Yakitori (from $1.40) - Nicely charred assortment of skewers with our unexpected favourite being the broccoli.

The $8.50 set includes choice of noodle/ rice and meat and comes with a drink/ soup. Enjoyed both the tamago don with the fluffy creamy scrambled egg and flavourful garlic fried rice. We had well-marinated thin cut beef and topped up for the jumbo unagi ($16). Highly recommend the generously sized eel that was not too sweet, caramelized on the top, and with succulent meat. Other carb options include yakisoba or curry rice.

We enjoyed the Umaki ($5) which was flavourful creamy eggs encasing unagi. Assorted tempura ($11) was crispy but did wish for more flavoured batter.

Affordable, quick, and delicious unagi bowls. Fresh eel is grilled over charcoal charcoal to a tender finish and caramelized exterior. Enjoyed the sweet-savory (not too sweet) marination that’s enhanced by wasabi or chili flakes. Choose from the main meaty section of the fish (unadon) or more tender tail (unajyu). They also offer hitsumabushi comprising smaller, more tender chunks mixed with seaweed and coriander. Enjoyed the light dashi soup with yuzu undertones.

The tonkotsu was well-executed with tender pork loin (loved that it was lean while still juicy) and juicy prawn. Coated in thin crisp and flaky Panko crust. Choose between classic rice or their healthier ‘brown rice’ which was an enjoyable mix of chewy rice and barley.

Fresh and chunky sashimi slices served with juicy ikura, crunchy cucumber, and soft tamago. Enjoyed the thick cuts of sashimi and wouldn’t say it’s the best quality but great for the price.

𝐖𝐚𝐠𝐲𝐮 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐟 𝐛𝐨𝐰𝐥 ($16.80) - Tender, juicy, and well-marinated wagyu beef slices. Served together with onsen egg that added creaminess to the rice. Chose to add on beef for $6.80 and it was a truly generous loading of proteins. We did find the meat to have a slight gamy taste which perhaps the truffle Mayo or mentaiko would cover up for those that dislike a string near flavour.

Would recommend the Katsu omu kare raisu ($16.90) which featured crispy premium pork loin, pillowy and creamy omelette swirl, and Japanese curry sauce, and chewy Chuka idako ($5.80).

Have you ever had ice cream with rice 🍦🍚? This unique and strange dish initially had us skeptical but turned out to be palatable and enjoyable. The creaminess of the ice cream went well with the QQ sushi rice, juicy pops of tobiko, and crunchy cucumber.

The fruity melon flavour was sweet and light enough to not overpower the seafood. Mimicked a cold sauce/ gazpacho in pairing with salty and umami lobster salad and ebi, and savory julienned shiso leaves. Creative combination for the adventurous ones, and great for beating the SG heat!

Assorted sashimi sushi ($26) ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
Bara chirashi ($22) ⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️
🍴Tried out Chura’s lunch specials after seeing positive reviews on Google. Among the two sets, found the sashimi sushi set more value for money with the 12 fresh and quality seafood cuts. The bara rendition featured more stringy cuts but was still enjoyable in variety and textural mix.

Each set comes with a choice of cold or hot udon, appetizer, miso soup, and dessert of the day. The appetizer was a small serving of tangy kimchi that went well with the sushi rice but not quite the sashimi. We enjoyed the slurpworthy udon and hearty miso soup, but don’t have high expectations for ‘dessert’ as ours was canned fruit.

Leveling up their usual kaisendon, Teppei’s new bowl features a wider array of fresh sashimi pieces, tender unagi, juicy ikura, cubed cucumber, and soft tamgo. The sashimi is lightly marinated to feature the natural briny flavours. Their new homemade rich and thick sesame-based soy sauce is served on the side; a flavour bomb that elevated the fluffy Japanese rice but slightly overpowered the fish pieces. Personal preference was to separately eat the pieces with wasabi, and the rice with the sauce.

This premium set is highly value-for-money with the inclusion of salad - crunchy cabbage lightly tossed with sesame sauce, smooth chawanmushi, and udon. The latter was of enjoyable firmness and chew.
