At S's request to have lots of Japanese food while back in Singapore for Christmas break, we came here for the A La Carte Buffet $35+++. Managed to get a seat despite calling just a few days in advance, but then it was a cramped counter seat...
Man, did we pig out :)
The complimentary dishes include some sashimi thing -
and the soup in a teapot thing -
The teapot is served without any instructions, but is easy enough to figure out. Only one cup is provided as the cover to the teapot is also a cup. Squeeze the lime into the soup before pouring out. The soup has an interesting taste, I'm guessing it's some kind of seafood broth?...
There are two things that I order by the busload here - Sashimi,
and Ebi Tempura.
The sashimi here is always fresh and the tempura is always well fried and the prawns are of a decent size. I can eat a ridiculous amount of both :D
Something that I tried for the first time and quite liked was the Yasai Salad :
That's tuna bits in the salad... I liked it so much I ate every crumb. I think we even ordered it again :)
The other thing I like here is the Grilled Saba :
And here's some of the other things we ate :
Well, apparently I didn't overeat coz I didn't get indigestion that night :) Still one of my favourite places to go for Japanese buffet. If you plan to come here, make a reservation at least 2 weeks in advance.
