Located at the heart of Robertson Quay, Shunjuu Izakaya is well-known for its delicious sumiyaki cuisine. Start by treating yourself to the refreshing appetisers, which include fresh slices of amberjack seasoned with just the right touch of truffle oil, perched atop a crisp salad; it’s perfectly balanced and sinfully delicious. Back to the charcoal-grilled items, don’t miss out on the beautifully grilled tontoro—delicious pork cheek—that’s tender and smoky, and seasoned perfectly. The Japanese wagyu ribeye doesn’t disappoint; the choice cut is expertly trimmed, leaving just the right amount of fat in the lightly charred meat. Need some seafood? Go for the charcoal-grilled prawns, which are delicately seasoned with salt, then layered with butter to enhance their sweetness and lock in the flavours. Enjoy these dishes in the perpetually busy izakaya, anchored by an open kitchen and an impressive sake display.
In addition to the grilled favourites, the restaurant offers cold and hot food options for diners looking to have light bites to pair with their drinks.
