Unagi VS Salmon is a casual Japanese-style eatery at Icon Village that serves healthy dining options with its grain and poke bowls.
What makes it popular among the working crowd is that it’s healthy, filling and affordable at $9.90 per bowl.
Also, if you cannot decide between Salmon OR Unagi on your bowl, you can now have both.
Boasting one of the freshest ingredients, they use only Norwegian salmon and unagi that is delivered fresh daily. Even the sauces, marinades and sides are all freshly handmade.
You can build your own bowl by choosing from a wide selection of bases, protein mains, and add ons. Base options include mixed red rice, buckwheat soba, salad greens, and fussili pasta.
For a basic bowl of a base and a main, prices start affordably at $9.90.
For the mains, there are 8 staple choices: Salmon Sashimi, Salmon Mentaiko, Salmon Poke, Spicy Garlic Poke, Teriyaki Salmon, Grilled Unagi, Unagi Mentaiko, and Unagi Tamagoyaki.
Recommended to start off with their popular choices: mixed white and red Japanese rice as base, then topped with any of the following: salmon with mentaiko, grilled unagi, or spicy garlic poke (homemade chilli mixed with mayonnaise).
A good non-rice base is the cold buckwheat soba, topped with unagi mentaiko.
If you can’t pick whether to have unagi or salmon, order the Unagi VS Salmon ($15.90), a dish that highlights the best of both meals.
It is infused with grilled unagi glazed with homemade shoyu sauce, salmon sashimi, salad, cold buckwheat noodles, avocado and onsen egg.
Between the two, I actually liked the Unagi better, grilled with just a slight layer of char, glazed with a delicious sweet teriyaki-style sauce, and was rather thick.
However, this bowl is only available with soba noodles as a base, and I thought it would be great if white could have been an option.
