Kuishin Bo has re-opened in the revamped North wing of Suntec City with a much bigger space than before, as well as some interesting seasonal buffet theme.
What’s new: It is refreshing to find out that the Japanese buffet restaurant has launched quarterly thematic buffet spread to showcase the highlights of the cuisines from various regions of Japan. Afterall, Japanese food is more than merely sushi and sashimi as each region from Okinawa and Kyushu in the south to Sapporo in the north vary widely in their specialisation of Japanese food. Each quarter will include about 20 seasonal items in addition to the standard buffet spread of seafood, sashimi, sushi, paper hotpots, grilled and fried foods, and desserts. When: From 6 July to 27 September 2015, the quarterly theme at play is Kyushu and Okinawa cuisine.
Buffet Highlights: The exclusive Kids Haven corner to Kuishin Bo Suntec City, decorated with Japanese cartoon characters and boasts kids-friendly dishes such as Chicken Ragout Spaghetti, Chicken Karaage and Curry Cream Baked Rice, in addition to irresistible snacks like popcorn and DIY ice kacang. During dinner slots, there is also free flow of Zuwaigani (snow crabs) hourly “specials” of limited quantities, such as Japanese desserts and abalone.
Seasonal Highlights: Mentai Takana Chahan from Kumamoto, Kyushu (fried rice with cod fish roe) and my favourite snack from Miyazaki in Kyushu as well, Chicken Nanban (deep-fried free-range chicken with tartar sauce). It sounds like normal fried chicken but this version reminded me a little of the delicious ones I had in Beppu, Kyushu as well.
Panda’s top pick: Salmon sashimi is always my favourite and the first I go for in a buffet. Glad that the ones here turn out fresh, which are imported from Norway. For something comforting, we say go for the Ginseng Scallop Porridge or the Beef Sukiyaki Hot Pot, it will surely warm your heart, and stomach.
