Hanabi Restaurant, Odeon Towers Singapore

As promised, my dinner on the first night in Singapore. After some direction and mis-direction from Uncle Nic. I've finally able to meet up with him and XLB in City Hall MRT station. We then walked down to Odeon Towers to go for Japanese ala carte buffet in Hanabi Restaurant & Sake Bar. Lucky Uncle Nic made reservation already because the restaurant is almost fully pack.

Hana(Flower) bi(Fire) means Fireworks

For $33 (RM 77) you get to order ala carte from the ala carte buffet menu from 6pm until 10.30pm. Since we only reached the place at only about 8pm (partly my fault of not knowing the directions and a low batt mobile phone) , we got about 2 and a half hour to devour the food. Oh, it comes with free green tea.

The menu, there's front and back. You can imagine the choices that they have.

Uncle Nic's Zaru Soba

Negi toro maki

Buta kimuchi (Pork with kimchi)

Sashimi moriawase (Salmon, yellow tail, octopus, squid, tuna, and white fish)

Salmon sashimi. XLB's KPI for Japanese restaurant.

Agedashi Tofu. Not too bad.

Er..forgot. XLB what's this already?

Shishamo yaki. You can skip this.

Saba shioyaki (salt grilled Mackerel). Recommended.

Unagi sushi. Taste ok but size too small. Well can't expect much from buffet.

Some unagi roll. Sorry, XLB ordered so I don't know the name.

Eel fried rice.


Grilled salmon.

Tonkatsu. (Fried pork with bread crumbs) A bit too thin and dry.

These are just 50% of the food we ate. I literally was 7 month pregnant after the dinner. Some hit and misses here and there but for $33, this is so worth it. There's also ramen, and tataki that I didn't take the picture because there's just too much food on the table. Very lazy to shoot all. Uncle Nic should have more pics. Thank you Uncle Nic and XLB for bringing me to dinner.

Oh by the way, remember there's no ground floor in Odeon Towers. No. 1 means ground floor already. So don't go to the lift and press 1 to go first floor, once you are in the building, you're already on the 1st floor.
