This bowl of fresh, crunchy cabbage was refreshing to the taste. You can choose to eat the cabbage on its own or mix together with the secret recipe dressing, which I thought was very delicious.
The Chawanmushi at Saboten tasted very different from other Japanese restaurants. This one I had was soft and fluffy in texture, somewhat similar to eating a tofu beancurd.
Diners can choose any of the 18 set meals (starting from $14.90), without missing the Saboten signature Katsu. All set meals are paired with a decent portion of the heavenly Katsu, so that you can have the best of all worlds.
Grind the sesame seeds in the bowl with the wooden stick. After you are done with the grinding, scoop some special tonkatsu sauce from the greyish urn into the bowl. Mix the grated sesame seeds and dipping sauce well to enjoy for your Katsu.
Saboten‘s special sauce are made of onions, carrots, tomatoes, apples and over 10 different spices to bring out the best flavour.
There were 5 slices of thick cut salmon sashimi. Each slice were equal in size, it melts in my mouth and I could really taste the freshness of the seafood.
If you enjoy eating Mentai, you should not miss this Aka Ebi (Prawn) Mentai. The prawns were large and spanned the size of the serving plate. They were crowned with Ebi Mayo, and then grilled to perfection. The ala carte side dishes are priced under $10, which is actually quite affordable.
If you are willingly to “cook your own food”, you can opt for Teppanyaki or Shabu Shabu combo.
Beef lovers must order the Wagyu Beef Shabu Shabu and Half Loin Katsu Set. The beef is sliced thinly so that each slice melt in your mouth. There is also a Kurobuta Pork option for those non-beef eaters.
