Last weekend, we have dinner at Rakuzen Japanese restaurant at Pacific Place. This is our second visit and this time I wanted to try the nabe menu. After scanning the menu for a while, I decided to order kaisen kami nabe (assorted seafood cooked in paper hotpot) 95K while SC ordered ebi kakiage jyu (fried prawn and vegetables on rice served with miso soup) 65K. The hotpot is presented attractively in a paper-covered metal bowl, with a small burner underneath. The vegetables, tofu, mushroom, salmon, prawn, scallop, and oyster, among others, are placed on top of the paper and poured with broth. As I waited for the nabe to boil over, I sampled some of SC’s order. It tasted good, but the kakiage reminded me so much of bala bala (Indonesian mixed vegetables fritter). The hotpot tasted delicious too, with fresh ingredients and tasty soup. Although the prices were quite pricey for those portions, I think they’re worth a try. Plus their ocha is free 🙂

    A slightly more expensive sushi tei. Food is decent but considering the price, probably not worth it. I still prefer sushi sei, in plaza senayan.
