WE’VE FOUND IT! Our new favorite go-to place for Japanese meals! We’ve discovered.. we’ve discovered.. Sora Boru ❤
Sora Boru is CERTIFIED HALAL and it’s already turn into tremendous common! It’s simple to see why – they serve actually scrumptious Japanese meals at actually reasonably priced costs! Apart from your faves, you’ll even discover some fairly distinctive creations too. They’ve now obtained TWO retailers so take your decide!
If my restricted Japanese (and Google Translate) doesn’t fail me, Sora Boru interprets to ‘Sky Bowl’. And that’s what you’ll discover loads of – DONBURI (丼) aka DON aka Rice Bowls! I rely at least 17 completely different Don on the menu plus loads of noodles and aspect dishes too!
For now, let’s begin on the.. begin. And meaning.. their signature dishes!
That is simply ONE of their signature Don at Sora Boru – the Volcano Don!
A mattress of Japanese rice is topped with skinny, tender slices of beef that are flame-grilled contemporary with every order! The meat is topped with a chili sauce (that kinda simulates the volcano lava lah!) that’s somewhat spicy and somewhat candy. You may select both beansprouts or stewed cabbage to complete off this superior bowl.
I REALLY liked the meat on this one. Tender and flavourful particularly with the sauce. I used to be conflicted whether or not I ought to eat the rice and meat individually or simply combine all of them up (kinda like Korean Bibimbap model). However then once more – get pleasure from it as you want as a result of there is no such thing as a proper or incorrect 😛
On the different finish of the spectrum, now we have the Snow Don. It’s not named after your favorite Sport of Thrones character however quite for the toppings that adorn the highest of this ‘mountain’.
Japanese Rice together with your selection of greens and once more topped with freshly-torched beef slices. This time, as an alternative of the fiery crimson sauce, you get a white creamy sauce that’s really fairly milky (that’s the easiest way I can describe the flavour LOL). Additionally they add Parmesan cheese (like macam snow!) which supplies a pleasant distinction of salty and candy.
That is one other a type of occasions when I’ve a tough time deciding which one to order as a result of they’re each so good. Usually I’d order each however the Common Measurement ($13.50) serving is fairly beneficiant! Fortunately, they’ve a Mini Measurement ($7.50) which is nice if you happen to wanna order an even bigger number of dishes!
If you happen to’re a lover of Unagi (like Ross from Pals ?), you’ll be comfortable to know they’ve a very good Unagi Don at Sora Boru 😀
The Unagi has no traces of any fishy flavour (which I’m certain you’ll agree is tremendous vital lah) and a light-weight coat of Teriyaki sauce provides it that salty-sweet kick we love. Served with some Tamago strips atop a mattress of rice. I’m certain you don’t want me to remind you to get pleasure from this whereas hot-hot and shiok-shiok 😛
Right here’s certainly one of my private favourites from our meal. It’s not likely a traditional but it surely combines a few of my favourites parts in a rice bowl!
Y’all is perhaps conversant in the traditional Chirashi Don proper? It’s principally a rice bowl topped with chopped up fish/seafood (generally Salmon and/or Tuna) together with different goodies like cubed Tamago and cucumber for a contemporary end. Properly, at Sora Boru, they take it a stage up 😀
The Bara Chirashi Ebimayo Aburi Don is your fave Chirashi Don however topped with – Mentaiko! Okay lah in order that they’re calling it Ebimayo Aburi however you realize and I do know that Ebiko + Mayo + Torch = MENTAIKO! 😛 And what a brilliant scrumptious serving this was. Tremendous sedap and further Ebiko on high for good measure.
Any followers of Japanese Kare in the home? You’ll in all probability know it may be fairly difficult to search out an genuine serving of Halal Japanese Curry some occasions. With at the very least 7 completely different Kare dishes at Sora Boru, maybe you would possibly discover your new favorite right here.
