Benkei Japanese / Korean Cuisine @ NUS Science Canteen

Colleagues and I made a trip to the NUS Science Canteen yesterday. We realise that the old Japanese stall that was closed has now reopened and it's 'under new management'. We thought we should give it a try.

It's a two in one stall. The main signboard says Benkei Japanese Cuisine, but the secondary board says Benkei Korean Cuisine.

DPuk tried the Oyako Don $3.50.

I had the Ten Tama Don $3.50

To us, the food's ok, taste good too, Definitely a 100% improvement compared to the previous Japanese food stall in the same location. But we concluded that the portion's a bit small.

(Small is a bias comparison :-) by many people who eats here.
Explanation: Things in the canteens are NUS have an average of $2 for most meals. But when someone charges $3.50, your expectations in the 'NUS Canteen Economy' must raise a high percentage right? haha... Yes, that's the bias. )

Happened to pass by this blog and just to clarify ur doubt, the benkei at amara was of the same owner but due to some reasons, they split partnership and now the amara one is owned by mr neo =D
he did not change the name of the shop. so, the stall at amara and nus are of different owners now. =D
i have not tasted the nus's benkei food but the amara's benkei is really good!
price range from SGD4~SGD8.90
recommendations: saba shioyaki set & salmon teriyaki set.
the sauce is homemade, no msg and it tastes very good =D
hope this helped =DD
