@jooeunchung is a big fan of the salmon mentaiko don from @donyasingapore.

We were therefore keen to check out Mentai-Ya in (nearish) Seng Kang which specializes in the same dish.

Visual-wise, they look the same but Mentai-Ya's mentaiko sauce is milder compared to Donya's. However, their fish is more tender than Donya's which can be a little dry at times. It is slightly smaller in terms of portions as well.

If you prefer stronger flavours, Donya is probably the better bet but if you like something a little milder, do give @mentaiyasingapore a shot.

Prawn and Chicken Floss In Pineapple(L-$15)
Great amount of big fresh prawn can be found but the chicken floss given is kinda pathetic. Anyway, fried rice was nice and fluffly but can be better. Taste is sweet due to raisin, pineapple bits and honey. Hmm... If got cashew nut in it will be better.

Comforting and homey soup. A taste of nostalgic time. Simple yet hold so much taste profile.

Its like eating the popiah fillings but without the skin and extra ingredients. The sweet crunchy turnip together with the long strand of crispy & umami cuttlefish bring much joy to the sweet-savoury world.

Though not much of a crisp, it stills carry a tasty savoury flavour. Meat texture was somewhat chewy and it was wok-fried with great amount of garlic to increase the aroma. The garlic was crispy and delicious. Haha.

Delicious. Flavourful, not much spicy, though watery but the taste is not cut-off, it still have the rendang in it. Meat wise, some pieces are soft & tender while some are kinda on the tougher side but able to chew lah, just need more strength and time. Paired it with rice for a yummy curry rice.

Sweet rolled-egg that give a pleasant sensation when eaten. The Mentai sauce and the egg flavour can be tasted differently distinctively on its own separately although when eaten together. It's a Yum. Sweet-savoury all at once.

A classic piece. Chopped Unagi, fried egg and caramelised onion over sticky rice in savoury sauce, sprinkled with spring onion. Unagi was soft and holds a meaty texture. Sweetness of it was just right.

For those who want to spice up their life, do get this. Its much more tasty then the original. The spice level do pack a punch and carry more umaminess.😋

Grilled Salmon topped with a thick layer of flame torch mentaiko over sticky rice drizzled in soy sauce. Salmon skin was crisp and meat was tender, paired with the all-time favourite savoury creamy mentaiko sauce, its enough to ascend you to Mentai-heaven.🤭😇
