Seems like some Bara Chirashi shops in Singapore are going on the “cheapest” route. Well, great for consumers who are looking at saving some money while indulging in sashimi cubes.
Kei Kaisendon, available at Novena Square 2 and Paya Lebar Square, offers their Kaisendon in SML versions, priced at $12.90, $16.90 and $19.90.
The small bowl should satisfy those who are budget or carb conscious.
Other than the Signature Kaisen Don ($16.90), other bowls include Unagi Kaisen Don ($19.90), Chirashi Kaisen Don ($26.90), Scallops Kaisen Don ($19.0), Salmon Kaisen Don ($18.90) and Aburi Mentaiko Kaisen Don ($17.90).
I had the Signature Kaisen Don, overall a decent bowl. This reminded me of Teppei Syokodo’s version to a small extent in terms of usage of seasoning for the marinate.
With addition of salmon, tuna, baby scallops and yellowtail, I wished that the pieces were more evenly cubed.
My friend commented that the tuna was mushier than the rest of the ingredients, which I agreed.
With Unadon all in the rage in Singapore, the introduction of an Unagi Kaisen Don ($19.90) seems to ride on with the trend.
While the Japanese sea eel pieces added some sweet-savoury flavours in the overall combination, some diners may not feel comfortable with having both raw and cooked ingredients mixed in the same bowl.
Also wondered about the ample addition of wakame, which while added colour was overall distracting in appreciating the full freshness of the bowl.
There are currently branches at Novena Square and Paya Lebar Square, soon to open at Suntec City (near Kimchi Korean Restaurant).
