If you love a good bowl of sashimi donburi, Umi Nami is the place to go!

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I managed to get these delicious & fresh sashimi bowls for half the price!

Each bowl comes with a bowl of warm Japanese rice, mixed with a light dose of vinegar, before being topped with fresh sashimi.

The Aburi Scallop and Salmon is a perfect alternative if raw fish is not your thing. The torched seafood comes with bits of black truffle, topped with truffle oil. This brings out the aroma of the oil, and just made the don a whole lot tastier!

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I managed to get these delicious & fresh sashimi bowls for half the price!

We ordered the Salmon Ikura Don ($25), Aburi Scallop Salmon Don ($17) & Aburi Scallop Mekaijiki Don ($24) to share!

Each bowl comes with a bowl of warm Japanese rice, mixed with a light dose of vinegar, before being topped with fresh sashimi. The ikura were like little pops of saltiness from the sea, mixed together with the sourness of the rice and freshness of the Salmon works perfectly together.

One of the most often dishes around here, the Yaki Gyu Tan is something that one would order (usually) at a Izakaya!

I’m not usually a huge fan of beef tongue, but will usually give it go as most of the ones I’ve tried thus far have been pretty good.

Unfortunately, the pieces were a mix of hit & misses; with some bits crunchy (exactly how it should be), which some tough & chewy. Perhaps they were having a bad day as it was a crazy busy Friday evening. Better luck next time.

In celebration of their first anniversary, Unagi Ichinoji is celebrating with two special limited-time-only dishes!

One of the specials would be the Ichinoji Mixed Box ($36.80)! It comes packed with all things good; their signature unagi, fresh kaisen-don (Tuna, Salmon & Hamachi), charcoal-grilled A5 Wagyu, ikura & shredded tamago in a traditional shokado bento.

Every mouthful was a combination of salty burst of ikura, melt-in-your mouth meats, crunchy bits of charred skin of the unagi & fresh bites of sashimi.

Get your hands on this box from now till 20 May! While you’re there, get a $20 voucher for a return trip & have it all over again!

Thank you @brandcellar for the invite!

Mixing Japanese & European cuisine, Gake is a space with a modern take on your usual Japanese cuisine.

Apart from the usual omakase, you do get a variety of mains and sides that you can choose from, especially if you prefer getting to decide your own accord.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, they offer one for one rice / noodles dishes, so I managed to get my Ika “Kuro” Meshi for free!

It’s served in a iron cast pan, kinda like a paella, but instead of your arborio rice, you have koshikari rice, mixed with Japanese squid, squid ink, chorizo and crustacean stock. The end result, an extremely flavourful pan of fried Japanese rice! With the help of a wedge of lime, it helps to cut through the creamy and rich seafood stock and lightening it up.

To snack with their happy hour offer ($10++ Chita Whisky Highball or Roku Gin & Tonic), have a go at their “Truffle” Edamame. White truffle infused edamame is being tossed with furikake, giving you a finger-licking, nose-tingling, palatable bowl of green soy beans; the perfect pairing to your Japanese booze.

Spring is here! & what better way to celebrate with @kohaku.tempura’s Spring Tendon ($18++)!

What sets their Spring Tendon apart from the usuals is that their special items have a tempura batter made with dry Sakura ebi, which gives it a slight hint of pink & a tinge of salt.

Apart from the unique batter, they have seasonal ingredients which includes the tilefish (which they left the skin & scales on!), white asparagus, bamboo shoots, pickled sakura leaf & my favourite, tamagoyaki!

Yes you’ve heard that right! They’ve decided to tempura tamagoyaki & it’s amazing. It’s still sweet & soft on the inside, but salty & crunchy on the outside. So good, you have to try it yourself.

Apart from that, you still get the usual staples of chicken breast, prawn and mushroom tempura! All of these is topped with mentaiko mayo, together with its usual spicy sauces!

Valid only for 3 months, till the end of May, this seasonal favourite can be found at all three Kohaku Tendon outlets!

Thank you @brandcellar for the lovely invite! 😊😊

The weekends are here! & what better way to celebrate but with an offer?

Unagi Ichinoji Dining recently released new items to their menu & one of them is on offer!

What’s on offer is their newest dish, the Unagi Kaisen Hitsumabushi Set ($33.80), which comes with freshly grilled unagi served atop a kaisen-don!

Popular for its unagi hitsumabushi, adding the chopped assortments of sashimi adds another texture to this dish, which makes it pretty unique.

Similar to all hitsumabushi, you get to have this set 4 ways; so choose wisely!

As mentioned, the special promotion is as follows; enjoy 50% off your second unagi kaisen hitsumabushi set, valid till 31st March 2019, only at Eat at Seven (Suntec)!

Thank you @brandcellar for the invite 😊

Lovers of Japanese food, here’s the best of both worlds!

Unagi Ichinoji Dining has come up with their new menu mainstay and it’s an amazing combination of unagi and kaisen don, but in the form of hitsumabushi!

Hitsumabushi is a style of eating, whereby there are three ways of experiencing the dish! First, you divide the bowl into 4 portions.

The first portion is to enjoy it as it is, where you savour the grilled unagi and fresh sashimi on its own.

To the second portion, add in nori (seaweed), wasabi and chopped green onions to enhance the flavour.

To the next portion, add in clear dashi broth to your rice, kinda like porridge before enjoying it!

And for the last, see which you preferred and have it in that manner!

A couple more hours and the weekend is here! 🎉

Treat yourself to a good meal (cause why not) at @unagiyaichinoji where you get the best of charcoal grilled unagi and A5 wagyu! 🤤

Freshly grilled unagi is served atop a warm bento of steamed fluffy Japanese rice, paired with grilled melt in your mouth A5 wagyu, and you’ve got yourself a party in your mouth 😍

Thank you @brandcellar for inviting us over!

Decided to pop for a visit since we were in the east to pick my sister up from the airport! & there’s no better way than a hot bowl of ramen to comfort you before the work week begins again.

The Gyu Niku Ramen came with generous slices of beef with bouncy ramen and a lightly salted shoyu broth. The saltiness of the broth added some flavour to the well-cooked slices of beef, which ends up becoming a comforting bowl of ramen.

My mum had the Shoyu Char Siew Ramen, which comes with well-marinated, fatty slices of char siew in Shoyu broth. Even though it was based on the same broth, the meats have changed the saltiness of the broth, adding an extra oomph to the dish.

Available under #burpplebeyond, you could decide between having 1 for 1 Ramen or 1 for 1 Don! So each ramen comes up to $8.90++ each!

items available in this seasonal menu would be their Black Pepper Gyutan ($8 - Beef Tongue) and Iwashi Ume Ni ($9 - Sardines). Dishes that are deemed homely to all Japanese, this comfort food dishes can simply be eaten on their own, or with a hot pipping scoop of Japanese rice.

Specials for their New Winter Menu!

Featuring their Zuwaigani Kushi ($4 - Snow Crab Leg), Karei Kushi ($2 - Spicy Flounder) and Shiro Negi Kushi ($1.50 - Leek). These items are priced affordably & tastes amazingly fresh! What I love about their kushikatsu is that it’s not oily and are still crispy even after leaving them out for abit.
