I’ll be honest here. I’ve never tried Sukiya in Japan, simply because my list of restaurants to eat in Tokyo or Osaka are always overflowing with the best ones. My itinerary is always packed with reservations, coffee shops, and Tonkatsu places. Besides, Sukiya is just sukiya in Japan, no big deal.
So I’m not going to compare Sukiya Japan with Sukiya here in Singapore, because obviously there’s a lot of difference when you look at their ingredients, especially with the source of their beef.
What I like about Sukiya here in Singapore is that they managed to keep their prices almost at par with the bowls in Japan. To anyone who’s looking to just grab a quick bowl of Gyudon with an onsen egg, miso soup, and garlic spinach, $7.20 is a steal — almost like hawker price!
I like the veggies best. The bowl of gyudon might be too small for other people (the rice was too much for me), and I think they can do better by adding more sukiyaki beef to the Small size. On the other hand, the onsen egg is perfectly cooked.
Might be worth ordering an extra plate of okra or getting the spring onions gyudon!
If you don’t want to queue, the best time to come here is just a little bit before 12 noon, when people are starting to come in and the line is forming. I don’t think it’s worth it to queue here, even just for 30 minutes. You’d be better off eating somewhere with seats, unless you’re craving for a decent bowl of gyudon.