We had the Breaded Ebi with Shabu Beef Curry Don which I’d thought of a fairly up-sized serving since there are TWO proteins to get pleasure from. Very filling! 😛 Japanese Curry historically tastes like your customary curry however extra on the creamy and candy aspect so that you’ll get fairly a distinction of flavours right here.
Apart from this one, you may additionally contemplate the Breaded Salmon with Shabu Beef Curry Don, Rooster Katsu Curry Don, Rooster Karaage Curry Don, Breaded Ebi Curry Don, Shabu Beef Curry Don or the Breaded Salmon Don to satiate your Japanese Kare cravings.
One of many extra fascinating choices at Sora Boru is the possibility to CREATE YOUR OWN CHIRASHI BORU! You name the photographs are you construct your individual rice bowl from scratch 😀
First select your dimension – both Mini ($9.50), Common($13.50) or Massive ($16.50) after which your base of both Sushi Rice or Blended Greens. Subsequent, you possibly can select your fish – both Salmon, Scallop, Tuna, Octopus or Swordfish. If you happen to’re feeling additional hungry, you possibly can add additional servings at $3.50 every.
Add-ons are subsequent with lots on the road together with Hanjuku Egg (MUST HAVE!), Tobiko, Tamago, Kani and Edamame amongst others. Final however not least you select your sauce – both Sora Soy Sauce (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!), Sesame Sauce or Spicy Sauce. End off together with your Garnish specifically Roasted Sesame Seeds, Spring Onions or (our private fave) Tempura Crumbs.
You may just about go as loopy as you want and create your ULTIMATE CHIRASHI BORU lah like this LOL 😛
You’ve in all probability loved Soba in its extra frequent type – as a chilly noodle dish. However have you ever ever loved it as a scorching dish? I’ve solely had the possibility to get pleasure from it as a scorching noodles dish in KL.. effectively, till now at the very least. So if you happen to’ve been laying aside your Soba expertise since you dislike chilly dishes, right here’s your likelihood!
You may get pleasure from it by itself or go for the set with the Rooster Katsu. The Rooster Katsu is superior, crispy, deep-fried goodness so after all we’re gonna suggest that 😛 And if you happen to’re a traditionalist, they’ve obtained Chilly Cha Soba too okay don’t fret.
Whereas they do have a number of Sashimi choices on the menu at Sora Boru, they don’t even have any Sushi. Properly, really they kinda do ah 😛
The Sushi Keiki is strictly what it appears like – a Sushi Cake. You’ve obtained a Sushi Rice base (with some Ebiko blended in) together with your selection of both Tuna Mango, Salmon Avocado, Crabmeat Tamago or Chirashi as a topping. It’s really actually artistic (and nice to your IG Feed LOL). It could appear bizarre at first but it surely’s nearly as good as any Sushi you’ve had. However that is in kinda like a cake type lah.
At this level, we wished to maintain going however we have been really getting actually full LOL However we couldn’t miss out on a number of of their considerable Facet Dish decisions.
They’ve obtained a number of sizes for the Garlic Fried Rice so you possibly can order to share and pair with quite a few different dishes too. We’d extremely suggest the Crispy Salmon Pores and skin with Egg Mayo Dip 😀 Though I did discover the pairing with Egg Mayo Dip (as an alternative of a Mayo or Wasabi Could Dip) a bit odd, it completely went nice lah!
You may’t go incorrect with extra conventional faves like Chawanmushi and Miso Soup after all. Others like Edamame, Saba Shio and Rooster Gyoza are only a few we missed out on for this go to. To be trustworthy, if we had the remainder of the meals we wished on the menu, it’d be sufficient for an entire separate publish! 😛
The menu decisions at Sora Boru are considerable. I’m fairly certain there are various decisions for everybody to get pleasure from. From artistic new dishes to classics we’re all conversant in, it’ll really be arduous to withstand ordering half the menu or much more! So collect up the gang and feast when you lepak and catch up at Sora Boru.
