The bar doesn’t just offer drinks, but also a distinctive and premium bar dining menu. Whether you’re in the mood for bar snacks to whet your appetite or larger meals to satisfy your dinner cravings, The House Bar has you covered with their freshly prepared dishes.
Let’s start with the Norwegian Salmon & Jalapeno priced at $25. The salmon was incredibly fresh, and when paired with the yuzu soy sauce, it created a delightful combination of savoury, sweet, and salty flavours. The addition of crunchy jalapeno (not spicy) added an extra kick that left me wanting more.
Next up is the Bluefin Tuna Tartare, priced at $35. This dish not only tastes amazing but also looks stunning and elegant. The chopped fresh tuna, Japanese pickles, egg, spring onion, and wasabi come together in perfect harmony and melt in your mouth. The dish is further enhanced by the tosasu shoyu, and when enjoyed with the special biscuit, it becomes an absolute must-try.
If you’re a sushi lover, you can’t miss the Unagi Oshizushi, priced at $25. The sushi rice seasoned with arima sansho and kizami yuzu gives it a unique and tangy flavour. The unagi (eel) is incredibly tender and of excellent quality. Trust me, if you have a love for sushi, this dish is a must-try.
For maki lovers, The House Bar Maki at $22 won’t disappoint. Filled with salmon, mango, kyuri, avocado, and topped with mentaiko sauce and homemade sweet sauce, this maki is a winner. The savoury flavours, well-cooked rice, and perfectly balanced ingredients create a delightful culinary experience that leaves you feeling warm and satisfied.
Seafood enthusiasts, brace yourselves for the Hotate Truffle Somen priced at $32. This dish features Hokkaido scallops, sea urchin, salmon roe, sliced truffle, truffle oil, and shio kombu. The truffle oil, combined with the bits of truffle, adds a savoury and flavourful touch. The scallops are sweet and tender, and the uni (sea urchin) simply melts in your mouth. Trust me, this dish is a must-try.
Now, let’s talk about the crown jewel, the Wagyu Donabe, priced at $85. Served in a claypot, this dish features Miyazaki Wagyu, chives, truffle oil, sliced truffle, shio kombu, and vegetables. The rice has a slight saltiness to it, with some parts crispy, adding an interesting texture to the dish. The Wagyu, cooked to medium-rare perfection, is of exceptional quality and will leave you craving for more.
To complement your meal, The House Bar offers a wide selection of spirits, wines, and cocktails. Whether you prefer a classic cocktail or something more adventurous, their knowledgeable staff can guide you to the perfect drink to accompany your dining experience.
Before I wrap up this culinary adventure, I must mention the impeccable service at The House Bar. The staff goes above and beyond to make your visit memorable. From the moment you step through the door, you’ll be greeted with warm smiles and genuine hospitality. The servers are friendly, helpful, sincere, and courteous, making you feel like a valued guest throughout your dining experience.
After indulging in the savoury delights, it’s time to satisfy your sweet tooth with the Dessert of the Day. The House Bar offers a seasonal Hokkaido Crepe that simply melts in your mouth. The Hokkaido milk cream used in this dessert is refreshing and delicious, transporting you to the picturesque landscapes of Hokkaido with every bite.
One of the highlights of The House Bar is the talented head bartender, Qing Ting. Her expertise shines through in the specialty cocktails, each infused with a Japanese spirit or flavour, giving the drinks a unique twist that captures the essence of The House Bar.
I had Kitaya Jinkoo Koizora which is a Shochu-based umeshu that offers a fragrant, intense, and sweet flavour profile. It pairs exceptionally well with the dishes and desserts served at The House Bar, complementing the flavors and enhancing the overall dining experience.
In addition to the delectable food and drinks, The House Bar also boasts a stylish and inviting ambiance.
