Japanese casual dining concept specializing in fresh tuna as well as a wide array of fish-focus Japanese cuisine. Operated by a renowed tuna wholesaler in Japan, Misaki Megumi Suisan, and the same company behind MaguroDonya Miura-Misaki-Kou Sushi & Dining at Suntec City, you can expect fresh tuna and seafood that’s flown in three times a week from the Misaki Port at Miura, Japan, without breaking the bank.
With a smaller menu than its sister restaurant, Kuro Maguro’s variety ranges from sashimi, salad, and good variety of sides, to the crowd-favourite and bang-for-your-buck Donburi rice bowls (which are the only thing available during lunch time). For a taste of everything, go for the Kiwami Meshi ($42.80) that features an assortment of fresh seafood such as chutoro (medium fatty tuna belly), sake (salmon belly), botan ebi (shrimp), ika (squid), anago (eel), ikura (salmon roe) and uni (sea urchine), or simply order the signature O-Toro Meshi ($32.80) for six thick slices of simple, unadulterated fatty premium otoro experience, served atop Japanese rice. Check out the Torotaku Meshi ($25.80) consisting of minced tuna, ikura, grated Japanese yam & pickles if you prefer a more thorough mixture of rice and raw seafood.
For something other than raw premium tuna, look out for the series of Aburi rice bowls, including the Toro Aburi Meshi ($32.80) that sees the slices of chutoro received the flame-searing treatment which gives them an appetizing texture, as well as Wagyu beef Aburi Meshi ($32.80), Salmon & Toro Aburi Meshi with minced maguro ($24.80), or the batter-fried Toro Katsu-retsu Meshi ($24.80).
If you’re there for dinner, try the huge grilled tuna collar Kama Yaki ($34 to $42) to go with the seasonal selection of Japanese sake, beer and shochu. A few other noteworthy sides are the fried tuna cheek Hohoniku Karaage ($16) and crispy tuna fillet Maguro Katsu ($16)
