Incredibly juicy, tender and savory! If you are into slow braised meats, this is a must order!

Was introduced by my friend and had a great experience there. The food is really good and the staff is friendly. They would share and recommend the dishes so do please ask them if you're lost in the menu!

Highly recommend the Tochgi Wagyu skewers. It's buttery and when it slides in your mouth, the taste explodes with that unbelievable chewy texture of good meat. It also taste exceptionally well with the sake. I'm craving for it while writing this right now.

5/5 would go back to Shukuu for the experience. 6/5 stars would go back for the wagyu 😋

Must try: Gyu Ponzu, Squid Ink Calamari, Pork Jowl Charshu, Maguro Yukke, Mentaiko Aburi Sushi & Kushiyaki Skewers

Pair the sake with everything. I travel to Japan a lot and I'll vouch for the sake selection and pairings over here, they know what they're doing! It’s served in special wine glasses so you get more of the delicate aromas from modern sake production methods. They support the Jizake Movement at this place, which is sort of a conservation effort to save craft sake in Japan and it always boggles my mind that more people don’t drink Sake in Singapore, it’s at such a perfect price point. I recommend the Kikuzakari, a sweet-dry hybrid Sake from Nagano.

Pretty much all the food here goes perfectly with a glass of sake. I’d choose the Gyu Ponzu to highlight this signature citrus lift that mixes with the juices from the chilled and tender beef- the flavour just pops.
The sushi here is excellent as well, the Mentaiko Aburi Sushi was blowtorched to perfection, with none of the usual butane aftertaste. The rice was firm, warm and seasoned beautifully.

I can’t recommend the Squid Ink Calamari enough. It’s beautiful to look it as well as cooked to tender, buttery perfection. There’s a slight iron flavour from the ink that just coats your tongue like a hug. It honestly barely needed the mayo they served it with and the batter… I’ve been to specialist tempura shops in Tokyo’s CBD and this is the best tempura I’ve had in my life.

Izakayas are places you go to pre-game in Japan so of course, there’s $53 Sapporo towers. I stuck to Sake but almost every other table seemed to think a tower was a great idea and it did seem to lift their mood. The place is happening la. Stop scrolling, just go only.
