Hotate (Scallop) with Ikura Don ($28.80)
.
Newly open @DonburiKingSG located on the 3rd floor of the new Paya Lebar Quarter. A cosy space of only 18 seats, the restaurant boasts a countertop seating so that you can watch your donburi being prepared. What’s great about the space is that there is finally another option for people who enjoy sashimi and people who don’t take raw to head to the same restaurant as this place serves both cooked food and raw fish dons.
.
My favourite don of the evening has to be the Hotate with Ikura Don. Think succulent lightly torched Japanese scallops mixed with ikura and negitoro to deliver a great umami taste with each spoonful. Tamago slices are also served together with the bowl. Although the price tag may be on the hefty side, the premium ingredients imported from Japan more than justifies this. A good side to order is their fried shisamo ($3 for 3 pieces). Lightly battered, this was just delicious and inexpensive.

Thanks @burpple for extending the invitation for this #burppleeatup and @DonburiKingsg for your warm hospitality and for hosting this event.

Sauerkraut Fish Pot
.
After Chinatownpoint’s makeover at the basement, there’s now a wide array of new food options. One of these is @qilaifengsg which serves up a rather unique fish menu comprising their own signature grass carp nicknamed Q fish for its qq texture due to their unique feeding technique when breeding the fish. My favourite dish for the evening has got to be the sauerkraut fish pot filled with a generous serving of thinly sliced fish that doesn’t disintegrate easily, a testament to the freshness of the fish used here. The soup has a mildly spicy and tangy flavour tweaked to our local palette. For spice lovers, there’s also an option for a spicier level. Aside from this soup pot, there’s also the dry version that’s the best of both worlds for people who can’t decide. The fish pot is served dry and midway, there’s also an option to add pork bone broth and order extra hotpot ingredients for a round 2! Special mention also goes to the stir fried pork intestines. Offal lovers will love this dish done in a salt and pepper style.

Yakitori Platter ($48)
.
This platter from @lecoqsg is totally suitable for people who cannot make up their minds on what to order. Best shared amongst 4, the portion here is generous to say the least. The platter comprises beef, chicken thigh and breasts, wings, cartilage, heart. Loving the char on the skewers and the slightly sweet glaze.

Yam Basket ($20)
.
Sitting majestically on a bed of crispy bee hoon is the yam basket @kekseafood , one of my childhood favourite and the big brother of the taro balls found at dim sum restaurants. A spoonful of the crisp basket with some chicken and mushrooms is just heavenly.

Duck Confit & Foie Gras ($24.90)
.
Duck confit @hungerskitchenbyarome served with truffle mash, orange, mushroom, cherry tomatoes, duck jus, broccoli and a generous slab of foie gras which is done just right. The price point is made even better with #burpplebeyond ‘s 1-for-1 deal. We went with the pan seared salmon that came with 3 pieces of salmon on a bed of brown rice risotto.

Tonkotsu Smoked Pepper Ramen ($14.90)
.
Ramen served in a bowl of mildly peppery tonkotsu broth, premium char siew and woodchip smoked minced meat from Ura Hototogisu. We tried 3 bowls of ramen with very different flavours and this was my favoufite. The soup was on a slightly saltier side and I could have done with 1 more slice of char siew.

Guilty Pleasures ($88)
.
Superb deal @kabukesg as we got 2 guilty pleasures bowl for the price of 1. It’s really everything pleasurable sitting on a bed of jap rice. Think japanese beef, ikura, onsen egg, and a generous slab of foie gras.

Toku-Jo ($22.80)
.
@tenjinsg probably serves up the best bowl of tendon in sg despite me being a fan of Tendon Kohaku for so long. The entire experience is just many notches up in terms of the decor, the lack of oily stench that lingers on the clothes, and the perfect bowl of friedfood heaven. I went with the premium bowl because why not but they also have the usual $12.80 (vegetables) and $14.80 (prawns + veg) bowls that are great to order too. Every piece of ingredient is not overfried and they serve just enough rice to complement the ingredients. My favourite pieces were the anago, fish and lava egg. The fact that I didn’t have to queue was also a huge push factor to return before this place starts to catch the crowd.

Vulcano Chicken ($48))
.
Almost every table @penangseafood ordered this classic signature. The price-point probably had a lot to do with the novelty of it all. The flame went out in seconds though. Aside from the standing cock, the pool of soup filled with clams below was slurplicious. Chicken meat was a tad dry but still had a delicious crisp skin. For easier dining, they can also remove the chicken from the stand and chop it up for you.

Premium Wagyu Buffet ($49.90/pax Lunch)
.
Nothing quite like a freeflow wagyu beef buffet @tajimayakiniku . Although this is Auzzie wagyu, the wagyu short rib was just as delish and the marbling didn’t pale in comparison to its japanese counterpart. We ordered countless trays of the short rib as it was the juiciest amongst all the meats available. Aside from wagyu, other notables were the salmon and swordfish sashimi, the iberico pork collar and the plethora of fresh seafood. The buffer deal is even sweeter with a Maybank credit card as it is 1-for-1 from mon to thurs. there’s a $3 surcharge per pax from Fri to Sun.

Tasting Menu ($80)
.
@fatbellysg has been packed with diners for quite a while and they have had a few iterations of their tasting menu together with minor price adjustments. Although it’s currently $80/pax, with #burpplebeyond , that’s the price for 2 so it’s really worth the price point!
.
We began with 2 starters and a beef bone consumé. Had a hard time picking out my fave as they were all delicious, especially the financier slathered with foie gras mousse. The next course of short rib served with potato pavé was a great prelude for the main course although I did find that the dish had a tad too much of a salt bae moment. My favourite dish is definitely the char siew served with a bah kwa sandwich. Both elements were excellent. Char siew had a nice texture and was suitably caramelized while the bread used for the bah kwa sandwich was served warm and lightly toasted. The main was a hearty portion of tri tip. The final dessert course also wowed me with a pistachio mousse served with cheery and meringue. The pistachio cream was extremely smooth and wasn’t overly sweet.
.
Thank you @fatbellysg for hosting the meal and @burpple for extending the invitation.

Curate’s 8 course Tasting menu ($198)
.
Thoroughly enjoyed the multisensory experience throughout dinner. Notables include the egg soufflé, foie gras pate, cheese platter, the pine needle sherbet and my personal favourite, the celebratory Almdudler drink made from 38 different herbs, spices, flowers and dried fruits airflown in from the Alps and handpicked by the chef’s family. Haven’t had such an enjoyable decadent meal in a while!
