KAISENDON SPECIALITY RESTAURANT IN SINGAPORE, Kei Kaisendon is a Japanese restaurant that serves delicious rice bowls topped with fresh sashimi from the seas of Japan! Every dish is specially designed with the right blend of fish, toppings, and seasonings to give you a unique taste every time. Signature Kaisendon : Topped with a variety of fresh sashimi to indulge your palette. They also serve special Sakurai Chicken Soup and special cut nori seaweed to wrap the ingredient when eating the don.
‘Kaisen don’ in Japanese is a combination of the words ‘seafood’ (kaisen 海鮮）and ‘rice bowl’ (donburi 丼). Thus, ‘kaisen don’ is a seafood rice bowl. To be more specific, kaisen don usually consists of pieces of a variety of fresh (raw) seafood over a bed of unseasoned white rice. It’s basically a bowl of sashimi on rice. There is a lot of variety when it comes to kaisen don, but most kaisen don will be served with soy sauce and wasabi. Some people like to pour the soy sauce over the entire bowl before eating, while others prefer to dip each piece of sashimi into the soy sauce as they eat. There’s another kind of seafood bowl you might have heard of called ‘chirashi sushi.’ Chirashi sushi is quite similar to kaisen don, except that the rice in chirashi sushi is vinegared, just like sushi rice. Chirashi sushi, then, could be described as a kind of deconstructed sushi. We tried some of their popular dishes here :
K6. HOTATE KAISEN DON $19.9 ホタテ海鮮丼, K8. CHIRASHI KAISENDON $26.9 ちらし海鮮丼, both with generous serving of sashimi.
For sides we have A8. EBI MENTAIKO $2.9 and A9. IKURA $3.9, definitely worth the addon as you get fresh ebi and ikura served separately while you enjoy your don.
