A welcome respite from the crowds at Vivocity mall, the spacious 180-seater Shin Kushiya is cool and casual at the same time, thanks to its polished concrete floors and industrial ceilings that contrast with wooden booths and wooden pendant lamps. Best of all, the kitchen focuses on two major Japanese crowd-pleasers: sushi and grilled skewers, or kushiyaki. In fact, Shin Kushiya serves a whopping 50 varieties of kushiyaki, expertly grilled over 1,200-degree temperatures using special binchotan charcoal. Pair that with Japanese-style service and affordable set lunches, and it’s easy to see why Shin Kushiya has been beloved for a decade. And not to worry—Shin Kushiya also serves donburi, katsu and menrui, so there’s something for everyone.
