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.

This is a great healthy twist on mazesoba, with the same yellow noodles and tasty sauce, but topped with lots of cabbage, carrots and mushrooms. The flavoured egg was large, marinated in soy sauce, with a QQ egg white and slightly runny yolk.

Unfortunately, I didn’t like this at all. Compared to Kajiken’s, it’s much oilier, with a pool of oil coagulating at the bottom of the bowl. Yet the oil doesn’t save the dryness of the meat sauce, which tasted like dry minced meat drenched in sticky oil. The noodles are quite thick, like udon but slimmer – I didn’t like it, but that’s a personal preference. The saving grace was the generous amount of spring onions and seaweed, and the soup to wash down the oiliness and stickiness.

Thick slabs of sashimi, comprising salmon, salmon belly, tuna, swordfish, yellow tail, and scallop, plus tamago and cucumber atop a bed of Japanese rice. To be honest, other than the salmon and scallop, the other sashimi were not as fresh as the ones at the Ngee Ann City branch, which was rather disappointing. Still, the portions and cuts are generous and this still ranks as one of the better chirashi dons.

The atmosphere is noisy and slightly hole in the wall – not the relaxed atmosphere you get at the Ngee Ann City branch, but the waitresses also didn’t seem in as much of a hurry to chase us out.

8 sushi, including tobiko, ikura and uni, at just $13.90. So worth it. So good.

Aburi sashimi on a bed of Japanese rice, drizzled with mentaiko sauce. They are generous with the amount of sashimi, and e amount of mentaiko is just right. Comes with a small side salad and miso soup. Slightly pricey but I would gladly come back again.

Comfort food. The tomato broth is thick, udon is just the right chewiness, and everything is as you'd expect. I enjoyed this, especially with Entertainer 25% off (prices shown are before discount).

Very nicely grilled, chewy but not tough. Really liked this. The price in the menu is $18 but we were charged $20 as they only had big squid available.

This is absolutely delicious! Tender soft aburi salmon on top of unagi sushi, slathered in some sort of yellow sauce that tastes like mentaiko, and topped liberally with tobikko. There were 8 pieces of these and we couldn't get enough. Only downside was that the service was horrible, even though it wasnt very crowded.

Fish and pork broth with two pieces of chashu, an egg, bamboo shoots, beansprouts, and a few other toppings. The soup was thick and flavourful. I loved the onsen egg – I've no idea what they put in the egg white but it was really delicious.
