I like the tentacles which were slightly crispy. The charcoal flavour is infused in the squid but parts of it may be slightly burnt (explains the cut off tips). Portion for the dons are on the small side for most. Chicken nanban was sufficiently filling although it would be wise to share else it is quite jelat.

Take a break between shopping sprees and fuel up at this Vivo City joint that sees a focus on bowls. The Kurokuta Hoho Don ($16) sees melt-in-your-mouth smoky, fatty pork cheek slices slathered in sweet teriyaki sauce, served on fluffy white rice. For a gamier experience, go for the Premium Wagyu Don ($28) that makes up for it’s loftier price tag with generous slabs of quality beef. The variety here is also worth a mention — come back to try more yummy bowls like the Buta Don ($12), Aburi Salmon Don ($13) and Buta Bara Don ($15).

Succulent fried chicken drenched in thick creamy tartare sauce. Worth every calorie!

Was choosing between this dish and the chicken karaage but since Aburi-EN is a grilled meat specialist, it wasn’t that difficult to decide right?

All I can say is wow. The Sumibi Chicken Yakitori ($8.90) is incredible. The smoky aroma wafts into your nostrils the instant the dish is brought to your table, the level of charring is just nice to add a layer of complexity to the taste without overpowering the taste of the meat. The chicken pieces are plump, tender and juicy, even bordering on the edge of being undercooked as some of the thicker pieces were still slightly pink on the inside. Worth getting as a side for extra protein supplement to the rice bowls!

Some days you just gotta treat yo-self right? The Premium Wagyu Don comes with a premium price tag of $28 but for the quality, it is worth it.

My don was served in 5 minutes after ordering, which was really quick considering I’ve seen some reviews that mention a wait time of 30 minutes. There’re 3 slices of thicker Wagyu beef on the right, and 5 very fine slices on the left of the bowl. The marbling on the Wagyu is amazing! They’re drenched in the grilling sauce, and laid atop shimeji mushrooms on a bed of fluffy Japanese rice. I was in awe of how tender and melt in your mouth these fatty beef slices were. Even my dad who doesn’t like beef really loved the thin slices! The thicker slices are grilled to medium doneness, revealing a juicy pinkish interior when bitten into. All the meat and mushrooms were dripping in mouth-watering savoury sauce that I wish they’d provided more of as the rice on its own was really plain and tasteless without sauce.

If you love beef, you will love this bowl and it’s definitely worth treating yourself once in a while :)

Choosing between the buta don and the hoho don was a hard decision as they both looked so good. The idea of pork jowl won in the end though.

This bowl took about 15 minutes to serve, which was pretty long compared to the beef bowl. However, if you have time to spare, this is definitely worth the wait. The pork jowl is thinly sliced and so tender that it gives with very little effort and melts in your mouth. It’s grilled to perfection, with an amazing smoky charcoal aroma. Would be better with more sauce for the rice. At $16, this bowl is value for money given the quality!
