We ordered Fresh carrot juice and orange juice
Mixed Seaweed with Baby Shrimp. Serving of Japanese fried lotus, mixed lettuce, seaweed, and cherry tomatoes, Simple dressing with citrus and the crispy crunch from the shrimp is definitely a good one.Refreshing healthy salad to kick start our meal.
In Shinjiro, The usual practice to grilled the meat are using only the Shio (sea salt and pepper) on the Japanese charcoal. The staff are well trained to ensure the Yakitori is well cooked and grilled to perfection. The skill is on how to control the fire and keep turning the fresh meat and vegetables.

There are 6 choices of sauce to choose at your preference. The sauce choices are the Sweet & Sour, Chilli, Garlic Chili, Salsa, Teriyaki and Sesame Pistachio. They use different kind of sauce to balance up the taste of each skewers.You can choose yourselves or you can ask the chef to recommend the best combination for you. An open concept kitchen that patrons can enjoy watching them in action.

Highly recommended Mix Tempura. This is not the usual tempura flour that I have tasted. It was actually wrapped with beancurd skin and fried to perfection. Crispy in every bite and unique combination of prawn, squid and Japanese sweet potatoes.
