8 places at Palais Renaissance to fulfil your shopping needs
There's something for everyone, from one Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant to gorgeous bling.
Food for the soul
There is no lack of restaurants in Singapore when it comes to satiating your Japanese food fix; Shatoburian Yakiniku, however, stands out for all the right reasons. The nose-to-tail restaurant specialises in prime cuts of beef, in particular Hida beef from the Gifu Prefecture, to appeal to discerning diners. Its emphasis on sourcing the best ingredients from different parts of Japan is evident in its new Spring menu which features the Premium Yakiniku Don ($118). The rice bowl is topped with chef’s choice of Wagyu beef (changes daily, two different cuts of Wagyu will be given), glazed foie gras, Hokkaido sea urchin, caviar, onsen egg and a serving of fresh seasonal black truffles. For non-beef eaters, pre-order (three days in advance) the special Gohan of the Season ($258). It offers Hokkaido sea urchin, ikura and shavings of black truffles, as well Akita Japanese rice, all cooked in a cast-iron pot. #02-08. Tel: 6904 3308

If you love the smoky flavour and juiciness of grilled meats, Ishinomaki Grill & Sake Bar is just the place for you. The casual Japanese restaurant serves authentic robatayaki (grilled) dishes and sashimi slices paired with a wide array of sake – pick from over 150 labels of sake, from sweet to dry sake such as Tokubetsu Honjozo and Junmai Daiqinjo.

Chef Tomoo Kimura who spent two decades crafting his art under sushi masters in Tokyo and Singapore is now chef-owner of Sushi Kimura. The cosy one Michelin-starred restaurant offers just 12 counter seats and two private rooms that can host another 12 diners.
Most diners will rave about Kimura’s top-notch sushi and the deftly crafted morsels do make Sushi Kimura a must-visit for gastronomes. The Signature Rice Bowl (part of the lunch omakase menu and set dinner menu) is, however, the undiscovered star. The premium rice bowl comes with A-grade Tsuya-hime rice seasoned with aged vinegar is generously topped with chopped toro, onsen tamago, ikura and uni. #01-07. Tel: 6734 3520
