Ministry of Food

Walked past mof many times when i was shopping around at marina square. finally got a chance to try the food there, from the posters, the food looks very similar to what you get at azabu sabo. the queue was really long on a friday evening, waited more than half hour to get a seat. and the food was served very promptly after ordering.. very efficient.

Wasabi seafood salad. the dressing was really nice, personally i like wasabi, it's some sort of a wasabi mayo sauce, the seafood can be better though. doesn't seem really fresh, the ones at azabu was much better.
Agedashi tofu, friends ordered this and i realised when i was looking through the photos that i didn't try this.... so i guess there's nothing i can comment about the taste
Yakiniku bento set, meat is tender and really tasty, the egg is made quite ingeniously, i wonder how to make the egg into small little balls, sweet tasting egg over the rice is nice.
Cold soba. i always order this when i have jap food. the soba here seemed to be a little soft, not as chewy as i thought it should be. dun really think it's good.
Three colour bento set. If i'm not wrong , it's minced pork, diced cucumber and eggs. i personally find that diced cucumber tasted funny when mixed with rice like that. the egg is good..
Chicken karage (i'm not too sure if it's spelt this way). not as good as i expected since it was a chef recommendation. nothing special.
Unagi with tofu. i didn't get to try this as well.. but from the one who ordered this, it seems not bad.
Cannot remember the name, very obvious on the last page of the dessert menu, it's roasted mochi with peanut powder.. a little tasteless, good if you have many people to share, i feel that it's too boring to eat this whole thing if there's only 2 or 3 person.
Cannot remember the name too... try to recognise how it looks like and order it from the menu. the red bean paste was absolutely fantastic!! i will order this again just because of the red bean paste!! everything else in it is normal.
