What is the most terrible thing that can happen to a food blogger?
Encountered bad service at a restaurant?
No, thats part of the dining experience.
Taste lousy and not up-to-the-mark food?
Nah, thats also part of the dining experience.
Entering the restaurant and the waitress told you the place is full?
Blame it on yourself who did not make any reservations.
The worst thing, that can ever, ever happen to a food blogger . . .
Is having no camera to take shots of the delicacy displayed upon you.
Thunder never strikes at the same spot, indeed. The last time to TheFrench Stall, LIC forgotten to bring his camera along, and that was anawful feeling. LIC didn’t expect to encounter the same problem, thistime LIC did bring the camera, only to arrive happily at the entranceof the restaurant and found out that there was no battery inside!?!
Tsk tsk! LIC shouldn’t taken out the battery to charge and forgot toput it back. A dreadful mistake which must be avoid at all cost nexttime.
Beware! Warning! The following photos may look awful, terrible,shocking, ghastly, and lousy to you. If you cannot take any of theexperience, please DO NOT click on “Read the rest of this entry“
The fatal spot where LIC wanted to take a pot-shot of the entrance andto his horror, discovered that the absence of the battery!
Alas, this post on Kuishin-bo will be short due to obvious reasons, LICwas actually working on Absolute Haven but due to time constraint, thispost shall appear before your eyes first. Too many post pending for LICto write, even OT can’t really help : )
The only “slightly more decent” photo, sushi selections
The sushi are all right i guess, nothing to shout about. Quite a wide selections to choose from though.
The tempura section is most probably one of the place where i consumemore, with the exception of desserts (which LIC can’t live without!)The prawn tempura is your normal fried prawn with tempura-flour, itworks for me although i pretty much suspect its only decent in the eyesof Japanese food experts (LIC self-proclaimed he isn’t a avid Jap foodeater)
Kaminabe paper steamboat
Like what i mention during my visit to Waraku, Kaminabe sounds like afoul-word, it still brings back memories from the last visit, hence themention. Paper pot, the vegetables, are all there to absorb theotherwise oily chicken and soup. Thinking back now, Beef should havebeen a better option for Kaminabe.
Desserts - Fruit Tarts
Fruit tarts are LIC favorite! I can pop ten easily into my mouth. Thetarts here are pretty standard i guess, but still give them to me!
There are also some miniature cakes around, chocolate ones, mini oreocheesecakes (really tiny), mini doughnuts in different flavors, quite avariety available.
The chocolate fondue craze might have die down already, but that doesnot means they are not good. Its just that people forgets easily,before long another new craze will appear and the common folks willstart to go after the new hype. Think donut, bubble-tea, luo-han fish,chocolate fondue, well just to name a few.
Total Bill for 2 person during weekday lunch comes up to $46.61 aftertax and service charge. Weekday lunch is $24.80 for adult, and if youOp for the 60 minutes express lunch, it is $19.80 , which we did. Iguess the 60 minutes strategy is more to attract office working people,but we took it since we are really full after an hour anyway.
Actually the difference in price is only 5 bucks, if you go for thenormal price, you got the luxury to enjoy the buffet from 1130am-3pm,which big-appetite eaters should go for. Otherwise if you are workingnear Suntec, or like us where you can finish the meal in an hour, thediscount of $5 although not much, is still rather substantial.
To be honest, the one hour buffet is rather rushed, and if you are thetype that refuse to rush while tasting your food, it is not advisableto take it. But if you know what you are looking for, well just attackthose areas and your effort will be paid off for the $19.80.
Kuishi-bo proclaimed itself to be the Authenthic Japanese BuffetRestaurant, which i highly doubted it. Authentic hardly feeds into whatthey are offering. Nevertheless i believe one sentence should sums itall for Kuishi-bo. Quantity, not quality!
Taste is subjective, if you are not looking for very excellent food, isay the ones at Kuishi-bo are quite decent, and definitelyvalue-for-money since its only $19.80. But if you are into Japanesefood, i’m afraid the visit will disappoint you greatly. Nonetheless,comparing Kuishi-bo to Sakura International Buffet, and Sakae SushiBuffet, i still say Kuishi-bo slightly edged out both the latter.
Many acquaintance mentioned that Kuishi-bo’s standard has vastlydropped from last time, a pale shadow of what it used to be. Well,sometimes you have to experience it for yourself to conclude. I did,which is the reason for my visit to Kuishi-bo. Thus, Yay or Nah, make atrip down.
