One would expect a Japanese eatery selling donburi to have a certain “look”, but Chirashi King Kong at Millenia Walk got more adventurous with neon lights, camo prints and Be@rbricks decorations.
I didn’t quite mind it, it feels young and energetic, which provides some contrast to the other more corporate-targetted cafes and restaurants at Millenia Walk.
This is Chirashi King Kong’s 2nd shop, the first being a more humble and obscure shop at the 2nd level of Tanjong Pagar Block 1.
Prices still remain affordable for office workers, with most of the items priced between $10.90 and $14.90.
With that said, there are a number of shops selling similar food in the vicinity, such as Teppei Syokudo and Rakuzen.
Popular choices at this small eatery include the Unagi Truffle ($12.90), Barachirashi ($14.90), Salmon Mentaiko ($10.90), Assorted Fish ($14.90) and Scallop Saikyoyaki ($12.90).
There is also the recommended King Kong Bowl ($15.90) which is primary topped with Toro – with both sliced and minced versions of the fatty tuna in the same bowl, Negitoro, and Ikura.
But the star is truly the Truffled Mentaiko Rice beath, fluffy with the right amount of seasoning, and that whiff of truffle oil without being overpowering.
I also ordered a Sashimi Salad ($9.90) included with diced salmon, tuna and swordfish sashimi, and generous serving of flying fish roe for its price.
It was a straight-forward, standard bowl, though there is a little part of me who wished there was more to feel fuller.
Just a little suggestion: Since they are called “Chirashi King Kong”, perhaps they can really explore a bigger portion and sized bowl. I think people are willing to pay slightly more for good quality fish.
