I haven’t enjoyed eating in a restaurant in a while. Something always seems amiss with Singapore restaurants, either with customer service (Yardbird), or the doneness of the meat (Feather Blade), or its price points (Park Bench Deli) — usually commanding itself higher than the value and demand of the food.

Fortunately, I have broken that streak with Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke. This place deserves a spot in the Bib Gourmand list or even a Michelin Star. It ticks all boxes of how a restaurant should be run.

Owned by the famed Ramen Keisuke chain, Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke transports you to Japan with its cramp 8-seater restaurant, so come by at the opening hour if you don’t like to queue. The line gets long in its second or third cooking hour quickly, and the waiting time could set you back between 30 to 40 minutes.

Kagoshima Kuroge Wagyu A4 – $29.90++

Because the bowl is just damn delicious and affordable too at $29.90++. They cook the Kagoshima Kuroge Wagyu A4 Beef to your liking, and whether that’s medium or medium rare, you can be assured that it’s melt-in-your-mouth goodness, almost like butter.

I like it almost red, and my decision didn’t disappoint me. I love the onsen egg, and though restaurants in Tokyo like Asakusa / Ningyocho Imahan would serve it raw for dipping, this works as well.

Chawanmushi and Miso soup is given to you as a start, but it won’t be long before you’re served with that bowl of goodness because they cook is right in front of you.

I look forward to coming back here and getting another bowl of Wagyu A4 Sukiyaki, and even the beef sukiyaki if I’m on a budget watch ($14.90++). If you’re in Singapore, this restaurant should be on your list.
