From my experience, Watami's food and service never fail to please us. Going back for more of their variety of food is certainly the thing to do as showing support to them.
And to save the hassle, we choose their Special Set menu at $59 for 2 persons rather than being so indecisive in ordering.Caesars Salad Half w Hot Spring Egg Half
First thought, it was a normal bowl of salad that has hard-boiled eggs. But here, they used soft-boiled egg instead. I can't figure out if they put salad sauce or is the effect of the egg that makes the overall taste just like any other Caesars Salad. Can you imagine when you can't differentiate if it is sauce or soft-boiled egg that is blend/mix with the salad? This is definitely awesome. Everything is good for this bowl of salad, fresh ingredients. What's more can you ask for?Salmon Sashimi
It is never enough when it comes to fresh salmon sashimi. 6 slices for 2 persons. I need about 10 slices on my own. Dipped in the light soya sauce, it is just so perfect.Agetate Atsuage (Deep Fried Tofu)
I still don't understand why they top it with Katsuobushi (or okaka) but anyway as usual like any other Japanese restaurants, this deep fried tofu is crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. But it tastes bland. So what I do is dipped with the soup base of Kankoku Butechige hotpot. The way I have it is just like I'm having Malay food called Lontong. But at least in this way, it tastes a little better than just bland. Try it. Or maybe you can invent another way of eating instead of mine. Ebi Tempura Maki - Main Dish
It is simply just shrimp tempura roll. Nothing to rave about. But for certain, this is just to satisfy our craving for sushi as it has been long since we had it. Okay maybe I should say that the shrimp has a little sweetness on every bite. The shells are kind of soft. Kankoku Butechige - Hotpot
Here comes the hotpot. In their menu, it says that it is some Korean style of army hotpot that serves with pork in it. It comes with a bowl of Japanese rice too. And this is the soup base that I used to dip my fried tofu. You can find 2 types of mushrooms, pork belly, carrot, potato, mini sausage, small amount of kimchi, tofu, beansprouts, instant noodles, cabbage and one special thing and that is Ddeokbokki aka Korean Stir Fried Rice cake. Amazing right? Can you imagine when the soup is boiled, a variety of flavours come bursting in your mouth? The ingredient that made up this hotpot are nice and tasty. Most importantly, fresh!Hotate Butter Yaki - Side Dish
Because being too judgmental, I thought I'm cheated again when it was served up. Small or shrinked scallops. But it tastes good unexpectedly. We never sprinkle with lemon and just have it at its original. The taste is juicy and chewy. The scallops are probably dip in butter batter before pan-frying or just glazing over it with butter. The buttery taste is there.
And we end our meal with a Hot Jasmine Green Tea. Definitely worth the price for this Special Set and you don't have to be indecisive on what to choose. Portion wise is certainly enough for 2 persons. As it all depends on individual taste buds, my verdict may not be convincing but you can try it personally to prove me wrong.
