Well-simmered in an umami rich soy sauce-dashi based stock, Yatagarasu Yakitori’s Oyako-Don ($12.80) was so satisfying. As one of the 4 donburi available during lunch, it was a slightly wetter rendition but no doubt a classic soul food. Hearty and comforting, the bowl was served pipping hot and pleasantly savoury. Love that it isn't sweet like some you get elsewhere and the egg is cooked to just about the right consistency like soft egg curds. The chunks of chicken sitting above the plump pearly white rice were also nicely marinated. And to fully enjoy the item, I would recommend giving it a good mix before tucking in as the oozy raw egg yolk counters bit of the richness and adds a nice creaminess.
