A hop away from massively overbooked sister hole-in-the-wall, Teppei, Hanare on Tanjong Pagar has the same odd winning formula that has queues snaking out of Yamashita Teppei’s Orchid Hotel joint.
Simple, functional furnishings? Check. Cheap Japanese cuisine that’s mostly holds true to its flavour roots? Check. Teppei’s signature, super craveable chunky chirashi? Hell yeah. Teppei’s famed bowl ($17.60) – it’s overwhelming, but in a good way – of sashimi salmon, tuna swordfish, surf clam and roe no doubt draws crowds their way where the buffet falls short.
