We were glad to be walking down the sidewalk of Millenia Walk during Phase 3 of the Circuit Breaker, and to find so many new restaurants we had not tried before. Decided to try this new yakitori place that wasn’t there the last time we were here.
As you entered the restaurant from the sidewalks of Millenia Walk, you are greeted with a huge fish tank that was used to be filled with live eels from Japan that they will debone and grill in house. Now, it was filled with beautiful goldfishes which one would thought was for fengshui purpose.
The highball was mixed with ginger soda, so it tasted pretty bad.
Japanese Potato Salad
雲丹握らずし Uni Nigirazushi
Hokkaido Sea Urchin Sushi Handroll
Generous amount of uni, nice and tasty – signs of good quality Japanese uni and not its cousins from warmer seas of China. These days, many would simply served Chinese uni “processed using Japanese techniques”.
牡蠣盛り合わせ Hokkaido Oysters Assortment of Toppings
Wow, this Kaki Moriawase was a very good selection of freshly shucked Hokkaido oysters flavoured in 8 different ways.
Princess took the yuzu flavoured, truffle salsa, ikura and plain ones, while I had the ume shiso, spicy radish, mentaiko and uni ikura ones. The fat and umami-laden oysters could stand on their own in terms of freshness and the flavours of the sea.
Looked and tasted like the supermarket version.
We came for the yakitori, we were very disappointed. The shio items were not salted enough, and the teriyaki ones were too dry. The only item Princess and I agreed was good was the deep-fried chicken wings.
Opened in August 2019, Sho Yakitori & Sushi is a relatively new Japanese restaurant at Millenia Walk. Besides specialising in unagi, yakitori and sushi as per their website, I have to add that the sashimi is really outstanding, but I would not say the same about the yakitori though. And the service needs a lot of improvement – they were busy with the guests in the private rooms that they totally ignored us in the front of the house.
