A Japanese-Hawaiian fusion donburi located at a shopping mall teeming with office working lunch goers. After seeing my colleague eating this for multiple meals, I had to try once to find out what the fuss was about. The bowl was filled with raw ingredients that are typically good for the soul - sashimi, avocado, roe - minus the rice, it would have made for a real paleo meal. The avocado + rice + raw fish was a surprisingly okay combination - I had a nice time with this dish while catching up with an old friend.

Recommended by my sister, a very cosy restaurant tucked away in an unassuming spot at Boat Quay. I had the tempura donburi and it came in a huge portion. The dish was very generous with its tempura prawns (huge!!). I wasn’t able to finish the meal but am always happy to get my money’s worth.

Interesting concept where payment kiosks are set up for order and digital payment. I can sit down and wait for my queue number instead of waiting in line. However the store tender of the Japanese store really irked me - seems like her only job is to prepare the meals and leave it on the countertop. I tried to call her a few times to ask which bowl of miso was mine and there was no reply as she was in the kitchen. Salmon was pathetically thin, and rice was DRY and HARD. But beef portion was generous. Based on overall quality of food and shoddy customer service I would not visit again.

Horrible food. Parts of salmon were black and clearly wasn’t fresh. Salmon portions were very tiny in comparison to photos in menu. Rice portion too large. Service was terrible as well, waited 15 mins to be seated despite having seats inside and the waiters kept interrupting to clear our bowls. 0/5

As per recommendation by a korean colleague. Broth is salty as expected, portion of noodles is humongous, but amount of ingredients is quite tiny. Obviously the noodles and broth are the stars here. Noodles are to be dipped in broth before consumption. A very very filling meal.
