One of my favourites here would have to be the Champion Floss Maki ($9.90/4 pieces). The maki presents a blend of chicken floss and ikura perched on aburi salmon, which gives off that smokey and savoury flavour that makes it super flavourful. The chicken floss also gives the maki a much-needed texture, making it even better!
You probably have tried mentaiko salmon (which is heavenly), but what if there’s cheese too? The Cream Cheese Mentaiko Salmon ($9.90/4 pieces) is just perfection, marrying two of everyone’s favourite toppings: mentaiko and cheese to make this creamy goodness on top of aburi salmon. To add some texture, they added crispy tempura crumbs to balance out the creaminess of the maki.
Century egg lover or not, you’ll surely be amazed by how good this maki is. Their Taiyou Century Egg Maki ($9.90/4 pieces) contains century egg bits and sauce to bring out its unique flavour. Not a fan of century eggs myself, I was pleasantly surprised to taste it and I actually like the tinge of saltiness it has in the maki.
We tried the Salmon Aburi Don ($14.90) which has the spicy and non-spicy option. The spicy option requires an additional $1. The slices of salmon aburi wrapped around the rice with fish roe on top makes it look like the perfect donburi. This dish not only looks delicious, it tastes scrumptious as well!
If you’re looking to add some spice into your donburi, you can opt for the Spicy Salmon Aburi Don ($15.90), which comes with chopped bits of salmon aburi instead of slices. This moderately spicy donburi adds that extra oomph to the mundane salmon donburi. This piquant dish is sure to satiate your cravings!
