“I make sushi I personally want to eat it”, the motto of the 1 Michelin Star Japanese Restaurant, Shinji by Kanesaka.
Knowing that it’s time to feel “heavenly” through our palate, we have to visit one of these best Japanese sushi restaurants in Singapore, serving only Omakase (meaning to entrust the chef and “I will leave it up to you”) menus.
It was for my birthday, mainly. :)
Shinji by Kanesaka at St Regis
In this sushi bar setting restaurant, we basically feel the intimacy between diners and the Itamae (sushi chef at the kitchen counter). Such setting allows diners to admire the skilled sushi masters at work making art pieces food to serve to their diners in front of them. Click here to see the artistic performance by the chef:
No specific ingredients spelled out in their menu, it only says what seasonal courses will be be served in our Omakase selection, which comprises appetiser, sashimi, cooked dishes, assorted sushi, soup and Japanese fruits. We knew we are totally good in the hands of the chef of this award wining restaurant, serving only the most superior ingredients. Full course meal prices ranging from S$250 and S$550++ per pax.
Without splurging, there are other lighter selections of sushi sets comprising 12 or 15 pieces served with soup and dessert. Carlton Hotel’s outlet only serves also a 9 pieces lunch option. Sushi meal prices ranging from S$90 to $220++ per pax.
Let’s see what we had for lunch at the St Regis’ outlet.
It’s just needless to say, the freshest ingredients always give the most premium taste even on its own and at its most natural way of serving. We truly enjoyed it, a lot, a lot. For 2 of us, we spent a total of $588 for a well satisfactory and super filling Yume Omakase Japanese lunch, on a weekday. It’s all worth it, on an occasion. :)
