I recalled one of William Shakespeare’s quote “Can one desire too much of a good thing?” (In “As You Like It”). To a lot of foodies, I presume, the answer is unanimous… Yes! That is why we have buffet! Buffets are definitely one of Singaporean’s favorite thing to do with families, colleagues and friends. Singaporeans love food, be it eating, talking, sharing, blogging and some even making them too.

So, we had a little fun food challenge held at Shin Minori on 2nd August evening. We were the main sponsor for the venue and food. 4 wonderful food influencers were invited to this interesting food challenge. They can be found in instagram by their names: mshannahchia, evilbean, nahmj and mightyfoodie. For this challenge, more than 50 assortment items such as chawamushi, sushi, maki, tempura, ramen, soup, yaki tori, handroll, onigiri, garlic fried rice, gyoza etc. were chosen from Shin Minori ala-carte Japanese buffet menu.

Normally, when we dine and eat slowly, we can enjoy the taste and consume more. But for this challenge, it was all about speed and these 4 food influencers were given a mere 15 minutes to consume as much food as possible. The one who completed the most plates/ bowls within the stipulated time, would be announced the winner.

After 15 minutes, the winner was birthed. He was none other than Mightyfoodie, who lived up to his good name! He finished whopping 16 plates of food. Applause!

After the challenge, all Influencers were given Enzyplex to help improve their digestion. We had an enjoyable time afterwards, chatting about what else… good food again!

To usher in a joyous Chinese New Year, Shin Minori is proud to partner with SMU for their welfare drive, which they organized for their students, to bring about a greater camaraderie. Our restaurant gladly sponsored 8 sets of Harvest Yusheng for the SMU Bondue 100 students, to celebrate the Chinese New Year on the 2nd Feb 2016.

Shin Minori’s Harvest Yusheng is a salad dish made up of shredded white and green radish, carrots, pomelo, fried flour pieces, freshly sliced salmon and topped with our special house apple ponzo sauce, crushed peanuts, cinnamon, sesame seeds and other spices. Yusheng is a popular dish in Singapore’s Chinese New Year dinner, as the diners speak auspicious words and toss the Yusheng during this festive occasion. It is considered as auspicious as it enunciated Abundance and Life. The tossing action known as “Lo Hei” is like tossing up good fortune on the start of the brand new lunar new year.

We are pleased to see the students having fun during the tossing of Yusheng and enjoying the precious moments of coming together as a “family”. The joy on their faces as they are eating it, clearly showed us that the Harvest Yusheng served its purpose of being the highlight and attraction of the event.

Happy Chinese Year, everyone!
