Irodori at River View Hotel has an a la carte all you can eat buffet with very fresh sashimi, but make sure you make a reservation at least a week or two in advance to be able to get in.

I’m sure many of you have eaten hot pot from a Chinese restaurant but how many of you had ever tried Japanese hot pot? With the recent opening of DANRO by Ministry of Food (MOF) about two months back at NEX shopping mall, you won’t have to travel to the land of the rising Sun to have a taste of speciality hot pots from different regions in Japan. It claims to be the 1st Japanese Hot Pot buffet restaurant in Singapore so I thought it would be very interesting to check out last night with 9 of my best friends.

 

When the hot pot was served, the first thing that caught my eyes was the Kiritanpo Rice Skewers which comes together with each hot pot. Cooked rice is pounded until it is mashed and formed into chunk around the skewers then toasted on the outside till it is golden brown. This is a traditional dish commonly eaten in the Akita Prefecture.

 

Similar to many of the other hot pot restaurants out there, you can choose up to 2 soup broth for each hot pot specially created by Head Chef Sonoda-san. With 8 nabemono broths from across Japan to choose from, you will be spoiled for choices as each have their own style of soup base. However, the more popular ones are from:-

  • Nara (奈良) – Chicken and Milk Broth
  • Toyko (東京) – Tonkotsu Broth
  • Shikoku (四国) – Chicken Spicy Broth
  • Fukuoka (福岡) – Chicken Paitan
  • Akita (秋田) – Wafu Broth

The other broth choices include Hokkaido, Koyoto and Osaka.

I had the Tokyo broth which was prepared by boiling pork bones for many hours with a traditional Kyushu secret recipe. I found it very rich and overpowering in flavour after a while after the broth evaporated after some time and I prefer the Akita Wafu Broth made using miso which was lighter in flavour.

Unfortunately, only the Wafu broth can be refilled while the rest will only be refilled with normal chicken soup as a cost-cutting measure.

 

There were a number of variety of dishes to choose from and they are quite similar to some of the hot pot restaurants out there which has some Japanese influence in it. The selection include seafood, meat, vegetables, appetizers, sushi and desserts. The few Japanese items like salmon and hamachi kama, crab surimi, Japanese fish cake and shoyu marinated pork ribs and diced chicken failed to impress me.

 

Perhaps the main draw was the sliced shabu shabu pork and beef which are all hand sliced by the chef every day. They are displayed in small quantities to retain its freshness.

 

As DANRO is a family-family hot pot dining restaurant, there are food items which are ready cooked on the buffet line while waiting for your food to cook in the hot pot. Such as this Japanese style “Yong Tau Foo” simmered in shoyu soup base, it will be a hit among children with the bear-shaped Japanese fish cake.

 

The Japanese believe in enhancing the flavour of the food with dips so there are a huge range of selection of condiments and sauces like ponzu sauce, shoyu, goma sauce, spicy togarashi and beaten fresh eggs for you to mix around. However, do look out for the signage on the wall which teaches you how to mix the Japanese sauces properly to compliment your soup and fried food items.

 

My overall dining experience at DANRO was pleasant with the comfortable ambiance, value for money and the decent selection of food.

 

I applaud Head Chef Sonoda-san for bringing in this heart-warming Japanese hot pot culture by introducing their underrated signature hand-made Kiritanpo and keeping the flavours true to Japan.

Weekday Lunch: [Adults - $16.90++] [Children (12 and below) - $9.90++] [ Seniors (60 and above) - $13.90++] [ Students (excluding tertiary) - $14.90++] [Members - $14.90++]

Ito-Kacho, at Mandarin Gallery, is a Japanese yakiniku chain’s first overseas outlet serving black wagyu cuts including flank steak (from $50) and short rib (from $50).

In the same building, new sushi joint Hashida (#02-37 Mandarin Gallery, 333A Orchard Rd.) opens on May 1 and will serve lunch sets (from $80) and dinner courses (from $300).

 

And at TripleOne Somerset, there’s Daruma Ramen (which is sort of Japanese by way of Hong Kong). The place was founded by proprietor Charlie Chan in Hong Kong’s Tai Hang neighbourhood and serves Kyushu-style ramen (from $13) in three flavors: shoyu, spicy and tonkotsu.

Hmmm...interesting, this concept is like the Ramen Stadium in Fukuoka, at Canal City...!

 

for ramen, there's the ramen champion area at bugis iluma. 

 

people vote for the best ramen there and only the winners get's to keep selling their ramen. 

they replace the stalls regularly. 

it's really an interesting concept..

 

and i just found their website:

The best sushi is to be found at  Ishinomaki Grill & Sake Bar at the basement of Palais Renaissance, Orchard Road. Fresh and beautifully made. Not expensive at all considering the quality. Ever since I discovered this place, I refuse to eat sushi anywhere else in Singapore, it is that good.
