Reviews of good food at Shukuu Izakaya & Sake Bar
Pork Jowl Charshu

Really nice cozy ambience with great food which goes extremely well with their Sakae. Tried their Mentaiko Rosti and Pork Jowl Charshu and I could already imagine myself going back for it again and again.

This Place Is A Gem!

Great ambience full of Japanese vibes, awesome food and sake, friendly staff, accessible location for the downtown working crowd, and perfect for some catching up with friends.

Food wise, I highly recommend the mentaiko rosti and gratin, we polished it off entirely and almost ordered second servings if not for the many other dishes coming up. Also enjoyed the pork jowl char shu that melts in your mouth. Oden soup at the end was warm and comforting and reminded me of Japan. There's also a good variety on the menu that's great for sharing.

Only regret? Wish the portions were bigger haha. Definitely be back for more!

Highly Recommended!

I would highly recommend the very flavourful pork jowl chashu, the aburi shimesaba that was prepared in such a refreshing way with vinegar and the sashimi grade Hokkaido scallops with mentaiko/cheese. Some dishes also worth trying include the rosti mentaiko, Kani gratin and skewers. This meal was made complete with the sake recommended, and you should have some to go along with your meal.

Hidden gem in Tanjong Pagar

A hidden gem in the Tanjong Pagar area that is saturated with food choices, Shukuu Izakaya is definitely worth a visit. Stepping into the restaurant transports you to Japan, with carefully curated furniture and décor to create the ambience. The food served does not disappoint, either. I would highly recommend the sashimi-grade scallop that was seared to perfection. Another favourite was the Aburi Shimesaba – marinated in vinegar, the saba did not have even the slightest ‘fishy’ taste that one would expect. It was tender and easy on the palate, a must-try for all seafood lovers!

Forget What You Knew About Gratin

Kani Gratin ($7)
Too good to not to burn your lips, creamy and well-balanced, I'd like one more!

Shukuu Izakaya has a well-crafted menu (not huge, but very complete) with everything you can wish for in an Izakaya. I will highly recommend the squid ink calamari, iberico charshu, and the 6pc Oden soup dish!

Complimentary Salad Bar W Purchase Of Lunch Set(one Time Only)

Came here for the kani gratin but it's only available during dinner. Same for the yaki gyutan and all other ala carte menus so q disappointed. They really need to make it clear

Otherwise the food is pretty decent. The eggplant skin was rather leathery but aside from that the salad bar was good.
Japanese style Potato salad and tofu were pretty standard but the actual salad was surprisingly addictive! Probably the most impressive item on the salad bar today. Sweet, sour and crunchy, they even made the usually bitter lettuce palatable.

Gyudon Lunch Set 14++

Quintissential gyudon. Beef was thin, soft and flavourful. Probably my favourite gyudon in singapore rn and the only problem was the slightly overcooked onsen egg

Kurobuta Spare Ribs Lunch Set19++

Yeah so only lunch sets are available during lunch and none of the ala carte items are available.

The spare ribs were soft and succulent, rather similar in texture to the dim sum ribs(slightly gelatinuous and not resembling meat). Goes really well with the sauce drizzled on the rice which can be rather strong taken on its own. One of the more expensive items on the lunch menu but still q worth.

Portion isnt very big but guess that's what the salad bar is for

Beating Monday blues

We had a good end to a long working day by coming here. The ambience is lively and the same helps take the edge off. The barbecue selection in particular was quite enjoyable. Would come back again!

Amazing Beef (Gyu Ponzu)

At $8, this dish is super worth it. The flavours of the beef, ebiko, and ponzu sauce work in harmony. Would definitely recommend it!

Who can resist a good bowl of Chashu don?! Not me that’s for sure. [Lunch Set]

Available during lunch, Shukuu Izakaya’s Iberico Pork Jowl Chashu Don ($17) was an easy favourite. Slow cooked to succulent, tender slices and topped with an addictive savoury-sweet sauce, the meat was a perfect cut - good ratio of fats in each bite. Each lunch set also comes with a free bowl of salad off their salad bar. And like always be sure to mix in the runny egg hiding at the side with the melty pork as well as the bed of fluffy white Japanese rice. Good value, though the waiting time for the food is a little long and the portions are relatively small.

Mini Negitoro Don

💸 $10

Not kidding about the "mini". It's about the size of a fist but surprisingly it filled me up pretty well. Wouldn't say that it was amazing but it was not bad! I mixed it all up sans the wasabi and it kind of tasted like a mixed rice ball. Definitely picture worthy but maybe not so much tastebud worthy 😅

Aburi Shimesaba $13

Traditionally cured with salt and vinegar for preservation, the mackerel is given the flame torch treatment which in my opinion always makes things better.

Taste: 3/5
