While crowds have been queuing outside unagi restaurants such as Man Man and Unagiya Ichinoji for their Hitsumabushi bowls, Chirashi King Kong will be able to provide a more ‘budget’ option.

Chirashi King Kong is a hole-in-the-wall Japanese Donburi eatery located on the second floor of Tanjong Pagar Plaza.

With its affordable pricing, it won’t be long before office executives head over for inexpensive lunch and takeaways.

Its Bara Chirashi ($14.90) bowl comes topped with of diced salmon, tuna and swordfish sashimi, served on Japanese rice, added with a mixture of truffle oil and flying fish roe.

Other bowls include Salmon Bowl ($8.90, $10.90), Tuna Bowl ($10.90, $12.90), Salmon Tuna ($10.90), Swordfish ($11.90, $14.90), Otoro Bowl ($26.90), Salmon Mentaiko ($10.90), Spicy Salmon ($10.90), Aburi Salmon ($10.90), and Scallop Saikyoyaki Bowl ($12.90).

The eatery is fuss-free and casual, looks like a one-man operation with limited counter seats and some tables outside… kopi-tiam style.

I ordered the Unagi Truffle Rice Box ($11.90) which was served in an easy takeaway box, and a pre-packed utensil kit of chopsticks, spoon, serviettes and toothpick. Nice.

The sea eel was soft and tender, coated with an appetising sticky sweet sauce.

What I enjoyed was the fluffy rice mixture, with just the right amount of seasoning that didn’t tip on being salty, and there was just that whiff of truffle oil without being overpowering.

Will be back to try their other stuff.
