omgosh i was so full after this buffet! i got terrible indigestion and couldn't sleep at night cos of that :( haha but the buffet was GOOD!!! don't get me wrong haha. i thoroughly enjoyed it. just that i think too much of good food just doesnt have a good effect on me. oh wells.
fat juicy prawns! that's the kind of fresh seafood you get at kushin-bo, with all the other stuff like mussles, clams and crab legs. i loved the myriad of sauces that came with the seafood. i drowned my mussels in lime and sweet chili and it was DELICIOUS. and the crab legs were super fun to eat! hahaha. honestly, my sisters HATE crab, but they had a whole lot of fun using the utensil to poke the meat out from one end of the hollow crab leg. when it's so easy to eat, of course it's delicious xD the salad bar was also really interesting, with a whole variety of salads (none of the boring veggies) like smoked duck salad, potato salad, SWEET POTATO salad (this was really interesting!), pumpkin salad, turkey bacon salad (haha so should you feel sinful or healthy i wonder?) and a couple of others.
there was also a teppanyaki counter, where you could order stuff and they'll cook it for you on the spot. i tried this egg wrap thingy which was really delicious! :) and there are also marinated like chicken teriyaki (not really good cos it was pretty dry) and all sorts of tempura (i LOVED the soft shell crab! it was beautifully done).
the sushi too was pretty yummy, with sufficient variety. i must always restrain myself from eating too much carbo at buffets. if not i'll just feel soooo full. there are also dishes around to try, but i wasnt very impressed by any of them. the soba looked goooood! but i was trying to cut down on the carbo so i didnt try it :( sighpie. and i heard that the ginseng scallop porridge was good too! hmm coming from my sis who doesnt really like the taste of ginseng (and she said that it was rather mild), i suppose you can give it a shot even if you dont like ginseng either?
one super interesting feature at this buffet were the little green teapots of soup! it was sooooo cute! :) and the broth inside was really flavourful :)
i also enjoyed the japanese soup in that kind of paper pot (omg i suddenly forgot what it's called!!). it was so healthy :) chock full of ingredients like cabbage, tofu, carrots, fishcake and glass noodles, it was such a wholesome dish.
lastly on to desserts! :D there was such an exciting range of goodies that i just HAD to try everything!!! even though i was super full already >.< i loved the fondue machine - there were quite a number of different cookies to go with it! :D and there were chocolate cakes, mango cakes, peach tarts (loveeee!), creme brulee, tiramisu (DELICiOUS! super rich though! and possibly the cause of my insomnia that night) eclairs, different types of chocolate, cupcakes, jellies, etc. so many to try!!! super awesome :)
and one more thing! the restaurant has this 'special offer' thing every one hour or half an hour or so, where a special dish is introduced, and it's only limited to 20 portions! my family got to eat the cheesy lobster!!!! fastest fingers first! go go go! :)
