If there are a couple of items Keisuke does well, it would be ramen, eggs and beansprouts. Of course there are more.
No kidding, I am the regular who would look forward to having the complimentary beansprouts starter, along with some of their locally-farmed eggs.
To give them credit, their relatively new Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke at Kee Seng Street Tanjong Pagar was also a home-run with its delicious donburi and inexpensive pricing.
The good value continues with Omurice Keisuke at Bugis+ Level 4. (Incidentally, my GRAB driver wasn’t quite aware of the mall building, until I mentioned… ”Used to be called Illuma?)
What? $9.90 for Omurice?
And $12.90 for the Omurice Combi with pan-fried rice with chicken, spaghetti and salad. And those beansprouts.
With such pricing, no wonder the queue is that long. Singaporeans love our cheap and good things.
The eatery is only a 22-seater, so it can be rather cramped and therefore I would recommend you to go off-peak period to avoid the potentially overly-long wait.
The Omurice comes with a choice of one of four sauces – demi-glace, chilli tomato, wafu (soya base) and creamy white sauce.
The Chilli Tomato seems to compliment the fried rice best without being overly jelak (rich) and heavy, and is thus a likeable choice.
You can also request for additional cheese sauce at $2, which would be prepared table-side to the delight of those who love to take some handphone videos.
Then pour the cheese over the rice to your liking. If you finish pouring that entire thing, do plan to head to the gym.
While I won’t say that this Omurice is “gourmet” quality, this offering is right for its target audience (the Bugis+ young crowd) and provides both a satisfying and filling meal.
The outer coating of egg was creamy and fragrant, though I found the rice lacking in that ”wok-heat” and flavours.
So pretty much about everything else would boil down on the sauce you choose.
Be aware that this is a carb-heavy set, as there is either Mentaiko Spaghetti or Neapolitan Spaghetti provided.
NS boys should have no problem finishing this, but those watching your weight, please just go for the regular option.
Even though you can up-size for free.
Do an add-on – I would recommend the Teriyaki Chicken Hamburg ($3.00) because some meat would help balance out the meal.
