The one and only California donburi

California donburi

The California Roll… one of the most popular and delicious types of maki sushi. It’s not a traditional sushi roll as it was invented in the US, but its appeal is worldwide. My friend (and regular SSB diner) Brandon contacted me today and gave some menu recommendations based on his recent trip to Japan.

One of the dishes he enjoyed was the California donburi.  It seems like such a simple idea that I’m surprised every restaurant isn’t offering this!  It’s the California roll but expanded into donburi… crabstick, cucumber, avocado, tamago (egg), and ebiko (shrimp egg) draped on a bed of sushi rice with light yuzu sauce drizzled on top.

So I went to Roy with this California donburi suggestion. He thought for awhile and was skeptical, “Why would someone want a California donburi?”  I didn’t have much in response other than, “Who wouldn’t want one? People like the california roll after all!”  After some back and forth we decided he might as well just make one so we could test it.

Verdict: Awesome.

I believe we’re the first restaurant in Singapore to offer California Donburi. We’ll test it out to see how people like it, so it’s only available for a limited time. California donburi and miso soup combo for 12.80. Get your avocado fix today!

    California donburi – sounds yummy just from the look. Yeah…I will try it for sure at your SSB. Hope it doesn’t run out by the time I’m back from India (since you mentioned it’s for a limited time only).
