Uni shabu shabu or sea urchin hotpot is the latest flavour to hit town, brought in by Japanese restaurant Torikin in Bukit Timah Road.

Creamy sea urchin is stirred into a dashi broth for the soup base, giving it a yellowish hue and a subtle flavour of the seafood.

The hotpot (above) comes in a set priced at $86.90 a person (minimum two people), which includes seafood such as scallop, salmon, tuna, prawn and more sea urchin, as well as assorted vegetables. Additional orders of seafood are priced at $42 and vegetables at $12.90.

After you finish the food, you can add some udon or rice to the remaining stock for a noodle soup or rice porridge.

Torikin's main specialities are its chicken dishes and its gyoza ($16.90 for 10 pieces) is really good, with tasty minced chicken wrapped in a thin and crispy skin.
