I’m pretty sure we all know and love the bustling Lau Pa Sat, catering to office folk and tourists alike in the heart of the CBD. Nonetheless, it’s a known fact that it isn’t host to many affordable food options, and when something’s affordable it usually isn’t the most exciting.
What if I told you that you could have the best of both of these worlds? Nestled in Lau Pa Sat, MaFe Takibi is a Japanese stall that offers up restaurant-quality donburis for only S$5!
The stall is a relatively new addition to the hawker centre, having opened just last December. It boasts a great lunchtime deal, with S$5 donburis up for grabs from 11am to 2pm on weekdays. Do note that there is only a limited number available!
The promotion is applicable to the Chicken Donburi, Dory Fish Donburi and Beef Donburi. Each bowl stars the grilled meat of your choice atop a bed of fluffy Japanese rice with an onsen egg on the side.
Topped off with cucumber slices and seaweed shreds, the donburi is then served to you with a complimentary bowl of miso soup!
With takibi in its name meaning ‘bonfire’ in Japanese, the stall also specialises in a wide variety of fire-grilled skewers. I can already imagine the smoky aroma wafting into my nostrils.
Priced affordably from S$1, some skewers you can get here include Chicken Skin (S$1), the classic Teriyaki Chicken Thigh (S$1.50) and even Angus Beef Balls (S$4).
Other noteworthy menu items also include the rustic Soba Miso (S$10.80) and Tamago Sando (S$5.90) which is only available from 10am to 11.30am.
If you don’t want to miss out on a fantastic value-for-money Japanese lunch, take this as a sign for you to grab your co-workers and dash to Mafe Takibi to get your hands on their delicious donburi!
