Beef Sukiyaki Don

$13.90 ยท 46 Reviews

Finding this place took a while, but the trip was worth it.
Not only do they cook it in front of you, they also ask what level of doneness you want your beef to be.
Beef was cooked to perfection and the meal comes with 2 side dishes chawanmushi and miso soup. The side dishes leave much to be desired surprisingly, but I wasnโ€™t there for that.
Beef sukiyaki in other places can get so cloyingly sweet but this one was actually pleasantly sweet, probably thanks to the quality of raw brown sugar being used.

Having read raving reviews about it, I decided to go with their ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› ๐™Ž๐™ช๐™ ๐™ž๐™ฎ๐™–๐™ ๐™ž ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฃ. Each bowl comes with miso soup, chawanmushi and an onsen egg which you can put on top of your rice.

Before the chef starts cooking, the meat is neatly presented on a tray and showed to us. While watching the chef do his magic, the aroma together with the sizzling makes my tummy grumble. I was salivating hard when the end product was finally presented to me. The beef was very flavorful and had the melt-in-the-mouth texture with just the right ratio of meat and fats. The sukiyaki sauce has a balanced sweet-savoury profile. After cooking the beef, the chef poured the rest of the sukiyaki sauce into a small bowl, allowing you to adjust the saltiness level according to your own liking.

At $14.90, I will definitely be back for more!

Enjoyed my meal here. Beef was cooked right infront of us, to our preferred done-ness. The set comes with soup, chawanmushi and an onsen egg. I especially loved the chawanmushi, custard-like texture instead of the usual watery type. Portion-wise, it was just nice for a big eater like me. Thereโ€™s a premium version of the bowl with wagyu beef @ $29.90, but Iโ€™m already very satisfied with the โ€œcheaperโ€ bowl. Will sure be back for the premium bowl when Iโ€™m feeling rich!

Talk about table service! Each Don (even if you didnโ€™t get the Kiwami Wagyu-$29.90) is lovingly prepared a la minute in front of you. The Singaporean chefs are quiet and meticulous. Medium-rare recommended! Love the shimeji mushrooms and scallions. Seating is really limited (10pax) so if you donโ€™t reach before 6pm on a weekend, be expected to queue queue queue!

$12.90-$14.90 solid beef don ๐Ÿš

Pros:
1. Donโ€™t be deceived. The bowl is HUGE. Like an actual rice bowl size.
2. Fast & intimate service
3. Chawanmushi is on the house
4. Each bowl comes with glass noodles + tofu + cabbage so you donโ€™t feel that crazy meat overload
5. If your tastebuds spoiled, you can just get the pork instead of the beef which is $2 cheaper and tastes equally good

Cons:
Queue is very. Very. Long. No reservations allowed so just be prepared to wait since the place holds 8 ish pax at max.

Offering only a few items on the menu, Keisuke always surprised us with various type of Japanese foods.

What interesting here was the beef are prepared in front of you, before serving to you. So you could choose how you want your beef to be cooked.

The meal also comes with a chawanmushi and boiled egg for you to put on top of your beef. Thereโ€™s also sauce given in case you feel your rice bowl too dry.

๐Ÿค”: Was surprised to find myself enjoying this more than the beef sukiyaki don ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Have significantly lesser pork slices compared to the beef don, but the chef did tell us beforehand

๐Ÿ’ต: $14.90

๐Ÿค”: I love this.... Asked for beef to be cooked medium rare and that was exactly what we got! Slightly sweeter than I'd like, but beef sukiyakis are usually that way so ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Wanted to try this Keisuke concept since it opened, and so glad I finally managed to pop down! I love the concept, where you sit at a cosy counter and they cook the thinly sliced beef and assemble this delicious bowl in front of you. Also, the service is super friendly and impeccable, along with the spot-on decor and ambience.

I opted for the cheaper of the two beef dons on the menu. ($14.90). The bowl consists of Koshihikari rice decorated with 110grams of beef, shimeiji mushroom, tofu, glass noodles, leeks and spring onions. The beef is done to a blushing medium rare. In addition, you get an onsen egg (with a beautiful bright orange yolk), miso soup, mini chawanmushi and access to free flow pickles and ginger. For the price it's such a steal. They also pour the Sukiyaki beef juices into a little sauce dish at the side so you can pour over your rice as you wish to flavor it.

The beef is so tender, sweet and delicious, but not too fatty. Goes beautifully with the fluffy rice. The egg also was a stunner with that delicious creamy yolk. Would definitely drop by again, especially with its proximity to my gym. ๐Ÿ˜

Affordable and quality donburi thatโ€™s cooked to order and prepared right in front of you. Thereโ€™s both pork and beef sukiyaki don available. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅฉ

The beef sukiyaki don is a marriage between beef sukiyaki and gyudon. One can choose from two choices of a 120g serving of beef - US Prime Beef ($14.90++) and Kagoshima Kuroge Wagyu A4 ($29.90++). Top ups are available.

What else is in the bowl? Koshihikari rice, sukiyaki sauce, shimeji mushrooms, tofu braised in sukiyaki and shirataki.

Iโ€™m a sucker for wagyu. Although both the standard US Prime and Kagoshima wagyu versions are prepared the same way and have the same ingredients, I must say that the wagyu version wins hands down. The marbling, the tenderness, the flavour does bring the best out of this humble bowl.

How does this stack up with the numerous Keisuke concepts out there? It certainly lived up to my expectations and Iโ€™d recommend it as a place for a quick beef bowl fix without breaking your bank account.
