En Japanese Dining Bar at Bukit Timah is cosy and super Japanese in design. It’s not a very big shop front and is situated at a corner so the only recognizable features are these.
Their ala carte menu is honestly quite good and their selection of alcoholic drinks is amazing, particularly if you have a thing for sake or Japanese brews. However, their buffet is truly the star attraction. For $48++ on weekdays and $52++ on weekends you get a selection of Shabu Shabu with all the beef you can eat as well as an array of sashimi, salads, appetizers, grilled dishes, deep fried dishes, stir fried dishes, maki, temaki, fried rice, noodles and even dessert. Oh, and it’s an ala carte buffet. Tempted yet? No? Time for pictures then.
This is…the size of hot pot they use for two people. Obviously, they provide vegetables which is the standard cabbage, greens and mushroom varieties typical of traditional Shabu Shabu. Completely refillable too.
Their beef is of a surprisingly good quality. I’m picky with the freshness and variety of my meat and even though I’m not a big eater, I’m guilty of polishing off two plates of beef. I. Just. Couldn’t. Stop.
This is half a portion of their Daikon salad and it’s so refreshing, tangy and addictive I…also finished it on my own. Oh, they charge for food wastage so almost all their dishes have a half portion option. Good to know.
Like I said, I’m not a big eater so I had to pass on 80% of the menu. If you’re tempted to try this place out, here’s their details.
