Kiseki Japanese Buffet - Free Flow Sashimi, Tempura, and Seafood. Would you resist this?

It's just obvious to say that Japanese food is quite limited in Singapore, since every 3 - 6 months there would be a new Japanese restaurant in town. However, have you ever heard about Kiseki Japanese Buffet? Probably it quite old though, but there is no reason to skip this because you just need to know how many variation of Japanese comfort food they have. 

No more doubt to say that the location of this restaurant is absolutely strategic, exactly at the Orchard area. Once you arrive here, you will see a long queue and two different row for the reservation one and non-reservation one. Especially when it comes to the weekend, the chance to wait for approximately 2 hours is completely true so reservation is necessary.

As you know there are so many food here could be 30+ variation actually, so just pay attention with this review and take a note for it in order to make your dining experience more satisfying and exceptional.

Talk about the appetizer, we should go with the sushi station. Ranging from Shrimp Nigiri Sushi until Tamago Sushi is all available right here. Perhaps, both type of sushi is the one which impress me more rather than the other. It is just fresh and tasty. Just pair it with the soy sauce or even wasabi for better taste. 

Then, if you can't leave without the friters, i suggest you to try their Karaage and Chicken Seaweed. Both of them is beyond crispy and juicy plus it taste quite salty though.

Well, some of you supposed to be familiar with Chawan Mushi and the one that Kiseki served here is quite good though. It's just soft, rich of toppings and eggy. One bowl is enough actually.

Live seafood is also available here to be paired with cold Soba. For example the fresh Prawn and Clam is always a good deal for me even though it is simple. Since the way i value every restaurant based on how they served a high-quality ingridients and stunning flavour.

Moving on to the meat station, just don't forget to taste Kiseki ultimate grilled chicken and beef. If you ask me to choose one, probably i go with the chicken. It's more tender and rich of flavour.

No. 1 choice in Kiseki is here - Tempura station. A nicely cooked Ebi Tempura, Vegetable Tempura, and Sweet Potato Tempura is available all the time. Look at those golden brown layer and imagine how crispy and juicy is it. Just paired it with the soy sauce for better flavour. I think each of you won't miss this.

Even though they are Japanese restaurant, they still served some Western food like this. Crispy Pizza, ans Spaghetti Carbonara. Both of them taste quite standard but entertaining somehow.

Beware for this Salted Egg Crab, because it is easily sold out. People could argue it doesn't looks good, but the fact that presentation lies really true. The way they cooked that crab is exceptional and that salted egg sauce it's just brilliant which is tasty and creamy. Finally i found different type of Salted Egg dish in Singapore.

Who's up for dessert? They served a plenty selection of cake and ice cream to leave a remarkable dining experience for each of you. My preference could be that Chocolate Swiss Roll and Vanilla Ice Cream with Choco Chips. You can imagine how sweet and soft is it.

Kiseki Japanese Buffet absolutely a good destination for Japanese comfort good with all you can eat (AYCE) system. No wonder the high traffic of people could be seen from far.

Full of Luck Club - The Ultimate Bao Bar In Singapore!

Full of Luck Club is a brand new bao bar brought by Libai Group. Serving a brilliant collection of Bao, wide selection of Chinese food and several signature beverages would be their unique attributes. I bet you won't miss this.

People who are living in West is more easy to reach this bar since they are located at Holland Village area. Once you step in, you will find a modern chinese interior design fused by colourful accessories. Actually they have 2 floor of dining area, and both floor has a similar concept. Perhaps Full of Luck Club capable to serve 50+ people at the same time.

Since they provide you more than 25+ menus, this guide will help you to decide which one is the best deal for you and which part is the most brilliant one. To make it clear, we should start from the appetizer until the main course. 

Salted egg dish invasion in Singapore is completely true. Then, what is the connection with this restaurant? Actually they have the great one that you should try at least one in a lifetime called Crispy Salmon Skin with Salted Egg Yolk (S$ 6.00). The salmon is crispy and crunchy while the salted egg sauce has bring a right saltiness and creaminess texture into it. It is just beyond delicious and brilliant. 

Then, they also have a Golden Sand Corn with Salted Egg Yolk (S$ 4.80) which is a good idea for light bites. Since they served this very fast and taste pretty good somehow.

Avoiding rice and looking for dimsum? Then, Baked BBQ Pork Puff (S$ 5.40) could be your answer. The bun has a right consistency between softness and crispness while the filling is rich and bring more flavour into it. Simple by presentation but not the taste.

