Now thats what I call A for Effort. Can only imagine the amount of work taken to create this beauty of a dish. Nice flavours although the scrambled egg wasn't as wobbly as I'd like and the chicken was a little hard. Otherwise still a super value-for-money meal given the hearty portions, especially for a place in the middle of town.

Nobody orders chicken at rakki bowl, because why would you when there's beef and chirashi. But unfortunately they were out of fish that day so we had a taste of the chicken. Something I reckon you can get anywhere else, so I'd say go for the beef anytime.

I really like their gyu don because it's super tasty although of a leaner cut without the fatty bits. Meat is tender and sauce is tasty. Even better with a perfect onsen egg. Definitely coming back, its on #burpplebeyond.

Mediocre food, slow service. Highly unrecommended and am never coming back.

Not king kong portion by any standards but still a nice comforting bowl when you're craving fats. Comes with a couple of pieces of fatty tuna and a nice dollop of minced tuna. Some ikura bits and random pickles completed the bowl. That rice mix below is worthy of a mention too.

With #BurppleBeyond, this dish is really good value for money. A nice portion of beef over a heaping mound of rice. Beef was nice and flavourful with enough fats to make you reminisce about wagyu. I liked this more than the chirashi.

So i tried the revamped menu. The chirashi don now comes with bits of fried tempura flour (you know those that you pick from your plate to munch on after you're done). An attempt to give it texture I guess. The fish comes in significantly smaller cubes now which made each mouthful less satisfying. I'd pay a higher price for the old version. But still a steal with #burpplebeyond.

Standard temakis. I can't find any better way to describe them than with the word: Temaki.

Maru is on #Burpplebeyond, which made this pretty worth after the 1 for 1. The two pieces of anago were literally but not figuratively overflowing. A bit less sweet than but a nice change from the usual unagi. I pretty my foie gras in slabs rather than cubes though, i guess much of the fats melted during the cooking process so they werent as buttery.

Whenever I tell friends we are going to Standing Sushi Bar, first question to come would be "do we really have to stand??" Haha no and the seats are actually pretty cushy. Also you wouldn't be standing if you came on a Tuesday when there's free flow sake/shochu/umeshu for the ladies. Found the food a bit overpriced though, with so many decent chirashis costing a fraction of this.

Absolutely delicious egg omelette thats light as a cloud. Went really great with the thick curry which had chunks of meat within. Nice japanese rice grains to soak up whatever's left. Yums.
