Shyun Japanese in Carnegie on Koornang Road

If you want to go to Shyun in Carnegie, you have to plan ahead.  They allow bookings so that’s exactly what we did. Just like my last experience at Shyun, I enjoyed my meal there very much.  Again we were fascinated by the ipad ordering system (and a little worried given all the signs saying no cancellations – there were multiple children keen to play with any tablet they could get their hands on).

The only menu item I didn’t like was the soft shell crab sushi rolls – there wasn’t much crab and the few pieces that were present tasted like cardboard.  Because of the lack of filling it seemed like a lot of rice.  I was so surprised! I’ve tried their rolls before and loved how fresh they were.

I’m glad to report the rest of the meal was fantastic.  I couldn’t resist ordering the teriyaki tofu again and my friends liked it as well.

The okonomiyaki skewers tastes rather different from any okonomiyaki I’ve tasted – but in a good way!  Crunchy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. Of course, this dish comes topped with the right sauce – a combination of mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce.

We ordered the vegetarian version of nasu dengaku to avoid mince (my friend doesn’t eat pork) – it didn’t top Shiranui’s but it wasn’t bad!

This time we tried the tempura don – you can choose to have the tempura served separately if you’re finicky like me and want tempura crunchy and not softened by steam/soup (as in udon).  This dish boasts a generous portion of tempura as you can see!

Next time I’ll stick with the shyun house roll – apart from that there’s plenty of other things I’d like to try! After my visit to Tokyo last year, I figured out I love cold udon. I must go before this summer special isn’t served anymore.
