Note: This place is no longer in operation.
One of my colleagues loves japanese cuisine so on rare occasions that my boss decides to have dinner with us, we’ll normally have japanese food. We used to frequent Rakuzen at SS15 but after 3 occasions of having hygiene-compromised food (found baby cockroaches in them), we have decided to try a new place around the area and I recalled this tiny eating place near Domino’s Pizza opposite SJMC.
Shun is rather small in size in comparison to Rakuzen, and by the time we arrived, there were no spots downstairs and we were ushered upstairs. To our dismay, the upstairs was the smoking section, and the best the waitress could do was seat us at a table furthest away from the rest of the smoking patrons. i noticed that most of the smoking men were japanese and were enjoying their sake whilst grilling mushrooms slices over a small, portable grill.
My boss ordered grilled ginkgo nuts (ginnan), potato croquettes (korokke), soft shell crab hand-roll (temaki), cheese maki, edamame, agadeshi tofu and a sashimi platter for us to share. My boss and my senior shared a beef curry rice between the two of them. My colleague and I shared the Shun Bento and some yam noodles. The Shun Bento had salmon, tuna & octopus sashimi, tempura, a potato croquette, potato salad, miso soup, chawanmushi, rice and fruit.
Needless to say, we were all stuffed with the amount of food we ordered. The flavour and taste of everything was quite consistent, and I think we would enjoyed our dinner more if we were seated at the non-smoking section. Service was also rather slow, so this is not the place to go if you’re in a hurry. Took 15 mins before the bill came after we asked for it.
