Went for my usual fix of salmon mentai don! Love how crispy the salmon skin is, and how the saltiness of the mentai compliments the the sauce poured over the rice! The sauce can get a little salty, but you can always request for less sauce. I also like how they torched the mentai to give it a smoky flavour. Don comes with a free miso soup, great to finish the don with!

Made use of my burpple one for one deal! 👍🏻Decided to swop the usual rice for soba, was disappointed to note that the soba break easily and it was hard to pick up using the chopsticks. My partner had the rice and also note that the rice used is normal rice instead of pearl rice.

Tendon was quite tasty tho! The spicy sauce gives a great kick to the overall taste. As for the chawanmushi, it is on the bland side, would have much preferred addition of soya sauce.

Overall, I might be back to try their other offerings but I will give the tendon a miss next time!

Went straight for the kintan buffet! Enjoyed the gyutan (beef tongue) and beef slices thoroughly. Their chawanmushi packs a punch and I devoured 2 cups during the buffet. The time limit is 90min, of which the first 70 min can be used to order food. As for the remaining 20 min, you can’t order any more food. You can still take the food from their cooked food and salad bars. I enjoyed the pork miso soup as well! Their staff was attentive and kept clearing the empty plates. You can also request to change the grill when it gets too charred.

Worth trying! A little pricey but good for special occasions!

Tried the super salmon don, consisting of avocado salmon, salmon cubes and salmon slices. Got the set, which comes with a side and a drink. I choose the fried chicken for side, whereas my companion chose gyoza. For drinks, we chose cold green tea. If you are willing to spend a little more, can top a few dollars for more salmon, or for juices and soft drinks.

They were quite generous with the avocado salmon and salmon cubes, but there were only 2 salmon slices. So was a little disappointed by the quantity. But overall still filling and I couldn’t finish the rice. Would be better if there’s miso soup to pair it off! The gyoza and fried chicken was really juicy and tasty as well! I personally felt that the chicken outshone the don itself haha. The staff were friendly as well, refilling our drinks whenever they saw it ran out.

Overall, a pretty decent meal! We paid around $33 for 2 pax and for a full meal with drinks. Would like to try their ramen next time! 😋
