I’m back once again , at Shoukouwa this winter season and welcoming my friend back from Aussie ! It’s really nearly a year since I last seen my friend and thus we decided to go all the way for the dearest menu , at least it’s gonna be an assuredly scrumptious meal for my friend before leaving Singapore again 😦
This winter season , at Shoukouwa , includes :-
Kabura with fresh piece of unagi cuts, sweet broth served cold.
My highlights in this palette : Mackerels was thick and succulent ! Other raws include Torigai , flounders and fresh botan ebi.
TAKE ALL THE MINCED SPRING ONIONS AND GARLIC AT OWN RISK !
This may look abit of a mess as a photo overall, due to the blue plate used. But the taste of this Sea Perch is a bomb ! The light sauce reminds me of Chinese Hua Diao wine (花雕酒) , a Chinese cooking wine. Very sweet combination here.
With the minced spring onions and garlic, I feel like this is so homely Chinese Asian , than a Japanese. LOVE IT !
4. SEASONAL DISH
This winter season , featuring Snow crab with shark fin gravy , decorative sides with ginkgo nuts and miso sauce.
The crab meat is fluffy soft ! we were told to try dipping each scoop of crab meat into the warm shark fin sauce , and yes , it’s a sweet combination !
Besides, love the ginkgo nuts with salt coating. It’s always my fav anyway =)
This time I was given an exposure to more different parts of the tuna fish , so as you can see,, more red meats.
Seared Bonito , Sekamai and of course, sea urchins, are some of my favorites here!
Sekamai : Medium quality of Akamai, which is the head part of the back of a tuna fish.
Crunchy taste of Japanese pickled turnips.
7. SIDE DISH
Oh this awabi abalone so so so good with that creamy miso sauce !
We are given balaone in two kinds of preparation : one that’s sliced and boiled , the other cut into cubes and mixed in miso cream.
8. ROLL SUSHI
The only place so far I like , with its roll sushi not rolled, but just by picking up the nigiri sushi with a piece of crisp seaweed ! Mined tuna is served herewith soyed rice.
9. CHIRASHI MINI DON
Because I had too much sea urchins since the previous day, I request chef to customized my rice bowl and he added thin sliced ootoro instead ! Every bits so creamy , just abit over added wasabi .
There’s seasonal fruits or ice cream served but I was too full for the night and as such, didn’t call for desserts.
FOOD : Still consistently scrumptious as my 1st trip. This time with more seasonal seafood , especially love the different types of tuna sushi served. Learning point here !
SERVICE : Friendly service chefs explaining and elaborating different types of sushi served.
AMBIENCE : Counter seatings, quiet didning.
