10 Japanese goodies to eat at Don Don Donki at 100AM Mall

Fans of Don Don Donki rejoice! The Japanese megastore, which took Singapore by storm, opens its second outlet at 100AM Mall today (Jun 14). Apart from groceries, beauty and household goods (as well as some weird stuff), the two-storey space also features a “Japan Mobile Foods” corner dedicated to affordable takeaway food items to cater to the busy CBD crowd and OLs. Think portable meals and snacks like sushi, takosen and grilled sweet corn that you can eat on the go.

In addition, we also spotted some new ready-to-eat food items in the supermarket that are not (yet) available in its Orchard Central store. So without further ado, here are our top picks to try.

Don Don Donki is located at 100AM Mall, 100 Tras Street, Singapore 079027. Open daily from 8am to midnight.

Takosen

Takosen

The takoyaki gets the sandwich treatment. Two octopus takoyaki drizzled with mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce, and served between Japanese crackers. It’s crunchy and chewy, but eat it quick before the crackers get soft.

Grilled corn

Grilled corn

What’s better than grilled corn? Grilled corn with soy sauce! We love the hints of savory flavour combined with the sweetness of the corn.

Baked sweet potato

This needs no introduction. Sweet and soft, these babies have been selling like hot cakes at Orchard Central. Hopefully the queues won’t be as crazy here.

Monaka and ice cream

For dessert, there’s ice cream (chocolate, strawberry and milk) and monaka, which consists of red bean paste or sweet potato stuffed between two crisp wafers. Want the best of both worlds? Get it with a scoop of ice cream.

Not something we would expect the office crowd to tote around, but at least you know where it’s available when the craving strikes.

Fried breads and skewers

Over at the supermarket, you can get other finger food like fried potato skewers and fishcake with mentaiko, as well as fried breads.

Oden

We love oden aka Japanese yong tau foo or lok lok, though the selection was pretty limited during the media preview with only eight items on the menu including usual suspects like egg, konnyaku and fish cakes. Where’s the radish?

Pizza

Also new to Donki are the pizzas, which you can pop in the oven if there’s one in your office pantry. We recommend the mentaiko and mayonnaise pizza, which is savoury and oh-so-addictive.

In addition to mochi and dumplings, we also spotted chocolate éclairs and mille crepe in the Japanese sweets section.

Yeah, onigiri is available at Orchard Central but here, you can get them freshly made at the Japanese confectionery counter.

Bonus: Ichiran Instant Ramen

Japan’s most popular ramen chain is here! Okay, so this isn’t the actual deal or but at least you no longer have to get friends to lug them back from Hong Kong or Japan. At $39.90 for a box of five, the instant ramen, which is also available at Orchard Central, are expected to sell out fast.

The supermarket also offers a wide selection of ready-to-eat meals and food items.
