Shintori, Shanghai, China

From the moment you enter  this dark and mysterious sanctuary offers a delicious twist to the usual Japanese cuisine. Designed by Christopher Arisaka Carey, Shintori is the most recent addition to the shintori collection of restaurants. The Rock and roll salad tossed at your table in a large glass tube before being scooped into a wooden bowl sets the tone for the dishes to come, from the “pu leaf” wrapped Sizzling beef flash cooked as you like on a hot stone or juicy scallops cheese crumbed and grilled on the shell, to cold noodles served in a carved ice bowl with a refreshing wasabi flavour kick, all presented in such a way it’s like eating your way through an art gallery installation. Each dish is a real talking piece.
