S2 Kitchen – An Unexpected Sea Urchin Feast!

Tucked away along Wellington Street in Central, S2 Kitchen call themselve an Izakaya known for a 10-layer sea urchin cup. It is a fairly small interior set with a wood flooring decor and a clean open kitchen from where food is prepared and served.

Among all Japanese offerings is the signature 10 layers sea urchin cup, which features a piece of crispy silver fish chip, plenty of sea urchin, sea grape, minced toro, shrimp and snow crabmeat. It is a generous and beautiful serving.

My favourite is a salad serving in a sea blue casserole dish, with sliced avocado, scallop and sea urchin, with a delicious olive oil-based vinaigrette. The assorted sashimi are also very neatly plated with striped jack and Hokkaido scallop, the botan prawn is plump and sweet to the max!

There are also plenty of grills and sushi rolls, such as a grilled scallop with sake, baked oyster with sea urchin and mayo; my friend and I are likely to enjoy the flamed sushi roll with a proper sear, topped with some more sea urchin and scallop.

Finally, Tai Chi, comes with stir-fried milk on purple sweet potato puree versus sea urchin on minced toro. The sea urchin somen noodle is a very huge serving, very chewy and definitely enough to share among 4.

Believe it or not, we have sea urchin ice cream to finish! After all, it has been very interesting to see how they have creatively utilized sea urchin in every dish, despite it isn’t the best sea urchin experience so far.
