Mentaikoyaki

$9.90 ยท 66 Reviews

Portions are on the smaller side. This bowl is healthy alright - it's practically sauceless. Rice is dry. Broccoli is an add-on (+$1), without it, the bowl would be much emptier. Salmon is not bad but nothing to shout about. There are much more colourful and delicious poke/salmon options in the area. I ate here after work before rushing off to night class. I must say, only a subpar, depressing, expensive CBD meal like this one could have truly reflected that dreariness.

$11.9. I really like how itโ€™s customizable, but I somehow always go for this combi anyway. Decided to get the half avocado this time (treat yoself) and it was pretty good!! Felt decent for a $2 top up.

This is my go-to whenever I'm around Tanjong Pagar. I mean where can u find $9.90 MENTAIKO salmon bowls??

Had the poke bowl with greens and I love it! Portion of salmon poke was not stingy and very flavourful!

The aburi garlic salmon my boyfriend had was the monthly specials and ohboy I had to stop myself from stealing his food cos he loves it alot too ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ it was creamy but not gelat, fragrant from the garlic and also with a little burnt taste from the torched parts ๐Ÿ˜

Finding a lunch place around the Tanjong Pagar area was more complicated then I thought, as most restaurants were packed with diners. Fortunately, I managed to secure a seat at Salmon Samurai rather quickly.

I ordered the Salmon Mentaiko & Chilled Citrus Ramen (S$9.90) which came with cold ramen noodles tossed in cold sauce and some sliced salmon Sashimi that were lined with Mentaiko mayonnaise before delicately finished with some flaming.

The meal felt healthy, and also somewhat hearty (probably because of the noodles), but it was also possible to select the mixed greens option to make this an absolutely healthy meal.

$9.90 for a satisfying salmon bowl !!
Today we had a usual mentaiko salmon bowl as well as their flavour of the month - Garlic aburi salmon!
If youโ€™re not into seared salmon, you can always request for fully cooked salmon !

Can we just talk about how affordable this place is?!? $9.90 for salmon rice bowls at the TP area is a REAL STEAL ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Never had makis topped with pork floss before so it was rly interesting. But.... I thought that the cut of salmon used for the maki could have been better tho..... It kinda felt like they used the leftover portions of the salmon to create the makis. Expected something better considering its the same price as the rice bowls but it was worth a try....

Would go back again for the mentaiko salmon but perhaps skip the poke because I thought that the marinade on the poke wasn't that prominent (couldn't rly taste anything ๐Ÿคซ)

The Mentaiko Salmon was decent, and for the price, this was definitely a sizeable portion. Mix in the torched Mentaiko sauce to layer the light soba base; though it can get jelat, so consuming it all may not be the best idea ๐Ÿค” (especially if youโ€™re trying to โ€˜eat cleanโ€™)
.
The Prawn Roe was a huge portion for the top up; so let yourself go ๐Ÿคช

Itโ€™s amazing how dining establishments at all price points have jumped into action to promptly put in place the Singapore governmentโ€™s guidelines to help keep those of us who choose to dine out in this unprecedentedly challenging time, safe.

Like when we visited @salmonsamurai a couple of days ago for lunch, there were clear markings everywhere to instruct customers where to stand and sit. The four of us had arrived late, around 2pm, so we got a table immediately. Each of us filled up a form, mixing and matching to create our own salmon bowls. While TH, my niece and her friend chose bases of Yuzu Ume Rice and Udon topped with their preferred preparation style of salmon, I zeroed in on the โ€œSeared Mala Mentaiko Salmon with Chilled Citrus Ramenโ€ ($9.90) and added an extra protein topping of โ€œSeared Mentaiko Salmonโ€ ($6.50). Loved it! The slices of salmon tasted fresh but it was the two mentaiko toppings that were the icing on the cake for me, the mala flavoured one especially ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹. It was a match made in heaven with the cold, springy and refreshingly fragrant strands of ramen.

Of course if you wish to enjoy their salmon bowls at home or anywhere else for that matter, you can order them to takeaway or to be delivered (they have an ongoing promotion for FREE islandwide delivery if you spend $50 and above). Just visit their website:

I actually really like the ramen in this combo, the refreshing flavors of yuzu citrus is a great combo with the creamy salmon
