Kobini Store is located deep in the busy roads of Greenhills. We had to battle heavy traffic to get all the way to this place–Good thing I still remember the exact location.
Their flyer denotes that ‘Konbini’ is the Japanese term for ‘Convenience store’. So as the name suggests, it’s a small convenience store filled with imported Japanese snacks, drinks, condiments, etc. Seriously, if I could, I would walk around the store for minutes
without buying a single thing.
Look at all of these goodies! I wanted to buy strawberry crush Pocky, sakura & green tea Kitkat, Japanese snack cakes and a tall bottle of CC Lemon, but unfortunately we didn’t have enough cash at that moment. And as I mentioned earlier, the stuff that they sell is directly imported from Japan, so it’s a bit pricier than usual.
Konbini Store also has a small Japanese restaurant located at the back. They serve ramen, gyoza, karaage, maki, and gohan.
Tonkotsu ramen. The noodles were long, thin, and reminded me of pasta. The pork bone broth tasted really milky. And the slices of pork meat were thin and melted in your mouth. They also have slim ebi tempura, which tasted a bit bland.
Meaty gyoza, which is slightly a bit bigger than the other gyozas I’ve tried.
Flavorful California maki.
Veggie ramen, with shoyu (soy sauce) base.
The food was okay, but if I were to come back here, it would be for the convenience store. But if you’re looking for a cheap, yet tasty and filling ramen lunch, then this would be the perfect place to go! ^^
