Esora - Chef Shigeru Koizumi, Chef-Owner

Chef Shigeru Koizumi

After spending 15 years in some of the world’s most venerated kitchens including 3-starred Nihonryori RyuGin (Tokyo) and 2-starred Odette (Singapore), Chef Shigeru Koizumi collaborates with The Lo & Behold Group to open his first ever restaurant on Mohamed Sultan Road. Chef Koizumi merges his deep respect and knowledge of traditional Japanese cuisine together with new-found cooking techniques to tease the best possible flavours out of each ingredient. He is inspired by the belief that even one degree of temperature can affect the enjoyment of the dish, leading him to abide by a “one-degree” philosophy throughout the Esora experience.
