Located at the ground floor of Orchard Forum is insta-worthy Hana Japanese Restaurant. Famed for it’s flying Japanese noodles, it has now added a refreshing new authentic Japanese menu.
Premium Snow Bowl $49.00
Lets start off with the ingredients : Engawa, Minced Otoro, Uni, Snow Crab Leg, Ikura Roe, Tamago. This bowl is so drool worthy! I couldn’t help but imagine the juicy sensation of the Ikura Roe popping in my mouth. The minced otoro had a melt in your mouth texture. The Engawa is a very interesting fish texture, gently glazed with the blow-torch, it is extremely flavourful and delicate.
The uni is generously served and though this portion looks good for 2, I’m not willing to share any uni!! It’s all mine! The freshness of the seafood here is incredible, matched with friendly service, who are willing to explain the ingredients.
“Make Your Own” Maki Roll Sushi Platter Regular $39.00/ Premium $59.00/ Cooked $39.00
Here’s another fun and interesting menu item, how about “making” your own sushi? Each set comes with free flow Sushi Rice & Seaweed. Here’s a mixed platter and you can choose what you want in your sushi!
Here’s my open-faced sushi, with my favourite ingredients, salmon sashimi and ikura roe, along with a portion of sushi rice. The seaweed is extremely fresh and crisp in texture.
Dream Catcher $25.00
Here’s a mix of mocktail and a cocktail, made with Green Apple & Passion Fruit Base with the option of Rum. Truly a sight to behold.
Science Experiment $25.00
Want to play more with your drinks, try the Science Experiment out, made with Litchi & Apple Base or Vodka/ Rum. Watch your concoction change in colours and sample the new tastes you are creating!
Overall : The food left me astonished and wanting more. I’m so keen to come back for more Premium Snow Bowl goodness. Not to mention, you can also order food and drinks from the sister establishment Benjamin Browns. So you could have Japanese food and then, over-the-top milkshakes too!
Thank you to Deborah and Roy for the media tasting invite.
