i had some misunderstanding with the pricing of this place! :/ on a food blog that i saw it, and when i called to make my reservation, i was told that the set for 4pax was priced at $120. but i got a shock when i finished my dinner that day - the price for the set was $130! so yup, just take note of that. but the food was pretty good though!
when i called to make my reservation for mothers' day, the staff asked me whether i would be ordering the set since i enquired about it. when i told them yes, they said they would prepare it for me beforehand. and so when i arrived at my table, there was this steamboat all set up and ready! :)
okie here's what's included in the set:
chicken minced hot pot
sashimi - tuna, salmon, yellowtail, swordfish, prawn
kushiyaki - wagyu beef with oroshi ponzu, chicken thai with leek, chicken minced with plum pulp, asparagus wrapped pork belly, enoki mushroom wrapped bacon
there were lots of ingredients in the chicken minced hotpot. besides the minced chicken (which the waitress helped us roll and put into the pot), there were also chicken slices, tofu, an abundance of veggies and mushrooms. the soup was absolutely delicious - plus the fact that it's supposed to have collagen inside ;) hehe bonus!
there was a complimentary appetizer, which was fresh cabbage with a fragrant bean paste sauce. it was so clean and refreshing and felt so healthy!
the caesar salad was tasty and i loved the bacon chips that came sprinkled on top! they were crispy, bursting with flavour and complemented the salad perfectly.
there was a pretty wide selection for the enmaru roll toppings, and the filling was so interesting! it was filled with pickled beetroot and other stuff, and it had a very refreshing taste. all the sashimi was nice and fresh too!
the kushiyaki was a set of five different grills, all interesting in their own way :) i liked the wagyu beef the most, which was bursting with a strong meaty flavour. the chicken minced with plum pulp came in the form of meatballs, that were succulent, savoury & sweet at the same time. the asparagus and mushrooms wrapped in bacon provided each other with a good contrast that was well balanced on the palate.
overall, the set provided a good selection of the restaurant's offerings. and for the five of us, it was more than sufficient to fill us! the service was pretty good too - the staff were super friendly and even gave mummy a flower for mothers' day! :) the set is available till the end of may/june if i'm not wrong, so you can try it out! :)
