I love this modern take on the Korean bibimbap.
The hearty salad is built around a large piece of smoky bincho-grilled salmon that’s done so beautifully the flesh falls smoothly away in thick moist flakes. It is planted on a mound of flavourful hijiki seaweed rice and is surrounded on all sides by as many Korean “banchan” (assorted pickled/marinated vegetables) as Jon Snow was by White Walkers (ok, that may be an exaggeration 😆). Anyway, the bold punch of savoury-sweet “gochujang” sauce, sesame seeds and chilli guarantees this is as far from meek and mild as a salad can possibly get.
If you are in the MBS area and fancy escaping for a solo or quick lunch at the breezy and relaxed Bar & Lounge area of @spagosingapore, I think this is a pretty darn perfect choice.

Answer: You now get 3 types of Wagyu to choose from, namely Australian Wagyu MB8 ($98++), Kagoshima A4 Tenderloin ($148++) and Nagasaki A5 Striploin ($158++).
Whichever beef is chosen, it is grilled over charcoal then sliced into neat pieces that are then arranged on a bowl of Japanese rice. The other lavish toppings alongside the smoky beef are large cubes of pan-fried foie gras, uni, caviar, ikura and freshly shaved black truffle. An onsen egg and a drizzle of truffle oil add the finishing touch to this bowl of ultra decadence.

The 1-for-1 Set Meal with Burpple Beyond is excellent value for money (it costs only $59++ for 2 pax instead of $118++), and includes huge, sashimi-grade Hokkaido oysters dressed in mentaiko sauce and aged shoyu to start. This is followed by an appetiser of Torched Mentaiko Scallops before the main course of Wagyu Sukiyaki Gyu Don is served.
However, if you like a chunkier mouthfeel for meat, I suggest upgrading for a few dollars more, to one of their Signature Torched Wagyu Beef Bowls. The preparation ensures a nice char on the outside while retaining the all-important juicy tenderness within.
The Origjnal suits me very well as I love tasting the beef in all its glory of but the Mentaiko sauce-topped one is ideal for those who enjoy a rich and umami creaminess with theirs.

The finely-sliced Wagyu beef, cooked in a tasty teriyaki sauce, and those big, creamy chunks of foie gras made this rice bowl a hit with all of us.
I had actually ordered a few portions of it to share amongst my group as I had selected many other dishes as well. But more than half of them said they would return to have a whole bowl of it to themselves. I couldn’t agree more.

My first ever visit here resulted in big smiles due to two reasons.
Number one: the Gyu Don we had was really tasty. The thinly sliced beef laid on top of the rice had been sautéed with enoki mushrooms and onions in a lip-smacking sauce till nice and tender. An onsen egg, always a welcome sight, simultaneously boosted the level of attractiveness and enjoyment. Ditto the crispy golden slices of garlic.
Reason number two: As well-priced as it is at $13.90 originally, with #burpplebeyond’s 1-for-1 deal, this Gyu Don becomes ridiculously good value.
All I can say is I’m so glad this casual Japanese restaurant has two outlets in Singapore right now where you can savour this - they’re located at JEM and Bugis Junction shopping malls.
And by the way, in case you’re thinking about doing some Christmas shopping, I’d like to suggest a little visit to the NEW “Burpple Beyond Online Gift Shop”.
Everyone you care about deserves to enjoy good meals in a smarter way all year round (at over 300 merchants to be specific). Or for a 3-month period. Your choice 😊.

Grain and salad bowls are always a popular choice with the CBD crowd. So naturally, Head Chef Bertram decided to come up with a few options, five in fact, to cater to different palates.
Shown above is the one with couscous. Hearty in size, this dish is bound to be more than ample for those looking for a healthy but substantial meal. In here are feta cheese, hummus, avocado, olives, pine nuts and Japanese cucumber. The dressing used to toss the couscous is a red wine shoyu dressing which is on the light side.

A sure-win choice from the new menu at @baomakers is the Teriyaki Beef Steak Rice Bowl.
Arranged neatly over a mound of Japanese rice are tender pieces of grilled Australian striploin sliced thick enough for a very satisfying mouthfeel. I very much like that the marinade, a house blend teriyaki sauce, isn’t too sweet either.
Make sure to mix the onsen egg in with the soft rice before you dig in because that doubles up the oishii-ness in an instant.

Not that the U.S. Prime Beef isn’t tasty because it is, but there’s a tad more chewiness and obvious beefy flavour in that. At $13.90++ a bowl, it definitely qualifies as an extremely good value meal too.
If you like your beef as melt-in-the-mouth as possible, the Kiwami Wagyu Yonezawa A4 should be your pick. At $29.90++, I assure you it’s still worth paying because the serving of meat is generous and once cooked in the sweetish sukiyaki sauce, is heaped on Koshihikari rice from Japan that’s been cooked in a special two-lid style claypot.
Accompaniments to round this off to a set meal includes a miso soup, a sesame tofu, an onsen egg and the restaurant’s two signature housemade pickles.

This is an ideal bowl for those of you who love tempura and chilli crab because it has a large, crunchy battered fish fillet and a softshell crab covered in a housemade sweet, spicy and slightly tangy sauce. The base is a mix of Japanese Akitomachi and brown rice which makes for a substantial meal.

As “Ninja Bowl” turns two, they are celebrating their anniversary by launching new and more affordably priced Ninja Bowls, brunch items and (due to very heavy demand) pastas.
Bossman Darren told me that he and his wife Cecilia (ladyboss and Culinary Director) love to travel for inspiration. They draw ideas for flavours and techniques from the various restaurants, Michelin starred ones included, they’ve visited, then re-interpret them into hearty cafe food of quality. Based on what we were served today, I think they have done very well and also demonstrated a keen understanding of their local customers’ preferences.
Pictured above is my favourite dish of the four we tried and it happens to be Darren’s too. Named the “Tamago Sandwich”, it has an airy-light, flaky and buttery croissant filled with a melted cheese-topped tamago egg that’s unbelievably soft. Served with that is Japanese curry minced beef and an onsen egg. Super oishii especially when I ate all the components together.

If you want cafe food but done with an Asian slant, let me present to you the “Boufe Breakfast Don”, a rice bowl to satisfy that criteria.
Upon the base of Japanese rice is half of a miso-glazed grilled avocado, chunky pieces of mustard-squiggled “sio bak” (roasted pork belly) complete with a killer crunchy skin, a dry-ish spicy dried shrimp sambal and sous vide egg. As you can tell, it is a mash-up of assorted Asian tastiness. Eat the components separately or try mixing and matching them to find a combo to suit your tastebuds.

The bowl this comes in makes the serving size appear small but because all the toppings are compacted together, you‘ll realise your belly is actually full after you’re done with it.
I was not expecting the beef to be that tender or well seasoned either but it was.

Can't cook to save my life but boy, can I eat! 😄 (I pay for all my meals unless otherwise stated)
