An Instagram Worthy Tsukimi Hamburg Don
For those unfamiliar, hamburgs are meat patties prepared Japanese-style with special cooking techniques designed for maximum flavour. The chefs behind Tsukimi Hamburg, Sogabe-san and Yoshida-san, put a lot of research into creating the perfect patty, including the mixture of meats and the selection of the freshest Japanese ingredients.
For example, an exact amount of bread crumbs is included in the patty just enough to tenderise it, but not make it too soft. The patty is also shaped uniquely with a slight concave in the center to help it cook evenly and seal its juices. According to Sogabe-san, hamburgs are a big trend in Japan, inspiring them to bring this concept to Singapore.
‘Tsukimi’ translates to ‘Moon Viewing’ in Japanese, symbolised by the inclusion of the raw egg yolk to represent the moon. This is best shown in their signature dish the Tsukimi Hamburg Don ($12.80), boasting a hamburg patty resting on a bed of Hitomebore rice and topped with a picturesque golden raw egg yolk. The best way to eat it is to pop the yolk, mix it with the rice and enjoy everything with a drizzle of their dashi-based sauce.
It tasted as good as it looked! The hamburg patty was juicy and flavourful with a nice seared crust on the outside, complimented by the creaminess of the egg yolk and umami from the sauce. Every component of the dish worked in tandem down to the rice, which was perfectly cooked and provided a balanced mouthfeel with the tender patty. The eggs are pasteurised and air-flown directly from Japan for guaranteed freshness!
If you’re uncertain about the egg yolk, there are four other variations of hamburg donburi available, including the Classic Hamburg Don ($11.80) with ponzu oshi (grated radish with citrus sauce) or the Spicy Sakura Ebi Hamburg Don ($11.80) topped with mini sakura ebi prawns in garlic chilli oil.
Sizzling Teishoku Options With Foie Gras And Raclette Cheese
There are also hotplate sets, called Teishoku. These are hamburg patties served on a sizzling hotplate and topped with a selection of delicious sauces, like the luxurious Raclette Cheez Hamburg Steak Teishoku ($16.80) that comes with a blanket of salty melted cheese, and the ultimate Foie Gras Hamburg Teishoku ($19.80) with seared foie gras and demi glace sauce. Both options were savoury and satisfying with sauces that paired perfectly with rice.
There are also other options like the Bacon Hamburg Steak Teishoku ($16.80) that comes with a slab of thick-cut bacon and the Kinoko Hamburg Stak Teishoku ($16.80) with a mustard-based cream sauce and mushrooms. These sets come with generous serving sizes with rice, egg-drop soup, pickles and even a side salad, making them super value-for-money!
