Whilst we were still in Brisbane, we headed to Hanaichi for some decent Japanese cuisine for lunch. Evidently, it was not our first but third time visiting the restaurant located on level 3 of Wintergarden Brisbane. The interior has grown to fit in several more dining tables now, since the last time we came. Same goes to the Wintergaden building which stood out looking stunning after a $100 million worth of facelift.
Seared Scallop topped with caviar and sliced scallions that left us with a breath of freshness and sweet taste. You'll love it ;)
Heavenly delicious Seared Salmon with chilli and soy sauce.
Sushi feast!!! Yum~
Some other sushi we ordered were like Ebiko (shrimp eggs) or Tobiko (flying fish eggs) I can't really tell the difference between them to be honest, Spicy Mayo Scallop and Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll.
An appealing bento set with chicken katsu, fried onion omelet, a variety of sushi and sashimi (scallop, salmon and etc), steamed rice, and miso soup with tofu. Make sure you try this out too!
In the evening, after battling with blood and sweat (not that we actually bleed or sweated, I was just amplifying a little ;p) for almost three hours at the Jupiters Casino, we came out starving like wolves! And without much thinking, we drove to the city centre, parked our car, and the next second we realized that we were already sitting there so comfortably in a Chinese restaurant. It was Cheng's China Bistro (such a weird name for a restaurant) at the Centre Arcade, Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise.
Over-steamed chewy baby abalones, $8 each.
Salt & Pepper King Prawns. Way too salty and too much MSG, no ifs, ands or buts about it.
The hungry Mr. Choo refused to let go of his iPhone still.
Salted Fish with Chicken and Tofu Claypot. Despite the lack of plating and presentation, this dish turned out to be pretty alright considering it simple and easy to cook.
