Lunch at Shinji by Kanesaka

Another sumptuous lunch at my favourite Japanese Sushi Restaurant.  Dining at this place is not only a treat to the tummy but the service standard and food quality, makes every visit here a true dining experience.

Mikko’s comments : Voted as 3-star michelin restaurant by food critic, Shinji never failed to impress me with their food quality and service for each visit.  The Omakase i had consisted of a good 20-dish course.  Food served ranged from raw, to steam, seasoned, vinegard, and other various ways of cooking.  While prices are not cheap but it was definitely worth the experience.  A very good treat for myself.

 

a happy mikko after a good meal
