Man Man is not easy to get to if you’re not familiar with the Outram/ Chinatown district. Do study your route the night before (okay la, morning study also can. I was just too excited.) so you won’t get lost and end up not making the first batch because Man Man requires all guests to arrive before they will seat you. The seating capacity is small (30 odd?), don’t say I never warn you.
Fluffy egg roll! I really liked the soft and light texture of the egg, but I think they precooked a lot of these beforehand so by the time it was served, it wasn’t piping hot anymore. 😦 The unagi embedded within wasn’t outstanding as well. You may want to skip this dish.
Best. Unagi. Ever. The closest in taste I got to this unagi were the ones I ate at an unagi specialty store in Japan. It’s not your usual dull and flat tasting eel. The meat is chunky, the skin is slightly charred, and the sauce not too overwhelming (you must eat it with the white rice, which in itself isn’t soaked with the sauce). Mm smokey. This is real unagi for you.
For this particular set, you get to eat your unagi 4 ways. Plain, with seaweed and spring onions, with freshly grated wasabi, or with the soup stock that they provided (forgot to snap a picture, bugger. The soup is in the little black pot at the top left hand corner of the tray).
They also do provide a range of unagi sauces – sweet, normal, spicy as well as Japanese pepper so do play around as much as you like.
Definitely a must go. I don’t think I’ve eaten a better unagi in Singapore.
