Chanko Nada Restaurant 相撲部屋料理 ちゃんこ洋(なだ)

November 27, 2009

Sumo Pot in Orchard Plaza

I haven’t been there for ages and i only found out recently that the owner sold the restaurant away. The current owner changed the whole concept of the restaurant to Chanko Nada. But there’s not much changes made to the place itself as the chef and workers are still the same. The only changes were probably the introduction of the Chanko Nabe, the speciality and the introduction of the various sumo posters on the wall.

What is Chanko Nabe? Do a quick search and you can find this on Wikipedia;
It’s actually Chanko Nabe, which is food for the soul of sumo wrestler.

There are four versions of soup found here –  Shio (Salt Based), Miso and Curry.  If you want Izakaya food, they have quite a variety too (including Chicken Bones).

In Singaporean terms, it may actually pull it off as steamboat but in fact, Chanko Nabe (ちゃんこ鍋) is more sophisticated as this is one pot of Japanese Stew filled with the following;

  • Tori Dango 「鳥団子」Chicken meatballs

  • Kurobuta 「黒豚」Sliced Pork
  • Mushrooms
  • Daikon (Radish) and Carrots
  • Beancurd
  • Konnyaku (The healthy japanese food)
  • Lots of Vegetables (Bak Choy, Bean sprouts)

There’s no exact ingredients found in a Chanko Nabe but generally, the ingredients used at Chanko Nada are the common ones.

We love the  Tori Dango (Chicken Meatballs) so much that we just have to get an extra plate of it at $8.

As mentioned earlier, there’s a minimum order of 2 Pax in Chanko Nabe. It costs about $70 (Including Service charge and GST) for a Pot of Chanko Nabe) But seriously, the portion is huge! So a Chanko Nabe for 2 Person can easily fill 3 People.

For the experience, for the fun of it.
