九 KYUU by Shunsui

KYUU by Shunsui is a sister restaurant of Kappo Shunsui and they took over the shophouse unit of  Five Nines (999.99) cos it’s a joint venture between the owners of the latter and Chef Watanabe from Japan.

The restaurant serves a $129++ (Ten-course) omakase set dinner from 6-9pm and offers ala carte menu after 9pm.

I can’t remember what promotion we ride on but we tried a $99++ (Seven-course) omakase set dinner during our visit.

First course was 3 kinds of assorted appetizers followed by 5 kinds of assorted sashimi. The ingredients were fresh and of good quality.

The charcoal grilled items were next: Spanish Pork Belly and Asparagus with Half-boiled Egg and Flatfish Saikyo-yaki. As with some izakayas, these are prepared in the semi-open kitchen where guests could see it being grilled over the binchotan resulting in a nice smokey flavour

After the grilled pork and fish, the last grilled item was Kagoshima A4 Wagyu beef H-bone. The charcoal grill meat selections was a good display of the skills required to control the heat for different types of meat.

Rice dish was Ikura, Negitoro and snow crab kaisen-don. A mini-size rice don topped with overflowing seafood delicacies~

This is a place suitable for folks who enjoys omakase Japanese meal, without feeling constrained by the traditional Japanese setup. The modern setting makes guests feel more relaxed.
