Went for my first OpenRice food tasting last Saturday and we were been fed with so much food, it was almost insane! Very thankful for Shinkei and OpenRice for the invite & generosity! ^_^
The most attractive part in ShinKei is the pricing. It's unbelieveably super worthwhile. Dont believe? Scroll below to see the food that we had on Saturday.
Super smooth chawamushi! Kid's favourite and mine too! Hee
I quite like the pork salad with sesame sauce drizzled on it. I think sesame sauce is probably one of the greatest invention in Japanese cuisine, it seems to match with almost every thing. =)
Not forgetting the little pine nuts for the extra crunch. Sometimes, it's those little small details that made a simple dish outstanding.
Nothing will go wrong with Japanese Potato Salad, smooth and cooling (Keke, as it was served cold!)
Without realising, I finished the cold noodles, meaning it was nice lah!
The platter itself can easily cost $30+ in other japanese resturant, but here at Shinkei, you are just paying $30+ for many many sashimi platter plus many many other japanese goodies. Really super worth it.
And the best part, they served my favourite aburi salmon and all the sashimi were thick & fresh.
For people who "die die must eat rice", there are thick sashimi on small sushi balls.
Yaki Tori (Chicken in skewer)
Tsukune (Chicken Meat Ball)
Asuparagasu Be-Kon (Asparagus Wrapped with Bacon)
Satsuma Age (Home-made Japanese fish cake)
Shitake (Japanese mushrooms)
The owner shared that the grilled dishes are their signature dishes, and I thought so too. The aromatic smell already won our hearts. Moreover, all the dishes was prepared by the staff from scratch with the raw ingredients, not those ready made one okay! I loved the chicken, asparagus/bacon and meat ball skewers.

Overall, I would say the varieties and the pricing is the most appealing part. Can you believe that it's just $38++ for dinner for adult? "Ridiculous" but we love kind restaurant owner like that, right? Hehe
There are cooked food for the elders, sashimi platter for people who likes raw stuff, fried food for the food junker / kids. The only "missing" item is probably dessert, but hey, dont be too picky, the price "compensates" it and Macdonald's 70cent ice-cream cone is just beside Shinkei. Keke
