This hip and hidden Japanese restaurant and bar in Tiong Bahru specializes in chicken-based dishes.
This hip and hidden Japanese restaurant and bar in Tiong Bahru oozes coolness, all mee pok shop in the front (featured in Eric Khoo's Mee Pok Man) and all low-ceilinged and copper-furnished in the back. The premium lunch and dinner menus revolve around their binchotan grill, and while there is a lot of excellent, juicy yakitori, Chef Asai Masashi's food delivers lots more. Try the grilled chicken with seasonl white truffle when it's available, and don't forget to wash it down with their brief but balanced list of cocktails
Housed in the back of a 70 year old Hua Bee mee pok store (the one made famous by Eric Khoo's Mee Pok Man), this hidden gem is accessed via a subtly marked door facing the carpark. Raw and gritty, the space features distressed concrete walls, retro blue tiles and edgy copper furnishings. It's all about set menus here (lunch from $25; dinner from $68), each including a variety of small plates—think yakitori like chicken tsukune—cooked over the charcoal grill. To drink, cocktails (aka “Japeritifs”) such as Yuzu Be Alright ($23), a mix of sake, gin, gran classico, lemon, yuzu and mint, are light and refreshing.
