Delightful Buffet Choices at Kuishin Bo Suntec City + GIVEAWAY!

Media Invite

It seems like we parents always love a good kid-friendly eatery... especially when it involves a sumptuous buffet selection AND a dedicated buffet section solely for KIDS!  

Yes, I shared the a photo of Kuishin Bo's Kids Haven corner on our Facebook page a few weekends ago and the response probably said it all.

Dedicated kids buffet area (with child-friendly height) at Kuishin Bo, Suntec City - with a popcorn machine and mini ice kachang machine no less! Which probably explains the stuffed monkies after that.
Posted by Cheekiemonkies on Saturday, July 25, 2015

Re-opening again after Suntec City underwent a bout of renovation works, Kuishin Bo - the stalwart Japanese buffet brand - has made the third level of the new North Wing its home. In fact, it is located just opposite from its previous location.

More than just a normal Japanese buffet restaurant, and most definitely more than just its catchy trademark jingle, “Dong Dong Dong, 1, 2, 3", Kuishin Bo boasts a staggering line-up running the gamut from sashimi and sushi to yakitori and agemono (grilled and fried food)... enough to make the monkies go wild with excitement the moment they stepped inside the revamped restaurant.

Interior-wise, the restaurant looks brighter and more colourful, with a larger seating capacity. Thanks to the heavily usage of wooden furnishings, the mood is casual and vibrant, yet still retaining that cosy ambience.

And just in case you did not know, the monkies are huge fans of Japanese cuisine. So it was no surprise that they were (okay, me too actually) left in awe when they first caught sight of the Kuishin Bo buffet line which spanned across seven sections – Salads & Appetizers, Sushi, Sashimi & Seafood, Teppanyaki, Paper Hot Pot, Fried Food, Soups and Desserts.

Kuishin Bo sources for fresh imports such as Salmon Sashimi which is easily one of the most sought-after items in the entire buffet line-up. The salmon is imported from Norway weekly and descaled, filleted and despatched to the restaurant daily from its own central kitchen.

The sashimi is pretty decent, not the the best I have had but it was still fresh. The hot food counters fared better though, with the grilled Teppan Beef; Australian Angus Sirloin Beef, and barbecued Lamb Garlic Miso from the Teppanyaki counter being my many faves.

There was also a wide range of made-to-order items, including the paper hot pot which came with 4 different choice of ingredients of chicken, beef, seafood and vegetables. I also enjoyed the Oden, a dish consisting of several ingredients such as daikon, and processed fishcakes stewed in a light, soy-flavoured broth - a bit like our yong tau foo.

Oh, and don't forget to have a bowl of the Ginseng Scallop Porridge as well. With a mild herbal fragrance and generous servings of scallops, the porridge was good enough for Ale to ask for second helpings!

Over 100 items to choose from and still want more? Say hello to Kuishin Bo's latest thematic food fairs showcasing gastronomic highlights from various regions in Japan. Changed quarterly, diners will now find over 20 seasonal items to indulge in; on top of the already extensive range of food!

This time, from now to 27 September 2015, the highlight is Kyushu region, the third largest island of Japan that encompasses seven prefectures including Okinawa, Miyazaki, and Kumamoto.

The slew of mouth-watering delicacies from Kyushu and Okinawa include Mentai Takana Chahan; a dish of fried rice with pickled mustard leaf, sesame seeds and cod fish roe that hails from the coastal prefecture of Kumamoto in Kyushu, Chicken Nanban; free-range chicken from Miyazaki prefecture in Kyushu that is deep-fried then garnished with a special tartar sauce, and Rafute; meltingly tender Okinawan comfort food of pork belly stewed in soy sauce and brown sugar.

But nothing, absolutely nothing, can prevent kids from gravitating towards this section in the restaurant.

Exclusive to Kuishin Bo Suntec City, the Kids Haven corner is filled with kids-friendly dishes such as Chicken Ragout Spaghetti, Chicken Karaage and Curry Cream Baked Rice against a backdrop of vivid-hued masks depicting well-known Japanese cartoon characters like Doraemon and Pikachu, while coloured lanterns and “sakura” flowers dangle overhead.

Best of all, the serving counters in this area are all designed at a child-friendly height so that kids will be able to help themselves to the wide array of food. Yes, even to the DIY ice kacang and popcorn too!

No wonder the monkies could not stop beaming.

And as if those were not enough to induce a sugar rush, the dessert selection will most certainly do the job!

Quite frankly, you should definitely save some of that stomach space if you are dining at Kushin Bo... because the range of assorted tarts, cakes, biscuits and sweets is just insane.

And don't even get me started on the Chocolate Fondue.

So it turned out I could not decide on which dessert to try. And I had no choice but to settle on the next best option in the end.


