Tried out Hanare’s refreshed menu for their Dinner Set for 2! We started off with this platter of seasonal sashimi of 3 kinds. They were sliced to the perfect thickness and were superbly fresh.

If you’re in town for dinner now, check out Uya - they are running a 10-60% off promo for their unagi sets just for today (23 July 2022), all determined by your luck by throwing their dice 🤪 Saw so many people throw a 6, which got them them the max 60% off!

Their Signature Hitsumabushi comes in medium / large size, both paired with pickles, condiments, dashi broth and soup for you to enjoy in different ways. I liked how they do their sauce less sweet so it doesn’t mask the unagi, but would have also preferred a stronger char. You will be a fan of this if you like your unagi grilled to a more light crisp with a subtle smokiness.

Menya Kokoro now has their noodles freshly made in-house using 100% whole grain wheat flour imported from Japan. The result is these thick noodles with a super distinct chew.

They’ve launched seasonal Tsukesoba bowls of 3 flavours available till end July: Original, Spicy and Mentai. Like tsukemen, the chilled noodles are served separately from a bowl of hot dipping sauce. The original broth is a savoury mix of a thick tonkotsu broth base, mackerel fish powder and spring onions, while the spicy version has additional homemade spicy oil that leaves a slight numbing mouthfeel.

Loved the texture of the noodles but they’re filling and heavy in flavour, so share with a friend to switch it up!

Didn’t get to try this because I don’t take beef, but this is one of their four available sandos on the menu. It has slices of braised wagyu beef, chives, red onions, cabbage, and an onsen egg served on toasted brioche.

I forgot how filling a meal at Keisuke Grill can get 😂 Between the two mackerels, the dried atka mackerel is a lot more bony, but also way more flavourful. The set comes with rice, an onsen egg and miso soup, on top of the complimentary free flow salad bar.

Sides that I always go back for more at the salad bar are their hijiki salad with edamame and the potato salad. I probably can leave full just by having these 2 things!

This was better than we expected! Stock used here was the more strongly seasoned sort and it came with crab stick, mushroom and a prawn. Pretty smooth.

Thankful for the staycay break this weekend and we’re back with our staycay staple from Donki woohoo. This time round, we picked up the salmon sushi, maguro maki, hirame sashimi and amaebi. So satisfying!

Salmon avocado maki topped with spicy mayo. Similar to the chirashi bowls we had, unfortunately thought the portion here was quite small too. The mayo is pretty salty on its own, so you can skip on the soy sauce for this.

There’s Burpple Beyond here for 1 for 1 of their donburi bowls.

Tried out the chirashi bowls here at the newly opened Xchange Chirashi, located just opposite Pasir Panjang Food Centre. While the sashimi slices were decently fresh and sliced quite thick, definitely wished the portions were muchhh bigger considering its original steep price tag - we found the rice layer that was topped with furikake beneath too thin. Would be better too if there was more of a variety of slices!

We had these 1 for 1 with Burpple Beyond and the deal applies to all the donburis on their menu - each of the bowl comes with a side of miso soup.

Huat ah everyone! Thank you @teppeisyokudo for the early CNY lohei - this is the first for our family this year.

This sashimi lohei is made with salmon, hotate, swordfish, tuna and ikura, on strips of white radish and carrot + Teppei’s Kaisen sauce to drizzle on top. Would have loved a lot more touches of sweetness here so there’s more of a refreshing balance instead of the majority savoury notes, but otherwise the sashimi were fresh.

For our other bowl, we had the Aburi Chirashi Don that had torched cubes sashimi topped with ikura. Likewise, the sashimi cubes were fresh and came in a generous portion. Saw a few reviews that mentioned about their rice, but thankfully, we had well cooked ones in ours. In comparison to the Truffle Chirashi Don ($15.90), flavours are more mellow here without additional seasoning, so you’d get the original sashimi flavours and that touch of smokiness. This also came served with a bowl of miso soup and salad.

Value for money bowls from Chirashizushi Shou - their dons all come served with a bowl of miso soup and salad. They have been here in Bukit Timah Plaza for a while now and we’ve finally popped by to try. Thumbs up to their generosity of fresh sashimi chunks that were of very decent quality. I especially enjoyed the number of baby scallops they included here (many places usually don’t include that many). Liked that the sauce mix wasn’t too salty and the truffle was just nice, and didn’t over power the sashimi flavours. Only gripe was that the prawn was a little over cooked, and even though there was tako stated on the menu for this, we didn’t find any.

Heard that they usually have a long queue, but we got there just riiiiight before their last order and got to skip that! Will be back to try more - their space is next to Myung Ga II, which has great homely Korean food.
