Chef de Cuisine Kenny Trinh leads his team at Shiki in the Intercontinental Hotel to serve up one of Adelaide’s finest Japanese displays.
This vintage venue features oak and amber woods, subtle classical music and attentive service. While there are views of Adelaide Oval, your eye will also be drawn to the mastery of the teppanyaki chefs as they display their skills in the kitchen theatre.
Shiki is bringing Japan right into the heart of Adelaide, with a well-balanced à la carte menu, as well as several tasting menus. The takoyaki balls are a great way to start, so light and fluffy and filled with small bite-size pieces of tender octopus, coated with a rich tonkatsu sauce, sweet Japanese mayo and bonito flakes. Fried tofu layered in a broth bath, crisp and airy tempura vegetables, and seared beef tataki with grated chilli, radish and ponzu sauce are among the appetising choices available – so more-ish you’ll want to try them all.
PSST! With a selection of shochu, Adelaide wines, Japanese sakes, plum wines and beers presenting so many tempting options, it isn’t easy to choose!
