Been wanting to try Aburi En when they first opened but did not get to do it till they have opened 8 outlets in Singapore! 😛 That really confirms how good this place is for them to expand to 8 outlets!
We went to the outlet at the basement of Suntec City and queues were quite long. Took us a good 30min to get a table for dinner. Inside the restaurant, diners were spaced out and a lot of seats were left empty to comply with safe distancing.
When the first page of the menu highlights the type of rice (Nanatsuboshi rice from Hokkaido) used, you just have to try it!
What we came here for – Premium Miyazaki Wagyu!
Eyes set on the chef’s recommendation – Premium Wagyu Jyu
Cannot resist ordering one ramen to try as well.
The special menu really reminds us of our Japan trip and we ended up ordering the scallops from this special menu.

The noodle came with 3 pieces of Chashu and an Okinawa Egg.
The charshu was a little tough in our opinion but the pork broth was good.
Next up, the charcoal grilled iberico pork jowl!
Close up of the pork jowl. It was soooooooooooooo good! After eating this, the chashu in the ramen really pales in comparison! haha

The adductor muscle could not compare with the one we had in Japan though this had lots of roe. My dinning companion was a little disappointed that the butter did not melt and my grouse was there was sand in mine.
The star of the night took a while to arrive 😛
A side that we added to our rice. It looks so perfectly done!
Love the asari miso soup! Been ages since I had one!

Look at how shiny the meat is!
Check out the marbling on the beef despite being covered by so much sauce! Oh so tender, juicy and OISHII! If they can caramelise it a bit, it would have been perfect!
The okinawa egg from the ramen. Thumbs up!
This was a good meaty dish but I was really too full to finish it after having so many other food!
Definitely recommended to come eat if you can take beef. If money is a little tight, you can still opt for the other gyudons which looked equally good! Those working in the area can also do takeaways which I feel are perfect mood enhancers in these gloomy times.. LOL
