Kyuu by Shunsui is a relatively new sashimi and robatayaki restaurant that serves the freshest and best quality ingredients from Japan. It has launched a 10-course Omakase menu that’s priced at $129++ per pax – but before you gawk at the seemingly high price, let me assure you that it’s a bang for your buck! Here’s a brief run-through of the menu.
As a robatayaki restaurant, Kyuu by Shunsui grills their ingredients over a hot charcoal a la minute. What’s special about this restaurant is that they serve each of the grilled items with a special homemade sauce.
And this concludes the series of robatayaki dishes. But the feast is far from over!
What’s unique about this dish is that first, you get to choose the size of your rice bowl – small, medium or large. Then, the chef will come over and spoon fresh ikura onto your rice bowl, only stopping when you tell him to! That’s really generous, right?
I so amused by this that it took me a while before I could tell the chef “STOP!” Or maybe I just love ikura? Do note that there is a bowl of miso soup served with this rice too.
The dishes that stood out to me were the eggplant, big-sized prawn, king crab, and ikura rice! The sauces used were creative and complemented well with the other ingredients. You can really taste the good quality as the food was all very fresh.
Portions were also rather generous for each course, thus this stretches your dollar even more! Do also come before 9pm because beyond that timing it switches to their a la carte menu.
