[CLOSED] Flaming Don: Go low carb with their new salad bowls!
For those of you who love the idea of Japanese donburi (rice bowls) but want to go low carb for health reasons, you might want to take a second look at Flaming Don.
Popular for their affordable Japanese rice bowls, Flaming Don first started out at Bugis+ in 2017 and have since expanded to Bukit Panjang Plaza.
During Singapore’s Circuit Breaker, the eatery were getting quite a few requests for low-carb options so a range of salad bowls have been introduced into the menu as of 1 October 2020.
They have their popular Signature Flaming Chicken and Signature Flaming Beef as proteins as well as more interesting ones like Hawaiian-style Salmon Poke and Grilled Unagi Kebayaki.
But don’t think that it’s just a case of substituting rice for boring lettuce leaves here because Flaming Don have included a myriad of fruits and vegetables to keep things interesting.
Each bowl set contains chopped cherry tomatoes, corn, lettuce, edamame beans, shredded carrot, cubed cucumbers and dragon fruit to provide a light sweetness to the overall taste.
The salad dressings are dependant on the protein you choose so that the flavours are nicely paired up.
So their Signature Flaming Beef Salad ($15.90) — which has grilled diced cut Australian Oyster Blade — uses a delectable truffle wafu dressing.
Their Aburi Mentaiko Salmon Salad ($15.90) comes with their signature tangy yuzu so that the flavours don’t get too rich.
A heavier sesame goma (sauce) is used with their Signature Flaming Chicken Salad ($8.90) — a strip of charcoal-grilled chicken in their house-made yakitori sauce.
For those who prefer to choose their own dressings, opt for the Flaming Craft Bowl ($8.9 and up) which allows you to customise every part of your meal, even down to the kind of sprinkle you would like — furikake, scallion, garlic chips, Kazuki nori, tempura bits, sunflower seeds or togarashi chilli powder.
In addition to the three dressings mentioned, there is also Honey Miso Ginger available.
There are also interesting toppings available like Chuka Idako octopus, shoyu lava eggs, and avocados to name a few.
If you’ve never been to Flaming Don before, their Signature Flaming chicken ($10.90) or beef donburis ($17.90) have been very popular because their meat portions are sizeable for the price and each rice bowl features an onsen egg and in the case of the beef, nice fried garlic chips sprinkled on top.
Their Salmon Aburi Don ($14.90) is especially popular as it features seared raw salmon slathered in a blowtorched spicy savoury mentaiko mayonnaise sauce. Kizaminori and chopped spring onions are sprinkled on top for additional crunch and flavour.
Flaming Don is currently having a promotion for their flame-grilled salad bowls — enjoy one for one salad bowls from 19 to 29 October 2020 when you dine in at their Bugis+ and Bukit Panjang outlets from Mondays to Thursdays.
