White Charcoal BBQ: The Pulse is heating up with a string of high-profile restaurants taking residence in its almost-all-glass complex, and binchotan white charcoal grill specialists Shoku is among the list.

Look & Feel: Light, bright and colorful are the motifs of the day. A square bar circles an imposing binchotan grill in the middle, and tables flow on the sides.

Light and bright, in a nutshell

Meet the Chef: Chef Gavin Chow has had over a decade of experience in various Japanese establishments across the city before heading up Shoku.

One the Menu: You can order bits and pieces like sushi, salads and starters, but the stars of the show are naturally everything you can chuck onto the binchotan. This includes prawns, fish, beef, pork, lamb, scallops… the list goes on.

Service: Let the chefs bring the food straight to your plate if you sit at the bar, or deal with regular restaurant service otherwise.

Jeng: Everything, from the salt-baked gingko nuts ($128) to the grilled whole scallops ($138 each) to the red, juicy wagyu prime rib eye ($388) and the grilled eel fried rice ($228),  is lip-smackingly good and the prices happily reflect this.

Great For: A hearty group meal after a day on the beach.

FYI: The guys from Shoku also run Kishoku in CWB.
