One of the things we missed the most during the Circuit Breaker period was the freedom to be able to dine in at our favourite sushi place. Thank God they still do takeaway and delivery so we could keep sane at home. They’re finally open in phase 2!! But they also will still be doing takeaway and delivery for people who don’t want to head out yet.

Sorry, just had to post another photo of my Omote Chirashi Don ($12.80) from @omotesingapore because I really miss it and I think this photo not bad 😅 Can’t wait for phase 2!

But a bit worried that there may be an increase in cases again because everyone seems excited to rush out. Stay safe everyone!

I guess one blessing in disguise about this period is that we get to skip the queues for such popular establishments and head on over only when our food is prepared. We both ordered the Omote Chirashi Don ($12.80), the cheapest donburi on the menu and their bestseller item. To be honest, we weren’t expecting much as it’s a half an hour long drive home from the restaurant and the food won’t be as fresh as when you eat it there. To our surprise, the raw elements of the dish were still pretty fresh and delicious, which probably means that they used some pretty fresh raw seafood to start with. They are very very generous with the amount of toppings and we got a copious amount of sashimi salmon, tuna, swordfish, squid and ikura and sliced prawns. We were also pleasantly surprised with the rice which was very flavourful and had a slight sweetness to it that complemented the sashimi chunks perfectly. We can definitely understand what the hype is back and we can imagine how much better it would taste if we were to eat it in-store!

Anything sashimi related usually comes exorbitantly priced and it’s pretty hard to come across an establishment that is willing to push out both quality sashimi related items with a reasonable price tag. Umi Nami is one of those gems that aims to do that and their donburi are incredibly affordable despite the fresh cuts of raw fish they use. Not a fan of raw fish? Fret not as they also have other options such as unagi and aburi scallop. Even better, they’re actually on #burpplebeyond ?! They’re already pretty value-for-money without the 1-for-1 offer so this makes it even more worth it. Can’t wait to go back after the Circuit Breaker!

If you haven’t tried this ambrosial bowl of goodness before, visualise a creamy, briny sauce filled with chunks of fleshy uni doused over springy ramen noodles. It’s packed full of umami and an indulgent treat that’s surprisingly very affordably priced.

Nothing to shout about honestly. While there was nothing wrong with the ramen, it was just... another bowl of ramen. Soup was average, noodles were average. Pork was all right. For an average bowl of ramen, the price is a little on the steeper side. Doubt I’ll come back.

The Circuit Breaker has got me rolling around the house in agony because it’s so hard to satisfy all my food cravings and I’ve literally dreamt of sushi 3 times already. So you bet I was thrilled when I found out that Sushiro now has a takeaway and delivery option. As I live near Tiong Bahru Plaza, all I needed to do was call in advance, tell them what time I would reach and voila, everything was prepared neatly in a cute baggie for me. They even provided ice packs to keep the sushi fresh and cold, which I thought was a nice gesture. And as always, sushi was hella good and I died and went to heaven over and over again with every bite. I wonder if they’ll let me move in.

The first time I patronised Mitsuba was in 2018 when my best friend got married and she and her husband brought me here for a small celebratory dinner. Fast forward to today and my boyfriend and I may consider getting married in the restaurant itself. Have been coming back here for special occasions and treat-ourselves days since, and it’s in terms of both quality and price point, I think Mitsuba is truly one of the best Japanese buffet restaurants out there. The sashimi here is THICCC and fresh, and I could honestly just eat my monies worth of sashimi. But to top it off, they offer over 150 other buffet items, which is a pretty insane amount given the affordable price tag. Any kind of Japanese food craving you have, Mitsuba has it. This sounds like an advertisement but I really really super love this place I hope they do weddings.

Not very sure why, but I always assumed that the food here was overhyped. But it’s not bad leh. The beef was tender, serving size decent, and the egg was done right (doing an egg not right is the worst thing you can ever do). Will be back. Worth it with or without Burpple Beyond.

I eat like a sumo wrestler
