We were there at 6pm on a weekday evening, and since there was no queue (happy!), we decided to have our dinner there. The place look really nice and comfy to chill but sadly only two of us couldnt get to sit on their comfy looking sofa seats which is for a bigger group. Anyway, it was our first time there so was quite excited to try the food.
Being green tea lovers, we ordered the Hot Matcha Latte ($9). I feel it is quite overpriced for this small cup of matcha latte which I can finish in a few sips. But it is really nice, thick and powdery, and I could feel the real matcha taste in it, warm and satisfying! I love it!
I had the Fuwa Fuwa Hoshino Souffle ($15.80). True to its name, it is soft and fluffy, and beneath the fluffy souffle is hot and pipping delectable rice with mushrooms, pork and beef. The waiter told us that all their rice dishes contains beef, if you strictly cannot take beef, avoid the rice and go for the pastas. I don't usually take beef coz I dont like it, but as I wanted to try this Fuwa Fuwa Souffle, I went ahead to order. Anyway, it wasnt too bad, and just a few pieces of beef isnt too beefy either, so it is acceptable. I like the rice, its warm and tasty, real comfort food to me.
My friend had the Lobster Bisque Spaghetti ($16), and it was a very large serving. I tried a bit and it was quite nice, strong lobster taste of the soup and spaghetti. My friend like it and finished every bit of it! We were quite full from our mains, so we had to skip dessert.
As we have not met up for many years and had a lot to chat, we were there from 6pm till about 930pm. I was afraid that they would chase us after we finish our meal, coz we could see queues forming at 7pm. But to our delight, they did not chase us and allow us to sit and chat even after we finish our meal, but well, we still had our drinks with us. Service was quite good too, and they were very diligent in refilling our iced water! So we had quite a pleasant experience on our first visit to Hoshino. The things here are quite pricey especially their drinks and desserts, so I may think twice about coming back again.
