From nasi lemak to Japanese donburi, it is no question that Singaporeans love their rice dishes. Someone had the idea to combine those two aforementioned dishes, and lo and behold, Nasi Don was born. The franchise, which currently has two stalls and one recently-opened eatery near Farrer Park MRT Station, serves up exciting fusion bowls that blend nasi lemak with a variety of Japanese-inspired ingredients.

At Nasi Don, you can either build your own bowl or choose from one of the many donburi renditions. A popular bowl to start with would be the Signature Pork Belly Don ($7.90), which features succulent pork belly chashu, enoki tempura, and onsen egg along with fragrant coconut rice, roasted peanuts, ikan bilis, and sambal chilli.

If you’re all about chicken, then the Honey Miso Chicken Kaarage Don ($6.90) is a good shout. Instead of the pork belly in the previous dish, this dish has a few pieces of crispy and juicy chicken kaarage that’s drenched in a sweet and umami sauce.

The Mentaiko Dory Fish Don ($7.90) is one of the more popular picks. Here, crispy dory fish coated in savoury mentaiko sauce is the centrepiece of the dish. Sambal chilli and mentaiko sauce may seem like a strange pairing, but based on what we’ve heard, it goes together surprisingly well.
