📍Aburi En⁣⁣ (Tanjong Pagar)
- Buta Don 豚丼🍗⁣⁣
- Onsen Egg 温泉卵🍳⁣⁣ (add-on)
- Kurobuta Hoho Don 黒豚のほほ丼🍖⁣⁣
- Asari Butter Sakamushi 浅利バタ酒蒸し🥣⁣⁣
Had the buta don and add-on an onsen egg, like the aburi taste and the sauce (not too salty)~ The slightly chewy buta meat with the oozing egg yolk just make the best match, not bad at all! Decent for the price...

Recommend the kurobuta hoho don as the meat is more tender as compared to the buta one, and the grilled taste just bring it to the next level, yum!

Damage: est $40

7 Feb’19, Thu⛅️ 大年初三🧧⁣
📍Raku Raku Japanese Dining (Stanley St)⁣
- Salmon Shioyaki サーモン塩焼🍱⁣

Like their salmon shio, better than the teriyaki one for the teriyaki sauce is too heavy/ salty...

The salmon is quite fresh and the lightly salted seasoning just let you have a taste of salmon and the freshness. The sides are subject to changes but generally nice too...

Just a side note, some times the salmon can be of smaller size (not that consistent I gathered after a few visits), but the quality/ taste of the food is consistently yummy...

Damage: $16.47 (Weekday lunch set)

📍Peace Japanese Cuisine (Beauty World)
- Chirashi Don🍱
- Maguro (Tuna)🍣
- Hotate (Scallops)🥢

The sashimi are pretty fresh and the scallops are so sweet, yummy!

The staff is friendly and more than happy to give recommendations when you have no idea which to go for...

Damage: $44.51 (in total)

📍Tanuki Raw (Orchard Central)
- Chirashi Don🍱
- Superstar Roll🍣

Needless to say, their sashimi is really fresh and definitely worth the queue and $...

Like the tempura flakes on top of the Superstar roll, the mentaiko sauce seared salmon is just so yum!!!

Super satisfying meal indeed!

Note: Go for their lunch for it’s cheaper than you order the same thing during dinner time...

Damage: $26.80 (Chirashi Don + Superstar Roll shared by 3 pax)

📍Don Don Donki (100am)

Suggest to skip their fried stuff, it’s not crunchy as I expected, like those hard to chew cold fried stuff and not at all tasty, a little waste my calories kind of feel...🍗🍖

But recommend their salmon belly sushi!!! So yum! Like as if the salmon is gonna melt in my mouth! Both the torched and teriyaki sauce salmon sushi are the hit! Go try them!🍣

Damage: $27.90

📍Unagiya Ichinoji 鰻家一の字🐟
- Hitsumabushi (XL) ひつまぶし (特盛)🍱

Tried it previously and thought of giving it a try again, sadly, it’s standard is not consistent and this meal is quite a disappointment...

Ordered the XL one, generous portion and definitely enough for 3pax, I also requested for crispier unagi (based on past experience), but it didn’t turn out as well as the pic may suggest...

The unagi is kinda soggy, not quite sure is it becos of the sauce (per the staff, maybe the chef added too much sauce, that’s why it’s not crispy on the surface), it’s kinda jelak after trying a few pcs of the unagi...

No doubt the unagi is fresh but ya, personally feel that there are better unagi rice out there and I doubt I will go back to Unagiya again...

Note: Service is quite good, no queue, the location is a little ulu...

Damage: $87.50 (includes 2 cups of green tea)

📍Unagiya Ichinoji 鰻家一の字🐟
- Hitsumabushi (S) ひつまぶし (梅)🍱

I quite like this, as compared to Man Man, this has got no queue (was there at abt 1pm) and cheaper... It also got different types of eating method (similar to Man Man’s, but cheaper), like adding dashi soup to it...

I personally like adding the soup to the rice, and eat the unagi separately to keep the crisp...haha...

While I find the fish (live fish too) at Man Man a little more crispy (maybe just my bowl), this is a very good alternative, but hope the can improvise and make the fish a little crispier...

As for the sauce, it’s less saltier, but more towards the sweet side...

Other than its location (a little ulu), all is good! :)

Don’t mind coming back again!

Damage: $22.79 (includes one hot green tea & inclusive of GST)

📍Healthy Soba Iki 粋 (One Raffles Place)🍜
- Unagi & Egg Don with Hot Soba (Lunch Set)🍱

The hot soba is not as salty as I expected it to be, light and healthy, except that the vege is like really very raw, other than that, the soba is nice...

The unagi & egg don is a little normal, don’t expect the unagi to be something like those from Teppei, Man Man or Unagiya, it’s just very normal unagi like those off the shelves sushi kind, but credit to the hot piping Japanese rice, making this dish a little better...

The matcha dessert surprised me a little, the bitterness from the matcha powder and the layering of the pudding, this one I like, more than the main dish itself...=X

While the soba, the rice and the dessert are nice, I think for $20 (cos of unagi, need top-up another $5 for the lunch set), I think once will do or just go for their other soba set...

Damage: $20 (lunch set $15, however for unagi & egg don, need additional $5)
