Japanese Food

Our food is created by a Japanese chef, with a focus on traditional flavours that we miss from Japan. 

Besides popular tapas-style soulfood such as karaagé and takoyaki, we also offer special dishes such as sea scallops, and wagyu Japanese beef. Wagyu from Japan is considered the most delicious beef in the world.

Japanese Cocktails

We love cocktails! Most of our syrups and infused spirits are made in-house, giving our cocktails a unique SHIN flavour. We also incorporate many of the traditional Japanese ingredients into our cocktails, such as yuzu kosho, sake, and matcha. This combination often results in a great pairing with the food we serve.

Do you like Japanese whiskies? Then SHIN is the place to try some local Japanse whiskies, but also special whiskies. Various whisky tasting boards are available. 

The best way to enjoy Japanese whisky is by enjoying it together with good friends. We wish you many unforgettable moments at SHIN’s Japanese whisky bar :)
