Exquisite Omakase Dinner at Kyuu by Shunsui

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.

1st course: Fresh Fig with Sumiso, Homemade Sesame Tofu, and Soft Simmered Duck
2nd course: Seasonal Sashimi – including tuna fatty belly, red snapper, salmon, sea urchin, yellow tail, red shrimp, scallop and salmon roe

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.

3rd course: Eggplant with sweet red miso sauce
4th course: Tuna Belly with truffle ponzu sauce
5th course: Big-sized Prawn with wasabi sauce
6th course: King Crab with vinegar and sudachi lime
7th course: Fruits Tomato with Setouchi salt
8th course: Kagoshima A4 Wagyu Beef aitchbone with red miso fond de veau

And this concludes the series of robatayaki dishes. But the feast is far from over!

9th course: Hokkaido Rice Nanatsuboshi with ikura

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.

10th course: Homemade ice cream (this was matcha flavoured with adzuki beans)

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.
