Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe 塚田農場美人鍋 (Chinatown)

My first attempt to try the Bijin Nabe at Plaza Singapura failed when we arrived at 5.30pm, only 30 minutes after they have opened at 5pm. The restaurant was fully occupied and the waiting list was long which we were told that we might get the seats at around 8.30pm or 9.30pm. We gave up!

And my second attempt was at Chinatown Point which we started queuing at 4.50pm. I know it's a bit early but we've gotten 2nd in the queue.

So why is there such a long queue? It's because of the soup stock known as "Golden Jidori Soup". According to Tsukada Nojo, they stew the chicken bones for over 8 hours so that their golden broth is natural and rich in collagen.

The following ingredients are included for 2 persons. S$25 per person.
This is the popular soup stock - Golden Jidori Soup.
 The staff will serve the chicken meat when the soup is ready
 We chose the Thin Egg noodle which I'd suggest not to leave in the soup for too long as it'll become soggy
We also ordered the Nikumaki Onigiri which were very filling due to the rice balls.
I think one is enough for one person. They all taste almost the same.
 If it's not enough, could order more by topping up
Other dishes - Chicken Nanban, Steamed Meatball Dumplings, Fried Chicken Wing, etc
They provided us with seaweed to mix with the soup
And a small dessert
