Donya is definitely a good place to check out for cheap and yummy Japanese dons, especially if you are around the neighbourhood. Iโ€™ve tried the Chicken Katsu Don ($5.80) as well as the Salmon Mentai Don ($8.80) but Iโ€™m always swaying back to the classic donburi! Comes with a complimentary bowl of miso soup if you dine in! ๐Ÿ˜‰

i must say i found the rice texture didnโ€™t work well for me bc it was slightly too dry yet clumpy ๐Ÿ˜… and the mentai mayo was also more mayo than mentai in flavour! this made it slightly overpowering and jelat esp w the donburi sauce! however, they did make up for it in portion!! it was pretty generous and at its price point ($6.80) itโ€™s real decent!!

the maki was slightly overpriced ($5.80) for its tiny size but the texture of the ebiko contrasts w the creamy mentai mayo, which encompasses the rice and core filling which made a pretty yummy mouthful :~)

been here before and i think i prefer the unagi tama and donya maki!! nonetheless i think it still does the job or satisfying jap cravings and itโ€™s a notch above other jap stalls at its price point!!

Unagi Tama Don ($8.80) is my favourite from @donyasingapore with six pieces of unagi on a wet omelette. Biting into its charred and slightly crisp top gives way to sweet and fresh meat, ending with a lightly savoury aftertaste. The egg flavours most of the rice while locking in its moisture. Each layer of this donburi is delectable and each mouthful is a mix of textures, making this donburi just so comforting.
.
It may not look like much unagi, but it felt reasonable for its premium taste, as itโ€™s imported from Taiwan and Japan.

A piece of Mentai Maki ($5.80) from @donyasingapore is a sizeable mouthful that tastes so shiok. Crunchy ebiko pops in your mouth as you chew into a delicious mix of torched salmon and mentaiko sauce, with mayo coating the core of crabstick and cucumber.
.
You can watch them prepare this dish, layering fresh salmon over a large tray of maki to torch, before topping it with mentaiko sauce. The sauce crackles loudly as it chars, making it look even more enticing. There's only four pieces, but it's sufficient and satisfying for its price. ๐Ÿ˜‹

the unagi tama don ($8.80) from @donyasingapore. barely-set egg and chewy grilled unagi atop a bed of japanese rice. the unagi canโ€™t compare with the freshly killed and grilled man man unagi, but at this price point one can hardly expect that. I would come back if i were in the area and craving jap food. plus, thereโ€™s creamier nearby so can get waffles after ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

A decent "Donburi" (Japanese rice bowl) place in the hood. Raved by many food bloggers, we find a generous serving of Chicken teriyaki on top of Japanese rice and sweet & sticky soy sauce quite decent. The atmosphere is not too hectic during lunch time in Toa Payoh area. We didn't try the unagi as not a big fan of a blow torch cooking style. ๐Ÿ”ฅ Free flow for extra soy sauce & wasabi.

Affordable Japanese foods found here at Toa Payoh, just beside the hawker centre. The chicken was crispy and donโ€™t forget to grab some wasabi sauce from the counter. $6.80

$8 a bowl of Unagi Don. The flavors were on the sweet side which made it easy to eat. Couldnโ€™t taste the fattiness of the fish but expectation need adjusted as the price was pretty affordable. .

I would recommend their curry fried chicken rice and mentaiko sushi roll. Not a bad eat.

Salmon Mentai Don ($8.80) - The Japanese rice was drizzled with teriyaki sauce, and a huge slice of salmon sat on top of the rice with a crown of mentaiko.

With help from Burpple, easily spotted this jap stall at the coffee shop serving tasty and well-plated Don. The rice is moist and soft, top off with right amt of egg, onion and sauce. Standard doesnโ€™t lose out to restaurant. Overall, i give 2 thumbs up!

Only at $8.80, definitely worth heading down for a meal.

Absolutely worth it at only $8.80! Portion and taste all on point. Only open during lunch time and dinner time. Be sure to check before heading down to avoid disappointment!

Went to Braddle to check out what the hype was all about and enjoyed it โ˜บ Ordered Chicken Katsudon, Tori Karaage Curry Don, and their famous Mentai Maki. We'll definitely come back to try their Salmon Mentai Don! #burpple #donyajapanese

Chunky slices of chicken thigh meat are tender in your chew. The batter tastes salty, and is crusted with breadcrumbs. Underneath is a generous amount of sauteed onions that aren't too pungent so you won't feel jelak. Chicken Katsu Don ($5.80) is the cheapest donburi at @donyasingapore. Despite that, it was the most filling bowl we had!

Visited this recently trending japanese food stall in a coffeeshop and ordered the salmon mentai don. Pricing wise is affordable but taste wise is just alright for me, not something i will travel down all the way for. Rating: 3/5
