Embracing the concept of 美食料理(food that promotes beauty) , Shirokiya serves up standard Japanese dishes like most izakayas, but with a healthy twist. For instance, the Shio Koji (salted rice malt) dressing imparts flavors sufficiently to the Cold Tofu ($8.89), so you doesn't really need to resort to the red miso paste at the side.

It is heartening to know that Hydraluronic acid jelly--a key to soft supple skin, is tossed into the citrusy Avocado and Seafood salad ($20.80), but it can do with more of such good stuff. I liked the crab mayonnaise and scallops but not the raw salmon as it was not very fresh.

The Bonito Fish Cooked in Hay Straw ($14), reminded me of the Smoked Tataki dish from Shikoku prefecture, but it lacked the smoky accents from charcoal fire and was not very fresh.

Thankfully, the Boiled Pressed Mackerel ($15.80) did not suffer from fishy-ness but the grains might need a bit more vinegar to bind the flavours.

I love crunchy chicken wings but these Ultimate Fried Chicken Wings ($18.80) were overly done such that the meat became sorely dry. A great pity because the sweet marinade pepped up with white pepper deserved a thumbs-up.

The Kurobuta Shabu Shabu ($38.80 for 2-3 pax) also boasts some beauty benefits with the addition of collagen into the chicken soup. Though no MSG is claimed to be used in Shirokiya, I found the soup slightly too salty. It might be good to know that the soy ingredients of the desserts such as warabi mocha $7.80 shown here or soy milk pudding, come from our local Mr Bean. Though I was rather disillusioned by the overall experience, perhaps the potential lies in other dishes, given the diversity of the menu which you can check online.
