Aburi Kaisen Chirashi Don

$26.90 · 30 Reviews

Comes with 2 slices each of maguro, salmon, hotate, hamachi, kajiki, salmon belly, ikura, tamago and cucumber. Quite a good amount of sashimi for $26.90. The rice is well seasoned too.

In the background is fried mini shrimps at $6.90. Not bad for a snack/appetiser!

Thick rich slices of sashimi on top of moist sticky sushi rice!

Usually order the aburi chirashi don which is quite hard to find in Singapore at this price point. 🍱

Not going to be a food blogger though it might be nice to be invited to free food tasting. Just reminiscing good food and #freetreats days. Next time, the nearest good food places will probably be JB. In pictures: aburi kaisen chirashi, salmon aburi and dragon roll,scallop mentaiyaki, 5 kind sashimi and fried fish skin. Wished that they didn't "overcook" with the aburi though. #farewelllunch #mondaymood #burpple #burpplesg #sashimi #japfoodie

I wrote about this back in 2015 (reproduced below) and years later things are still the same. The indulgent, sensual thickness of cut that The Sushi Bar practises may satisfy one's primal sashimi-hungry craves, but when applied to an aburi context, the segue between seared and raw becomes very jarring - instead of toeing the happy line of melted semi-solid, you get the unsettling, queasy psychological feeling that you're eating a slab of salmon that is half cooked as opposed to well, being intentionally raw (swipe to view what I mean). The aburi kaisen don came across worse this time, and the point about value I made in 2015 may have well become irrelevant given the current trend of far cheaper (bara) chirashi. 3.2/5

This is what I wrote back in 2015: "Evoked the feels I had when I discovered that a Komodo Dragon didn’t breathe fire or fly. Only the scallop emerged from the searing process a radically improved goddess – elsewhere, while the seductive aroma of melted fish fat permeated the air, the salmon was positively Jekyll/Hyde-esque with its cooked and uncooked personalities, the tuna had a most meaty mannerism, the swordtail was curiously cooked yet torrentially wet within, and the amberjack flapped its tail puzzledly. Still bloody value for money, though. 3.7/5"

The aburi chirashi don was amazing. The portion was so generous, I would say it's probably enough for 2 person. The fish was THICK, fresh and buttery, with just a hint of the savoury burnt taste. The rice was just the right amount of sweet and goes so well with the fish. This might be my new favourite Japanese restaurant.
