My family and I like to try out new places to eat especially when it has healthy dishes because I try to feed wholesome foods to our children at all times (of course we’ll have the occasional cheat days or weekend treats, too!). Recently, we tried the newly opened restaurant in S Maision, Conrad Manila called Bijin Nabe by Tsukada Nojo to try their most prized dish, the signature Beauty Hot Pot soup which has many beauty and medicinal benefits.
Here’s what we had:
Romaine Lettuce Caesar Salad to start because we need our live enzymes from fresh greens!
Maximum Fried Eggplant was my favorite appetizer of the meal! The mix of textures of the outer crunch and soft eggplant inside just melts gloriously in the mouth!
Nikumaki is a pork based dish (rice ball wrapped in bacon) so my daughter and I passed on this but my parents had a go and really liked it, too!
Now comes the main dish! The Beauty Hot Pot Collagen Soup which has its origins from Japan and now is very famous also in other countries. Apparently, this is the beauty secret of many women. We heard that to get a table in their Singapore branch, you will need to wait in line for 60 minutes! Glad we were able to try it sooner than the crowds came!
Here’s what I lifted from their main website, here:
“TSUKADA NOJO is located in Miyazaki prefecture, Kyushu Japan. It has the most historical and popular way of poultry raising. Miyazaki Jitokko known as the organic chicken is appreciated by everyone. We provide the best quality of golden collagen chicken stock, in a safety and natural environment.
Our signature Golden Collagen chicken stock is stewed more than 8 hours until the chicken bones are fully dissolved. Eventually, chicken stock turns into a smooth and silky collagen pudding. The BIJIN NABE is a combination of the freshest vegetables, seafood and chicken cooked in our Golden Collagen Chicken Stock. We ensure that collagen will be the key of your beautiful skin and health.
You can enjoy our BIJIN NABE with genuine organic vegetables which is safe and healthy for your body. —- Ooooh, I love that! There is a tremendous difference in life forces of organic and non-organic produce. I am glad that they choose to support organic farmers, too!
Of course, we always leave room for dessert!
