The first time we dined at Kuro Izakaya in September last year, we found most of the food incredibly salty and not the most memorable dining experience we’ve had in a Japanese eatery so we simply forgot about it. Two days ago, we were looking for a place to have our dinner (at 9pm) because Day One of the National Achievers Congress ended really late, way past 8pm! We found that there’s 50% off at Kuro Izakaya via Eatigo (<-click on the link to check out the current promotions) for the 9pm timeslot, so we gratefully made our way there. We found the place looking incredibly familiar (like ‘Hey, we’ve been here before!’ and lo’ and behold I’ve even blogged about it before. LOL) and we ordered items we’d not tried previously. And they were HITS!
This Black Pepper Beef Don was served last but was totally worth the wait.
For just S$4.45++ (after the 50% off via Eatigo), there are sizeable chunks of still very tender (and pink in some areas) beef, and those awesome slices of fried garlic. I SERIOUSLY love garlic! While he found it a little salty (actually he finds a lot of things salty as he’s watching out for his blood pressure), I thought it was alright. For this kind of pricing, you won’t find something similar elsewhere ok? I’d recommend you head down ASAP to enjoy the Eatigo promotion before it’s gone.
And it’s the same thing for the Aburi Salmon Don. Just S$4.95++ after the Eatigo promotion (and we’re talking about Suntec ok, so this is mindblowingly
cheap affordable). And the Sashimi Platter’s just S$12++.
I love the swordfish and salmon sashimi slices. I’m not a big fan of tuna, unless it’s in a sandwich like those at Subway. The Aburi Salmon Don (Aburi means “flame seared” – I just Googled it too, so you’re welcome) with the mentaiko sauce was TOO YUMMY! He was a bit apprehensive when I ordered the small portion of this dish but I wasn’t taking any chances. And it turned out alright – sauce was fantastic, salmon delicious, and it’s easy to finish all the rice when you pair it with the sauce.
And if you’ll read my previous blogpost about Kuro Izakaya here, you’ll find that the OYSTERS are really good too. What are you waiting for? It’s now or never. Book a 50% timeslot and go order the a la carte items (lunch sets, drinks, etc are not included). You’ll thank me for it later.
Don’t even have to feel paiseh (read: embarrassed) about not ordering drinks (we had our water bottles filled to the brim at the NAC) because you do the ordering via the tablet located at your table. Order’s sent electronically to the kitchen and staff only serve you what you’ve selected. No one’s going to stand around and ask “So, what drinks would you like to have? Any skewers to go along with the food? How about dessert?” 😀
Our total bill for this meal was S$25.19. Also, we’re getting $1.50 rebate from Shopback ‘cos we clicked through to Eatigo via Shopback. Too much trouble for you? Then just pay full price lah. 😀
Kuro Izakaya is located at Tower 3 of Suntec City, #01-6-4/605. It’s not within the shopping mall; it’s actually outside, and you’ll see it if you’re heading out to the taxi stand.
You’re more than welcome. 🙂
