Syun @ Resorts World Sentosa by Celebrity Chef Hal Yamashita
Syun at Resorts World Sentosa is Chef Hal Yamashita’s first venture outside Japan. Syun is a contemporary Japanese restaurant which presents a seamless union of premium ingredients with everyday ingredients as well as a melding of Japan’s various regional dishes. Hailing from Kobe, Chef Yamashita weaves into Syun’s menu his cooking philosophy of simplicity and a deep-rooted appreciation for quality produce.
An elegant, contemporary “zen-ness” welcomes you as you push open the dark wooden door. Clad in classy natural wood, the 50-seater restaurant felt very cosy and inviting, from its casual dining space, to its sushi bar and two private dining rooms for seven to eight diners each.
One of the chef’s signature dishes is Sea Urchin Rolled by Wagyu Beef ($15). The melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu beef melts in the mouth first before the creamy sea urchin steals the show. It looked pretty and I always like how you could just pop it into your mouth without fear of it coming apart.
During my recent lunch makan with Karen, we both enjoyed our Chirashi Sushi and Unagi and Foie Gras Teriyaki Jyu, served with miso soup, chawanmushi and green salad with yuzu ginger dressing. The Chirashi Sushi ($32) is packed with goodies: salmon, tuna, kajiki, hamachi and drizzled with edible flowers and sesame seeds. The different fish offer varying textures, some firm and springy while others are crunchy. The box is beautifully presented like a garden, neatly arranged with seafood and drizzled with slightly sweet sauce but yet you still can taste the freshness of its ingredients.
Rice topped with meat, poultry or eel is always a good choice of filling lunch. Unagi and Foie Gras Teriyaki Jyu ($37) was delicious as the eel was soft and easy to eat. However, I thought the foie gras can be executed better. It’s pretty soft on the outside and inside. After a few mouthful, it gets quite “jelat”.
For lunch, there is a choice of Sushi Roll Set or Jyu Box Set (like what we had, from $32++). For dinner, a 5-course set menu starts from $78. A 7-course set dinner is also available from $128. Syun also offers a Yamashita-style sukiyaki – where diners dip wagyu beef in sea urchin instead of raw egg.
