Recently, we discovered Kushiya, a hidden gem at Westgate that serves awesome charcoal-grilled Japanese skewers. It may not be the most prominent eatery on the level, but its modest shopfront belies the delicious food that it has to offer.
Kushiya hails from Taiwan, where it has several branches. The franchise has done very well there and recently expanded its business to the sandy shores of Singapore.
Pork Belly Don – Super Satisfying Dish!
For our main dish, we ordered the Pork Belly Don ($8.90), a mouthwatering bowl of goodness that came with a generous portion of pork belly, rice, egg, seaweed, and kimchi. I picked up a piece of pork belly that was still glistening after being freshly grilled, and put it in my mouth.
It tasted awesome!
The meat was fresh and succulent with a great texture. It tasted wonderfully tender too.
The pork belly went perfectly with the rice and the rest of the ingredients. On the whole, this was a super satisfying dish.
Bacon Enoki Rolls & Bacon Mushroom Rolls – Juicy and Delicious!
We also ordered several of the skewers to try. We simply loved the Bacon Enoki Rolls ($2.20) and the Bacon Mushroom Rolls ($2.20)! Both items tasted every bit as good as they looked. The bacon was really juicy and complimented the smoky fresh flavour of the enokis and mushrooms nicely.
Chicken Leg with Scallions – A Must-Try!
The Chicken Leg with Scallions ($2.60) is a must-try too. The meat was grilled to perfection and tasted tender and savoury. The scallions acts as a nice compliment by providing a refreshing taste.
Shitake Mushroom & Capsicum – Delicious Grilled Vegetables
To mitigate the guilt from eating so much sinful food, we decided to have some relatively “healthy” items as well. The Shitake Mushroom ($1.80) and Capsicum ($1.80) both tasted very fresh and were nice compliments to all the meat we had eaten earlier.
We love discovering hidden gems and Kushiya is certainly one gem that we’ll be visiting very often from now on. With its affordable price and mouthwatering Japanese grilled food, we will not be surprised if Kushiya becomes one of the more popular eateries in Westgate!
