Shinji by Kanesaka - Carlton Hotel, Singapore #OneMichelinStar

What Michelin say, ‘The revamping of Raffles meant that Shinji Kanesaka had to find a new berth for what was his first restaurant outside Japan. He duly found space within the Carlton hotel around the corner. From the hinoki counter you can watch the same trusted team prepare the same high quality, traditional Edomae-style sushi. To make the most of the experience go for the omakase menu, although there are more affordable menu options available at lunchtime.

At the time of visiting, Shinji was ranked No.44 on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list – see here.

Shinji by Kanesaka at Raffles was not just one of my favourites places to eat in Singapore, but in the world. Although still helmed by Master Chef Koichiro Oshino, for me, they have lost a little of their character in the move but the food, with fish flown in from Tokyo's Tsukiji market, is as wonderful as ever…
