My friend was intrigued at this “chicken-looking” meat in the seafood corner, so she asked and was so happy with the answer. ABALONE? She started calling for me and the others …

The abalone was added with some mayonaise sauce on top of it. Love the chewy fresh abalone. Yum!

This is one of my favourite , fried shishamo. There is a dash of salt and pepper at the sides.

These breaded crumbed scallop cakes are delicious. Most of the time, the fried fritters are not my thing because normally they are cold or hard or chewy but since we were one of those first customers that came when they just opened for dinner about 5.30pm, they felt like they were just fried thus, it was exceptionally hot piping yummy!

The buns are ok

The chawanmushi this time…

Photobucket

tasted better…and i found out that there is a seashell at the base. So that is where the flavour came from..hmm.

Photobucket
There is another new addition beside the abalone, this is braised duck.Was leaping in joy when i saw it but it is “hanyir”….(ducky fishy taste) unlike my favourite braised duck here:

Soups (sharks fin and longan dessert soup)-i like!
Photobucket

Look at this gigantic shitake mushroom in the sharks fins soup!

Photobucket

They have these mini cakes..so irresistible looking, that I took almost everything and (notice the choc trails around the plate?)even had the time to show off my artistic side by using the chocolate fondue sauce and “scribbled” on the plate (hehe!)

Photobucket

We went for dinner thus the price per person is about $40.(still cheaper than Carousel).

Okay , for me, this time round, the quality improved greatly (the soups, the fried fritters, the seafood is always as good, and there are new additions like abalone, braised duck, longan fruit, there is another Japanese fish which I did not catch its name beside the shishamo, there were also tiny fish roe ..which i think is caviar, they add it on top of egg salad.

What I enjoyed: Oysters, oysters….cold section: scallops , black pepper crab (but no patience), prawns,japanese hairy peas (i forgot its ori name)then eel sushi (but dare not take much cos will get full easily), sashimi (the 3 types of fish: salmon, tuna and ???) , abalone, soups, fried breaded scallops,fried salmon head, black pepper crab,mini cakes, prawn har-kow, crunchy longans,love the mocha latte and its wide range of tea bags (diy)!

Hmm, best to come when they just opened, the food is fresh and there is less people, no need to paiseh ,and more food for u..hehe!

  1. Hi!

    Do they have a lot of “non-seafood” stuff there? Problem is, both my boys are allergic to shellfish-based foods like clams, prawns, crabs, etc (my wife and i are not). I’d love to take my family there but just wanted to know if they have lots of “other” food too.

    Really appreciate your input. Thanks!

    Btw, i came across your blog when i was looking for halal seafood restaurants. Been reading through your blog and i think it’s a job well done. Hope you con’t as long as you can. Thanks! :-)

  2. Faisal-Yeah, they do have some non-seafood items like choc fondue, ice-cream, cakes…fried fritters but then I think it’s not worth it. This buffet is seriously for the seafood and japanese food lovers.Perhaps, u can try Sakura buffet or Seoul Garden/Bulgogi for ur kids which I think have much more non-seafood varieties.(Or u and ur wife can enjoy the buffet romantically on a date and leave the kids with someone hehhe! )Well, that’s my opinion.Hope it helps!
