For sake novice, the description provided for each and every sake available should be more than sufficient for you to decide what you want. If you are too lazy to read through everything, you can also ask the friendly staff for recommendation! 🙂

AHHH! Umibudo aka Sea grapes!!! I want to eat that! *KIV-ed

Stove for the hotpot.
One time serving of Prawns and Vegetables Tempura (for 2 pax)
Pardon me for the out of focus pic. Too busy enjoying my food to thoroughly check the photos as I took them! 😛 Great tempura by the way!
One time serving of 3 kinds of Sashimi Platter (for 2 pax)
Very fresh Salmon Sashimi, Prawn Sashimi and Tuna Sashimi thought the tuna has been lightly seared on the outside.
One serving of 3 kinds of appetisers.
Love the flavour and texture of this jelly fish and glad that I get to savour them all by myself as PB has a set on his own.
Cucumber with plum sauce topped with bonito flakes.
Dipping sauces for the shabu-ed meats.
You do not really need them with such gorgeous meats!
Pampering myself with a glass of Yuzu Sake, $15++, and they served 100ml of it chilled without ice. Nice!
Complimentary Wagyu Sushi that is lightly flamed.

It literally melted in my mouth!
Shabu-shabu Assorted Vegetables
Premium Queen Crab, Iberico Kurobuta Pork and Miyazaki Wagyu automatically served.
Been a long time since I ate these crabs!
Close up of the Iberico Pork and Wagyu.
The iberico pork is really too fat for our liking that we did not order anymore after this serving.
The service staff helped to add the vegetables into the hotpot to cook.
Our hotpot buffet spread!
So thin and cook so quikcly! All you need to do it to dip the meat 3 times (or less!!!!) into the broth and it will be done!
Dipping it into the sauce for additional flavour and to lower the temperature of the meat! LOL
1st additional order of 2 portions of beef
Close up of the marbling on the beef.Thumbs up!
Shabu-ed Miyazaki Waygu beef! So tender and really melts in the mouth!
2nd additional order of 2 portions of beef.
Close up of the Round 2 Beef.
Close up of the Miyazaki Wagyu!
The marbling on this portion of beef is impressive!!! If only all of the portions can be like that! 😛
Having a taste of the soup after cooking the wagyu in it. Look at those oil!
Cooking the premium queen crab. Look at those legs!!!!! @@!!
This is the first time I am cooking this crab and got a bit lost as I do not know how long it will take to cook it. It was only later that I learnt we just have to cook it for 5min to enjoy the crab as they are already pre-cooked!
Real crab stick anyone? 😀
Cross section of the legs. So full of meat!
More crab sticks! YUMZ!
Half of the queen crab leg.
So meaty and so worth the wrestling with a broken wrist! LOL
3rd round of beef.
Fats are more concentrate and not that evenly distribute in the meat.
Still tasted great! Just DO NOT cook it to death! 😛
Additional order of the queen crab since the first portion was so enjoyable and it was about time that we wrap up the meal.
Cooked legs, this time, for 5 min.
Look at the meaty claw!
Peek of the crab meat from the shell.
Less cooking time and and the crab tasted saltier than those from the first round – the taste of the sea where these queen crabs live!
The aftermath of our hotpot with a layer of oil from the wagyu. So much so that it was able to reflect the decor of the interior. LOL.. We were so stuffed that we skipped the Japanese porridge that will be cooked in this broth that we shabu-ed our meat in. Imagine the essence of the broth being soaked up by the Japanese grains… WOW.
Something sweet/bitter to round up the meal and it gotta be a matcha ice-cream right! You can opt for the vanilla one if you do not like matcha. But can they give me more than one serving? 😛
Love the warm interior.
Our total damage for 2 person came up to $203.62 (after 10% service charge and 7% GST). The receipt even itemised how much we ate! Definitely worth every cent and recommended to try if you love your beef! Reservations recommended.
