Macau’s Shinji by Kanesaka offers ‘N’ sake experience
Tranquil décor makes it cosy for an indulgent omakase meal
The décor is tranquil, Zen-like at Shinji by Kanesaka, with a cypress wood counter and kanji characters on the wall. It offers a cosy setting for an indulgent omakase meal. Diners can choose between a sushi edomae set and omakase specials, which include sashimi and cooked items.
The sashimi and sushi are beautifully presented from the protégé of chef Shinji, and the fresh wasabi, grated in front of you, elevates each bite. Nevertheless, the other dishes more than stand up to the raw fish. The restaurant has a decent selection of sake, the pièce de résistance is undoubtedly “N” by Hidetoshi Nakata, and Shinji by Kanaseka stocks limited-edition bottles created for sake connoisseurs.
