I attempted their Salmon Stomach Don (S$8.90), Hokkaido Crab Cream Croquette (S$4.90) and Taiyaki Custard (S$4.90). Don Don Donki additionally had premium wagyu cuts and recent seafood.

Don Don Donki - Salmon Belly DonDon Don Donki’s Salmon Belly Don got here with three items of cooked salmon stomach drizzled with mayonnaise and teriyaki sauce. It additionally had half of an onsen egg. The salmon stomach tasted recent with out having that ‘fishy’ style. The flesh was additionally juicy and tender, and it went nicely with the agency sushi rice that they used.

I used to be additionally stunned at how nicely the onsen egg went with the rice and fish. It added an additional layer of umami that I’d by no means anticipate would come from an egg. I simply wished I had been given a complete egg as an alternative of half. Total, I might advocate this dish because it stuffed my abdomen, was actually handy to eat and didn’t sacrifice on the standard of substances.

I didn’t style a lot of crab, in reality, it tasted like clam chowder. As I anticipated, the crust wasn’t crispy regardless of trying in any other case.

The creamy style bought fairly muak (overpowering) after just a few bites, and the dearth of any crab meat and even flavour made me skip the opposite piece. With the plethora of dishes obtainable at Don Don Donki, you’d do your self a favour by not selecting this one.

Don Don Donki - taiyaki custardLastly, I had the Taiyaki Custard. Initially, I assumed it was simply regular bread stuffed with custard, however the outer layer truly jogged my memory of mochi pores and skin the place it’s extra chewy with out a lot flavour.

The custard filling tasted like melted vanilla ice cream and wasn’t as candy as I had anticipated. This was a fairly easy dessert merchandise which tasted common to me, so that you is likely to be higher off selecting different dessert choices with good worth such because the Warabi Mochi Soy Bean (S$5.90).
