We may not get to enjoy the romantic sight of fresh cherry blossoms like those in Japan, but we sure can tuck into some amazing Sakura-inspired fare this season!


From 6th March until the end of May, Shaburi & Kintan Buffet will be taking its first-ever Sakura Festival to the next level with all sorts of pink-themed treats, including a pink hotpot and strawberry chocolate fountain.

On top of that, you can expect to find loads of hanami-inspired items on the menu, like Spring Chirashi Sushi, Bamboo & Sakura Ebi Salad, Sakura Ebi & Bamboo Shoot Tempura, Sakura Mochi & Yomogi Mochi, Matcha Pudding & Strawberry Pudding.

These are all made to capture the essence of spring using the freshest seasonal ingredients. Sound exciting? Read on to see some of the highlights of this uniquely pink feast!

Pink Hotpot

Hotpot lovers, watch out because here comes a must-try soup base that's both yummy and Insta-worthy! This Pink Soy Milk Soup is a healthy-conscious Shaburi Singapore exclusive, that was created without the use of any food dyes or artificial colouring.


Diners can expect a nutty, umami-filled flavour to the broth. This pairs well with the free-flow meats and buffet counter dishes included in the Regular Shaburi course, including a variety of vegetables and mushrooms to meats and seafood.

Strawberry Chocolate Fountain

The star of the show is arguably this dazzling pink chocolate fountain — the first and only one of its kind in Singapore — containing strawberry-flavoured chocolate that tastes like the iconic pyramid-shaped Meiji chocolates.

You can find this impressive centrepiece at the dessert bar, where diners can pick out their favourite bites to enjoy with the velvety chocolate.

Free-Flow Salmon Buffet

If you've got a separate stomach for sushi and sashimi (particularly those of the salmon variety) here's your chance to feast on as many plates of these goodies as your heart desires!
