Per Ping's suggestion, we went with Spicy Miso and Tonkotsu soup bases - they were SUPERB! I'm a bit broth crazy and both of these passed with flying colors. For our "dip", we combined the table condiments of minced garlic, cilantro, and scallions into ponzu sauce.
All you can eat shrimp, pork belly, wagyu beef, fish fillets, chicken, spam, rib eye, various dumplings, veggies, and noodles (fresh ramen, vermicelli, udon). The noodles were so delicious from soaking up the broth flavors!
For brunch, we headed for B Star Bar:
Banana Milkshake with honey, cinnamon, and dates
Salmon, fried rice (w/ yummy crispy bits), poached egg and green tea broth. The flavors come together beautifully once mixed.
Seared Tuna over gingered rice with eggs and avocado
Grilled pork, eggs, and garlic fried rice
