Wagyu Beef Rump Cap Don

Truffle wagyu don ($16)
⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
🍴So many modern/ fusion options at the hip @thebedokmarketplace that we were spoilt for choice and definitely planning on a return trip.

Enjoyable wagyu don that came with a generous serving of minced beef and thin wagyu beef slices at this price point. Loved the slight char yet tender minced wagyu that had distinct but not overpowering truffle aroma. Although retaining a pink interior, would have liked for the lean rump slices to be juicier. Given their name, also felt that the slices could do with more sear and smokiness. The onsen egg added glorious creaminess while the wasabi was a great earthy, spicy balance (wished there was more of it!).

Travelled to the East for the 𝙒𝙖𝙜𝙮𝙪 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙡𝙚 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙚 (~$16), topped with a flowy onsen egg 🍳 Surprisingly, the truffle scent and taste was strong, and I found myself liking the mince. The Wagyu beef was generous in portion though slightly too dry for my liking — nonetheless this was a steal at the price.

My go to when I feel like having cheap and good Wagyu Don!

Juicy slices of Wagyu beef that were so soft and not having a single trace of tendon. Minced Wagyu was equally flavourful and well marinated! Mixed in the onsen egg, there you have a hearty bowl of goodness. This is worth every penny. 😍

This did not disappoint at all! Was more impressed by the pork cheeks than the wagyu beef, it was perfection😍!! Though i have to say i preferred the rice in the wagyu bowl due to the combination of the truffle minced beef and onsen egg with rice. Apart from Grilllo at Suntec, this shop is comparable in terms of price and taste when it comes to jap donburis! 8.5/10👍🏻

First impression: I think I will like the sliced beef more
First sense: The truffle smell is so strong and alluring 😍

Verdict: Loved the truffle minced beef much more than the wagyu beef slices not just because of the strong truffle flavour, but also because the latter fell short of expectations when it's said to have a marbling score of 4/5 - it wasn't as juicy nor fatty as expected, but still tender! The onsen egg really helped in binding the ingredients together as you mix it all up, and gave each mouthful a creamy consistency which leaves you wanting more 🤤 So good.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Too sinewy, I almost preferred the cheap beef mince (which just so you know, actually makes up half the meat portion).

Back for the extremely affordable wagyu beef rump cap steak ($13) and I was still impressed with its smokiness, flavour and marbling (the bits of crispy juicy fat that burst in the mouth were so sinful but delightful)!!!!

Small in looks, but fills you up. Wagyu rump was tender and went well with the generous portion of truffle sauce. Fulfilled.

Wagyu Don with Foie Gras ($18 nett) - Comparing this to the original, there were not even half the number of beef slices-- only 5. But the Foie Gras was a solid good size; creamy & tastes great. You decide if forking out the extra $ is worth it.
