If you’re looking for affordable maguro (tuna) in Singapore, Kuro Maguro is the place to go. The interior, though relatively small is perfect for dinner with friends after work.
Prepare to be greeted with fresher tasting sashimi at Kuro Maguro – A concept by Misaki Meguimi Suisan, a wholesaler of maguro and sashimi in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, which is why you can expect that the prices be kept at an affordable range.
You can look forward to top quality Japanese food here as the owner insists on using meat culled from blue fins that weigh a minimum of 280kg, where the fish is considered to have a good proportion of fat and lean meat.
Kuro Maguro’s Donburi Menu
While their Ootoro Meshi (SGD32.80) may look ordinary, it is fresher and softer than any Ootoro you can find in a typical Japanese restaurant. Even if you are not a huge fan of Ootoro, I reckon you will not be able to resist this after having the first bite. Umai!
The bright orange and white striped salmon makes the Salmon Oyako Meshi (SGD20.80) appetising instantly. The rice and salmon in this donburi was portioned perfectly. The Japanese rice was fluffy and tasty on its own. Topped with salmon roe, the entire dish becomes even more flavourful than before – A perfect combination indeed!
Kuro Maguro’s A La Carte Menu
From the flavourful Akami (lean maguro) to the balanced Chutoro (fatty maguro), and the highest quality Ootoro (extra fatty maguro), be prepared for a melt-in-the-mouth experience when you order the Maguro 3-Cut Sashimi (SGD38)! Even the sweetness of the meat lingers. This dish is definitely a must-try!
Aside from the plethora of donburis, their A La Carte menu offers a selection worth trying as well. Be right back, as I satisfy my weekly dose of sashimi cravings.
