Dining with the unexpected...

I don't really mind stepping into a restaurant full of decorative elements. And it can get pretty interesting when there's....

Since I have a big appetite, I decided to give the buffet menu a good try,
so that I can keep the damage to my wallet to the minimum...

Since most of the starters looked pretty interesting, I ended up trying
quite a lot of them.

'Seasoned Baby Octopus'(日式章魚仔)
Nicely seasoned, this is one of the favorites in the Japanese gourmet
world. And they have prepared it nicely. :D Not too bad for a start.

'Seasoned Jellyfish'(日式涼拌海蜇)
This is equally good as compared to the octopus. The chewy sensation
are simply too superb.

'Mouth-watering Chicken'(重慶口水雞)
Time to spice things up a bit. The chilled slices of spicy chicken
can really spice up my life?.

'Crispy Fish Skin with Salt & Pepper'(瑚盐魚皮)
Not getting the salty and pepperish touch, these crispy fish slices are
pretty nice in texture but pretty bland in taste.

'Fried Tofu with Sweet Chilli Sauce'(泰式炸豆腐)
Not too stingy with the ingredients, the taste is pretty normal but the
the portion is definitely there. In fact, most of the starters over here
comes with a pretty generous portion and great taste. In fact, I could
simply just stick to the starters only.

'Skewered food'('Satay'/'Yakitori'/'串烧')
Most of the 'skewered food' over here are pretty up to standards. Not
only it's chewy, the succulent meat chunks are simply irresistible,
especially those that are marked with a Japanese/local symbol on the
menu. In terms of the texture, those that are marker with the Chinese
symbol isn't that bad, it's just that they have covered those sticks
with a layer of overpowering pepper & salt, which makes it pretty
disturbing.... =.=""

Top: 'Enoki Mushroom'(金针菇)
Middle: 'Eggplant with Minced Garlic'(蒜香茄子)
Bottom: 'Butter Pumpkin'(牛油烤南瓜)
For the health-conscious, they also have a good selection of vegetables
dishes. Not too outstanding, but the taste isn't that bad either. :D

'Saba with Miso'(味噌烤鲭鱼)
Flooded with lots of tiny bones, but the sweet taste of the fish is
there. Just need to be extra careful with the bones. :P

'Japanese Udon'(日式乌冬面)
For the hard core eaters, there's always the Rice and Noodles alternative
too. Though I have given the Udon noodles a try but the use of ingredients
are pretty funky. Not that the taste is bad, it just that it seems to be
more of a Udon version of 'yakisoba'.

Time to make preparations for the last few dishes. Doesn't seems to work
as a Japanese Miso soup. But luckily I have placed orders for the...
'Miso Soup'(日式味噌汤)

Top: 'Coconut Creme Brulee'(椰香蛋塔)
Bottom: 'Cheese Cake'(豆腐芝士蛋糕)
After all the heaty stuff, time to work on the chilly stuff. The smooth
texture of these sweet desserts are pretty nice. I should have set aside a
bigger portion of my stomach for these desserts.

Here's a few photos of their menu. The buffet includes most of the stuff
except for the 'Premium' and the 'Beverages'.

The whole place is decorated with all these interesting action figures
and toys that are the 'in' thing in the past. I wonder how much effort
is needed to prevent people from stealing them.

So where can you give these dishes a good try?
The name of this place would be 'taan Charcoal Grilled Skewers Beer'(炭烤串烧啤酒).
It's hidden in one of the shop houses located along 'Liang Seah Street'.
