The tagline for Shiro is "where Sushi is Fashion". I found that out after we had the meal. Had I known I would have proceeded with caution.
The lunch menu was relatively small with a few items to choose from and they all seemed pretty pricey. Bentos were a;sp available for around HK$200 each. Since I was not clear whether the bentos were for take-away only or not and the waitress was no where to be seen I chose from the menu instead to save time and hassle.
My negi toro (HK$178) looked very fancy indeed. Too bad it had no taste! If I was blindfolded I would never have guessed that I was eating toro, or should I say fish for that matter. Somehow the pile of mashed up fish didn't taste of anything. The raw quail egg was pretty scary too. A total disappointment and for what they are charging I would expect more!
Since there was not a whole lot of things to choose from we got an eel rice (HK$138) even though it was expensive. Well at least we got 2 huge pieces of eel and they were actually quite nice, still we thought it was a bit over priced.
Lunch for two came to HK$370. We had to pay for our tea and the non-existing service.
I think while sushi is fashion it should also be decent. It's easy to forget that when you have a fancy/pretentious joint.
