(New) Kyuu by Shunsui: 10 Course Omakase Experience At Only $129++


Kyuu by Shunsui...

I’m starting to take a liking to Omakase after my recent experience at the new modern Japanese restaurant, Kyuu by Shunsui. In the past, I’ve never wanted to try Omakase because it’s an expensive affair and usually the meal can also dragged for about a few hours. As I grow up, I began to realise that Omakase is the best time to relax and reward yourself with a curated meal. Moreover, you will never know what the Japanese chef will surprise you with since the dishes are mostly dependant on seasonal ingredients and your dietary preferences. So, it’s really fine to treat yourself to an Omakase experience once in awhile.

If you are looking for a reasonably-priced Japanese restaurant for Omakase, you might want to check out Kyuu by Shunsui because they are currently offering a 10 course Omakase at only $129++. Not only will you be walking away with a very satisfied & filling stomach, you will also remember the cute interaction you might have with the chefs and staffs. Seriously, you need to check them out!

Not only was the Omakase experience very pleasing to the eyes (you get to see the chef’s cutting and cooking abilities), all the dishes were very pleasurable to the taste buds. I left the restaurant with an exploding tummy. 

1) 3 Kinds Appetizer
Red Snapper And Japanese Ginger With Sumiso (Mixture Of Vinegar And Miso)

Home Made Sesame Tofu Covered With Starchy Sauce And Wasabi

Soft Simmered Duck Topped With Home Made Miso 

Kyuu by Shunsui already impressed me with the very first dish which I finished in no time. The tofu was so soft and melty, and it complemented very well with the punchy wasabi sauce. Duck was tender and flavourful. The Red Snapper was sweet and refreshing.

2) Assorted Sashimi
Tuna Fatty Belly, Red Snapper, Salmon, Sea Urchin, Yellow Tail, Red Shrimp, Scallop, Salmon Roe

A whole platter full of fresh sashimi for you to enjoy. This has to be the best dish for sashimi-lovers! All you have to do is to dip it with soy sauce and wasabi. My life's complete! 

3) Charcoal Grill
Egg Plant With Sweet Red Miso

Tuna Belly With Truffle Ponzu Sauce

Big Size Prawn With Wasabi Sauce

King Crab With Vinegar And Sudachi Lime

Fruits Tomato With Setouchi Salt

Kagoshima A4 Wagyu Beef Aitchbone With Red Miso Fond De Veau

Egg plant was well-cooked with a soft texture. The red miso sauce wasn’t too sweet and it paired well with the egg plant. Sesame seeds also enhanced the aroma and flavour of the egg plant.

Tuna with Truffle? How can I not like it? Tuna was fresh and the truffle smell was just so alluring.

Prawn was well-grilled, fresh, sweet and very crunchy! Best to eat it without dipping the sauce! 

Tomato was explosively sweet (really explodes when you cut it) and very sweet. Simple but amazing! 

King Crab was really fresh (very easy to remove the meat from the shell) and very fresh. Drizzle some lime to enhance the flavour!

The Omakase just gets better and better! Beef was cooked to perfection. It was tender, flavourful and juicy. Honestly, I don’t mind having another plate of it!

4) Rice Dish
Hokkaido Rice Nanatsuboshi Covered With Salmon Roe

Miso Soup With Fresh Nori Seaweed

More! More! More! Don’t want to spoil your surprise but you need to video this segment down! Very generous portion of salmon roe. By the way, you get to choose between small, medium and large. I went for the small because my stomach was really going to explode. Go for the large one if you are still hungry but I highly doubt so!

5) Dessert
Home Made Ice Cream

Ending off the meal with my favourite Matcha Ice Cream with Azuki Beans! The ice cream changes every now and then, and is largely dependent on what the chefs make!
