Salmon Samurai took over the premise of Shinkansen but I later found out that they belonged to the same group. The group changed their Shinkansen outlets to the new concept which focuses on customizable salmon donburi, noodle, and salad bowls.
Similar to the popular poke bowl concept, you first pick a bowl from the few standard pre-fixed combinations. This is followed by the choice of base, though the highlight was the option of udon (my fav) on top of the regular choices of brown rice or mixed salad. I chose the Spicy Salmon bowl along with brown rice and topped up with additional onsen egg. The spicy salmon was decent but it didn’t excite my tastebuds.
The aburi Salmon Mentaiko when paired with udon was my favourite. The smoky aroma from the slightly charred bits of the mentaiko sauce was hard to resist. The rich and buttery sauce had me slurping up the udon non-stop! My only gripe was the portion was a tad too small even for a lady. This probably can’t get me through the day till dinner time if I had it for lunch…
