Savor the Best of Japan with Hokkaido Sushi’s Hokkaido Buffet Experience

We know a quality buffet when we see one. Thick slices of the freshest sashimi fans out delightfully – tuna, swordfish, octopus, yellowtail, and the local all-time-favorite, salmon belly, alongside pinched wads of wasabi. The waiter has yet to set the plates down, but already we can barely sit still.

Truly a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, 120-seater Hokkaido Sushi rolls out The Hokkaido Buffet Experience – a feast fit for a king, if we dare say. Take your pick from their menu and have the dishes served directly to your table – you’ll never have to worry about popular dishes running out at self-serving buffets.

Seafood at Hokkaido Sushi is handpicked by the chefs themselves and flown in from Japan twice weekly. Its freshness is apparent in every bite; its flavors, thick and lush. 

Easily one of our favorites, the pitan tofu (century egg tofu) is a dreamy combination of sweet crab meat atop silken tofu drenched in a sweet century egg dressing, ebiko adding a textural crunch to the dish. Obviously the star of the menu, we recommend saving stomach space for multiple servings – you won’t be stopping at one.

Using only premium organic Japanese Nanatsuboshi rice, Hokkaido Sushi ensures quality sweetness with every bite. We best enjoy it in the salmon mentai abulin, garlic miso ebi, and Hokkaido maki, to name a few.

High on our list is the ika geso (deep fried squid); its satisfying mix of fragrant crisp batter and tender meat perfect with an ice cold beer.

Every buffet diner at Hokkaido Sushi is comes with a complimentary platter of botan ebi alongside salmon belly and hotate (scallop), but the star of the show has to be the thinly sliced of tai (sea bream) topped with truffle and spring onion – absolutely remarkable.
