Mixed Bowl Rice Set Meal. Photo Credit: Kogane Yama

An original concept by the people who brought in Chir Chir Chicken and Masizzim, Kogane Yama (or Golden Mountain) offers customisations to the satisfying tendon bowl. Each serving features a lavish heap of mouth-watering, perfectly fried, golden-brown pieces of tempura atop a mound of sweet Japanese rice and is reminiscent of the sloping valleys and mountains found in Japan. 

You can choose up to four different types of tendon bowl – chicken, prawn, vegetable or mixed for those who want to try everything in a bowl. The tempura is served with classic Japanese short-grain rice or top up a dollar to enjoy it with either soba or udon. Unlike any other tendon, Kogane Yama goes a step further and offers diners a selection of four tentsuyu sauces – sweet-and-savoury homemade blend of garlic, sesame oil, and premium Japanese shoyu (soya sauce).  The non-spicy version is perfect for kids and those who like playing it safe!

Price: $11.80 – $15.80
Location: Bugis Junction #02-50, 200 Victoria St, Singapore 188021
