The best thing for tonight got to be none other than the meaty and juicy crabs. With every bite, you could taste the natural sweetness of the crabs. Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on it for a refreshing taste and smell. Its heavenly outlook has already scored full marks even before I tasted it.
I started my meal with a very warm abalone ginseng chicken tonic soup to re-energize my body. The bowl is specially imported and designed to look like Korean bamboo. Inside the soup, you can find a meaty abalone, ginseng, chestnut, red date and ginko nut.
If you are a desserts lover, you may even consider coming to Todai just for its desserts. There are way too many variety and each piece is usually cut into quite a small piece so you could take many different ones to feast on.
Apart from those ready made desserts, you could also squeeze your own yogurt / ice cream into a dessert bowl and add the toppings available to create your very own masterpiece. The Macaron Pyramid stands out though the actual Macarons themselves tasted average.
The mushrooms were way too creamy but the fried rice was surprisingly a good hit because it’s simple and cooked to quite a soft standard.
I was too lazy to pick out the bones from the fishes and hence I did not try them. However, looking at its alluring appearance, I believe they do taste good on their own.
Finger food like fries and nuggets are a classic choice. You get to top it off with the sauces available for a special tinge of taste though.
Guess what, I even ta-paued back the crabs because there were way too many of them and we could not finish. It’s just my Singaporean spirit showing its true colours – got free food to eat, still got free crabs to ta pau. Si bei wu hua!!!!!!! Their king crab, red crab and alaskan snow crab are extremely cold and fresh.
I’ve a bad habit of digging out the ingredients of the sushi and leaving out the rice so that I don’t get too full with all the carbohydrates. Oh man, I need to change this habit and stop wasting rice!
Korean pancakes were crispy but greasy. Hence, I believe it could be improved on with less oil. Appearance wise, it wasn’t that visually appealing as well. Maybe it would be good if they could add some designs or change its shape?
As fresh fish was used for the korean fish pancake, it tasted much better. As for the pizzas, the extremely thin crust made it less filling for the stomach to handle and hence more space for other food.
Apart from being an international buffet restaurant, Todai also claims to position itself as a sushi buffet restaurant and that explains why there are a whole lot of variety of sushi for you to choose from.
I did not taste the classic picks as my stomach was so small that I could only fit in the special flavours of sushi that could only be found in Todai.
Cakes were good and not too sweet.Chocolate muffin’s way too dry and it’s the worst muffin I’ve had. Thankfully, the friendly management seemed to have caught our hint and feedback and has also promised that they will definitely improve on it.
The 9 of us dined at Todai’s Private Dining Room which is large enough to accommodate up to 12 pax.
Thanks again hungrygowhere for having me at the table.
