10 Places In Singapore To Get Wallet-Friendly Chirashi Don Under S$18

CHIRASHI DON COLLAGE

For raw fish lovers, nothing is as satisfying as a chirashi don; what is there not to love about a bowl of warm rice that is topped with a smorgasbord of freshly chopped sashimi?

As much as we would love to be able to have this for lunch every day, we are restained by its steep price point. A serving of chirashi don at most places can easily set you back by quite a fair bit due to the use of such premium ingredients. However, not all hope is lost and we are glad to tell you that there are places out there that dish out affordable bowls of this goodness.

After doing a little research, we have here a list of 10 places that serve up stellar bowls of chirashi dons for less than S$20.

 

CHIRASHI KING KONG 

Chirashi King Kong, as its name says, serves up scrumptious bowls of chirashi don that are sure to satisfy your raw fish cravings. We recommend getting their Barachirashi (S$14.90) and King Kong Bowl (S$15.90) which each come topped with a copious amount of freshly sliced raw fish. We also love their truffle-infused rice which definitely elevates the dish and gives it an added burst of flavour.

GINZUSHI 

For the westies, you can get yourself a bowl of chirashi don at Ginzushi at Jurong Point Shopping Mall. Their Bara Chirashi Don Set (S$14.80) features warm rice topped with chunks of salmon, tuna, amberjack, ikura and tamago. The chirashi don here is good for people with smaller appetites as the serving size is quite small.
