I visited Maguro Donya at suntec city based on a friends recent raving about their otoro don. At 39++ a set, it came with 6 glorious slices of fatty tuna rested on a bed of vinegared sushi rice. The set also came with a small bowl of chawamushi and a miso soup that was good, albeit slightly salty. But heck, the star of the show was the otoro. Deliciously fatty and melt in the mouth, the texture was almost akin to eating beef. Mildly sweet but so rich. The worst part of my meal was realizing i was on my last piece.
While definitely not the kind of meal, one would eat daily. It's definitely worth every dollar and such a good pick me up during the mid month slumber.
The Yamamori Hakkiki Gunkan (SGD$12.00) which is also "warship" / "battleship" in Japanese, is a mound of minced tuna piled high onto Japanese rice rolled with sushi - smooth, fatty and intensely appetizing.
Maguro (tuna) is never my first choice of fish at Japanese restaurants in Singapore because many of them serve akami (red meat) which has a strong bloody smell and taste. But I'm glad I found Maguro-donya where I can enjoy fresh maguro with premium cuts that are prepared in the best simplistic way to bring out the fresh and naturally sweet flavours of maguro.
This aburi donburi is half covered with thickly sliced Bluefin maguro otoro (fattiest part of the tuna) and the other half with freshly scraped maguro meat. Watch them flame-sear the donburi right in front of you and enjoy that beautiful and savory smell of fresh maguro! 😍 Wait and behold, the aburi maguro just fell apart in my mouth with such strong umami. The maguro oil that seeped through after torched made the rice tasted heavenly. 😋
(P.S.: The set comes with miso soup, chawanmushi (oishii desu!), salad and fruits. Talk about a well-balanced and tasty meal 😄.)
The seafoods are flown in daily from Miura port in Misaki, Kanagawa prefecture in Japan by ANA airline. You can be assured of the freshness of the seafood, as shown in this Chef's Special "Kaisen Don" Set. Please read my review at www.hungryghost.sg

Served in a light broth, the grilled nasu (eggplant) carried a light smokiness that gave this dish extra dimension. A nice side to add if you want something hot to balance out the chill of sashimi and sushi.
Highly recommended to come during lunch hour on weekends! No crowds at all, and you get to try their exceptionally fresh and delicious maguro sashimi and valuable set lunches!
Bought my bf here for his birthday treat, and he was so happy! He ordered the Bluefin Tuna Scraped Torched Rice Bowl set, while I got the Bara Chirashi Don set. Both was excellent. My cubes of sashimi were crisp with sweetness and freshness. Bf's tuna was torched to perfection. Had the right balance of charred-ness, yet still semi raw on the inside. Soooo good. I'm salivating again while thinking about it!
We also shared a Megumi Gunkan, topped with Uni. Tastiest symphony I've ever eaten. The mix of flavours from the fresh minced maguro, uni and roe was brilliant! And the serving size of the the minced maguro was so generous, that we had trouble eating it as a whole! Not a trouble that we mind having though :D
No shame in admitting I like tuna cooked, especially when it's cooked like this, crisp and moist.
The Grilled Maguro Kama, which is the cheek of the maguro. The flesh is soft and smooth.

Here's a cut you won't even be able to order at most Japanese restaurants. The off-menu Tomi / Head comes from a small section of the fish, its size makes it incredibly rare, usually commanding a premium!
The thin slices actually begin to melt when exposed to room temperature, and should be consumed quickly! Has a luxurious, clean, sweet, fresh taste!
Ask for 'maguro / tuna' at any Japanese restaurant, and you'll be served this cut... but only at Maguro-Donya do you get it super fresh, prepared with respect, and wallet friendly!
This cut is lean and meaty, slightly firm with a fresh, clean taste, savoury sweet with a light bitterness. Get it as Sushi (SGD $12) or as part of a 3 Cut Set (SGD $38).
The best place to go for fresh tuna sashimi, even the chefs and manager are all Japanese. Set lunch or a-la-carte are all nice. Price average $50-80 per head.
