A couple of weeks back, Maureen has gathered the group of friends from Twitter to celebrate his partner, Chuan Kai's birthday. It was supposed to be surprise celebration for him but sometimes no matter how hard you plan, things just don't work out according to plan. Nevertheless, we have a great time catching up with one another.
Sashimi Moriawase 5/5
The Sashimi was very fresh and excellent! I would love to have more but it is quite expensive.
Platter of different Kushiyaki 4.2/5
Shin Kushiya is popular for its Kushiyaki or grilled skewers. Kushiyaki refers to the use of ingredients such as beef, pork, fish or seafood grilled over charcoal on bamboo skewers. The restaurant uses only the Bincho charcoal (known as king of white charcoal). Biting into the meat, I could taste the distinct smoky flavour.
Salmon Ikura Don 4.5/5
Sanshoku Don 4.5/5
The rice for both the Salmon Ikura Don and Sanshoku Don was very nice and fragrant. I found out from Shin Kushiya website that they used premium Japanese rice that has short and plum grains. The restaurant also added Kombu, a Japanese kelp to the rice during steaming to infuse it with a special fragrance.
Tonkatsu Curry Don 3/5
With all the beautiful food from the Sashimi to the Kushiyaki, the Tonkasu Curry Don was a disappointement. The Tonkasu was tough and dry.
Truffle-infused Uni Pasta 3/5
The Truffle-infused Uni Pasta is an interesting culinary fusion of angel hair pasta, truffle oil, tobiko, caviar and fresh sea urchin. Expensive ingredients equal to excellent taste? Well fusion dish can be a subjective to individual's palate.
