Cross-collaborations can be beneficial for new F&B owners who need more time and experience, and a platform for test-bedding of products.
After Boru Boru, Rakki Bowl is the next to partner with Candour Coffee, serving up Japanese Donburi. With that said, there are MANY rice bowl shops in Singapore of late.
The menu consist of Bara-Chirashi ($12.90, $17.90), Spicy Salmon Don ($12.90, $17.90), Salmon Don ($13.90, $18.90), Teriyaki Chicken Don ($9.90, $13.90), and Signature Truffle Wagyu Don ($12.90, $21.90).
Price is wallet-friendly enough for the youths in the vicinity to want to give it a go.
I had the Signature Truffle Wagyu Don ($12.90, $21.90), which I consider a steal for its portion.
For those who get a high from the scent of truffle oil (may it be real or not), you would get yours satisfied from this bowl.
There was a strong smoked garlicky aroma in the midst as well, one of those bowls that worked on the scent element.
I was also pleasantly surprised with the amount and quality of beef used, for that price – thinly sliced, meaty yet tender, in a good meal to rice ratio.
Niigata Koshihikari rice is used, and therefore you could taste that the rice is of better quality and fluffier.
(Some Japanese donburi shops use Koshihikari rice from the US or Canada, and there is still that difference. Niigata prefecture is known for growing delicious rice due to long hours of sunlight and large temperature differences between day and night.)
A promising start. Hope to give the other bowls a try the next time.