As they name suggest, Bao dishes has become their No. 1 strength. It is available in several different flavour which is Salted Egg Yolk Prawn, Kung Pao Fried Chicken, Portuguese Pork Chop and Panko-crusted Portobello Mushroom (Any 2 for S$ 9.80). Some of them has impressed me more than the rest. I could say the Kung Pao Fried Chicken is stand on top of my review followed by Salted Egg Yolk Prawn, Panko-crusted Portobello Mushroom, and last Portuguese Pork Chop. Actually the chicken one is absolutely juicy and tasty. Since i am big fan of salted egg prawn this one is quite good though, the prawn is fresh but the salted egg sauce is less strong and tasty. Probably they need to be aware with this.

While many people keep on saying that meat is irresistible, some of them who are vegan or even can not live without vegetables should do consider about this. Braised Spinach Beancurd (S$ 16.00) by Full of Luck Club as the most simple dish have a really good flavour for sure. Just paired with steam rice to add more calories and make it even warmth you.

Full of Luck Club has proof me how good they are in serving a good collection of Bao and mandatory Chinese food. Even though the price tag is quite high, it is still worthed to try. I will discover more for sure.

Yuet Sang Seafood - Still Looking For Authenthic Salted Egg Chicken?

If you are kind of obsessed with good seafood dishes and authenthic chinese cuisine, probably Yuet Sing Seafood got the right one for you. Especially they are serving until late night, so there is no reason to skip this place actually.

Located at the Chinatown area, Yuet Sing Seafood is trully represent the traditional style of dining. But do not underestimate them, since they already got a several nomination from well-known media in Singapore by serving a good food with affordable price tag.

Start with their classic Sweet & Sour Fish (S$ 14.00). A simple chinese cuisine that taste beyond delicious. I do love how they slice that fish into a thin and soft layer and the complexity between those vegetable with tomato sauce it's just brilliant.

If you ask me to leave Yuet Sing Seafood without their signature Salted Egg Chicken (S$ 14.00), i just don't want. As you know this place has the authenthic one, and it taste beyond delicious. The sauce is rich and intense while that chicken is ultra juicy and tender. The presentation is minimalist. But it's not applicable with the taste.

You should know that Crispy Butter Squid (S$ 14.00) is quite good as well. I just love they cooked that squid until it has a right consistency between texture and flavour. Pretty interesting actually.

I know some of you always looking for the vegetables during chinese dining, probably Hotplate Beancurd (S$ 14.00) could be the answer. It is pretty standard somehow, just fairly entertaining.

For the green one, you can go with Pocay with Garlic (S$ 10.00). This one is nice. It's pretty fresh and aromatic.

Yuet Sing Seafood has impress me so far. But still all you need to taste is their Salted Egg dishes and Sweet & Sour Fish. The rest is quite standard.

Nakhon Kitchen - The Real Superstar In Thai Cuisine!

There is no reason to resist Thai cuisine, especially it comes in good-looking presentation and delightful taste. Perhaps, Nakhon Kitchen served the right one so far. Have you checked it yet?

Located at the Holland Village - a well known area for cafe and bar. Actually Nakhon Kitchen doesn't represent those idea (a fancy or expensive restaurant), but they clearly show me the real definition of good Thai food. Just a small places with long queues on the dinner time.

Rarely start the main course before comes up with the side dish idea. As you can see, this Homemade Thai Fish Cake (S$ 6.00) is looks pretty minimalist, however it is pretty satisfying in terms of taste and texture. I can a little bit of chewiness blend with a right density of meat.

Then, just do pay attention with Honey Chicken (S$ 6.00) by Nakhon Kitchen that looks brilliant and taste beyond delicious. A combination between crispy and juicy chicken with that honey sauce create a whole new dimension of crispiness and sweetness. This one is trully must try.

How about Thai Mango Salad (S$ 5.00)? I do think it sounds simple and interesting. Perhaps my colleagues seems enjoyed much.

For the heavy one, you should go with Phad Thai (S$ 5.00) that taste fairly good. The complexity between tanginess and richness of the spices has reach my sense of taste and it does pretty entertaining somehow.

Personally, i do like Nakhon Kitchen signature dish - Green Curry Beef (S$ 8.00). The curry is rich and tasty while the beef is absolutely juicy and tender. A lot of potential there and only a little of weaknesses. Could you resist this?

On the other hand, their signature Tom Yam Soup Prawn (S$ 6.00) is goes beyond my expectation. But it does spicy actually. For those who doesn't like spicy food, you should go with Green Curry Beef.

For the dessert, just try their Mango Sticky Rice served with Coconut Milk (S$ 5.00). The mango is absolutely sweet, while the coconut milk is fresh and intense. Such a good way to end your meal time.

Nakhon Kitchen is a real superstar in Thai dishes. They served a wide selection of Thai cuisine that comes in a great flavour and affordable price tag. Just do consider about this.
