Romankan Yokohama @ Takashimaya Basement

It's Takashimaya's card member add an extra 15% off sale. Sis and Momo are stocking up their L'occitane moisturizers etc. (It's the only time you get their stuff for 15% off)

Our younger sis is getting married in the UK. We will be attending her wedding there next week. So we asked her what she wants as a gift from her big bro and big sis. She said a memory foam pillow. A pillow? You want us to bring a pillow all the way from Singapore to London? Here's the funny reason. Her future in laws got their son (her future husband) one memory foam pillow, but did not her one. She was a bit jealous that they did not get it for her. LOL...

So, don't worry sis, your ever doting big bro and sis here got you a better pillow. Yours is an original Tempur instead.

For the rest reading this, if you want a Tempur, now's the best time to get it from Taka. The Queen size L size pillow is usually $299. But they are having a $50 off promo, which makes it $249. If you are a taka card holder, you get 15% off the price at the payment counter. (Plus, if you are a Taka Platinum card holder, you get another 6% off in terms of rebates) So you get around $80 plus off these 4 days.

Anyway, back to food. We are busy shopping, walking around gets you hungry. We headed to the basement to look for a quick bite. We saw empty seats at Romankan Yokohama at Basement 2. With the maddening crowds, we just took the empty table.

Sis had the Rosu Katsu that comes in a pan. $15

Momo also had the Rosu Katsu, but off the pan. LOL $13

I had the chicken katsu. $11.50

They were all served like this.

Sis was not particularly impressed with it. I remember it to be better too the last time I was here. Maybe it's not the cook's day? Too busy because of the big traffic flow these few days during the sale?

The katsu were all nicely deep fried, moist inside, crispy outside. But it just had something missing and we could not figure out what. Anyway, we were too preoccupied with shopping.

Sometimes it's that missing X-Factor that makes all the difference, rite?

This is one of my fav. jap bentos :) If you ask for takeaway, it's a huge box with lots of sides in it.

Oh dear, I just read your blog and hope you have not bought your pillow yet as it is cheaper to buy it here in UK plus the fact that you don't have to lug it all the way there!

PatriCa BB, Carlos,
Thanks! :-)

ya, and we wonder what the X is!

Mrs Sze,
Next time I shall try take away and compare the difference. hehe.

izit? too late. it's bought.
never mind, our 2 check in luggage is going to be quite empty. only filled with things like (don't laugh ok?) Konnyaku Premix Jelly Powder, Dried Kelp for soup, Agar agar strips, Eu Yan Sang Bak Kut Teh spices, Eu Yan sang Herbal Tea Egg spices. and the likes. Plus lots of prima taste premix.
(even 2 packs of belachan! haha..)

Make sure belachan doesn't spill onto the rest of the stuff. I had a bottle of balsamic vinegar break in my suitcase before. I had to air the bag for days. Eek.

tina said...

My dear, where in London is your sister? only thing we can't get here is the Konnyaku powder and belachan. It is apparently now banned! Ask you sis to email me if she needs any help from this auntie.
My email is
Let me know when u will be in London
