i've walked past this place a number of times while i was in ION orchard, but i never really went in! i think cos i was always worried that the smell would stay in my hair. haha, oh i havent even introduced the place yet! :P it's a teppanyaki restaurant, where you can sit at a bar counter (like those in japan), where you face the chef in the centre and they'll place your food on an induction cooker in front of you to cook. pretty cool! but we found that it was kinda hard to talk when you're all siting in a row -.- so opt for one of the tables at the side if you wanna have some proper conversation during your meal! haha.
they have these nabe sets that are quite comprehensive! this was my friend's order of the chicken nabe ($10.90). you can chose either the sweet sukiyaki soup (i prefer this!) or the savoury shabu shabu soup. it comes with a bowl chock full of cabbage, mushrooms, tofu, some other green veggies, and your meat on the side, with an egg, salad and rice! not bad eh! i tried my friend's chicken and it had a really wonderful texture! super light and soft :)
i ordered the pork yakimeshi ($9.90) which was a pepper-lunch style of rice in a hot pot with all the yummy ingredients, and it also came with miso soup & salad! the waitress helped me to cook my whole dish.
and it was sooooooo fragrant i couldnt wait to start digging in! excited much! :D the flavours of the egg, juicy succulent pieces of pork, mushrooms and sauce all went perfectly together. the entire dish was bursting with a lovely aroma, and it tasted as good as it smelled :D
even after the smell of the food stuck to me after that, i would say that it was worth it xD
