We were seated in this nice and quiet private dining room with a glass window overlooking the bustling road - it was such a contrast. They have an extensive menu, but I think one will only enjoy browsing through it because it is a touch screen menu with photos that’ll make you drool over it! What’s the gadget? Yes, Ipad! In Ishin, paper menu seems so yesterday. Be cautious though, those yummy photos will lure you to order more!
We all were craving for Aburi Toro but luck was not on our side that night as Toro was out-of-stock. Alternatively, we ordered raw Salmon belly to curb our cravings. Although we would prefer to have it lightly grilled but this option is not available at Ishin. The salmon belly was nicely cut and fresh but somehow it was lack of the heavenly taste that I’d normally get from the lightly grilled version.
3 Taste Mini Chawan Mushi – too cute to resist!
Cheese Grilled Half Shell Oyster
The foods were at a satisfactory level but somehow, it failed to impress every single of us. There are plenty of Japanese restaurants with similar price range and even better quality. But for myself, nevertheless, I don’t mind to go back again :)
P/s: I have one thing to complain though. My cold soba came very late even we have reminded them for 2 times!
