Chirashizushi Shou Review: Affordable Truffle Chirashi Bowls, Salmon Mentaiko Dons And More

29th December 2021

Chirashizushi Shou in Bukit Timah

Being a huge fan of sashimi, I was stoked to hear about Chirashizushi Shou located in Bukit Timah Plaza, as they serve chirashi bowls at an affordable price. Apart from chirashi dons, their menu is rather wide, with a range of items including ramen, maki rolls and more.

Food at Chirashizushi Shou 

chirashizushi shou - sumo truffle chirashi

I started off with their Sumo Truffle Chirashi Don ($25.90+) which was topped with a heaping portion of flying fish roe. It had a strong aroma from the truffle oil that was generously drizzled on the rice bowl before serving. At first glance, I was shocked at the generous amount of sashimi cubes they gave in this bowl of chirashi. 

Along with the sashimi bits, it came with diced up tamago pieces to add a touch of sweetness to this rice bowl.

There were four types of fish in this bowl, including fresh salmon, tuna, yellowtail, and red snapper. The flying fish roe popped in my mouth with every mouthful. However, the truffle flavour was rather dull in my opinion, and I would have appreciated it if they either added slices of real truffle, or more truffle oil. 

chirashizushi shou - mini chirashi

The next bowl I went for was the Mini Chirashi Don ($11.90+), one of the most affordable items on their menu. This one featured a bed of rice covered in a variety of sashimi, all topped with a handful of ikura. 

This was a mini version of the truffle chirashi bowl, with a smaller portion of ingredients in comparison. The main difference was the addition of ikura in this bowl, which popped in my mouth with every bite. 

chirashizushi shou - mentaiko salmon

Finally, I went for the Salmon Mentaiko Don ($14.90+) that featured a rice bowl topped with four slices of salmon fillets slathered in an umami-packed mentaiko sauce, and sprinkled with seaweed and furikake.

At first glance, the mentaiko sauce looked extremely appetizing as it had a bright orangey-hue, and was lightly torched on the surface.

I was slightly disappointed as I found the salmon to be a little too dry for my liking, which could have been because it was slightly overcooked. The mentaiko sauce was rather satisfying, with a strong savoury kick, without being too fishy. 

Ambience at Chirashizushi Shou

Take a five to ten-minute walk from King Albert Park MRT Station to get to Bukit Timah Plaza, where Chirashizushi Shou is located. This Japanese stall sees a rather small interior, where you can see the chef preparing your sashimi before your very eyes. They use a great amount of wooden furniture, which makes this place extra cosy and comfortable to be in.

The verdict

As a huge fan of sashimi, I will definitely be heading back down for their chirashi bowls, as they are priced relatively affordably despite their high quality. Go for their mini chirashi bowl if you’re not feeling too hungry, or their sumo truffle chirashi bowl if you’re looking for something to share with a friend!
