Shira Nui

I just got back home from a very wonderful dinner with Hubby. It's his 31st Birthday today and I made a reservation last week at Shira Nui. I had being wondering where to celebrate since 2 weeks ago. Taxi, Jamon Sushi together with Shira Nui were is the list. Decided we should try Shira Nui and were lucky we are able to get a table for 2 at 6pm. As there is a booking at 8pm, we are informed during booking that we required to finish our mean by 8pm which I don't think we will have any problem at all. They even called me at 4pm to check my reservation. *I'm impressed*

We had a hard time deciding what we should have. Omakase??? It the end we had À la carte as we wanted to try more variety of their menu.

Me + 2 chefs behind the counter. We were the 1st few customers when they open at 6pm and we requested the counter seats.

FOC Appetizer. Sweet and Sour Fish.

Beware! Food photos from this point onwards! Photos presented are from the start to last. The waitress did check which dish we like to start first. We didn't have any preference. We just want FOOD!

Chefs at work, preparing our Sashimi
Chef on the right is the head chef also the owner. Cutting of sashimi and sushi is done by him. Chef on the left is in-charge of assembling and presenting the food. They work as a team.

1st dish of the night, Sashimi Main. OMG!!!! The fishes are all thickly slice, sweet and FRESH. The prawn was really fantastic. I don't used to like prawn sashimi but this has definitely change.

9 pieces Sushi. The rice is totally covered by the main ingredient. This dish is split between both of us. Hmmm looking at the picture now...."Lau Gong, how many sushi did you eat???"

While waiting for 3rd dish of the night, hubby started ordering more. Hehe

Mix Tempura. It's delicious. Not oily and crispy.

4th dish is Unagi Pressed Sushi. I'm was extremely impress by this dish. The Unagi was lightly torched on the top, filling in the middle and complete with sauce when served.

Last dish impress Hubby the most. Beef sushi. Beef was lightly grilled and dipped with sauce before assembling the dish together. Chef told us no soya is require for this dish when presented to us.

We managed to end the meal with dessert! I'm kinda surprise our tummy still have room for dessert or Elsie's theory "Dessert is for the other compartment" apply tonight.

Hubby had Japanese Fruit Salad. It consists of Green Tea Rice Cake, Original Rice Cake, Red Beans, Green Tea Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream and Fruits.

I had Black Sesame Creme Brulee with Vanilla Ice Cream and Fruits.

We had a fantastic dining experience at Shira Nui. Waitress are very attentive. Dirty plates are being changed and table cleaned before every dish. The chef made sure we didn't have to wait long for our dishes. They closely monitor our eating speed. Maximum two dishes are presented to us at one time. We also notice they are very hygiene, food already prepared by head chef but in line waiting for presentation will be covered.

I have to start thinking how to convince myself to go back Shira Nui and try their Omakase.
Hmmm......think our 8th year anniversary is exactly 3 weeks time follow by 3rd year wedding anniversary in less than 2 weeks after that.
*hint*....you know what to do right? Hubby
