From the land of the rising sun with freshness as its core

Known for its matcha, this place serves up affordable set lunch with quality food at $13.90++ that consists of a main, soup and drink of choice. I had the chicken naebae served with Japanese brown rice and creamy potato salad and fresh greens as sides. The cutlet was crispy on the outside while maintaining moist on the inside, and the egg mayo sauce was tasty and went very well with it. The brown rice (love the healthier surprise) was perfectly cooked too!

Value for money and it has a combination of my favourites in a set that included the grilled unagi, chawamushi and salmon sashimi. The unagi skewers were charcoal-grilled for the added smoky taste and fragrance. Few bite-sized items that added up to a filling meal.

The Burpple Beyond Set was a crowd-pleaser with two tamago pieces and a bowl of chirashi don, both slathered in mentaiko mayo sauce. The freshness of the lightly seared raw fish coupled with the charred flavour of the mentaiko sauce was a match-made in heaven. A nice salty touch from the salmon roe and seaweed were added on as garnishes.

More known to many as Chirashi Don with a pretty generous portion of cubed salmon, tuna, tamago and salmon roe. Although the rice was not that fantastic as it was a tad too dry, it was pretty filling with a generous amount of sashimi.

Hearty comforting food at an affordable price. The soup broth was a nice balance of sweet and sour with a hint of spiciness to it. It definitely whetted my appetite and the dollop of mashed potato was ultra-smooth and light with bits of corn in it. The set came with a drink of choice and I had a light Yuzu Pear Blossom green tea served in a gravitea pot.

For $9.90, I chose the mentaiko salmon with soba and topped it with salmon roe (+$2). Upsized it with a $2.50 set that came with hot tea and salmon miso soup. The salmon was freshly seared and coated with a generous amount of slightly charred mentaiko (codfish roe) sauce. Paired with the soba noodles, it was a healthy and hearty bowl of goodness. Not forgetting to mention that the miso soup had chunks of salmon meat in it too!

First time eating at a muslim-owned Japanese restaurant and their offerings were many and tasty. The bowl came with small pieces of unagi served on a bed of fried rice. Fried with egg, the rice was flavourful though abit dry and salty. The unagi was of reasonably good quality, slightly charred and crisp, with a sticky sweet taste from the sauce. A satisfying donburi dish overall!

A hearty beef rice bowl that is known to help recovery from fatigue and boost physical strength. The beef slices were flame-torched to give them a smoky taste with a deep flavour from the sauce marinate. Mixed it up with the vegetables, raw egg and chilli flakes, it was a delightful bowl of beefy goodness.

A Jewel exclusive creation. This seemingly small bowl sure packed a real punch of flavour. The beef shortrib slices were tender-grilled and each piece was nicely marinated that I could smell and taste hints of the truffle. Drizzled with their house-blend sauce, the rice tasted so good with the onsen egg that I could just eat the rice with the egg alone. Definitely a must-try! 😋

Strong and full-bodied flavour, the charred hamburg steak was tender and juicy in each bite. The set came with tofu, fried beancurd, miso soup and fried ebi that was oh-so-light and crispy. And what's more, there was a full salad bar filled with a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, potato salad, noodles, coffee jelly and even an egg station (scrambled, fried, tamago and more). Very affordable and very filling meal. Definitely will be back! 🤗

A good bowl of freshness filled with fresh sashimi, ikura, cucumber and tamago on top of Japanese rice. The portion was pretty generous.

Oishii! 😘 This beef donburi looked simple but it was packed with rich meaty and earthy flavour. Nestled atop a bowl of steamed Japanese rice drenched with gravy and shimeiji mushrooms at the side, the flame-seared wagyu meat slices were very tender and succulent. The set also came with a bowl of miso soup that had kelp, clam and tofu in it.
