The Burpple set consists of 2 small-sized dons, 3 chicken skewers, 2 green tea, 2 miso soup and 2 salad. The chicken skewers were doused with sweet teriyaki sauce and were nothing to shout about. The salad, served with sweet sesame sauce (presumably from Kewpie), was nothing special too. The miso soup on the other hand had salmon pieces, kelp and tofu.

For the unagi don, the grilled eel was tender and the sauce offered a hint of sweetness that complimented the dish well. Would say that for the amount of unagi given, the price of the Burpple set was pretty worth! Apart from the fish, chewy wakame seaweed and pickled daikon pieces were also served on the side to cleanse your palette from the richness of the other ingredients. I also enjoyed breaking the onsen egg apart to have the egg yolk coat the rice grains, which offered a nice creaminess that went well with the chewy sushi rice. Apart from the onsen egg, the don also came with a small piece of tamagoyaki topped with a generous serving of mentaiko sauce. For lovers of mentaiko, consider getting the grilled salmon don in which the salmon slice would also be similarly topped with the mentaiko sauce. On the other hand, if you enjoy sashimi, the signature don is the one to go for, where a generous serving of salmon and tuna cubes, clams and fish roe would be sitting above the sushi rice served with a slice of seaweed that you can use to make a hand roll for yourself.

Have visited several Kei Kaisendon outlets lately and they did not disappoint! We also realize that they’re expanding rather quickly, with an outlet at Jewel too.
