If youโ€™re on a low carb diet, Kazoku also has your dietary needs catered for with the Kazoku Salad ($13.90 nett). The same felicitously fresh octopus, salmon, swordfish & tuna from the delicious chirashi don is cubed up instead of sliced, and the rice is subbed off for a massive mound of mixed lettuce and cherry tomatoes, dressed in what tastes like a balsamic vinegar dressing. The sour notes of the vinegar are an excellent foil to the briny seafood, and the crunch of the fresh veg contrast the soft chunks of seafood excellently.โ €

Thanks for the invite, Burpple & Kazoku!


ToGather Kitchen & Bar is really more like an upscale foodcourt, and one of the tenants there is @kazoku_japanese_cuisine. This Japanese food merchant prides itself upon its plethora of donburis, and the crown jewel is the eponymous Kazoku Chirashi Don ($29.90 nett). A bed of vinegarโ€™d sushi rice is adorned with thick slices of fine & fresh octopus, salmon, scallops, swordfish and tuna, and garnished with a decent dollop of ikura.โ €
โ €
Everything in this captivating chirashi don was satisfactory. All the seafood was sliced thick enough for an optimally satisfying chew, and were free of any fishy odours, proving just how fresh all the seafood were. The rice is an underrated star, with its distinct but delicate vinegar notes, and the perfect cook on it. A little rice, a little wasabi & soy sauce, and a slice of fish, and this chirashi don is ready to rock your tastebuds.โ €
โ €
Oh and before I forget, all the donburis & bentos are covered by #burpplebeyond one-for-one deals! So grab a friend or three and go savour some amazingly affordable & decent Japanese cuisine!โ €

Wagyu Beef Yakiniku Pizza
This Supply & Demand is tucked away from the malls, with a more exclusive feeling for dining with family and friends. I love their wagyu beef yakiniku pizza, which is very flavourful! The yakiniku sauce didnโ€™t snatch away the taste of beef, instead they complimented each other
Supply & Demand


Matcha White Chocolate Almond ($3.80)

I saw their feed for this before so I wanted to try since then. I felt that their matcha was not much taste and slightly sweet due to white chocolate but their almond topping got a lot of. They also sell Green Tea Latte and other drinks on the menu also to pair with the donuts.

I couldnโ€™t get enough of torched salmon with mentaiko sauce, and the ๐—”๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ถ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($11.90) satiated my cravings. This was an excellent rice bowl, but compared to its Chirashi counterpart, it had to take a back seat.

Iโ€™m already looking forward to my next visit to Kazoku. Wallet-friendly Japanese food is always a winner. With Burpple Beyond, you also get 1-for-1 donburi, so thereโ€™s no reason not to come back.


Iโ€™m always on the lookout for a good Chirashi Don, and the ๐—ž๐—ฎ๐˜‡๐—ผ๐—ธ๐˜‚ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($29.90) blew me away. Thick slices of salmon, tuna, swordfish, scallops and octopus adorned the bowl of rice, topped with tiny orbs of ikura. It was simply perfect.


While the ๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ธ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ถ ($19.90) tasted good, it didnโ€™t wow us like the other dishes.


I was sceptical of the ๐—ฆ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜† ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ถ ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ผ ($13.90) at first, but the raw seafood drizzled with a sweet-spicy Thai chilli sauce was absolutely alluring.


The ๐—”๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ถ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ ๐—˜๐—ฏ๐—ถ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น ($15.90) was a showcase of classic Japanese food executed elegantly. The raw salmon slathered with mentaiko sauce, combined with fried prawn embedded in sushi rice, was flawless.


Best described as a food court with wait staff, ToGather Kitchen & Bar offers an eclectic mix of cuisines. One of the them is Kazoku Japanese Dining.

The ๐—ž๐—ฎ๐˜‡๐—ผ๐—ธ๐˜‚ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ถ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ($13.90) was a microcosm of what the eatery has to offer: fresh ingredients, thick cuts of raw seafood and immaculate flavours. This salad ticked every box there is, and more.


There was more popiah skin than duck slices on the pizza. Absolutely disappointing. Itโ€™s only 1 slice of duck meat on each pizza slice, some had none.

Upon payment, the staff said the 50% is only for Margherita pizza when it is stated in the deal that itโ€™s for signature and classic pizza.

Donโ€™t come here, itโ€™s a waste of your time and money.

Very meh. Noodles were ok thi not what I expected - itโ€™s thinner than the Vietnamese noodles I usually have at Vietnamese stores. The beef was terrible, full of tendons, with barely any meat to eat. Itโ€™s marinated with lemongrass, and it wasnโ€™t dry, but itโ€™s a bit sweet. Spring rolls were crisp but tasted average, lettuce and pickled veg were fine. Not coming back.
