'I'm going for $33 Sashimi buffet at Hanabi tonite', announced my colleague.
I immediately lost control and was literally pulling his collars.
'Buffet? Sashimi? For only $33? WHERE???'
Since then, I have visited Hanabi 3 times in a month.
The first visit was with Simon and Uncle N where I forcefully changed the venue from Ma Maison to Hanabi.
The second visit was with my friend who came down to visit me and I forcefully fixed the meeting venue at Hanabi.
The third visit was with my bunch of colleagues for birthday celebration and I forcefully set the celebration venue at Hanabi.
My intention was pure. I just want my sashimi.
Imagine free flow of Sake, Maguro, Tako, Hamachi and Ika which were surprisingly fresh. The quality of the food served and the freshness of the ingredients were way beyond expectation at such affordable pricing.
Another plus point is their ala carte style where we just have to place our order and wait to be served. The extensive menu drives me crazy everytime I look at it, from sashimi, sushi, maki, temaki, teppanyaki, yakitori, ramen, udon, soba to japanese curry. Too bad desserts are not included in the buffet, or else I would have walloped 10 scoops of matcha ice-cream for each visit.
The pictures were taken during my colleague's birthday celebration. For the whole nite, I was busy juggling with sashimi and photo shooting. For more food pix and description, kindly refer to Simon's review.
That nite we were the noisiest & craziest bunch in the restaurant. Shooting photos like nobody's business.
But we really had fun that nite and most of us have problem sleeping after the dinner. Probably due to the high level of endorphin released.
I now declare Hanabi as the official meeting venue for those who come down to visit me.
