Want to enjoy Yakiniku-On-the-Go and these trending Japanese rice sandwiches and Wagyu Bento?
#ricesando Tokyo at Plaza Singapura has introduced a selection of mouth-watering Rice Sandwiches bursting with Japanese Wagyu, Hokkaido Pork and more from $5.40.
There are also Bento boxes with flame-seared meats grilled with house marinade, stacked atop fluffy 100% Hokkaido Yumepirika Rice alongside fresh lettuce and fukujinzuke or red pickled radish.
You usually get these premium meals in a Yakiniku restaurant; now you can have them grilled ala minute and assembled in a sandwich for easy takeaways.
The selection of Japanese-style rice sandwiches are made using 100% Yumepirika (premium Japanese rice produced in Hokkaido) wrapped with nori sheet – the quality Japanese Ariake Nori from Fukuoka.
Here’s what you can have from Yakiniku-On-the-Go:
A5 Wagyu Yakiniku Karubi ($12.80)
The A5 Hokkaido Wagyu is one of the highest class of Japanese beef, known for its superb marbling.
Here, the ribeye cap which has all the flavours and juicy fat of a ribeye with the tenderness of a tenderloin – the best of both worlds.
After grilling and flambeed on the spot, the wagyu slices are marinated in a soy sauce blend.
It would be layered with a sunny side-up egg and fresh lettuce between fluffy and chewy Japanese rice and crisp Japanese seaweed. Take a bite and experience the contrast in the various textures – be careful of the oozy egg though.
You would find the meats only lightly marinated so that you could better appreciate its natural flavours and sweetness.
Yakiniku Karubi ($8.80)
Even though these are not Wagyu, the short rib slices were still superbly tender after being quickly grilled.
Hokkaido Pork Yakiniku ($6.80)
This turned out to be one of my favourites. The pork belly slices used are from Hidaka Hokkaido pigs which are raised in a stress-free, pristine environment.
These “Yume no Daichi” pigs are raised in special vegetable farms, raised with utmost care, to bring out sweet and robust flavour.
I thought that the pork had a rather succulent texture, delicious fatty mouthfeel (but not over) that paired well with the rice.
Classic Pork Yakiniku ($5.40)
Enjoy Japanese-style pork barbecue in a unique rice sandwich form with pork slices marinated in an original yakiniku sauce – having a balance of lean meat and fat.
Other than the Yakiniku-On-the-Go selection, other staples not to be missed include Gyu Sukiyaki ($5.90), Tender Unagi ($7.20), and Una-Beef Yakiniku ($7.60). Here’s more:
Gyu Sukiyaki ($5.90)
Reward your taste buds with succulent beef simmered in a special Sukiyaki sauce made of nine secret ingredients.
Two thick chunks of unagi glazed with teriyaki sauce with a dollop of Japanese mayo is snuck in between to add a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
“Una-Gyu” Unagi and Beef ($7.60)
The unagi joins tender savoury slices of beef in this surf-and-turf inspired rice sandwich to experience the best of both worlds.
Enjoy your Yakiniku-On-the-Go with classic Japanese sides of Original Karaage, Takoyaki, or Tonjiru Miso Soup that are available as an add-on for an additional $1.60 each.
Go for the Original Karaage chicken that is addictively crunchy on the outside and juicy inside.
