Media Tasting at Kiyoshi Japanese Restaurant
From Bright, Shining, Clear, Kiyoshi giving focus on light and wholesome meal for diners. Kiyoshi Japanese Restaurant specialises in hand-kneading and hand-stretched Inaniwa udon. This is one very popular type all hailed from the tiny village of Inaniwa in Inakawa machi, Akita prefecture. Chef Kiyoshi learnt the art of making Inaniwa udon in Japan and it requires special equipment. Kiyoshi Japanese Restaurant is one of the few Japanese restaurants in Singapore that serves Inaniwa Udon for its soft texture and also easy to swallow. As compared to the regular udon, Inaniwa udon is hand-stretched, cream coloured and slightly thinner and smoother in texture. Besides the Signature Inaniwa udon, Kiyoshi also offers sashimi, yakitori, donburi, ramen as well as bento sets. The best seller items are Aburi Salmon Salad Udon, Tempura Oroshi Udon and Tem Chirashi Udon. These cold udon is generally well-received for its refreshing, light taste. Good for Singapore’s tropical climate.
Whether you pair it with a glass of beer, these skewers are hard to go wrong. From yakitori to more fancy skewer offerings including, Buta Bara (Pork Belly with Teriyaki Sauce), Bacon Aspara Maki (Asparagus wrapped with Bacon), Gyu Enoki Maki (Enoki wrapped with Sliced Beef), Tebasaki (Grilled Chicken Wings), Cheese Maki (Mozzarella Cheese wrapped with Sliced Pork). My pick goes to the soft and stretchy mozzarella cheese wrapped with thinly sliced pork.
This cold thin udon is packed with a melody of assorted tempura such as scallop, cherry tomato, mushroom, avocado and capsicum. Enjoy the tempura crunch while slurping on comforting udon. I’ve enjoyed the avocado tempura the most, it becomes very creamy and is delicious.

You might be surprise of the star ingredient for this dish. It is actually the grated radish with ginger. Mix the rest of the ingredients including wild vegetables, seaweed, bonito flakes and cold thin noodles. The grated radish added a gentle sweetness to the taste and tangles well with the slippery udon. The grated ginger gave a fresh aftertaste.
