Love from Asia @Shizusan Shophouse and Bar

Inspired from the colonial era , Shizusan Shophouse & Bar is a beautifully articulated interior themed shophouse serving delicacies worldwide from Asia . The menu is so widespread and carefully curated covering authentication and countries like Thailand , Korea ,Vietnam , India , Bali , Japan and the unheard ones like Halo Halo . Each item in the menu has a careful & beautiful description of the story behind ingredients and that dish from the country . So it becomes a great learning for all foodies .
