Chirashi King Kong – Delicious Truffle-Infused Japanese Rice Bowls!
Located in the busy Tanjong Pagar, Chirashi King Kong, which is opened by Vincent and Joson, serves comforting truffle-infused Japanese rice bowls. It was a little difficult to spot the five-month- old eatery as its store logo isn’t very eye-catching. Upon spotting the unit from a distance away, we could tell that the store was very popular. The space isn’t very big and there are a few tables placed outside. Many were seen taking their food away.
The Salmon Mentaiko Rice Bowl ($9.90) is made up of slices of salmon that were torched with a generous amount of mentaiko sauce, and a bed of truffle-infused Japanese rice. A deep musky aroma hit us in the nose when it was served and we thought it would be too much. However, the fragrance of truffle oil was strong enough, but not overwhelming at all. In fact, the flavours of this dish were very well-balanced. The mentaiko sauce added a luscious creamy touch to the salmon slices.
We also ordered the King Kong Bowl ($14.90) which comes with two slices of fresh bluefin tuna belly, and a chopped version of it. Other fresh ingredients present in the bowl include seaweed salad, salmon roe and pickles. The fatty bluefin tuna belly slices generated were pleasantly rich. However, it left a slightly tart taste which was weird in my opinion. I found it reasonably priced given how well flavoured the rice was, and also the inclusion of the expensive bluefin tuna belly.
The Salmon Mentaiko Spaghetti ($9.90) was another pleasant dish. However, I felt it was quite ordinary despite the truffle infusion. But I won’t complain given its reasonable price and decent portion! Also, the texture of the spaghetti was on point. If you fancy salmon mentaiko but aren’t a fan of rice, you can opt for the spaghetti! If that’s not enough, you can add $1 for a bowl of sweet miso soup.
Chirashi King Kong offers good quality sashimi rice bowls at pocket-friendly prices. If you happen to be in the vicinity, do give it a try! Also, the owners will be opening two other branches at One-North and Millenia Walk between early August and early September this year.
