Sho Sho embraces the Japanese Izakaya way of dining, where small plates are meant to be savored with drinks… and to that end, the restaurant definitely dishes out mouthwatering bite-sized options. 

For instance, the Spencer Gulf tempura delivers a savory, crispy, and succulent seafood experience. 

The pork and prawn wontons are also a flavor explosion, with a perfect blend of savory pork and sweet prawns. Tangy black vinegar and the aromatic kick of ginger oil make this dish better.

We then suggest finishing with the sweet, creamy, and aromatic persimmon creme brûlée with caramelized Okinawa sugar and a scoop of fragrant jasmine tea ice cream.

If you go around noon, try their lunch specialty, the smoked bacon broth ramen, featuring tender pork belly chashu, soy-infused egg, and pickled bamboo.
