There was a period of time where I constantly saw photos of Shyun, especially their chirashi, so it from then that I made a mental note to visit it one day. The opportunity finally presented itself one day when I was visiting a friend who lived quite close to Shyun.
|Front – Salmon Rolls – $2.50
Back – Prawn Rolls – $2.50
My friend wasn’t too hungry, and decided to just get a couple of hand rolls. We’re pretty sure they gave us two of each rolls instead of one, so score, LOL. These sushi rolls were very fresh, I liked the rice quite a bit, they were not gluggy at all, and had just the right amount of acidity from the vinegar.
|Chirashi (L) – $17.90|
Of course I went for the chirashi that I have coveted for so long. There was salmon, tuna, kingfish, prawn, eel, green tobiko, scallops and egg rolls, on top of a bed of sushi rice. The sashimi were all very fresh, I enjoyed the scallops especially. I thought the eel/unagi (AHAHA Ross in Friends) was kind of random, it was served cold because I think if it’s hot it would partially cook the sashimi it’s sitting on true?
Shyun wasn’t mind-blowingly amazing, but I can see how it could be very appealing if you live around the area. I’m glad that I got to try it out for myself, with that being said though, I probably won’t go out of my way to eat there again.
How to get there:
Shyun is on Koornung Road, a 5 mins walk from Carnegie station, which is on the Pakenham and Cranbourne line.
