Pork Belly Rice Bowl

There’s a new izakaya in Orchard Central, Ensakaba. 

It seemed as if they were pushing the rice bowls, so I had the pork rice bowl.

The pork belly was excellent! Marinated, grilled and perfectly sliced, the meat occupied space in the bowl with a soft-boiled egg and diced daikon. The pork was garnished with sesame seeds and finely chopped chives. The rice was moist and absorbed both the yolk and the pork drippings. 

First I was served an amuse-bouche of salmon chunks cooked in a broth and garnished with leeks.

The miso soup had some clams within. 

I had two grapefruit cocktails made with sochu which I enjoyed.
