Les Amis Group presents the latest addition to its vibrant collection of restaurants at Shaw Centre, Jinjo. A modern sumiyaki restaurant helmed by veteran washoku chef Makoto Saito – this is where traditional Japanese fare is presented with a contemporary spirit. The façade is discreet and seemingly simple. Yet enter through the low doorway and find yourself in an edgy yet welcoming space, where the atmosphere is boisterous as it is relaxing.
Japanese charcoal-grilling mastery is celebrated through a prefecture focused menu at Jinjo – offering an assortment of seasonal ingredients such as black throat sea perch from Ishikawa (Nodoguro), Miyazaki-style chicken neck (Seseri), fresh oyster from Hiroshima (Kaki), king crab leg from Hokkaido (Tarabagani), sweet leeks from Gunma (Negi), garlic from Aomori (Ninniku); and sweet potato (Satsuma-Imo) harvested in Chiba for Spring and Summer, and in Okinawa for Autumn and Winter– just so that diners get the best flavours of the season. Cooked over charcoal, prime seasonal ingredients, which have been sourced from all over Japan, are imbued with a delicious smokiness and transformed into delectable dishes.
The dining experience at Jinjo is completed by a selection from our extensive sake menu. Curated specially to match the taste profile of Jinjo’s sumiyaki items, the list is also a representation of the best from the different prefectures of Japan.
Come for a solo meal to recompose in the middle of a hectic day, or with a group for a celebratory feast. Come as you are – and leave the rest to us.
