The Cube Hot Pot 千里香火鍋


Dinner was at The Cube Hot Pot 千里香火鍋
Shop 90 Sunnybank Plaza Shopping Centre
Sunnybank


Hot Pot (火鍋) aka Steamboat
is a popular dish during winter
deli-thin sliced meats, vegetables, mushrooms, wantons, seafood are placed into a simmering stock (in the middle of the table); usually eaten with dipping sauce
Soup stock can come in many variations
Here we have Herbal (left) and Numb Spicy 麻辣 (right)


Fun Fact: It is said that more than 1,000 years ago
Mongolian soldiers cook hot pots in their helmets




Om nom nom
This is not the best Steamboat I've eaten
but what is winter without hot pot?

HOSOKAWA Restaurant (Hamilton)


Dinner was at
HOSOKAWA Restaurant

53 Racecourse Road
Hamilton


The restaurant has very limited seats and is always crowded
Reservation is advised


I reckon this is the BEST and MOST AUTHENTIC
Japanese Restaurant in Brisbane
Do bring a Japanese friend to verify!
Its scary to eat here if you are a food enthusiast
cos it feels like you are eating in Japan (no joke)




House Sake
$9.90/each


We have the honor of having Tim哥
to serve us Sake over dinner


Sashimi Platter
$32
The seafood are extremely fresh
Also there are no signs of "veins" meaning
they only use the good flesh parts of the fishes
Also, sashimi is of accurate and consistent thickness
with clean cuts; presentation is disciplined
Very impressive


Yasai Nimono
$12
Well-prepared dish
I was very touched cos I haven't had lotus roots
for more than 2 years


Beef Tataki
$12
Extremely tasty prime beef slices
Must-try!


Sushi Platter
$32
Nigiri technique is unmatched
The outside is firm but inside is soft and airy
This cannot be done by chef with less than 3 years experience
Sushi are a'la minute, not the sloppy type you find in conveyor belt bars


Tempura Moriawase
$24
Clean batter, no complains


Tamago Sushi and Unagi Temaki
$6 and $8
Very well prepared
and the unagi is well grilled


Special thanks to Yasuko for her recommendation

Nudo's on Mary (CBD)


I'm here today with Libby Chong at
Nudo's on Mary

Hainanese Chicken Rice
I like the chicken rice here because
the chicken is of the correct taste, is tender
and the chilli is tasty


Vietnamese Pork Cutlet
This is very tasty too!
