At first glance, what caught my eye was the thick and chunky assortment of cubed sashimi and the generous portion of fish!

The egg yolk was not just for aesthetic purposes, but enhance the texture when mixed well with the sushi rice, making every bite silky and smooth. The chilli padi also adds a spicy kick to it.

Freshness is a priority for sashimi, and this humble eatery nailed it. There were no fishy smell and taste, which was a good sign.

Some Japanese restaurants overdo it with the marination of the fish but the flavour was balanced in this Chirashi Don and not too over-powering. If you prefer a stronger flavour for your Chirashi Don, you can always ask for soya sauce at the side but I do not recommend putting too much as it covers the clean flavours of the fresh fish.

The Spicy Chirashi Don also comes with a salad and miso soup at the side. For those with a bigger appetite, do order their Tamago Mentaiko ($3.90) which was delicious too. Get their unsweetened iced green tea ($1.50) that is refillable to cleanse your palate between bites.

A delightful lunch at a hidden gem.
