THE SECRET THAT IS KAPPO SHUNSUI
The best of kappo cuisine (a concept that’s more casual than kaiseki) in Singapore can be found at Kappo Shunsui, which is hidden behind a bronze sliding door that’s only accessible by a biometric scanner. No, the restaurant is not being elitist — it’s just a special touch that enhances a diner’s VIP treatment, especially if they’re frequent customers. For first time visitors, simply ring the doorbell to gain entry. Don’t forget to have your fingerprints registered for future visits. Once inside, the cozy 19-seater restaurant, which is helmed by Executive Chef Nishi Nobuhiro, takes you on a delicious journey through the season’s freshest produce. Everything here is flown from Japan, so expect only the best vegetables, seafood, and meats prepared and cooked in front of you. A staple at Kappo Shunsui is Owan, a dashi-based soup served with homemade shinjo (fish cake), which is composed of five different seasonal fish meats. For something more indulgent, the A4 Kagoshima Wagyu Claypot Rice will make your mouth water as Chef Nobuhiro blow torches the beef to perfect doneness. Bookended by these two dishes are an assortment of seasonal offerings, which include a parade of appetizers, various types of sashimi, as well as seasonal seafood specialties.
