hokkaido ya - chirashi don

Spice lovers should head straight for the Lobster Salad Bara Chirashi Don (S$15.90). Apart from cubed sashimi topped on a vinegared sushi rice bed, a spoonful of creamy lobster salad completes the dish. Do note that a liberal dusting of red chilli pepper is also used.

I loved the freshness and size of seafood chunks that were used, especially the plump baby scallops. A generous amount of lobster flesh was added to the salad and added a pleasant bite to the rice bowl. 

hokkaido ya - ikura truffle rice bowl

For those looking for a heavier seasoning, the Salmon Oyako Tartar Don (S$15.90) may entice you. Salmon sashimi slices and a dollop of salmon roe sits neatly atop fluffy sushi rice.

The latter elevates the flavours from the heap of truffle-infused tartar sauce. Coupled with the runny egg yolk, this dish is not for the faint-hearted as its creaminess can get overwhelming.

hokkaido ya - mazeudon

My personal favourite is the refreshing Mazeudon (S$10.90). Paired with roasted pork, crab meat and corn bits, I can foresee this dish becoming a popular option for a quick lunch.

The maze dressing sauce lightly seasons the perfect QQ udon noodles while its accompanying components introduce saltiness and textures. 

hokkaido ya - ebi mentai don

Mentaiko lovers should not miss the Ebi Fry Aburi Mentai Bara Chirashi Don (S$14.90). Deep-fried to golden brown perfection, the large prawn fry was lightly battered and super crunchy. Mentaiko sauce is drizzled across the rice bowl and torched. The result is a smoky flavour and melt-in-your-mouth broiled seafood.

hokkaido ya - melon shake and sangaria

Cut through the slightly jelak cream sauce with Dydo Melon Shake (S$3.90) or Sangaria Ramune Soda (S$2.90); the latter tastes like a super fizzy ice cream soda. 

hokkaido ya - white curry rice

The last dish I had was their signature Shirobuta Pork Katsu Hokkaido White Curry Rice (S$13.90). A large strip of deep fried Japanese pork cutlet was served with a blanket of white curry gravy. I appreciated that the gravy was not overly sweet and enjoyed dipping the tender cutlet into the thick curry.

hokkaido ya - hokkaido ice cream

Ending off the meal with desserts, I enjoyed the Chocolate Monaka (S$3.90) which sees a thick block of decadent chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two wafers. The Hokkaido Milk Monaka (S$3.90) is an option for non-lovers of cocoa.
