The famous kaisendon (seafood rice bowl) specialty restaurant in Tokyo, Japan, which has several outlets in the city, sees snaking queues practically every single day.

If you’ve always wanted to get a taste of their signature zeitaku-don, an extravagant kaisendon with a mountain of seafood toppings, but have no upcoming travel plans to Japan, fret not.

Kaunta, a Japanese omakase restaurant in Tanjong Pagar, has launched their very own version of the viral kaisendon, comprising a bowl of sushi rice topped with 10 different types of sashimi; think chopped fish, uni, ikura, and snow crab.

There are three sizes to choose from, with the most affordable option being Ume (S$19.90).

But if you feel like treating yourself, why not splash out on the Tokujo (S$39.90), the equivalent of Tsujihan’s Tokujo (Supreme) Course (S$31.90, ¥3,600), brimming with extra uni, ikura, and kani?

When you are about halfway done, the chef will fill your bowl with a comforting prawn and sea bream-based broth so that you can enjoy what’s left of the rice and sashimi ochazuke-style. It’ll probably be the most indulgent “porridge” you’ll ever eat.

Every bowl also comes with a side of aged hamachi sashimi with sesame dressing — just like at Tsujihan — as well as wasabi, pickles, and a special egg yolk sauce.

Do note that the kaisendons are available in limited quantities for walk-in customers at 12pm–3pm (lunchtime) from Tuesday to Saturdays, so be prepared to queue. Still, you are recommended to arrive early on off-peak days (Tuesdays to Fridays) or before 12pm for the first seating.

Will you be heading down to Kaunta for your kaisendon fix?
