[SG EATS] Kaiseki Restaurant Shima’s Exquisite Winter Menu

Our guest writer, Felicia visited Shima restaurant recently and raved about the food here.So when the invite for their Exquisite Winter Menu is here, I got the chance to visit the restaurant this time round. The winter menu is curated by Chef Hoshiba Fumihiko, who has over 40 years of culinary experience.

Kaiseki dining is a traditional multi-course Japanese dining experience. The ingredients used for kaiseki menus are seasonal ingredients and carefully prepared with cooking techniques that bring out the ingredients’ natural flavours. The chef then prepared with 5 fundamental methods of cooking including steamed, simmered, fried, grilled and raw.

Here are the dishes from the Winter Menu:
