Tried Maru’s aburi chirashi don ($29) with their Saturday 1 for 1 (book via their website or phone) and it was so great!! It’s super affordable considering the quality of their ingredients and also comes with free flow pasta salad and greens. P.s. they are also available on #burpplebeyond.

The sashimi came in quite substantial portions and tasted fresh. The smokiness due to them torching the surface, and I believe the sashimi is sprinkled with just a little bit of some kind of special salt, which really enhances the flavour. The rice is mixed with black sesame seeds and a bit of ume (sour plum) furikake, which makes it an interesting spin on the usual vinegary sushi rice and it went quite well with the sashimi.

Will definitely be coming back to try their hiyashi somen (uni, botan ebi, aburi salmon and other luxurious ingredients) and mentaiko cod fish bowl!!

A scrumptious rice bowl packed with lots of flavour!

I ordered the pork jowl don because it sounded like such a hearty dish on the menu.

Atypical of most rice bowls, this comes with garlic fried rice which is superb when mixed with the onsen egg. Some people would prefer to have uruchimai, or pearly white Japnanese rice, but I think the fried rice makes for a more well-rounded dish. The grilled pork cheeks were tender and well-cooked and seasoned. Definitely left wanting more!

Grilled dried puffer fish. Taste like ba kwa but nicer! Recommended side dish to pair with sake!
