We love Japanese food not only for the fresh, flavorful Japanese ingredients, but also for the attention to detail in every presentation and artistic performance of chefs.
Have a look at some of our best pics, from Teppanyaki, to Robatayaki, and of course, where to test your chopstick skills; sushi places!
Hamabe combines modern and authentic Japanese cuisine of the very best quality. It features a robata grill, a traditional cooking method used by the fishermen of northern Japan, and a sushi and sashimi counter. But our favourite feature is, of course, the teppanyaki tables to enjoy the theatrics of food being cooked before your eyes. For Teppanyaki they have the options of Teppanyaki Set Course or ala carte. The Set menu comes in two options: Hana Course or Rin Course. Both with nine items on the set, the difference is whether you chose the Lobster and Green Mussel combo, or the Salmon dan Red Snapper combo. So oishiiii!!!
