Bishoku Ryori. That means food that promotes beauty. Shirokiya which just opened its second outlet at CHIJMES continues to focus on food which is good from the inside-out.

Their highlight dish is the Bisyoku Nabe ($38.80 for 2-3 pax), a ‘beauty’ hot pot where the soup based made of special ‘chicken and collagen’ stock. Kurobata Kimuchi Nabe and Tomato Nabe soups are also available.

Do not be overly shocked if your soup comes in the form of a white blob that integrates into the pot when heat is released. Part of you may be thinking what that contains. My advice: Don’t think too much, just enjoy.

I would recommend the Kurobuta Shabu Shabu, where you get thinly sliced pork, also known as the ancient breed of pig known as Black Berkshire.

What I liked about the soup base was its lightness and not being overly salty, allowing you to savour the meat and vegetables in its full natural flavours.

Eat and get good skin? Many Shirokiya dishes contains ingredients with collagen, hyaluronic acid, capsaicin and lycopene – these may mean a lot to some, but foreign to others, but they supposedly promote cellular renewal, increase metabolism and neutralises free radical.

There are also new items introduced featuring more of shio-koji, salted rice malt which adds more umami flavors to various types of dishes.

Cold Tofu marinated with shio-koji ($8.80), Fresh Salmon Belly Yukky ($11.80), Bonito Fish Marinated with Ponzu Sauce ($7.80) and Steamed Rice in Traditional Tomato Sauce with melted cheese served in hot sauce bowl ($14) … already sounds oishii!

  1. I like to go for the tried and tested -Bisyoku Nabe with seafood ingredients! It sounds like a brilliant combination and I can't wait to try it!

  2. Would love to try cold tofu sprinkled with malt dressing, freshly hot tofu, sashimi and of course the famous korubuta beauty hot pot:D but really, I can’t decide since everything else looks too good. *drools* I love Japanese food <333 nomnomnom

  4. Would love to try the Bisyoku Nabe, which advocates that awesome food can be healthy too! Ideal choice for healthy Christmas feasting!

  5. I would like to have Kurobuta Shabu Shabu and a chance to meet you, to know the person behind this awesome blog which I have been following for years. Merry Xmas in advance, Danielfooddiary!! hehe

  6. Thanks for the nice recommendation food post! The food looks so tasty to me! I would love to try out the fresh salmon belly yukky:) can’t wait to see more new exciting blog post from you!!

  7. I would like to try the collagen pot (Bisyoku babe). The last time I tried it (at another restaurant), it was quite good. Wanted to see if Shirokiya’s is better. 🙂

  8. I want to try…the soup. The dubious one with the white blob. 😉 And I’d bring my mum whose birthday is on 12/12. Since she loves rice, I’m already guessing that the Steamed Rice in Traditional Tomato Sauce with Melted Cheese served in Hot Sauce Bowl will be her favourite. You promise to be a good host; I promise my mom & I would be great and supportive guests.

  10. Dear Jason Soh, Michelle Tan, Eileen Lim, Franny Wanny, and Nicholas Ng, Congrats on winning this giveaway. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the dinner will NOT be held at Shirokiya but at another restaurant (which I will pay out of my own pocket – we will still continue to have fun). See you tomorrow. Check your inboxes for details!
