HOT OFF THE GRILL

We are excited to announce the opening of modern Sumiyaki restaurant Jinjo – the latest addition to our vibrant collection of restaurants at Shaw Centre. Helmed by veteran washoku chef Makoto Saito, Jinjo is where traditional Japanese fare is presented with a contemporary spirit.

Japanese charcoal-grilling mastery is celebrated through a prefecture focused menu where prime seasonal ingredients are sourced from all over Japan, so that guests get the best flavours of the season. Cooked over charcoal, these ingredients are imbued with a delicious smokiness.

Highlights of the menu include Yaki Goma tofu (handmade tofu with red miso from Aichi), Nodoguro (Black throat sea perch from Ishikawa), Satsuma-Imo (Sweet potatoes harvested in Chiba for spring and summer, and in Okinawa for Autumn and Winter), Seseri (Grilled chicken neck served with Miyazaki style) and many more.

Complete the dining experience with our selection of prefecture focused sake menu, specially curated to pair the taste profile of Jinjo’s sumiyaki items.

So come on down to Shaw Centre and join us at our new restaurant. We can’t wait to share this experience with you.

STARTING 2018 ON A SWEET NOTE

Hello 2018! It’s the dawn of a brand new year and it doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice – we would like to invite you to join us for an exciting ride as we reveal the various plans that the group has up her sleeve.

After months of planning, we are excited to announce that Tarte by Cheryl Koh has relocated to Level 2 (#02-12) of Shaw Centre and is now open for business!

Uncover a cosy dining area, and an expanded menu featuring a curated selection of beverages, as well as tantalising sweet and savoury treats. Having a bigger space and a dining area allows us to push the envelope when it comes to how we would like our guest to enjoy our tarts and other confectioneries. Coffee and tea is no longer just an afterthought. Instead, it takes centre stage by elevating the experience and taste profiles when you bite into our various creations.

At Tarte, we believe that the role of a chef isn’t about just creating a meal or preparing a dessert, it is about crafting an overall dining experience that excites, surprises and delights the individual and their senses. It is about balancing flavours, experimenting with different textures, and telling a story with the food and beverages served.

We can’t wait to welcome you into our new patisserie. It is good to be back!

NEW WINE BAR IN THE HEART OF ORCHARD ROAD

If you can identify with the saying, “a day without wine is a day without sunshine” then you will be excited to learn that the group has a new addition to our ever-expanding family of concepts – La Taperia Wine & Tapas.

A spin-off from La Taperia Restaurant, which also happens to be just a stone’s throw away from the main restaurant, the wine bar boasts a well-curated collection of Spanish wines, with a good mix of other old and new world wines. Spend the night swirling and sipping an assortment of wines cherry-picked for you by our team of sommeliers while tucking into a variety of tapas.

Our philosophy? Eat, drink and be merry!

Location: Shaw Centre, #02-18

A NEW CHAPTER AHEAD FOR LA STRADA
