[Singapore] Sukiya beef bowl chain to open at Suntec City

Giant Yokohama-based gyūdon (beef bowl) chain, Sukiya, is opening its first Singapore chain on 17 Feb at Suntec City.

The standard gyūdon or beef bowl served at Sukiya consists of thinly-sliced beef and onions, simmered in soy-dashi-mirin, then served atop steamed white rice.

One of the more quirky options, but the most popular one in Japan, is the Triple Cheese Gyudon (with mozzarella, cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheese) atop the braised beef-onion topping on rice. One tip I’m told is to stir in the cheeses into the hot rice, to obtain the cheesy-gooeyness.

Malaysia already has around 15 branches of Sukiya, mainly in Kuala Lumpur.

Love gyūdon, it was one of my favourite Japanese dish in my youth days and even now. We had a class study trip to visit Tokyo, Osaka and Nara. As poor design students, we could only afford eating out in those beef bowl places, I think it was 300-400 yen a bowl back then, but it was delicious. The rest of the time we had cup noodles back or in the ryokan.

I’ve never tried the cheese version, must be interesting.
