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?

The Market Grill – An American Diner That Serves Amazing Wagyu Steaks And Super Fresh Lobster

James Chan

The Market Grill

The Market Grill might be familiar to many along Telok Ayer Street as they’ve been around for many years. Meaning, they’re definitely doing something right. Designed like an “All American Diner”, The Market Grill exudes a casual atmosphere that serves honest and generous portions of food.

The Food

The secret behind their success? Definitely their charbroiler that utilizes charcoal to grill their meats. This gives their awesome wagyu steaks that nice smoky flavour and locks in the juiciness of the meat while possessing a well-cooked crusty exterior.

Farmer’s Hash, $24

Sweet Potato, Potato, Farmer’s Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Beans And Poached Egg.

The egg was beautifully cooked and after bursting that yolk, all that creamy goodness just spread out evenly throughout the dish. The portion was extremely generous but I honestly feel the price is a little steep, just a little.

Lobster Benedict, $32 / Salmon Benedict, $18

Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Capers, Mixed Salad And House Dressing

THEY USE REAL LOBSTER MEAT! And it’s super sweet and fresh too! For $32? Now this is definitely value-for-money.

For its Salmon counterpart, they cure the salmon in house. This results in a less salty smoked salmon compared to what’s readily available in the market.

Lobster Roll, $52

Whole Lobster Deshelled with herbed pommery mayo mounted on a toasted brioche roll, topped with tobiko

This is definitely one of the stars of The Market Grill. They use a super fresh 500g (on average) whole lobster. The tobiko gives an added texture and there’s hints of mustard in every bite.

I’m also told that when it comes to lobster rolls, The Market Grill are the pioneers in Singapore and seeing as how long they’ve been around, I believe them.

Wagyu Tri Tip 200g / 300g , $49 / $65

Grain fed. Red Wine Jus Served With Onion Confit And Mash Potato

Their meats are all imported from Australia and definitely a MUST TRY. It’s so juicy and tender that you can even eat it without the red wine sauce! (Of course, with the red wine sauce, it just elevated the awesomeness of this dish). Like I mentioned above, the trick is their charbroil grill.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Yes for two reasons. The lobster and the steak. They’re reasonably priced for premium ingredients (especially that live lobster) and they taste so damn good! I would come back over and over again for sure!
