Shokudo Japanese Coffee House introduces a revamped menu, adding a slew of new items to the extensive menu encompassing over 130 items, in conjunction with the celebration of fresh spring blossoms in Japan.
A brand by ThaiExpress Concepts Pte Ltd, Shokudo Japanese Coffee House is best known for its Yoshoku-style Japanese cuisine –a style of Western-influenced Japanese cuisine.
Mount Fuji Curry Omu Rice ($16.80)
A notable new highlight ready to knock curry lovers off their socks is the Mount Fuji Curry Omu Rice, which features scrumptious omelette rice topped with a thick slab of juicy beef patty concealing melty cheese in between, huddled together in a shallow pool of their signature Japanese curry, topped with fresh greens, and served with potato salad and pickles on the side.
Rosti with Japanese Curry ($9.80)
Fans of Japanese curry will also take delight in this Rosti that’s essentially Japanese-style shredded potatoes lightly crisped on the surfaces, served with their signature Japanese curry.
Another highlight would be the Doburi that’s served in a hot stone bowl and accompanied by poached egg, miso soup and pickles.
The Donburi comes with your choice of protein: Tori Teriyaki, Tonkatsu, Unatama, Buta or Tori Karagge.
Tonkatsu Donburi ($14.80)
The Tonkatsu Donburi receives nods with the succulent pork cutlet encased in a delightfully crispy crust. Lightly pierce the poached egg and allow the golden runny yolk to coat the grains of rice beneath with richness.
Unagi Mushroom Cheese Pizza ($14.80)
Grilled unagi and shitake mushrooms on cheesy crispy pizza
If you like your pizza crust thin and crisp, Shokudo’s version will gratify. Soon to be greedily grabbed the moment it lands on the table, this irresistible pizza is so light on the stomach you can afford to eat extra slices without feeling the guilt. What really clinched the deal for me was the exemplary choice of pizza topping –the savoury goodness of the grilled unagi left me yearning for more.
Seafood Avocado Carbonara Pasta ($15.80)
Comfort food arrives in the form of a cream-based pasta. The Seafood Avocado Carbonara Pasta comes with a generous amount of scallops, squid, prawns and clams, doused in a lip-smacking miso cream sauce. The avocado provides a contrasting texture that’s ultimately a pleasant surprise; it mingles with the other ingredients in perfect union without any incongruity.
Ryoshi Fish Burger ($10.80)
This is one satiating fish burger that does not cost a dent in the wallet. Just look at the size of the ‘patty’! The fish fillet, moist and tender, dons an enticing crisp crust, and is accompanied by lettuce, cheese, egg and bun, served with a bucket of fries on the side.
Shokudo Yuzu Chicken Wing ($7.80)
For light bites and sides, the Shokudo Yuzu Chicken Wing is worth ordering. Chicken wings are marinated in a homemade yuzu concoction, and cooked to succulent perfection.
Tamago Tofu ($5.80)
Tofu lovers must not miss out on this new-fangled rendering, the Tamago Tofu –deep-fried egg tofu rolled with bonito flakes and topped with fish roe.
Iced Milk Matcha Float ($6.80)
Mango Smoothie ($7.80)
Matcha Parfait ($7.80)
Japanese chestnuts, matcha mocha and matcha ice cream
Waffle with Ice Cream ($6.80)
