Shinji by Kanesaka, tucked away in a quiet corner of Raffles Hotel, Singapore’s oldest and best-loved hotel, is an extension of 2-star Michelin Chef Shinji Kanesaka’s Edo-style sushi restaurant first set up in Tokyo’s exclusive Ginza district. The deep-rooted philosophy underpinning this endeavour is simply a passionate desire to share an appreciation for age-old Japanese culinary traditions without compromising its integrity.
Shinji by Kanesaka pays homage to the core of Japanese culture and art as defined by ‘kata’ and ‘do’. True to the spirit of its heritage, the restaurant is built on a carefully woven foundation of key elements which promises an authentic dining experience.
An omakase menu (a menu selection entrusted entirely to the chef) is featured and skillfully executed by a native Japanese team of artisan chefs with Master Chef Koichiro Oshino at the helm. Further embodying the Japanese fine dining experience is the restaurant’s okami-san who makes sure that restaurant guests are cared for.
Shinji by Kanesaka is Chef Kanesaka’s first venture outside Japan and it honours the same prodigious quality that made him an esteemed character in the culinary world.
Master Chef Koichiro Oshino is a visionary who has devoted his life to mastering his art.
Chef Oshino’s calling has led him from the prime streets of Ginza to the heart of the Netherlands where he spent 3 years as sushi chef at Yamazato in Hotel Okura Amsterdam.
Now in Singapore, Chef Oshino is no stranger to his role as culinary ambassador and shares Chef Kanesaka’s sushi-do philosophy – to stage their artistry beyond the shores of their native homeland while staying true to its origins.
At Shinji by Kanesaka, Chef Oshino takes his stewardship very seriously and has cultivated a profound, poetic approach to what he does. Every encounter is greatly valued and cherished for the beauty of its transcience.
