Heard about this newly opened joint by ex House of Chirashi chef @kevin_wee_sg and swiftly headed down for their $12.80 lunch opening promo! We were served with an exquisitely plated bowl piled with a colourful array of ingredients - fresh sashimi chunks, micro greens, furikake, kamaboko, sakura ebi, ikura, tobiko, edamame, cucumber, and sweet tamago. The ingredients were anchored by a unique base of kinoko mushroom gobu burdock rice, which we particularly enjoyed for its herbal undertones and light earthy flavour.

At this price point, this bowl was of immense value! All along, weโ€™ve been fans of the for value chirashi bowls at House of Chirashi, but deterred by the original East location (and also heard their bowls have shrunk in size + increased in price ๐Ÿ˜…). Glad that Chef has opened this more conveniently located chirashi spot to go to ๐Ÿ˜‹.

โš ๏ธ Promo is available for weekday lunch until end April! Reservations are possible via link in their bio.

Newfound go to for decently-priced chirashi bowls in the West. Serving up fresh and juicy thick cuts of sashimi of satisfying portions, along with juicy ikura and sweet fluffy tamago atop sushi rice. If nitpicking, did find that the sushi rice could be more seasoned. Each Don also comes with a small salad and miso soup to complete the meal.

The mini chirashi don ($11.90) was just right for a small eater with a good variety of salmon, tuna, swordfish, and scallop. The aburi chirashi don ($16.90) added an addictive distinct but not overpowering smokiness. Kaisen don ($20.90) came with generously juicy pieces which while highly satisfying, can get a tad rich.

Final order of the night for a hit of carbs was their ๐œ๐ซ๐š๐› โ€œ๐š๐ ๐ฅ๐ข๐จ ๐จ๐ฅ๐ข๐จโ€ that looked deceptively straightforward but was executed perfectly - loved the use of fried garlic and cherry tomatoes which infused the pasta with a tinge of smokiness and sweetness.

Our favourite of the night was the ๐ฉ๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ข๐ง๐š๐œ๐ก ๐๐ฎ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ฌ in a beurre blanc sauce ($18). The dumplings were particularly juicy and the butter sauce was divine.

We tried all three ๐œ๐ซ๐จ๐ช๐ฎ๐ž๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ ($10) - potato & beef, crab meat & cream, menchi katsu. Our favourite was the latter - a juicy patty of marinated pork drizzled with a slightly sweet sauce. The crab and cream was reminiscent of childhood takoyaki balls (in the best way possible) whilst we might not recommend the beef one as there was too much potato and not enough beef.

Sweet or savory pancake? How about both! This oven-baked pancake checked both boxes with its sweet honey, savory prosciutto, creamy burrata, and fresh garden cress. The pancake itself was thin and fluffy, with crisp and lightly caramelised edges. A sweet and eggy mix that complemented the other ingredients. For the generous dollop of Burrata, would say that itโ€™s pretty decently priced.

Among the better ones around. Thin skin, perfectly crisp, filled with savory meat and fresh chives.

Kajiken was the first to introduce mazesoba (dry ramen) in 2016. 6 years later with 4 outlets across the island and itโ€™s still a delicious, comforting, and hearty bowl. Dry QQ ramen noodles are mixed with spicy-savory minced pork, onsen egg, seaweed, and a generous dousing of fresh chives. Enjoyed the interplay of different flavours and textures, with salty umami from the seaweed and creaminess from the egg. They offer chilli oil and vinegar on the side, and enjoyed the dousing of vinegar for a refreshing sour tang to cut through some richness. Itโ€™s accompanied by a warm ginger chicken soup (would have appreciated more of this), and free flow barley tea.

Ultra crispy and ultra juicy. Loved the refreshing egg sauce served on the side

Food-wise, Kamoshita serves up some of the best bites across the island. We fell in love with their light and clean flavours and liked every dish.

Definitely recommend this crab with raw egg for a super savory and flavourful yet clean dish
