Niku Kappo by Watami is a casual Japanese diner. The restaurant’s main focus is its Wagyu beef offerings and its dishes include meat sushi and meat hot pot. We were attracted by the affordable set lunch at Niku Kappo.

Niku Kappo Value Set Lunch

We visited Niku Kappo for lunch recently. We ordered the Wagyu Sukiyaki Rice Set ($13.90) and Wagyu Nikomi Rice Set ($12.90). The sets include salad, miso soup and a drink. We also ordered the Mt Fuji Nabe ($14.90).

Wagyu Sukiyaki Rice Set

Wagyu Sukiyaki Rice was served in a hot stone pot. The rice was topped with rare beef and an egg. We were to cook the beef and the egg by mixing them with the rice. Some sauce was provided to be poured over the rice. The end result was a bit like eating claypot rice; and there were charred rice bits on the inside of the pots. It was a good dish.

Wagyu Nikomi Rice Set

Wagyu Nikomi Rice was also beef and onsen egg on top of rice. Unlike the Wagyu Sukiyaki Rice, the Wagyu Nikomi RiIt was ready to eat when served. The beef was well seasoned and cooked just right. The Wagyu Nikomi Rice was delecious.

Mt Fuji Nabe

The Mt Fuji Nabe was an interesting dish where we had to do some work. It was a hot pot dish with a unique presentation. Slices of beef and pork were wrapped around beansprouts and vegetables to represent Mt Fuji. We thought it looked more like a volcano of sort.

The Mt Fuji was set in a sea of rich broth with more vegetables. Noodles were also provided on a side plate. Once cooked, there was an interesting mix of flavours and it was an enjoyable dish. The portion was large for one person. Fortunately, there was quite a lot of vegetables. Thus, even though we ate a lot we could console ourselves by saying we ate plently of healthy greens.

Good Food Good Value

We enjoyed our lunch at Niku Kappo. The quality of the food was good and the dining space was pleasant. The affordable lunch sets are great value. Niku Kappo must be one of the best spots in Orchard Road for a good reasonably priced Japanese lunch.
