Mentai Sens at Beauty World has cheap Japanese don
The last time I visited Beauty World Shopping Centre was to try the old-school bakes at Syiok. The fourth-floor food centre has seen some changes since then, and one stall that has popped up on our radar is Mentai Sens, where the Japanese rice bowls start from just $5.50!
An Ebi Tama Don, or tempura prawn on egg and rice, at Mentai Sens is priced at just $5.50, and comes with three pieces of the seafood.
For a more filling meal, consider adding on more Ebi Fry, priced at $1.20 a piece. Otherwise, you have options including Potato Croquette ($1.60) and Butter Corn ($0.50).
Instead of rice and egg, you could go instead for Ebi Fri Yaki Udon ($6), where the thick Japanese noodles are stir-fried in savoury, slightly tangy yakisoba sauce.
One of their signature dishes is Cheese Toriniku Don ($6.50), topped with melty cheese and drizzled with a nacho cheese sauce.
For $6.50, you do get quite a generous serving of rice, house-marinated chicken, and cheese.
If you’ve got 40 cents extra to spare, give their Mentaiko Gyuniku Don ($6.90) a try.
This don is topped with thin slices of beef drenched in a sweet gravy, then finished with mentaiko sauce that’s torched to serve.
On the side, get Mixed Flavours Tamago ($3.80), which comes with three slabs of tamagoyaki, each topped with cheese, salted egg, or their signature mentaiko sauce that’s aburi-ed. You could also get just Signature Mentaiko Tamago ($3.50), or any one piece at $1.30 each.
