From Donya Japanese Cuisine situated within a coffeeshop at Blk 126 Toa Payoh Lorong 1; the block just beside the market that houses Chey Sua Carrot Cake and just a short walk away from Creamier (yes, I am just saying it's like an all-in-one package whenever I am here). Serving up affordable Japanese fare and "near-restaurant" quality, expect rice bowls typical of what is usually served in Japanese stalls at coffeeshops and a few Maki dishes.

Being their signature Maki, the Donya Maki is essentially a California Roll topped with salmon instead of Ebiko, drizzled in their signature house-made sauce which is essentially a Tama Miso sauce and then flame-torched. The Tama Miso sauce is almost like a creamier, mellow version of a hybrid of Mayonnaise and Salted Egg sauce; very subtly savoury from the Miso though generally creamy overall. The flame-torched salmon carries that Aburi feel very nicely; rather smoky while the Maki comes packed decently tight with crab stick and cucumber to give the crunch. Coming in four pieces for $5.80, it's actual pretty good an option for those who are living in the area.
