๐™Š๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™‹๐™ค๐™ ๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™ก (~$17) left me with mixed feelings. The addition of candied cashews was genius โ€” sweet and salty against the creamy guacamole and cold sashimi, but the salmon wasnโ€™t the freshest to be frank. Not sure if this poke bowl justified the price tag ๐Ÿค”

For the Budget interactive beef donburi experience. You get the ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› ๐™Ž๐™ช๐™ ๐™ž๐™ฎ๐™–๐™ ๐™ž ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฃ (~$14.90) cooked in front of you, and with sides to match up, this was real value for money.๐Ÿš
-
A tad bit tough (perhaps request for your beef to be less done) but getting the sweet-savoury profile right, slices upon slices of beef and fluffy Kohshihikari rice made my dinner. ๐Ÿฅบ
-
Special mention to the chawanmushi too: crazy smooth and regular custardy texture; yes, no watery lumpy chawan!!! ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ

While it sat pretty in the rice box, the Unagi lacked the smoky charred burnt flavour I love. ๐Ÿ˜• Drizzled with sweet Unagi sauce, spoonfuls of plump and oily Unagi mixed in well with the multi-grain rice.
.
The Wagyu beef lacked flavour, and definitely could do with garlic chips or seasoning ๐Ÿฑ

frankly, I donโ€™t get the hype. I donโ€™t mind eating the ๐˜ผ๐™—๐™ช๐™ง๐™ž ๐˜ฝ๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™– ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™ฃ๐™–๐™œ๐™ž ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ข๐™—๐™ค ๐™…๐™ฎ๐™ช (~$18), but I donโ€™t see myself craving it.
-
Plump and meaty, the Unagi could almost be good. But with the overwhelming marinade and the heavy oiliness of the Unagi fighting for flavour dominance, I couldnโ€™t enjoy this as much. ๐Ÿฑ
-
For a lean cut, my pork was rather fatty, with layers of fat embedded into the lean meat. For some strange reason, the marinade worked better here, and if it wasnโ€™t soggy by the time I ate this, I wouldโ€™ve enjoyed it more ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Survived the jam break during the 10 min ride OTW home and still looking pretty, the ๐™๐™ง๐™ช๐™›๐™›๐™ก๐™š ๐™’๐™–๐™œ๐™ฎ๐™ช ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™—๐™ช๐™ง๐™ž (~$38) with Ikura (+~$15) was crazily addictive. With melt in your mouth Wagyu, truffle slices and perfect grains of Japanese rice, idk what else youโ€™d want in life tbh.
-
The Ikura was definitely worth the top up, the umami worked extremely well with the ingredients here.

Ig @goodfomood

With a generous portion of not too fatty beef, the ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› ๐™”๐™–๐™ ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ ๐™ช (~$18) had potential. Perhaps consider drenching and mixing the rice with sweet sauce โ€” it was rather dry and clumpy. ๐Ÿš

Ig @goodfomood

The ๐™๐™ž๐™—๐™š๐™ฎ๐™š ๐™—๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™ก (~$17) was pretty good, hitting all the right spots with the well seasoned generous portion of Angus sirloin, though I canโ€™t say the same about the eggs.,,.. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

The ๐™Ž๐™ฅ๐™š๐™˜๐™ž๐™–๐™ก ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ก๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฃ (~$15) is my guilty pleasure. Thick and pasty mayonnaise was squirted all over the salmon, providing that mentaiko-like flavour. This would get gelat though, so itโ€™s probably advisable to share!

The ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ผ (~$17.90) faired better, since the lightly torched Mentaiko stood on the fine line between tasty but way too gelat vs creamy without body. The torched mentaiko seared the surface of the salmon just enough for it to maintain the plump body.

Just a mini rant for those of yโ€™all thinking of going: the service here is horribly slow. They wait for everyone to finish ordering before prepping their food, which is kinda irresponsible bc they didnโ€™t inform us at all. Hopefully it was just a one day thing

Ig @goodfomood

If youโ€™re going to make me wait close to an hour for food to be served, it better be mindblowingly amazing @rakkibowl . Not only was the ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ณ ๐—•๐—ผ๐˜„๐—น (~$14.90) just mediocre, there was not even a scent (letโ€™s not talk about taste) of truffle. If Iโ€™m trying to find something nice to say, itโ€™s an alright portion for the price. ๐Ÿ›
