Singaporeans clearly love their buffets and when that is combined with a Japanese theme, it is no doubt going to be popular.
This hungry cow trotted down to Triple Three (which also happens to be the very first entry of this blog more than 6 years ago!) one weekday evening to check out their spread.
A station offering fried goodies served up delicious croquettes....and deep-fried fish sperm. Guess which one is the latter? Moohaha. Unfortunately the fish sperm didn't quite appeal to me with its thick batter and hard, dry erm sperm. Yes, it's complex I know.
While I didn't enjoy the two items I took from the robatayaki section, the roast meats from the opposite counter were moovelous. Think juicy, robust honey-glazed ham, and a succulent roasted Japanese wagyu. A dab of mustard and horseradish balanced the meats nicely.
Go for the Hokkaido potatoes with Japanese butter. Simple but oh so goood.
Also on the above plate were 4 types of salt! I'm no salt-ologist but there were the Persian Blue Salt, Hawaiian Black Salt, Vanilla Salt and Pink Himalayan Salt. The vanilla salt would make a lovely sprinkling over butter and chocolate cookies.
This Hokkaido buffet promotion is only available for dinner ($138++) from 17 to 31 October 2012 so catch it before it flies by- faster than one can say Irasshaimase!
Thanks to Ruth and Crystal of Mandarin Orchard for the invitation.

Chew On This: Try some Hokkaido specials for mocktail and cocktail. Or head to their bar next door for some pretty good happy hours deal before dinner!
