Shunjuu Izakaya

185 Wishlisted
~$50/pax
Izakaya, literally translated to mean “sit-down sake shop” has been a Japanese lifestyle since the early Edo period. Today, an izakaya is distinguished by its casual small spaces, intimacy and mood. At shunjuu, we combine the authentic elements of an izakaya with our specialty sumiyaki (charcoal grill) morsels to offer you this unique wine and dine experience. The atmosphere is casual so that diners are able to be themselves and indulge in their favorite sake. Our open concept kitchen with the sumiyaki grill as the centre piece allows diners to see the activities in the kitchen and communicate with our masters (chefs). Lights are dimmed to create the mood for drinking and making merry. Other than our 70 selection of sumiyaki items, our masters’ specialty is sakana (food to go with sake) and sashimi that changes with the season. In total, we have 160 items on the menu. At shunjuu, we feature the widest range of sake in Singapore and all of them are available by the glass. This is to allow customers to taste different sake during their meal.

A delicious twist of quail eggs with anchovies. The saltiness of the anchovies makes the eggs more yummy

Located in the bustling Robertson Quay, shunjuu is one of my favourite places for yakitori. The atmosphere is lively, service is excellent and food is consistently good.

Definitely consider getting the beef tongue in your order. Cooked and seasoned to near perfection, it wasn't rubbery at all but tender and flavorful. The mustard served to add a bit of heat as well as to cut through the richness.

Fell in love with garlic fried rice all thanks to Shunjuu. I'm someone who doesn't enjoy the aftertaste of garlic but the one here is super, couldn't bear to finish my bowl. Another memorable dish was their Pitan-Tofu and range of skewers. I remembered seeing a lunch menu and would definitely go back to try!

This casual, unpretentious izakaya along Robertson Quay dishes out charcoal-grilled skewers, along with a wide selection of affordably-priced sake — no wonder it is a hit among working executives! On a cool night, opt to sit outdoors where you get to enjoy the breeze as you sip on a cup of warm sake (from $11). Start with the Pidan Tofu ($4) that is topped with ebiko. Smooth, savoury and rife with flavour, it might take all of your willpower to not order a second helping. Of the skewers, don't miss the Scallop Rolled with Pork ($13 for two) and the Ton Toro ($7 for two) — seasoned pork cheek grilled over charcoal for that charred crisp around the fatty portions. If you need your carbs, go for the Octopus and Seaweed Fried Rice ($13) and be sure to dip the complimentary cabbage in the accompanying miso dip. Reservations are not necessary, so there's room for spontaneity.
Avg price: $50 per person with drinks

Can't say no to scallops! It was pretty good, though nothing to write home about. Scallops were pretty moist and nori wrapped around the middle gave it a different aroma once you hit the middle. Think I expected more from the pork though (in my head pork=bacon 😝) which added a nice bite to it but didn't do much else.
Chicken wings were alright too, nice char on them but otherwise I think we'll stick to the Ton Toro Pork Skewers! 😋

There's something about a charcoal fire grilling up a whole buncha meats that excites me. Must be a little bit of caveman still in me.
Highlight of the night among all the skewers. The pork cheek was seasoned and grilled to perfection 👌 The slight char around the fat gave it a crisp bite and that sexy smoky aroma 😍

The other notable skewers was the Pork Wrapped Enoki, ohhh and the Octopus and Seaweed Fried Rice was amazballs too!
