This Shin Yuu outing had been put on back burner for a couple of months due to one of my colleague not able to confirm on a date. A quick decision by another colleague and nods from us, and here we are for a Saturday lunch.

Chawanmushi - This Special Egg Custard with Salmon Roe is very flavourful and smooth unlike those plain tasteless ones you get somewhere else.




Moriawase - Mixture of Tuna, Kingfish, Salmon, Swordfish, Octopus and White Tuna. Fresh sashimi but this time they don't allows us to order just the White Tuna saying it's for dinner only.




Spider Temaki - My colleague took the Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll which she claimed was nice.

Complementary Salmon, Salmon Belly and Unagi Sushi plus Smoked Duck Breast.




Unagi Kabayaki - First few dishes was sweet and very nice, later ones came salty.

Wafu Steak - This Tenderloin Steak was very tender though a bit chewy.




Gyu Karubi - Beef Short Ribs with Sweet Soy Sauce



Grilled Salmon Fishhead - This Salmon's head was fresh, no fishy taste at all and served very hot.

Hamachi Sushi - Yellow Tail Sushi



Aburi Salmon Sushi - This Shin Yuu Special recommendation was indeed very good, the searing lend it a unique taste. You got to try it for yourself. And oh, the plate was very hot, my fingers got burned when I grab the edges of the plate.




Shake Kawa and Negitoro Temaki - Salmon Skin and Tuna Belly with Spring Onions Hand Rolls

Hotate Mentaiyaki - Scallops Topped with Cod Roe Sauce, lightly grilled so the scallops are still almost raw.




Tori Karaage - This Deep Fried Mini Chicken Cubes which I found it to be on the plain side. My colleague squeezed some lemon juice over it and it tasted better.



Ebi Miso Mayo Yaki - Another Shin Yuu Special dish, this Prawns with Miso and Mayonnaise Sauce may look like your plain old egg omelet but it is quite decent tasting.

Soramame - I am more familiar with the roasted Broad Beans than this steamed/boiled version which you squeezed the meaty part out of the leathery casing.




Maguro Sashimi



Shishamo - This Grilled Capelin look like they had a tortured eggs laying session looking thin and dried.



Tebasaki - Seldom have I came across such juicy Grilled Chicken Mid-Wing.

Sakana Chiizu - Dory Fish Topped with Cheese but it tasted just so so only although it's a Shin Yuu Special.



Masu Ni - This Braised Grouper with Sweet Ginger Sauce was like the fish jumped into syrup water and came out overly sweet.



Ika Sugatayaki - Now, the Squid with Sweet Soy Sauce was so much better and grilled to just the right doneness.



Saba Shioyaki - Another dish I liked was the Grilled Mackerel with Salt that was crispy on the outside and still moist and juicy inside.



Ninniku Yaki Meshi - Ordered one bowl of Garlic Fried Rice to share. Very garlicky flavour which I like.

Makimono - This Shin Yuu Special (Unagi with Avocado Toppings) was not nice, the sauce made the rice lose their stickiness and when you tried to use the chopstick to pick up a piece, the rice break apart.



Kani Karaage - This Soft Shell Crab never bathed, the crabby taste was so strong, it's not nice at all.



Miso Shiru - Miso soup





Ebi Tempura

Hamachi Teriyaki - This Yellow Tail with Sweet Soy Sauce was fresh, no fishy taste at all and served very hot.

Thought this looks like Salmon fish head?

Thanks for the correction. This one was served without us ordering it. Will check the title later.
