What is Hoppy? It’s a beer… kind of. Made from salt water, barley, hops and yeast it has a light flavor similar to beer with almost none of the carbs or calories.
What’s that?? A miracle drink?? A beer with low carbs and calories! Amazing! Though there’s a catch – hoppy by itself is very low alcohol (.8%). Leave it up to the Japanese to innovate though… the way to give Hoppy its punch is by adding a large shot of shochu (50 – 70 proof) into the Hoppy giving it a 5% alcohol mix.
Voila – a beer that contains low calories, low carbs and is less-filling.
It used to be drunk by old men (as exclaimed by some Japanese customers when they saw it in the shop) but these days the young in Japan are drinking it for its retro cool factor. I suppose hipsters exist everywhere.

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.
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!
