If you ain’t into beef, @thegyuco still has options for you. The Buta Kakuni Don is the only non deep-fried pork option on the menu, and it’s a deeply decadent dish (or bowl in this case).⠀

Four thick slices of braised pork belly are accompanied by a soft boiled egg on a bed of rice & sautéed veggies. The Gyu Co really lays the braising sauce on, and the bowl of rice was incredibly saucy & umami thanks to the soy based broth. The braised pork bellies were utterly awesome, as they had been braised low and slow till they fell apart with ease. I’m not joking, spearing one slice with a fork would cause it to fall apart quite easily. Due to that long braise in the unctuous broth, the pork belly was deeply sapid and free of its natural porky musk.⠀

Alas, I must admit, the pork belly had too much fat for me to handle. The braising process that had instilled all that flavour into the thick slabs of pork belly had rendered out a good amount of the pork fat into the broth, resulting in an indecently fatty broth. Add that to the fat still on the belly, and my arteries were squeezing in protest as I chewed on the last belly. Still incredibly delicious though, I can’t deny that.⠀

The vegetables provided really endeared themselves to me. Normally other Japanese food merchants would just slap a leaf of lettuce on their donburi & call it a day, but The Gyu Co care enough to serve a healthy amount of sautéed shredded cabbage & sliced onions beneath the meat & egg. Not only did the veg alleviate a bit of the guilt of this dish, it supplied the crucial textural variation that made this Buta Kakuni Don such a delight to devour. All the soft textures from the meat & rice balanced out by slightly crunchy veg? Oh yeah, we’ve got a winner right here.

@thegyuco has opened a new outpost in PLQ’s foodcourt, bringing their Japanese ricebowls from the lawless wastelands of Jurong to Singapore proper. Their standard Wagyu Gyudon costs $9.90, but I was here to splash some cash. Enter the decadent Truffle Foie Gras Wagyu, retailing at a very reasonable $17.90 nett. Now that’s what I call ballin’ on a budget.⠀

The felicitously fatty wagyu shabu shabu is sliced thicker than standard, making for much better mouthfeel & a lot more satisfaction when chewing. It’s wagyu, and it simply melts in your mouth as you chew each gargantuan slice. And there are SO MANY HUMONGOUS SLICES. Absolute beatific beefy bliss, on god. The soft boiled egg is a little extra, but the eggporn man. Plus, the rich yolk mixes well with the Japanese rice that’s saturated with all that sapid beefy gravy. De-lish-ious.⠀

The beef is topped with black truffle shavings, truffle paste and a judicious squirting of truffle oil. As it is black truffle, don’t expect too much earthy truffle flavour. You really smell the truffle more than you taste it, but it’s a sublime symphony for your sense of smell. And of course, the foie gras is the crown jewel in this bowl fit for royalty.⠀

Not gonna lie, my expectations for the foie gras were pretty low, but the quality of this duck liver blew me outta the water. It’s pan seared just perfectly, as the most of the foie gras past the crust is still melting & butter-like instead of a mostly gelatinous chunk like many other places. It develops that sexily seared exterior which contains the jelly-like, still melting liver within. It’s quite literally butter, as its pure fat content just melts all over your tongue. It’s pure hedonism contained in a little wedge of duck liver, and I still have rapturous dreams about this foie gras.⠀

The fact that I paid less than twenty dollars for this stellar, scintillating bowl of pure gluttonous gratification is astounding. You’d pay at least thirty to forty bucks for a bowl of this quality elsewhere, but not me, oh no. I can’t keep getting away with it. I can’t keep getting away with daylight robbery. But goddamn it feels good, man.

The katsu don had quite a big portion! Tried the braised pork belly as well and the meat was really tender.

The set meal comes with a main, soup, steamed egg and a soft drink which I think is pretty worth it for the price point!
