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.
