Ishiro Rice Bowl @ Bedok Market Place, Simpang Bedok – Delicious Japanese Rice Bowls in the Heartlands

These days when I find myself too busy to dip out for my daily lunch run, I find myself scrolling through food delivery apps to discover new eating spots. Ishiro Rice Bowl is one such eatery I stumbled upon when looking for a quick fix for my cravings for Japanese food.


With multiple outlets scattered across Singapore, Ishiro Rice Bowl has become well-known for its affordable Japanese-style rice bowls with runny onsen eggs and bold flavours. Upscaled, yet wallet-friendly Yoshinoya is how I would describe their delicious bowls! 

Each rice bowl is served with fried tempura bits and onsen egg for added crunch and richness. The SukiYa Beef Bowl ($15.90) boasts tender beef slices that yield easily to each bite, with perfectly caramelised onions that add a touch of sweetness to the robust-tasting beef. Texture-wise, the beef is on point and it’s almost as though you’d dipped it into a bubbling broth in a hotpot restaurant.

The Ishiro Chashu Bowl ($13.90) unfortunately falls short. Though the chashu itself tastes decent and slightly sweet, the meat itself is tough and dry, and pretty chewy. This would no doubt be a crowd favourite if Ishiro is able to nail that fork-tender texture.

Plus points, though, for the Mentaiko Salmon Bowl ($14.90). That fatty, moist slice of salmon melts in your mouth completely, with the blow-torched mentaiko adding to the dish’s overall richness. This is my favourite flavour of the lot I’ve tried.
