Media Tasting at Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke
A brand new concept restaurant, Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke, showcases the best of both worlds of classic Japanese dishes like beef sukiyaki and gyu don in a bowl. When we see Keisuke, we can’t help but think of Japanese Ramen King – Keisuke Takeda! And it’s Keisuke’s 15th restaurant in Singapore! Kudos!!
Chef showcases how exemplary the quality of their beef is before beginning to cook in them.
In your dining experience, activate your five senses, where the chef imparts his/her showmanship which we don’t usually experience while having a beef sukiyaki dish. Hear the sizzling sound of the pan, smell the aroma of food wafting through the air and watch your dishes get prepared right before your eyes as you sit back and relax.
At the last step, chef styled the beef sukiyaki don for the pleasure of your eyes and awakens your taste bud. YAY! Time to tuck in!!! Oh wait, the camera/phone first.
Each serving beef sukiyaki don is served with succulent beef slices simmered in a special sukiyaki sauce, shimeji mushroom, tofu braised in sukiyaki sauce served on a bed of warm Koshihikari rice. What can you expect alongside the tasty beef sukiyaki that plays the supporting role? Sesame tofu in a dashi ankake sauce, savoury onsen egg, traditional miso soup and assorted pickles such as pumpkin, beetroot, and gobo and last but not the last Chinese cabbage, Japanese kyuri, carrots, and kelp. I’ve ordered wagyu sukiyaki don. The wagyu sukiyaki beef has a sweet and nice caramelised sugar and special sukiyaki sauce based broth and full of bold flavours. A sweet surprise with a piece of soft tofu sandwiched between sukiyaki beef slices and warm rice. Don’t forget to add some of the seasonings (Ichimi/ Yuzu Shichimi/ Sansho) to your beef slices. I’ve also enjoyed adding yuzu shichimi as it enhances the optimum flavour of the sukiyaki beef.
Beef Sukiyaki Don (US Prime Beef, a Chuck Eye Roll) at S$13.90.
Wagyu Sukiyaki Don (Yonezawa Beef A4, one of the top three Japanese Wagyu known to the culinary world) at S$29.90.
And when we zoom into the small details, the rice that we had is carefully prepared in a traditional Donabe rice cooker, giving a sweet flavour and soft texture.
And if you realised, there are only two main dishes on the menu; Beef Sukiyaki Don and Beef Sukiyaki Don. If you can’t get enough of the delicious beef slices, feel free to order additional serving of the US prime beef or wagyu beef starting from S$10++. There are only 14 seaters in this restaurant, be sure to be there early to avoid queue!
Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke will officially open the door in Singapore on Monday, 24 September 2018.
