Ordered a teishoku meal, which came with the signature beef hamburg patty on a hot plate, topped with raclette cheese, a bowl of rice, tamago soup, pickles and salad, and paid an additional $7 for an extra beef patty. Firstly, the japanese rice was warm, fragrant and plump! The soup was egg drop soup containing some egg and sesame seeds, which was salty and a good complement. The pickles and salad were alright, definitely just a complement to the star of the show, that was the hamburg! The hamburg was super soft, juicy and flavourful, and thanks to the hot plate, the crust was charred, giving it additional flavour and crispiness. The raclette cheese was a perfect top up for the hamburg as the creamy and savory cheese was a perfect complement with the hamburg.

Managed to get 1 for 1 with burpple beyond! There were 8 pieces of salmon sushi enclosed with tempura bits and cucumber, topped with teriyaki sauce. I enjoyed the crunch and texture from the tempura bits and cucumber, while the salmon was soft and fresh. You can choose from 4 different rolls for the burpple deal, and enjoy live singing!

Total bill came up to $36.3 after using burpple beyond as they charge the service charge on the full price, but it was really worth it! There were 8 slices of thick, fresh and soft salmon slices and a generous portion of ikura too. There was one slice of cucumber and a small piece of tamago, all were topped on a huge bowl of vinegar rice with furikake topping. The bowl also came with salad, pickled sides and a bowl of miso soup. The vinegar rice was slightly too sour, but the quality of the salmon was so good while the salty warm bowl miso soup was a good complement too!

Portion was decent, served with half an egg, sliced radish and some cucumbers. The noodles were initially slightly chewier but got more mushy as it was left in the sauce. Spicy red sauce was spicy, and added flavor to the noodles. The crunch from the fresh cucumbers were a nice complement.

Ordered the set lunch which came with a iced/hot matcha latte and chicken egg udon soup and a swiss roll. The matcha latte was thick and rich in flavor, and wasn’t too sweet, though the sugar level was fixed. The udon came with egg, chicken thigh pieces and some vegetables. The soup was the clear soup broth but very flavorful and delicious, while the udon wasn’t the usual thick kind but was thinner and really chewy with a good bite. The chicken thigh was soft and tender and vegetables were crunchy and fresh. Overall the meal was really satisfying thanks to the warm bowl of flavorful noodle soup.

So beautifully plated and delicious. I was impressed with the wagyu beef slices that were so juicy and soft, along with the fragrant garlic sauce that they drizzled on the beef. It went so well with the mentaiko pasta which was fried with onions, shrimps and mushrooms. The mentaiko flavour was strong enough and was umami and fragrant with the shrimps and onion slices. It was slightly too oily for my liking but I enjoyed the texture of the pasta which was not too soft.

Delicious and one of the better beef bowls with thinly sliced wagyu beef served on rice, with onsen egg, mushrooms, fish roe and garlic chips. The addition of so many small ingredients added to the complexity of the flavor of the beef bowl, which was already amazing just from the wagyu beef slices. The slices were soft, juicy and easy to eat, not chewy, along with truffle flavor. The onsen egg added creaminess to the rice while the garlic chips added a crispy texture and fragrant garlic taste. Overall a really delicious and satisfying beef don.

Worth with the burpple beyond deal! Ambience was nice, relaxing for a catch up. The don was served piping hot as it was just torched. Overall I really enjoyed this bowl. Starting from the white rice, though wasn’t seasoned with any vinegar or sauce, was soft and warm, well-accompanied by the tender and fresh salmon slices. The salmon was topped with mentaiko and torched. They were generous with the mentaiko sauce as there was a good ratio of mentaiko to salmon to rice. There were also small cubes of cucumber which added a nice crunchy bite. Would return if I am in the area!

On Wednesdays, they have 50% off their sushi rolls which is a steal! I always get the rockstar roll which is salmon mentai sushi with fried cheese in the centre. Salmon was fresh and soft, topped with mentaiko then torched for the charred fragrance! The mentaiko was creamy and rich and flavourful and went well with the salmon. The fried cheese was probably cheddar as it was savory and cheesy. I enjoyed the combination of flavors for this sushi roll very much as it had all my favourites.

This was not cheap but I really wanted to try it! The beef skewers were freshly grilled upon order, served warm and fresh. The beef was nicely seasoned with salt and really complemented to beef flavor that this wagyu beef had. Very savory and flavourful. Texture wise, it was very soft and easy to pull apart. It was layered on the skewer which actually was a unique experience. Worth a try but only will buy again if I’m feeling rich.

This was the signature dish in this small little cozy restaurant! Soft and tender beef slices were delicately placed on the top of the rice, served with an onsen egg and a special home made yogurt-based sauce. This was enjoyable in every aspect, from the aesthetics to the soft and juicy beef slices, to the creamy and flavourful yogurt that added flavors to the rice and the beef! It also came with a bowl of miso soup which complemented the rice. Overall it was a simple yet very hearty and delicious meal.

The unagi was really fresh and soft, not fishy at all! The part I ate didn’t have big bones which is definitely a plus when I eat unagi fish. The fish was very tasty and sweet as it was drizzled in their homemade sauce and furikake. The sauce and furikake were also generously served on the rice too, which made the rice very flavourful and enjoyable to eat alongside the unagi. There was even a surprise poached egg below the unagi which made the whole dish burst with more flavours and was more creamy.
