Japanese restaurants in Singapore abound and several offer good versions of chirashi and bara chirashi don, where raw fish is served atop sushi rice.
In a chirashi don, fish is served in thick slices much like in a sashimi platter, while bara chirashi don refers to cubed marinated sashimi.
Raw items in these bowls range from fish such as yellowtail and salmon, to uni and surf clam (akagai). These bowls also usually include pieces of tamagoyaki or sweetened omelette, cucumber and pickles.
Here is The Straits Times’ list of seven cheap to mid-priced chirashi bowls to try, listed in no order of preference.
