1st SPICY NEGI TORO TEACUP DONBURI
Sumo Bar Happy, Singapore
House-blend spicy tuna and Japanese spring onion with grated wasabi. The best of the teacup donburis I had this evening. $2 with a drink. #happyhour
4th PORK SHOULDER DON
Gochi-So Shokudo ごち惣食堂, Singapore
Not as great a deal as the first and last meal I had here but still very good for the lack of boar taint, the wise move to add an onsen egg as part of the deal, and 4 bottles of free flowing condiments you could choose from to enhance the meal. Would’ve been further enhanced with a more generous serving of green onion though.
5th POK POK GEH
OMOOMO, Singapore
A flavorful bowl of ☑️ Spicy Chicken ☑️ Crunchy Seaweed Karaage ☑️ Juicy Yakitori Sticks ☑️ Creamy Kimchi Omelette ☑️ Korean Pearl Rice At $10, a great value meal that includes a mini side of spicy tofu and a drink.
6th KAISEN DON
Sabar, 4F Wisma Atria 435 Orchard Rd Singapore 238877
Satisfying fatty fish lunch of salmon, mackerel (sabar), ikura and maybe tuna(?) atop a mini mountain of rice.
7th VEGE TENDON 野菜かき揚げ丼
天勝 TENSHO By MOF, Singapore
Onsen Egg & Vegetable Tempura On Japanese Rice. This place serves reasonably-priced yet decent tendon, although towards the end, the last few mouthfuls of rice + fried stuff gets to be a bit much.
8th CHAR SIEW TEACUP DONBURI
Sumo Bar Happy, Singapore
Spicy miso charred braised Nagano pork belly, marinated ramen egg and Japanese spring onion. $2 with a drink. #happyhour
9th TRUFFLE LOCO MOCO TEACUP DONBURI
Sumo Bar Happy, Singapore
Pan-seared house-made luncheon meat and marinated ramen egg dressed with truffle soy glaze and Japanese spring onion. $2 with a drink. #happyhour
10th TERIYAKI IBERICO PORK DON SET
Gochi-So Shokudo ごち惣食堂, Singapore
Comes with a salad of leaves & miso soup; but more importantly, a nice variety of flavorful condiments (3rd pic) which makes this pork dish eminently more edible than it already is i.e. sans 🐗 taint. The onsen egg is the cherry on top, adding a velvety texture to perfectly cooked rice, and for 6.50 USD (w tax + service), it may be the best dining deal I’ve gotten anywhere on the 🔴.
11th SALMON KAISEN DONBURI
Tanuki Raw, Singapore
A mix of salmon sashimi, aburi salmon belly, cubed spicy salmon, mentaiko seared salmon sashimi and ikura over Tanuki Raw’s signature mixed rice
14th TRUFFLE SHORT RIB TEACUP DONBURI
Sumo Bar Happy, Singapore
Slow-braised US beef short ribs dressed with truffle soy glaze, marinated ramen egg and Japanese spring onion. $2 with a drink. #happyhour
15th US WAGYU DON 和牛丼
Chikuwatei Nishi, Singapore
“US wagyu in sweet nippon sauce, topped with onsen egg, fresh spring onions and garlic chips.” This was probably better than pretty good but it stopped short of being really good for the eyelash in my egg (although it was very memorable for that reason). 😑
16th SALMON DON
Umi Nami, Singapore
Generous serving of salmon over a warm bed of rice.
17th サーモン丼 SALMON DON
Sushi Tei, Singapore
Salmon with sushi rice. Pricey, now that I’ve been ruined by 日本国 🇯🇵 😏
JUST OK
18th TRUFFLE YAKINIKU
Tanuki Raw, Singapore
Pan-seared US black angus short rib, onsen egg, truffle soy sauce over Tanuki Raw’s signature rice. This was a particularly tough cut of meat with a lot of gristle and that belonged in a pressure cooker :/ The rice was tasty though.
19th TEMPURA DON
天亭 TENTEI , 千葉県 〒286-0104 Japan
Bowl of rice topped with tempura [shrimp, something else from the sea (eel? fish?) bell pepper and kabocha pumpkin]. It was part of a set that came with soba noodles and turnip greens. I would’ve preferred the tempura to be crispy but they were soggy (possibly from the sauce that soaked through the rice).
