At one point in time we were frequenting Takumi for their set lunches, I was fond of the scallop sashimi accompaniment. Tonight I was back to try the All You Can Eat BBQ at $49 per head, with an option of a seafood plate at $15 per head. You may re-order as many of everything showcased below (desserts not included) within the allocated one hour.
The grill, an improvement over the stainless steel plates at Seoul House which I do not enjoy, was hot from the close proximity to the coals and everything cooked quickly.
A selection of 3 dipping sauces, the sesame oil with salt was my favourite. I had about 3 bowls of miso soup and a few rounds of the fresh crisp green salad with an addictive sesame dressing.
The other option was grilled vegetables and mushrooms.
Beautifully plated ox tongue, thinly sliced.
Karubi, preferred over the ox tongue, was quite tender and marinated well.
The squid was soft and tender.
Black Sesame Ice Cream ($5.8)
The desserts are not inclusive.
Green Tea Ice Cream ($5.8)
This had a strong milky creamy taste, overshadowing the green tea flavour. The scattered corn flakes added a little crunch. I personally preferred the one at Shoya.
Green Tea Pudding & Ice Cream ($5.8)
The quality and the presentation of the beef is surprisingly good. However, if I have a craving for Japanese BBQ in the future, personally I would indulge in their sets which offer Wagyu Blackmore with a marble score 9+. Quality over quantity yes?
