(Closed) Shokudo Japanese Coffee House Intro 130 New Items into Menu
In Japanese cuisine, yoshoku refers to a style of Western-influenced cooking. Best known for its Yoshoku-style Japanese cuisine, Shokudo Japanese Coffee House has introduced a revamped menu with over 130 items treat their diners to a delicious trip down oishii lane. With sections from Conversation Starters, Bites of Life, Fushion Favourites, Hearty Specials and the most spectacular Oishii Japan, diners are in for a delicious treat ranging from snacks to mains and lip-smacking desserts.
Our lunch started with Ebi Tempura and Mango Haru Maki ($9.80). Wrapped in Japanese rice paper instead of the usual seaweed wrap, the tempura prawns were crispy. Couldn’t really taste the mango in the salad though, my mouth was full of lettuce.
Japanese Mushroom Soup ($6.80) has shiitake mushrooms in smooth creamy bonito broth.
I love their Hakodate Seafood Cheese Pizza ($13.80) with generous amount of scallops, squid, prawns and clams on cheesy crispy pizza. The pizza was so cheesy and its crust so thin and infused with flavours and texture. It is good as a snack. If you prefer something hawaiian, go for their Aloha Sausage Cheese Pizza ($11.80) with pineapple and chicken sausages on cheesy crispy pizza.
Some worth trying appetizers include Tamago Tofu ($5.80) and Shokudo Uzu Chicken Wing ($7.80). Similar to Agedashi Tofu, Shokudo’s Tamago Tofu has deep fried egg tofu rolled with bonito flakes and topped with fish roe. The home made yuzu marinated chicken wings is refreshing and served with wasabi mayonnaise.
A notable new highlight that will blow away all curry lovers, is the Mount Fuji Curry Omu Rice ($16.80) which features Shokudo’s very own omelette rice topped with thick beef patty, cheese and greens soaked in their signature Japanese curry served with potato salad and pickles. The curry is slightly sweeter and of a thicker consistency.
Unagi Rice Burger ($12.80) has grilled unagi layered with lettuce and egg on rice burger. Unagi has wonderful melt-in-the-mouth textures and the delicious smokey sweetness of the teriyaki sauce that covers it.
I thought their Tonakastu Donburi ($14.80) can be better. The deep fried pork cutlet did not have a beautiful crunch and the meat was not juicy. Other donburi choices include Tori Teriyaki, Unatama, Buta and Tori Karaage.
Lunch ended with Shokudo Original Tofu Cheese Cake ($5.80). The cheesecake was exquisitely light and delectable coupled with the firm crumbly biscuit base, and drizzled with some strawberry sauce. To beat the heat, try their Iced Lychee Float (S$5.80).
