I love mentaiko so much. Who doesn’t love mentaiko? I don’t think there are many people who don’t like mentaiko.
Thanks to mentaiko, I’m starting to be able to appreciate sushi. Honestly few years back, I couldn’t appreciate sushi especially because the rice taste was a bit weird. But one day my friend told me to try Salmon Mentaiko Sushi and…..boom….I liked it so much.
After that, I slowly cherish few types of sushi even though until now I still cannot take the wasabi taste 😂 so I am eating sushi without wasabi.
Well, today’s article is not about sushi. I just share with you how do I for the first time to start falling in love with mentaiko.
Because of that, I am willing to try any food that has mentaiko. That’s why when I found Mentai-Ya at Foodgle Hub (308C Punggol Walk), I straight away ordered their Chicken Mentai Don.
Chicken Mentai Don comes with steamed rice, dark brown sauce that they pour on top of steamed rice, chicken cutlet and mentaiko sauce on top of chicken cutlet.
The thing I like about Chicken Mentai Don is that they are generous with all ingredients: a lot of rice portion, dark brown sauce and even mentaiko sauce. They also serve this steamed rice in hot temperature. I really enjoyed it even if I only eat this hot steamed rice with dark brown sauce (without chicken cutlet).
The chicken cutlet is crispy enough and the mentaiko sauce covers this whole chicken cutlet. This mentaiko sauce portion is pretty massive, so maybe for some people this mentaiko sauce portion will be too much (absolutely not me).
Overall, I like this Chicken Mentai Don.
