Very affordable dons with burpple beyond although there’s nothing to shout about. I don’t quite understand the “special” marinade situation - it was very salty and gelatinous - it didn’t compliment the rest of the dish.

The chirashi and the salmon were fresh and well-seasoned with huge chunks of tamago. The bowl was generous with salmon roe (my favourite!) and I liked the spicy kick from the mayo sauce. I must say that the star of the night were the oysters - $2 for each oyster with the condition that an alcoholic drink is purchased for every half a dozen during happy hour. As they say, go shuck yourself!

I loved the ambience of this place, it has huge glass windows overlooking Orchard Road and ION’s lights. This katsu set came with Japanese rice, a jellyfish side dish, radish and miso soup. The pork katsu was crispy and tender on the inside and I liked how the radish was a great palate cleanser. My favourite part of the dish was the salad - I love love love Japanese salad, especially when you get your own jar of sesame dressing to drizzle to your heart’s content.

This was a basic personal hotpot set with your choice of meat (beef/ pork), enoki mushrooms, Chinese cabbage, tofu and glass noodles. You can choose from three different types of soup - Sukiyaki (which comes with an egg), Dashi and Spicy Miso. The set comes with a bowl of rice, Japanese salad and a choice of drink.

The restaurant is having a promotion now where you get a free instant ramen packet on purchase with any of their hot pot sets. You can cook it on the spot in the hotpot should you still be hungry or choose to take it home!

This dramatic package lives up to its name 🤤🤤🤤 Torched slices of aburi on top of unagi and avocados nestled within the rice rolls, drizzled with a creamy shiok sauce of mentaiko and mayonnaise. Really very shiok 😍

I love Hvala for its aesthetics - it’s such a lovely place to sit down with friends for HTHTs with your favourite matcha treats, although it does get a bit echoey and noisy on a crowded weekend. I prefer the weekdays where the place is emptier, it’s great for some quiet me time to unwind with a warm matcha latte in hand🍵.

Hot or cold matcha? I personally prefer the hot ones but the cold ones look cool when you stir and watch the blend of green and white swirl together!

This sweet potato cake surprised me because I didn’t expect much of it given that their specialities are matcha treats. The sponge is fluffy, with a hint of sweetness from the cream and the sweet potatoes.

sometimes I wish my stomach was just a bit bigger
