This was a value for money set of sushi, including four chutoro, negitoro, ikura and uni, amongst other fresh sushis. It’s rare to find such quality of sushi in supermarket sushi.

If you want a kaisen don with thick, fresh slices of sashimi at affordable prices, this is the place to go. There’s 3 thick slices of salmon, 3 yellowtail, 2 scallop, 2 tamago and 1 shrimp, topped with a hefty amount of ikura. The queue at 1pm on a Monday was 20min long, and it can be over an hour for weekend dinner. Do note that if you order via grabfood or on the website, the menu is limited, but you can get the full menu if you call to takeaway.

I really liked this chirashi don. The chirashi was fresh and there was a good portion of both rice and chirashi. It’s good value for money.

Nice thick and fresh cuts of sashimi atop a bed of sushi rice. Not my favourite chirashi don, but it was reasonable at this price.

There are several Japanese eateries in Thomson Plaza. I chose Hokkaido-ya because it has chirashi salad, instead of just chirashi don. The chirashi, including the prawn, was fresh. It comes with roasted sesame dressing on the side.

I got this set of 7 aburi sushi as a takeaway. There were hits and misses. The octopus and yellowtail were disappointingly tough and chewy. The other pieces were tender and flavourful, though not the freshest. This comes with a bowl of clear soup as well.

Delicious mix of chirashi. There was a mixture of different types, some soft to the point of melting in the mouth, some firm, and all smooth and fresh. The rice is brown rice with a special seasoning, so it tastes like an upgraded version of sushi rice. I rarely eat rice but I finished up every grain of this. The miso soup also tasted better than any other miso soup I’ve ever had, and had lots of beancurd and seaweed in it. Absolutely delicious dinner. 1-for-1 with Entertainer made it especially worth it.

Soft tofu in century egg sauce with spring onions and tobiko on top. The sauce is thick and has an overwhelmingly strong taste of century egg. Quite an interesting side dish.

One of the few places where you can get aburi chirashi don that comes with whole (not cubed) aburi sashimi slices, and isn’t covered with mentaiko sauce. The aburi sashimi slices are marvellously thick, fresh and tender. It’s one of my favourite indulgences!

Soft big chunks of unagi wrapped in 3 thick layers of tamago egg, and dressed in unagi sauce. This is super tasty, and a surprising find in Don Don Donki. It’s almost heavenly sinking your teeth through the thick layers of tamago, then encountering the succulent unagi. I recommend it for anyone who likes unagi and eggs.

Not sure why some of the reviews here complain about the portion size. I found this quite a good portion for the price, and that’s even though I got salad instead of rice. My toppings were salmon, small scallops, whelk and squid. Apart from the squid which was a little tough, the rest of the chirashi were tender and fresh. Would definitely come back for affordable chirashi.

Rare to find ochazuke at this price in Singapore. This comes with a bowl of rice topped with lots of salmon flakes, a few cucumbers and ikura, and a pot of a savoury green tea soup that you pour into the bowl of rice. There’s some seaweed in the rice and the combination of rice and soup is very tasty. I changed the onsen egg to a hanjuku egg for no additional charge.
