✨Wagyu Beef Donburi✨
The beef was easy to chew, and not too rare. It was soft and tender, but there was not much flavour on its own. I feel they should add more pepper to it. The egg yolk adds a nice gooey texture to the entire dish, connecting the beef and rice together. It is the ingredient that makes this dish stand out from other restaurants. There is a creamy sauce as well, which I personally think it goes well with the meat. The Japanese rice was not dry, hence was able to eat it on its own without any sauce. It is not a mind-blowing dish, but it looks really appetising and it is quite good quality for a reasonable price.

Impromptu lunch at Somerset area and we decided to try out Gyu Nami as we heard great reviews about it. The roast beef was indeed tender and wasn't overcooked and it paired pretty well with the restaurants's homemade sauce! However, we felt that the rice was overly clumpy and it was not nice; the restaurant might have used too much water in the rice! 😐

Do remember to use your Burpple vouchers if you subscribed to Burpple Beyond as you will enjoy two bowls of donburi at $25 nett!!

Delicious and affordable Wagyu Roast Beef Donburi. Thinly sliced well-cooked beef, paired with a perfectly cooked onsen egg and sauce.

🍴Missed my chance to visit when it used to be at Amoy and then always found it too crowded so I’m glad the hype has faded. The thin roasted beef slices are tender and nicely seasoned, with an accompanying mix of sauce, yogurt, and onsen egg that made it not dry. However, felt that it could do with less soya sauce & more yogurt for better balance as it was a tad on the saltier side. Have heard that the portions have shrunk as the price has gone up but with #burpplebeyond, it’s $12.50 nett with miso soup which is reasonable for the ~6-8 beef slices and town standards. Sides are an added $5 and while pretty pricey, we really enjoyed the #tamago that was soft, almost soufflé-like, and with a nice Unami touch from the mentaiko. Best part of our meal was the really friendly auntie (owner’s mum) who helps out on occasional weekdays when they are short of staff.

the proportion of beef and rice was like 1:2. it came with a miso soup but the miso soup was lacking in flavour and didn’t have any seaweed or tofu!!

beef on its own was good!!! and what’s a donburi without an egg. it looks good aesthetically but as a whole i’ll rate this 50/50.

plus we didn’t know it came with a drink. we only found out when it was on the receipt!!!!

service is not so good ;(

The beef was nicely cooked and seasoned, albeit a bit thinner than I remembered from when I had it at Amoy. Nonetheless it was a hearty and filling dish that made dinner very enjoyable!

$12.50 due to 1-for-1 (courtesy of my friend) and it's the best beef bowl I ever had. Wagyu beef topped with light black pepper seasoning and just the right amount of saltines, as well as an egg yolk and the white roasted sesame sauce really made the perfect combination, especially for a first meal out after a long covid break.

Portion is a tad smaller than usual and i won't pay the full price for it but it's really good and if there were another 1-for-1 or discounted price I will definitely be back again.

(Ambience was pretty comfortable and cozy, employee and boss(?) were also really friendly and helpful!!)

Came back to patronise because I had such an enjoyable time savouring the wagyu roast beef don the last time (I gave it 5🌟). However, with high expectations means greater disappointment when you realise the standard isn’t really consistent. After tasting how delicious it could be the previous time, this dish this time paled in comparison. It lacked a huge amount of flavour present in the dish the previous time, especially the charred, peppery taste which contributed to the overall tastiness of the dish. Perhaps they forgot to add something, or they added too little of the brown (?) sauce that I realised actually tasted good, and might be the factor which gives the flavour to both rice and beef. Nonetheless, I’ll be back to try again and give it a second chance.😊
