~ HIFUMI - plus all you can eat Appetizer Bar ~

It has been ages since we last visited Plaza Singapura and we were delighted to see more shopping and F&B outlets after it went through major renovation works last year. Japanese food has always been my favourite cuisine but it is usually too pricey for our family to enjoy most of the time.

Hifumi - a newly open Japanese Restaurant, serves a variety of Japanese bento sets which also comes with an all-you-can-eat appetizer bar! Children usually does not have a big appetite and this seems to be a really economic and family friendly dining option.

The bento sets displayed at the counter looks attractive and appetizing as well.

Hifumi has a small appetizing bar offering a couple of dishes like chawanmushi, jelly, cucumber, egg-plant, potato salad etc. Children may not find some of the food at the appetizer bar to their liking but it pretty much kept my tummy 'occupied' while waiting for our main course.

Diners can also enjoy free flow of drinks with an additional charge of $1.99. Soft drinks, coffee and sachets of tea are available.

A point to note is Hifumi provide diners with a black plate each for the appetizer bar. Hubby's plate was full of salad sauce after he had his first round of appetizer and it looked really messy when he went for his second round. It does not taste very nice to place new food mixed with the other sauces. I did not notice the other diners requesting to change their black plates and am wondering if it will be fine to do so. That will definitely raise our dining experience. :)

Here comes our Main Course! Denver has a liking for spicy food and he ordered the Hokkiado curry served with rice. Looks Yummy and he loves it. :)

Pork Katsuni Set for me. Slices of pork cutlet was simmering inside the hot pan with egg and onion.

Hubby chosed the Oroshi Tonkatsu Set and it was interesting that we have to grind the sesame seeds and add into the tonkatsu sauce.

As for Gladys, a simple Kid's udon set is just nice for her.

The portion of the food serving is small but it is just right for our kiddos. The set meals however, did not fill up our tummies but hubby and I were lucky to have the appetizing bar and free flow of drinks to complete and satisfy our dining experience at Hifumi.

Although the taste and quality of the food may not be top-notch, it offers a variety of selection and is value-for-money. We enjoyed our meal pretty much and it will be great to see the appetizing bar beef up its contents and maybe add a few dessert items too. ^_^
