Value for money portions and extremely friendly staff! Props to the friendly chef who was very active and honest with his recommendations. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

This inconspicuous Japanese restaurant tucked away in the less frequented King Albert Park mall proved to be a hidden gem!

If you were to just get one thing from here, the ๐˜๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ค๐ฎ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’) is a must-try. The thin slices of Angus beef were perfectly tender and juicy as they absorbed the delicious yakiniku sauce ๐Ÿคค. The meat was accompanied by caramelised onions that brought a touch of sweetness, suitably finished off with a gooey onsen egg ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I also really love the rice they used, it was plump and soft, good quality Japanese rice. Every grain was substantially coated in the sauce, ensuring that you wonโ€™t end up with plain olโ€™ white rice at the end of your meal.

The ๐Š๐š๐ญ๐ฌ๐ฎ ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“) came with a generous portion of plump slices of meat. I loved that the katsu wasnโ€™t greasy, it had a light feel and was not dry in the slightest! With the addition of butter in their curry, it weighed heavily on the sweet and creamy side, absent of any spicy kick. The egg was a nice touch, but I think that the curry still lacked a depth in flavour ๐Ÿ˜”. However, the quality of the meat does help save the dish from the bog-standard.

Fried with less oil, the batter of their tempura is light and still super crispy, removing itself from the oily and greasy feeling youโ€™d usually associate with tempura. The ๐„๐›๐ข ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’) did just that, with the delicious vegetable and ebi prawn encased in the light crispy batter.

We ordered the 1 for 1 โ€œYuzu Tsu Tori Donโ€ ($16). Only takeaway was allowed. When we finally opened our boxes, we were mildly surprised. We double checked that our order was not swapped with a Zi Char customerโ€™s. The supposed don looked exactly like a zichar-style sweet and sour chicken.

Then we had a โ€˜See what you did thereโ€™ moment. Since it was a chicken dish paired with rice, and had a somewhat tangy flavour, it qualified as โ€˜Yuzu tsu tori donโ€™ (tori ~ bird). We give them 11/10 for linguistic sophistry. However, unless the restaurant is toying with a zichar fusion concept by night (which did not seem so from all the other menu items), we give this dish 1.1/10.

As sweet and sour chicken, it might score higher although there are probably better and cheaper zichar stalls in the beauty world vicinity.

For the original given price of $16 (if there was no 1-for-1), the portion sizing is very lacklustre as can be seen by the small amounts of chicken. Furthermore, there wasnโ€™t a lot of sauce so it was very dry :( Very disappointed! Expected much better.

A hidden Japanese restaurant inside kap Mall, serving an intensive Japanese cuisine on the menu; from ramen to donburi.

I really enjoy their curry which is tasty and wasnโ€™t spicy. Their ebi was crispy and wasnโ€™t oily at all. $16

Burpple Beyond is available here for another selection.

Head to this casual eatery in King Albert Park for comforting Japanese food. Use this deal to tuck into the off-menu, exclusive Yuzu Tsu Tori Don, and a Pokka drink of choice. Other noteworthy dishes include the Japanese Curry Rice ($19) served with a generous slab of perfectly crisp Hokkaido snow pork.
