Shukah is the latest restaurant from the Kalian Group, the same team behind The Black Toro and Sezar. Opened in May and known as Sezar more casual younger sister. The word Shukah means shop or market in Armenian and it's suiting the food at Shukah inspired by Armenian and it's neighbouring countries.

I came in on a Sunday and pretty surprise that it's located next door to Hawker Hall. Shukah has an open bar as well as an an open kitchen with plenty of seatings for two and four but they could combine some table for bigger groups. I started with some fresh mocktails then go on straight to one wonderful lunch.

Babaganoush - smoked yoghurt & flat bread ($12) and Bastourma & Egg - quail egg, garlic jam, brioche ($12/2ea). Love the babaganoush but I just wish the flat bread was a lil bit crispier and comes warm. The quail egg was beautiful with aromatic garlic jam and delicious sweet brioche underneath.

Kingfish Sashimi - avocado, cucumber, black lime ($18) and Chargrilled Pork Belly - chickpeas, green chilli, pickled radish ($22). The Kingfish sashimi was light and super fresh, I wanted more avocado and a lil bit less cucumber. In contrary, the chargrilled pork was cooked perfectly and seasoned perfectly.

Wagyu Striploin - tomato, red pepper, bone marrow salsa ($44/250gm). Love the wagyu beef so much and the bone marrow salsa. But after a while the tomato get's a lil bit over whelming maybe it's best to be shared between three or four people.

Poached Quince - brown butter labne, dill ($14) and Baklava Sundae ($14). I ordered the quince cause I wanted something light and fresh to end my lunch but turns out they give me the baklava sundae anyway. Ohhh and I'm so grateful they did. The cream on top was so creamy it's to die for with sweet crispy crumble and ice cream. I could eat this for days. Then the poached quince come with sticky quince and rich butter labne. Elegant and sweet.

It was a fantastic lunch, both me and my husband agreed that we would come back for the Baklava Sundae. It's definitely the star of Shukah and definitely a must cause anybody even somebody who does not really like baklava love it.
