Kaisen Don Kinme, J's Gate Dining @ Lot 10 Shopping Centre

The Unagi Bowl we had at Bonta Bonta at J's Gate Dining proved really satisfying for its quality and taste...and the Buy 1 Free 1 deal made it just that much 'sweeter'! ;)

So, we found ourselves back once again a couple of days later and, this time, we were attracted to something from Kaisen Don Kinme, J's Gate Dining @ Lot 10 Shopping Centre when we walked past.

Although there was also a Buy 1 Free 1 promotion at this outlet of a Chirashi Don, we went with a non-promotional item and ordered the Salmon Ikura Mentai Don @ RM35 instead.

Just look how the lightly torched, thinly sliced salmon wraps around the rice like a 'warm blanket'.  Tasting fragrant, smoky, soft and luscious, it was a delight to eat.  But, luckily, we were alert enough to realise that the ikura was missing before we digged in.

So, we took the bowl back to outlet and was promptly given the ikura on a small plate instead.  Maybe they felt regretful at having forgotten about the ikura and gave us a portion that I felt was far more generous.  If it had been spooned on top of the salmon mentai don, I don't think the portion would be as generous.  Oh well, we certainly weren't going to complain.  The ikura was a salty, juicy burst of deliciousness in my mouth! ^.^

Of course, we knew resisting the temptation of the Buy 1 Free 1 promotion was going to be futile (hehe!) and we just had to get another dose of eel rice with the Unagi Bowl Single @ RM18.99 again.

Still as good as ever....still at an unbelievable price as ever (even without the Buy 1 Free 1 promotion)!! ^o^

We decided to get the Fried Chicken Omelette Bowl as our second free bowl this time which was served with the same omelette, shredded seaweed and cabbage as the Teriyaki Chicken Omelette Bowl we had the previous time.

However, I found the fried chicken (in bigger chunks than chicken karaage), with a nice crisp exterior, to be a bit on the dry side.  The teriyaki chicken was a better choice in my opinion.

My Personal Opinion

I've only 'scratched the surface' of what's on offer here after having tried just 2 of the 16 restaurants.....but what I've tried so far, I liked.

There's obviously a lot more to sample...and I'm especially looking forward to one that has yet to open which will offer teppanyaki and okonomiyaki.

  1. gosh, that's quite a decadent combo, having two kinds of roe ingredients - cod roe butter and trout roe - in one bowl ... but certainly something i would strongly consider ordering too! :D

    1. Yup, any kind of roe will do it for me....even fried fish eggs (yum)! ;)

  2. Two down 14 to go hee..hee... The very first time I had ikura, I disliked it for the fishy taste. Then I somehow acquired the taste and I like it very much now.

    1. 14 to go...noooo....I only have my eyes for some of them. If the ikura is fresh, it shouldn't have that overly fishy taste but a delicious juicy, salty burst of liquid :) Glad you acquired the taste for it...I love them! ^_~

  3. Recently I told my wife that we need to explore this whole place again and sit down. Now I am glad to note which 16 outlet I should dines when I make a visit there real soon. It is easy to hop on MRT from my home to their station below.

    1. Aiyah, try some of those that I haven't tried (and write about it)...then I'll know which ones I should visit next :)

  4. Again, the "free" dish of fried chicken bowl was generous in portion!

    1. Yeah, it has been one of our favourite places to dine...plenty of options and at reasonable prices. ^_*
