Value For Money Donburi by Sushiro

Home / Eats / Café / Value For Money Donburi by Sushiro

My dad has been wanting to try the donburi (rice bowls) from Sushiro ever since he read the review in the Straits Times. Hence, we were all made to wake up early (by my standards at least) so that we could reach there around noon and avoid the crowd. Which I was surprised to see on a Tuesday.

Sushiro at Thomson Plaza is known for their cheap Bara chirashi don (S$12.80) and they expanded to the other side of Thomson Plaza with this little nook called Takumi. That’s where we went to instead of the main restaurant because they close on Tuesdays.

The set of the day was the Tokyo Gyuniku (S$16.80) and sets come with a serving of chawanmushi and salad. There was no choice of chirashi in Takumi as they do not have the sashimi chiller etc.

For $16.80, my initial thought was that this was not cheap. Even if they gave the chawanmushi and salad. But the taste test is the most important bit!

The beef was very tender and well cooked in the sauce. There was enough sauce such that the rice was moist. The rice was also very fragrant and didn’t taste like your typical Californian rice served at most cheap Japanese restaurants in Singapore. Kinda reminds me of how Yoshinoya’s Gyudon in Japan tastes like.

The chawanmushi had a very strong bonito flavour which I enjoyed but I felt that it was a tad too salty but then again, I don’t eat a lot of salt.

Thus, although it’s not cheap, this gyudon is definitely worth it’s price and you’re getting very good value for the quality that they’re serving. Too bad you’ve got huddle on small tables and stools to lap this up.
