The thickly sliced wagyu beef was grilled to perfection, very well charred with a tinge of smokiness. Mix in the onsen egg to coat fluffy rice along with the signature glaze on the beef. Very legit and flavorful! No need for the truffle or mentaiko sauce really 😋

Deliciously addictive rich bowl. Got to love the kick from the spicy mentaiko sauce! Goes really well with the chunks of fresh salmon. Everything was in perfect harmony, the salmon, the scallions, the ebiko and the ikura. Yum!

Generous portion of thick salmon chunks infused with fragrant Japanese goma oil and secret blend shoyu, topped with chili padi for that kick and crispy garlic bits for a nice crunch giving that burst of flavor. No matter way to enjoy this than with the glossy pearl rice from Niigata Koshihikari.

Redeem 1-1 deals with Burpple beyond!

Power through that midweek slump with this delightful bowl!

Good news is, you can use Burpple Beyond and enjoy 1-1 deal for this and other bowls (except the Signature wagyu Beef don with foie gras)!!

Was blown away by the explosive umami flavors with these perfectly scorched sliced premium beef. Loved that they were lean yet tender at the same time. And so generous too! 😁

To sweeten the deal, the beautiful garlicky sauce on the beef, along with the black truffle aroma and the aftermath of the yolk porn on the flavored pearl rice blend from Niigata Koshihikari (popular for its excellent balance of sweetness, stickiness and glossiness in its taste and appearance), this bowl is really a MUST TRY! The small portion is good enough for me. If you’re famished, go for the bigger portion [$21.90].

The only downside of this place for me was that there are no side dishes you can order to share if you’re feeling peckish or greedy.

New outlet on the 4th floor of one raffles place, next to three cups coffee.

Got the made to order signature kaisen don, which comes with rice or salad or you also have the option to get both! For my bowl, I omitted the pickled ginger and asked for EXTRA wasabi! Option to get the kaisen in 2 more different sizes: Small - $12.90
Large - $19.90

In this bowl, you will get chunks of salmon, maguro, swordfish, mini hotate, squid, ikura. I like the marinade they use with the fish, which is not too heavy or salty, just enough to bring out the sweetness & freshness of the fish. Some pieces of fish were rather flimsy though. If i were to compare this with teppei’s kaisen don and i must say that I’m not as satisfied with this. Only thing that i like better here is the sushi rice. Oh, and the free flow tea leaf egg of course!

Kei kaisendon unique speciality is to maximize one’s enjoyment with their bowls in 4 different ways.
Method 1: enjoy the fresh seafood/fish with shoyu & wasabi
Method 2: mix mayo & chili powder and blend into the bowl
Method 3: after finishing half the don, pour sakurai chicken soup ($1.90) into the bowl and enjoy as porridge
Method 4: take their special nori seaweed ($1.50 for 2pcs) with spoonful of rice & fish, wrap into rolls

Comes with two slices of bluefin tuna belly and minced otoro. Otoro was slightly over minced, resulting in a mushy texture. But loved the addition of wakame and jellyfish to balance the textures and flavors of the bowl. Best part of the meal was the truffle infused rice! Which came as a surprise. No wonder the entire shop smells of truffle when you walk in ☺️ loved how subtle the truffle scent & flavor is on the rice which is tossed also with ebiko & finely chopped mushroom. Yum!!!

Adding to the extensive portfolio of Les Amis Group is this modern sumiyaki, which emphasizes in the art of grilling. The quality of ingredients is the main draw of this place as most of the sourcing if done selectively from different prefectures across Japan.

********

The surface of the tofu was grilled to perfection with a slight crisp. When you bite into it, the melt-in-mouth creamy smooth interior flows right out with no restraint. The tofu comes with two types of miso sauce, the original miso and Aichi red miso.

********

The making of miso is an art. Hundreds of varieties of this classic Japanese staple can be found across the country. The taste, aroma, and appearance of miso all vary by region and season. Each miso’s fermentation and aging process involves a multitude if factors from the type of koji used, the cooking technique, the temperature, duration of fermentation to the fermenting vessel, which all results in variances of taste, colour and texture. One of the ways to categorize miso is by the colour. In general, the longer the miso is fermented, the saltier it gets.

********

Though the original miso has a milder and more delicate taste, it does not compromise in enhancing the flavor profile of the dish any less. On the other hand, the red miso is definitely bolder and richer, with a surprisingly sweet finish. Enjoyed this dish thoroughly! 😋

Cold somen tossed with confit egg yolk & shio konbu, topped with truffle molecues & sakura ebi

Super value for money dish! The somen was cooked perfectly and well seasoned, loved that light hint of truffle and the crunch from the ebi 😋

Roasted “sous vide” beef short ribs with
Japanese pumpkin puree & baby rainbow carrots 🥕

Beef was tender and well cooked, slightly fatty.

Didn’t quite enjoy or appreciate the accompaniments of the dish though. The raw shredded rainbow carrots tasted just like the orange ones, neither did they provide any interesting textures or contributed to the flavor profile of the dish.. pumpkin purée was rather bland and underwhelming..

Grilled raclette cheese with new potato.

Underwhelming dish. Cheese hardened and stiffened up when it got to us. ☹️

My memories of raclette have always been fond when I was had it during a raclette party during exchange days in France. And this did not come close to that taste I reminisce..
