Express

Japanese Express

This is another new stall in NUS Engine Canteen. In fact it just opened 2 weeks ago. It replaced that horrible Nonya store that always had no queue. I went there twice in the last six months and they always didn’t have what I wanted so I was forced to compromise on whatever they have. Their food is ok but nothing special. I am glad to say that this new Japanese stall is a much better improvement.

The new stall is called Japanese Express and it’s by Megabites. If I remember correctly, Megabites was the same people who was running the temporay canteen at the arts car park when Arts canteens was under renovation about 2 years ago.

I ordered the Sakana Karsu Curry Rice set. It was an opening promotion so it was only $3 🙂 Basically its breaded fish with Japanese Curry dripped over rice. I think this is better than the Arts Canteen stall. The curry is not very spicy even after I sprinkled some chilli powder on it. The portion is pretty good for school canteen size. For the breaded fish, the breading is not too thick so you can still taste the fish. The fish is so so. Nothing Special about it.

Overall I think they get a 3.5 rating for taste and a 5/5 rating for price.!

    Wah thanks for the info, I’ll definitely go check it out! I have never regarded the Japanese food at the arts canteen as “good”, I always thought the Japanese stall that existed at Engine canteen was much better. Too bad it closed down.. The salmon set was really good at that stall!

    Megabites had pretty good stuff when they set up the temp arts canteen, but I think its a company like koufu that hires hawkers, so its not really revealing of the quality of the food.. Megabites has a medium sized cafe at Science by the way, specializing in western food: “http://singapuradailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/12/megabites-nus-science-canteen.html”
    Okay lah, I’ll rate 3.5 also la..not exceptional but edible..

    Time to try the engine jap stall!!! Thanks for the post!!!!
