Kinsa Sushi – A4 Wagyu Beef Rice Bowls That Even The Supreme Leader Can’t Resist

James Chan

Kinsa Sushi

In his recent visit to Singapore, Kim Jong Un’s doppelganger went to a couple of restaurants with Kinsa Sushi being one of them. So what managed to pique the “supreme leader’s” interest?

The Food

Besides having a smart robot waiter (I named him Howard) to serve food to customers and a levitating sushi conveyor belt that utilizes magnetic tech, it all boils down to the taste of the food. Was it good?

Signature Wagyu Don

The Japanese Meat Grading Association (yeah it’s a legit thing) gives a score to each cow that range from C1 to A5, with A5 being the best quality. Kinsa Sushi imports A4 grade Wagyu beef so you do the math at the premium quality meat that’s placed in front of you.

I believe the amount of Wagyu meat Kinsa offers on each Wagyu don is more than generous for the price and IT’S SO TENDER AND DELICIOUS! Every bite was rich in fatty, beefy flavors and so juicy!

Kinsa Chirashi with Wagyu

When they say “WITH WAGYU” they really mean just a dollop of Wagyu sashimi so don’t raise your expectations too high. HOWEVER, the sashimi makes up for the lack of wagyu. It’s everything you expect good sashimi to be; fresh, sweet, light and easy to go down but over at Kinsa, there’s an added twist – they melt in your mouth! Foodgasm!

Kinsa Roll

Cucumber, Aburi Salmon, Purple Rice, Avocado and Ikura. A pretty safe yet tasty combination. Although, purple rice is definitely the healthier option so this means YOU CAN EAT MORE!

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

I wish I had more space to try the rest of the dishes but I assure you the Chirashi don and the Wagyu don are winners. Heck, if Kim Jung Un came here to eat, doppelganger or not, it means something yeah?

At Epicurious cafe, visitors get to travel back in time with the collection of Singapore items that were mostly used in the 80s-90s. This is one great place for mom to relieve the good ol’ days.

For fans of Dr Seuss, this is the chance to try out Green Eggs and Ham, a dish inspired by the popular children’s book. Not to worry though, the green of the dish is achieved by using basil pesto, so you don’t have to worry about any artificial colourings.
