Michelin-starred Shinji By Kanesaka has been a reliable stalwart for many years and their two branches in Singapore are solid bets for a meticulously prepared omakase meal.
An omakase dinner can run up to S$550, but lunch is a less intimidating story. Both the Carlton Hotel and St Regis restaurants offer lunch menus at S$150 for 12 pieces of sushi and up.
However, only at the Carlton Hotel branch, you can get a weekday lunch option that is priced at S$100 for nine pieces of sushi (not available on Saturdays and public holidays, nor during the Chinese New Year period from Feb 9 to 14).
Here, it’s about the finer points of tradition, strong produce and, well, just really good fish and rice, when it comes down to it.
Shinji By Kanesaka is at Carlton Hotel, Lobby Level, 76 Bras Basah Road.
