Hey guys! Has anyone watched the Season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones? GOSHHHHH I’m so glad it’s here although I really wish I could binge all 6 final episodes in one sitting ugh. In a way I envy all those people who haven’t watched a single episode of GoT, like they have ALL these episodes waiting to be binged. Jealllll ugh.

I’ve also blazed through the newly-released Season 3 of Kim’s Convenience and 2 seasons of Man Like Mobeen. Both shows offer a refreshing look at the everyday lives of minority migrant communities, using humour for levity. I love both shows so much, please catch them on Netflix if you’re looking for new shows to watch!

Anyway on to food (lol always forcing you guys to read non-food things in my intros) – another short post for you today and it’s about my fave lunch spot, Gyunion!

This logo, taken from their FB page, is way too cool for me. I love it.

Tucked away in the corner of Sunshine Plaza, Gyunion is a cosy little Muji-esque hideout with about 5-6 tables. It can’t fit too many people in one sitting, but somehow my friend and I always manage to snag the last table for lunch. People tend to finish up quickly and give up their seats once they’re done, so don’t worry too much about the wait.  I love the minimalist, super Japanese aesthetic. My phone photo album is so disorganised I couldn’t find a photo of the interior, even though I swear I’ve taken one – but I’ll try next time and update this post with a photo 🙂

Anyway here’s the menu!

My personal fave thing on the menu is the original Gyudon (S$7.90) which features beatifully tender strips of marinated beef over a bowl of japanese rice. I usually get it as a lunch set (+S$2) which includes an onsen egg and a choice of green tea or Coke.

Beef Gyudon (S$7.90 a la carte, or S$9.90 with lunch set) – 10/10 for real so simple and so good

Clearly from another sitting lol. I love these beef stripssss help.

Yummmm the beef slices are always so tender and well-marinated without being overpowering. I would defff recommend you guys always add an egg into the bowl because it just makes every bite that much juicier and more satisfying. They also provide condiments like shoyu, sesame seeds (UNFFF MY FAVE I let it rainnnn sesame seeds on my Gyudon) and chilli powder (togarashi I think?) so you can customize your bowl to your taste.

Over the past few months I’ve also tried the Curry Gyudon (S$7.90) which is really quite good as well but I always find the curry overwhelming towards the end. My lunch buddy LOVES it thoooo ❤

What our usual lunch orders look like LOL creatures of habit

Besides the original Beef Gyudon I also really like the Cheesy Gyudon (S$8.90). It was cheesy but still light enough as to not be super jelak. Quite a solid offering but tbh I really prefer just the original which tastes a lot cleaner.

Cheesy Gyudon (S$8.90) – yummm but can’t beat the original

All in all, Gyunion is just a really great place to get your japanese beef bowl fix unfff. You can check out the Gyumen too which is the noodle series but I always just immediately go for the Gyudon lol it’s toooo gooodddd. Will deff keep coming back here for as long as I can! Service is always so polite and discreet too – love the owners. I hope you guys get to try it for yourselves soon!