Stand-outs for me were the fragrant swiss rolls (earl grey, lavender and rose flavours!), konnyaku jelly and Peanut and Red Bean Mochi. Ayd, on the other hand, loved just about every sweet little treat I reckon.

As part of the thematic fairs, special events like mochi tsuki (rice cake pounding ceremony) and doughnut- making demonstrations will also be held every Saturday and Sunday, where customers are invited to try their hand at the activities and sample the delicious, freshly-made treats. Yes, even more sweet treats!

With so many items on offer, there were hits and misses when it came to the spread. But the sheer amount of choices definitely made up for it - in fact, I think I did not even manage to try every single item! The final say (or sound) though, belonged to the monkies who let out of burps of contentment at the end of it all.

So if you are looking for an eclectic variety of food when it comes to buffets, you got it at Kuishin Bo Suntec City.

oh yeah, Kuishin Bo!! We used to go there for buffet with my family until they closed for renovation. We loved the wide spread and huge array of food, dessert and drink available, everyone in my family had something to look forward to while in the queue.

I'm so glad that they re-open in Suntec City again, I really want to dine there with my family again, I'm sure my gal will go crazy with the DIY ice-kacang and popcorn!! Both hubby and myself will surely be fighting over the Japanese fare!!

“Dong Dong Dong, 1, 2, 3", Kuishin Bo! Here we come again!!

We used to go there very often before it close down for renovation. We love buffet. We love kuishin Bo.

I have never bring my kids to buffet before. Mostly buffet food are more for adults. I think Kuishin Bo is a very nice place for family bonding and having dinner together. Really hope to win, so I can bring my kids for their first time to a buffet dinner.

Our family loves Japanese food, whether raw or cooked. The Kids Haven corner looks terrific as it caters to the needs of the little ones. It will be great if the kids can help themselves to the food while hubby and me can enjoy our food. The huge variety of food is making me crave for them now!

I have heard of the restaurant before but have not bring them before. Hopefully I can bring my both kids there since they would be able to pick the food themselves. I hope that I can spend my wedding anniversary there as a family event.

Robert Sim said...

I enjoyed Kuishin=Bo's quality buffet spread and its wide variety previously. Excited to dining there again!

Unknown said...

It would be great to enjoy all the tasty looking foods but I think the food demonstration and sampling events will be a good highlight as it is not often that you can have one sure event at the end of a buffet session. It would definitely bring the buffet meal to a new high.

KarMie's blog said...

My husband n i hardly ever go for buffets after having kids...coz we can't fully enjoy the buffet spread as the kids won't be able to sit still that long! So the kids corner definitely will entertain them... hope to win this to celebrate our belated wedding anniversary!!! Perfect for our 2A n 2C family :)

Ang's Family said...

This will be the best gift for Sis Karen and Bro Steven to repay them for their kindness! Their 2 princesses will love the kids' corner!

Whenever we think of buffet, its usually unsitable for kids and we have to worry about their food choices. With kuishinbo's kids corner we could enjoy buffet fares without worrying about the kids. They can help themselves to the food they chose too. Splendid idea!

Unknown said...

We have been avoiding buffet when we are out with kids as most of the food are not suitable for them and we tends to be more busy serving them as the food were placed too high for them to reach. This will be a great bonding makan time with the kids and we adults together with kids can enjoy the foods and sugar overload!

Our family loves Japanese Food. But its always so costly for to bring the whole family along! Hope to win to enjoy some bonding time with my family! A day which I dun need to cook!

K Wee Woon said...

I am excited because I have a pair of super energetic kids.. I love the Kuishinbo's Kids Corner, its awesome to see them have their own fun as while me & wifey gets our ""together" time. I can imagine them wondering off to get their own goodies and "showing off". They are 7 & 8 now, its time we let them "roam"" and get their own food... this is a good start, safe and easy for them to handle without disturbing others! Great practice to allow my wife "to let it go"!

We love Japanese food very much. This restaurant is a family friendly that suitable for my 2 impatient boy. I hardly bring them out to have a dinner because they are restless and picky eater (only love sushi, salmon and all kind Japanese food). That's costly and unable to afford every time. We sometimes just grab some from department store.

My birthday just around the corner, I wish to surprise them and due to my new job scope, I hardly have bonding time for them. Sometime when I'm back, they have sleep and when I go out to work very early in the morning, they still asleep. Hope my birthday star shine on me to make them enjoy happy moment together with me. I'm sure they will love it.

Thank you.

Various reasons why I would love to have this chance to go ..
1) food - we all loved Japanese food. Mummy and girl especially love desserts.
2) training - with kids friendly buffet area, it is a good time and chance to train the kids' independence and build up their confidence.
3) celebration - this is the last year my boy qualifies as a kid. A celebration to him upgrading to next phase of his life, that he is growing up to a young adult.
