New Outlet! Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe 塚田農場.美人鍋 at Liang Court

I got really excited after I saw the news of the new Liang Court branch opening in Oct on their official FB page. We gather the usual Bijin Nabe 美人鍋 gang, and went on a quiet Tue. We were happy to find an empty entrance with one or two early birds still waiting for their gangs outside.

Liang Court

The empty week old restaurant

Once our gang has reported full strength onsite, we were quickly ushered in to an empty table. The restaurant was 80% unoccupied at 7pm (20 Oct 2015). We placed order almost immediately as we already knew what to eat (we are regulars). Here are the usual stuffs we would eat every 3-4 months at Tsukada Nojo.


Yuzu mayo Nikumaki

Chicken Nanban

The Bijin Nabe (Collagen Hotpot) Set is still $25++ per pax, comes with a choice of noodles and one free soup refill. The other ala carte side dishes we ordered are available at all outlets too. At the end of the satisfying meal, we were served the complimentary jelly (flavor varies daily) with cute drawings.

Apple Jelly for the day

The restaurant being extremely new, is a little understaffed even though they are not running a full house then. They've forgotten to serve us the sauces, and missed out the seaweed they're supposed to introduce halfway through the meal. Food was great though. We hope that they will beef up the service when business starts to pick up when more people gets to know of the existence of this outlet.
