Nestled on the edge of the CBD is a casual chic restaurant that serves up dang good beef bowls — perfect for business luncheons or dates. The 4-course Set Menu begins with sashimi-grade Hokkaido oysters dressed in mentaiko sauce and aged shoyu (you could trade this for Truffle Fries or Salmon Sashimi if you wish), followed by Torched Mentaiko Scallops. The highlight of this #BurppleBeyond exclusive set ($59 for 2 pax) is the Wagyu Sukiyaki Gyudon, where tender, juicy beef slices are torched to a nice char. For a $7 upgrade, get the Mentaiko Beef Bowl where your beef will come slathered in a creamy mentaiko sauce.
