Still A Pretty Good Japanese Buffet

Full Irodori review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/07/irodori-tasting-session.html


Since its founding in 2008, Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant in Riverview Hotel has been consistently drawing in the crowds with their delicious food made from fresh ingredients, wide variety of Japanese dishes, and very affordable pricing.

Ambience at Irodori combines the traditional zen with minimalist. Oriental touches, clean lines, warm lighting, and wooden panelling in shades of brown and black set a homely tone. Being an ala-carte style buffet also means that Irodori has less furniture clutter around, as well as less wastage of food.

Service at Irodori is very good, and relatively consistent after all these years. The most important service element at an ala-carte buffet is speed; the speed at which orders are fulfilled, and the speed at which empty plates are cleared, both of which are performed very efficiently at Irodori. Staff are unobstrusive, quickly and neatly arranging food that is served, and also quick to clear away dirty plates, both of which require observation and a good amount of courtesy.

Irodori specialises in serving authentic Japanese dishes, mostly small bites, made using only the freshest of ingredients. For about SGD $40 or so per person, prices at Irodori are reasonable for a decent buffet. Here are several dishes I felt most people should sample at Irodori.

You MUST get the Sashimi Moriawase / Mix Sashimi Platter, with its mix of only the freshest fish! Comprising salmon, salmon belly, tuna, yellowtail, mackerel, and octopus, this is the dish you cannot miss! For most value for money, get at least 2 or 3 rounds of this!

A rather unique signature dish, the Green Tea Tofu features a soft, wobbly, cold tofu cube infused with green tea essence, lending a fragrant, fresh aroma. Garnished with fresh cucumber, the contrast of crunchy and smooth textures work very well.

The Ebi Mentai Mayo / Grilled Prawn With Mayonnaise is a signature dish here, being outstanding because of its grilled to perfection texture, with the prawn being savoury and smoky but still slightly moist. The mayonnaise seems to be a seafood infused mayonnaise, with a delightfully umami taste.

The unique Dobin Mushi / Tea Pot Soup isn't a drink, or even a type of tea. Instead, it's a traditional Japanese seafood soup / broth, steamed with shrimp, chicken, soy sauce, lime juice, and matsutake mushroom, then strained. The result is an incredibly tasty and potent clear thin broth that tastes of the land and sea (surf and turf), earthy, fragrant, light, savoury, all at once. A must try for me!

Overall, Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant is still the place to go for an affordable Japanese buffet with a wide range of authentic dishes, without breaking the bank. Communal dining is most encouraged, as are advance reservations because Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant can get very crowded during peak periods.

3 years ago I patronised the restaurant in RiverView, was mad about the ala carte buffet with service that was not in order

3 years ago I patronised the restaurant in RiverView, was mad about the ala carte buffet with service that was not in order. On Deepavali day, my son encouraged me to try again, saying that this branch is different. Worst experience I ever had. Placed an order for 4 pots of tea soup, they took their initative that it was too much for us, gave us two pots. Placed orders for 2 sets of Beef and Pork (kind of stir fry) and mixed Tempura. I kept checking with the waitress that took the order and replied that there were too many orders, waited patiently still did not come in half an hour, asked another waitress to check, never come back with answer. Did not dare to order again, worried that it would come twice. Order other dishes, this order came instead. Went back to the same waitress to check the order again, then finally asked us to order again, therefore one hour later then we got to try those dishes. Will never step into this restaurant ever! The restaurant can confirmed that I made reservation for 4 adult at 12noon, Table 2 and left at 2.30pm due to that order.

Irodori goes to town

After so many years, popular Japanese buffet Irodori has finally moved to a more central location, reaching out to diners looking for good value for money.

With about a hundred items on the menu, I recommend starting with the sashimi moriwase, fresh yellowtail, swordfish, salmon, tuna, octopus and red snapper to indulge in.

For the cooked items, I enjoyed the tori karaage, which had crispy skin and yet chicken cutlets that were able to retain its juices.

A must try is the ebi, or grilled prawn with its roe on mayo - one addictive dish.

Tempura lovers would be happy to note that fresh oil is used in its cooking, so there is no pungent after taste.

If you are into rolls, the California Roll was something that I thought was executed quite well.

Well there you have it, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are a lot more items such as shishamo (fried pregnant capelin) and seared sushi that would whet your appetite. Go in a large group, as this would allow you to try even more variety.

Value for money Japanese A La Carte Buffet

One reason why I like to go for Japanese buffet is the unlimited servicing of sashimi. As usual I started off with the Sashimi Moriawase allowing me to try the different selection of raw fish available for the day. On my plate, I had the octopus, snapper, salmon, tuna, yellow tail and sword fish. The sashimi was pretty fresh and good that I went for another round.

For sushi lover there is a good varieties of Nigiri Sushi and Maki on the menu. There are 11 different Nigiri Sushi available on the menu. I tired the Salmon finger pressed sushi which was nicely balanced with the right ratio of the rice and fish.

The Age Mono or deep fried section of the menu offers an eclectic selection of 24 different items. Among the couple I tried, my favourites were the Deep Fried Marinated Chicken, Age Dashi Tofu and Tempura. The tori karaage was very well marinated with the flavours being absorbed by the meat. The tempura has a light batter giving it the crunch while still allowing one to appreciate the ingredient itself.
