It has been rainy season recently, and hence I needed some heartwarming soup for the soul. Enter Shabuya at Vivocity.
Being full house on Sunday, I am glad I made a booking in advance as I saw time and time people being turned away at the door.
I went with the wagyu beef ($25), which had a good level of marbling. Simple dipping in its shoyu based soup was all that was needed.
I also went with the seafood deluxe ($58) - which came with scallops, salmon, prawns, swordfish and cod. I liked that the prawns were peeled. A lot of restaurants do not do this as they want the prawns to look juicier and bigger, but having the prawns peeled with th head and tail still intact made it so much more convenience to eat.
To add some fibre in my meal, I went with the mixed vegetables ($9.90). This was a good value for a large amount of cabbage, golden mushrooms and tofu. Feel a lot of healthier after eating my veg.
I also ordered a Tempura Moriwase ($13.90) which had prawns and vegetables because I thought that cooking the food would take awhile. But I realised that most of the items I tried cooked quickly so it became a redundant item. Oh well.
Overall, an enjoyable experience, and one can take a nice waterfront boardwalk stroll after dinner to walk out the sumptuous meal.
