Rosti Mentai

$8.00 · 56 Reviews

This was so gooood!!! My top fav mentai dish now 😍 a definite must order, great for sharing with 2. ONLY 2. IT WILL NOT BE ENOUGH TO SHARE AMONG 3. 🚫

My favourite was this grilled pork skewer aside from the wagyu skewer. The mentaiko rosti was awesome too. Reasonable priced for a Japanese Bar.

Would recommend the Gyu Ponzu, the Pork Belly Skewer (Shio), and the Rosti Mentai. The Gyu Ponzu was flavourful while the fats from the Pork Belly Skewer just melted in my mouth. The texture of the potatoes in the Rosti Mentai was also really interesting, and went really well with the Mentaiko sauce. Overall, a comfortable and delightful experience :)

On the pricier side but great food and ambience:~) Visited for the mentaiko rosti (which did not disappoint !!) but was blown away by their salmon sashimi and mentai especially... really melt-in-your-mouth. Worth going down to try at least once ~

Great time at shukuu izakaya, order a variety of dishes but the most outstand was the mentaiko rosti!! Really good!!!

Really loved the Mentaiko Rosti and the sushi! The fish was really fresh and the rice to sashimi ratio was perfect :-) Great place to chill and have a drink! Will definitely come back with friends!

Let’s start with the star of the show 😍: ROSTI MENTAI. Can I just say that I have never tried Mentaiko with rosti before and this blew my mind at how well it gelled together. The mentaiko wasn’t too jelak(thank God) & the rosti strips were gently fried- such that when you ate a mouth of the mentaiko with the rosti, it nicely glides over each other. It wasn’t too overwhelming and I quite like the rosti like that - not too crispy but in between a cooked potato and a fried chip. For only $9- this easily triumphed Marche’s rostis (comparing the value for price) something I would try in future is to eat it together with the beef cubes if you want more texture to your rosti!

The wagyu beef skewer was also equally amazing. They are famous for their charcoal skewers so give it a try if you’re there! The wagyu beef was so tender, and slightly melty! Price wise it was slightly more expensive, given the size of the skewer, but justified since it’s wagyu beef - it quickly disappeared down into my belly but I certainly can’t resist more! 😭

The salmon sashimi is something you can give a shot as well if you have room in your stomach. One thing to shout about is definitely it’s freshness, with each bite you can just about taste the smell of ocean HAHA.

All in all, I would consider this a (slightly more expensive) hidden gem and if you’re up for some sake, I heard they are great for them as well. This one is worth a shot! 👍🏻😊

This is one of the must-try dishes at Shukuu Izakaya. A great blend between the sweet potato Rosti and Mentaiko sauce. This match brings out the flavour from the sweet potato yet it is not being overwhelmed by the mentaiko.

Would totally recommend people who come here to give this a try. Place is generally good with a pleasant ambience to chill after a day at work

$9 for this salty and greasy Izakaya staple. Goes well with a dry and malty ale. The Sapporo or Asahi on tap will do!

Since my favorite izakaya is not doing takeaway during lockdown, I have been getting my izakaya fix from Shukuu due to their curbside location (a shop house in Telok Ayer) and reasonable prices. They have a good selection of easy to drink sake, priced around $70+gst. For food, their mentai rosti, kani miso and deep fried squid tentacles are my favorites. Avoid their fried chicken karaage (an izakaya staple) as it is unfortunately sub par.
